The cottage was a dream. It was a 5star home away from home, beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Anna and Chris are the ultimate hosts and nothing was any trouble. I would highly recommend Great Eckworthy The Barn, especially with your dogs as they are treated as well as we were. Would love to come back again. Carolyn and Martin

Having stayed in numerous holiday cottages over many years, The Barn was the most comfortable and and well-appointed, luxurious holiday cottage that we've ever stayed in. It offers everything we could have wished for and more, it certainly deserves it's 5-star rating. Anna and Chris are so welcoming and offer many hints as to eateries and local places of interest. For example, we enjoyed a great evening and meal at the Farmers Arms at Woolsery, an excellent pub restaurant, serving high quality food, with a good wine list. The idyllic rural location of The Barn has to be the icing on the cake. We will certainly be returning.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We're absolutely delighted that The Barn exceeded all of your prior experiences, Chris and Anna will be thrilled. We do hope that you will return for another amazing stay. Donna, Customer Support

The cottage is extremely well equipped and beautifully decorated and finished throughout. Excellent attention to detail; very private and secluded location. The hosts are charming and very helpful and on hand if needed but otherwise discrete.

The building itself was attractive and very well decorated. The materials were of high quality and the finish was excellent. The beds and linen were also to a high standard. Fantastic kitchen. The owners were very friendly and being on site could assist as needed. Whilst access to the property was not easy due to the narrow lanes that said it was worth it for the overall quality of the property itself. 5*

The perfect place for a relaxing stay. Beautiful setting, wonderful accommodation, everything you need and more. Wonderful Hosts, fab pub ,what more could you ask. Thank you for your care.

Great Eckworthy - The Barn is a delightful property, furnished to the highest standard and absolutely spotless. The site is lovely and the garden and hot tub are a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The owners, Anna and Chris, are a lovely couple...friendly, attentive and helpful in every way.

Excellent tranquil heaven with very helpful hosts.

Had a lovely stay at the barn. Very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Hot tub was a nice addition. Friendly and helpful hosts. Thankyou

Excellent top of the range luxury. Lovely hamper and everything you could need provided.

Absolutely loved our stay at Moonlit Barn. We all loved the garden, day and night - the stars have to be seen to be believed.

This was our first visit to North Devon but it won’t be our last. We loved the beach at Instow, great with a dog. RHS Rosemoor is beautiful and so is Lydford Gorge.

My only word is caution is regarding the roads, be prepared for narrow, twisting, bumpy single-track roads. The barn is secluded so if you have younger children or are not keen to drive everywhere, this probably isn't the place for you. But if you don’t mind exploring and are looking for peace, quiet and relaxing I couldn’t recommend Moonlit Barn enough.

We had a great stay at Moonlit Barn. The quality of the cottage was first class, with everything you need, along with those quality touches that show the hosts really know what customers need and want. The hosts were incredibly accomodating as well. It's also in a really nice location, close to amenities but far enough away in a very peaceful place. Highly recommended.

The quality of furniture, fixtures, fittings and equipment was exceptional high. The extra detailed touches of slippers to access the hot tub, luxury bath robes, secret garden, interior design and coordination themes, are just a few of the many attention to detail items that made staying at Moonlit Barn a wonderful experience. It is important to follow the directions provided to get to Moonlit Barn. The minor roads immediately surrounding the location are narrow and some have potholes, so it is easy to get lost. However, in the week we stayed, we only came across two other cars, which required exercising my reverse driving skills. Another upshot of staying at Moonlit Barn, every time we arrived at the location after a day out, it felt as euphoric as the first time of arriving on day 1. For those who cannot escape work or prefer to be social media savy, the wifi was fast and steady, no fluctuations or drop out. Although this review is 5 stars, if you want more, sit in th hot tub at night and with no light pollution there are millions.

This was the best UK Cottage break we have ever had, and we have had a lot! Excellent in every way - every need anticipated and satisfied to an exceptional standard. We were helped along by the hottest few days the UK has ever seen, but the cottage was a perfect cool escape when the heat got too much. The outdoor space was more than enough for our party of 5 + dog who all had a brilliant time. The facilities and quality of the cottage were exceptional. We picked up a lot of ideas for our own home furnishings from Moonlit Barn and look forward to stealing a few lovely design ideas! We will definitely be back - it was perfect.

Moonlit barn was perfect in every way. The cottage had everything we needed to make it a real home from home. Idyllic surroundings for us and our 2 dogs. Ending the day in the hot tub made it a truly relaxing holiday.

Moonlit barn is by far the best holiday stay we have stayed in , apart from being fabulously designed, it was immaculate and every little detail thought of , the owners have gone over and above , they added extra touches and treats , a real gem with the wow factor !
