Guestbook comments from the owner

We wound our way up the country lanes to be greeted by the spectacular sight of The Barn, a truly wonderful site. Then received a very warm welcome from Sue and Roger. The entire place is wonderful. The best we have had in the four years we have done this. The pool is great, as is the games room. All of the facilities are well thought out.



WOW - what a place! We have been doing this for nearly 14 years and we have never stayed in such an amazing place. The Barn is truly special and it should be 5 star not 4! Thank you so much Sue and Roger for being fantastic hosts. The boys loved it! The Cleave Inn in Lustleigh is wonderful. We will be back!



We have had a glorious week in The Barn with something for everyone - views, walks, swimming, games and numerous local attractions. Thank you, Sue and Roger.

Truly amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with every intention of exploring Devon but within 24 hours we knew there was no way we were going to leave the Barn. 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.

Superb accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit in a year to this wonderful Barn. Sue and Roger are great hosts and very friendly. The property is well maintained and very clean. The swimming pool has to be seen to be believed. The changing room facilities are excellent too and the games room is a great addition. Teenagers won't be bored here! The grounds are very well maintained and there is a lovely patio area. The views are superb and the location very peaceful. Would and have already recommended to friends and family. We will be back.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic venue. Photos do not do this justice as the pool and building are amazing. Had a great long weekend for a 50th party and would certainly return to the little bit of peace with all the luxury you need .

Such an amazing holiday we were very sad to leave

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful holiday home set in almost untouched stunning surroundings, fantastic views and lovely garden.

This has by far been the best family holiday we have had and to have such great hosts where nothing is too much trouble really made it a home away from home.

The pictures really don't do this place justice, the apartment is huge and very well appointed with everything you would ever need, and the pool is simply amazing.

Thanks again Sue & Roger we hope to be seeing you again soon,

Andy, Mandy & Kids
