Fantastic holiday home in a great location

5 of 5
We stayed at Horsebrook Barn over the Easter weekend and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The cottage is much bigger than we imagined from the photos online. There were 5 of us in total including our daughter and we were delighted with how spacious and well equipped Horsebrook Barn is. There was a log fire burning and a cream tea waiting for us when we arrived. The kitchen and living rooms are spacious and bright, with plenty of books and games. The kitchen is really well equipped. The cottage is about 10 minutes walk along the lane past the river to the village of Avonwick where there is a very nice welcoming pub. We found that Horsebrook Barn was a great base for a few days exploring the local area including a trip to the Cornish coast and a cycle ride along the Granite Way on Dartmoor. All in all highly recommended!

Excellent' A Little Gem!

I have stayed in many self catering properties throughout the UK but have never been as impressed as I was with The Hide. Julie, the owner, has put so much thought and detail into her guest's comfort. The apartment is so well equipped and everything that you would need is there and of the finest quality. Eggs and butter, tea, and coffee, milk and fresh bread were waiting for us.The apartment is stunning and so relaxing. I would happily have spent the entire week without crossing the door. I highly recommend the Hide for anyone looking for a quality apartment in a stunning location. Many thanks Julie. We will return!!
