We had a lovely week in Larch Barn. Very comfortable and spacious. Lovely location, very quiet. Ease of visiting locations in area and a lovely pub, Hare and Hounds 10 minutes away, good food and very dog friendly. Our dog is elderly so found the paths around and in the grounds of property difficult, due to being on the side of a hill. Owner very knowledgeable of area and helpful. Thank you for the extra rugs for our dog who has difficulty with uncarpeted floors.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Larch Barn - it sounds like you had a wonderful holiday overall and enjoyed visiting lots of lovely places all over Devon. Larch Barn is situated on a hillside overlooking a beautiful valley with lots of paths and lovely walks dotted around the grounds of the owner's cottage. If you're looking for something more 'on the flat' in the future however to accommodate your four legged friend, then please don't hesitate to get in touch as we'd be delighted to help you find something suitable for all.

A stunning barn conversion in an equally stunning setting. It all looks beautiful in the advert and it more than lives up to expectations. Thank you

Larch Barn proved to be the perfect venue for our week exploring the beautiful East Devon countryside and coastline. We have stayed in some lovely places over the years but this has to be one of the best in every way and we would highly recommend Larch Barn for its superb position, excellent facilities and very high standard of accommodation

We absolutely adored this barn conversion. It has quality and comfort throughout whilst nestled in a fantastic rural location. Kevin the owner is very welcoming and has equipped the bedrooms, ensuites, lounge and balcony with everything that you could need for a very comfortable stay. The views from the balcony were breathtaking and perfect for watching the sunset and star gazing. Parking for 2 cars was easy and the location was perfect for visits to Sidmouth, the donkey sanctuary and many other attractions. We strongly recommend Larch Barn and hope to return soon. Thank you Kevin for a fantastic holiday.

Larch Barn has that delightful uncluttered feel of a holiday cottage yet still provides everything needed for a home from home experience. Kevin, the owner was present and helpful without being intrusive and he really made the holiday with some little extra touches. If you like a gentle stroll there is a great walk through the adjoining fields and back through the wood and for something more challenging there are paths and bridleways accessible directly from the cottage including the East Devon Way which passes through some beautiful bluebell woods - I would love to return at bluebell time. There is a lot of wildlife to see around the area including some Roe deer who visited the gardens most days during my visit. Sidmouth, Branscombe and Beer are really easily accessed and there are amazing coastal walks and lovely places to stop for afternoon tea. There really was nothing not to like about this holiday.

Please feel free to publish as the barn is one of the best we have stayed in and excepting my two large dogs who behave, made us feel very welcome. We have a wonderful week, the Barn is so lovely warm, clean and beautifully decorated, making relaxing is so easy. The underfloor heating was excellant and shower brillant for my tall fussy husband. The short walk around the attached land with the views complemented the relaxing feel. The deer in the garden, seal on the beach and the high standard of food in local pubs, cafes and restaurants. Only a short drive to coastal points of interest and in February the crowds were missing, and we worked around the weather. Kevin the owner is on site and is very consensus that all our needs were met, which was easy as we had none.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
