“Perfect accommodation for our family gathering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Our family have just returned from a three day break at Longbarn. Our party ranged in age from 83 to 4 and everyone had a fantastic time. Plenty to keep the whole family occupied. We were very impressed with the standard of accommodation provided. Beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean. Would thoroughly recommend.

“Perfect in every way!”

We've just returned from our second stay at Long Barn Cottages, situated in a lovely quiet, rural hamlet in South Devon. It feels very countrified, but you're not actually very far from anything. I love this place, it really is perfect in every way! This time we stayed in Hamledown which comfortably sleeps 8 adults. Our cottage was very clean & beautifully furnished & decorated. We received a warm welcome from the owners on arrival & were greeted in the kitchen by a lovely basket of local goodies! The owners really have thought of everything - there are lots of board games, the furniture and beds are comfortable, there's plenty of cutlery & crockery and a fully equipped kitchen, right down to the plentiful supply of dishwasher tablets, kitchen foil & boxes for your picnic sandwiches!
Then there's the play barn. The swimming pool & changing rooms are clean, warm and bookable in hourly slots. For the adults & older children there's also a pool table, table football & a table tennis table. For the younger children there's an indoor play house with an upstairs & lots of ride-ons, pushchairs, cars and not forgetting the outside play area with trampoline, swings & a real boat to have a high sea 'dry' adventure in!
Sadly though, those years are long gone for us & unfortunately our boys had exam revision to do, so were grateful for the Wi-Fi connection (best in the dining room) in between taking swimming & pool breaks. When not swimming with our boys, we just enjoyed the slower & peaceful pace of life & time catching up with my parents. I feel very lucky to have this wonderful place just 90 minutes down the road and we will definitely be regular visitors!

“Lovely stay”

Just got back from a week here staying in the honey bug cottage. Ideal for two its a very comfortable and well equipped base for touring devon. The cottage itself has everything you need for a quiet week away with comfortable seating and very nice king size bed. kitchen has everything expected from dishwasher to washing machine/dryer. The facilities on offer are very good for all whether a couple or family and the heated swimming pool is a great way to start the day or unwind after a day touring the beautiful countryside and coastline. We particularly like the fact you can book a pool time for your own use. For a base to tour Devon we would highly recommend Long Barn Cottages.

“Spacious and very well equipped”

We stayed as part of a larger party, with the cottage being big enough to all join together, or have your own space. Half of the rooms are en-suite giving additional privacy if needed.
We have a toddler and baby and everything we could need was provided - cot bedding and teddy towels, bath toys, children's crockery and cutlery, stair gate at the top of the stairs, and of course things like high chair and cot. There was even a piano for them to tinkle on.
Outside there is a mini playground and toys, and the indoor pool and play barn were invaluable for rainy spells. Our toddler would have been happy had we spent most of our holiday on site!
Everything is very clean and the kitchen is very well equipped. We didn't need to ask anything but the owners, Mike & Sandra, were ready to help if we needed anything.
Will definitely come again.

“Amazing cottages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

My wife and i stayed with mike and sandra at longbarn in june 2012 after finding it online.
What a great place they have,an assortment of different sized cottages renovated from
the old dairy farm that was ,and just across from the lovely little cottage we stayed in ( honeybags ) was your own private swimming pool where i spent every morning. ( bookable by the hour ) so had exclusive use, brilliant!
Mike and sandra are a very welcoming and freindly couple and i am sure we will return.Perhaps next time with a few more family members.
