Luccombe Barn is a superb detached two bedroom barn conversion situated on the outskirts of the pretty Devon village of Exminster. The Barn enjoys a wonderfully peaceful location and will appeal to couples and families wishing for a relaxing holiday in high quality accommodation. The local village has a selection of shops for everyday needs, three good pubs, a garage and post office as well as a 9 hole golf course and driving range.
The magnificent scenic Devon coastline with a great selection of child friendly beaches are only a short car journey away with, for example, the fabulous beaches at Dawlish only 8 miles away. The historic County town of City of Exeter with its excellent shopping centre and magnificent cathedral is only 5 miles away so visitors can make their holiday to Luccombe as quiet or as lively as they wish.
One unique feature of the barn is that from the very private decking and pretty rear garden area guests are just a fishing rod cast away from a number of coarse fishing lakes where anglers can arrange locally to fish the well stocked lakes for Carp, Tench, Roach etc.
This open plan kitchen/dining area is very light and with a rural style. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric range cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. The dining area has a wooden table with four chairs. Also, there is an utility room with a washer dryer, WC and basin.
There is a two two seater sofa and a three seater sofa with a coffee table. This area is heated by a log burner. In the corner, there is a TV with freeview and a CD player.
The master bedroom has a double bed with two bedside tables with bedside lamps. This room is heated by a radiator.
The second bedroom has carpeted floor and three single beds.
It has a shower cubicle, bath, wc and basin.
Private off road parking for two cars.
Furnished deck, private gardens to rear and side, view over coarse fishing lakes and countryside beyond.

we had a great stay and we will go again.Sarah Schlaefli - 18th February 2018
We had the opportunity to meet the owner of the cottage and she was very welcoming. The cottage really felt like a home which was lovely to come home to at the end of the long day trips we had. Would recommend this cottage to friends and will be going back there again. Hopefully without storm Brian. Lovely cottage that felt like home. Great central location for Lyme Regis, Dawlish, and the Moors. Felt safe and secure at night behind the locked gates. The rooms were a great size too and our 9 year old loved the fact the fishery, lakes, birds, pheseants, and sheep were on our door stop too. C Coggan - 27th October 2017
We have stayed here a number of times and found Betty and Bill to be excellent and very helpful hosts. The bonus is that the cottage is only a mile away from familyT Frith - 9th May 2017
Luccombe Barn provided us with a lovely, cosy home from home while our own home was being renovated. We had everything we needed and a warm welcome from Bill and Betty. Thank you for our stay. We are sure holiday makers would (and do) enjoy this lovely cottage.A previous customer - 2nd February 2017
Loved our Christmas stay, great for our two dogs as well. Our welcome gifts were greatly appreciated.A previous customer - 8th January 2017
This was the 3rd time we have stayed at Luccombe Barn and it has always been excellent. The house is well equipped, tidy and clean. The kitchen provides a wonderful space for the family to be sociable and the living room is cosy, especially when the woodburner is fired up. The owners are friendly and helpful and we would recommend this property to anyone looking for a base to explore south Devon.A previous customer - 6th January 2017
Great cottage in very convenient location. Very well equipped, spotlessly clean, spacious & lovely garden as well. Such a warm welcome from the owners. Very useful welcome pack on arrival. This is the second time we have stayed here and would highly recommend it.A previous customer - 13th October 2016
Excellent service from Holiday Homes & CottagesÂ - very efficient and helpful. IÂ would book Luccombe Barn again and recommend it - excellent accommodation and a friendly welcomr.Mr B - BathÂ - 1st October 2016
A very warm welcome on arrival. Very clean and spacious cottage. Great locations and views over the lake were fantatsic. We had a lovely stay here and the large garden was enjoyed by all. Would highly reccommend for families.A previous customer - 12th September 2016
Super cottage, excellent location an a very pretty garden to relax in. Lovely weather too! We only booked this cottage at the last minute but we were not disappointed.A previous customer - 30th August 2016
We really enjoyed our stay. The owners were very helpful and friendly the barn and garden was lovely with views over the lake. We couldn't have asked for more! NevilleA previous customer - 6th June 2016
