About Louise Baker

Woodpecker Barn is part of a complex of nine converted cottages that were built on a working farm in 2004. The current owners are siblings Louise Baker and James Mathews, who purchased Woodpecker Barn in October 2014, made aware of it's availability from a family friend.

Louise was sports mad as a child and has carried that through her adult years, albeit conceding that motherhood is twice as challenging as any netball or athletics competition. A keen angler, James would spend everyday by the waters edge if circumstances would allow and does so even when they don't.

Louise Baker purchased this barn in 2014

Why Louise Baker chose Teignbridge

Lovers of the outdoor life and restricted by the ever increasing concrete jungle that is the South East of England, they were looking for the perfect country getaway for their family and friends. No doubt you will enjoy your own 'Escape to the Country' as much as they do.

What makes this barn unique

This property is on a complex which provides an indoor swimming pool, games room (pool table, table tennis, table football and other toys) and external children's play area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed here with my husband, 21month old daughter and both sets of our parents and we were extremely satisfied with everything woodpecker barn had to offer. The kitchen is huge and the living room is cosy. The wood burner was great as it was quite cold. Facilities were outstanding and the added extras were much appreciated from kids toys, DVDs, games, travel cot, stair gates. Owners were very quick to respond and friendly. Would absolutely stay again!

Excellent quality lovely complex

  • 5 of 5

Woodpecker Barn is a lovely property. It has everything you need, in excellent decorative order. It was clean, warm and welcoming. The site is equally as well maintained. The pool and playbarn were both great, suitable for all ages. All the equipment/toys are in good order and well maintained. Ideal for wet and dry days. There is also an outside play area with swings , slides and a large grass area for ball games.

Woodpecker Barn has its own private outside space, save and secure. Lovely patio table and chairs are available with lovely views over open countryside.

Very impressed. Lovely property with everything you could need for a great family break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a few nights in early Sept and had a great time. The cottage is so well equipped, we have two toddlers and they had everything we needed. My children really enjoyed the swimming pool (the changing rooms looked brand new), park and play room and that's before we mention all the toys, books and dvds. Everything for the children has been thought of.

The cottage itself is extremely clean, well decorated and all the little extras like washing up liquid, cleaning cloths and even cling firm and kitchen foil make it very easy to settle in. It's bedrooms are well sized and the bathrooms have good showers. Always important, we think. Thanks for a great stay, we would really recommend this property.

Very nice accommodation with everything that you need already thought of. Good value as well, highly recommended a visit here. Be warned though, the roads are not good. My Audi TT got a battering.

Recently spent a week at Woodpecker Barn with 4 generations of our family aged between 3 and 73.

  • 5 of 5

I speak on behalf of all my family when I say this is one of the best accommodations we have ever stayed in. The owners have literally thought of everything. Each and every one of us loved the peace and quiet, fresh air, pool and house itself. We will definitely be returning. The house is situated down narrow country lanes so be prepared to come face to face with a tractor or two on your travels.

If you want peace and quiet, we would recommend this location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Woodpecker Barn, it was perfect for both parents and the children of 5 and 2 years old. The location is suitable for days out, as well as staying on the former farm, with full use of the playground, swimming pool and games room to keep everyone occupied.

The barn itself is very spacious and clean and equipped with everything you would ever need including all the safety equipment for babies and toddlers if required.

If you want a relaxing break with the family, this is the place to go, boil the kettle and enjoy a nice cuppa in the garden whilst listening to the sheep chewing the grass!! Bliss.
