Bolthole, haven, hideaway, escape. Lilcott Barn, part of the Beachspoke complex, is all these things. Cute as a button on the edge of Devon’s Honiton, this is a place for lovers to reignite the magic that first brought you together. Get ready for stone-wall rural on the outside, city-chic on the inside.
The top-level one-bedroomed Barn sits like a Bond villain’s lair under its unassuming bucolic thatch, in the shadow of the Blackdown hills. Over here is a Bosch touchscreen oven and a Nespresso machine, over there a rainfall shower and vintage freestanding bath.
As dusk falls over the rolling hills, snap out the light and head to the large superking bedroom. There’s a smart TV there, too. Just add chocolates. Before turning in, relax in the rainfall shower, then drift off to the sound of silence. Wake to unending views and coffee and croissants on the terrace.
