Property Details

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 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! And in the summer, shared with the owners is the outdoor heated swimming pool with family barbeque & outdoor dining for 12, along with large secluded gardens for summer games, the property provides a fantastic location for large or extended families, or groups. 

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 electric cooker and 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.

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.
