Olde Barn Gardens sleeps up to six guests and is conveniently positioned between Dawlish and Starcross in South Devon, just a two minute drive from the beach. Celebrated for its wonderful flower and hanging basket displays, vibrant in colour during the warmer months and also the autumn, Olde Barn Gardens provides a charming retreat at any time of the year.
Dawlish Warren is a beautiful beach where a Wild Bird Sanctuary borders the long expanse of golden sands and dunes which lead out to the mouth of the river Exe Estuary. The beach has been awarded Blue Flag status and is popular with families looking for seaside fun.
Formerly a small fishing port, the seaside town of Dawlish is just five minutes away from Olde Barn Gardens and offers shops, restaurants, pubs and an eighteen hole golf course. A further five minute drive along the coast takes you to the lovely beaches of Shaldon and Teignmouth (which also has a playground for young families). Torquay, Brixham and Paignton, fondly known as the English Riviera, is also within a thirty minute drive.
For those who enjoy outdoor activities, Dawlish is fortunate enough to have a riverside cycle path which passes the scenic Powderham Castle, along the estuary to Exeter where you are guaranteed a great day shopping! Dartmoor is also within easy reach (forty minutes away) and provides endless walking opportunities. Alternatively, take a leisurely short Ferry trip to Exmouth.
