The property

… about a mile from Southleigh, a large house beautifully converted from a barn (G191), a large farmhouse (G190) and two detached cottages (G192, G193), all high on a hillside above a picturesque valley, with almost 180 degree views of amazing rolling countryside. They are surrounded by around 200 acres of fields and bluebell woods which you are welcome to wander and enjoy deer and badger watching, the stream, trout lake (fishing), duck pond (carp fishing) and the gorgeous views. An exciting range of activities is available (extra), including clay pigeon shooting, amphibious vehicles and archery - tailor-made packages can be arranged. Peacocks strut the grounds, together with roaming chickens and ducks (eggs to collect), and the friendly owners are happy to show you the unusual pets (pigs, alpacas, ostrich, goats). Caterers can be recommended.

… on the 200 acre farmstead which you are welcome to wander, Lower Wadden Farmhouse is south-facing and detached with an attached annexe, garden (furniture, gas barbecue, swing, slide, climbing frame), a summer house/games room (half-sized pool table, table tennis, table football) and, in the large central courtyard between the house and its annexe, a covered hot tub and trampoline.

Inside the farmhouse, plenty of room to relax. Low step from entrance lobby to hall; downstairs loo; two living rooms (TV/DVD, Wii) - one with door to central courtyard - the other enormous with plenty of comfy seating, electric flame-effect fire and door to light and sunny conservatory (overlooking the fabulous view, French windows to the patio); step down to dining room; large fitted kitchen/breakfast room (dishwasher, combi-microwave, gas range cooker with 5 burners/2 ovens/separate grill, 3 steps up to living room); utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, fridge-freezer, sink) and door to courtyard. Oak floors downstairs. Two staircases (stairgates) up to five bedrooms – two double (5’ beds, TV/DVD, one with valley views); a twin (TV/DVD) with view over courtyard and sloping ceiling; another twin (TV) with views of the valley; and a third small twin (TV) overlooking the courtyard with part sloping ceiling; three bathrooms (suites - one with hand-shower and sloping ceiling; one with hand-shower, separate shower and sloping ceiling; and 3 steps up to one with corner bath plus hand-shower).


The single-storey annexe overlooks the courtyard. Open-plan living (TV/DVD)/dining/kitchen (microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine) with large French windows to the courtyard and hot tub; a family bedroom with 5’ bed and two singles (one a truckle) and TV; bathroom (suite with corner bath plus hand-shower and separate shower). The annexe is suitable for people with limited mobility.
9 TVs/5 DVDs. Damages Deposit £250. There is plenty of space both inside and out, and plenty to do and see.

It's a lovely house with plenty of space for a large family group and lots to do - hot tub, games room, trampoline, chickens, animals - which is ideal for a British summer break with the inevitable rainy spell. Beautiful, peaceful countryside setting, within easy reach of the coast and many places of interest. We have never been disappointed with a Helpful Holidays property.
