Higher Bumsley Barn

2-Bedroom Exmoor Holiday Cottage in Parracombe

A charming barn conversion offering gorgeous views of the Heddon Valley from just outside the rural settlement of Parracombe, Devon, Higher Bumsley Barn makes the perfect rural retreat on Exmoor in the heart of this picturesque National Park.

This small farm cottage sits on a property that dates from 1862 and boasts first-floor accommodation just a short distance from the owner’s home. It sits on 50 acres of traditional hill farm that is now an Environmental/Conservation Farm with a small herd of Exmoor ponies, Hebridean sheep, and some of Britain’s rarest butterflies, the High Brown Fritillary.

Traverse a rustic bridge, travel a long lane to reach Higher Bumsley Barn, and enter a spacious open-plan living space with a vaulted ceiling, well-equipped kitchen, and dining area. Sink into the comfy sofa beside the wood-burning stove, or throw open the large glass doors onto the decked balcony to enjoy stunning views over the River Heddon whilst sipping a glass of wine or enjoying your afternoon tea.

This countryside cottage features two bedrooms, a double and a single, excellently appointed with plenty of storage and serviced by a spacious shower room.

Stroll down to the local village pub in Parracombe for a mid-afternoon tea, or take the short drive to the seafront town of Lynton. The surrounding Exmoor countryside features excellent woodland walking trails, with a footpath running past Higher Bumsley Barn’s front door. Enjoy a day trip to Exmoor Zoo or beachcombing at Combe Martin, Ilfracombe, or Lynmouth.
