Studded into the hillside 4 miles from the bustling seaside town of Sidmouth, alternate between calming solitude and the excitement of exploring East Devon. Lose yourself to the spectacular Jurassic Coast, dainty villages and scenic walks. On your return, step out onto the elevated decked terrace ready for a BBQ under the stars, before curling up indoors in front of the wood burner.


Attractive and modest outside, you’ll be stunned by the open-plan interior, exposed stonework and high vaulted ceilings of this converted barn. Contemporary yet homely, the downstairs space is warm and inviting with a large kitchen, lounge, and a dining area where you can feast like a king at the long dining table. Accessed by a steep staircase, the mezzanine bedroom overlooking the lounge is furnished with a king-size bed and two singles – take care as the beautiful sloped ceiling and character beams mean reduced head height. Outside, the terrace is just for adults, but children and dogs can play to their heart’s content in the enclosed garden below.

With oodles of footpaths on your doorstep, pack a picnic for a day exploring the wonders of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Very well placed for sightseeing by car and comfortable, homely barn conversion. The steps to and from the mezzanine bedroom area and to/from the garden may be a problem for some.

Lovely location but maybe a bit remote if dining out. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful

Lovely, cosy cottage with beautiful views in a tranquil location. Owners are very welcoming and checking that we always had enough logs for the fire. Our dogs enjoyed the holiday and particularly the enclosed garden and exploring the nearby forest. Beautiful part of the country.

Lovely barn conversion in a lovely rural location in the South Devon countryside. Great for dogs given the woodland walks on the cottage doorstep. Cottage is open plan and is well equipped and very clean. The wood stove is excellent and unlike some other cottages theres loads of wood available. Owners live in house across the courtyard and are veryRead more friendly. All in all a great place and highly recommended. Hide
