This attractive Grade II Listed detached barn conversion close to the stunning east Devon Jurassic Coast comes with complementary guest membership at the fabulous Woodbury Park Country Club. Enjoy free use of the 20 metre indoor pool (children welcome), jacuzzi, sauna, gym and tennis court – open seven days a week and just a five minute drive away – until 31st December 2017. Situated in the hamlet of Yettington, close to the picturesque village of East Budleigh and only a short drive from the beach at Budleigh Salterton, Sandy Cross Barn is an exceptional four bedroom home-from-home – extremely well-equipped, spacious and comfortable inside, and with a large sunny patio, fully enclosed very private garden and a gated driveway for parking.
The ground floor is bright and cheerful and has the flexibility of a kitchen/breakfast-room, an open plan living/dining-room overlooking the garden and with direct access onto the patio and wood-burner for extra warmth and atmosphere out-of-season (a fire guard is provided), a utility-room and a downstairs shower-room. Upstairs there are four beautifully presented bedrooms. The master bedroom is wonderfully spacious and has an en suite shower-room. Both this and the second double bedroom have wall to wall cupboards offering a fantastic amount of storage space. One of the two single bedrooms features floor to ceiling windows overlooking the garden. If you can tear yourselves away from this most relaxing of holiday homes, not only have you got the unspoilt pebble beach at Budleigh Salterton – a real family favourite that is never too crowded, but courtesy of the Owner you also have access to free leisure facilities at Woodbury Park. Woodbury Park is child friendly and has a restaurant, beauty spa, hairdressing salon and golf, all at cost. Between Yettington and Woodbury lies the wide open space of Woodbury Common – acres of heath and woodland to explore on foot or on mountain bikes if you bring them. The views from here are amazing and stretch from the top of the Exe Valley along the Jurassic Coast to the east. Exploring along the coast offers you wide sandy beaches at Exmouth, the Regency town of Sidmouth and the historic fishing villages of Branscombe and Beer. Beyond that but a very easy drive away is Lyme Regis with its famous harbour wall – The Cobb. Head towards the Roman City of Exeter and you will find the delightful riverside town of Topsham with gorgeous shops, cafes and restaurants – as well as a ferry across the Exe to the lovely walks alongside the Exeter Canal – ending at the much loved Turf Hotel for a lunch with a view! On the way back to Sandy Cross Barn you will have to call in at Darts Farm – voted the UK's best farm shop and packed with treats to take home for a real feast to celebrate your holiday.
