Plympton Barn is a peaceful place, we had a wonderful week on holiday here. Our long drive from the North East was rewarded with the last few miles being driven down winding roads, passing thatched roof cottages and the most beautiful countryside. The barn is well appointed and very comfortable, we had everything we needed during our stay. Eating out locally can be a little expensive but we found some great restaurants nearby in Kingbridge and would recommend The Old Bake House which was excellent! The Winking Prawn is good for drinks if you don't mind sitting outside, not a problem for us in the long summer evenings. Check out Bantham Beach and Burgh Island and drop in to Overbecks which on your doorstep. A great place to discover, we loved it and would certainly return.
We had a wonderful week in May at Plympton Barn, so much so that none of us really wanted to leave! Both Jaap and his mother Michele were a delight to deal with and Michele very kindly gave us lots of advise about where to purchase the best fish and meat and eggs! We loved meeting Jack her dog and seeing all her wonderful artwork.
The barn itself is beautiful with a lovely stone floor and underfloor heating. It is spacious with two bedrooms, a downstairs toilet and bathroom and a very useful utility space with a washing machine. The upstairs living area has wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and with the bi-fold doors open the only sound is of a babbling brook at the end of the garden. There is no mobile signal at the barn but the internet connection is very good. The bottle of wine and fresh flowers on arrival was a lovely touch. Although we crammed a lot in to our week away we had a very relaxing time at Plympton barn and would love to visit again soon.
We had a week's stay with 6 month old baby in early Feb. Very nice barn conversion - living quarters on the top floor with lovely views of green fields and very comfortable bedrooms and bathroom with walk in shower and bath downstairs. The washing machine came in very useful. Kitchen well equipped. Lovely and warm property - even without using the log burner. Despite being completely snowed in, we still had some lovely walks and made use of the South Sands hotel for a very pleasant (if slightly expensive) lunch. Will certainly return, hopefully with some warmer weather! Thanks Jaap for being so helpful and easy to contact.
Plympton Barn was the perfect start to our Devon holiday. The barn itself was modern, clean and very spacious with comfortable beds and well-equipped kitchen and bathrooms. The location was perfect as we could walk to the to SounthSands and Northsands beaches via the country lanes while enjoying the architecture of the area and the inspiring countryside while picking enough blackberries to eat on the beach!! The Co-Op in Marlbourough proved useful for groceries, fresh bakery and an ATM!!
The Meijers were excellent hosts and were very gracious when we turned up a party of 4 instead of the promised 2 (last minute changes, apologies!!) and were quick to discreetly arranged the beddings.
We are so happy to have chosen the Barn for our stay in Salcombe and promise to return very soon.
Thank you Jaap and Michele!!
A beautiful barn conversion walking distance to south sands. Always a friendly welcome. Very quiet. The surrounding area is perfect for a family holiday. Beaches are very child friendly and extremely clean. Plenty to do in and around salcombe.
I would recommend highly.
This is a very comfortable barn conversion with comfortable lounge, well equipped kitchen and modern bathroom/ features. Perfect for a couple or a family as one bedroom has a king sized bed and the other has twin beds. The toilet is separate to but just next to the spacious bathroom and has its own sink so that provides a bit of welcome flexibility if you are a family. Lovely powerful walk in shower plus a great bath for relaxing in if that's your preference. One very nice thing about this barn is that it isn't at all damp as so many barns can be and has underfloor heating in the bathroom plus a hyper modern air circulation system which is silent. It's a very lovely location down a typical South Hams lane and we walked very happily down to South Sands beach in fifteen mins , it's a pleasant stroll with thatched cottages and picture postacard views. Ofcourse you can drive easily to Salcombe itself in ten mins and to loads of other lovely spots like Hope Cove, Thurlstone, Kingsbridge etc. There is a little private patio area just for the Barn which is shady in the morning and sunny in the afternoon. There is a table and chairs there. We'd definitely stay again as this was for us just the type of place we like.
stayed for 7 night's here.The barn has everything you could need set amongst the country side. Ideal base for those who enjoy walking. Some great restaurantsand bars/pubs in the area. Lots of coves with sandy beaches nearby most with ample parking. Complimentary bottle of wine on arrival always welcomed.
