Holiday Cottage Reviews for Hornshayne Farmhouse
Hornshayne Farmhouse, Farway, Devon,
Description of the cottage holiday
… on the edge of Woodbridge hamlet, ¾ mile from Farway, is Hornshayne Farmhouse, a large, beautiful and imposing thatched farmhouse adjoining the owners’ cottage in the midst of this busy, working, 335 acre dairy/arable farm (you're welcome to help feed calves). There’s been a house here since Saxon times; ‘gentrified’ in the 1700s, this farmhouse retains many original and fascinating features (still a salting cupboard and ceiling chamber in the kitchen). Outside, plenty of open space (river - trout fishing, ponds, walks with outstanding views, and miles of unspoilt countryside) surrounding the very pretty garden (picnic table, gas barbecue, giant draughts, unfenced shallow stream; great play castle, Wendy house and sandpit, shared with owners) and games barn (quarter-sized billiard table, table tennis, karaoke machine, TV, fridge, loo). Within walking distance of the East Devon Way.
Inside, living room (‘living flame’ fire, TV/DVD/video) and enormous, hub-of-the-house kitchen/dining room (huge fireplace, oil-fired Rayburn, electric cooker, dishwasher, microwave, American-style fridge-freezer), both with original slate flag floor; tiny games room (TV/DVD, PlayStation); children’s playroom (toys); shower-room (suite); utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, sink).
Upstairs, five bedrooms (all with TV, two with DVD) on three levels:
Level 1: double with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath).
Level 2: family bedroom (6’ zip-linked double or twin and single bed) with en suite shower-room (suite, two washbasins); two double (one with 6’ zip-linked double or twin); and bathroom (suite with corner bath and separate shower).
Level 3 (attic): low lintel to very large master double (6’ bed) with en suite bathroom (suite with roll-top bath plus hand-shower). Spring water. Professional catering and ready meals available. Damages Deposit £300. A comfortable, welcoming house with fascinating farm experiences for all generations.
