  • "Thank you to the owners of this property for such a wonderful stay."

    We were celebrating a surprise 30th weekend away with family and friends, which also included three dogs and three children. The house was absolutely perfect as it allows plenty of space for entertaining in the main living areas as well as excellent bedroom sizes. The house is presented really well and the beds are extremely comfortable! We loved every second of our stay in the house and although the owners are nearby, they were very respectful and were in no way intrusive. They were always on hand if we needed anything and made our stay very comfortable and relaxing! The outside space was excellent with plenty of parking, a lovely size garden which overlooks beautiful green space. We loved the fact that the garden was fully enclosed meaning our dogs and kids were all very safe and secure. The property had everything we needed for a comfortable stay including iron, ironing board, high chair, travel cot etc. The property is set in a beautiful location and within 10 minutes drive is the small town centre and a large Tesco supermarket. Everything about our stay was perfect, waking up to the gorgeous view and being cosy by the wood burner in the evening, it was perfect.

  • "Wonderful property : four generations of our family came together over the new year period, for my 89 year old father who has mobility challenges, the accessible room was brilliant ( we did take our own shower seat, for anyone to whom this is important)."

    Our 4 (24-34years old) children plus partners used the games room every evening, (and childhood rivalries still exist!). Everybody having their own en-suites was fantastic and the communal room a joy for family meals. The kitchen was very well stocked and the bedding excellent, the secure garden for the dogs was a real bonus. 11 adults, a baby & 3 dogs had a lovely time and memories were made. This property provided everything we needed and much more.

  • "We had an awesome time at The Hay Loft!"

    The owners clearly put a lot of thought into how to accommodate large groups, we were particularly impressed with each room being fitted with modern ensuite bathrooms and we really enjoyed the large communal space with a large dining table and log burner to make the place feel cosy. It's a pity the weather was bad as the garden and patio would have added even more to the trip. Many thanks to Stuart for being so accommodating and allowing total flexibility during the stay!

  • "The Hayloft was perfect for our holiday."

    It is spacious enough for a large group, yet the owners have managed to make it homely. The beds are comfortable, with good quality linen and towels, and the kitchen is really well-equipped. The views are wonderful, we enjoyed looking around the owners' organic edible flower gardens, and there is plenty to do do locally.

  • "Very comfortable property."

    We all had an amazing family break and particularly enjoyed the play room. Thanks to Stuart for making us so welcome at his wonderful holiday barn.

    Mr WealeOct 2021

  • "We have stayed in this property before - it was excellent then and continues to be so."

    The hosts are very welcoming but never intrusive. It's a great place to stay.

    Mrs RobertsonSep 2021

  • "Owners very welcoming and friendly but not intrusive."

    This property was ideal for the six of us giving us each a bedroom and en-suite facilities. The area around is beautiful, stunning views and sunsets from the property. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday experience. Thank you.

    Mrs MetcalfeSep 2021

  • "The Hayloft was a great property in a lovely location."

    It’s was fully equipped for a large family. A great home for families to get together. We had a lovely time. The owners are lovely and always happy to help.

    Mrs RussellAug 2021

  • "We were a family group with 3 dogs, 7 adults and a 1 year old baby - the house was perfect for all of us."

    The garden is secure so the dogs were able to be outside and it was flat and well kept so our granddaughter could walk around without tripping. The games room was perfect for pre dinner games and for the rainy days. The house was well equipped throughout and with all kitchen equipment you could need if you like to cook on holiday, plenty of crockery, glassware, cutlery and serving platters and well kept, there is a washing machine and tumble dryer if you need them and inside and outside drying lines ( perfect for rainy England) and there are stair gates top and bottom to the mezzanine, a travel cot and bedding, high chair and baby cutlery was all provided on request, the beds were comfy and the bed linen and towels good quality and the dressing gowns were a nice touch. The owners were on hand if needed but not intrusive and friendly and welcoming- Stuart even strimmed the path into the orchard to enable us to walk the dogs first thing before going out properly. The flower salad was amazing. All in all none of us had a bad word to say about the house, grounds or equipment. We were all sad to leave.

    Mrs BrownJun 2021

  • "A beautiful, well equipped accommodation in a peaceful corner of Devon."

    Plenty of space for 12 people. As our party had two motorised wheelchair users, access was important. This was not an issue as one bedroom had level access to the patio and all ground floor facilities, with an en suite that had a wheel in shower with shower stool if needed. ( no hoists or specialist beds but this wasn't a problem for us as we take portable equipment). The owners are amazingly accommodating and welcoming.

This spacious house converted from a barn is situated adjacent to the owners' farmhouse around a courtyard on a five acre smallholding 1½ miles from Kentisbeare and Cullompton.

The kitchen area is well equipped with a modern range style cooker, plus a dining area.

Outside, wander freely over the smallholding, where fresh edible flowers grow is available, to enjoy the tranquil views, or relax in your enclosed lawn garden with outdoor furniture and a barbecue.

On the edge of the Blackdown Hills, this is lovely countryside for walking or cycling the many public paths.
