Loved this cottage where we spent a week with our two children. Initially all seemed good despite there being no towels which was not mentioned to us at any point in our booking.
However as the days went on there was quite a lot of coming and going in the adjoining house (there was up to five cars parked outside). Work was being done in a shed outside with radio on full blast. I had to ask the owner to turn the music down as my baby was trying to sleep at one point. I didn't feel comfortable sitting outside as there seemed to be constantly someone coming or going. On one night the owners came home at 1:15am in the morning waking us up. Not the peaceful, tranquil holiday I thought we would have (we have stayed in many cottages around Devon and never had this experience).
Weavers Barn is spacious and fairly well equipped. Overall we were pleased with our stay and the reasonable price. there are a few negatives which have niggled a little. The first being that it said no pets on the advertising but we found from the visitors book and the evidence of pet hairs that pets had definitely been there. I would not have chosen this house had I known, so the advertising is incorrect and very misleading. the owners run some sort of garage business from next door where they live and cars and motor bikes are in and out all day, plus they have their radio blasting out . As we went out most of the time it was not a real problem but should you wish to have a quiet holiday chilling out at home then you would be disappointed. It would have been helpful to have had more or should I say any information about bin days, recycling and so forth also some leaflets and information on places to visit and to eat at. Also more hanging space for clothes as there was only one wardrobe.
We did have a good week but I do think they should update their advertising re pets and also saying that cars are not needed is totally misleading....you do need a car!
So a nice house which could have been better with a few adjustments.....not good if you have young children as too busy with cars in and out right outside the front door. Also if you have any allergies to pet hair or just don't like the thought of pets having been there then this isn't for you either.
