    “The cottage wasn't particularly clean, lots of cobwebs and flies, windows smeared with dog paw marks, not from our cocker spaniel.”

    The downstairs bathroom smells of damp, insufficient heating in winter. The water due to heavy rain ran coffee coloured which isn't pleasant for brushing teeth and washing in/washing up we certainly wouldn't have had a bath in it. The oven programmer went wring frequently and we couldn't work out how to use the grille, despite the leaflet saying turn to the right. Bedrooms very spartan with no wardrobes. On a positive note the cottage is well equipped but night storage heating wasn't adequate ...

The oven programmer went wring frequently and we couldn't work out how to use the grille, despite the leaflet saying turn to the right. Bedrooms very spartan with no wardrobes. On a positive note the cottage is well equipped but night storage heating wasn't adequate on the first few days when it was cold.

The property

On the edge of the tranquil hamlet of Dunkeswell Abbey, in a quiet country lane is Abbey Cross Barn.

This former barn has been converted to an interesting, rustic-looking, wood-clad cottage.

You enter through a little glass-panelled lobby to a pine-floored, L-shaped sitting room with dining area and French windows to the terrace and garden.

There’s also a well-equipped modern kitchen.

Stairs lead to the first floor and a small landing, off which are two bedrooms under the eaves, both overlooking the garden – a double and a twin.

Outside is good-sized garden with a table, chairs and barbecue overlooking the owner’s apple orchard and vegetable garden.

If you're looking to explore this lovely part of Devon, then you're in a good spot.

Nearby is the market town Honiton, famed for its lace making history, with lots of shops and a good leisure centre.

For fun days at the seaside the regency towns Sidmouth, Seaton and Beer are all within a short drive as is the Jurassic Coast for fossil hunting and iconic Lyme Regis.

Abbey Cross Barn is a beautiful, peaceful place in which to relax at the end of a day's exploring.
