The cottage exceeded all expectations! There was everything you needed.. even down to dishwasher tablets and tea towels.. we had an arrival pack of fruit, rolls, cheese, milk, butter and hot cross buns! Joan the owner is lovely and takes a lot of pride in her cottage! I would highly recommend booking this cottage. We will be back

Our stay at Lavender Barn will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. The boiler leaked oil all over the floor prior to our arrival. The boiler was fixed on the third day of our stay, but the smell of oil lingered, and we were without heating and hot water for two days.

These things happen, and the owner did everything she could to rectify the situation.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're very sorry again for the issues you experienced with the boiler during your stay at Lavender Barn. Situations such as this are thankfully uncommon, but can occur unexpectedly and we can only apologise that this coincided with your holiday. The issue was just a small drip following the annual service, but thank you for your understanding that the owner did everything that she could, including providing portable heaters and arranging the engineer to return as quickly as possible. We were pleased to agree on a compensation figure, but we really are sorry that this impacted on your stay. Emma - Customer Support

An excellent and comfortable cottage up to the usual Classic Cottage Standards. Although rural it was only 10 minutes away from the A30. Although there are narrow lanes in part on the approach to the cottage there are plenty of passing places. A short but nonetheless enjoyable stay

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location.

A lovely well equipped and comfortable cottage in a quiet location and good surroundings and a nice garden to sit in. Once off the Devon country Lanes to the main roads (about 5miles), many places in both Devon and Cornwall are easily accessible.

We had an excellent break away from the normal routine, and enjoy the Devon countryside in springtime.

Our second stay at the cottage this year and just as lovely as the first time. The cottage is a real 'home from home' and the owner has provided everything needed. Loved the 'welcome pack' of goodies that is provided. We will be booking again for 2018.

Say a few words about the name "Germansweek". As Germans, it sounds to us like having a connection to Germany, however, later we learned that the name goes back to a Saint St Germanus...

Wonderful accommodation for a comfortable and relaxing break. Highly recommended.

This is a very comfortable and very well equipped cottage which is in a great location in Devon, giving accessibility to both the north and south coastlines and convenient to explore Cornwall being just a few miles from the Cornish border. The cottage was like 'home from home' having everything you would want; Wi Fi, comfortable sofa, big TV, outside table, chairs and parasol for breakfast and lunch on the patio. Situated in a lovely quiet village, with a good parking this cottage was an excellent choice.

We couldn't speak more highly about the beautiful cottage and surroundings , it had every thing you could possibly need and all very high quality . We were met by the owners on arrival and they went out of there way to make us welcome , and left plenty of goodies for us to enjoy. We will defiantly be using the cottage again and will recommend you to family and friends
