The Barn is peaceful and yet just a mile from the local village of Bratton Fleming with its well-stocked shop/cafe and post office. The barn is surrounded by pasture and overlooks an ancient wooded valley with a babbling river, making it a perfect base both for those wishing to just relax and enjoy the Barn, its surroundings and beautiful walks from the doorstep and those wanting to explore everything North Devon has to offer from the wild beauty of Exmoor to the beaches of the ‘golden coast’. With exposed beams, vaulted ceiling and stunning stone walls, the barn combines the timeless beauty of the area with all the essentials of modern living. Boasting a private hot tub (at no extra cost) great after a busy day, FREE Wi-Fi both superfast and unlimited and the luxury of underfloor heating.

On your way pause and have a cuddle with our hand raised, tame sheep! And in the evening curl up on the comfy sofas with a good book or watch a film, followed by a peaceful soak in the hot tub and, as Exmoor National Park is an International Dark Sky Reserve and home to some of the darkest skies in the country, gaze up at the stars, really special and quite spectacular.

Beautiful accommodation in charming location
Absolutely loved our stay in ‘the Barn’, it was beautifully decorated with everything you could wish for and more! The area is stunning and very different to the flat moors we have where we live so was excellent for walking and exploring. Maria was friendly and helpful, suggesting places to visit and things to do in the area. Thank you so much for a lovely stay, I’m sure we will return in years to come! Xx

5/5 Excellent

We wish we could give a higher rating!! The Barn is an absolute gem. Me and my partner had an amazing stay here for his his birthday. Maria and Steve were the perfect hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay one to remember. They supplied extra goodies on our arrival and everything was pefect down to the finer detail. The barn itself really is a beautiful house and everything was spotless and bright! We really didnt want to leave when it was time to check out. Dont hesitate on booking this property. A quiet get-away in a pefect, peaceful location with amazing hosts is what you'll find. You will also get more than you could hope for, for your money. We will be recommending to everyone and sure to see your ourselves again!
