Our first visit to the Torquay area. We researched a location that we were able to have the comfort of home, an indoor pool, accessibility of walks on the door step, good location for easy driving to Torquay and walking distance to a local pub. The Honey Bag cottage provided all of our requirements in abundance. The cottage itself is first rate with all the facilities and comfort of being at home. The pool is heated and has great facilities included (pool table, many many children’s games and activities).
We mainly used the facility as a home base to hike the surrounding countryside. We did a lot of exploring and found lovely walks, pub cuisine and marvellous countryside right on the doorstep.
This was our wedding anniversary break so we dined a few times in Torquay and the rest at The Bickley Mill Restaurant/pub. The Bickley is just a 10 minute walk downhill going, but more like 20 coming back, but you’ll find the dining and outside sitting areas well worth the visit.
At the end of the day we couldn’t have found a more perfect accommodation for our anniversary week away. It was simply outstanding.
We will be back!
I booked the Long Barn cottage for 12 adults and 5 children to celebrate my mums 60th Birthday this year. There were 4 generations there!
We had an incredible weekend together, with enough room to spread out and not feel as though we were on top of each other. We used the local fish and chip shop one night and that was very nice.
The pool and games area was clean, well equipped and perfect for keeping the whole family (9 months - 90 years!) entertained on a rainy weekend.
Rooms were clean and well maintained, with very comfy beds. Plenty of towels and blankets for the cots that were kindly supplied.
The welcome pack of locally made goodies was a lovely treat and the children's outdoor play area was well used too, despite the rain!
Sandra has thought of everything to make your stay home from home.
Can't wait until I can celebrate my 30th birthday and go back to Long Barn!
This is my 2 nd time at the longbarn cottages in Devon and absolutely love going there, everything you need and nothing is to much to ask. The owners are very lovely and always there to meet and greet. Accommodation excellent and every little detail thought of upon arrival. J it’s looking to go back again with family. Would definately recommend.
This was the second time we have stayed at Long Barn Cottage with three daughters, their husbands and seven grandchildren. The accommodation was ample, the facilities for the children (the games room and the swimming pool) were excellent and had it been in the summer there would have been plenty of room for outdoor activities as well. Thoroughly recommended for an occasion such as we enjoyed.
I booked Long barn cottage for 13 people with 2 young children.
The cottage was immaculate and was at a very high standard.
They provided all the bedding and cots with blankets.
Very clean and spacious bedrooms most with either bathrooms or shower rooms ensuite.
The swimming pool was brilliant and the play barn for are party of a teenager and 2 ten year olds and they catered for the three year old and two year old.
Lots of toys , pool table , football table and table tennis.
There was a welcome pack on our arrival contains local products.
I would have no hesitation booking again and highly recommend for any one thinking of booking.
We visited for 3 nights in December/January over New Year, and stayed in the cottage for 2 people with our 17 month old. The cottage was full of facilities suitable for a one year old, such as high chair and stair gate. The cottage was lovely, and had some nice features such as the log burner. The facilities of the cottages are great, with heated pool, barn play room, and some large outside spaces for picnics (summer) and outside park. It's located in a quiet village, but some really nice places to visit nearby and some large towns nearby for food, and super markets. We loved it and would recommend to others, there are 4 cottages in total and it provides total privacy but everyone was so polite and we didn't hear anyone else at any time. Thank you, it was perfect.
I booked Long Barn about a year ago as a base for our family to get ready for my daughter's wedding. Sandra was very helpful and although the wedding fell at the start of the half term she was happy for us to book for a long weekend. Sandra met us on arrival and was very friendly. The property is equipped with everything you could need and was lovely and warm. The layout was fantastic for a pre wedding family meal for 15 and also for the morning of the wedding when everyone was trying to get ready and make up and photographs were being done. The property is situated in a beautiful very quiet village but is really well located between Newton Abbot and Torquay. We really couldn't have found a better property for such a special weekend.
