Walnut Barn was fabulous especially for a large family holiday, would definitely book again.
Mrs Williams August 2023
Fabulous barn with lots of space for everyone! Well equipped, very relaxing! Great safe garden with swings which the kids loved.
There were a lot of flies and wasps in august so we had to eat inside. There were a few cleaning issues which I have spoken to owner about but if these are addressed the property definitely has the WOW factor and I would highly recommend.

Beautiful property every thing you could possibly need included.
Mrs Copping July 2023
Walnut Barn was beautiful. We arrived slightly early and the housekeeping team were still inside. As they left, they were really helpful and friendly. The gentleman who also tends the lawns had just been and came to say hello and asked us to put the recycling bins out Tues night, for collection Wednesday. We did do this but no one emptied it so Thursday it was brought back onto the driveway. The house was great. A few cobwebs but being in the country you just have to expect a good few spindly spiders in corners. The gutters and skylights need a clean but the whole house was gorgeous nonetheless. We would come back to Walnut Barn in future. The only criticism I have is that we couldnt find a pizza tray for the oven or any flat non-stick trays - only big roasters which I couldnt put a pizza flat on either. Also, we only got left 1 single tea towel for drying up all week with 6 of us there. A spare would have helped because with flies about we tended to use a teatowel to lay over cooked dishes of food incase people wanted to go back for seconds, and then no one knew what to do with their damp hands after they had washed off their hands. The beds are very comfy and all the appliances are high end and user friendly - but the hob was tricky and I could not find the instructions anywhere. Not in the drawers listed in the house manual. I had to google it. Definitely recommend a stay here for a large group. The games room was great and theres lots of games in the house and books for people including the kids. The wi-fi worked well and my two teenagers never moaned to me once about it lol.

The location was good and in a secluded position down a lane, so was nice and private. The kitchen was fully equipped and met everyone in our party's needs. The outdoor furniture is in need of TLC as it looked tired as did the patio areas both front and rear of the property. Not sure when the property was last used but both outside and inside had cobwebs on all the windows and doors which we had to brush and vaccum away so we felt comfortable. The lounge sofa and chairs were stained in places so a little offputting not knowing what the stains were. Bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms as expected. Overall we did enjoy our stay at Walnut Barn but would suggest that the owners invest some time and money into maintaining it both inside and out so it reflects the images on your website which is why we chose this property. First time bookers with Classic Cottages and a little disappointed with the standard as we are regular users of other rental sites where we have never had an issue.

A very well equipped and comfortable property, ideal for family groups (and their doggy companions). It’s in a peaceful rural location, but is close to Cullompton which has many amenities and has close easy access to the motorway, so beaches and other tourist attractions are easily reached. Highly recommend a visit to nearby Fordmore Farm Shop Cafe.
Mrs Drake May 2023
I'd absolutely recommend Walnut Barn. Three generations of us stayed for a week in May half-term, age ranges from 4 to 69, and it was perfect for our needs. Our 4 year old was on the swing and playhouse most of the time!
The beds were really comfy, there is everything you need in the kitchen to cook a 3 course meal, and it is finished to a high standard. Lots of places to sit in the wraparound garden to make the most of the sun, and a gas BBQ (which we used a lot!).
Its in a beautiful area, in easy reach of lots of Devon attractions and a Tesco superstore in Collompton. We will be returning!

Our second stay at Walnut Barn. Great location and great property. Fordmore great for food. Bear Trails is local and great for adults and kids that like to get muddy. The Bakehouse in Cullompton was a great find this stay. We will be back for a third visit I am sure
Mr Hartley March 2023
We had a lovely holiday at Walnut Barn in March 2023. The space, layout and number of bedrooms was perfect for our multigenerational family of 6 adults and 3 children. The kitchen was really well equipped with lots of glasses, china and pans. Walnut Barn has everything you need. It was spotlessly clean which made everybody feel comfortable. The games room was a hit, as was the toys and games for the children. Walnut Barn is in a great location. We would all like to return, which is a great recommendation!

Walnut Barn was even better than the description in the brochure. A perfect setting for a family holiday. The five of us had a very luxurious Xmas break. Loved the woodburning stove and playing table tennis helped burn off those extra Yuletide calories! A big thank you to the owners and housekeeping team.

We're delighted to hear Walnut Barn was the perfect setting for your festive family holiday and what better way to burn off some calories than with a game of table tennis. We'll be sure to pass on your thanks to the owners and housekeeping team. We do hope you'll choose to return again in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support
Mrs Mitchell July 2022
Lovely property in good location for exploring beaches such as Sidmouth etc. Garden brilliant and enjoyed by all ages. Good layout for multi-generation family to stay.
Mrs Kingston July 2022
We had an amazing holiday in Walnut Barn! The space was perfect for our family of six adults and five children. The kitchen was great and very well equipped. The seating outside was fantastic and we were able to eat all our meals either at the front or back of the house. There’s lots to do in the area and several beaches around half an hour away. Plus some lovely walks/cycle rides straight from the house.
We would highly recommend Walnut Barn for a family holiday and would love to return!
Mrs Bodsworth June 2022
Walnut Barn is a fabulous property, which is very well equipped and has a good layout for a multi generational family or group (and our dogs). Although in a wonderfully rural position in the heart of the Devon countryside, good road links (once off the narrow lanes!) mean that the coast and nearby towns are easily accessible by car.
Mrs Clark April 2022
Amazing property. Well catered for. Lovely pub in walking distance (Keepers cottage) and local farm shop which also served brilliant food (Fordmore) won't be our last stay here ??
Mr Borrett April 2022
Very good stay, plenty of room, good kitchen equipment.
Mrs Purssglove March 2022
Lovely cottage, would and will be returning. Very clean and tidy, everything you could need while on holiday.
Miss Padham March 2022
We really enjoyed our long weekend at Walnut Barn. A few of our likes are below: ?Very clean ?Kitchen had a lot of utensils and cutlery ?Dishwasher and washing machine were helpful ?Decor was nice ?Enough seating for everyone ?Outside space was open and big which was great for the weather we had ?Enjoyed using the bbq and games room and fire pits ?Welcome pack with important details was a nice touch
There were a few things that could be improved, like the heating, instructions for the ovens/hob (as one was always too hot and the other too cold!) and the front gate but overall we had a great stay and would go back again!

Walnut Barn exceeded all of our expectations! It is amazing, great layout, lovely garden and games room too! We were two families of four celebrating New Year - there was loads of space for everyone to either spend time hanging out and having fun all together or to enjoy some quiet time individually. Walk to the local pub (The Keepers Inn) through the woods was nice, and great food too. Thank you for the delicious welcome treats on our arrival at the Barn. We will definitely be back!

My family and I (including one eight-month-old) stayed in Walnut Barn for ten days. It was excellent! The whole place was spotless, warm and very well equipped, inside and out. The beds were extremely comfortable and there are no streetlights or even any distant traffic noise to disturb one's sleep. We did a lot of cooking (there is a big Tesco just a few miles away) and even managed to use all three ovens for one meal. There are good walks to discover in the local woods and leafy lanes, and the property is well placed for driving to many of Devon's attractions. It's one of the very best places that we have ever stayed in!
