Guestbook comments from the owner

"An amazing couple of days, wish we could have stayed longer. Fab, fab Barn. Thank you to our wonderful hosts."



"Thank you Caroline, Big Barn is amazing and so well equipped, you have thought of everything! We have had a wonderful time here, family & friends. We did ‘play’ come dine with me and didn’t feel the need to go out! (Apart from our 3 ½ hour walk!) A New Year not to forget, we hope to return again one day!"



"On behalf of all of us, thank you so much. We had an amazing time, riotous partying, bracing walks, games of ping pong/ table tennis, relaxing in the enormous baths… A fabulous way to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. A truly stunning place. If you ever get tired of farming, you have an interior design career to fall back on. A million thanks Caroline."

Location

From the Owner

I bought Larcombe Farm in 2004, having grown up on a Devon family farm I was missing the lifestyle! Arriving at Larcombe for the first time I knew that I had come home. Larcombe is a rare and magical place, it was a big project, and happily it turned into a labour of love. Making the Farm House inhabitable was the first challenge, embarking on the barn conversion in 2005 was even more daunting! Big Barn evolved, being converted from Larcombe’s giant threshing barn, by the end of 2007 Big Barn was ready for guests. Big Barn has subsequently appeared in a number of publications including Homes and Garden Magazine and also features in the pages of design and coffee table books.

Facilities

From the Owner

Big Barn is situated in the stunning South Hams countryside, ‘an area of outstanding natural beauty’ and is very close to local award winning beaches. Sitting within its own private grounds, Big Barn benefits from Larcombe Farm’s green pastures, offering peace and tranquillity and fun. Close to the towns of Dartmouth, Totnes, Kingsbridge and Salcombe, and within just 1.5 miles of the rural villages of Blackawton and East Allington which have 3 wonderful pubs and a small village shop between them. Big Barn is unquestionably a very special place to stay and I hope you love it as much as I do.
