After a spur of the moment decision to go away to Sidmouth with nothing booked in advance we saw the signs for the Barn & Pinn while driving down the main road, it looked very inviting from the outside so decided to call in to see if they had any vacancies. The owners were very accommodating at short notice to... More

We stayed here as a family for three nights last weekend and used three rooms in the top of the cottage. Kim explained to my mum who made the booking what each room was like and arranged for us to have the top floor to ourselves. My husband and I stayed in room one which I absolutely loved. Everything was... More

The bathrooms were lovely, but I had the feeling that the owners did the minimum they could to justify £91 a night. The rooms were really outhouses done up, they were small, the beds were small, there was no chair and you could hear EVERYTHING in the room next door. From the notices in the car park and the rooms... More

Not Welcoming????? NOT TRUE !!! I do not understand where this review is coming from at all ! You chose our outside double room Room 8 which we have converted from a coach house, not an outhouse! Room 7 attached to it was at one time a blacksmiths. Both rooms have been beautifully and sympathetically renovated and have lovely high... More

Just back today from my 3rd visit to 'The Barn and Pinn Inn. Just myself and one pampered pooch, Love the fact that despite that I stay in a dog friendly room, you would never know it. Obviously to do with the way it is looked after by the hosts and the respectful people that stay there with their dogs,... More

We stayed by chance at this gorgeous B&B for 2 nights and were truly blown away by the stunning building, beautiful rooms, cleanliness, friendly hosts, lovely grounds and magnificent breakfasts. We stayed in the thatched cottage which, as well as beautiful rooms, also had a lovely comfortable lounge. Our children had two smaller rooms which were also comfortable, spotlessly clean... More

We were very impressed with the high standards and attention to detail provided at this B & B. We enjoyed a very comfortable night and an excellent breakfast and we would be happy to stay there again. The owners were friendly and helpful. They worked hard to give everyone the best possible experience.

Please to find a dog friendly B&B. Spotless room and grounds, warm welcome. Excellent breakfast variety... plus sausage for our dog! SMALL room no chair other then the bed to sit on, while the wardrobe was unnecessarily large for a short stay. A little pricey, with no outstanding view. Good dog friendly pub next door.

When you rung last minute enquiring about a dog friendly room, the only one available was Room 8. I explained to you that this room had a lovely comfortable memory foam bed, a good size en-suite shower room with a good shower but it did not have additional seating. We have a lovely big comfortable guest lounge and should the... More

Stayed at this place for 2 nights. Very tranquill place and the breakfast was a highlight. A bit of red tape when it comes to taking the dogs, such as the policy on dogs as there are copious rules, but then again it's where they live so they have to keep it looking good. I guess I would question whether... More

Thank you for your review With regard to the 'Red tape' Dog policy, Yes we do have quite a few points on it, but each is due to an incident with a guest and how they let their dogs behave, both yours are rescue dogs but you do appreciate that we want to keep the place beautiful, clean and fresh...

Beautiful country cottage. High standard of decor. Scrumptious breakfasts. I recommend the porridge, smoked salmon and scrambled egg , haddock and poached egg, and kippers ( not all at the same time however). The hosts are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Like home from home.
