Description from owner

The magnificent Nordic interior styled 'Blackdown Barn' lies at the foot of the Blackdown Hills – officially recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty thanks to its breath-taking mix of ancient heath and native woodland. Located within the 13th Century parish of Broadhembury and nestled within the soft, East Devon countryside, from the grounds of the property you can see not only the Torrs of Dartmoor but also the coastline of Lyme Bay, whilst benefiting from being just half an hour from the beautiful beaches of Devon's Jurassic Coast, the rugged beauty of the Exmoor National Park and by way of contrast; the theatres, restaurants and high class shopping of Exeter – the shire's very own Cathedral City.

Blackdown Barn is a self-contained detached building in it's own privately fenced grounds, and offers guests a fabulous degree of space on a luxurious scale. A massive 100sq metres of galleried living space beneath a high, open-beamed timber ceiling, providing an unparalleled sense of freedom and refreshment the moment you walk through the Barn's double doors. The Barn brings you face to face with nature too, thanks to all its six west facing windows which look straight into the tall sycamore trees of the property's very own woodland copse – the home of Tawny owls, Tree-creepers, Woodpeckers and other woodland birds.

With its gym, pool table room, surround-sound home cinema system with 55" Smart TV' lounge area, cosy library and family indoor games zones, magnificent 12 seater dining area, Blackdown Barn's multiple features offer relaxation and entertainment for everyone no matter what the weather holds! In the summer, there is the shared outdoor heated swimming pool with family barbeque & outdoor dining for 12, along with large secluded gardens for summer games [please note the pool and gardens are only shared with us as owners so that our children have a chance to use the pool in the summer too!, but we are very aware of guests privacy]. The property provides a fantastic location for large or extended families, or groups of friends, with the convenience of our local pub within a very short walking distance. Well behaved Stag and Hen parties are welcome!

Accommodation comprises: Massive 100sq.m central living area, 1 x 40 sq.m mezzanine galleried gym room; 1 x 40 sq.m mezzanine galleried games room with 7ft pool table (also with oak top for further table top games); 3 bedrooms: 1 master/family bedroom with kingsize bed and additional full single size French day bed; 1 twin room with two extra wide single beds; 1 double bedroom with en suite shower room. Additional family bathroom with freestanding bath, and one further cloakroom (this cloakroom has a loo only, not shower room as in the summary below). Fully equipped kitchen with our popular lime green Smeg larder fridge, complete with 2 electric cookers and hobs, microwave cooking facilities, and 8kg washer/dryer. Boot room providing ample space for footwear, luggage or buggy storage. Two large double sofa beds providing flexible extra sleeping for an additional 4 people if required, allowing maximum sleeping for 11. Cot & high chair also available. (Some additional fold down chair beds are also provided for groups who don't wish to share double beds.)

All bed linen and towels supplied, along with swimming/beach towels, and double size sleeping bags and blankets for the sofa beds. Well behaved dogs/pets are welcome - please discuss with owners your requirements. Plenty of hot water and centrally heated with a direct oil boiler, the property is warm and welcomiing.

The property is owned by a family with 4 children, and much thought has been given to the requirements of families or large groups. We hope very much you consider staying with us!

The location is perfect for walkers, set within the Blackdown Hills, there are wonderful woodland walks and trails to choose from, and a short drive will take you to coast paths and rugged walks.

“Fantastic.”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2015

Our family which comprised of 8 adults 2 children and 1 new-born stayed here for a week in late October and have to say it was the best UK holidays we have ever had! The barn was beautiful and had everything we could possible require. On arrival Michaela greeted us with a vase of fresh flowers and in the kitchen was a beautiful hamper which included biscuits, chocolates, wine and in the fridge there were scones with jam and cream! We had planned to have many days out over the week but with such a large living area with pool table and a variety of games and due to the weather we spent many a day inside enjoying each others company and playing games watching movies on the large 3D TV, however we did venture out to Sidmouth which was a lovely pebble beach and town along with a few walks around the local villages! Tesco is just a 5 minute drive away. There is a great field in which we were able to pick apples and make a scrumptious apple crumble and horses for the children to look at. Unfortunately the pool was closed as it was a cold time of the year (which we knew at time of booking) but the pool area looked lovely and we plan on returning in a warmer time of the year to make use of these facilities. Many thanks to Hugo and Michaela for making our stay memorable.

“Excellent!”

The barn provided everything we wanted for a extended family Christmas holiday. The very large open plan living/dining area was great! The children had heaps of space to run around and play with their new toys (whilst the adults played pool!) The location is superb. Secluded and quiet, with a good pub just down the road. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, she was lovely, and helpful. In summary, a superb barn in a great location at the right price. Highly recommended!

Fab place, fab owners, luxurious, food hamper and all the little extras were amazing, bed linen and towels provided were luxurious, owners went out of their way to accommodate my party, swimming pool was exceptionally warm which was good as we didn't have the best of the weather but was stil able to have a swim, bbq was a brilliant size, i could go on, but to sum it up amazing luxury

“Wonderful, fabulous, amazing!”

We booked Blackdown Barn for a hen weekend after reading the reviews and seeing the pictures - which didn't do the property justice. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home, there is so much room and the house is very well equipped with comfy furniture, wonderful beds and soft fluffy towels. The furniture and furnishings are amazing and the dining table is great to sit and chat round. We were so lucky with the weather, using both the pool and barbeque which was great for relaxing round with a glass of Pimms before an evening of fun! The owners couldn't have been more helpful - and the complimentary groceries were to die for! We are already planning a return visit for a girlie weekend next year!

“If you're looking for a place in Devon, and never want to come back!”

I went to Blackdown Barn with my family, we were a party of ten and a very mixed crowd. There were three generations of the family staying together. There was something for everyone, whether people wanted to play games together, have some quiet downtime or get out and see Devon, The barn is ideally located and anywhere in Devon is barely little more than an hours commute away. The owners were very welcoming, and gave us a charming welcome pack along with a comprehensive tour and were very accomodating and helpful. The property itself is lovely, well furnished, very comfortable and we didnt want to leave! For those booking in the summer there is even a pool to relax in which we werent able to try but is definitely an added extra. It was ideal for a large family like mine and I'm sure others will feel the same.