Very interesting as there are many birds in the garden and n the lake. The only problem was that there was no book on birds so we bought one and have left it in the barn.A previous customer - 25th May 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Luccombe Barn. Our excellent hosts (in the adjacent barn conversion) Bill and Betty made sure that we had everything we needed. A spacious and well equipped kitchen diner and a very comfortable lounge provides an excellent base to relax. Together with a utility room and downstairs loo there is everything that you would possibly need. Upstairs is equally impressive with a large double bedroom and another large bedroom with 3 singles (and more floor space for another!) With a good sized bathroom with bath and separate shower you can't go wrong. Another plus is that there are windows on both sides of the kitchen and lounge so you get the benefit of morning and evening sun. The garden is great with lovely views over the lake. Not too far from the Exe Estuary cycle trail - a brilliant cycle (or walk) in alongside the canal to Exeter Quay and an amazing cycle track alongside the river and railway in the direction of Dawlish. Not to mention ferries at Topsham, Turf and Starcross ....enjoy!A previous customer - 5th May 2016
Excellent property and good location, only a short distance from our son in Exminster.The owners Bill and Betty could not have been more helpful even down to providing for my gluten free needs.A previous customer - 26th April 2016
Hoped it would be as nice as it looked in the photos, and it was - and some. Well equipped with a much appreciated welcome pack and a lovely greeting from the hosts. Wished we could have stayed longer.A previous customer - 17th March 2016
Excellent place: beautiful surroundings, a well-stocked kitchen and a comfortable cottage. Couldn't have asked for more. Well, perhaps a little less rain, but it was England in February...A previous customer - 12th March 2016
we enjoyed our short stay over the Christmas break at Luccombe Barns - the property was spotlessly clean and fully equipped with every mod con even down to a fully decorated Christmas Tree - Bill and Betty greeted us on our arrival and made us feel at home from the word go and are great ambassadors for the property and the company - would we stay again ?- a resounding YESA previous customer - 3rd January 2016
The barn is absolutely gorgeous very comfortable and in a perfect peaceful location,the owners Bill and Betty are such nice people very helpful.Would definately recommend.A previous customer - 8th October 2015
Very helpful,nice welcome pack,nice location,nicely kitted out with everything you need,well recommended,lovely garden,ideal to relax in with views of the lake at the bottom of the garden,well positioned for all local amenities.A previous customer - 29th September 2015
Wonderful welcome and continuing care by the Landlords Bill and Betty. Quite a large cottage so no shortage of space and of course the fishing lakes are on the other side of the fenced in garden - garden great for dogs. My only slight disappointment was that I would have liked to have seen more spent on the bedding as pillows and small duvet not conducive for goods night sleep, especially given how much it cost for the week. I know that the Landlords were having the shower fixed as the water pressure is low and it needs a water pump except we booked late so they couldn't do it but I'm sure it'll be done for the next guests. Overall pleasantly surprised and hope we'd be welcome back next time. 9/10.A previous customer - 8th September 2015
A beautiful cottage, excellent welcome and great location. Quiet and comfortable! Would definitely stay here again and recommend to everyone. Thanks .A previous customer - 14th July 2015
Having stayed in many holiday cottages over the last forty years this would rate as one of the best ! Could not have asked for more from the owners excellent serviceA previous customer - 25th May 2015
We stayed on a short break. The location is good for many places to visit. Not too far from beaches & coastal towns .Beautiful cottage, lovely welcome & can't wait to stay again.A previous customer - 18th April 2015
The intrepid city traveler's reward for for finding this treasure is the sheer beauty of its setting. The quiet peace of this hidden piece of Devon is a balm to the soul.A previous customer - 8th April 2015
Friendly people, good warm accommodation (wood burner). Relatively spacious. Country lanes a bit of a drag - you need to outfox the satnav which will go for the shortest but narrowest and muddiest roads to get you to Exeter.A previous customer - 9th March 2015
