This delightful and spacious rural barn nestles in a peaceful spot with enclosed garden and wooded area where you can relax in hammocks. Set on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is a stylish base from which to explore the local area.

Perfect for getaways with little ones in tow, this gorgeous barn sleeps eight over four bedrooms and boasts an enviable location on the edge of the East Devon and Blackdown Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Enjoy retail therapy in Exeter (16 miles), walks in the surrounding countryside and beach days on the Jurassic Coast (11 miles) before relaxing back at the retreat and spending quality time together. Swing in a hammock and admire verdant views or get competitive in the games room before cosying up in the stylish, bright, open-plan living space.

 

High ceilings, large windows and calming hues create a wonderful sanctuary in which to holiday. The heart of the home is the kitchen/lounge/diner where you’ll relish spending time with loved ones and can keep each other company whether you’re busy cooking, sipping drinks and admiring the view, or settling down in front of the Smart TV. The open-plan design means you can keep an eye on young guests and with sliding doors leading to the gorgeous garden, let the outside flow in and bask in the breeze. The charm continues into the magical outdoor space where hammocks invite you to doze off, the patio is perfect for post-dinner tipples and there is a BBQ for al fresco dining. After a delicious dinner, let off some steam in the games rooms where you’ll find table tennis, air hockey and a pool table, or shoot some hoops on the drive before heading to one of four charming bedrooms. The king-size bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room, there are two super-king-size rooms, whilst one room has bunk beds perfect for sleepovers with friends and siblings. There is off-road parking for three cars so you can load the car easily and head out to explore further afield.

For a day by the sea, make the 11-mile journey south to the renowned Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site where beaches, fossils and breathtaking views await. Sidmouth is a great destination for a day out or, slightly further afield, Lyme Regis (19.5 miles) with its aquarium and The Cobb harbour is a wonderful place to head. Stretch your legs with a stroll on the South West Coast Path before settling on the beach and basking in the sea air.

Exceptional cottage with highly respectful owners who helped us to every step of the way and even gave us a lift to the shops and the station. 8 teenage boys and no sense of any misinterpreted assumptions were sensed.

We had a truly wonderful week at Merry Barn. A relaxing but central location for visiting the local coastal villages and some great walks straight from the doorstep. Would definitely recommend.

Merry Barn is probably the best holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in. The house is very well designed with the bedrooms (with very comfy beds) away from the noise of the living space and loads of room for everyone. Outside is stunning and so tranquil without any traffic noise at all and hammocks strung between trees to enjoy the beautiful coRead moreuntryside views from. The attention to detail was noted with flowers on the table and a cream tea provided for us. We could have stayed forever! Hide

A fantastic location so peaceful and private with lots of wildlife to see. The barn was so clean and comfortable. The games room was brilliant it was lovely to spend time as a family having fun and chatting rather than watching tv or on the iPads.

This was the very best cottage we have ever stayed in. It was fantabulous. It should have a five-star rating if it hasnt already got one. We stayed at the end of July, the owners are so friendly and helpful. That was the first thing we noticed. When you walk in you notice the very high quality of the barn.
