Stunning, contemporary cottage for family and friends near the Jurassic Coast in East Devon

The location and the views – looking across the rolling Blackdown Hills in East Devon – deserve something special, and stunning Castlebury Barn delivers on every count. As a luxury base for a family of four or two couples, it's got the light and space for a hugely relaxing break – forget 'cottage' and 'barn' and instead think contemporary, one-floor living with all the bells and whistles, from stylish wood-burner to wood-fired outdoor hot tub.

There's an open-plan living area with huge picture windows and spacious, stone terracing outside that make the most of the big-sky views. The kitchen is beautifully appointed – showroom spick and span – with everything you need for family meals or friends-round-a-table dinners, and there's plenty of space for coats, boots, toys and dogs. A downstairs washroom and outside dog-shower make it very dog-friendly and child-friendly.

The two bedrooms are lovely and light, and both are en-suite with walk-in shower, free-standing bathtub and his-and-hers sinks. One room has a king-sized double, while the super-king-sized other can be split down into two single beds. There's a sophisticated style and decor throughout – again, far more boutique hotel than country cottage in character. If you're the parents, or the first couple to arrive, you're probably going to bag the bedroom that opens on to its own private patio, which is a nice place for a quiet breakfast before everyone else gets up. Furnishings and facilities are just as high-end outside as in, where there's an enclosed patio and lawn garden, handsome hardwood furniture, charcoal barbecue and firepit – and of course the hot tub, where if you don't break out the fizz, you're not really entering into the spirit of things.

As for that gorgeous location, you're only twenty minutes in the car from Lyme Regis and the wonderful beaches of the Jurassic Coast, or half an hour from the fishing villages of Branscombe and Beer. There are excellent country pubs nearby, the nearest farm shops are three miles away for great local produce and barbecue provisions, and there are more shops and restaurants in the charming market town of Axminster, four miles from the barn.
