Warren Hayloft is just past Cockwood harbour, on the Exe estuary. This beautiful property is one of two converted barns which is approached by wooden steps and has the living-area on the ground floor with the bedrooms below.
Steps lead up to the sitting-area, with a ‘living-flame’ fire, dining-area, and kitchen on the far side. The owners, who live elsewhere on the farm, have used exposed bleached beams and a soft pastel decor to reflect their proximity to the sea and long beach at Dawlish Warren.
Downstairs are two bedrooms and the bathroom (accessed only through the main bedroom). Outside the front door is a little wooden deck with a table and chairs and views over surrounding gardens and 50 acres of grazing land and the Exe estuary.
The area is known as the Amber Coast and there are some great walks from the farm along the Exe estuary. There is direct access from the farm to the Exe Estuary Cycle Trail, which is perfect for cyclists and walkers alike, and in the summer there is a ferry which crosses to Exmouth from Starcross.
Open plan living-room with kitchen and dining areas. TV, DVD player and 'living-flame' electric fire. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge and dishwasher
