Little Haddon Barn is a cosy, quirky and inviting family holiday home converted from an early 19th century farm building about twenty years ago. It has thick stone walls and pitchpine floors, robust and easy to keep clean. It has three bedrooms and can sleep ten.
The Barn is an ideal centre for a walking holiday, retreat or family reunion.
Approached along a private ¼ mile track, the Barn lies on the southern flank of Haddon Hill in remote West Somerset. It is in roughly two acres of grounds, about half of which is woodland.
The Barn is surrounded by farmland and is a quiet, very private and peaceful place where you can get away from the hustle of town or city life. Children also love the woods and the stream. There is a tree house in a great oak tree, and the pond. A large badger's set is nearby and at night we are visited by bats and tawny owls.
In front of the house is a large grassy area with a place for fires and seats. Here is space for tents and then a gate leads to the pond and woods. The nearest house is about ¼ of a mile away. A hut in the woods is occasionally used by the owner when the main house is let, but this should have no impact on the privacy of the Barn. The Hut is not included in any lettings.
Six miles to the West is Dulverton, and beyond, the wilderness of Exmoor. A mile or two to the North is Wimbleball Lake with its sailing and other water sports. Ten miles beyond is the ancient port of Watchet where you can hunt for fossils and explore rock pools on the beach, go deep sea fishing or explore the little shops and pubs.
The nearest pub to the Barn is a mile and a half over the hill (turn left out of the gate).
