Barley House (3729)

1.5 miles SE of Colyton | Sleeps 6 + cot* | Price per week £609 - £1401

This comfortable family home is perfect for a tranquil holiday. Set in the hamlet of Stedcombe Vale within the east Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, semi-detached Barley House was originally part of a barn and retains impressive wooden beams in the kitchen. Delightful south-facing landscaped gardens invite you to while away the day with a good book or dine al fresco. A magnificent walnut tree and red oak either side of the driveway welcome you to the house and once inside there is plenty of space for all the family, the large kitchen/dining-room is perfect for long lazy meals together; three bedrooms and two bathrooms make this an ideal holiday base, close to the Jurassic Coast.

Barley House is just one and a half miles from the beach at Seaton, part of the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast, and the pretty village of Colyton. Close to the Devon/Dorset border, head west and you come to Sidmouth a famous Regency seaside town. If you're feeling energetic, take the coast path towards Branscombe and marvel at this spectacular coastline. Head east over the border into Dorset and visit Lyme Regis, with its iconic Cobb, fishing boats, restaurants, pubs and sandy beach; you may even be lucky enough to find a fossil on Monmouth beach. The rolling green east Devon countryside murmurs relaxation and there are many farm shops and market towns to lazily explore before returning to your holiday home.
