The Experience

This 17th-century hayloft has been renovated with attention to detail and filled with locally-made ceramics and original art. Joe and Sarah live in the large house next door with their dog and will greet you then leave you in complete privacy.

The kitchen has all the things you don’t want to buy for a short visit – herbs, spices, tea, coffee, jam – plus a welcome basket with local eggs, milk and bread. The snug is on the mezzanine level: feel warm with a book in front of the log-burner, play a board game and help yourself to some local gin out of the honesty bar hidden in an antique cabinet.

There’s a small terrace with a table and chairs for sitting out, but there’s plenty to do in the area – walking, pony trekking, canoeing, fishing; stroll into Ashburton or drive to Buckfast Abbey in seven minutes.

The perfect bolthole for a romantic few nights tucked away in a beautifully renovated hayloft. Brilliant location for a short stroll out for dinner in the evenings and a short drive onto the moor for some bracing walks. I came away inspired by the enviable interior design and clever use of space.

The neighbourhood

Ashburton was at the centre of the tin trade in the Middle Ages and is now famous for its antique shops, bookshops, galleries and cookery school. Year on year the artisan bakeries, delis, cafes and restaurants increase so it's the perfect place to potter about in – try Rust and the Wolf or the Old Library for good food.

Local points of interest from Jolyon White

  • Enjoy breakfast in the sunshine on the private terrace or cosy up under blankets under the stars at night.
  • A short stroll into Ashburton where you can visit antique shops, delis and excellent restaurants. Ashburton is the foodie capital of Devon, home to one of the top cookery schools in the country.


Jolyon White

Joe and Sarah are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. They are at hand during your stay at the Hayloft but want to leave you to relax and enjoy your stay. Sarah is an artist – The Hayloft was once her studio – and Joe runs a gallery in Totnes; all the artworks in The Hayloft are from his gallery and are for sale.
