We have three cottages which are superb stone converted barns in the picturesque 200 year old farmstead of Higher Hendham Barns. There are eight barns and we live in Pillar Barn which is the largest cottage, and have three of the other barns to rent out for holiday lets. All three cottages are adjacent and with the use of a large shared courtyard, they are perfect for several families or large groups staying together. They have been furnished and equipped to provide high quality self catering accommodation.
All our cottages overlook our two acre field where we have a large children's playground with a large climbing frame, swings, slide, climbing ropes, trampoline, see-saw, children's picnic table with built in sand play unit, football goal, swing ball and badminton net. We also have numerous chickens, three alpacas, and a large vegetable garden. We are able to provide fresh eggs and seasonal vegetables to guests. Living on-site means that we are able to meet you and to help ensure that you have everything you need for a perfect holiday.
South Devon is blessed with a mild climate for most of the year, making the region an ideal location for holidays and short breaks at any time.
Higher Hendham Cottages are in the heart of rural South Hams in Devon - close to Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Dartmouth, and Totnes.
The location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is close to beaches, numerous water sports facilities, beautiful walks along the nearby Avon Valley, the South Coast Path for unbeatable sea views, or a little further afield to the spectacular wilds on Dartmoor.
The area has something for everyone, at any time of year and in any weather. Being in the centre of the South Hams, (just look at a map of the area to prove the point), you are within easy reach of a huge selection of places to visit and explore.
Whether you are after an action packed activity holiday or just a relaxing laid back break from your normal life, there is an enormous choice.
The area is ideal for beaches, surfing, sailing, fishing, boat trips, golf, tennis, riding, cycling and shooting, and a huge selection of beautiful walks, several right from the doorstep.
Nearby are an excellent selection of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and a huge selection of local shops, craft centres and art galleries.
Our cottages all have a folder and guides giving detailed information of places to go and things to do, and we can give our own suggestions and recommendations if you would like help.
We suggest you also add your favourite places in our Visitors Book to help other guests and to jog your memory when you come back !
The cottage is reverse level with an open plan living area on the first floor with a lounge area with two sofas (one a sofa bed), dining table for four, and a well equipped kitchen with an excellent range of appliances - dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, electric hob and fan oven, microwave and fridge.
The cottage has a high vaulted ceiling with white painted beams and is very well lit with ceiling spotlights and table lamps. There are lovely views from the living area out over our field. To the front is a large private garden lawn and to the side down some steps is a secluded private patio with table and chairs and BBQ for 'al fresco' dining.
The main bedroom has a double bed and the second smaller bedroom has bunk beds. We can provide a cot, high chair and pushchair, and stair gate for families with young children. Both bedrooms have good quality duvets, cotton bed linen and towels, a wardrobe and drawers. The family bathroom has a combined bath and shower.
