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

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.

Perfect stayStayed July 2019

Having just returned from a few days away in Devon and specifically at Devon Country Barns, I can honestly say how happy the stay has made us. After a difficult few months, time away from home was so welcomed and to do it in such a setting was truly wonderful. We stayed in Apple House which is beautiful, perfectly placed to overlook the lovely countryside all around the Barns especially from the comfort of the hot tub! We were incredibly lucky to experience the best weather of 2018 so far and we took full advantage to both explore the magnificent surroundings and also enjoy the cottage to the full. Both Ute and Richard are as welcoming hosts as you can get and their hospitality is second to none. We can’t wait for our next visit!

A gem of a place!Stayed April 2018

Just spent half term at Apple House, the barn has everything you need and everything is of an exceptionally high standard. Great location for exploring Devon and Cornwall, fantastic for the “hunter-gatherer” lots of farm shops and lovely towns near by. Picturesque country side literally on your doorstep, and after a hard day you can relax in your own private hot tub!! The owners have a vast amount of knowledge on the area and activities and nothing is too much trouble, would recommend to anyone seeking that perfect location in this part of the country.

This place is a little gem – not sure where to start.
The owners are lovely, the grounds are amazing and plentiful, the views are magnificent and the cottages are just excellent.
We stayed in Apple House over a long weekend. The house was spotless on arrival – we had scones, clotted cream and jam waiting for us on our arrival. The barn was extremely cosy, and the wood burning fire made it even more so.
Hot tub on the patio was v easy to use, and made the weekend away that bit better.
Location is also brilliant – not far from Dartmoor and in reasonable driving distance of some of Cornwall’s best beaches.
