The Byre at Bulmoor Farmhouse is tucked away in an exceptionally tranquil part of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by wooded hills, country lanes and abundant wildlife, yet only a short drive to the Dorset and East Devon UNESCO World Heritage Coast. The popular seaside town of Lyme Regis, the charming fishing village of Beer and picturesque Branscombe are all within 15 minutes. The River Cottage Canteen, of worldwide TV fame, is 10 minutes away while their Park Farm HQ is a close neighbour. A 30-minute drive will take you to the elegant Regency resort of Sidmouth.
The Byre is in the grounds of Bulmoor Farmhouse, which dates from 1797 and is listed by English Heritage as a building of “Special Architectural and Historical Importance”. The present owners, using traditional skills and materials, have painstakingly restored both buildings, and the ancient cider apple orchard.
In the Byre, the generous dimensions of the former milking parlour, cowshed, large stable doors, hopper windows and high vaulted ceilings have all been retained, creating the quirky spaciousness that is the dominant feature of the accommodation. Its attractions are year round, but at their very best in April to May when the woods and hedgerows are awash with wild flowers and the orchards are in full bloom - The perfect hideaway for a coast and country holiday, 4-star rated by Visit England.
