Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 10
The Barn at Redyeates Farm is a luxury self-catering holiday cottage (sleeps 4 to 10 + cot).
THE BARN originally formed part of the 17th century Redyeates Farmhouse. Now brought up to date to provide 5* luxury accommodation, the Barn is a certain place for a relaxing time and has plenty to keep the children amused within our 3 acre gardens including our own recently resurfaced all-weather tennis court, table tennis, football, ultra-safe quality trampoline (no springs) and fantastic children's climbing frame.
With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, if you like a large bed, there are 2 super-king double bedrooms (both en-suite), a king-size bedroom and a twin bedded room. The property also benefits from a larger than average kitchen to relax in for family meals or if you prefer outside dining, it also has two separate patio areas and a BBQ overlooking the gardens and rolling Devon countryside beyond.
With characterful high ceilings (galleried with beams) there is also a large split-level lounge and dining room. The lounge is a great place to socialise with a log burning stove and if the kitchen / diner is large enough for your needs (seats 8) then you can optionally also have the dining room table setup as an 8ft snooker / pool table - just let us know when you book. The rooms can also be configured differently to allow for up to 10 people in a number of ways e.g. one of the double bedrooms can become 3 single beds or a double and a single. The lounge also has a good quality settee bed. Please let us know when you book if you want a specific configuration or review further on our website.
If you require a smaller property check to see if our Redyeates Dairy is available (Property ID 535360) or if you require a larger property check whether Property ID 539206 is available.
Redyeates Farm is in mid-Devon in one of the best locations for getting to either the north or south coastline and is just 12 miles from either of the National Parks at Exmoor and Dartmoor. Locally there are some very good pubs and restaurants. Taxis and babysitting can easily be arranged in advance. If you like great days out, Redyeates Farm is well placed for easy access to everything that Devon has to offer without having to spend all day in the car.
We do take bookings for short-breaks at certain times of the year i.e. outside of our peak times which is typically when the children are off school. Short breaks are either 3 nights (Friday to Monday) or 4 nights (Monday to Friday). Please email us our check the website for specific pricing and availability.

The West Country region
The region is particularly noted for its beautiful rolling Devon countryside and it is a fantastic location for great days out.
You have the option of visiting many tourist attractions in the area without having to spend a long time in the car. You also have the option if you want a day at the beach to drive to either of the north or south coastlines with their pretty fishing villages and coves as well as rock pools for the children. Either coastline is around 40 minutes away by car. We are also centrally located between either of the National Parks (Exmoor and Dartmoor) being just 12 miles from either park where there are fantastic walks, riding, fishing or cycling opportunities.
If the Cathedral City of Exeter is more your thing, it is about 20 minutes away by car. Here you will find all of the major shops and a huge selection of good places to eat as well as the attractive Exeter quayside.
There is a lot to do nearby and the property is surrounded by a huge variety of attractions and depending on what you like, there is something for everyone within a short distance. Close by, there are pubs with good food, a fantastic farm shop for local produce as well as places to walk, cycle or horse ride.
In Bickleigh (10 minutes), is a beautiful Devon village with many thatched cottages, a 400 year old pub, the Devon Railway centre and 'The Fisherman's Cot', a great pub to sit outside by the river. Bickleigh Mill has an 18th century working water wheel, a woodland, waterside walks and a maze and The Trout is another traditional pub with a beautiful thatched roof. The Mill also has a large shop with gifts, clothing, pottery and crafts and there is an excellent Bistro restaurant and bar open during the day and serving evening meals on certain nights.
In each of our cottages we have an information pack full of ideas for great days out and some examples in the surrounding areas include:-
Devon Railway Centre – 5 miles
Yearlstone Vineyard – 5 miles
12th Century Tiverton Castle – 7 miles
Trout fishery (learn to fish) – 8 miles
Cathedral City of Exeter – 10 miles
Exmoor National Park – 12 miles
Dartmoor National Park – 12 miles
Quad Biking at Quad World – 13 miles
Crealy Adventure Park – 17 miles
National Trust – Castle Drogo – 17 miles
The Devon Railway Centre
Great for the younger ones (or anyone that likes a ride on a narrow gauge railway) and with an indoor play area, wildlife area and the recently added model village, the Devon Railway centre is a real hit with the kids.
Great for the older ones (or children interested in how wine is made), Yearlstone Vineyard is just 5 miles (12 minutes) away and is the oldest vineyard in Devon. Take in a tour of the vineyard and maybe stop for lunch at the vineyard's Deli Shack Cafe with a terrace that overlooks the lovely river Exe valley.
The Devon School of Fishing
Learn to Fish or improve your technique. Fun for all ages, the Devon School of Fly Fishing caters for all age groups and all skill levels from total beginners.
This is one for all the family or relax with a coffee while the kids have fun. For all ages from 6 upwards, Quad World is a well run adventure with smaller quads for the young ones and proper tuition ensuring your children are safe before they go off on their own. The track is half a mile long.
National Trust – Castle Drogo
With the usual National Trust facilities, Castle Drogo was the last ever castle to be built in England. Taking in the beauty of the Teign Valley, or stretching your legs in the gardens, which are perfect for a summer picnic (picnic areas provided), there's plenty to see from the colourful rhododendron valley and rose gardens to the quaint Bunty House (Wendy House) complete with its own miniature garden.
Breakfast is served here from 8.30 every morning if you fancy an early start and there are cafes & shops with local produce and plenty for the children to do with quiz/trail, walks, talks and art and craft workshops.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the best walk in Dartmoor is from Castle Drogo to Fingle Gorge: a two-hour round trip that takes you past the dramatic castle and through an oak-lined gorge to an ancient stone bridge and traditional pub – classic Dartmoor sights….. enjoy.
Lustleigh Village on Dartmoor
Hidden in a wooded combe, this film-set-perfect village is one of Dartmoor's most lovingly maintained. Its thatched cottages are grouped around a 13th-century church, with the Primrose Tea Rooms to one side and village shop to the other. The rural idyll is completed by the cricket pitch, communal apple orchard and a friendly pub serving real ales and great food.
Crealy – Devon's Greatest Adventure Park
The Park has over 60 rides and attractions set in over 100 acres of glorious Devon countryside. The park caters for the whole family, from the smallest children to parents and grandparents alike. There are over 100 animals, 30 outdoor attractions and a variety of other activities to choose from. With heart-stopping rides for thrill seekers to soft-play and animal petting for younger guests, Devon's Crealy is a major South West attraction for family days out.

