Halsbeer Farm sits deep in 30 acres of unspoilt, beautiful Devon farmland at the foot of the Blackdown Hills, and consists of a number of converted, thatched barns. They have been lovingly restored and make a wonderful home from home for your family holiday in the heart of Devon’s picturesque countryside. The properties make a cosy getaway for two or an extended family (total combined 22 guests), and the pets. The farm itself dates back to William the Conqueror and was mentioned in the Domesday Book survey of 1086. Explore the surrounding countryside either on foot in the neighbouring Blackdown Hills, or by car with the historic market town of Honiton and the majestic Jurassic Coast just a short drive away. There is also shared use of a heated indoor swimming pool to keep the kids entertained without the need for travelling, and ample space in which to kick a ball around or take the dogs for a well deserved walk. Younger children can entertain themselves in the enclosed play area with swings and wendy house whilst the young adults of the group can sink into a book or get online with wi-fi access in each of the properties.
Swallow Cottage (ref 31207), Apple Cottage (ref 31206), Cider Cottage (ref 31208) and Haybarn Cottage (ref 31209) used to be an integral part of the working farm and date back to the Domesday Book although a lot has changed since then. All the cottages have been carefully restored with flagstone floors, oak beams and furnished with beautiful beds and ample furniture. Relax in front of the TV, get online or cook up a feast in the well-equipped kitchen. Swallow Cottage, Cider Cottage and Haybarn Cottage are all wheelchair-friendly. There’s also plenty of communal space around the farm including a marvellous, shared conservatory which overlooks a large, well-stocked fish pond for duck and moorhen watching. The conservatory can seat up to twenty two people for dinner and is a great sun trap. In the evening guests can light the woodburner for a little extra comfort and simply relax with a good book.
