    “I stayed at Barn Court Cottage with my wife and two children (aged 11 &14) for a 4 night holiday in April.”

    When you stay here you are out in the middle of the beautiful Devon countryside, yet just 5 minutes drive from Tiverton and within easy reach of the coastal areas of both North and South Devon as well as the vibrant city of Exeter. The owners of the cottage live in the house over the courtyard. They are a lovely couple who are very welcoming and were always on hand to help. The Cottage is very clean and the owners had made sure that all the essentials such as tea bags, washing up liquid etc.. were ready for our stay. The location is in a small valley a fair way down a narrow but typical undulating Devon Lane. The outlook from the cottage is stunning with views over the nearby hills which were full of cows and sheep. There were also various birds visiting the immaculate garden area. There is a very good parking area right outside the cottage and a 3-pin socket was available from the outside utility room which I used to charge my plug-in electric car overnight. There are also two Instavolt 50 kWh chargers 5 minutes down the road at the Exe Valley leisure centre. Just before the leisure centre there is a conveniently located Morrisons for your shopping needs. From the cottage there are some great walks direct from the front door which we did. During our stay we also went to Beer (seaside town about 45 minute drive away) and we did a walk recommended in the cottage welcome folder which was Salcombe Hill to Sidmouth circular walk. This was a great walk with stunning scenery but it was quite steep in places. I highly recommend this Cottage for a couple or a family of up to four, although you should note that there are only two bedrooms so the children must share the 2 single beds in one of the rooms. We enjoyed our stay so much and we are already planning to go back to the cottage again as it exceeded our expectations.

The property

This lovely detached cottage is situated on the outskirts of Washfield, in close proximity to Tiverton, approached by a narrow lane with beautiful views just waiting to be uncovered.

Whether you are bringing along the family or travelling with friends, Barn Court Cottage promises guests a relaxing getaway, a retreat wrapped in charm and tradition, to make your holiday that much more memorable.

Enter inside past the lovely gravelled grounds, plants and trees where you will be intrigued by the unique country cottage kitchen, and characterful living room with its electric stove located in the corner.

A scenic view towards the Devon countryside can be appreciated any time of the day.

Upstairs, two bedrooms await, the first is presented as a double, whilst the second hosts a twin set-up, both are tied together with necessary furniture, and overlooked by Velux windows for a light, airy effect.

Lastly, an all-white bathroom accompanies the interior, showcasing an overhead shower and vanity unit which compliments the formation in a contemporary fashion.

Outdoors, there will be plenty of opportunity to sit in the sunshine and relax on the furniture available.

For the more active, discover footpaths, fly fishing in the glorious clear waters of the River Exe and natural wildlife in the area.

Not forgetting several National Trust stately homes and gardens within easy reach, including Knightshayes Court.

Tiverton, a large town just four miles away offers Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life, and is located only ten miles from the rolling wild green hills of Exmoor.

Within an hour are some great beaches of the North and South Devon coast to enjoy for a great day out.

A wonderful cottage in a sort after location.

About the location

TIVERTON

Exmoor National Park 12 miles; Exeter 15 miles; Saunton Sands 28 miles

Tiverton is set on the banks of the Great Western Canal in central mid Devon. A town rich with history and heritage with a thriving town centre hosting a popular farmers market every third Wednesday. Visit Tiverton Castle a royal fortress commissioned in 1106, or enjoy walks along the tow path of the Grand Western Canal, originally built to transport lime and where today you can take a trip on one of the iconic horse drawn barges, a perfect way to discover the beauty and wildlife along the canal. For those who enjoy cycling the the canal provides an easy 8-mile cycle ride between Tiverton and the Somerset border, ideal for all ages. Explore the rolling hills and moorland of Exmoor National Park, just a short distance away and perfect for exploring on two wheels. National Trust Knightshayes is worthy of a visit, particularly the walled garden and has some wonderful walks within the grounds. The north Devon coast is within an hours drive, and for some retail therapy the Cathedral city of Exeter is with a half hour drive.
