Siskins Nook

Siskins Nook sleeps 4 people in 2 bedrooms; on the ground floor is an ample open plan living space, outside is a private garden with outdoor furniture and a barbecue (Apr-Oct).

Sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms     

Don’t be surprised if you get a faint scent of apples on the air when you’re staying at Siskins Nook; in days gone by this is where they bought the fruit in from the local orchards and used it to make farmhouse cider; many a happy hour was spent sitting on the rustic benches here, making sure the brew had turned out right.

But of course, that was yonks ago; since then it’s been given a new lease of life and offers very restful holiday accommodation for 4 people in two bedrooms, so it’s perfect for two couples as a good base for a walking holiday, or for a family looking to have a relaxing stay in the Devon countryside.

You’ll see how the pastoral charm has been retained; some of the thick stone walls are left bare, others are painted white; centuries old timbers have been left as they were, and all the quirky window openings are still there. It all blends seamlessly with the top-notch modern furnishings, all there for your convenience.

On the ground floor there’s an ample open plan living space; stairs straight ahead, kitchen to the right, living room to the left. The Shaker style kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice box, dishwasher, microwave, and washer/dryer. When the weather’s good open the top of the stable door to the garden and let the fresh air drift in around you whilst you sit at the table enjoying your breakfast. In the chillier months, get back from a walk around the fields and snuggle up on the sofas in front of the wood-burner; get yourselves settled with a nice hot drink, maybe some toasted teacakes, and find something to watch on TV, or hunker down for a movie night.

A contemporary glass and wood staircase takes you to the landing where off to the left is Bedroom 1, with a kingsize pine bed, and built in wardrobes. To the right is Bedroom 2 which can be a twin or a superking room and can also accommodate a cot.

In the middle, the shared bathroom is finished to a high standard and has a P bath with an overhead shower.

At the back of Siskins Nook there’s a private garden that’s mostly laid to lawn, and don’t forget, you also have use of the huge shared grounds, games room and play equipment.

"***** Wonderful property for a rural holiday with a range of sites and activities within a short drive. Accommodation is of a high standard, lovely welcome pack and our children loved playing on the equipment and using the games room facilities. ***** Lovely holiday, toddler loved the playground. Impressed with the amount of toys and items provided for baby and toddler (highchair, bed guard etc). ***** We were upgraded as a kind surprise to Pipits Retreat which was incredible. The proprietors invited us to look at Siskins Nook and it is just as spectacular. Comfortable, beautiful, ever single detail is of a high specification. Wonderful setting on the farm and so much for the little ones to do. ***** We've had a lovely week at Stonehayes Farm, the accommodation is beautiful with everything you could possibly want/need for your break. ***** A fantastic place to spend our holiday, lovely owners. ***** We had a brilliant time and would definitely return. The property itself was furnished to an excellent standard and could not fault it in any way. ***** Excellent choice for families and easy to get everywhere. Beautiful location! ***** This is an outstanding destination for families. Very high quality accommodation, fittings and hospitality. Could not have asked for anything better. ***** Fantastic house Lots of space and great facilities, lots of lovely little thoughtful touches added to make your stay even easier. Hosts are delightful.
