About Great Ash Barn

Great Ash Barn gives families a proper taste of farm life. Located on the edge of a historic family farm near Copplestone in Mid Devon, the holiday home offers stunning countryside views and plenty of space to unwind. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it’s ideal for families, couples, or groups. The downstairs bedroom with an en-suite is great for grandparents or parents, while the kids can enjoy their own space upstairs. You’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, Smart TVs, a cosy wood burner, and a charming enclosed garden. Plus, there are local pubs and restaurants nearby for a sociable drink and delicious meal.

Great Ash Barn is in a fantastic area with loads to see and do. The nearest village, Copplestone, is 3.5 miles away and has a small farm shop and Central Stores. Morchard Bishop, 4.5 miles away, features a friendly village shop and the inviting London Inn pub. Sandford has a community-run shop and two popular village pubs four miles away. Footpaths from the barn lead to these villages, offering scenic walks right from your doorstep. For more shopping and dining options, head to Crediton, only 5 miles away, where you’ll find independent shops, a Tesco, and a Morrisons. If you fancy a bit of history, Okehampton is 17 miles away, with its famous castle ruins and access to Dartmoor's walking trails.

If you’re up for exploring further, Devon has loads to offer. Exeter, just 13 miles away, is an ancient city with plenty to see and do. Both the North and South Devon coasts are within reach, with beautiful beaches and charming coastal towns. North Devon is fantastic for surfing, while South Devon offers lovely beaches and towns to explore. Garden lovers will enjoy RHS Garden Rosemoor, about 35 minutes away, and several National Trust properties are nearby, like Castle Drogo, Knightshayes, and Killerton. Local farm shops around Crediton provide fresh produce for your self-catering needs. At Great Ash Barn, you can also enjoy farm life by feeding calves, piglets, and Pygmy goats or collecting fresh eggs from the chickens and ducks.

Great Ash Barn is a wonderful place for a family holiday in Devon. Whether you’re looking to relax away from your daily life or have an adventure, the barn and its surroundings offer plenty of opportunities for memorable experiences in the peaceful beauty of the Devon countryside.

Location (Devon)

Accommodation Comprises:

Great Ash Barn is on a family-owned beef and arable farm. Dogs are welcome, but please follow the country code, keeping them on a lead if you're in a field with cows and ensuring gates are closed.


  • The barn has been sympathetically extended to include a spacious open-plan living room and kitchen. Slate floors are warmed with underfloor heating, and you have ample seating on three sofas. Settle back with a film on the Smart TV and, in winter, light the woodburner for an extra cosy atmosphere in winter. A toybox will keep the kids happy while you relax.
  • A modern kitchen fits neatly into one end of the room. It's well-equipped for a self-catering family holiday, with a four-burner gas stove and a full-sized electric oven. There's also a dishwasher to avoid arguments over who dries up.
  • Enjoy family meals at the solid timber table with gorgeous views through French doors.
  • You know your kids are having fun when they're filthy dirty at the end of the day, especially on a farm! A washer/dryer is tucked away in a utility cupboard in the hallway.
  • Bedroom One is on the ground floor. It's furnished with a double bed, TV and storage. An ensuite has a shower, WC and hand basin.


  • Bedroom Two has a kingsized bed and its own Smart TV.
  • Bedroom Three features zip-and-link beds that are configured either as two 3ft-wide single beds or one super king-sized bed. Please let the owner know your preference when booking.
  • A shower room has a walk-in shower, WC and a hand basin.
