Located on the owner’s smallholding, close to Axminster in a perfect location for exploring the Jurassic Coast of East Devon and further afield.

Tucked in a quiet corner of the owner’s smallholding, more than 220 yards from the road with lovely views over the meadow and beyond, Coaxdon Barn offers a warm welcome to its guests. With its wood burner taking pride of place in the living room, this detached barn conversion is ideal for either couples or small groups and families wanting to visit this charming area of Devon whatever the time of year. Coaxdon Barn has useful outside areas so you can enjoy a morning coffee, or if the weather allows, a barbecue and al fresco dining. There are grassed areas for guests to use during their stay. The owners keep their own bees, sheep and hens, and the farm is also the home of Damson Tree Pottery. They are more than happy to show and talk to guests about their interests, and hands-on pottery sessions are available (please contact the owners in advance to book). Coaxdon Barn lies close to Axminster, an unspoilt Devon market town situated on the River Axe. Surrounded by stunning countryside and filled with charm and character this attractive town lies in the beautiful Axe Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasting quaint villages and unspoilt countryside. Celebrity chef and TV presenter Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall purchased an old inn that once provided the ballroom of the town, and converted it into his very first River Cottage Canteen and Deli (an organic produce shop/market and canteen). He also has his River Cottage HQ nearby offering a variety of cookery courses and dining experiences. Whether you are planning your summer holidays in Axminster or are looking for somewhere to slip away in the depths of winter for a romantic break, Axminster and the surrounding area have something to offer you, whatever the weather and whoever you are with. For the craftsperson, Axminster Tools offer a variety of short courses. Coaxdon Barn is just 7 miles from the World Heritage Jurassic coast, and ideally located to explore the South West Coast Path, The Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the popular resorts of Lyme Regis, Branscombe, Sidmouth, Beer, Seaton and the fossil beach at Charmouth. There are many local visitor attractions including Forde Abbey, Beer Caves, Burrow Farm Gardens, sea fishing boat trips at Lyme Regis, the Seaton Tramway and the Axe Valley Wildlife Park which is a great family outing, where you can see a variety of birds and mammals. Child-friendly beach 7 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    In the Coaxdon Barn in Axminster you are in the middle of nature with your family. Realy quit, spacious and a lovely stone house. Modern and clean inside with all the luxury you need. The sympathatic owners live in the farmhouse next door and are just as fond of nature as we are ourselves. They have little sheep running around the property. The kids can do a nice workout on the trampoline. At nightfall there is mostly a white Barn Owl hunting for mice in the surrounding grassland. Spectacular to see. The location is perfect for our trips: fossil hunting at the beach, Dartmoor National Park en Exmoor National Park are within good reach. It was great ...and maybe we'll get back next year.
