  • "Lovely stay thanks."

  • "The barn was beautiful, it is so well designed and laid out."

    We were there during some storms and we felt cosy and secure inside, we didn’t even need the heating on! The layout feels spacious and light with lovely windows and high ceilings. We had everything we needed and it was spotless. Good beds and nice shower! The owners were friendly when we saw them but were not intrusive; when we had a small problem they sorted it immediately. There were lovely beaches and places to visit but the roads in this part of Devon are quite challenging-very narrow with high sides and not many passing places. But that’s Devon!

  • "General cleanliness was poor on arrival including not only cobwebs but also hairs and staining on the shower tray."

    Wi-Fi information poor and not known by your staff on initial phone call nor on 2nd call to office. After 3 phone calls to your office it was arranged for a cleaner to visit who on arrival was very pleasant and did an excellent job including being able to advise correct code for wi-fi! Previous advice was to check router but no router visible! Vacuum cleaner was full of previous occupant(s) dust and debris whilst the washing machine was mouldy where drum attached to casing. Uncomfortable sofa and mattress of king size could do with upgrade. It is a shame that we found the above negatives as the property is located in a lovely and peaceful part of the coutryside.

    We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and liked the location of Oak Barn. Thank you for the time taken to leave your feedback. We have now included additional instructions for the Wi-Fi and the office has these instructions. As you will appreciate, we work very hard with our housekeepers to ensure high standards of cleanliness are maintained and the housekeeper visited at your request to ensure the property was presented to your satisfaction.The weekly deep clean will be checked as a matter of course. We are surprised to read your comments regarding the washing machine drum, sofa and king-size mattress as these were all new at the start of the season and are of good quality. Nevertheless we do recognise there are personal preferences regarding mattresses and sofas and we will endeavour to ensure they are not too firm. Property Owner

About the location


Salcombe 5 miles; Bantham 5 miles; Dartmouth 12 miles; Totnes 13 miles; Plymouth 20 miles.

The busy little town of Kingsbridge lies at the head of a marine estuary in the attractive South Hams area of South Devon. Kingsbridge is home to a range of lovely independent shops and coffee shops, as well as a local cinema and an award-winning pub. During the summer season there are river excursions to Salcombe to see the abundant wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast. Visitors can take a walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off Fore Street or visit the Shambles in Totnes, an Elizabethan market arcade. Around the South Hams area there are picturesque ports, such as Dartmouth and Salcombe, together with sandy beaches at Blackpool Sands near Stoke Fleming and the two sandy beaches at Thurlestone. There are a host of small attractive villages in South Hams offering interesting pubs, local farm produce shops and pretty rows of cottages, plus further afield the waterfront city of Plymouth is a vibrant centre housing the National Marine Aquarium, historic Barbican Quay and plenty of night life, including theatres, restaurants and bars. Kingsbridge can be easily reached by train to Totnes and then a local bus service which will take you to Kingsbridge town centre.
