Friendly owners. Far from the madding crowds. Good base for exploring Exmoor.

September 2017

Really lovely cottage/barn. Owners were welcoming and on hand if needed but not intrusive. Immaculately clean property and very well equipped.

August 2017

Beautiful grounds and very nice hosts. A really peaceful and pleasant location. Welcomed with a cream tea and treats for the dog. The garden was dog friendly and enclosed as was the extended grounds.

The games room was an added touch of fun and also well equipped. We had a great time and would definitely consider returning. Sarah

This accommodation more than met our expectations with its up-to-date and superb finish throughout. The garden was a nice place for our dog to run around and the games room was brilliant for our girls with a choice of several different games. We had brought our own board games, but there was a good choice of such in the games room. Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

July 2017

Perfect property for complete chill out. Host were very friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble. Lovely accommodation very comfortable and well equipped kitchen. Games room had everything for a fun and entertaining night. Private garden which is ideal for pet owners, and all so the use of owners own gardens to stroll around in.

July 2017

The property exceeded our expectations! The owners of Westlake Barn were perfect hosts and provided us with many tips and suggestions on places to visit in the area. Our dogs were made very welcome and allowed to explore the owners' grounds at Westlake Barn. The barn was spotlessly clean and by far the best holiday home that we have stayed in. Everything you could possibly wish for was provided along with a delightful Devon cream tea on our arrival, a crusty loaf, butter and milk. It was also very thoughtful to provide treats for our dogs, doggy towels (which we made good use of), food bowls and beds. The decor of the Barn was bright and airy and very welcoming. I am sure we will be booking a return trip very soon. Fabulous holiday had by all of us.

August 2016

We spent a week at Westlake Barn and could easily have stayed longer. It was a real home from home with every little detail thought of. The property was spotlessly clean with gorgeous furnishings and everything you could possibly need provided. The owners were lovely, on-hand if you needed them but unobtrusive. A delicious cream tea, bread and flowers on arrival were a lovely surprise. By far the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in and I cannot recommend a stay here enough. A beautiful home in a beautiful part of the country.

July 2016

First time away from home for Christmas so was a little anxious, but everything was perfect. The neighbouring farm folk were very friendly, the local pub was welcoming and the owner was pleasant and Dillan the dog was great! Would happily recommend this holiday home and hope to return in the summer. Thank you.

September 2014

Westlake barn was a warm and comfortable retreat from the hustle of normal life. We spent two weeks relaxing thoroughly and exploring the local area. Our dog was intrigued by the local wildlife and the neighbouring six dogs were very friendly. The neighbours were welcoming and quick to stop for a chat, I highly recommend sampling some of the farmer's freshly extracted honey. We didn't want to leave!

April 2014

The location was really lovely overlooking the fields of a working farm next door. The farmer's family were very friendly and helpful. The games room was well kitted out and all the equipment was well looked after. The main living area was really comfortable and our 2 dogs enjoyed investigating the field at the back of the barn a great few days were had by us all, thank you

February 2014

Excellent location and all very friendly. Bedrooms were a bit small, but overall a good place to stay. Games room was excellent

September 2013

Westlake Barn is beautiful, comfortable, clean, so peaceful and very well equipped. I'm very fussy about hygiene but I could walk on the floors without getting my feet dirty! The games room is great with pool table, dart board, piano, bar area and seating, again this is kept very clean. The utility room is clean, has good facilities and you can use it whenever you want. We had a really relaxing time here and it far exceeded our expectations of a self catering holiday in Devon. Places worth a visit are Dulverton, Dunster village and castle, Lynton & Lynmouth (try the cliff railway) such a pretty area and you may be able to see Wales on a clear day and Tarr Steps. Absolutely wonderful break.

September 2013

Would thoroughly recommend Westlake Barn. It's finished to a high specification, is extremely comfortable and the views are stunning. The Manager/Housekeeper was extremely helpful and friendly as was the farmer. We shall definitely book this property again and bring our walking boots!!!!

May 2013

Lovely open plan converted barn with a private garden and the bonus of a games room. Very quiet location, with friendly farmer and housekeeper that make you feel very comfortable.
