Swallows Barn is set in a delightful position on the outskirts of the village, along with four other impressive barn conversions forming what was once a thriving farmstead. The approach from the village is particularly attractive past St James' parish church and along a tree lined driveway leading to this select development.

Chawleigh itself is a small country village with church, post office/stores, public house and village hall. The neighbouring small town of Chulmleigh is about two miles and has a further range of everyday amenities including schooling to secondary level. The larger towns of Crediton and South Molton are also within easy reach by car, as is the county town of Exeter, about 20 miles to the south. There is a regular bus service to Exeter.

Chawleigh is set on the eastern side of the Taw Valley, an area renowned for its beautiful, unspoilt rolling countryside.
