Set in velvety hills dotted with sheep and criss-crossed by hedges, this 50-acre farm is in proper ‘get away from it all’ countryside. Friendly owners Zoe and Jim have transformed the two-storey Hay Barn and one-storey Apple Press into a pair of welcoming, timber-clad retreats. Inside, Scandi-style colourful fabrics and tiles, modern furniture and a gratifying lack of clutter are a breath of fresh air. Textiles designer Zoe’s cushions are scattered throughout and her artwork hangs on the whitewashed walls (buy and take it home if you like it). Cooking’s a breeze in simple yet well equipped kitchens; there’s bread, milk, eggs from the farm and garden produce to start you off, but if you’re puffed out, home-cooked meals can be delivered to order. Things couldn’t be more family friendly, with cots, high chairs and toys all available on request, and a table big enough for joint meals in the Hay Barn. Bright bedrooms have a modern feel and pretty views. Outside, fire pits and barbecues mean summer evenings lounging on the terrace will be inevitable. Pop in to the 13th-century farmhouse if you need help or advice – or just want to say hello to the pigs, hens and ducks, of course!
