The high vaulted ceiling in the kitchen/lounge area gave a light and spacious feel to the accommodation. Everything was clean and well maintained, beds comfy and shower really good too. Wendy couldn't have been more helpful. It's easy to switch off with so many lovely Dartmoor walks on our doorstep - again Wendy recommended some excellent ones nearby, along with dog-friendly gasto-pubs. Riverford Organics cafe and farm shop (called Ben's) are only a couple of minutes drive away so perfect for stocking up on quality provisions. The close proximity to the A38 didn't trouble me at all - the birdsong drowned out much of the road noise! The wifi was a bit hit and miss though so I needed to get a dongle to aid my research and writing, so I'd recommend that if you need reliable connection. Other than that I can highly recommend Mick Churn Cottage and would be glad to return some day soon.

Nicely furnished barn with lots of seating areas, big enough to allow the kids space to play pool or other games whilst the grown ups can still have their own space too. The swing chair in the window is a wonderful thing and there was even some dress up clothes for the children that were great fun. There was table tennis outside that we weren't expecting either. We enjoyed the barn so much that although we had many fun days out, the kids were always very keen to get back to the barn to carry on playing. The bedrooms were very nicely decorated and the most comfortable beds we have come across in 6 years of renting holiday cottages. Many thanks to Wendy and Graham for their beautiful barn and help with everything.
