  • "Beautifully appointed and idyllically located, we had a wonderful short family break despite disappointing weather."

    The spacious and luxurious summer house with it's top of the range barbeque and overhead heating were the icing on the cake, and the very large and clean hot tub added a touch of glamour. We were even provided with a chilled bottle of pink prosecco, fresh locally made scones, and many other small but thoughtful necessitates (such as tea & coffee, both standard and decaffeinated). Chulmleigh is delightfully pretty and feels very remote despite not being far from the M5. Perfect for a short family break, although we could happily have stayed much longer.

    We were looking for somewhere we could holiday together as a family of adults with various additional needs, with space for different ways to spend our time. This property provided plenty of options and it was one of the most relaxing breaks we have had in recent years.

    Val and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay Kerrie. Thank you for your positive and touching feedback. Kindest regards to you and your family. P&V. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful time at Rodgemonts Barn."

    Paul and Val were wonderful hosts, very informative about the local area, and they went above and beyond to make our stay so relaxing and enjoyable. The Barn is just fantastic, and all living accommodation is so comfortable and well equipped. They have thought of everything you could need or want. The bbq area was also brilliant, and my husband, who is a keen cook thoroughly enjoyed using the outdoor cooking facilities. We had lots of memorable family meals out there during the week. This was our first family holiday with 2 small babies, and Paul and Val were really attentive in making sure we had what we needed for them. We celebrated my mums 60th birthday there and Val even helped us with a few decorations for the occasion and a birthday card! Thank you so much, Paul and Val for making our holiday at your barn such an enjoyable, relaxing time.

    Thank you Bernadette for your lovely feedback and kind words. It was delightful to meet all your family and the beautiful new additions. We are so happy you all enjoyed your stay and grateful for you choosing Rodgemonts for your holiday and your Mum's birthday. Wishing you all many, many happy holidays in the future and hope to see you again. Kindest wishes. V&P. Property Owner

    The property was beautiful, very well equipped (in fact they'd thought of everything you could possibly need) super clean, spacious and all the decor was lovely too. The barn is set in very well looked after peaceful surroundings - in fact we saw deer and pheasant in the gardens. The relaxing hot-tub and cabana/bbq area was a real bonus. 100% recommendation - we will definitely stay again.

    Dear Rhona. Thank you so much for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to host you all. You also left the place in an impeccable way and this really helped Val & I in every way. You are always welcome here and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. Kindest wishes to you all. V&P. Property Owner

    The photos look lovely on the Sykes website but when we arrived it was even better than we expected. Paul & Val were so welcoming and went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic.

The property

Positioned amidst the rolling Devonshire countryside you will find this spectacular thatched barn conversion, Rodgemonts Barn.

Offering eight guests a fantastic base for a rural retreat on the outskirts of the village of Chulmleigh, Rodgemonts Barn is as exquisite inside as it is out, with wonderful, welcome features like a six-seater hot tub and extensive lawns.

The property boasts a reverse-level layout, with immaculately presented double bedrooms lying on the ground floor, each complete with an en-suite shower room.

A further two bedrooms are tucked above the separate garage across the lawn, both enjoying their own access, one with a spiral staircase, featuring double beds and boasting en-suite wet rooms.

Back in the barn, the stairs bring you up to the first-floor open-plan living space, a lofty, stylish room where you'll relish relaxing on the quality furnishings, with three beautiful sofas to lounge on before the huge wall-mounted Smart TV.

A long dining table with fabulous plush seating in rich, earthy hues is perfect for coming together over a delicious home-cooked meal, all beneath the high vaulted ceilings with exposed beams adding a rustic feel.

The kitchen is a lovely space with integrated appliances tucked behind muted grey cupboards including a dishwasher, washing machine, double electric oven and fridge/freezer.

Enjoy relaxing out on the decked balcony with outdoor seating and a barbecue for long summer afternoons running into the balmy evenings, or take a dip in the hot tub for a tranquil way to unwind beneath the stars.

The little ones and your four-legged friend are sure to love the beautifully maintained and extensive lawns surrounding the property, with footpaths leading into your own private woodland right on your doorstep, perfect for morning strolls to stretch your legs.

The traditional village of Chulmleigh is close by, showcasing thatched cottages and cobbled lanes, as well as a convenience store and two pubs.

About the location


Winkleigh 6.3 miles; Barnstaple 18 miles; Exeter 25 miles.

Chulmleigh is a delightful village in the heart of Devon, with a real, old-fashioned community spirit. With its narrow cobbled lanes, rows of thatched cottages, courtyards and welcoming inns it is a pleasure to wander here in this relatively unspoilt part of Devon. It is a year-round destination, with summer gardens and winter walks to enjoy. The 180-mile Tarka Trail starts in nearby Eggesford Forest, which is on the banks of the River Taw, and follows a pretty route through woodland, and offers some spectacular moorland views. Chulmleigh is particularly good for birdwatchers, who can spot kingfishers, cormorants, goosanders and dippers along the quiet riverbanks. Fishing is a popular sport in the area, with salmon and sea trout in the rivers and coarse fishing on Catham Lakes and Huntacott Water. Chulmleigh is midway between the national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and within easy reach of the rugged north Devon coast.
