We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Its in an ideal location and the views are fantastic. A really welcoming feel and a bottle of wine was very appreciated.

July 2020

We loved everything about the Hayloft, comfortable, cosy, a little quirky with great views! Will be returning for sure!!

July 2020

Very cosy little cottage decorated to a high standard and in a nice private setting.

September 2019

Lovely comfortable property in a nice area. Owners are very friendly and helpful but also will give you privacy. The area is great for exploring, walking, lots of dog friendly places

September 2019

Quirky cottage which has been thoughtfully converted from stables. There are 3 steps up from front door to each of lounge/dining area and kitchen so constantly up and down as well as quite steep stairs down to bedroom/bathroom. Lovely views from communal seating area over Ex estuary as well as the surrounding fields.

August 2019

The owners are lovely and helpful. A great cottage with stunning views and well thought out decor. Perfect for a peaceful holiday but also close enough to amenities . Would certainly come back again.

July 2019

very relaxing and I recommend this cottage to anybody wanting to get away.

May 2019

Our 2nd visit to this lovely cottage, it won't be our last. Perfect location, lovely interior, really nice owners

May 2019

Lovely setting, with views of the estuary and an easy walk to two pubs. The accommodation was perfect.

April 2019

Comfortable, tastefully decorated property with slightly quirky open plan layout, very light and airy living area. Very peaceful position on quiet farm with pleasant outside area overlooking garden and land. Seating area and main windows face west so benefit from the afternoon/evening sun. Great location for all parts of the estuary, its nature reserves, towns, supermarket, train line, beaches, walks and cycle rides. The best aspect for us was the cottage being right on the cycle path running up/down the estuary - take your bike with you! - and having so many places to go within only a few miles. We recommend visiting the waterside area of Exeter, Topsham's museum, architecture, nature reserve & cafes, Exeminster & Dawlish Warren nature reserves & beach, Turf Hotel on the Exeter canal. Many thanks to the owners.

October 2018

Good holiday home, excellent pub in village, good food.

August 2018

We had a lovely weeks holiday, the Hayloft is really comfortable and the owners have decorated this tastefully and provided a well equipped kitchen. The views overlooking the Exe Estuary are attractive and the setting peaceful. The Hayloft provided us with an excellent base for trips out to Dartmoor and the Torbay area. We also enjoyed visiting the dog friendly beach areas at Dawlish Warren and Babacombe Bay and the sandy Exmouth via the ferry from Starcross. The local pub at Cockwood harbour is within easy walking distance and an ideal place for a drink and some cheesy chips.

June 2018

Ideal spacious cottage for family very well kitted out

April 2018

Excellent tucked away position but good links to local attractions.

July 2017

Nicely presented in a lovely farm location. Didn't find anything that would cause disappointment. Would be happy to recommend and look forward to another visit. Loved Liam (he's a llama).

July 2017

This could be a very pleasant property with a bit more attention to cleanliness and general issues.

The cottage is well maintained and in a very quiet location, with a lovely view over the estuary. It is located within a mile or two of Dawlish Warren itself where there is a very nice beach and promenade. There is a restaurant on the promenade which serves very good meals at a reasonable price. There are other restaurants nearby. In all it is an excellent location to spend a holiday and we look forward to staying there again next year

June 2017

Fantastically well-equipped cottage in a lovely location - and great weather provided as an added bonus. Good pubs within walking distance, plus wifi in cottage. Blissful holiday for us.

April 2017

It was like staying in a brand new property. Also, everything was of the higtest quality, which is not always the case in rented properties! Once again, a very positive impression from Classic Cottages. We would not hesitate to use you again.

September 2016

Perfect Holiday for us with small dog, with such lovely walks. We have had many cottages over the years,but this was the best ever. So well equipped and clean. Love classic cottages !

September 2016

We stayed here for the third week of our honeymoon and it was perfect! The farm it's self is very well kept and you don't even notice the animals! Lovely view over looking the harbour too. The property was spectacular,very comfortable and the furnishings were lovely , very modern with a rustic twist. Our dog loved it too! Definatley a 10 out of 10

August 2016

Warren Hayloft is a modern and very comfortable holiday property. We enjoyed having barbecues in the garden in the evening and my little girl liked seeing some of the animals on the farm.

July 2016

Idylic. Views out the back with personal seating set the tone for an enchanting quirky barn conversion. We loved staying here for a romantic week away. Loved the bottle of wine on arrival.

Decor and furnishing very nice .Good location for this part of South West Devon

July 2015

We had a fantastic holiday at Warren Hayloft. It is a wonderful location and is right on the Exe cycle trail. We spent a fantastic day cycling the Exe estuary. The cottage is fabulous and the grounds are wonderful - including the lama! Peace and tranquillity coupled with tons to see and do....perfection!

July 2015

Bright and airy layout Decor Extremely well-equipped kitchen Comfortable beds Superb location, restful environment, great battery-recharging break!

July 2015

You can't beat the best and we had it

June 2015

A faultless place to stay that was very artistically designed and close to lots of holiday resorts.

May 2015

This is without doubt the best holiday home I have stayed in and I'd warmly recommend it to anyone seeking a peaceful, relaxing farm stay. With several decent walks close-by (safe walking for dogs too) , buses to and from Cockwood Harbour and train stations both at Starcross and Dawlish Warren, this is a perfect getaway for someone with or without a car. Plus you're only 12 minutes from outer Exeter.

Really recommend Warren Hayloft - a beautiful conversion in a lovely countryside. Ideal for walking and as a base for visiting surrounding area. Found the buses very reliable and hardly used the car.
