About D BROOKES

We have made our home here in North Devon since 1993 when we started converting the range of barns which we now call Flitton Oak Barns. We had been visiting North Devon for summer holidays with our children since the late 1970s and fell in love with the area. The barn conversions (4 properties in all) took just over 10 years to complete. We live on site and are consequently available to guests should problems arise or information is required.

D BROOKES purchased this barn in 1993

Why D BROOKES chose North Devon

The first time we saw the barns it was pouring with rain, the barns were almost derelict, but we loved the stone work and the view across the valley. The location is rural but within easy reach of all amenities

What makes this barn unique

Visitors can enjoy the peaceful area surrounded by green fields. Within the Hayloft the rooms are spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Stream Cottage although much smaller is as comfortable and well equipped.

Very comfortable and well equipped, the perfect base from which to explore Exmoor.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4-8th April 2017 staying in the Hayloft, and it was perfect for our family group of 11, with ages ranging from 75 - 6 yrs. It was large enough for us all to have our own space when required, but with shared spaces roomy enough to fit us all in. The kitchen is very well equipped, the large dining room meant that we could eat our evening meals there in comfort, and the sitting room had great sofas which meant most of us dropped off for a snooze most evenings after a day exploring Exmoor! The bedrooms are all of a good size with very comfortable beds and lovely fresh bedding, and the whole property was spotlessly clean. The only negative was with the hot water being dangerously hot, especially for young children washing their hands. We did try to turn the temperature down, but to no avail so possibly that could be checked? The views from the Hayloft are spectacular and the gardens beautiful. All in all, it was absolutely what we wanted to come home to after a busy day on the moors, the beaches, riding, fishing and playing tourist. Thank you Diane, the scones, jam and clotted cream were delicious and a lovely welcome, and thank you too for making your property so comfortable. We would love to come again. Tricia & Colin and family.
