We have just returned from a wonderful and relaxing stay at Orchard Barn. On arrival into the cosy barn, we were greeted by a sumptuous homemade cake and treats for our dog Daisy. During our stay, we enjoyed some lovely walks and explored the local area. Unwinding in the hot tub throughout our stay was a real luxury, not forgetting the nights curled up on the sofa in front of the log burner. Sylvia and Kristian were such wonderful hosts, thank you for having us. We hope to visit again soon.

Mini Break in DevonStayed December 2019

This is a such wonderful find. It was our second visit to Apple House to see in the new year and it did not disappoint. On arrival, the lovely Christmas tree, tea lights twinkling, home made cake, fresh eggs, not to mention a lovely bottle of Champagne was just the welcome we needed. The house is cosy, warm, spotless and the hot tub is a lovely luxury. Cuddling up around the wood burner with logs from the barn was a lovely way to relax. Sylvia was a wonderful host, nice to have a chat with her and Christian but she also left us to enjoy our family few days together. This is a good base to explore the local area but also to chill, unwind from the bustle of life. We love it and will definitely be back!

A wonderful way to bring in the new yearStayed January 2020

We stayed 5 nights in Meadow Barn which was perfect from start to finish! Sylvia and her family are awesome, the kids all help out with looking after the barns too! We relaxed, we explored & we were so well looked after! Our dogs enjoyed it too! We very rarely return to a property but this will definitely be a ‘go to’ place for us!

Spot on!Stayed January 2020

This place was so lovely and the perfect getaway, despite storm ciara doing her best to make it awful! Sylvia was an amazing host and was so accommodating! Lovely touches in the barn like homemade cake and fresh eggs and flowers. Will definitely go back!

A lovely relaxing breakStayed February 2020

Sylvia was very welcoming from start to the end of stay. Booking the barn was very easy and the process was quick too. On arrival, we were very pleased with the appearance of the barn. Took a night to get use to being downstairs and the living room and kitchen was upstairs. Set up within the barn was beautiful and had excellent views from all windows. Kitchen area was well equipped from baking utensils to wine glasses for the use in the hot tub. Barn was not cold even though Storm Dennis hit us hard. Shame the weather waste bad to use the outdoor facilities. Location of the barns was near to the A30 and good driving distance to nearby towns. For local food shopping, a trip to Strawberry Fields Farm Shop is a must. We will be definitely returning back to the barns even if its two of us using Tractor barn. Thank you Sylvia for your hospitality.

Fantastic – 50th Birthday GatheringStayed March 2020

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.

FabulousStayed September 2019

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.

Relaxing BreakStayed September 2019

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.

Peaceful ChristmasStayed December 2019

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.