"Beautiful location and cottage was stunning with very welcoming owners."
The cottage is in very private grounds with excellent views. All amenities were accounted for. The owners could not of been more helpful and welcoming. We used the tennis court every day and when the owners saw us playing badminton on the grounds they ordered a full size net and set it up for us a few days later. The property was clean and extremely comfortable (like home from home). The location allows you to visit either North or South Devon while using it as a base. Very tranquil. Beds were extremely comfortable. Could not recommend highly enough!

"Fantastic property / fantastic location"
Before arriving at Redyeates Farm the pce of life seems to slows as the roads get smaller - the instructions to find the cottage were perfect – don't leave home without them else you may struggle. The description of the barn on the website doesn't really do the place justice, I would happily move in to this place if it were possible! We stayed in the Barn because the Dairy (which is also lovely) was booked and the Barn was much larger than myself and my wife needed foir our romantic weekend. Lovely features, stunning views of the surrounding countryside and all of the rooms are fitted out to a very high standard and everything was very clean (something my other half is quite fussy over). We both slept like logs the whole time we were there, don't know if it was the super comfy huge bed or the complete silence asides from the sounds of the countryside. We had a couple of questions during our stay mostly relating to directions and finding out about the area the owners couldn't have been more helpful. They also showed us around the Dairy and the annex which is for larger groups. We had a small problem with the shower so used the other one in the property – by the time we got home from a day trip out it was fixed (user error). We did a mix of alternative days eating in and then out, kitchen very well equipped with all that's really required. We have booked again already and this time are bringing the rest of the family as I can say for sure my brother's kids will love the grounds, with all the play equipment and space to roam like free range children plus he is a tennis freak and the tennis court is really good to have a knock around on! All in all its the best cottage we have ever stayed in – we both loved it – if the Dairy is available I would recommend that too. I would say though that if your looking for a lively night-life this isn't the place – there are some great pubs, restaurants, beautiful countryside and lots to do around the area – but not nightlife unless you go into Exeter – about 20 minute drive. When we have a big family get together in the future we will definitely rent the Barn, Dairy and the annex – its such a great place for the whole family to get together.

"Just what the doctor ordered"
When I arrived I had a lovely welcome and a well deserved cup of tea was waiting for me. Although I was traveling alone without the family I had chance to wind down and enjoy the delights of the countryside and surrounding area. The facilities were great and the bed was so comfortable I found it difficult to get up in the morning. I am looking forward to coming down again with the family in August. Thank you for making me feel so welcome. You are great hosts :-)
