Description from owner
'The Byre' is our luxury holiday home, situated in rural tranquillity on the Somerset / Devon border - a perfect location to relax, or explore the surrounding area.
'The Byre' was newly converted from an old farm building in the latter part of 2010 - and has been let out from late 2010. Set in a rural location on the Somerset / Devon border, 'The Byre' is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area or visiting the numerous attractions. It is situated just 200 metres from the Grand Western Canal nature reserve - with excellent walking, fishing and cycling along 12 miles of canal.
Further afield are the historic town of Wellington, the Blackdown Hills and of course the open expanses of Exmoor. The coasts of West Somerset, North Devon, and South Devon, each with their unique features, are also easily accessible
Normal changeover day is Friday, but this can be flexible outside of the peak season (May - August) and can also be flexible for late bookings subject to availability. The website is set to allow inquiries for any check-in day, but please note we try to restrict this to Friday in the summer in order to keep prices down. Check in is usually 3.30pm; check out 10.00am
Further details indoors
As well as being an excellent base, we set out to make a luxury holiday home as well, so you can relax away from it all. 'The Byre' is furnished throughout in oak and leather, has superior beds and soft furnishings, a fitted kitchen and a state of the art TV (LED backlit with Blu-Ray player / home cinema) plus TV/DVD in both bedrooms.
'The Byre' has a delightful open plan kitchen / dining room / lounge with a newly fitted kitchen, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, ceramic hob and oven. The lounge features under-floor heating, a log-burning fire, and a high definition LED backlit TV, with blu-ray/DVD home cinema, and CD player. The master bedroom is furnished in oak, has its own TV/DVD player, and en-suite with shower. The second bedroom features twin beds, convertible to a 'super-king' double bed. This room also features its own TV/DVD player, and gives access to the master (jack-and-jill) bathroom
Further details outdoors
The Byre is situated in an elevated tranquil rural location overlooking open farmland. There is a large terrace, stretching the length of the property with patio doors from both the master bedroom and the lounge. On the terrace is a luxury 6-person hot tub (from Coast Spas) providing perfect relaxation all year round. Private barbecue facilities and seating are also provided. The Byre is just a 200 metre walk from the Grand Western Canal nature reserve - superb for walking, cycling, fishing; hire boats are also available from Tiverton.

“A hidden gem”
The owner goes over and above to meet your needs and requests. He really helped us out after the borders closed and our holiday was cancelled last minute. Lovely gifts provided. The cottage is amazing and every little detail has been thought of to make your stay comfortable. The views from the hot tub are the best! Can’t wait to visit again and bring our children this time. Thanks Tim
“The Byre at Xmas”
We stayed at the Byre over the Christmas week, was lovely, quiet and relaxed. The owner put a decorated Xmas tree in there and it immediately felt homely! Hot tub is amazing and lovely views and the … More
“A little piece of Paradise!”
Stayed at the Byre for our son’s wedding in Clayhidon. We had a wonderful stay in excellent accommodation with everything you could wish for in a property. The hot tub was amazing as were the delicious goodies that were left for us. The caretaker and her husband were friendly and helpful, excellent. We shared the garden with rabbits and a sheep, the views were stunning. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting a peaceful break in beautiful surroundings.
This place is a hidden little gem on the Devon Somerset border. My wife and I decided to go to The Byre for a bit of a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and it didn’t disappoint. This converted barn is tastefully decorated with stunning views across the countryside. It really is pretty much in the middle of nowhere so you do need a car if you want to go anywhere. But considering this is exactly what we were looking for this wasn’t a problem. The hot tub jacuzzi was amazing, we spent every evening of our stay in it and watched a lunar eclipse and a couple of passes from the ISS during our stay all from the relaxing bubbling hot tub. The Byre is a credit to Tim the owner, a job very well done. We shall be returning at some point to enjoy the peace and quite again.the property has everything you would have at home, a hob and oven, fridge freezer along with a washing machine and a small dishwasher. The only downside and this is a very minor downside is a short part of the road leading to the property is very loose and rocky. My vehicle has quite low profile tyres and didn’t take to it very well but it is only about 50 yards if that. Normal to larger tyres would have no problems. All in all well worth the stay at a reasonable price.
“Brilliant as always....”
Third time here and never disappoints. Thanks again for a brilliant stay. Will be booking for next year.
