  • "Lovely little barn in a great location near to some lovely beaches such as south milton, hope cove etc."

    Barn is very well laid out and even with four of us and a dog it felt like there was plenty of space. The drive into the parking area is tight but we have a long wheel base campervan which we parked fine. Owner was lovely and helped with all our requirements which was very much appreciated.

    Thank you for your positive comments and I am so pleased that the family had such a great week at Torrings Barn. We hope to welcome you here again. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage - warm and cosy and perfect for a winter break."

    Quiet and peaceful location with walks from the front door. The complimentary goodies were very much appreciated too.

  • "A wonderful barn conversion which offered everything required for a peaceful holiday."

    Comfy beds, well provided kitchen and great shower. What more could you want. Minor issue with the internet but what can you expect in a relatively remote valley in Devon. Located close to some lovely towns and villages along with the splendors of Dartmoor. It was great to have the owners next door who helped with a rather unexpected problem we experienced whist staying.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We're pleased to say that Torrings Barn now has a new broadband connection, which should rectify any issues with the Wifi. Property Owner

  • "A cosy location that felt remote but in good reach of local attractions and walks."

    The advertised broadband/wifi was not working and we did not know about this until we arrived, making it difficult to check the weather and tide times. I agree with previous comments that the kitchen could have done with another saucepan, more teaspoons and tablespoons, but we coped!

    Thank you for your feedback. Your comments about the kitchen equipment have been duly noted. We apologise for the issues that occurred with the Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the strength and speed of the broadband, especially somewhere as remote as Torrings Barn. We hope these issues did not impact on your stay too much. UPDATE: We're pleased to say that Torrings Barn now has a new broadband connection, which should rectify any issues with the Wifi. Property Owner

  • "Overall the accommodation was clean and tidy."

    The kitchen could have done with a few extra’s e.g pint glasses, more pans and more teaspoons. The freezer was full of ice and made it unuseable. Duvets were far too thick for the summer months. There was literally nothing around within walking distance so if you are wanting a peaceful break away then this is perfect.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owners work hard to have a well equipped kitchen but this has been noted in a discussion with them to look at the inventory and replenish over the winter months. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your time at Torrings Barn. Property Owner

  • "Poorly equipped kitchen wise."

    Drive unweeded and untidy. Owners boat trailer left in property parking area made parking and turning the car round very very difficult. Patio completely unwelcoming, so dreary and drab did to want to sit there. No hanging baskets etc. Property completely unloved. Owners noisy slamming doors all evening to storage shed attached to Barn Cottage

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. We feel the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would expect. We have arranged for our gardener to visit and attend to the points you have mentioned, and we do currently have flowering plants on the patio. Property Owner

    Lovely, quiet location and helpful hosts. Just what the doctor ordered.

  • "We were there in a wet May 2021 which could explain why the patio furniture was not ready for use."

    We would expect this to be clean and ready as weather improves and hospitality sector gets back to normal.

  • "Owners very helpful, cottage in good location for exploring the area."

    Whilst being next door to the owners house there is no sense of being 'overlooked'. Plenty of good restaurants and beaches nearby, if only someone would open a pub serving food a walk away from the cottage it would be heaven

  • "Rachel and Chris were very good, friendly but professional hosts."

    The Barn had lovely touches that did not go un noticed. Flowers and prosseco awaited us. The sheets and fittings were of high quality. It was spotlessly clean and we felt safe in theses uncertain times of the pandemic. Rachel was scrupulous in following guidelines.

  • "Lovely cottage, which is well presented and very comfortable."

    As per the description, it has a relatively small space downstairs coupled with access to patio only (rather than wider garden), which we found challenging with two energetic younger children. Probably better suited to adults or those with one child / older children. Fantastic location for exploring South Devon. Would recommend.

  • "A pleasant small cottage, in a lovely location."

    To improve the overall experience the shower basin needs to have the mastic replaced as this was discoloured badly with mould. Otherwise it was a lovely holiday let.

    The owners are delighted that you enjoyed the cottage and location. During a busy season it is difficult to complete maintenance work but the shower mastic will be replaced in the closed season. Property Owner

The property

Converted from a little barn next to the owner's’ house in a minute farming hamlet within a mile of Aveton Gifford is this sweet cottage.

Set in lovely countryside and with a bright interior with relaxing colours and wood floors, it is relaxing accommodation for a small family or couples.

Head up the steps into your sitting room with a handy dining area and TV.

Off this is the efficient kitchen, well equipped and leading you to your two comfortable bedrooms.

Outside you can sit out and enjoy alfresco lunches and suppers, perhaps taking advantage of the ready meals available, on your sunny terrace with a table and chairs.

You also have your own parking area where you can leave your canoes and kayaks, useful if you are going to enjoy paddling along the beautiful River Avon or along the stunning coastline.

This is a particularly lovely stretch of the South Devon coast with excellent surfing and sandcastling beaches at Bantham and Bigbury-on-Sea and lots of rock pooling havens for whiling away the hours.

The South West Coast Path is a brilliant route for walkers, providing fantastic views and pretty villages to stop off in for a little refreshment.

Kingsbridge is an interesting old town with interesting shops to browse and a range of eateries.

Torrings Barn is a comfortable and welcoming cottage for exploring the pretty South Hams and recharging your energy levels.
