“Amazing 5* barn in gorgeous setting!”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The pictures do not do this holiday home justice. Went for my husbands birthday weekend with all the family (10 adults, 2 children (1in ready bed) and 1 baby which a cot was provided for). Close to lots of attractions in Devon. Visited Crealy which was only 20mins away, great fun for all the family. The barn had everything you needed and Michaela and Hugo couldn't have made us more welcome on arrival. We even had a hamper full of treats provided :-). The pool was clean and warm which everyone enjoyed using. The pool table was in constant use.
The barn is easy to find from the M5.
No one wanted to leave and go back to reality.
We will definitely be returning to Blackdown Barn :-).

“Wonderful place - couldn't ask for more!”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We've just returned from a week at Blackdown Barn with my two sons (aged 6 and 3). It was a great base for visiting sites and attractions in Devon. It was everything we could have wanted in a holiday home: comfortable, loads of space, plus lots of lovely little touches, such as a welcome hamper and board games for the rainy days. Thank you! Highly recommended.

So I feel like I want to cross out the ‘Great tick box’ on rating my experience and move maybe four boxes to the left. This property is incredible!!! Everything about it – from the pool table on the balcony, to the huuuge TV, the surround sound to the power shower. In truth the shower was worth the trip in itself.

And more than that the family that own it are incredibly wecloming and really helpful. On the first night they gave us fantastic tips about the local area and the combo of seeing five deer and the best sunset I have seen in years from the walk they recommended – simply wow.

Very reasonably priced – couldn’t recommend it more!!
