  • "This cottage is in a great location with many places to visit a short car journey away."

    It was one of the cleanest and well equipped cottages we have stayed in. Only thing that would have been a great help for us with a toddler would have been a high chair and stair gate as the property has the living room upstairs, we ended up taking our own high chair and placing two chairs in front of the stairs. Apart from that a great property and we would recommend it to anyone.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments and we are very happy you enjoyed your stay at our barn. We always appreciate suggestions and will look into the possibility of stair gates and a high chair. Property Owner

  • "This was our second visit to Crosscombe Barn and we loved it just as much the second time!"

    The views are spectacular, the kitchen well-equipped, the bedrooms comfortable and the lounge with its log-burner warm and cosy. The barn is beautiful, with plenty of space for our family of four, and perfectly placed for exploring the gorgeous scenery and beaches of the South Hams. We hope to be back soon!

    We are so glad you had a lovely holiday and thank you for the great feedback. Kind regards Nick and Suzanne. Property Owner

  • "Crosscombe Barn is ideally situated for exploring South Hams with all its beautiful river estuaries and lovely beaches."

    There are several National Trust houses and woods nearby to explore and historic Plymouth is within easy reach. We particularly enjoyed a cruise on the Dart and discovering scenic Salcombe and quaint Totnes. The barn itself is spacious and very comfortably equipped with quality furniture and fittings, including a desk with lots of little extras. There is extensive kitchen and dining equipment and everything we could possibly want and more for a self catering holiday was provided. Overall, it is a warm and welcoming individual character home with plenty of room for 6 guests. The garden is a delightful sun trap and was full of late summer flowers during our visit. The provision of a small kitchen in the utility room was an added bonus - it is an upside down house so it saved the legs when making drinks and snacks. The village shop is well stocked but Kingsbridge is only 10 minutes away. We would recommend the local garden centre and farm shop for excellent lunches and a bit of browsing. The Avon valley is an excellent walking area with lots of wildlife. The barn is in a quiet corner of Loddiswell and so we had a very peaceful and restful stay. The views across the hills were a joy to view from the lounge window seat. We thoroughly recommend this property and thank the owners for their thoughtfulness.

  • "Crosscombe Barn is stunning!"

    Set in the quiet village of Loddiswell, it’s a good location (close to Kingsbridge, Salcombe and the beaches). The Barn is beautifully and very tastefully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need (a home away from home). I couldn’t recommend this more, we can’t wait to return.

  • "Such a comfortable, well equipped house within a short drive of lovely beaches and walks."

    The country lanes are a test of driving skills. Not many facilities in the village itself.
