Plovers' Barrow is a charming thatched cottage 2 miles outside the Devon village of Winkleigh.
Set in its own large garden, the cottage is a step back to a more peaceful and slower-paced time. Its two big bedrooms sleep 4-5 in a double and twin room (with room for the fold out single bed if needed). It's secluded, quaint and comfortable and hasn't lost any of its old-world charm to modernisation. That does mean there's no TV - but you can curl up in front of the woodburner with a glass of wine or a book.
And there's no broadband to tie you to the office either. But if you simply must stay in touch you can always use the WiFi at award-winning Wheatland Farm just 200m away.
In fact, Wheatland Farm is managing Plovers' Barrow cottage, and that also gives you access to all their usual facilities, including fishing pond, scones on arrival, wood for the wood burner in the cottage (first basket free), bikes to borrow, mown badminton court, an order ahead service from the nearby farm shop, and 21 glorious acres managed exclusively for wildlife and your relaxation. There's even a nationally-recognised Site of Special Scientific Interest nature reserve where Wheatland Farm's owners, Ian and Maggie, will be delighted to take you on a free guided walk.
This beautiful Devon thatched cottage is accommodation that helps support wildlife and the natural environment. You'll find energy saving measures, garden management for wildlife, and excellent recycling facilities. Plovers' Barrow Cottage is a perfect and delightfully private Devon get away.
