With covid having meant we couldnt stay with family in Devon, we couldnt have been happier with the Tall Barn. The barn is clean, modern and very well equipped and the setting is ideal with fantastic views and immaculately maintained grounds to explore. Its also well located with North Devons beaches just over 30mins away and on the edge of Exmoor.Read more Margaret is a very welcoming host too, with plenty of tips on places to go and things to do (including for young children).

The owner was very friendly and welcoming, the house is extremely well equipped and comfortable,and every room had beautiful artefacts around. No tat here.

We found the cottage extremely comfortable and so well equipped. The quality soft furnishings and fittings together with numerous paintings and ornaments to be found everywhere make this place special. Outside the gardens are well maintained and the larger grounds are ideal for our four legged friends. Our dog loved playing in the fields.

We had a very enjoyable time. The owner had decked out the cottage with xmas cheer including a tree. Very dog friendly since there were multiple fields outside our front door for our dog to run. The house was full of the most beautiful ornaments and felt like a home from home. The owner was immediately on site to sort the few problems we had. HighlRead morey recommended. Hide

Absolutely fabulous accommodation. We loved the peace and quiet. The only thing is that you really do need your own transport as it is quite a distance from shops/pubs etc. Our party spanned age groups from 2 - -+60 and suited all. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Accommodation was lovely, very comfy beds and the surrounding area for taking our well behaved pooches for their morning and evening walks was ideal.

The Tall Barn is in lovely grounds, plenty of walks for the dogs, and wildlife in the fields. My husband was stalked by a deer at one point which was lovely. The bedrooms are light and airy, the lounge is a little dark but to be honest, with so much to do in the area and playing games at the dining table most evenings, we didn't spend a lot of timeRead more in there. There was plenty of lighting, just not a lot of natural light. The kitchen is a joy, everything you need. Hide
