Previous visitors' comments about Hardstone Barn:
The homeliness of the place meant we felt very relaxed, the river nearby was great and would recommend it to anyone. We will definitely go again.
Mrs Hutson, Burton-on-Trent, September 2012
There was a nice relaxing feel about the whole place and it had a lovely large lounge. There was plenty of outside access to the owner's field and river.
Mrs Westacott, Poole, March 2012
Location was fantastic and the communal living space of hardstone barn EASILY accommodated 10 adults and two infants. Lovely to have the wood burner ready to go and tea/coffee provided was a welcome addition after a long journey!
Mrs Dudley, Blandford Forum, March 2012
Ideal property for a large family - we were 4 adults, 3 teenagers and 2 children and the barn catered for us very well. The dining and living areas are the heart of this property but we also enjoyed unreserved access to the extensive grounds and river walk. The owners were friendly and approachable and made us feel welcome. We would be happy to return here to explore more of the fine Dartmoor countryside.
