We had a lovely stay at Sandy Cross Barn. The property was spotlessly clean and the owner had taken every possible precaution to protect us from any possible contamination of Covid 19. We would definitely recommend the property and would like to return at some point in the future.

This is a cottage we would willing return to, the area was beautiful and the amenities were very sufficient. The owner was very helpful before we even arrived at the cottage with information on the house and surrounding area.

We had a lovely stay at Sandy Cross Barn. It was spacious and everything was finished to high standards. The welcome gifts were an added bonus and the property had everything you needed for a cottage holiday.

We have had a lovely stay at Sandy Cross- it was so nice to get away during this pandemic - peace of mind given before going cottage would be to high standard and it really was - very clean. Lovely welcome gifts. The kitchen is so well equipped and has nice extras such as washing up liquid and kitchen towels to be able to use. The outdoor area is lovely and quiet and secluded - we were able to play outdoor games with the children it was fab. The main thing we would say we missed at the barn was a second tv upstairs as with a larger family it would be ideal at times to have the option especially as the main door opens into tv and can be annoying when others are walking in and out. We enjoyed lovely beach days and a few day’s out - wildwood Escot is a hidden gem and worth a visit and Darts Farm - another gem. Thankyou for a much needed break.

This is a lovely sized cottage, perfect for exploring East Devon. The cottage has everything you would need and the owner was very helpful in providing an extra fridge and a bed rail for my three year old. It has a fully enclosed beautiful, flat garden, which is ideal for children.

Lovely relaxed and comfortable family holiday.

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

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.

Well furnished, comfortable, well equipped, extremely clean.

As soon as we arrived, we felt at home.

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

All of us including a 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'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. Tanya, Customer Support

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

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.

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.

Sandy Cross Barn offers high quality holiday accommodation. It has a real home from home feel, is beautifully furnished and fully equipped to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is a pleasant enclosed and secluded south facing garden.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Wonderful property in a very peaceful location. Highly recommended.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

Cosy and comfortable and clean.

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!

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!

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!

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

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.

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.

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

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

A very comfortable, extremely well equipped and attractive cottage in a good location for exploring South East Devon

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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