Blackdown Hills an AONB, between Honiton and Chard, offer great walks and with Lyme Regis, Sidmouth, and Exeter all easily accessible.

In a glorious setting in the Blackdown Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and between Honiton and Chard, lie The Barns around a cobbled yard. Both detached holiday barn conversions are decorated and furnished to a good standard andhave their own gardens and fabulous views across the countryside. Situated in the grounds of the owner’s Grade II listed, medieval farmhouse, they are in an excellent location from which to explore numerous National Trust houses, great walks and the cathedral city of Exeter.

Situated between both Dartmoor and Exmoor National parks, both with brilliant walks, heather clad tors, ponies, rugged terrain and quaint villages. Within six miles there are local family run shops and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen. Shops 21/2 miles and pub 1½ miles.

    A very tranquil location but the track down to the cottage is very rough my vehicle is close to the ground and invariably scraped the loose cobbles. A 4X4 would have coped better! The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped but needs a blackout roller blind in the bedroom, the sun easily penetrated the existing one and shone directly in our faces when in bed.

    This is a lovely cottage amid rolling green hills and farmland so provides a great retreat. We wanted the quiet location and were happy to drive everywhere but if you want pubs or shops on the doorstep then you may find this cottage a little too remote. It's a large place for 2 people so plenty of room and the layout works really well. We have a 5 month old baby and she could sleep at the other end of the lounge without us disturbing her. The kitchen was really well equipped which isn't always the case with rental cottages and the general standard of decor, fixtures and fittings was excellent. The place was always warm with heated floors and thick curtains so the log fire was left unused despite it being very cold outside. Our only complaint was the wifi which has a really poor signal and there's unsurprisingly no 4G either. Once connected, it's very fast but the signal kept dropping out as it comes from the main house and has some very thick walls to penetrate. The hot water in the kitchen was also just a dribble and took 5 mins to run hot. We would still return though as the remote location is lovely and most attractions are around 30-40 mins away by car. If it weren't for our baby, we'd also have taken advantage of the lovely walks that start from the cottage so perfect for a walking based holiday.
