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.

After lockdown we were so happy to come to Hutchinghayes. It’s such a wonderful and beautiful place, a home away from home. We had an amazing week.

Previous Customer,

Our stay has been wonderful! The whole place is amazing. We hope to return soon.

Previous Customer,

We had a really lovely stay at Hutchinghayes. Beautiful autumn colours reflected in the lakes, fantastic walks around the grounds and wider afield. Young, old, two or four footed, we all agreed we love this place and are sad to leave it’s cosy, welcoming arms.

Previous Customer,

We loved Hutchinghayes Barn, it was so cosy and loved the grounds.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for a wonderful time at Hutchinghayes, we would love to come back again.

Previous Customer,

A visit to this place had been high priority ever since I laid eyes on it on the internet. Naturally we had steeled ourselves for disappointment as we approached our dream holiday, but it was as glorious and comfortable as we could ever have hoped for. Hutchinghayes is such a naturally beautiful and serene place.

Previous Customer,

I am going to miss sitting by the lake house and writing, and everything else has been marvellous too.

Previous Customer,

The property and the setting are outstanding. The whole process was straightforward and the location absolutely amazing!

Mrs Paula S,

Thank you for letting us share your amazing grounds... we saw buzzards, bats, hawks, glow worms, lots of fish and loved the pigs, Treacle and Marmalade.

Previous Customer,

We had a wonderful holiday in beautiful Devon and living in the Barn has been like being on a movie set. Thank you for sharing your amazing place with us.

Previous Customer,

A UK and US family gathering. EVEN better than the brochure...

Elizabeth I,

I had a really nice time playing in the garden with my puppy Kitty and my new friend from the big house! Thank you Liz
