Welcome to

An original 16th century hay barn lovingly converted
into a luxurious 3 bedroomed holiday cottage.


The Hayloft is an original 16th century hay barn lovingly converted into a luxurious 3 bedroomed holiday cottage.

The property nestled in the rolling Devonshire countryside has a unique style of its own with plenty of light, original feature beams and quirky-shaped old plastered stone walls. In just a few steps you can soak up the birdsong and amazing countryside vistas on its doorstep.

Internally, there is a fully equipped kitchen housing an electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer and dishwasher, encouraging home cooking and an old fashioned farmhouse table with benches and chairs for family dining.

Situated in the spacious living area is a large L-shaped sofa and bean bags where you can relax and watch the TV.

The master bedroom is downstairs and features a Loren Williams, king-size bed tastefully clothed with Scion bed linen and an en-suite shower room.

Upstairs are two further bedrooms, bedroom one with a luxury Loren Williams king-size bed and bedroom two with a luxury Loren Williams double bed, both set amongst the rafters and serviced by a gleaming shower room. For extra convenience there is an additional small sofa bed on the landing.

The Hayloft and The Farm Office are serviced by minimal toiletries which are eco-friendly.

At Thorne Farm Estate we  are very mindful of the environment and encourage our guests to recycle and only use towels and toiletries as required.

The estate is organically farmed and you will notice that we have recently been busy planting lots of trees.

Saunter outside to the enclosed courtyard for a lazy soak in the hot tub or choose to dine alfresco style using the outside dining furniture; there is also a barbecue for those grilled feasts!


There is a wash ‘n’ scrub building outside which houses a communal large washing machine and a commercial sink or hose pipe to wash mud and sand from your walking boots or even your muddy pets!

Guests to Hayloft have access to their entire cottage and courtyard and there is plenty of parking next to the cottages.

Outside there is a fun set of show jumps to keep the children entertained!

The farm estate extends to 250 acres of beautiful Devon countryside. You can stroll amongst ancient woods, wild flowers and grasses but please close all gates, keep your pets on a lead around livestock. A plan of the walks will be provided in the cottage upon your arrival.

If you wish to see the horses both Katherine and Nigel will be delighted to show you. Please message Katherine to book a convenient time to see them.

This is a pet friendly cottage for a single pet. We welcome well behaved pets and enjoy meeting them as much as our two-legged friends. 

In some circumstances we may be able to consider more than one pet. However, we will require a £50 deposit which is fully refundable if the cottage is left clean and tidy.

Expect this and much more with a stay at The Hayloft.
