The Barn, Lower Upcott, Chudleigh, Devon, TQ13 0DH

Description of the holiday cottage

The Barn in Kerswell near Chudleigh is a high quality self catering holiday cottage with lots of character and finished with plenty of style in a fantastic location. With spectacular views to the Moors in the distance, The Barn near chudleigh sleeps six people in 3 spacious bedrooms and is ideal if you want a holiday home with quality.

The location is great for exploring the Torbay aream, a visit to Exeter for shopping or a trip to Dartmoor with the main trunk road easily accessible. The Barn is one and a half miles from Chudleigh, in the tiny hamlet of Kerswell, a smart and spacious cottage converted from a barn, with split-level foundations and upside down layout to make the most of superb views over miles of beautiful rolling countryside.

At the front, a big gravelled courtyard (table/chairs) which owners occasionally use to access their adjoining home and you have your own enclosed outdoor space (tables/chairs, barbecue) at the back. Inside the Barn in Kerswll you will find a stylish and contemporary finish with limestone-tiled floors (rugs), big apex beams. From the courtyard, door to tiled hall (room for coats/boots).

Upstairs, huge living area with big sofas positioned for those far-reaching views, TV/DVD, woodburner (logs included) and glazed door to rear garden; 2 steps up to bright dining/kitchen area (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, freezer, larder fridge) with stable doors and further glazed door to rear garden.

Downstairs, two generous bedrooms (carpeted) including a double bedroom with en suite bathroom (suite with separate shower) with additional door to hall, and a family room with five foot double and twin beds, en suite bathroom (suite with separate shower) and glazed doors to front courtyard. Beach towels provided. Spring water. A peaceful, rural spot, yet with excellent access to city, coast and moors.

Just stayed for a week at this cottage. There was 6 of us staying and we all had an amazing week. The cottage is equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The owner has thought of everything. We loved everything about it. Thank you!

We just spent a week there with our two children. It's a stunning converted barn with all mods and cons. Chudleigh village is only a short drive and has a small co-op and other shops. Great views at a peaceful location but with easy access to A38 that can take you to South coast and the gorgeous Dartmoor National park. Only 10' from Exeter as well and there is so much to do around there.

But even if you decide to stay in it's such a lovely cosy space where you can relax by the fire. Very friendly owners who live next door and will attend to every need. On ar

We are currently staying at The Barn while our own home is being renovated and we like it so much we have just extended our stay.

We chose it because of the proximity to home, and we needed access to schools etc at the start of the new school year, but that aside, as a holiday let, it is exactly what we would have chosen further afield.

The house is split- level to take in the wonderful views. It is superbly fitted out, and well decorated with lovely homely touches.

The Kitchen is the hub of the home and it has everything you could need to cater for all even
