The Barn | A super stylish pet-friendly romantic retreat with its own crackling fireside and rolltop bath

We think this retreat is a real gem for a couple that want to relax in luxury. The Barn in Cotleigh feels like your own swish spa, with spacious rooms and a vintage bathroom, but there’s no risk of ice rubs and plunge pools here – instead you’ve got beautiful views of the Blackdown Hills from your windows and all the countryside to explore from your doorstep.

Your romantic retreat is hidden in Cotleigh, South Devon, a picture perfect village situated at the foot of the Blackdown Hills, surrounded by wooded farmland. It’s a great place to escape and unwind away from city life, and Cotleigh is under four hours from London and less than two from Bath. It’s near to the cute Devon town of Honiton and once you’re here you’re only a short jump away from the spectacular Jurassic Coast, a south coastal walking route famed for its rugged cliffs and sea views.

This little thatched haven is pretty stunning. Step inside The Barn and you’ll find a warm fireside waiting for you. The eco-friendly owners fuel this with ethanol, and it’s surrounded by comfy furniture and a Samsung TV and Amazon Fire Stick as well as wifi for cosy nights in, along with lots of natural wood and soft lighting. There are views of the hills through the windows, making a natural focal point of each room.

Step through and you’ll find the open plan kitchen, with its island for sophisticated breakfasts, along with your own Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother. There’s also a Bosch touchscreen oven, hob and extractor fan, and fridge, Zanussi washer and dryer, as well as a dishwasher. Here you’ll also find your own welcome hamper with essentials like eggs and bread, along with a bottle of Cremant to get your holiday started.

Head upstairs and you’ll reach The Barn’s master bedroom, with its large super king-size bed and Egyptian cotton sheets, smart TV, and en-suite rainfall shower with feature sink. Owners will leave you Beachspoke dressing gowns, and there are Bamford bath and shower products on hand. The romantic bathroom also houses a standout vintage silver roll top bath tub and massive windows so you can make the most of your gorgeous countryside setting.

This is a dog-friendly romantic Devon cottage, and welcomes well-behaved small or medium size dogs for an additional £30, with dog bowls and biscuits provided. Keep your pooch out of the bedroom and off the furniture, but let them run wild in the countryside – they’ll have a great time.

The area surrounding The Barn includes some of the most scenic footpaths in England. Strap on your walking boots and head to the tea-rooms, farm stalls and country pubs for starters. And then hop in the car and you’ve got all the rest of Devon for you to explore. On the way back from a day out, The Barn’s owners suggest you check out chic hotel The Pig for afternoon tea.
