The Hay House
have carefully converted and restored the old Hay House and adjacent Dairy
to make a single, exclusive holiday house for up to six persons. The
conversion has been done with traditional building materials throughout,
such as lime plaster and lime based paint. The
result is a traditional Devon farm dwelling with a comfortable and relaxed
ambience. Being the only holiday house on the farm, the Hay House offers
total peace and privacy with only the ebb and flow of traditional farm
life to punctuate the day.
Hay House is part of the old farm yard which, like the principal farmhouse
is listed grade II. The front
door of the Hay House opens onto a private fenced garden with adjacent car
parking. The Hay House enjoys
fantastic, far reaching views of classic Devon countryside which can be
enjoyed from all the main rooms of the house and garden.
life continues around you with frequent sightings of Dorset Down Sheep,
Devon Red Cows, and the general farm calendar of haymaking,
hedging, lambing etc. You are invited to explore and enjoy the farm as
part of your stay. There may
be restrictions to certain areas of the farm depending on the time of
year; hayfields are shut off prior to cutting, cows need to be left alone
during calving. Not withstanding these type of exceptions, we invite you to
enjoy the farm and chat to us about anything of interest. - Farm
produce is also available fresh or frozen.
