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 from 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 Coast. An ideal location to walk the Jurassic Coastline, taking in Beer, Sidmouth and Seaton. There are plenty of activities all within easy reach, including cycling, horse riding, birdwatching and many National Trust 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.

Fantastic, quirky little cottage. So well thought out with everything you need for the perfect holiday. Made to feel very welcome. Ideally located for exploring the local area with lovely walks along the river on your doorstep. Would highly recommend

Thoroughly enjoyed my short break at the workshop it was a lovely place to stay, very comfortable and peaceful. It was great to be able to walk from the cottage to the River Otter which was a beautiful stretch of river. Will definitely return.
