Pro's - A fab. find with much better than average space and a master bedroom to die for!! Leigh Barn is in a unique setting with the grade 1 listed fortified farmhouse range and Poundhouse adjacent. A huge expanse of gardens are to the rear and follow a stream down the hill. Access both ways is by narrow Devon lanes which could test your reversing skills but adds to the character of the area. Whilst there we can recommend the Church House Inn at Churchstow (1 1/2 miles) for dinner and The Herons Nest (just north of Loddiswell) for breakfast or brunch/lunch. Con's - Better lighting over bedroom dressing table and en-suite and wet room mirrors would be helpful as would clear food storage spaces in kitchen. If, like us, you are staying there in the cold season ask for additional heaters for the downstairs bedroom as central heating is not adequate in this area. ...

Staying at Leigh Barn was an absolute delight. Tucked away in the countryside, surrounded by nature with a wonderful walk through the owners gardens and fields was all that we wanted and more. We couldn’t believe that a green woodpecker visited the lawn outside regularly. The barn itself was so comfortable, warm to return to at the end of the day, in a week that was bitterly cold, but bright. We had everything that we needed to make our stay really comfortable. The beds were the best we have encountered in any holiday cottage which was another added bonus. A big thank you to the owners who have obviously put a lot of thought and care into creating a wonderful holiday home. We will definitely return again....
