The Experience

Step through French doors to a warmly inviting, beamed, open-plan living space with a sleek kitchen at one end, comfy sofas arranged around a wood-burner at the other and a long wooden dining table in the middle. It’s a super space for all being together: cooking, reading, playing board games, watching TV. An oak staircase leads down to three good-sized bedrooms – the master has an en suite and one can be a big double or a twin – all have country views.

Soak up the sun in the walled courtyard, fire up the barbecue and enjoy al fresco meals at a table made from threshing wheels found in the barn; let kids and dogs run free in the large, enclosed garden dotted with trees and wildflowers. It’s peaceful here, the only sounds are birdsong and the occasional machinery rumble from the farm nearby.

Stroll 20 minutes to Church House Inn for a cracking Sunday roast or a pub supper; for seafood try the award-winning Oyster Shack in Bigbury. The coast is a 15-minute drive.

Absolutely spectacular accommodation in a beautiful part of Devon. Easy access to lots of gorgeous beaches and lovely towns. We loved our stay and hope to come back again in the future.

Rebecca, Thornbury

Beautiful and well appointed cottage in a wonderful area. Highly recommended.

Chris, Bristol

Spacious and beautifully renovated barn in a peaceful location. Beds are very comfortable and everything was clean. Gorgeous bathrooms. Close to stunning beaches, walks and towns. Property would best suit couples or a family with older children due to some steep steps, but there is a lovely large garden which would be ideal for children to play in. Super friendly hosts; we felt very welcomed.

Verity, Southsea

A cosy and comfortable stay in this converted, well appointed barn. A perfect place to explore the nearby coast.

Maggie, Lyme Regis

We have loved staying in your beautiful barn in such a wonderful area. Amazing views from here and gorgeous beaches nearby. Barn was spotlessly clean, so well equipped and very comfortable. Thank you so much, we’d love to come back one day!

Julia, UK

We chose to go to this part of Devon simply on wanting to stay here – it is every bit as amazing as it looks, very comfortable, beautifully converted and equipped better than the majority of rentals. The kitchen is very well equipped: many different glasses, lots of pans, good knives etc. The garden is secure and spacious, perfect for our dog (although smaller dogs could perhaps escape under the gates?). It was peaceful at night-time – we enjoyed watching the last of the summer swallows and housemartins. We walked on the coastal paths but also visited Dartmoor twice, a versatile location!

Kirstie, Wales

A beautiful barn , recently renovated with all the modern appliances and elements one could dream for! Far reaching views across the countryside, a lovely airy and clean place with great taste! We felt incredibly comfortable in the space, had a barbecue with friends in their outdoor second kitchen and just enjoyed the space and the surroundings so much! Big plus is you are 5 minutes away from Bantham beach and also the new space called Outside (great organic food, coffee and a worldrenowed skater bowl and activities for kids and adults) We basically spent our entire holiday there.

Kathleen, Hamburg

The accommodation was beautiful and amazingly equipped. Stunning setting with views and clean throughout. We had a wonderful time.

Amanda, Taunton

We had a wonderful time at the barn, it's in a beautiful location which we loved and it has been beautifully renovated with everything we needed for the week. We just love that area so great to be back to explore. Thanks for all your help, I'm sure we'd love to stay here again, of course we had the sunshine all week which was an added bonus.

Karen, Fleet, Hants

An immaculate and beautifully renovated barn in the middle the Devon’s rolling countryside. Stylishly decorated this is a very comfortable home from home, amazing views across the valley. Perfect for lovers of the outdoor life, wonderful rural walks from the doorstep or take a picnic and explore the coast path, stopping at one of the nearby beautiful beaches for a swim.

The neighbourhood

The tiny hamlet of Higher Hatch is 0.8 miles from Churchstow for a village shop, post office and pub or to Aune Valley butchers, farm shop, deli and cafe – both a 20-minute walk. Kingsbridge is 3 miles for bigger shops and a cinema. Bantham, Bigbury and Thurlestone beaches are all four miles, Hope Cove 6. Dartmoor is a 25-30 min drive.

Local points of interest from Simon & Teresa

  • Wake up to uninterrupted views of the Devon countryside and Avon valley. The river becomes tidal within 2 miles. A 2-hour walk takes you down to Aveton Gifford (National Cycle Route 28) and along the estuary on the tidal road and out to Burgh Island
  • 20 minutes walk to the village to pick up a paper, enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the garden and plan your day. Enjoy a sundowner in the courtyard & watch the swifts swallows & house martins swooping overhead
  • Walk along shady lanes scented with bluebell & wild garlic to the Oyster Shack or Crab Shell Inn within a 1 hour walk or Aune Valley Café even closer (20 minutes)
  • 50 miles of coast within 15-30 minutes drive – Newton Ferrers to Dartmouth. Hire a board or bike from Churchstow & take your pick of beaches or rides or a stretch of the South West Coastal path. And work up an appetite for a feast at Wild Artichokes
  • Take a wine tasting tour at the Calancombe Estate or Modbury (20 minutes) or visit the Plymouth Gin factory (40 minutes) and take in some history around the Hoe & Barbican
  • And then there’s Dartmoor to explore! Over 160 Tors to climb or, if you prefer, antiquing in Ashburton (30 minutes), eat at Emilia’s or Rafikis or sign up for a cooking class at Ashburton Cookery School


Simon & Teresa

Simon and Teresa always wanted a place by the sea. They spotted this tumbledown barn and spent several years carefully converting it, with the aid of an excellent team of artisan builders. Teresa is a conservator with a great eye for design and detail which shines through in this immaculate and warmly welcoming conversion.
