Shires is a converted wagon shed tucked away in the East Devon countryside, with snooze space for 12 plus 2 more at an extra charge per person. Much thought has gone into this large group holiday accommodation being access friendly, with an open plan ground floor that’s level throughout, removable hoists and a lift to the sun terrace. It’s well equipped for holidays with family and friends, or for corporate breaks, with 6 bedrooms (4 en suite), a spacious kitchen-diner, snug, cinema room, games room and spa hall with pool, hot tub and sauna.  

Explore the local area, with walks right on the doorstep around the lanes and through wide open fields. The coast is just 20 minutes away; Charmouth is good for rockpools and fossil hunting, Beer and Lyme Regis for fishing trips. Walk up over the cliffs on the South West Coast Path, visit the museum, Dinosaur Fossil Museum or Seaton Jurassic.  

There are attractive market towns to browse – Honiton and Taunton are within easy reach, or go to Exeter and discover the Underground Passages and the magnificent cathedral. Axminster is just a few miles away, home to River Cottage Canteen; just outside the town is the farm and cook school, and a very good farm shop stocked with delicious local delights. There are several excellent places to eat within a short drive from Shires – country pubs, restaurants, steak houses and an ice cream parlour that’s not to be missed.

Check availability and book Shires for a fantastic large group holiday for all ages - and don’t forget you can reserve it for two days before you confirm.
