This stunning dog friendly Axminster self catering accommodation situated just outside the village of Membury in East Devon, offers guests the chance of a modern break with luxury features for couples, families or friends to enjoy.

The contemporary style kitchen comes with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Despite the open-plan living area offering a TV for evening entertainment, more often than not, you’ll find yourself looking out at the impressive views over the peaceful Yarty Valley. Plenty of comfortable seating in the living area and dining area create a sociable space for guests.

Both of the bedrooms provided are beautifully fitted out, with luxury king-sized beds; one of which can be split into two singles to create the ideal escape for a family of four or two couples. Two spacious ensuites are served by the bedrooms, both with a separate shower and luxury free-standing bathtub and his and hers sink.

Castlebury Barn is a newly built property with diverse features; the wood burner can be lit during the colder months and the bi-folding doors open out onto the private patio during summer, bringing the outdoors in on a hot day. A charming seating area leads out to the patio from the glass doors in one of the bedrooms.

We had a wonderful stay in Devon

"We had a wonderful stay in Devon, the hosts were most generous with their welcome gifts. The barn was so cosy, beautifully furnished and everything we could possibly need was provided. The woodfire and hot tub were such a treat! We booked through Eden Retreats and it was quick, easy and a straightforward process."

We stayed at Castlebury Barn

"We stayed at Castlebury Barn. The building was recently converted and is extremely well furnished. The owners live next door but leave you to your stay but are there if you need something. There is a welcome package of local produce that is well done and a nice finishing touch. The views across the valley from the wood-fired hot tub are outstanding! Loved the place."

Booking experience

"We came across Eden Retreats whilst trying to find a holiday home as everyone seems to be holidaying in England this year we have found it very difficult for a family of 10 during school holidays. I messaged Eden Retreats and the came up with the option of 2 properties next to each other. I spoke to them via online chat and they were very helpful. We followed up the next day with a telephone call which was very efficient and I booked our accommodation online. I hope the holiday is as smooth as the service we have experienced so far. A very efficient company so far. I would highly recommend as the properties do all look very nice. We are very much looking forward to our holiday."
