We have just spent a wonderful half-term week at Tractor Barn. We loved the place – and Missy the dog enjoyed the freedom of the fields and the early morning swim in the river. Richard and Ute are wonderful hosts and have created a lovely country holiday experience. The quality of the accommodation can’t be faulted and there are nice little touches that make the barn a ‘home from home’. We enjoyed exploring this area of Devon/Cornwall and took in a number of National Trust attractions (Lydford Gorge was amazing), some horse riding across the moor, and some good local pubs. A lovely break and huge smiles all round.
Just returned from a 4 night new year break in Tractor Barn and had a fabulous time. The barn is one of the most comfortable places we’ve stayed in…beautifully renovated and really high spec. The owners, Richard and Ute, seem to have thought of everything. Even when the weather outside was really frosty, the barn was amazingly warm and cosy with a great log burner and underfloor heating throughout. We had a really warm welcome from the owners with fresh cake and wine and they saved the day by helping with our car trouble. Add that to the amazing hot tub (our son particularly enjoyed the lights!) and stunning views and we couldn’t have asked for more. Would definitely recommend the barns and hope to return at some point.
We spent the weekend in the gorgeous Tractor Barn, which is stylish and comfortable, and beautifully kitted out. 3 lovely bedrooms downstairs, with toasty underfloor heating and lovely bathrooms. The large and light open plan upstairs makes the most of the great views across the valley. The hot tub was a big hit with the girls – the weather was glorious but chilly, so sitting outside in the hot tub was a treat! Our dog Bou enjoyed walking down to the river for a paddle. The owners were very welcoming, and the welcome pack with delicious home made lemon drizzle cake (so good it lasted all of 2 minutes…) and own-label wine was a lovely touch. A great location for walkers – lots of beautiful walks within easy reach. Thank you Richard and Ute for a lovely weekend.
We have stayed at Devon Country Barns six times over the last three years and have always been met with a warm welcome.
The barns are beautiful. We’ve stayed in both Apple House and Tractor Barn and the finish in both is excellent. They’re well kitted out with all you need for your stay.
We can’t recommend the barns highly enough and will be back again year after year!
