Beer barn description

Not your usual holiday cottage but a contemporary conversion of a farm building, on our farm at the end of a country lane. With first floor open-plan living area, brightly decorated with oak-flooring. Contemporary furniture creates a seating area around the wood-burner and TV. The dining area (seating 6) has full-height windows with views over the fields. There is a modern kitchen with a larder-fridge, electric hob, oven, microwave and dishwasher. The property has three bedrooms, all with views onto fields - two double bedrooms, one with doors to the terrace, the other with en-suite bathroom. Both bathrooms tiled as ‘wet-rooms’ with showers, handbasin, and WC . All linen is provided, table linen and tea towels. The bedlinen is 100% cotton,‘Devon wool’ duvets and pillows. Ecological dishwasher tablets and washing liquid is provided. There is a utility/boot room with washing machine and drying facilities. Logs and barbecue provided; electricity and heating is included in the rental.


Footpaths surround our working mixed farm, where we keep Black Welsh Mountain Sheep, Red Devon Cattle and traditional breeds of pigs and chickens. We manage the land under a Higher Level Stewardship scheme, which ensures that the orchids and other wild flowers are preserved and the birds and wildlife flourish. We have our own meat available in season and eggs most days. We can recommend award-winning restaurants and pubs that are worth a journey, great farm shops and markets for superb local produce, and the usual supermarkets. We can arrange quality catering and box delivery on request. Bike hire can be arranged from Colyton and horse riding in the village. Tennis courts are located in Seaton & Sidmouth and there are excellent golf facilities at Honiton, Woodbury, Budleigh Salterton and Exeter.

Rural retreat near the coast: We are located at the end of a small country lane in gently undulating countryside. This part of rural East Devon is surprisingly near the coast; the fishing village of Beer and the unspoilt Branscombe beach, but also not far from the Cathedral City of Exeter and Dartmoor. Great for day-trips to all the beaches of Devon including surfing to Saunton & Croyde. Ideally located for exploring Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Cornwall and many historic National Trust houses and gardens are within easy reach.