We chose Luccombe Barn not only for its proximity to Exeter (15 minute drive), but also because it's one of only a few holiday homes that accept dogs but aren't based on working farms. The barn is gorgeous - spacious, well laid out, and furnished with everything we needed for a short break. All the fittings are of a high standard and the place is kept spotlessly clean by the two wonderful caretakers, Bill and Betty, who live across the yard. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and while they're quite happy to keep out of your way they're also great company and have plenty of advice on things to see and do locally. If you're a dog owner or not, this is a great place to visit. It's worth driving for 5 minutes to get to the best local beauty spots as there's only a fishery right on the doorstep, but we honestly couldn't have hoped for a better base. We very much hope to be back, if there's still availability this year!A previous customer - 5th March 2015
Perfect place to retreat from the fast paced city life. Luccombe Barn is very spacious and has all the facilities you can think of (including a Nespresso coffee maker) The hosts are fantastic people who made us all feel very welcomed. We had a great time and will definitely visit again.A previous customer - 4th December 2014
Lucombe barn was a great place to stay, being nice and rural yet within easy travelling distance from Exeter. The cottage was surprisingly spacious, clean and tidy. Everything we needed was there!A previous customer - 4th November 2014
In a quite and pastoral location. Great hospitality, by wonderful people. Very clean and comfortable. Excelant for those who want to detach from the evry day race. Near a beutiful pond.A previous customer - 5th October 2014
The cottage we stayed in was beautiful & well equipped it was close to beaches & other points of interest.One of the main bonuses was the fishing lakes on the door step,we would definitely go back.The only downside was the great british weather [rubbish].A previous customer - 2nd September 2014
Our week at the Luccombe Barn was fantastic. The cottage was spotless, and every imaginable item for the kitchen and elsewhere was provided. Betty and Bill couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage was roomy and comfortable. At first we wondered where we were, but we soon realized that we were only five miles from the town of Exeter. Bill even drove to the car park to show us how to catch the bus. The view from the deck was tranquil and included a lovely garden and potted plants. It was a wonderful holiday and I would recommend it to anyone.A previous customer - 25th July 2014
The barn was everything we wanted and more it was real home from home. The situation of the barn was idyllic, lovely and peaceful. The hosts Betty and Bill were lovely and friendly and they made us feel at home. Perfect place for a get away from it all holiday. Would certainly recommend it to family and friends.A previous customer - 10th June 2014
This was our third stay at Luccombe Barn and, once again, we thoroughly enjoyed it. It has everything you could wish for for a relaxing holiday. Mr & Mrs Barlow are very friendly and always see that we have all we need. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the garden is ideal for children and pets. Highly recommended.A previous customer - 20th May 2014
This is a great cottage in a fantastic location with very friendly and accommodating owners. Very clean and very well equipped. This cottage has a lovely enclosed garden (great if you have dogs) and the owners start your stay off well with a few welcome essentials!A previous customer - 16th May 2014
Absolutely stunning, ideal place to spend a family weekend in sunny devon. The fishing lake acts as a beautiful backdrop to the garden, perhaps 1 mile too far away from the village, but nonetheless great value for money.A previous customer - 12th May 2014
The cottage was lovely and the welcome received on arrival was great. However the access to the cottage is difficult - single track roads with no passing places at timesA previous customer - 9th May 2014
Booking Service Excellent - very straightforward. Luucombe Barn amazing.Rev B - BuckleyÂ - 1st June 2013
Both your booking service and the holiday home were excellent, we would book this accomodation again in a heartbeat and would fully recommendÂ your service and this property to anyone who would be interested.Mr & Mrs A - GooleÂ - 30th June 2012
Very Clean. Excellent hospitality.Mr S - WolverhamptonÂ - 26th May 2012
Just spent two weeks at Luccombe Barn. Really attractive place in a beautiful setting in the Devonshire countryside. Caretakers live in the adjacent property and are wonderful hosts who went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The Barn is equipped with a flat-screen TV and a supply of books and games for kids and adults. All in all a great place to stay, that suited our needs perfectly. Comfortable, friendly, and full of charm.Mrs C - USAÂ - 31st March 2012
