This idyllic and cosy retreat in the heart of Devon’s rolling hills is a superb setting for reconnecting with nature and total relaxation.

Situated on the borders of Devon, Dorset and Somerset, this lovely little cottage provides the perfect base for exploring these three counties and has something for everyone. Devon has a huge expanse of rugged moorland and rolling hills. The town of Axminster is just one mile away from the cottage and has a wide range of shops, inns, restaurants and a sports centre. The famous River Cottage is also not far from the property, where you can book in advance to dine or take part in a cooking class. The owner, Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall has also opened River Cottage shop in Axminster.

Abbotsbury Abbey, Crealy Adventure Park, Bicton Park, Burrows Farm Gardens and a wide range of National Trust gardens and properties are all within easy driving distance of your cosy Devon accommodation.

 The cosy barn offers one comfortable king-size bedroom on the ground floor of the property and one twin upstairs on the first floor. The family bathroom, which can be accessed by two steps up and two down from the bedrooms, has a shower over bath and WC. There is also a separate WC within the property for convenience. The lounge/kitchen/diner has been tastefully furnished with polished wooden floors, TV/DVD, iPod dock and a woodburner to relax in front of (with the first bag of logs included).

Bloomsbury barn was a very nice nice, tidy and comfortable accommodation. Nice also to have a bit of outside space to sit out. Good location being just a mile from Axminster where there's a Tesco and Co op and only 5 miles from the coast. Really enjoyed our stay, would definitely return and recommend.

Bloomsbury Barn is a wonderful bolthole for a family break. The barn is cosy, comfortable and clean. All kitchen equipment needed is there to make the stay hassle free. We really enjoyed our stay. The barn is in a great location for exploring Lyme Regis, Charnmouth and the surrounding area. We will certainly stay again as the Barn is a lovely placeRead more to be. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely suprise too. Thank you Tim. Hide

We had a lovely week at Bloomsbury Barn. Comfortable beds & lots of useful kitchen equipment. Useful to have a washing machine in the Barn, but need to go next door for the tumble dryer - but not a bother. The house is in a good location to visit Lyme Regis, Seaton, Bridport, Beer etc.
