Underfloor heating throughout make the slate floors wonderfully warm in the winter and cool in the summer. In the warmer months, there is a heated outdoor pool and private enclosed gardens with Weber BBQ’s. There is also a games room with full sized table tennis and table football. In the cooler months, there are wood-burners, for which logs are provided.
The Winery gained its name having formerly been an apple winery and is a unique, enormous and lavishly appointed barn. We even supply champagne ice buckets! We have a list of excellent local caterers, and Book a Cook is a popular option and even includes having a fish and chip van come into the courtyard.
The Winery, Flint and Thatched are detached from one another and located around three sides of a traditional Devon farm courtyard. Each can be private from one another, but are just a short distance apart if booking collectively. Each has dedicated parking, and each has its own private enclosed garden, not overlooking the other gardens. Please have a look at the site plan, under Floor Plans.
Flint is also self-contained with its own kitchen-dining-sitting room which can be a private quiet space within a large family group. It can also be set up to suit members of the party who might have limited mobility issues (M1). Three ensuite bedrooms are in Flint.
Thatched is also self-contained, with a large kitchen-dining-sitting room with stunning views over the valley. Three ensuite bedrooms are in Thatched.
The private gardens are not overlooked and have wonderful views of the unspoilt valley below. Ample hardwood furniture and gas Weber BBQ’s make eating outdoors a pleasure. (Gas included and the BBQ is cleaned and ready to go).
The large sitting room in The Winery has French doors that open above the terrace and offer a wonderful aspect of Southleigh valley. There are plenty of squashy sofas to relax into and a wood burner supplied with logs from our own fallen trees. A wide screen TV and DVD player and small music system with iPod dock. Both Flint and Thatched are fully self-contained with their own kitchens and dining and sitting areas. The breadth of accommodation allows large groups to be together and dine together but also allows for quiet moments if needed. We can provide cots (not bed linen), high chairs (two types) and stair-gates and up to two put-up beds for children. We can also provide, free of charge, a range of baby kit.
There are also two additional cloakrooms, one with a reclaimed prison door! The main floor, which is at ground level for the main entrances, has the sitting room, four ensuite bedrooms, and a kitchen, the upper floor has five ensuite bedrooms, and the lower ground floor the enormous kitchen diner and an ensuite bedroom, all with doors opening onto the terrace. The floors are accessed via locally crafted wide spiral staircases. Please see floor plans for full layout. We are within easy reach of Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Tesco and many good local food shops, and can also accept Waitrose Deliver, tesco.com and Sainsbury’s online deliveries if required. Both on our website and upon arrival you are provided with a guide to local restaurants, where to buy local food, local take-aways and a full local information pack. Our free WiFi is adequate for emailing and searching the web.
