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.
