"Wow !! Fabulous & tastefully designed bard conversion"
. Cosy and spacious. Eight adults and our two dogs totally enjoyed the indoor and outdoor luxury. New games room, BBQ house, amazing !! The hot tub was ready and heated , coffee sugar milk etc all ready for after a long journey. Good or bad weather does not affect this place just gives you a great bit of comfort. Can't thank you enough for the amount of effort you put into making the place so fabulous for us to share. Thank you
"A lovely spacious property for our family get-together."
The owners, Samantha & Jason, were very welcoming. The hot tub was very clean and most inviting for a chilly October evening. The quirky BBQ hut was fun.
"Lake View is beautiful inside and out - we returned this year as it’s not just a holiday let it is a holiday home with everything you could possibly need."
Location is perfect to explore North and South Devon along with Cornwall if you fancy venturing a bit further. Owners are lovely and on hand if needed and due to the layout you have complete privacy. Hot tub and bbq hut are a must and spotlessly clean - the owners are dog lovers and want people and their dogs to have the best time - we will be returning in 2024 as it really is a special place to stay - have stayed in various holiday cottages but Lake View is simply the best and knocks spots off of the rest so don’t hesitate to book it !!!
"Lakeview definitely has the wow factor, we loved everything about it."
From the fantastic warm welcome from Samantha, the provided bubbles, local eggs and milk to the comfy beds and delightful decor. Our highlights were the incredible hot tub and the magical fairy hut in which we had a cosy barbecue. No detail hasn't been beautiful executed. Thank you Samantha and Jason for a fabulous stay we would love to return.
"Lakeview has the " wow" factor."
We had a lovely welcome from Sam and Jason.The house is stunning and the location perfect.The interior is beautifully designed and very classy.The hot tub was wonderfully relaxing at night watching the stars with a glass of prosecco.The summer house reminded us of our times in Austria in the ski huts all cosy with little fairy lights. Plenty of places to visit...RHS Rosemoor..Quince honey Farm ( a session of bee keeping) Fingle Bridge and N.T.Castle Drogo and many others.Wonderful hols.
"The holiday property was lovely, well set out and spacious."
The owners left us some of their local produce which was a lovely touch. My niece's especially enjoyed the hot tub which was the highlight of the holiday. The only thing that would be a negative comment is the small country roads leading to and around the property, we found this quite a challenge in places, but once we were on the main A and B roads we we're fine. All in all, we can confirm that we had a lovely family holiday at the property and would like to thank the owners for such a warm welcome.
"Thank you for our lovely welcome and making us feel at home from the start, Samantha."
The thoughtfully left welcome goodies which included some for the dog, were really kind gesture along with the way the barn was set up. It was really comfortable and not at all cramped for 8 of us. We loved being able to sit and eat and play games both inside and outside. We called the bbq shed a “fairy house” and although we didn’t need to use it because the weather was fine, we did sit in it and have pre dinner drinks one night just so we could enjoy it. Very cosy and thoughtfully decorated and appointed. Most of us enjoyed the beautiful view whilst in the hot tub and our grandson loved the freedom of the adjoining field. We were able to have trips out each day with lots of places to visit with about an hour or so. A tiny even better would be to provide a few serving spoons as there were plenty of large serving dishes which were perfect for us. We had a super, family week and would have no hesitation in recommending the barn to others.
"Just returned from a week staying in this beautiful cottage."
The love and and attention to detail from Samantha and Jason has to be commended. This barn has been lovingly restored to a very high standard. We can not recommend it enough. It catered for a family of 8 with 3 generations perfectly, with beautifully decorated bedrooms and all en suite. We made use of the fantastic BBQ hut which enabled family time whilst the weather wasn’t too great. We loved the hot tub and the open plan living area. Crabbing in Apledore and visits to Exeter, Topsham and the quaint village of Clovelly were enjoyed. The owners live onsite and we’re extremely friendly and helpful. We had a lovely home cooked meal at the Mitre Inn (10 mins drive away).
"We had a lovely stay and family holiday at lake view."
It was a perfect place to relax and unwind and suited our mixed family group, including my 87 year old mum). The weather was very mixed but we still managed to enjoy the hot tub and bbq hut which was fun. Our dogs really enjoyed the garden and orchard at the cottage too - it was perfect for them to have a run around. One small point we all felt (probably because we spent more time at the cottage with my elderly mum) When the sun did come out it would have been nice to have some cushions for the outdoor dining chairs and maybe even an outdoor sofa? (there are two loungers but there were five of us). The open plan kitchen/diner/lounge was a gr8 social space and exactly what we wanted The three bedrooms we used were lovely - really comfy beds and all en-suite which was fab Samantha and Jason were really friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them - they both made us feel very welcome
"We had a wonderful stay."
