Grade II listed building / Four poster bed

This converted, Grade II listed barn at the end of a row of four, is located on a quiet sheep farm and has far-reaching views across the Axe Valley towards Seaton. It has been awarded 4 stars by Visit Britain, and would be marvellous for two to three families accommodated in four bedrooms with four bathrooms. The heating comes from a wood biomass boiler, and the electricity is via a 50kw solar panel array.

You have freedom to roam 150 acres of green fields and woodland, muck in and help with farm activities such as haymaking or feeding sheep and lambs, or sit out on the enclosed private patio with its water feature and revel in the beautiful scenery or watch the wildlife and farm animals. A children’s play area is available.

Seaton with its mile long beach is 2 miles away with the famous Seaton and District Electric Tramway, golf, fishing, and superb cliff walks. Lyme Regis, with its Cobb, offers good sailing and water-skiing. Visit the Donkey Sanctuary, Broadwindsor Craft Centre, Crealy Adventure Playground at Exeter or Bicton Park Gardens at Budleigh. The rich and rolling farmlands nearby are dotted with ancient market towns and mellow stone villages. The Blackdown Hills where gorse-clad hilltops descend through to secluded wooded valleys. Walkers will delight in reaching the Duke of Wellington’s monument. Shop 1.5 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Beautiful property, some steps to access garden and house. Only slight negative for some people might be that you have to drive to beach and to a local pub if you have older or less able people with you but would definitely recommend.

I have no hesitation in recommending The Stables for your holiday. The open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge worked very well for our party of 8 adults. Likewise the four bedrooms and four bathrooms were excellent. The farm setting is beautiful and the owner was very helpful. I would definitely come again to The Stables and this beautiful part of Devon.
