This beautifully converted barn boasts a stunning open-plan interior, peaceful decked terrace with breath-taking views and an enviable location just four miles from popular Sidmouth.

Escape to an utterly private location for an unforgettable stay at Sweetcombe Barn, a property with dramatic features and breathtaking views. 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.

 

Renowned for its striking beauty, wildlife and rich history, East Devon is full of hidden wonders to discover. With oodles of footpaths on your doorstep, pack a picnic for a day exploring the wonders of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Seek out a cream tea within the charming village of Beer 7 miles away, spot kingfishers along the river by Otterton Mill 10.5 miles away, or change pace with a trip to Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary 5.5 miles away – the residents love a good scratch!

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

Our rating for location is specific to us, it was too far out in the middle of no where, but we appreciate others would absolutely love this. The downstairs is very spacious, as is the bathroom. The owners were very warm and welcoming on arrival and were dog friendly. Owners were generous with towels, toilet rolls etc. The outside countryside/view Read moreand garden were lovely. If updated it could be an amazing place. Hide
