My daughter,son-in-law,9 month old twin girls and myself spent a delightful week at
Woodpecker Barn.The property was beautifully appointed and met all our needs.
Mike and Judy the owners, were very welcoming.There was a delicious plate of home made
scones with clotted cream and jam awaiting us, and the kitchen cupboards were very well stocked with all manner of cooking utensils.
Nothing was too much trouble for Mike and Judy and they even went out of their way to
provide a stairgate.
The barn was in a lovely location in Devons South Hams and we found plenty of lovely
places to visit and could easily have stayed an extra week.
We would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends in Australia and Dubai

“A brilliant getaway from the hustle of everyday life”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 for a stay in November 2013

A fantastic location with easy access to some many lovely places and yet you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere - so perfect for just getting away from it all. Woodpecker Barn was very cosy and comfortable and provided all you need on a holiday - home from home. Although we didn't make much use of the courtyard area in November(!!) it looks as if it would be a lovely place to idle away summer evenings. The owners could not have been more helpful and welcoming. So all in all a perfect retreat. Thank you Judy and Mike.
