    Mrs Gledhill

    “This was the second time we have visited Hornshayne Farm and we had a lovely holiday.”

    There are lots of things to keep the children happy and the play area is brilliant, but the bark on the ground seems to have been replaced with what I can only describe as small bits of wood.The problem is that there are very sharp bits of wood and two of the children came down the slide and scratched the back of their legs. As we had a two year old we were always worried he would fall and get spells in his hands or worse. ...

    There are lots of things to keep the children happy and the play area is brilliant, but the bark on the ground seems to have been replaced with what I can only describe as small bits of wood.The problem is that there are very sharp bits of wood and two of the children came down the slide and scratched the back of their legs. As we had a two year old we were always worried he would fall and get spells in his hands or worse. It’s a great place to have a family holiday and the amenities are brilliant. The children loved walking around the farm and we even saw a calf being born which was really special. The children absolutely loved Maud the Spanial, when she heard our cars pulling in the drive she came straight round to the house and stayed with us until bed time, a very sweet and gentle dog.

The property

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 for children's fun and tiddler fishing, ponds, walks over miles of unspoiled countryside with outstanding views, quiet roads to run) surrounding the 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).

Inside, living room (‘living flame’ fire, TV/DVD) and enormous hub-of-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 (5' sleigh bed) with en suite bathroom (suite with roll-top bath plus hand-shower).

Spring water.

Professional catering and ready meals available.

Damages Deposit £500.

A comfortable, welcoming house with fascinating farm experiences for all generations. Farway: valley farming village (church) in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Blackdown Hills.
