Barn | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Often referred to as "The countryside by the sea" East Devon is the ideal location to position yourself to explore beautiful countryside and enjoy days out at the beach. Swallows Nest is an open plan, eco-friendly designer barn conversion. A luxury 5 star pad with vaulted ceilings and large windows that let light flood through into the light and airy, tastefully furnished open plan interior. Warmed by underfloor heating and a woodburning stove, to toast your toes after a days walking in the countryside, the barn is chic and uncluttered. During summer months, relax on the patio or explore the shared garden and lakes (care must be taken with young children). Luxury soft organic bedding, an organic welcome hamper brimming with local goodies, handmade soap and environmentally friendly products are all provided for your stay.
With easy access to the Jurassic Coastline enjoy days at the beach, Beer, Seaton and Lyme Regis all within a short drive, or shop till you drop in the city of Exeter where boutiques, department stores, trendy bars and cafes are all in abundance. If you are seeking a quieter life then there is no better place. Wild swimming, unpolluted night skies and award winning local food are just a taste of what is on your doorstep. The thriving market town of Honiton is less than a 10 minute drive, brimming with interesting antique shops, cafes and boutiques. There are also a number of out of town supermarkets for the essentials. Take a trip to Axminster just 15mins drive and sample the delights at The River Cottage Canteen, or River Cottage HQ close by. The historic villages of Luppitt and Upottery are just a few minutes drive both with local pubs.

The West Country region
There is so much on offer for anyone looking to take a holiday in Devon. It is truly a beautiful and diverse county with sweeping moorland, wooded valleys to dramatic coastline, long sandy beaches, hidden inlets and traditional seaside towns and villages. Famous for its traditionally mild climate although 2010 saw snowfall in areas that exceed the Alps. The county is also proud of its locally grown produce where green lush fields and crystal clear seas produce some of the very best food the UK has to offer.
For those who enjoy home cooking most of this is available through farmers markets and local village shops. For those who would rather leave it to the professionals, you will be tempted by an outstanding variety of fantastic restaurants from fine dining through a traditional Devon cream tea! So my advise is come and experience the lure of this glorious county - the scenery is spectacular and the food mouth-watering, delicious and if you are lucky the sun will shine and you will indeed have found the holiday of your dreams!
Close by the village of Luppit, not quite within walking distance does have a pub, however Honiton has a fine selection of restaurants, pubs, tea rooms and coffee shops to enjoy. The town also has several antique shops so make sure you find time to browse you might pick up a bargain! There are also 3 out of town supermarkets, Tesco, Lidl and Aldi, plus a number of grocery stores in the town centre.
You have a choice of coastlines if you choose to stay here as the area is so accessible. You can be in the South Hams in less than 40 minutes, or the Torbay Coast in close to half an hour. Exmouth, a well-established family favourite seaside resort with its two miles of soft sands is also within easy reach, however I recommend you explore the Jurassic coastline, Sidmouth, Seaton, Beer are just a few of the beautiful coastal towns that make up this charismatic and diverse area of Devon and all within a half hours drive. A little further will take you to Lyme Regis and the Dorset coast.
Foodies will love this area as local produce is in abundance. Shop in Farmers markets or high street markets, or eat in some of the best restaurants, gastro pubs and beach cafes in the land. River Cottage Canteen at Axminster is less than a 15 minute drive and book ahead if you want to try the award winning River Cottage HQ.
