Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this barn enables guests to sample peaceful country life, close to the Hartland Heritage Coast with its breathtaking rugged coastline, pebble beaches and rolling deep blue seas. On site, you will have the opportunity to spot an array of different birds depending on the season, including swifts, buzzards, kestrels and barn owls. Hedgehogs visit, sheep (with their lambs) graze the fields across the valley and fresh eggs can be provided by the resident rescue hens. Visit the pretty fishing villages of Appledore (7 miles) and Clovelly (8 miles), and explore the Hartland Peninsula (13 miles) which has played host to many TV and film productions. Drive to either Devon’s Westward Ho! Beach, (5 miles) or Cornwall’s popular Bude (23 miles) with endless sandy beaches to spend memorable days surfing, swimming or sunbathing.

This charming barn sits within the grounds of the owner’s farmhouse. Park and unload beside the barn and plan your adventures. Heading into the barn you will find yourself in the hall where clever boxed seating allows coats, walking boots and wellies to be kicked off and stored easily – a large picture window here adds to the light and airy feel. A spacious and contemporary shower room with a walk-in shower and WC is found just off the hall. Heading into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, you can look forward to a cosy evening around the warming wood burner (first basket of logs included), a Smart TV, comfy sofa and feature chair. The kitchen area has an electric oven and hob, built-in microwave, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. The bedroom completes the accommodation and comprises a king-size bed and a Smart TV.

Stepping outside via the kitchen door is a small, enclosed courtyard with a patio table and chairs. Guests are welcome to wander the land however, dogs must be kept on a lead. There is allocated parking for one car. Located nearby is a utility area where there is access to a washing machine. On-site there is a type 2 electric car charging point which can be used by arrangement with the owner for an extra cost.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
