    About this property

    … about a mile from Southleigh, a large house beautifully converted from a barn (G191), large farmhouse (G190) and two detached cottages (G192, G193), all high on a hillside above a picturesque valley, with almost 180 degree views of amazing rolling countryside. They are surrounded by about 200 acres of fields and bluebell woods which you are welcome to wander and enjoy deer and badger watching, the stream, trout lake (fishing), duck pond (carp fishing) and the gorgeous views. An exciting range of activities is available (extra), including clay pigeon shootingamphibious vehicles and archery - tailor-made packages can be arranged. Peacocks strut the grounds, together with roaming chickens and ducks (eggs to collect), and the young, friendly owners who live next door are happy to show you their unusual pets (pigs, alpacas, ostrich, goats). Caterers can be recommended. 
    The Barn is a smashing property, detached, south-facing, comfortable and well-equipped. At the front, brilliantly positioned to enjoy the immense views, a large suntrap terrace (picnic benches, gas barbecue) and raised deck with private 8-person hot tub (covered) and further seating, plus children’s play area with trampoline, swing, slide. Beyond this, your own enclosed grassed paddock area with plenty of room for cricket or to kick a ball around. 

    Inside, smart, stylish and hugely spacious. At the front, a wonderfully light and sunny conservatory (table/chairs for 6 and comfy seating for 8, rowing machine, cross trainer) with French windows to small surrounding paved area. Porch (for coats/boots); enormous open-plan living area with big sofas (TV/Sky/DVD, Wii, woodburner) through to smart slate/oak-floored kitchen/dining area with fitted oak units and central island (TV, dishwasher, washing machine, combi-microwave, fridge-freezer plus additional larder fridge and freezer, smart red electric Aga and electric companion hob/oven) with big oak dining table; full-sized pool table and football table; downstairs loo; drying room. Off the main living area, but also with its own ramped entrance and made suitable for guests with mobility difficulties, a double bedroom (TV/DVD) with large en suite shower-room (suite) and little kitchenette/sitting area (larder fridge, microwave, TV/DVD) with sofa, table/chairs.
    Oak stairs (stairgates) from living area to first floor landing (quiet reading area with rocking chairs) and five bedrooms with en suite bathrooms (suites, showers over baths) and TVs/DVDs, all cleverly designed to make the most of the roof space (some part sloping ceilings/Velux windows): the large master double, another neat double, and a twin, all looking out over fields behind; at the front, with rolling valley views, another smart twin and a long, narrowish room with four singles (truckles, sloping ceiling, best for maximum of 2 adults/2 children or 4 children).

    Mrs J Mann
    ""Fantastic views, house fully met all expectations and more. Joanne the owner was really helpful and friendly""
    Mr R McGregor
    ""This house was perfect, we had a long weekend with friends celebrating my wife's birthday. The house had everything we needed and more! Great living space perfect for a get together. Hot tube was well used with great views. Have already recommended this property to family and friends, and have already started talking about next year!! Great time had by all - Thank you""
    ""We had a fantastic 3 night weekend stay at the Barn in Southleigh. There were 10 of us staying for a family celebration. This is a definite "party house" with such a wonderfully big living/eating/cooking space. The extra kitchen proved to be fantastically useful too. Extremely comfortable beds and lots of much appreciated "extras" with games/DVDs etc.""
    Mr R Brown
    ""The Barn is a very large well equipped property ideally suited to family get togethers. Aga cooking for a novice was a challenge but the results were edible! Typical Devon narrow lanes and a ford (depending on the route taken) lead to the property, but the journey was worth it! Owners and staff were very friendly.""
    Mrs C Howells
    ""A lovely property, in a brilliant location. Easy reach for coast and pretty villages. Perfect for a relaxing holiday for a large group of people, plenty of space, lots to do, and views from the jacuzzi are fantastic!""
    Julie griffin
    ""Great place for a family get together large family room for all your entertainment very clean and well equipped.the grounds are great for your daily walk take your wellies for collecting your daily eggs owners don't bother you but are always there if you need them this is my second visit and Iam sure I will be back thank you Joanne and mark for sharing your lovely home""
    Jo Beal
    ""Wadden farm and staying at the Barn fulfilled all our expectations. Three generations thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Every day was an adventure kite flying at Branscoombe, crabbing at Beer, children running in and out of the sea at Sidmouth. Swan pedelo was a great hit. Our youngest grandson cried when we put him in the car to go home...he wanted to stay. This location is escapism, how they loved the animals. Happy days...""
    Mr & Mrs Sawyer
    ""The Barn is a fantastic property (real wow factor)... Well equipped for a large group.. Set in a beautiful location, stunning views... Our stay was definitely enhanced by the beautiful Percy the peacock... We will definitely be returning 😃 ""
    ""This property definitely had the 'wow' factor. Beautifully clean, the owners have thought of absolutely everything. Our party of 11 (ages 17 - 59) didn't really want to leave the house. So comfortable, so much to do (or not) and the hot tub was very well used. Even cooking for 11 every day was a pleasure, the kitchen was so well equipped and organised, and an AGA!!! This is our fifth booking with Helpful Holidays, but the first property we've really wanted to go back to.....and we can't wait to next year. The 'Worsell' party""
    Mrs T Richardson
    ""The Barn at Waddens Farm completely blew us away, it surpassed all our expectations. The property was well thought out with plenty of room for all. The hot tub was a delight, even on a frosty morning! The children loved collecting their own eggs for breakfast. All in all a wonderful holiday home.""
    ""Excellent property for a short break in Devon, great for a large group - well specified and spacious accommodation, and very friendly and helpful owner. Kids and dogs were made welcome and loved being on the farm, with chickens etc.""
    ""Friendly owner, beautiful views, great property and near many good locations. Quite isolated- car essential and recommendation not to drive in evening. Book Sunday lunch instead!""
    Mrs & Mrs Hirst.
    ""This is the 2nd time we have visited the farm, staying in the smaller farm house before. They are both beautiful properties, all 13 of us (ages ranging from 5 to 72) had a fantastic time. Have already recommended them to friends. Jo was a brilliant host, very friendly and helpful.""
