We booked this cottage for a weekend as part of a vacation in Devon and could not have asked for better. The hosts went above and beyond in making us feel welcome and the check in and out process was very convenient. The property was well equipped and was clean, spacious, and well decorated. We did not want to leave! Would certainly stay again.
Had a lovely stay in this converted barn for New Year. There were 5 of us for some of our stay and the barn is more than big enough. The beds were very very comfy, like sleeping on clouds. There is a very snug but well appointed kitchen, suitable for most everyday requirements. Tv and WiFi worked well, and there is a small selection of DVDs available for load in you wish, however as the countryside is so lovely, you dont want to be sat in front of the TV for long!
There is also a games room, and access to washing/drying facilites at a small cost.
The focus is very much eco friendly, with a log burner, plenty of wood (at no extra cost) and even two outside baths (in addition to the internal washing facilities!). We were brave enough to try these in late December and they were great.
There is a fantastic pub, the Ring of Bells only about a mile away where we went for New Years Eve. The overall quality of food we experienced in Devon wasnt the best but the Ring of Bells restored our faith, there is good food to be had in Devon!
Finally, the reason for the 4, not 5 stars is because of the heating system. Due to the Eco friendly nature, the primary heating is the wood fire, which is lovely in the evening, but less so when you wake in the morning to a cold barn. There are several oil plug in radiators but its a very big space to heat. Not a major issue but one to be aware of if staying during the colder months.
Overall, we had a great stay though. In the spring and summer I expect its stunning.
