The Space

We are offering here a minimum of two nights stay in our brand new fully fitted luxury loft studio for two overlooking fields, totally private with self contained access and parking. The loft and dairy are detached from the main house 10 yards away.
dairybarn_road_view1
We include breakfast not in the traditional way but by providing you with a stocked fridge, home made jams and cakes and a welcome pack all of which will give you plenty of food choices for afternoon tea the day of arrival, breakfast and a pack lunch the day after. We will cater for any food intolerances with prior notice.

Dogs are welcome but not in the loft so we will provide separate access and a key to the ground floor where there will be a cage for your dog if you need one. There will be a travel cot should you have a baby though there are only bedspaces for two which can be as double or twin -let us know which arrangement you would prefer.

We can arrange for secure storage of cycles here and there is a washdown facility for MBK riders.
Horse riders can hire a mount up the road from us and both riders have full direct access to the common via the bridleway over the road from the house.
Walkers on the East Devon Way can access the house by a short diversion off the way.

Birdwatchers have the RSPB reserves close by. In summer the house is surrounded by Nightjars, cuckoos, swallows, woodpeckers etc and in winter there are owls, flocks of fieldfares, many finches and we have wagtails and house sparrows to entertain you all year.

You will be free to come and go as you wish, get up and dress when you want, eat what and when you want, be totally undisturbed for the whole of your stay. But if you need us we are only next door.

We have a wealth of knowledge of Devon and the local area and are always happy to help and being half a Scots household the door is always open.

Guest Access

  • Arrive after 3 pm.
  • Depart by 10 am.
  • Secure private yard for car parking with floodlighting and gates / bike storage available and wash down facility outside for bikes and dogs.
  • Direct access by steps to front door from the yard.
  • Key in the door on arrival.

Interaction with Guests

  • As much or as little as you want.

The Neighbourhood

The East Devon AONB says it all and we are in the heart of it. The area is also known as ‘Raleigh Country’ and Sir Walter lived down the road a way. We are also between two large bird reserves and a triple SSSI so there is an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna.

We are between two rivers The Exe and The Otter where there is great fishing and close to the coast, you can ‘see the sea’ from the top of the valley opposite, so there is great sailing and arguably the UK’s best kitesurfing at Exmouth.

You can walk for miles from the house almost without crossing a road and we are just off the East Devon Way.

  • MBK from here to Exmouth is easy and then onto the Exe Trail and back by bus.
  • Walk to Sidmouth in 3 hours and back by bus.

Other things to note

  • Plenty more to note so feel free to ask.
