  • "Had a wonderful time at the apple barn, it had everything you needed and felt like a home from home."

    Mrs GamlinNov 2021

  • "A lovely cottage that worked well for 5 adults."

    The only problem was that, like many places in Devon, access was via narrow lanes with few passing places.

    Mrs RelfSep 2021

  • "The check in and check out times are a little tight, would be good for these to now be looked at, also only 1 towel per person, obviously not enough for a weeks stay, although we spoke to the owner and she was happy to provide us with another towel each, but would be good to have a number of towels provided per person for the weeks stay."

    Could not fault the accommodation or setting

    Mrs HaslamSep 2021

  • "Although we understand the pressures of ‘turn around day’, we still felt that 9 am is just too early to expect guests to leave."

    To try to shower, pack, breakfast, strip the bed, clear the kitchen and rubbish (and we clean the bathroom and kitchen as well), and load the car, means you have to be up pre-dawn on what is essentially still a holiday day. Our lovely owner offered to change it to 10 am, which is reasonable, but by that time we had decided to leave the previous afternoon. A real shame. But we loved our stay at Apple Barn. We thought it is reasonable to take 2.5 hours to clean the cottage, and there is still plenty of airing time before next guests arrive, so surely out by 10, and next guests by 4 is more reasonable?

    Mrs AllenSep 2021

  • "Booked the Apple Barn last year but due to lockdown could not go so transferred it to July this year."

    It was a fabulous base for our weeks walking holiday. Lots of room, spotlessly clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Lovely and quiet. We were met on our arrival by the owners who gave us lots of information about the area, recommended places to eat and good walking routes. A great week with a different walk every day. Would definitely go again and would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet base that’s not too far from everything. Axminster about a mile and a half away and lovely Lyme Regis about five miles.

  • "Our family and dog really enjoyed our week at The Apple Barn."

    The owners were really friendly and approachable. The cottage was very comfortable and one of the nicest places we have stayed in. It was a heat wave so we were really appreciative of the fans provided. The location was wonderful, it was peaceful but within easy reach of busy Lyme Regis. If you like pulled pork baps, then I don't think you can find finer than from The Whole Hog. We also enjoyed take out lunch from Red Panda. There is not much light pollution where the property is situated so it's just about possible to see The Milky Way from the terrace. We highly recommend a visit to Sculpture by the Lakes (about an hour away in Dorchester, although no children under 14 or dogs allowed) and The Tunnel Tree Tops (about 15 minutes away in Charmouth). The cliff walk from Seaton Beach to Beer was also lovely. All in all, it was a wonderful and much appreciated break.

  • "John and Kathryn were very friendly and welcoming hosts."

    The cottage was very clean and tidy, and the welcome pack on arrival exceeded expectations. We had a very enjoyable stay, and would recommend The Apple Barn for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

  • "The Apple Barn was a fabulous place to stay."

    The standard of the property was top spec, and was very comfortable in every way. The owners were very helpful and very hospitable. My only constructive comment would be, it would be useful to have somewhere to wash your dog off outside, especially as it rained a lot when we were there. There was an outside tap, surrounded by pot plants, and would have been great if there has been a small hosepipe attachment on it. This would save carrying the dog inside to wash off, especially if your dog is a bit large, and all the carpets are cream!! I was just trying to avoid making a muddy mess! Thank you for a very long awaited enjoyable relaxing stay.

  • "The friendly yet unobtrusive owners were determined to make us feel at home."

    Despite a week of stormy weather we were able to enjoy the near by coastline and small towns as well as walk and explore the immediate area. A bonus was the secure field where our dog could free-run.

    Mrs ReevesMay 2021

  • "The Apple barn offers fantastic family accommodation situated in a peaceful setting."

    The Apple barn is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, a cosy home from home. It is ideally situated for a drive out to the seaside towns. We are a family of 6 with two dogs and the Apple barn was spacious and facilities were great. The dogs even had a allocated field where they could run freely off lead. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Apple Barn and would highly recommend.

The property

With far reaching views that span across fields and countryside of the Axe Valley, Apple Barn is beautiful barn conversion situated within the owner's 17th century, grade II listed farmstead.

Bordering Devon, Dorset and Somerset with Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast just 5 miles away, this is a perfect base for exploring.

Step up to the decking and through patio doors into the beautiful open plan living room, with solid oak floors and an elegant sweeping open tread staircase.

The room is divided into a comfortable relaxing space with two sofas arranged around a wood burning stove, a dining space centrally positioned with a country kitchen at the far end, equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay.

A step leads down to a spacious, ground floor king-size bedroom with large patio doors, a TV and en-suite shower room.

On the first floor there are two beautifully dressed en-suite bedrooms, a zip link, twin room that can be joined together as a super-king bed and a double room.

Outside, a large decked patio looks out across the Axe Valley and is equipped with tables and chairs.

There is a charcoal BBQ available and plenty of parking.

A dog is welcome and there are plenty of countryside walks right on the doorstep, however your pet must be kept under control at all times due to livestock.

The town of Axminster is just 2 miles away, which hosts a weekly market and offers a number of supermarkets and the popular River Cottage Canteen.

River Cottage HQ is just outside the town.

For days at the beach Lyme Regis and Charmouth offer a fine variety of good restaurants, pubs and shops and an opportunity to enjoy the magnificent coastal scenery from the South West Coastal Path.

Challenge yourself for a walk to the top of the famous Golden Cap, Dorset's heights point.

For little ones, the Axe Valley Nature Reserve can be found just outside of Axminster, and the famous Donkey Sanctuary near Sidmouth is a must visit for any age.
