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. Thatched is also self-contained, with a large kitchen-dining-sitting room with stunning views over the valley. There are three ensuite bedrooms in Thatched.
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.
The private gardens are not overlooked and each has a wonderful view of the unspoilt valley below. Ample hardwood furniture and a gas Weber BBQ’s make eating outdoors a pleasure. (Gas included and the BBQ is cleaned and ready to go).
The Winery’s large sitting room 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.