They were incredibly accommodating to our family bbq and we enjoyed the rest of the week soaking in the hot tub and slumping in the sun. A very nice holiday home that we would totally recommend.
"Really comfortable, clean house in a beautiful peaceful setting."
Although we didn’t use the BBQ hut as we had amazing weather, it looks lovely! Hot tub was big and very clean. Rural location with lots of wildlife. Would definitely recommend
"Sam & Jason were wonderful hosts."
Lake View is absolutely gorgeous. If you are looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful setting then this is the place you need. We had a perfect stay (the weather helped as the sun was shining all week). The house is very well equipped and the decor is fabulous with a few quirky touches to make you smile. The hot tub was a treat and the BBQ hut was great fun. All in all one of the best properties we have stayed in.
"Spotlessly clean, great hosts, everything one could want, comfy beds, beautiful views would highly recommend ."
"Absolutely loved Lake view, it’s like home from home everything you need and ..."
Absolutely loved Lake view, it’s like home from home everything you need and more, beautifully finished and really handy having all the bedrooms with en-suite, love the open plan living kitchen and dining was great to get us all together, big bonus having the bbq hut too as weather wasn’t great when we were there, hosts are really nice very helpful and there if you need them, we will be returning in the future definitely recommend this property

Beautiful property with great facilities The bedrooms were so comfortable and well furnished We had a fab time in the hot tub and a fun evening in the barbecue hut Would highly recommend
"Lovely property and owners."
We had a fantastic Christmas and New Year
"Lake view is absolutely amazing, this is our second visit and we’re already planning our next trip back."
Jason and Samantha really have thought of everything and the house is so comfortable and luxurious. The BBQ hut is a new addition since our last visit and definitely didn’t disappoint, we spent a wet winters evening, cosied up inside cooking lovely food and it really was just the cherry on top of a perfect stay for us. thank you so much to you both- we can’t wait to come back again!
"Excellent property, wonderfully finished throughout."
Lovely location, despite the weather during our week. The barbecue hut was a major bonus, we loved using it. Loads of games, jigsaws, books all of which are brilliant when it's pouring down.
"Delightful barn conversion."
Excellent facilities, welcoming & attentive hosts . Fabulous area to unwind & relax with many walks & fishing lake near by. Highly recommended!
"The property is just perfect in every way - the owners are absolutely lovely - there if you need them otherwise totally private."
We have stayed in several holiday lets but this is by far one of the best we have stayed in as it’s so homely and has everything you need. The only fault if you could call it that was having to leave!!! Would highly recommend to anyone considering booking here - ideal for couples or families and lots of places to visit locally - it really is a beautiful place to stay.
"The property is outstanding, my family and I had a wonderful stay."
The Lake View is spacious, comfortable and has all the amenities you need. We loved the jacuzzi with beautiful views even on a rainy day and the wonderful BBQ hut at the end of the garden. Lake View is set in beautiful countryside but easy access to local shops. Would definitely stay here again.
"Owners Samantha and Jason were wonderful - very welcoming and helpful."
Cottage itself and surroundings are amazing would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a tranquil getaway. Cottage has been done to the highest standard and every little detail has been considered. Definitely a 10/10!
"Samantha is an amazing host."
She was super friendly and helpful. The barn is beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly want for a great stay. There isn't anything she hasn't thought about, even a torch in the bedside draw incase there is a power cut. The barn was spotless and very comfortable. Many thanks
"We had a wonderful stay, barbcue hut was a real hit and the property is beautifully done."
"A beautiful house with wonderful facilities."
The owners had thought of everything, and were so friendly and helpful. We had a marvellous week and can't wait to come back!
"An absolutely amazing place to stay."
The cottage is beautiful, Samantha and Jason have thought of everything to make your stay so comfortable. We had such a peaceful week, loved the hot tub and the bbq shack is very cute! It was so cosy doing s’mores one night. We will be returning!! Thank you Samantha and Jason for being so welcoming and providing an outstanding place to stay. Charlotte, Steve and Gang
"We absolutely loved Lake View, the location was so peaceful with wonderful views, and the property had everything we and our dog needed."
We found it very user friendly, and soon settled in. The bbq hut was amazing and the hot tub was enjoyed everyday. Samantha and Jason were great hosts, Samantha welcomed us as soon as we arrived and showed us round, she was super friendly and helpful and always on hand should we need anything. We would definitely recommend the property and will be returning.
