Higher Bumsley Barn

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 Exmoor retreat in the heart of the 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 and travel a long lane to reach Higher Bumsley Barn and enter upon a spacious open-plan living space with vaulted ceiling, well-equipped kitchen, and dining area. Sink into the comfy sofa beside the wood-burning stove, or you can 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, both 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. Exmoor features plenty of wonderful woodland walking trails, with a public footpath running right past Higher Bumsley Barn’s front door. Enjoy a day trip to Exmoor Zoo or partake in a day of beachcombing at Combe Martin, Ilfracombe, or Lynmouth.
