Property code: 59440

This property nestles in the grounds of the owners’ working equestrian centre in a delightful rural setting punctuated by country lanes and has been lovingly furnished to provide a luxurious retreat.

Sitting just 16 miles west of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), this idyllic cottage is in a prime location for exploring some of Devon's hidden gems. As well as backing on to the unspoilt beauty of Blackdown, this property lies between Devon's north and south shorelines so the whole family can discover both coast and countryside. And with your own private hot tub to enjoy, it's perfect for an extra special getaway.

Step inside and discover a reverse-level interior bursting with homely touches. From the original artwork on the wall to the exposed wooden beams, this converted barn certainly stays true to its rural heritage. Kick off your boots in the bright and airy lobby before climbing the feature oak staircase to the fabulous open-plan kitchen and living area. With a cosy woodburner-effect gas fireplace, it's perfect for chillier evenings. Or on warmer days, throw open the gorgeous French doors and head out onto the patio. Fire up the BBQ, soak up some sun or hop in the hot tub. However you spend your hours, you'll never be short of spectacular views.

For a family-friendly day out, drive to the nearby town of Tiverton (4 miles) and hire out a barge to see the canal in style. Or if you prefer to keep your feet on solid ground, try the tree-lined walk through Wellington Monument (20 miles). But every visitor should make time to explore Devon's world-famous Jurassic Coast. The seaside town of Seaton is a particular highlight. While there, be sure to take the Seaton Tramway through the stunning Axe Valley.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A beautiful house, one of the best we have stayed in. It was very clean and had everything you needed. It is situated on Farm Land so you have to go down a very narrow road, about 4 or 5 miles to get to the property, but it is worth it when you get there as it is such a lovely place. Also a fantastic pub near by
