Little Kersham is situated in the picturesque Taw Valley in North Devon. The house is nestled in the small hamlet of Bridge Reeve and close to the River Taw. The house is surrounded by outstanding country and is a cyclist and walkers' paradise with winding woodland paths. Little Kersham is a detached converted barn set within its own mature gardens. The house is very spacious, has been sympathetically converted with wood beams and floors throughout. The property has lovely quiet surroundings however is well positioned to explore this beautiful part of Devon. There is a wealth of high quality tourist attractions with nearby such as Rosemoor, The Big Sheep, The Milky Way, Kilarney Springs and Exmoor Zoo. Dartmoor and Exmoor are within 30 minutes drive.
My wife and I live on the outskirts of London.
Richard Quinn purchased this barn in 2007
My wife and I bought Little Kersham with the intention of retiring to Devon, but I keep putting the retirement date back!. We are both active walkers and wanted a home that had accessibility to both national parks and the north Devon coastline. We use the house on a monthly basis with our friends and family and have become part of the local community.
We all agreed this was one of the best Christmas houses we have rented (we have rented many) Mrs K December 2013
Enjoyed a great stay in this lovely cottage. A great place for a holiday. Simply the best ever Mr T - July/August 2012.
Just what we had in mind when we were looking for a special place for our family celebration. The cottage and its surroundings are stunning and we are well positioned to explore all that Devon had to offer. Can't wait to come back. Mrs W - August 2012
The house is amazing and in an ideal location to visit either north or south coasts. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. Mrs S August 2012
Superb facilities, a marvelous location and beautiful garden. For a large family we found it perfect. Mrs K - August 2012
Little Kersham is a fabulous cottage, well equipped and spacious. The gardens were immaculate. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to friends and family - July 2011
Comfortable and easy house, well equipped for catering, beautifully decorated for Christmas. Easy for both dog small children. Stunning walks with amazing views. Could move in!
What a fab week we had. Home from home. Kids loved exploring. House and grounds are amazing. Communication between owner Richard and us was outstanding. We loved staying at little kersham thanks Richard and family
Richard, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage is as beautiful as the pictures. We enjoyed walking around the grounds and garden. The cottage was clean and just like home. The home has been developed with love and care. Everything is there ready to go for your convenience. It was warm and cosy, and the addition of a wood-burning fire make the perfect end to a busy day. Would love to come back when the garden s in full bloom. Thanks again for letting us stay at your lovely cottage.
Little Kershaw is a homely beautifully stylish barn conversion expertly done in an understated classy way. It is set in glorious countryside up a single track road 2 miles from Chulmleigh, a friendly community set high on a hill and which boasts some country pubs, a church, a deli, a small spar shop and 'open to all golf' course. It is a great base from which to explore north and mid devon- e.g the beach at Westwood Ho - don't miss the drive from Lynton to Minehead over Exmoor. There are some lovely country pubs nearby- the globe at Kings Nympton (a 3 mile drive) is a real find- or if you have kids who wish to go-kart then Barnstable (12 miles or so away) is worth a trip. Otherwise just soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the lovely walks. Don't be alarmed by a public footpath that runs alongside one part of the property and which is rarely used (in the week we were there we saw just someone on two separate occasions use it). Lastly in Richard and Vicky Quinn you could not have nicer owners who are available on the phone if need be as is their housekeeper. In summary you would be hard pressed to find a better country retreat in which to enjoy a week etc rest
Little Kersham is in an idyllic spot just above the river where the only break in the peace is the dawn chorus! Despite its quiet location, it's very handy for reaching both north and south Devon - by train if preferred. The house itself is very comfortable and excellently equipped for large groups; the Aga makes the kitchen a cosy base but there is also ample room for loafing around in the lounge and a formal dining room if you need it. Plenty of garden to sit out in, too. We had a great time, thank you.
Richard greeted us at LK after a long journey from the North East of England, providing a quick overview of the house and grounds.
A lovely bottle of red was also waiting for us, which was a lovely gesture.
LK is stocked with everything you could imagine and more! You can just turn up, unpack, relax and enjoy your stay.
The gardens and surrounding area are wonderful and I would highly recommend LK as a holiday destination. Make sure you visit the Thai van that visits the local village once a week, the food is fab. We also enjoyed a wonderful evening meal and several cream tea's at the Fox and Hounds, Eggesford. This is more than a country pub and is completely dog friendly.
If Devon wasn't so far away from where we live, I would visit again tomorrow.
Saunton, Braunton Burrows, Crow Point, Croyde and Westwood Ho all within 30 minutes drive from the house. The house is also equal 30 minute driving distance from Dartmoor and Exmoor. The house is situated close to the Tarka trail.
2 miles from Eggesford Railway Station.
Village of Chulmleigh 1.5 miles and Barnstaple 20 minutes drive. The city of Exeter is 30 minutes drive.
Chulmleigh is situated close by and has a range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Barnstaple is the nearest town (12 miles) and is reached through the scenic Taw Valley. The town has all the major supermarkets, a pannier market and additionally has a theatre, cinema and leisure facilities. The popular market town of South Molton has a weekly farmers market and a variety of shops, antiques and curio shops.
