The Hay Loft Self-Catering

Holiday home
The Hay Loft is a big roomy house beside the owner's? house on a smallholding in countryside near the Devon village of Kentisbeare. The house can sleep twelve people in six en suite bedrooms over the two floors, one suitable for wheelchair users. On the first floor is a gallery/sitting room and on the ground floor is an open plan living space with seating area with wood burning stove, dining area and kitchen. Outside are five acres to wander, a wildlife pond and an enclosed garden with lawn and barbecue. Just over a mile from the village pub, The Hay Loft is a splendid base for big groups of family or friends to enjoy a break in Devon.

The pretty village of Uffculme is located in the lush green countryside to the east of Exeter, this small rural community provides a welcome change from the demands of modern living. Almost midway between Dartmoor and Exmoor, and just a 40-minute drive to Exmouth and the beautiful South Devon coast, it is a perfect base for touring the area's many attractions.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Self-Catering Reviews

April 2019
An absolute gem of a property for a large family party celebrating a birthday, loads of room for all and every accessory you could think of to make the catering so much easier. The owners had even left a gorgeous chocolate cake to welcome us decorated in the beautiful edible flowers they grow just beyond the garden. Despite the property being adjacent to the owners home we never felt under any scrutiny (even at the end of the week when we brought out the several glass recycling boxes we'd filled!!). Stuart and Jan were seen quite regularly and couldn't have been more helpful with titbits of local knowledge and answers to probably quite dumb questions from their guests. The bedrooms are fantastic and the bedding is just so comfortable we did struggle on a couple of occasions to rouse some of the younger members of the party (21 and over!!), not that they need much of an excuse. All en-suite with a great mix of baths and showers and as an absolute added bonus, bath robes were provided. The main living area provided a great central hub and meant that the youngsters couldn't avoid "helping" with food prep. The huge dining table was absolutely perfect for a huge Sunday roast and also to play games around in the evening, the wine racks located within arms reach making it so much better. We were absolutely blessed with the weather for the time of year we visited and the views at sunset were simply breath taking, we even managed to have a barbecue one evening which helped feel like we'd used all areas of the property. Overall a fantastic break away, some excellent locations for day trips out not too far away at all, all really brought together by the property and the owners, thank you.

The Hayloft suited our needs perfectly.. Our party ranged from 84 - 5 years & 2 dogs .We were able to meet up together with space & comfort in a beautiful setting . Although the owners , jan & Stuart live adjacent to the property they were not intrusive & allowed us to feel relaxed at all times. Moreover, any communication we had with them was helpful & reflected their keenness to make our stay work well.The cake on arrival set the scene for a quality accommodation with attention to detail that was most appreciated. Many thanks for your great hospitality ; would certainly recommend !

Absolutely fantastic accommodation, large group of adults from 21 to 80 and were never under each others feet.. Had everything we needed to prepare large family meals and the owners couldn't have been more helpful with any questions or queries we had. Plenty to do and see in the local area or if you just wanted a chilled out day plenty to do on site and just a twenty five minute walk to the nearest pub. Will definitely book this property again when next in the area.

A beautiful house, very well equipped and very pleasant and helpful owners.. Delightful area and Kentisbeare has two pubs offering good food and a very interesting church. Good starting point for trips out and we would highly recommend it.

Cottage was beautiful, I expected it to be so and it was everything and more than I was expecting.. Stuart was very accommodating, offering to keep an eye on the dogs if we wanted to leave them for a few hours and also asked us to call or see him if we wanted to know anything about where to go etc. We weren't the quietest group; celebrating a 30th birthday and an engagement all in one, but I never once felt that this affected Stuart and Jan who said hi every time we saw them. I thought we would make more use of the games room which is brilliant and had darts, books a ping pong table and also stuff for the kids (nit that we had any with us, but plastic kitchen play, skittles and probably more) but the house was so well suited for a social group, even though there were 12 of us, that we never did. I planned a skydive when I went as there is an airfield in dunkeswell 5 miles away so I would advise anybody to check that out! The only thing I think I would suggest is perhaps a sign for the hay loft at the guests entrance as I initially drove past maddocks farm as I was looking for the hay loft and then drove into maddocks farm having missed it, but the hay loft is immediately before maddocks farm. extremely minor point! I would love to book this place again!

This was a magnificent cottage perfect for our wheelchair bound son.. Well equipped, very comfortable and well placed for visiting the Devon coast. The owners Jan and Stuart were very welcoming and we loved the plate of home baked biscuits on our arrival. Thank you so much.

Fabulous converted barn with 6 double rooms, all en suite and very comfortable. Excellently well equipped kitchen, with lots of extras (plates, cutlery, serving dishes etc) Welcome scones, jam and cream with tea, coffee, milk etc were a lovely touch and well appreciated on our arrival. Enclosed garden great for our two dogs. Extra wood available for the burner, though the place was really warm and cosy. We stayed with a large group of friends and had more local friends over for dinner and there was lots of room. Wifi worked well. Fully recommend and we would stay again. Thanks
