It is set in a rural location but links up easily to the A30 and all the coastal towns. We walked our dog in the fields round the farm. We highly recommend this property for a Devon based holiday."
2021-06-06 Faye C, Leamington Spa "We had such a lovely time away here, thank you. Beautiful location, handy for local amenities and not too far from the beach but felt like we had peace and quiet and some time to ourselves. Place was perfect, really clean and the welcome pack was really lovely! Hosts were really friendly and communication couldn’t have been better, thank you very much!"

2020-10-25 A Coughlin, Sunningdale "Great welcome pack! Much more than we expected. The place is lovely and well-appointed. Wish we could have stayed longer. A really good place to stay. It is remote, and that suited us just fine. So you need to drive pretty much wherever you want to go. But don't let that put you off. A great space, clean, well appointed and with a very generous welcome pack - really way more than we had expected on arrival. Our hosts were very nice, they didn't get in our way, but made it v clear they were there if we needed them and made us feel most welcome. Thank you for a great stay. Really hope we can come back."
2020-10-23 B Walters, St Albans "Thank you for a much-needed break away! The barn was cosy, comfortable and in a lovely setting.
