Recently completed grade II barn conversion - forming a spacious annexe to the original farmhouse. It is on a farm in E. Devon near the Jurassic coast and close to both Dorset and Somerset borders, so a convenient base for touring all 3 counties.

Stedet
This barn conversion (situated on a small farm in East Devon) has recently been completed and is now a self contained annexe to the original farmhouse which is believed to have been built in the 1700s. It is called 'Talala' which means 'peaceful'.
The upstairs bedroom has a comfortable king size bed, a built in cupboard with hanging space and shelves,and a dressing table and is carpeted throughout. A unique feature of the bedroom are the original exposed beams. The bedroom window looks out over the surrounding fields where deer are often seen in the early morning. Please note that the stairs leading to the bedroom are gated st the bottom but not the top but bedroom door can be closed .We can provide a chairbed in the bedroom for younger children and older children can use the sofabed downstairs. Fresh linen, a hair-dryer and alarm clock/radio are included.
The upstairs bathroom also has exposed beams and is simply decorated with mahogany and white cupboards, a large corner bath, with newly fitted shower and a heated towel rail . Toiletries and 2 large and 2 hand towels and a bathmat are provided.( changed weekly for longer stays)
The sitting room has seating for 6, slate flooring, a log fire burner and big flat screen TV with dvd player. There is a double sofa bed which can sleep 2 people.
There is a gated doorway leading through to the dining/kitchen area where there is a sink, fridge,freezer, newly installed hob and oven, dishwasher,microwave, toaster, kettle,washing machine, and iron and ironing board plus crockery and cutlery. Provisions for a continental breakfast are supplied as a free extra if wanted.The diningroom table can seat 4.

Gjestetilgang
Guests do have access to a private garden where they can relax and have a barbecue. .
We do have livestock and dogs on the farm so please make sure gates are kept closed at all times- particularly the ones leading to the road. We also have a big pond so for health and safety reasons, the pond, poultry area and fields are out of bounds. We are more than happy to show you around if you would like to see the animals. Should you wish to use the area around the pond, please speak to your host.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
Wifi is provided and does work but being in the country it is slow and at times the signal strength varies, so will struggle with large downloads.
We do have 2 friendly dogs and 1 ginger cat, so please be aware that if you leave the door open, the cat might wander in! Also please look out for them when you drive in as one of the dogs is deaf and won't hear your vehicle. We are on a farm and surrounded by other farms so there are times when there are farm and other road traffic noises. There are 2 farm shops 5 min away plus Tescos and other supermarkets nearby for buying supplies.
Please also have a look at our other barn conversion on the property - listed as 'Mwendafye', as the 2 cottages are very different. We also offer B&B accomodation in the farmhouse called 'Mwaiseni'.

Dalwood, Storbritannia

The property is situated between Honiton and Axminster, and close to the villages of Dalwood, Stockland, Kilmington and Wilmington - within easy reach from the A30. It thus offers a convenient base for exploring a range of activities and places of interest in the south west.
East Devon is famous for its Jurassic coast. Seaton, which is situated at the mouth of the River Axe(and is only 30 minutes away) also has a scenic golf course and a yacht club. (there are also other golf courses in the area at Monkton and Honiton) It is also famous for its tramway which runs through the Axe valley nature reserve to Colyton. There are other animal centers like Cricket St. Thomas Wildlife Park, Ferne Animal sanctuary and Otter Estuary Nature Reserve (which has a range of birdlife and free fishing)– not to mention places like E xmoor and Dartmoor, the Donkey Sanctuary, the marine nature reserve on Lundy Island and Paignton zoo. Lyme Regis is the ‘riviera’ of the south west, has many seaside shops and eating places and a sandy beach and offers historic walks along the coast and is only a 20 minute drive away. The village of Beer - an ancient fishing village (renowned for smuggling in ancient times) also offers some beautiful coastal walks.
The surrounding countryside is particularly scenic and tranquil and there are many lovely local country walks. There is a public footpath from the farm which goes down to the historic pub in Dalwood – ‘The Tucker’s Arms’ which was built in 13th century. ( it is a lovely 40 min walk during the day but not advisable at night ) A map of different walks is provided. Chard reservoir (said to be the birth place of powered flight) also offers a number of walks which are wheelchair friendly.
Both Honiton and Axminster have weekly markets with a variety of stalls. Honiton boasts many antique shops and is famous for it’s ice cream shop which is open in the spring and summer, and lace and pottery making. It also celebrates many traditional activities. Axminster is famous for its carpet making and is the home of the River Cottage Canteen. There are many pubs and other eating places such as the well known carvery outside Honiton or one of the many places for Devon cream teas. The area also provides many garden centres, (such as Otter in Ottery St. Mary – the home of Thackeray and Coleridge) and 3 good farm shops(one offering ’Pick your own’), and 2 cider breweries.
Places of interest – Durdle Door in the Dorset section of the Jurassic coast; the famous Eden project( only 2 hours away) Taunton,(the town was first settled in Saxon times – approx. 700AD) Dunster and Tiverton castles, Exeter cathedral. For something more energetic, there are a number of activities - like the ‘Landrover experience” and quad biking near Cullompton, Zorbing in Dorchester and water sports in Exmouth(and a sandy beach and model railway!) and centres offering child activities eg. Crealy adventure Park (said to be “a cross between Disneyland and MacDonald’s farm”, and Abbotsbury which provides a farm, gardens(which are lit up at Halloween and Christmas) and a Swanery, and Paintballing near Exeter. Then for those rainy days – there is the Fleet Air Museum and the Haynes Motor Museum in Yeovil and the historic Observatory in Sidmouth (also famous for it’s annual Folk Festival in July) and the Aquarium in Weymouth(URL HIDDEN)
Larger Shopping centers – Exeter, Yeovil and Taunton and the Trago center. (near Newton Abbot)

I am a 'country lass' - grew up on a farm in Africa so enjoy open spaces and the beautiful countryside of Devon. We have 2 sons, 2 dogs, and 1 cat. I try to make the cottages welcoming, comfortable and homely.

I live on the property but do work part time, so although I (and Rosie!) will do my best to be there to welcome you, and say goodbye - depending on your arrival/departure time, there might be some occasions when this is not possible, and an arrangement will then be made regarding keys. If you have any queries, please contact me - we will do our best to help.
