It suited everyone from the toddlers who enjoyed the garden and could be safely installed in the lounge furthest away from the kitchen to the grandparents who could sleep downstairs without having to negotiate the stone steps. We enjoyed the garden with the noisy sheep on shearing day and the playful foals. A truly wonderful place.

We spent almost the entire the week there, either relaxing on the decking area (which is a sun trap!) or swimming in the pool (which was lovely and warm). The Barn is beautiful and designed to give you maximum peace and relaxation. It has everything you need and we will definitely be back. Many thanks to Sue and Roger for the warm welcome and hospitality.

The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need, plus there was a lovely home made cake waiting for us on arrival! There is a very good pub just 5 minutes walk away (The Rugglestone Inn) and the centre of the village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor is a 10 minute walk. The owners made us feel very welcome and gave us some good tips on where to eat and where to go walking. The garden of the cottage is very peaceful and private and the cottage itself has been finished to a very high standard. Highly recommended.
