This  beautiful traditional barn has been sensitively converted retaining dark wood beams and floors and exposed whitewashed stone walls. The furnishings are exquisite - the open plan living area has a couple of comfortable sofas around the electric woodburning stove creating a lovely cosy area. The traditional country kitchen is classically beautiful and functional with cream cupboards, Belfast sink, dark wood dresser and circular dining table and chairs. The exposed beams and period features continue on the first floor landing and into the two bedrooms. The master has a king size four poster bed draped in cream and raspberry toile de Jouy fabric. The second bedroom has twin beds with traditional classic blue and white check headboards and white bedding.

Hutchinghayes Barn is in Combe Raleigh, a delightful village with close to Honiton, the historic town famed for its lace with some good restaurants and antique shops. The area is a good option of activities too with golf clubs, walking routes and bridleways. Devon is famous for its fabulous beaches - Sidmouth and the Jurassic Coast is just a short drive away and bird shoots and fishing on the River Exe and Barle.

Racing enthusiasts can check out the schedule at Exeter Racecourse on Haldon Hill, while those looking for a little retail therapy should head into Exeter with its great cafe culture, shops and beautiful cathedral.

Honiton offers easy access to the A30 (for London, the South West and the national road network) as well as to the M5 motorway. Serviced by a train station too, Honiton can easily be reached from London Waterloo in 2 hours, 45 minutes. Nearby Taunton (17 miles) offers a London Paddington service that takes just 1 hour 45 minutes. The holiday cottage is also easily accessible for those arriving by domestic or international flight; with Exeter and Bristol Airports nearby.

We rented both the farm house and the barn at Hutchinghayes for a large family celebration. We could not have been happier. Both the properties were perfect in every detail and we all enjoyed the sun lounge in the main farm house as our party room. However, the most enjoyable aspect was the stunning garden. Although it was very chilly whilst we were there (early April), we were fortunate that it didn't rain so we spent so much time exploring the grounds, walking around the lakes, feeding the ducks and geese and the children were highly amused by the pot bellied pig. We had the most wonderful weekend and would not hesitate to recommend Hutchinghayes as the perfect place to catch up with family and friends and to enjoy the peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings. I would also add that, as a family group, we have rented many holiday properties but Hutchinghayes has slotted in to our number one slot. We will definitely be back. - Susanna Teall
