Welcome to The byre, Truckham Farm. We are situated just outside Exmoor National Park, 1 mile off the A399.
The nearest train station is 12.5 miles away in Barnstaple. Taxis are available from Combe Martin 2.5 miles away. There are small beaches at Combe Martin and Ilfracombe with the long, sandy beach of Woolacombe just 12 miles away.
Shopping can be delivered from Tesco or Sainsburys in Barnstaple or from our local farm shop 1 mile away.
The Byre is our only holiday property offering you privacy and peace.
The farm is situated on the side of a valley and The byre does not have any special adaptations for people with disabilities. Please phone me if you have any queries about accessibility.
our drive is 1/2 mile long and meanders through hay meadows. It is part concrete and part unmade and suitable for cars but not low sports cars.
Parking for 2 cars is just outside The Byre with a gently sloping, gravel path to the property. The downstairs is all one level and slate floored. There are 3 slate steps down from french doors to a gravelled patio area, a lawn and shrubs.
The oven in the kitchen is electric with a 4 ring induction hob and a microwave.
Water is from our own spring, filtered and tested by the council as safe to drink.
12 carpeted steps take you upstairs to 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The twin room has two 3 foot beds and the double a 4'6'' pocket sprung, memory foam bed.
2 smoke alarms are in the property- please do not remove the batteries. A fire blanket and extinguisher are attached to the wall in the kitchen and another extinguisher is in the landing cupboard upstairs. A torch and candles are provided for emergency use.
The barbeque is a traditional charcoal one and charcoal is available from the farm shop.
Being a farm there are hazards and open water so children should be supervised at all times.
Mobile phone reception is patchy in the cottage but fine just outside.
No smoking and no pets.
