Fiona and Greg Page-Turner are close by and will be delighted to help you enjoy your stay by getting the most out of the farm and the local area. This delightful new barn conversion, completed in 2011, provides high quality holiday accommodation only a short drive from the beautiful Jurassic Coast. Arranged over three floors the house has been designed to make the most of the available space with a large sitting room on the top floor, an open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area (with cosy wood burner) located on the ground floor and with the three bedrooms situated in between. The bedroom accommodation includes one bedroom that can be made-up as either a double or twin room so that the house can comfortably cater for two sets of couples in double beds as well as for family groups. There are two separate bath/shower rooms as well as a ground floor cloakroom with W.C. The second floor sitting room includes sofa beds that, if required, can extend the maximum occupancy to 8 guests. Outside, opposite the cottage, there is a large orchard garden with a seating area, including garden furniture and a barbeque. The garden area enjoys stunning views across the valley, making it the perfect spot to sit and relax after a day spent exploring the local attractions. This property is a great choice for those seeking a quiet rural location with easy access to the nearby coast. The self-contained barn conversion is quietly situated in the farm courtyard adjoining a large farmhouse where the owners' family offer bed & breakfast accommodation. The farm is located just a couple of miles outside of the bustling East Devon market town of Honiton, with easy access to the stunning Jurassic coast about 15 miles away. Although quietly tucked away from main roads the farm is easy to access by car and perfect for those wishing to explore the local area's many attractions. Walkers and cyclists are also very welcome and the house includes lots of information about footpaths and local routes. There are extensive walks through 150 acres of farmland, including 16 acres of ancient woodlands to explore, and the River Lupp which adjoins the farm. There is an excellent local walk to the Dumpdon Hill Fort, which is a National Trust Iron Age fort. Attached barn conversion on three floors.
