Thatched, Higher Wiscombe

The Thatched Barn comfortably sleeps six in three en-suite bedrooms and features a stunning large open-plan kitchen/living /dining room with a wood-burning stove (logs, eco firelighters, kindling and matches provided) and far reaching views of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is underfloor heating and double- glazing throughout, making it warm in winter with the slate floors keeping it cool in summer. It has a private garden with hardwood garden furniture, and in the summer months an Weber gas barbecue, (clean and ready for use, with tools and gas provided).

The oak and granite farmhouse-style kitchen area is extremely well equipped, with a range cooker with gas hob and electric oven, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Dualit Toaster, microwave, and washing machine.

The sitting area and kitchen have slate floors and large squashy sofas to relax into. This cottage has Wifi which is fine for emailing and searching the web.

There is a games room and in the summer an outdoor heated pool.

The cottage is part thatched in the traditional manner, and part slate roofed. The bedrooms are carpeted, and are furnished to a very high standard, all having under-floor heating. The living/dining room and bedrooms all feature vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. One bedroom has a four-poster 5ft double bed, with an en-suite bathroom with luxurious roll-top bath. Both the other bedrooms can either be a 6ft wide double or 3ft twins, both having en-suite shower-rooms.

There is also a separate cloakroom adjacent to the main living area and a tumble dryer in the boiler room. We can provide cots (not bed linen), high chairs (two types) and stair-gates.

We want to make sure that whilst you are having a five-star break so are your dogs. We are truly dog friendly, having two ourselves, and know just how much they enjoy running and playing in our 52 acres of rolling Devon countryside. So please bring your dog with you and enjoy some of the finest countryside and walks that Devon has to offer.

There is a lovely ‘Doggy Hamper” details below, the star item is the Dicky Bag, these are hand-made in Cornwall and can be attached to leads, belts or handbags, and you’ll no longer have to walk the beach swinging your poop bags! Yes, you do get to keep the Dicky Bag! We will always consider having more than two dogs in a cottage or group. However, you do need to ask first, as there may not be enough space if the dogs are large, or we may have already have booked in numerous dogs, we will though always try to say yes.

The 52-acre farm is perfect for walking your dog directly from the cottages. We have paths mown through our fields, the orchard and into the wet wood where there are a million new smells for your dog to discover along with streams, woodland and large open spaces to run free. There may be some livestock on two of the four main fields but there will always be 30 acres or so of freedom and exploration for your dog.

To make your dog’s stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible we provide the following:

Dog crate in the cottage, with a sherpa cage mat. A Dicky bag. These are great to avoid having to carry the filled poop bags in your hands, yes you get to keep it, comes with bio poo bags. Dog bowls, dog treats, food mats and poop bags are also provided. Doggy Rocks provided in water bowls to avoid yellow patches on the lawns. Throws provided for covering the furniture. Pet towels provided. Separate bin for the doggy poop bags. A map of the walks at Higher Wiscombe. A Guide to dog friendly walks, including along the coastal path, The East Devon Way and which beaches are dog friendly at which time of year. A guide to dog friendly attractions. Emergency dog food supplies. Outside tap for the really muddy characters. Stair gate.

We are within easy reach of Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Tesco and many good local food shops, and can also accept Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsbury’s deliveries if required. Both on our website and upon arrival you are provided with a guide on local restaurants, where to buy local food, local take-aways and a full local information pack.
