It’s a real shame that The Long Barn is being down sized for letting (losing a bedroom & huge lounge) as we would have loved to return.

Although previously available for six guests (with a third bedroom), the owners have decided that the best configuration will be as a two bed property sleeping four. It still offers a beautiful and spacious property with the same glorious location and a great mezzanine sitting-room, so we hope that at some point in the future your party of four may consider a return visit.

The Long Barn is an incredibly spacious, stylish, luxurious property, and the standard of the styling / furnishing and workmanship is quite something. Frankly, why we haven't seen this project on Grand Designs is beyond me; Kevin McCloud would love it! (We especially loved the bathrooms.) For a group of six, you'll have plenty of space to hang-out together or apart.
The only 'negatives' (which might not be negatives for everyone else) were that (1) you can always hear the distant rumble/swoosh of motorway traffic (M5) from the garden, and if your upstairs windows are open, and (2) the downstairs living room and rear garden are completely overlooked by the owners' home that's attached to this property. (We shut all of the downstairs' curtains to get around this issue, indoors at least.) Perhaps if the owners install vertical venetian blinds in the living room sometime, that problem indoors would be solved completely.
Also - watch your head on the beams in the bedrooms and mezzanine lounge!
Otherwise a first-class property that is comfortable, top-rate and highly enjoyable. Many thanks!

My daughter got married from this lovely house! We picked it as it was near the wedding venue and so that the family could all be together before and after the Big Day. Highly recommend.

We had such a wonderful time at the Long Barn and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. It's great that each room is a great size with a full modern bathroom ensuite, this would make it perfect for a couple of families or even three couples enjoying a staycation. The modern comforts of sonos and a Smart TV make it a real home from home.

The Long Barn is a very special holiday retreat, my family spent a lovely week there in July 2017 and will definitely return. Recommended for anyone wanting a relaxing holiday but with access to all the special parts of Glorious Devon.

We are a family with two two children and one little dog and we had a great week in June in the long barn. Everything was just perfect and lovely designed. The owners where very helpful and friendly. It was very impressive to see, how the transition from the old long barn to a luxury holiday cottage occurred. There are some nice walks close by and many interesting places are close and easy to reach with a car.

A group of six of us stayed at the Long Barn for a long weekend in April. We found the Long Barn to be a beautiful high quality holiday home. The owners were very friendly, and we left knowing that the weekend had fully met our expectations, and that we would all be very happy to return again.

A very beautiful cottage! It's perfect for a relaxing family holiday with a well-equipped kitchen, a living room with a stove and more than enough space for everyone. We spent a lovely week here during the winter months and would love to come back soon.

This is a great place to stay - good location, fab canal walks, beautiful beautiful property. Highly recommend it. This is a beautiful property - everything about it was first class, from the barn itself to the fixtures, fittings and things like bedding, kitchen equipment and so on. Would come back in a shot and would highly recommend it.
Mrs Williamson August 2016
We had a great stay in luxurious accommodation. It was like living in a magazine set. All the fixtures and fittings were first class, including sharp knives and luxury towels and bath robes.
The location is excellent, close enough for easy reach to the motorway but far enough away to be in the unspoilt country, also good rail links. Great pubs found by walking along the tow path of the canal.
Owners close by if needed but unobtrusive.
