Yenworthy Barn, Countisbury

Yenworthy Barn in Oare sleeps up to 10 guests in four bedrooms. Set in a spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park, with views of the Channel, this is one of two traditional barns on the farm that has been sympathetically converted to offer a high quality accommodation.

Yenworthy Barn in Oare will certainly appeal to countryside admirers and walkers, there's fantastic walking direct from the door and around 13 miles of footpaths to explore! Yenworthy Barn is part of Yenworthy Farm, set in ‘Doone Country’, and actually appears in the Lorna Doone novel itself. The gun, which was supposedly used to repel the ‘Doones’, still hangs in the farmhouse to this day. This working farm once had its own mill and the old water wheel can still be seen at the far end of the Barn.

The property is a converted barn with an upside-down layout. Entrance to the property is on to the first floor, into the spacious open-plan kitchen-dining-living area, one of the features that makes this property so special and characterful - the perfect spot for spending time with friends and family, whatever the weather! There's also one double bedroom on this level, with accessible shower en-suite. Downstairs are three further bedrooms, one double (with en-suite shower room), one twin and one family room comprising double and bunk beds. There's also a family bathroom with shower and bath, toilet and hand basin, and an additional separate toilet with hand basin.

On the first floor (entrance level), there is an enormous space for sitting, eating and partying and a large well equipped kitchen. There is a bedroom on this floor with an accessible bathroom (i.e. wheelchair access) with the remainder of the bedrooms downstairs.The Barn has a patio for sitting/eating out and an enclosed gardens for children and/or dogs. In addition, there is access to all the farm fields and streams and children can go far and wide in complete safety. Although there are farm dogs, they are friendly and very disciplined and they seem to rub along happily with visitors, both canine and human!

There is direct access to a myriad of paths for walkers, including the coast path and plenty of circular routes. There is a beach just below the farm which is fun to walk to but it is pebbly and rocky and not suitable for swimming. However, there are lovely beaches nearby - 15 minutes or so to Lee Abbey beach at Lynton and fabulous surfing beaches 45-60 minutes away at Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe. Horse riding is available nearby..

Yenworthy Barn is approached via private drive (shared with the farm and two further holiday cottages). There is parking for 3 cars directly outside the property. Further cars can be parked nearby if extra spaces are required.

Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement (maximum of 4). A supplementary fee of £15 will be added to your invoice per dog.
Please note: this property is situated on a working farm therefore you must ensure your dog is kept under your control at all times, as there is likely to be livestock nearby.
Furthermore, please do not allow you dogs on the furniture or upstairs and do not leave them alone in the property at any time.

This property is strictly non-smoking.

The property will be ready from 4 pm on the day of your arrival. Please depart by 10 am on the last day of your stay. Please leave the property clean and tidy so that we can guarantee it will be ready on time for our next guests.
