Originally producing up to 20,000 gallons of cider a year up until the 1930’s. The Cider Barn was converted from a derelict state in late 2008 becoming a very popular and beautifully finished holiday property.
An idyllic Devon holiday house to stay in; access is via a long winding uphill drive passing the original cider apple orchard. The house and garden overlook the scenic Ashcombe Valley and you can see all the way to the south Devon coast which is just visible through the hills. The house benefits from total privacy and is much in demand from groups and extended families who want to holiday together in great surroundings.
The Cider Barn sleeps up to 16 people in 8 rooms, 6 with their own en-suite bathrooms. The accommodation is split between ground and first floors which, together with a large dining room, a spacious double lounge with a wood burner, well equipped modern kitchen and utility / boot room makes the Cider Barn the perfect place to stay in summer or winter. Guests have exclusive use of The Cider Barn’s heated outdoor plunge pool (from 1 April to 1 November) as well as access to the main indoor swimming pool at Woodhouse Farm all year round.
The Cider Barn has ample private parking allowing guests to come and go as they please or just stay and enjoy a relaxing time with the view and silence.
The kitchen is designed to cater for big groups with a large fridge freezer, two electric ovens and hobs. The custom-made oak dining room table can easily seat 16 people. There is a gas-fired Webber barbecue for cooking up a gourmet outdoor feast on the patio.
Ashcombe’s new superfast broadband means there is now 30mb/s WiFi throughout the property.
Cider production from the orchard below the house restarted in 2012 and is going from strength to strength winning awards and fans along the way: Ashcombe Estate Orchards Cider
