Beautiful barn finished to an excellent standard. Set in the most beautiful setting within Leigh Barton. We. We're. Fortunate enough to get a guided tour and potted history from the owner. Very knowledgeable and completely fascinating. Little touches such as fresh flowers and biscuits were appreciated. We did several lovely walks from the barn without having to use the car. The barn stayed toasty warm and cosy and logs were plentiful should we have needed more. Cannot recommend enough.

A beautiful property in a fantastic historic setting and within easy reach of stunning coastline. Very friendly, helpful housekeeper/gardeners. Thoroughly recommended.

September 2016

Lovely cottage, high-end finish. Excellent facilities and very nice and friendly lady who welcomed us and made us feel at home. Well worth making a round trip of 1300 miles!!!!

September 2016

Leigh Barn is excellent but if two couples go there could be envy over who gets the master bedroom. The second bedroom whilst beautiful but only a fraction of the size of the main one. Being able to sit and walk in the grounds is idyllic, the gardeners extremely helpful and friendly

September 2016

We stayed in Leigh Barn from the 3 - 10 September 2016. Leigh Barn has been referbished to the highest standard, the kitchen had everything we needed, the bathrooms were excellent our beds were very comfy and the grounds were outstanding. What a great job Binty has done with the grounds and she was so helpful telling us places to go and with the history of the buildings, we enjoyed the guided tour she gave us and we also enjoyed the eggs, tomatoes and corgettes we had from her.

August 2016

A lovely property in a perfect location for the South Devon area. Several Beaches plus Salcombe are all within a short drive. The owner and caretakers were extremely hospitable and made us feel very welcome. The grounds are a gardeners paradise and we nearly dognapped Bell the dog to take home with us. Kingsbridge has all the amenities you need. The only draw-back is the Wi-Fi which proves difficult to access. If this isn't part of your holiday criteria, you wont have any qualms.

August 2016

Was the best cottage we have stayed in, was spotlessly clean and the gardeners were so attentive it really made the holiday.

August 2016

It ist a fantastic place - even more beautiful than it looks like on the internet !

July 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Leigh Barn: a beautifully renovated property, in peaceful surroundings. The gardens were a joy to walk around, and the personal welcome and touches by our "hostess" were much appreciated. She was a fund of knowledge about everything, from local parking and passing places to the best shops and tea rooms!

June 2016

A lovely property on a fascinating medieval site. The caretaker was very friendly and gave us a guided tour of the historic buildings. The garden was stunning and added to the overall enjoyment of the holiday.

April 2016

Overall a gem in a beautiful peaceful setting but close to Kingsbridge. Wonderful history and greatly appreciated the tour of the buildings by Dendy and the time and effort she put into this. Highly recommended.

April 2016

Leigh Barn is a very special place to stay. You can feel all of the fantastic history of it. The caretaker/gardener was lovely, friendly and helpful, giving us a tour of the old Monastery building. The comfort of the barn was excellent and the gardens a joy.

April 2016

Really great place. Beautifully furnished. Lovely touches of flowers, biscuits, milk, bread etc. Much appreciated.

March 2016

Leigh Barn is a lovely warm cosy cottage with generous sized rooms and located in a hidden away valley but ideally positioned to explore this area of South Devon.

The house keeper ensured that we were provided with everything we needed to enjoy our stay at Leigh Barn.

February 2016

This cottage is a gem. From the medieval atmosphere in the courtyard, to the spacious interior, the whole experience was perfect. A week here is the perfect anti-dote to city life. I cannot emphasise just how much we loved the place.

September 2015

We had a lovely, peaceful week at Leigh Barn. It is well furnished and very comfortable. The pictures on the website drew us to book, but the Barn and gardens are even more beautiful once seen. The Gardeners/Caretakers were welcoming and very happy to help if needed. They are also doing a fantastic job of landscaping the gardens! Would definitely recommend.

August 2015

A very comfortable holiday cottage in a great location.

August 2015

Really great location above all expectations. Marvelous garden and surrounding very nice welcome by the gardeners, very tastefully decorated and comfortably equipped. Very beautiful Bantham beach close to the cottage..

July 2015

This is a superb property for a holiday, but it is really made by the presence of the "landscape gardeners" on site. They act as caretakers, welcomers, guides, advisers on restaurants (and gardening) and really make the guests' stay excellent.

June 2015

Our stay was very enjoyable. The Barn was like a home from home. The location was very good for travelling around. The caretakers Dendy and Dave were very accommodating. The grounds of the Barn were superb and excellently maintained. We would definitely recommend to family and friends.

April 2015

I fell in love with this barn conversion the minute we walked through the front door. Absolutely wonderful, beautiful property. If only I could pick it up and take it back to Dorset with me. Highly recommended.

April 2015

The barn was superb - very clean and spacious with lovely surroundings. We were made to feel very welcome by the gardeners and owner and had a very interesting tour of the other buildings.
