Lovely garden with lots of ducks,geese,dogs and horses to watch.

Mrs Cusworth, Maidstone, May 2012
Our hosts at The Haybarn were charming and very helpful. We appreciated the lack of traffic noise and no light pollution at night. Good fields that were open to public access, and we enjoyed the contrast in scenery between Devon and the East Coast area.
Mr Flitney, Exeter, March 2012
The property has been renovated beautifully. A well equipped kitchen and a lovely little garden, it was nice to sit on the covered patio watching the ducks and chickens. The situation is excellent and it's wonderfully quiet. The dinner we had at the Windmill Inn was superb!
