Accommodation & Features

Spacious self catering holiday accommodation with games room, hot tub, log burner and original features

The Big Barn is a large holiday cottage in North Devon providing the perfect self catering accommodation for families or larger groups of friends. The five bedroom holiday home can comfortably sleep up to 16 guests and also welcomes dogs. The house is situated in the North Devon countryside close to High Bickington, which is within easy reach of many of the area’s popular attractions.

From the parking area guests walk along a path introducing them to their private garden before entering the house into the main sitting room, which is at the heart of the property.

Living Room

Guests enter the house into the main central living room, which has plenty of natural light and lots of character. There are stairs leading to the first floor, comfy sofas and an armchair. A wonderful feature of this room is the double-sided wood burning stove, which provides heat and ambience to both this and the second living room.

Second Reception Room

Next door to the main living room is a second, smaller reception room. This double aspect room has plenty of seating with sofas, armchairs and bean bags provided. Entertainment is also on hand with a smart TV, a DVD player and a karaoke machine. Like the main living room this reception room also benefits from the double sided wood burning stove.

Ground Floor Bedroom

Along the corridor from the main living room is the ground floor bedroom. This bedroom features a double bed and has direct access to the ground floor bathroom.

Ground Floor Bathroom

Accessed either via the main corridor or the ground floor bedroom is the downstairs family bathroom. This bathroom is fitted with a shower, a wash basin and a WC.


At the far end of the house is the large, open plan kitchen/diner. This modern, spacious kitchen is perfect for large groups with lots of work surfaces and plenty of space for everyone to gather. Appliances in the recently renovated kitchen include an electric hob, a dishwasher, a double oven, an American style fridge/freezer and a smaller fridge for additional space. Please note the washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the games room.

The dining table within the open plan kitchen/diner lends itself to family and group meals and can comfortably seat up to 16.
