About Cow Barn
The Cow Barn (4*Gold) has the largest garden of all the barns with steps up from the large patio to a grassy area and apple tree, ideal if you have a few dogs. The patio itself has a HotSprings Flair hot tub which comfortably seats six and enjoys the sun all afternoon and into the evening.
Up traditional stairs are two bedrooms, one double and one twin with a shared bathroom with bath and shower. Downstairs there is an entrance hallway, ideal for jackets and boots and drying a dog plus a WC. The main living/dining/kitchen are all in one room which has sandstone flooring and underfloor heating. The dining table comfortably seats four and the kitchen appliances include state of the art warming drawer and wall mounted coffee machine. The barn also has a woodburning stove.

We stayed in Cow Barn as a family of four plus one dog. We arrived later than expected, by which time Ute and Richard had unpacked our online grocery shopping and even taken delivery of a new mobile phone for my elder son. The barn was really well kitted out, with lots of extras you would normally expect to provide yourselves – for example, towels (for the bathroom and for the hot tub), toilet roll, hand soap, tea, coffee, even a good selection of DVDs for the DVD player. The setting for the barns is great, with surrounding fields all open for guests to explore. We particularly liked the large field with a picnic area adjacent to the river. We loved the hot tub and the very comfy beds! We did have a problem with the boiler midweek, but this was quickly resolved.
The location of the barns is good for exploring The north and the south coasts of Devon/Cornwall and for accessing Dartmoor. The barn was well stocked with leaflets and maps of places to visit nearby.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Devon Country Barns. Our dog was exhausted by all the exercise! but Ute assured us that this was normal! We would definitely recommend this place!

A much needed couple of days away was needed for my partner and I. The Cowbarn was perfect with heated flooring and every mod con right down to a great selection of Dvds. Ute offered a warm welcome and couldn’t do enough for us. Taking the dog was lovely and he had a great time.
The hot tub was incredibly, staying hot for ages and loads of towels were provided. We will be back.
