Surrounded by traditional farm and woodland, we've enjoyed living in peaceful tranquility at Coburns Barn for the past 24 years. As smallholders, we run a small flock of Jacob sheep and our visitors often enjoy feeding the ewes. Coburns Barn is home to Tiga - a young, friendly Border Collie who is restricted to the ground floor. We can easily accommodate 6 people in our 3 bedrooms, but we don't book more than one group at a time, so your group won't need to share a bathroom with another group.
Our place is: peace and quiet, close to sheep, horses and cows, Blackdown Hills (AONB) villages, tranquil rural public footpaths, fields and woods. There's plenty of fresh air and solitude, no passing traffic - over 400 metres from the nearest quiet countryside lane. The outlook is over our paddock and the ancient traditionally laid hedgerow field boundaries. Coburns Barn is good for couples, solo travellers and families.
Accès des voyageurs
It's important to note that the accommodation is not self-contained and guests will share our home, especially the kitchen and dining room. In a converted former dairy building we have a fully equipped antique full-size billiard table. Guests over the age of 18 are welcome to use the table, but we need to make a small charge to cover heating / lighting.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
Coburns Barn is our family home and so Julie and Steve will be able to welcome you and will be available throughout your stay. Guests are welcome to use our family kitchen to enjoy the free light breakfast between the hours of 8am to 10am. We ask that guests respect that the kitchen is not available outside of these hours.
Coburns Barn is located about a mile from the A303 trunk road. Exeter city centre is within 40 minutes. Bristol just over an hour's drive. Devon and Dorset's World Heritage Jurassic Coast within 40 minutes. Dartmoor less than an hour's drive.
