The
Experience

Generous, hospitable Nick and Jo are passionate about their little corner of the world. They are realising their dream of running an eco-friendly, organic, self-sufficient smallholding and you get to share in the bounty: perhaps eggs from happy hens, home-buzzed honey, apples from the orchard, homemade scones and jam – whatever’s seasonal. And Sawday’s guests get free logs for the wood-burner! The Barn, Gallery, Music Room and their home all share a sun-dappled courtyard but are nicely private. The Barn and Gallery both sleep four and have an upside-down layout with smart open-plan living-dining areas upstairs: white-washed walls, plump cushions on red or white sofas, monochrome rugs on pine floors, local art on the walls. Slick modern kitchens have Gaggia coffee machines and all the mod cons. Downstairs to two bedrooms with white bedding on comfy wooden beds; bathrooms have chrome rainfall power showers. Kids will adore it here: collect eggs, feed the goats, spot newts in the pond, climb, romp and roll about in 30 verdant acres. Grown ups will love it too; or head out to walk, cycle, sail – boaty Salcombe is close.

Reviews

We had a fantastic stay in the Barn! Jo and Nick were incredibly welcoming, from providing delicious homemade cakes on arrival to letting our 2 year old son feed the chickens and Bertie goat (the highlight of his week). The Barn itself is beautiful and we spent many a happy evening in front of the woodburning stove. We thoroughly recommend Chantry Barn and will definitely be returning. Wonderful place for both families and couples! Thank you Jo and Nick for a wonderful holiday.

Ailsa, Edinburgh

We had a wonderful stay at the Barn over Easter. Nick and Jo are lovely hosts and their property is really beautiful and peaceful. The Barn is wonderfully re-decorated and had everything we could have asked for. We felt very welcome, it was a great place to be with kids (they loved feeding the goats and chicken) but we would definitely come back just as a couple as well. The nearby Beaches are all we had hoped for. Definitely happy to recommend and we will come back!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jo & Nick Woodman

  • Explore wild coves and teeming rockpools, charge around Blackdown Rings hill fort, climb some of Dartmoor's Torrs - all within easy reach
  • Kids are very warmly welcome and free to go wild - we have lawns for games, banks to roll down, and fields to roam (and we have plenty of games and books to borrow on rainy days).
  • Walk along the Avon estuary to Bantham beach, for a swim or a surf and stop for food in The Sloop before heading home.
  • A birdwatchers haven, with egrets, kingfishers and dippers in the Avon estuary, Efford Marsh and Andrews Wood nature reserves close by, and barn owls quartering our meadows (if you are lucky!)
  • Footpaths lead straight from our fields, or use Chantry as a base for stretches of the coast path - try Wonwell beach to Prawle Point.
  • Kingsbridge makes a great base for food gathering, with a farmers market, great fish shop, butchers and bakery and plenty of delis, cafes and restaurants. .
