Berry's Barn is a stunning barn conversion on the outskirts of Colyton, Devon, and sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms and is pet-friendly.
Berry's Barn is a stunning conversion which has transformed a former cider press farm building into very stylish holiday accommodation. Lovingly refurbished by the owners of this working farm to provide a high-quality, spacious property in a truly, rural setting. Located on the outskirts of the pretty village of Colyton, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and only a short drive from the magnificent Jurassic coast of East Devon and West Dorset. This attractive stone cottage has been sympathetically restored, retaining much of the character of the original building. The recent conversion means the barn benefits from the added comforts of pristine new bathrooms as well as a stunning modern fitted kitchen, outdoor patios with seating and a games room. Environmentally-friendly under-floor heating makes this a great choice for out-of-season breaks too. The history of the property has been cleverly captured by retaining artefacts set into the rafters to display the original farm machinery that was used to drive the cider making process in the last century.
The ancient village of Colyton was established in Saxon times. The picturesque Axe River and estuary is also very nearby amidst the unspoilt countryside. The area is a haven for walkers and the famous South West Coast Path lies close by with spectacular views across Lyme Bay. The local villages are fortunate to have a good choice of public houses, offering a selection of locally sourced produce and local beers. The Axe Estuary Wetlands, a well-managed wildlife reserve is a very short drive away where a large number of birds congregate to feed on the mud flats and salt marshes and these can be viewed at close quarters from one of many hides strategically located along the reserve.
