The Barn


A picturesque 1 bedroom thatched barn conversion with views of the stunning Devonshire landscape everywhere you look, The Barn puts the haven in hideaway, and does it in style. In the charming village of Cotleigh, The Barn is  surrounded by endless beautiful countryside, yet minutes away from the lively market town of Honiton.


Having been stripped to its bare bones, this unique thatched rental cottage has been rebuilt across 1 floor to the Beachspoke standard and fitted with all the modern amenities needed to get off the grid. The result is a charming countryside abode with all the perks of a city apartment. The Barn has a bathroom, living area and kitchen which is all open plan with a dividing semi-wall adjoining the 2 rooms.

Views of the rolling Blackdown hills can not just be enjoyed from the vintage roll top bath, but from almost anywhere you stand. The open plan kitchen is yours to create lazy feasts with a Bosch touchscreen oven. and after a day’s walking, you can relax in the living room with a movie on the smart TV with the Amazon Fire TV Stick or stream your own music via the Bluetooth speakers.

With tearooms, farm shops and some idyllic pubs nearby, The Barn is a unique private space for 2 who want to explore the wonders of Devon or simply enjoy the calm of the countryside without having to compromise on living standards.

Small – medium dogs are welcome in The Barn however they are not allowed on any of the furniture. There is an additional charge of £50 per dog per stay. Please note that The Barn shares the same grounds as the main house but has its own private entrance. For stays longer than a week please do contact the Beachspoke office.

Cotleigh is a tiny village situated at the foot of the Blackdown Hills in the heart of the unspoilt and partly wooded farmland of East Devon. It is about 3 miles to the east of the market town of Honiton.

The village includes a church, village hall, pretty houses, with small and large farm holdings. There are many pubs all within a few miles radius, but not one in Cotleigh itself.

A few miles further south is the spectacular East Devon coastline, designated a world heritage site, known as the Jurassic Coast.

An exploration around the village and the local public footpaths is recommended.
