A luxury studio for 2 that sits on a hillside surrounded by fields and woodland. A fabulously romantic hideaway near Exeter in the countryside not far from the coast.
The Artist’s Studio sits is located in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the end of a rural lane.
Panoramic windows and the south facing balcony give uninterrupted views across the beautiful valley.
The private lower terrace is a sheltered sun trap that also looks out over the lawn to the valley below, the perfect place to relax and unwind.
An abundance of wildlife including deer and badger frequent the garden and fields below, and the local area is excellent for bird watching and walking.
Originally a farm building, the property was converted into an artist’s studio twenty three years ago. In 2015, the property was extensively refurbished by interior designer Susie Stocks to create stunning and luxurious accommodation for two.
With central heating and a wood burning stove, this relaxing cosy retreat can be enjoyed year round.
The local village of Wilmington is 2 miles away and has a popular pub and hotel, both serving meals.
This is a very special place you’ve created - incredibly peaceful and well appointed. Really appreciated the thoughtful touches - fresh flowers, the hamper & the AMAZING brownies. We’ll be back.

Many thanks for the warm welcome, the brownies and the flowers! We especially appreciated the superb shower and the comfortable bed - and of course the view! A wonderful, restful home from home.

The market town of Axminster is a 15 minute drive. Honiton, once famous for lace making, is a Georgian market town 15 minutes drive away. It holds a twice weekly street market and has many antique centres, two auction houses, independent shops and two art galleries including the wonderful Hybrid art gallery.
A good gastro restaurant to visit is The Holt, which is Otter Brewery’s own bar and restaurant. Classes in smoking, curing, and bread making are held at the restaurant.
Enjoy a delicious meal at the River Cottage Canteen in Axminster or spend the day at River Cottage Headquarters, host to cookery courses and special events throughout the year. The seaside villages of Branscombe and Beer are a pretty 20 minute drive away.
