Lots of space for 10 adults + 2 under 10s and a cot sized infant in Little Barton Farmhouse and 6 adults and 2 cot sized infants in the Cottage in light, airy rooms. The farmhouse has a big table which seats up to 16/18 comfortably with a farmhouse kitchen, equipped with a big electric range cooker: 3 ovens, 5 burners, 2 hotplates, larder fridge, freezer, 2 Belfast sinks to make it easy to cater for larger groups. Outside school holidays, dates can be flexible and it is fine to book for a couple of days or a weekend. (The houses can also be booked separately). Both houses have full central heating as well as wood burners, and the open fire in the farmhouse are welcoming all year round.
The space has been used for weddings, celebrations and reunions, as well as workshops: teambuilding, yoga etc. - plans to have writer's retreats and eco building courses here in the future. There is also some additional space, which can be adapted to suit lots of different purposes, by arrangement. Lots of different catering options available, including hog roasts and organic Thai. The barn works well for all sorts of dancing and there are several really good local bands offering a wide range of music. A local parish hall (15 mins drive) is available for £80 a day as a venue for groups needing a large heated space with a sprung floor. Please ask.
Little Barton Farmhouse and Cottage give you magnificent views of the Atlantic to the west and Lundy and the Bristol Channel to the north - you can hear the roar of the sea at high tide from the gardens. This is really rural, in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, down a flower bordered green lane access track. Spectacular walks from the house, only 10 mins to the Coast Path - half an hour from the house down to the water's edge or, in the other direction, to Hartland village. Dogs welcome as far as the kitchens in both houses.
There is plenty to do for all ages, with beautiful local beaches and excellent surfing, as well as fantastic tea rooms, houses and gardens to look at and general family entertainment nearby. Both houses have big lawned gardens, badminton, lots of DVDs, books, board games and there are tuned piano in both houses. Bude nightlife is only 30 mins away by car.
Little Barton is run on broadly organic principles and has its own water supply and clean water sewage system. Well raised seasonal veg. is available locally and there's a farmers' market on the first Sunday of the month - lots of delicious food including excellent cheeses and organic meat. Eco cleaning products provided. Sorry, no smoking indoors!
