The old Granary is in a lovely scenic peaceful and private setting and the hosts have thoughtfully made sure their guests have everything they need within the accommodation to enjoy their holiday. Leigh farm is also a great base to tour the surrounding area and lovely to return to at the end of the day.

Had a wonderful time. Cannot fault the host who were very welcoming and the cream tea was a lovely surprise upon our arrival! Would stay again as the area was so lovely and peaceful.
Ms Dimmock May 2022
Brilliant cottage. Attention to detail on every level. Just be aware the phone signal is patchy but perfect for me as it’s great to get away from screens! Lovely walks and available things to do i.e National Trust places, Bovey Tracy etc. definitely go back there
Ms Abraham October 2021
this is a wonderful little gem. we especially loved the little balcony overlooking the owners garden. great for our afternoon coffee. the log burner was on every night and very easy to light. the welcome cream tea was a nice touch especially after our journey to the cottage .
Miss Black September 2021
The Granary is set in a beautiful location - extremely quiet and perfect for a relaxing holiday. Covid precautions and information couldn't have been better and the cottage was exceptionally clean.
Miss Chappell August 2021
Kitchen was best equipped I've ever had. Gave us lovely cream tea on arrival. Really lovely hosts who helped us with anything we needed. Fabulous gardens and surroundings. Wonderful Bird life.

Miss Barrett July 2020
Beautiful, peaceful place. I chose it because it was near my family - when I visit Devon, I usually stay with my parents but a self catering cottage seemed easier in these covid times. The granary is cosy and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful. The alpaca are adorable. I plan on staying next time I visit my family.
Mrs Brandwood July 2019
We had a really wonderful stay at The Granary. The delicious cream tea on arrival set the tone for a very relaxing and enjoyable week in South Devon, and the cottage provided a perfect base for exploring Dartmoor and surrounding areas. The kitchen was also the best equipped we have ever stayed in; the owners have really thought of everything which made self-catering an absolute dream. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and very peaceful, with the occasional sheep bleating in the distance. I'd love to return some day!
Miss Fairhurst June 2019
A great stay, perfect location, quiet and peaceful. A perfect base for exploring East Dartmoor. Would stay here again.

Lovely cottage for two in beautiful gardens. Feels miles away from everywhere but is surprisingly accessible. Cream Tea on arrival a welcome treat!
Ms Huber August 2017
The cottage is well equipped with everything needed and beautifully furnished. The friendly, caring and helpful owners welcomed me with cream tea and a lovely flower arrangement. Instructions are clear and comprehensive. I especially appreciated the "deck", a wonderful opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the view of the beautiful garden.

Beautiful conversion ideal for a quiet getaway for two. The owners have taken great care with everything, and we were made to feel very welcome. The cream tea on arrival was a nice touch.
Miss Larkin June 2017
If you like peace and quiet, a lovely garden, a barn with a wood-burner and a cosy bed, this is for you. A wooden balcony overlooking the garden. The owners are wonderful. Our dog loved it too.
Dr Jolliffe May 2017
A nice barn conversion in a lovely old farm with wonderful views and surroundings. A good dog-friendly place to have a happy stay.
Mrs Head October 2016
Perfect place to relax. Lots of places to visit and some very nice places to eat nearby. Owners went out of their way to help with directions etc.
Mrs Luechinger September 2016
The place is wonderful. The Cottage is very cosy and the garden is so beautiful. If you want peace, this is just the right place to stay. By the arrival we got a warm welcome from the owners with a nice bunch of flowers and home-made scones.
Mrs Lloyd August 2016
After gorgeous online interior shots, the reality was rather dark, depressing and dissapointing, not helped by poor lighting and dated soft furnishings. A lovely building in lovely gardens, this cottage just needs a bit more TLC to bring it up to its rating. Good layout however and friendly helpful Owners on site. Absolutly no WiFi or phone signal and dodgy TV. We feel this cottage was expensive for what was provided.

We were so sorry to see that you were unhappy with the property. It is an older property, and the furnishings are in keeping with the feeling of rural charm and, we feel, are very accurately shown on the Web site. It's a shame you found the lighting insufficient and we'll have a chat with the Owners to see if this can be improved. We're glad that the Owners could help quickly with the difficulties you had using the television - no broadband is advertised here and, like many country locations in the area, phone signal is limited. Your feelings re the price are disappointing especially as you booked at a discounted price. Please do feel free to give us a call before booking in future so that we can ensure the property you choose has all the facilities you require. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Linde July 2016
We would love to come back anytime!
Mrs Bennett July 2016
We spent an idyllic, peaceful week at The Granary and were welcomed warmly on arrival by the Owners and their family. The property had everything we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed the property, grounds and location which was very convenient for visiting many of Devon's attractions. We will be returning.
