“Meadow barn”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in meadow barn which was excellent in all respects , everything was to a very high standard. A lovely welcome awaited us with flowers , fresh scones,eggs and even biscuits for our dog ! The surrounding areas are beautiful , lots of fields , great for walking . We will definitely return especially to use the outside space in warmer weather , the sunsets would be fantastic to watch . We highly recommend Devon Country Barns for a peaceful , relaxing and high quality holiday .

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

We stayed in Orchard Barn and had the most perfect stay from start to finish. We were welcomed by Ute and had fresh flowers and scones on arrival. Orchard barn is gorgeous and definitely perfect for couples. It is equipped fantastically, cleaned spotlessly and is so cosy! Despite the miserable weather we managed to use the hot tub and enjoyed the gorgeous surrounding views with a glass of champagne. The bed is heavenly and the massive bath was very welcomed after a day out in Dartmoor! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. We are already looking at dates for our next visit!!

We stayed in the Apple Barn in early November. The barn was wonderful as were the surroundings.
We loved every minute of it and my young daughter especially loved collecting eggs in the morning.
The owners make you feel very welcome and at home and we look forward to going back soon.
We thoroughly recommend!

Well this place is absolutely more than perfect! We stayed in the Orchard Barn, a really cosy and romantic little house/barn! It's very nice decorated and more than comfortable!

Well I don't know were to start, because everything is really very fine about this place! The barn is just everything you wish for on a relaxing holiday! When you want to forget about your busy life at home, just go here!

But if you want to leave the really lovely barns (they just have anything you wish for...) and leave the hot tub for a while ;-) the area is really beautiful, there are many things to visit! The Eden Project, Lost garden of Heligan or the Dartmoor forest, it's all worth a visit! The drive towards it, is also beautifully thru the countryside!

And after a walk or day out, take a relaxing moment in the hot tub :-) or drink a good glass of wine in front of the romantic stove.

And practical: it's really clean, bed and sofa really comfortable and the kitchen is very well equiped. There's even a washingmachine!

The owners are very friendly! When you arrive they give you a real warm welcome!

Very, very highly recommended!!

We just got back from our little break at Devon Country Barns and we wish we were still there! We stayed at Orchard Barn, perfect for couples. It has everything you need and more, stunning views, underfloor heating (nice surprise!), great kitchen, Sky TV, wifi. Also worth mentioning it was absolutely spotless. The hot tub was fantastic, it was made even more enjoyable by the amazing sunset and stars. Perfect location, easy to find and just a short drive away from some amazing places. There are some lovely little surprises waiting for you when you arrive but we won't say what they are! We would absolutely recommend a trip to Devon Country Barns.

A big thanks to Richard and Ute, who made us feel very welcome. We will be back for sure.

My partner and I stayed in the Apple House for a week at the beginning of October and we absolutely fell in love with the house and its surroundings. Unfortunately we never had the chance to meet Ute, however Richard was the most accommodating host and gave us a very warm welcome. We were made to feel at home from the second we arrived, absolutely everything had been thought of to make your stay magical. The hot tub and patio were really fantastic with the most spectacular views. We loved our stay and would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for wonderful accommodation in the Devon/Cornwall area. Thank you Richard and Ute we would definitely visit again.

We booked the Apple House for half term week and had a fabulous holiday. It was our first holiday with our new puppy and I can't tell you how pleased we were when we realised that we didn't need to compromise on luxury in order to have our new family member with us!

The owners Richard and Ute gave us a warm welcome and their barn conversions are truly stunning. Although the location is remote, the views across the valley are beautiful and you can get to a variety of lovely places within half an hour (we'd recommend Lydford Gorge, Crackington Haven and Tavistock as great places to visit).

Our sons (13 & 11) really enjoyed their morning routine of going to see the chickens, ducks and geese and then walking down across the fields to the river. They also thought the hot tub on the patio at the Apple House was wonderful - my husband and I would agree!

We definitely hope to return to Devon Country Barns in the future.
