The Old Barn is a wonderful property, located in a beautiful part of Devon, in an area of outstanding natural beauty.  This attractive stone cottage has been lovingly restored into a very appealing holiday home with lots of charm and character.  The conversion has kept the original beams and the owner has injected a cosy feel with the provision of a wood burner to create a fabulous holiday home with an additional private patio.   There is also plenty of seating in the courtyard along with access to the garden and pond area where you will find additional seating in a relaxing and peaceful setting.  The property is perfectly located near the quiet and picturesque village of Colyton. The position makes it an ideal holiday base for exploring both Devon, Dorset and the famous Jurassic Coast.  You will also find plenty of delightful local walks and bridleways on the doorstep too.  

The Old Barn is part of a group of properties all with their own individual character which can be booked as a group for big parties requiring a venue for a special celebration or event - please see TFFARM  and TFBULLTFCALFTFLOFT,  TFDAIR

The whole of the Jurassic Coast (including Seaton, Beer and Sidmouth), now a World Heritage site, is within easy reach and the lovely West Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis is only about 15 minutes away by car.  The popular Seaton Tramway, running along the Axe estuary, stops nearby offering a relaxing way to discover the local area.  For those that enjoy a culinary treat, celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage shop and restaurant is a short drive away in the East Devon market town of Axminster.

May 2018

my family and i enjoyed our stay, Found the cottage comfortable and clean.We will return as soon as possible

October 2017

A perfect stay in perfect surroundings with everything possible provided for. Just one thing, on looking at the reservations for next year, the cottages seem to be offered as one unit sleeping 19! We would only be interested in one or two of the cottages but there are no details of this on the website.

September 2017

Yes we really did enjoy our stay.

August 2017

As said above this cottage and its grounds were outstanding and we have been to many properties all over the UK and this has to be the best by far!

July 2017

Really beautiful gardens and very dog friendly. Quiet location with quaint village nearby.

July 2017

Jane was a wonderful host. She thought of everything with all the little touches in the accommodation. The setting was fantastic with lots of well designed garden area to use communally. Jane gave lots of wonderful recommendations for activities and trips so we were not at a loss for anything to do. We highly recommend the cottages and Jane really made our stay wondeful. Our biggest surprise was the price - for the quality of the accommodation/furnishings/etc we would expect to pay far more than we did and would have happily paid more!

July 2017

Loved it. Would highly recommend

June 2017

We loved our stay at The Old Barn (May 27 -June 3 2017). Decorated & equipped to a high standard, set in lovely peaceful surroundings & a lovely hostess in Jane the owner of all the properties at Tritchayne, we couldn't have asked for anything more. We will definitely be returning

April 2017

Most thoughtfully fitted out with wonderful attention to detail. Every kitchen utensil one could wish for and some very much appreciated food basics that meant we could come in and have a cup of tea and a snack without being in a panic to find the local shop. A very comfortable property. Thank you so much for a wonderful week!
