  • "We had a lovely time at The Threshing Barn."

    The accommodation was spacious and clean with a wonderful bit of local land to explore. Our hosts made us feel really welcome and the location was within a mile of the A30, so access to Devon coasts both north and south was particularly easy. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others and hopefully we will return shortly.

  • "Wonderful stay at the Threshing Barn."

    Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Large space for two people with lots of onsite extra facilities to ensure you really relax and enjoy your break. Lloyd and Lisle were very friendly and kindly provided a bottle of Prosecco and the world's finest Lemon Drizzle Cake, which went down very well. Would happily recommend this property and would love to rebook in the future.

  • "We loved staying at The Threshing Barn."

    Perfect location for us to meet friends in North and South Devon and for walks on Dartmoor. We had a warm and friendly welcome from Lloyd and Lisle. The barn had everything we needed and with the added bonus of pool, sauna and table football. I’m sure we’ll be back!

    Lisle and Lloyd very welcoming and informative - and the lemon cake and prosecco a lovely surprise!. The area is ideal for visiting both the North and South coast as well as being on the doorstep of the beautiful Dartmoor. The Threshing Barn had everything anyone would need and would recommend it to anyone.

    It is easy to access Dartmoor and the Devon coats, North and South. Also very easy to get into North Cornwall if wanted.

  • "The accommodation was very spacious, rustic and warming, situated on grounds of greenery and beautiful landscape views."

    We were greated and welcomed and given all the info we needed aswell as being told there was a folder inside that covered extra info and local attractions. Such a small world, as we chatted we came to realise that the owner had attended the same school as our son, whats the chances when we live 3 hours from Devon. Lol A fantastic kitchen space that we thoroughly utilised with many a romantic candle lit meal and a bottle of wine. There are many light fixings and light switches scattered about, so ambient lighting can be modified much to your liking. Netflix and chill on the smart TV with ice cream from the tuck shop after a session in the sauna was very pleasant. We were a 10min drive away from Oakhampton Castle that sits beside the river where we set up a picnic after sightseeing the ruins. We genuinely had a lovely stay at the Threshold Barn and cant see any reason why we wouldn't return for more, we both are already missing our home from home comfort and experience. What a lovely break away, thanks much and we wish you both the very best for your future and business. Cheers Lloyd and Lisle. Best wishes Steve & Ann
