  • "QUOIT BARN was excellent."

    It had everything you needed including excellent dog walks. CHARLIE loved the Paddock.Linda and Derek were the perfect hosts and answered all are queries. The Wood Burner really warmed up the Cottage and was most homely sat around at night. Cottage in excellent location near to Tiverton.Sourh Molton,Bampton and Dulverton,all lovely places to explore. Stoodleigh Inn was most friendly and well worth a visit plus on the doorstep. Cannot speak more highly of this property and will certainly visit again in near future.

  • "We struggled to understand the workings of the cooker, after a long day travelling it took forever, but , that was just a glitch."

    Very bright and airy, maybe a baking tray would have been helpful but it didn't take away from the setting

    Thank you for your feedback. We have taken your comments on board and do hope to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "It was a very clean and equipped property with everything you could need to make your stay enjoyable."

    The owners were always on hand to help if you needed anything .Our only issue was the secure garden ,our little jack russell juke managed to escape a couple of times ,if the lower part of the fence was like the upper part there would have been no problem.

  • "We had a very comfortable stay here."

    Linda and Roger are lovely, very welcoming and helpful. We very much enjoyed our basket of goodies left for us. The dogs made good use of the paddock area. We did manage to sit out on the patio in the sun one afternoon as the weather was fairly kind to us.

  • "As per listing, everything up to expectations."

    Comfortable barn conversion. Unfortunately weather not very good so didn’t try the walks. Welcome pack, extremely nice lemon cake and biscuits. Homemade marmalade superb. Just one tiny requirement perhaps a mirror and chair where I could put on my makeup and do my hair, but I managed ok.

  • "The barn and the owners were lovely."

    Everything would be given 5 star if the outside space had been correctly described. We had 2 dogs with us and we had to put them on leads to go out. The courtyard wasn't secure however the owners put round some chicken wire when we complained but a bit was missed. The so called "paddock" was a patch of grass with paths which took about 3 minutes to walk round ( we expected a field) and the 'woodland walk" also took about 3 minutes. Both of these facilities have been exaggerated and we wouldn't have gone there if we knew about the outside space. The barn itself was beautiful. Thankyou to the lovely owners for making us so welcome. Freda and Ros .

    Thank you very much for taking the time to comment, we’re delighted to know you had a good holiday and we’re so pleased to know you felt the barn was lovely. We’re sorry though to hear you felt the outside space was exaggerated. The ‘paddock’ is a great facility for pet owners to use being only a few yards from the barn but we do agree it isn’t large which is why it’s described as a paddock rather than large field. To help reassure future visitors we’ll look to get a photograph of the space added to the website as soon as we can so that everyone knows what to expect. We’re happy that you had a good holiday overall and we do hope we’ll see you again in future! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage."

    Loved our stay which was just what we wanted. Step off the world for a while and leaving the timetable behind. Excellent base to travel out and about if that's what you want to do and even though we had fantastic weather, it would be really cosy in winter to.

    Extraordinary kitchen equipment. (Ever-Hot-Cooking is not easy to use! 118 page instruction-book with the text: "It will need several days to find out the correct settings for your cooking activities."). Very clean rooms and furnitures. Very friendly hosts Linda and Roger. Easy handling for access. Both sleeping rooms with ensuite-shower-bath are very comfortable. We used the cottage as base for our trips into Devon and to the coast line.

  • "We had a wonderful week at Quoit X Barn."

    Beautiful accommodation in a very peaceful and tranquil setting. Lots of nice walks in the vicinity and also further afield in Exmoor and surrounding areas. The Barn was so comfortable with excellent amenities and a lovely unexpected welcome basket. The hosts were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Bampton is only a few miles drive and has some very nice pubs, cafes, bakery and two small spa supermarkets. The pub two minutes walk from the Barn is very friendly and serves meals, check opening time’s first though. The Doggy Paddock adjacent to the accommodation was ideal as it allowed our dog to be off the lead. We would recommend the Barn to anyone who is looking for a beautiful quiet retreat. We certainly hope to return in the near future.

    Equipped and a really lovely welcome basket, thank you. The paddock was a great asset for the dogs - especially the puppy. Tarr Steps, Bampton and Dulverton were lovely places to visit. Thank you for making us so welcome - would hope to come again
