Detached barn completed in 2020 - set in a beautiful spot with outstanding countryside views, this holiday home offers a great place for families or friends with lots of fun additions to make your stay as memorable as possible.

Located down quiet country lanes just 3 miles from the edge of Exmoor National Park, this detached barn was completed in 2019 and offers you a secluded retreat where you can escape all the stresses of daily life. Sleeping 12 people over six bedrooms and welcoming two dogs, it’s the perfect accommodation option for a families or group of friends who want to get away from it all and enjoy the rural tranquility of the Devonshire countryside. Sitting on a working farm where you can enjoy clay pigeon shooting and fishing - and with a hot tub to soak in at the end of the day - this property offers the ideal rural retreat.

Step inside this contemporary home and you’ll find a huge open-plan lounge/diner with a snug at one end that features games and a pool table. Cook up a feast for your group in the well-equipped kitchen and serve it up in the spacious dining area in front of the cosy wood burner. Alternatively, step through the large French doors into the garden and strike up the BBQ or the wood fired pizza oven on the patio area. You and your group can dine alfresco before taking a dip in the private hot tub. Or head back indoors to relax in front of a movie or play a game of pool in the lounge area. At the end of the day there are six stylish bedrooms for you to choose from.

And with 1,200 plant species unique to Knightshayes, its garden is said to boast one of the finest and most varied plant collections in the country.

Visit the property’s working water mill and take in views across the Bristol Channel from its splendid gardens.

It has remained largely unchanged for over 150 years. Or enjoy a day out in Brickleigh (15 miles), a picturesque village in the Exe Valley where you’ll find lovely thatched cottages, a railway museum, beautiful gardens and a lot of shops and restaurants housed in the 18th-century Brickleigh Mill.
