This was home away from home. It was an excellently equipped cottage. Loads to do in the surrounding area.

October 2018

Thank you for a lovely and quiet break. This cottage is beautifully furnished and maintained to a high standard. Great thought had been invested in this property as a holiday let. Would definitely recommend.

September 2018

Well furnished, comfortable, well equipped, extremely clean.

As soon as we arrived, we felt at home.

September 2018

A very enjoyable stay in this quiet and comfortable house. The owners and caretakers made us very welcome with their calls and kindness.

Lovely barn conversion in a quiet location, very relaxing holiday

July 2018

6 of us and young baby have had a wonderful 2 weeks holiday here at Sandy Cross barn. Very clean, quality fittings and well equipped cottage, a home from home with every detail considered. We felt very well looked after from the owner. We would comment However that we managed with 6 adults well only because we could use the garden every day. We felt the living space was slightly too small for 6 to be in comfortably for two weeks

We're so pleased that you had a fantastic stay at Sandy Cross Barn - it's really popular with our guests and there's so much for families to do in the surrounding area. We've had many parties of six stay over the years as people particularly like the option of the two single bedrooms and three bathrooms/shower-rooms, but we're glad that the lovely weather meant you were able to use the enclosed garden to the fullest as well.

Very clean and comfortable cottage with a nice secluded garden and enough parking space for two cars. Nice quiet hamlet.

May 2018

A really beautiful holiday cottage. Owners clearly take great pride in making it a lovely place to stay and are very thoughtful in terms of equipping the cottage with absolutely everything you can imagine needing on your holiday (even a baby bath!). Welcome basket was a really nice touch and much appreciated as was the call from the owner before the holiday and the housekeeper on the day of arrival. Would strongly recommend - we all loved the place and hope to return. Good location with East Budleigh nearby, Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton and Bicton Park just round the corner.

October 2017

It's lovely and all the arrangements prior to the holiday starting and once arrived were very well done. Thank you for a great holiday.

September 2017

This is a great holiday property in an great location. We spent 2 lovely weeks in Sandy Cross Barn and didn't want to leave. The welcome hamper supplied by the owners was a lovely touch and really appreciated.

August 2017

Just returned from a week at Sandy Cross Barn and hope to return. I have stayed at various self-catering properties over the years and this was the best so far. Welcoming, clean, safe and located well. The personalised contact from the owner made sure our visit was straightforward and easy.

July 2017

Sandy Cross Barn felt like home from home for our family. It was spacious and comfortable. The outside space was excellent too. It was a real bonus to have free access to Woodbury Park Country Club for rainy days and the more active members of our party. We also found lots of places to visit close by. The location is excellent.

May 2017

We had a wonderful holiday week at Sandy Cross Barn. The lounge and kitchen area were like home from home, all bedrooms were comfy and the bathrooms were clean and spacious. It was a real treat to sit out in the private garden and we loved the nearby village of East Budleigh.
The holiday cottage is presented exactly as seen on the website, which is very reassuring. All five members of our holiday group would definitely recommend this accommodation.

April 2017

Wonderful property in a very peaceful location. Highly recommended.

September 2016

Beautiful property with a secure back garden suitable for young children. The age of our party spanned 4 months to 64 years and everyone was happy!

August 2016

An amazing barn conversion which was great in every way. Every home comfort you could wish for and a lovely enclosed garden. Very suitable for families.

August 2016

Best holiday cottage we've ever stayed at, it literally has everything you need not once did we think of anything that was needed. Beautiful property in a quiet location but still with easy access to all the local attractions.

July 2016

We had a lovely holiday in this beautiful cottage, which was very well equipped and had everything we needed. It was in a great location for the beaches and other local attractions, and the added bonus was being able to go swimming at the nearby Country Club when the British Summer weather let us down. Would highly recommend it.

March 2016

In good location not far from lovely beaches and open spaces.

February 2016

Cosy and comfortable and clean.

December 2015

Great location for walks, bike rides and day's out. The added benefit of the Country Club membership is a bonus - if you have time to fit it in!

October 2015

Sandy Cross Barn is an excellent holiday cottage for exploring Devon.

We had a wonderful stay there and enjoyed the log fire and also access to the local health center.

The cottage is close to lots of attractions and there are also very nice walks in the surrounding areas.

We will be returning in the future I am sure!

October 2015

Our fourth visit to Sandy Cross and we are still over the moon with it. Fantastic cottage, must be the cleanest house in the world. Everything looks and feels brand new. Wonderful location to visit so many attractions, from Lyme Regis and Beer to Sidmouth and Budleigh. We will be back!

September 2015

Sandy Cross Barn is in a delightful setting. Well equipped and decorated. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Devon.

July 2015

It has rejuvenated our belief in UK holidays. The cottage is the best we have ever stayed in and will very likely stay here again. The country club for swimming and spa on bad weather days and the tennis courts if you are feeling sporty were both great for all the family.

May 2015

This is a seriously well presented property. The layout and fittings were of a very high quality,and the location was peaceful and quiet. plenty of birdsong and a suntrap of a garden were just fine for us people of a certain age. Eating out was easy with plenty of choice locally.

March 2015

An excellent base for visiting this area of Devon. Couldn't wish for better accommodation. My family love it!

September 2014

The entrance door mat says 'Home' on it and that sums up the description of the property.

Everything you could wish for in a holiday cottage.

Ideal spot for touring with everything you could think of supplied. Very clean, excellent housekeeper. A beautiful cottage with lovely gardens. Thank you.

October 2013

This is our third time visiting Sandy Cross Barn. We love it! A great cottage, comfortable, clean, well equipped and in such a great location for touring. It suits all the members of our party -ranging from age 5 to 83! The owners are so keen to make your holiday experience one you will not forget, going out of their way to make the stay at Sandy Cross comfortable and most enjoyable. We will be back.

October 2013

Sandy Cross Barn is a stunning property in a beautiful location with every amenity you could think of - I can't recommend it highly enough. We had a lovely break.

September 2013

For our visit to East Devon in Sept/Oct we wanted to be sure of a comfortable, clean and homely place in a rural location with all the modern appliances we are used to at home. We also prefer a detached property, secluded with a garden and Sand Cross Barn met all the criteria. We would recommend to prospective visitors to this area of Devon.

September 2013

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is spacious, clean, comfortably furnished and well equipped. The location is very quiet and peaceful and the surrounding villages are very pretty. Very close to Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth and Sidmouth, which are all nice coastal places to visit. Owner's welcome phone call prior to our holiday was very helpful and informative.

May 2013

The owners and housekeeper are brilliant - making a great place for a family holiday. Very clean house in a quiet location.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