"Wow wow wow!"
Fabulous family week spent enjoying a beautiful home. The hosts couldn’t be more accommodating and welcoming. With all generations of our family we made the most of the wonderful Hot Tub and state of the Art BBQ Hut. Between us we reached Torquay, Exmouth, Topsham, Tiverton, Appledore, Instow as well as Woolacombe and Ilfracombe also two National Trust Properties. Fab week, to be recommended.
"Fantastic home, lovely hot tub, very rural."
Hosts extremely helpful. A beautiful place to stay. New BBQ hut is amazing!! Thank you Samantha and Jason
"We all had such a wonderful time here celebrating my daughters hen party."
My daughter loves the countryside and she said that we could not have chosen anywhere better for her. The property is beautiful throughout, spotlessly clean and the attention to detail was appreciated by us all. The 4 bedrooms are amazing, all with en-suites. The hot tub was lovely and the BBQ hut was a magical experience. The owners Samatha and Jason are warm and welcoming and the treats supplied were so thoughtful and kind. The surrounding area is idyllic. We will definitely be booking to come back here again. Thank you so much for everything

"A fabulous holiday home , absolutely the best I have rented which is a lot over the years."
This barn conversation is spacious, extremely well finished with great attention to detail and fully equipped with everything your likely to need. The hot tub and BBQ hut are a great way to enjoy garden and views.
"Lake View is a really wonderful property with all the amenities you need, plus more, for a fantastic holiday."
Thoughtful touches everywhere, such as providing bath robes for the hot tub. The bbq hut is brilliant and the hot tub was well utilised, perfect to sit and spot a shooting star from! The owners, Jason and Samantha, are delightful and supremely helpful. I cannot speak highly enough of this cottage!
"A fabulous barn in a beautiful setting, everything you could possibly wish for, spotlessly clean, peaceful and well equipped."
Samantha & Jason were very helpful but discreet also. We were very sad to leave and look forward to going back.
"A truly stunning stay with gorgeous hosts."
Thank you for your flexibility and we cannot wait to return!
"Property was clean and very comfortable."
Facilities are well thought and well presented. Property is remotely situated so very quiet. Owners are friendly and welcoming. Thoroughly recommended
"We had a 3 night stay at Lake View to celebrate 3 family birthdays."
What an amazing place. From the warm welcome on arrival and including for the dogs to the fabulous accommodation, we couldn't have asked for more. There was ample parking for 3 large cars. The kitchen was very well equipped with lots of nice touches. Pretty Jars of tea, coffee, dog treats etc, bottle of prosecco in the wine cooler and eggs and milk in the huge American style fridge freezer. 2 stairgates and high chair for the baby of the family were gratefully used. We enjoyed using the very large dining room table for buffets and games. Very comfortable sitting area with large flat screen TV with Sky, Netflix etc. Massive super king suite on the ground floor with very useful utility room adjoining with everything needed to launder the dirty dog towels and clothes. A very useful wet room by the front door to shower the dogs. Upstairs, 3 further en suite bedrooms. All the bathrooms were high end and beautiful. The beds were so comfortable and all the accessories and finishing touches were lovely. It felt like we were in a very luxurious, high end hotel. There were even toiletries left for us and ample, soft towels. The hot tub was amazing and got well used. We had a couple of pub lunches and dog walks which were great. I could go on and on singing the praises of this wonderful, rural, idyllic retreat and would highly recommend.
"Lake view cottage is wonderful."
We stayed for Christmas and New Year 21/22 and we were the very first people to stay in the house. Jason and Samantha have spent the last 2 years converting the barn into a rental property and have spared no expense in creating a brilliant home. We've rented lots of rental houses and have our own house in the Luberon but this was one of the most luxuriously furnished houses we've stayed in. They've thought of every last detail from a hot shower to wash the dogs to hotel-like soap and shampoo left for every guest to a really well equipped kitchen... we really couldn't fault it. We were 8 adults (our grown up family, their partners and dogs) and it felt perfect in size even though we were inside as it rained rather a lot! The Jacuzzi is brand new - as is everything else - and monster size. The owners have two dogs and are very dog friendly - with a mass of rugs available to protect any furniture. The house faces fields and feels v private with is own enclosed garden - the owners are in a separate house behind the barn but leave their renters entirely to themselves. In the case of issues, they couldn't be more friendly and helpful. It's a great area between Exmoor and Dartmoor: we went on lovely walks to both and the sea is about an hour away. We played golf on two fun courses. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lake View; it really is a great house
