  • "This Barn conversion is a true delight!"

    The location on the edge of Dartmoor was perfect for exploring the local area. The accommodation was of an excellent standard. Perfectly clean and fitted out to a very high standard. Rooms are all spacious and fitted out perfectly. The area was very peaceful with beautiful views. The front garden was lovely and attracted local wildlife. Couldn’t fault anything and would recommend it to others quite happily!

  • "Beautifully furnished and well presented property."

    The property was very clean with everything you could possibly need and the additional treats upon arrival were very welcome! Also well positioned for exploring the surrounding area with lots of walks and cosy pubs nearby.

  • "May Blossom Barn is exceedingly well presented with everything provided that you could possibly require for your stay."

    The view across the countryside is lovely. Many parts of Dartmoor is only a short drive away and likewise the coastal towns are easily accessible from the property. The local store in Lustleigh is an amazing little shop that sells a variety of provisions. Thank you Louise and Neil, all four of us had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

  • "Had updated Sykes with a fourth person prior to holiday commencing."

    This person was staying two nights, one either end of our confirmed one week stay. This also told to Sykes. The property owner was just finishing preparing beds when we arrived about 15:45. Entry was from 16:00. When he left he telephoned Sykes to inform them we had a young child with us and suspected there were five people staying (4 person property). Not pleasant to be assumed dishonest. Young child was my early twenties grandaughter who had been put on the list as the fourth person. Sykes called with accusary tone and questioning which felt very unnecessary. Owner could have asked us himself at the time of our introducing ourselves prior to him leaving. Owner assumed grandaughter younger (because of her looks/dress?) and two people yet to arrive regardless of our telling him fourth person was still travelling from south east to join us. Sykes key pad number was not updated on their information supplied to us and had difficulty entering the property. Had to trouble the owner (wife) who gave correct key code. Property situated on bend of main road, not good for walking but excellent for exploring area by car. Required extra vigilance when entering/leaving driveway especially for right hand turn. Two car parking next to sloping area with bins. Very tight and fought with hedging to get around car to enter/exit gate. We had one medium and one small car. Property was nicely done, clean, comfortable with everything well thought through. Personally we found ticking clocks irritating when trying to relax although others may find it quaint.
