This cosy barn welcomes pets and four of their human guests!
The barn was originally the automated milking parlour fitted in the 1950’s giving Andrew’s grandparents a slightly easier life. Although slightly smaller than the other three barns at Pitt Farm, its open plan downstairs area allows plenty of space for weary legs to rest and recuperate after many country and coastal walks .
The Milking Parlour backs onto open hill side with access to a public footpath leading to the heritage coastal footpath. There are two public houses within walking distance, one being the Fountain Head which is just a couple minutes up the lane.
One of the larger barns to be converted, the Old Cow stall was used in the very early days for milking by hand (with a stool and bucket!) Due to a sympathetic conversion this barn provides spacious living areas for four people.
Underfloor heating provided by our bio-mass boiler keeps the barn light and airy in the summer months and warm and comforting in the winter.
The local pub is a couple of minutes up the lane with public footpaths leading to the sea or woodlands from the field behind. Dogs are very welcome.
Named after Andrew’s father, Bob’s barn is the closest of the three converted barns to the main farm house. This barn was originally used for storing hay and farming utilities. When the farm stopped having cattle Bob would use this barn for storage of old motorbikes and other ‘toys’! It enjoys views of the hillside to the rear, where deer, foxes and pheasants regularly visit.
This barn sleeps four guest and welcomes dogs.
Out of the farm yard gate leads you through the fields and up to the public footpath taking you along the cliff side.Turning left takes you to Branscombe beach or further on to Beer, or turning right takes you to the beautiful town of Sidmouth.
The Lodge is a detached, converted barn at the entrance of the old farm yard. Sleeping six people in three bedrooms, it has ground floor facilities and an enclosed front garden with a patio and seating area.
The Lodge welcomes dogs and encourages country and coastal walking come rain or shine!
Having once had the very important job of housing Grandma Gibbins' chickens and providing the family and much of the village with eggs, it was also used as a dropping off point for paper and rags collected by the girl guides during WW2. In the early 1980's The Lodge was converted into holiday accommodation and has been welcoming families ever since.
