    • “Diedre was an amazing host, very welcoming, even took my arm when I was carrying the baby to take me around to the property, checked on us before leaving to make sure all was ok too. I would love to go back to visit. A beautiful and immaculate property that exceeded my expectations, I booked it for my partner and daughters birthdays and it was the perfect base for us.”

    Miss Twiner, Melksham, November 2018

    • “The Cider Barn provided an excellent stay and place to explore South Devon. The owner made us very welcome and the Barn was extremely clean and well appointed. It is very spacious and thoughtfully decorated. Would highly recommend and we will hopefully return in the spring.”

    Mr Bal, New Barnet, July 2018

    • “The Cider Barn was a fantastic property which far exceeded our expectations. It was larger than we expected and fitted out to a very high standard. All new fittings and appliances and very clean. The owner Deirdre lives in farmhouse next door and was most helpful. Would definitely rate 5* and recommend.”

    Mrs Green, Milton Keynes, July 2018

    • “The barn is a wonderful conversion and probably the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. Deirdre is lovely and one hand if needed for any information etc. Good location for days out and a pub within walking distance.”

    Mrs Leathley, Bury, June 2018

    • “The Cider Barn exceeded all expectations , in forty years of high quality cottage/barn UK holidays, this was the best.”

    Mrs Clack, READING, May 2018

    • “A beautiful converted barn, very comfortable beds all en-suite, fantastic kitchen with everything you could possibly need, very peaceful and quiet garden with sun-trap - the only sounds we could hear were the pheasants and sheep! Lovely walks for the dog. Small working-farm with delightful owner next door who went out of her way to meet our needs. Highly recommend - we would return.”

    Mr & Mrs Ralphs, MALVERN, April 2018

The Property

A mile from Down Thomas, quietly tucked away down a private farm drive, a stylish and spacious cottage with beautifully planted, enclosed suntrap garden (table/chairs) behind. Newly converted from an attached barn on the owners’ small traditional working farm (arable, beef cattle), it was once the dairy and cider farm for Langdon Court estate, a Domesday manor of Wembury. The original manor is now a country house hotel (bar/restaurant open to non-residents), just a 350 yard stroll away; Wembury Beach and Coast Path, around a mile.
Three shallow steps down to entrance and tiled hall. Step down to chic country-style kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric range-style cooker with 5-ring induction hob) with timber worktops, slate floors, glass-topped feature well and big pine dining table. Double doors to snug/TV room (smart TV) with huge original pine door to generous living room (woodburner, smart TV/DVD/PVR, iPod dock) with glazed door to drive. Ground-floor shower-room (suite). Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier). Stairs up to landing area (armchairs, glazed doors to garden) and three bedrooms, all beautifully furnished with high ceilings, exposed apex beams and shuttered windows with long views over rolling farmland - two huge doubles (5' oak beds), one with dressing room and en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), the other with en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin with en suite shower-room.
