360 Degree Virtual Tour of Devon Country Barns
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cow Barn. The cottage is very cosy and comfortable, well equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. Lovely welcome packages for both us humans and our dog. We all appreciated the fabulous outdoor space, all enclosed and very dog friendly. Like a home from home – only more luxurious, making our holiday all the more special and very relaxing. We were sad to leave. Big thank you to Sylvia who was so friendly and welcoming. We highly recommend and would love to return.
Devon Country Barns are fantastic, this is our 3rd visit and certainly won’t be our last. The place is so peaceful, it is the perfect venue for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The big bonus for us, apart from the fabulous hot tub, is that our dogs are welcome, we have 4 and finding somewhere as lovely as this that welcomes more than 1 is very rare. The barns are all really well equipped too and the welcome bottle of wine, eggs (fresh from the hens and ducks on site) and flowers are lovely little added extras (we also had ice and a lemon waiting for us because I’d mentioned we would need a gin and tonic by the time we got there (6.5hr journey for us, but well worth it!!), how nice is that! Already looking forward to our next visit.
We were truly welcomed by Sylvia and Kristian!!
Orchard Barn was beautifully warm and comfortable. We loved the homemade cake, eggs, teas, coffee and a bottle of champagne.
A lovely touch to find a wrapped present on the doorstep on Christmas morning.
Our dogs enjoyed exploring and playing on the fields around the barns and swimming/ retrieving from the little river and they settled really well.
Absolutely spotless and so well equipped.
Will be hoping to visit again soon.
The barn is extremely well presented and immaculate. It is equipped with everything you need and there is so much attention to detail including being decorated for Christmas which added to the whole experience. After a stressful week, it was everything we needed and more. Sylvia was very welcoming and is an excellent hostess. The cake on arrival was absolutely divine and it was the most perfect getaway. I could not fault anything.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
Well yet again we have had a wonderful stay in Apple House. We relaxed as soon as we turned the key ! Devon Country Barns are situated in a lovely location with wonderful walks only a short car journey away. Sylvia & Kristian have taken over from Richard & Ute seamlessly, upholding their very high standards, which is very much appreciated when only away for a short break. We will be booking again for next year & if possible will try to get a sneaky quick break in later this year
Fabulous stay my husband and I and our dog Bayley had a wonderful time. Cottage was perfect and hot tub fab.
Lovely family, would definitely recommend if wanting peace and quiet in lovely surroundings. Nothing to much trouble.
Would definitely return.
