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.

Lovely cottage. We were a party of 4 so a bedroom and bathroom each was luxury. Best resourced kitchen we have ever stayed in. Very clean and comfy. Beautiful views and lovely walks all around. Great local eateries and hosts were very good at keeping in touch and responding to emails. Definitely recommend and will be returning in the future.
