The property

… 2 miles from Bideford, quietly situated on the edge of a valley, is Pillhead Farm, a 130 acre working sheep farm with paddocks and plenty of space for guests to roam. Within the original farmstead are four cottages carefully converted from barns and the oldest part of the original farmhouse. We let three. The cottages share the grounds, a splendid outdoor solar-heated swimming pool (15’ x 30’ x 4’ to 5’ deep) with paddling pool (10' x 9' x 1'6" deep), available mid May to mid September, a sunbathing terrace (loungers), mown orchard and picnic area. Each cottage is individual and spacious and quite separate from the others, with its own outside space. Arrival after 4pm.

... The Corn Tallet is ‘upside down’. From your garden area (picnic table), 10 stone steps up to door (low lintel) into fitted kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with breakfast table/chairs. Large living/dining room with a sense of space, wonderful beams to apex, TV/DVD and door (4 steps down) to garden. Stairs (stairgate) down to three bedrooms – step down to a double with four-poster bed, TV and en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin (zip-linkable to 6' double), both with French windows to balcony area, and 2 steps up to a further twin with TV. Bathroom (suite, shower over bath, bidet) and separate loo.
