Ottery St Mary is only 2 miles, and Sidmouth close by, an ideal walking area with the Jurassic Coastline taking in Beer, Sidmouth and Seaton.

These two 16th-century barn conversions, two of three, are situated in the grounds of the owner’s home, they were once stables of the Mayor of Exeter, then became a workshop and now are two delightful holiday cottages. Both are decorated and furnished uniquely and offer an ideal base for which to explore East Devon. Situated in the picturesque hamlet of Fluxton, nestled at the foot of rolling hills which ascend from the River Otter, located 2 miles from Ottery St Mary and 5 miles from Sidmouth. The area is dominated by lush green hills, wooded valleys and the dramatic Jurassic Coastline. An ideal location to walk the Jurassic Coastline, taking in Beer, Sidmouth and Seaton. There are plenty of activities all within reach, including cycling, horse riding, birdwatching and many NT properties. Exeter’s 2000 year old history is reflected in its heritage attractions, such as the Gothic St Peter’s Cathedral and the Roman city wall. Explore beneath the city’s streets at Exeter’s underground passages, which were originally built to bring fresh water into the city in the medieval times.

    The Workshop is really rather original, with interesting vintage signs adorning the walls. The Aga keeps the place pleasantly warm when the weather is cool. My dog and I stayed there in late autumn. I very much enjoyed the spacious feel upstairs and found the cottage very peaceful. Beautifully clean and well equipped. Marvellous field at the back of the owner's house for a great walk and plenty of exercise for my dog. Delightful as the river walk is, a lot of other dog owners go there too. As my dog is reactive to his own kind, walks have to be found where fewer people and dogs congregate. I would love to return to the Workshop again.

    some interesting features in the property. The aga is very pretty but in summer provides a constant heat source that isn't required. It also takes an age to cook anything on. The fly swot was very useful , as the Windows had to be open constantly. Not much privacy at all with this property.

    This property is ideal if you want to explore the Jurassic coastline, yet secluded enough to be off the beaten track. It has a low ceilings ,particularly in the bedroom but you do get used to it. It is very cosy for two and has a lovely little patio outside with chairs and table if the weather is fine. The Aga cooker keeps it warm but is an unusual feature if you're not used to one and can challenge one's cooking skills. The property was well presented on arrival with fresh flowers, scones and milk etc. in the fridge. The owner was obliging and helpful.
