We can’t wait to welcome you to our latest home from home, Housedon Haugh. This six bedroom farmhouse has been reclaimed in much of its original stone, designed and developed with a statement larch clad extension, to become the best possible version of a holiday home that we can provide. The Wild Plum standard just got raised even higher!

It was important to us to add a real show stopper to our portfolio, somewhere that can be the backdrop to your extra-special precious memories, family holidays, weddings, milestone birthdays, hen weekends or just a place for peaceful retreat – Housedon Haugh will step up to the mark. Especially as we know how important first get togethers will be when restrictions are finally lifted.

Set in a tranquil dip within the Bowmont valley, a perfect hideaway with stunning views, the freshest of air and best of all – no passing traffic – except perhaps a friendly cow or sheep!

Inside, the classic Wild Plum colour palette has been applied, with brushstrokes of rich tones; Earthy reds and pinks, Prussian blues and malachite merge with jewel-like Kate Forman fabrics, set against relaxed, easy neutral tones with the polished wood of antique furniture bringing an air of downplayed elegance and warmth to your stay – which we know you have come to love at Wild Plum Escapes.

Housedon Haugh is finished to an impeccably high standard, with touches of luxury throughout including underfloor heating across the entire ground floor, sumptuous bedrooms and pristine bathrooms. A large country style kitchen featuring a Rangemaster six burner hob and Fisher & Paykel refrigeration offers a great cooking space for those hearty stews and crumbles needed after a day walking in the hills or fishing our rivers.

Outdoors, a large patio area has multiple uses for outdoor dining, relaxation and taking in the panoramic views across the Bowmont valley with miles and miles of countryside to explore on foot or two wheels. A perfect country retreat with so much to offer large parties.
