Accommodation was warm and comfortable for all our needs. Easy to get to and good for links to all parts of Devon. Nice and peaceful, good wifi, only downside was no network service. Tried the local pub for a meal and was not disappointed with the quality of the food. Would we stay here again, of course we would. many thanks to the hospitality given by he owners.

It is an excellent base, with lots of lovely places to explore ( the leaflet draw was well used - thank you) We enjoyed hopping on and off the train too. All in all a very lovely holiday in a cracking part of the country. thank you for letting us stay :-) Reviewed by Geraldine5.0★Oct 2023 "Great stay , very clean and tidy , great location ." would certainly recommend Reviewed by William5.0★Oct 2023 "We really enjoyed our stay ." The bath with shower over was a bit of a problem to negotiate for any one with arthritis in the knee .I think that should be mentioned but other than that was a lovely place to stay .we only meet Julie once but she was friendly and welcoming . Reviewed by Annette4.1★Sep 2023 "The Cider Barn is very comfortable and well laid out." The facilities were very good, Julie and Phil seem to have thought of everything to welcome us and make our stay memorable. We had torrential rain most of the week and so we were limited as to where to go. We had planned on going to the local nature reserves but Dawlish in particular, was affected by flooding. We would highly recommend Shaldon Zoo - rare breeds. The staff are very helpful and the highlight was seeing the Margay and her kitten. Powderham Castle is a must if you have children. Jan & Co.

The Barn is in a beautiful setting in the countryside, with the opportunity to have a walk around the farm and the most wonderful wooded area and stream, my boys were in their element. The Barn itself is very comfortable, quiet and with everything you need for a stay. It is also one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed, everything was gleaming when we arrived! Would highly recommend anyone to stay here, we enjoyed so much we have booked again for Easter!! Reviewed by Alex5.0★Oct 2020 "Julie and Phil, the owners, were welcoming and helpful." We settled into this quiet and remote part of Devon very quickly and enjoyed a relaxing two week October stay. The property is on a narrow lane with almost no passing traffic and suffers with little or no light or noise pollution. Peaceful, as we like it. Broadband wifi is available but due to bandwidth limitations is very unreliable including for catch-up TV. Probably not unusual in a location like this but a nuisance if you rely on the internet whilst away. We were mostly without a Vodafone signal too. Internet and phone connections apart we had a great stay and highly recommend the Cider Barn. Reviewed by Paul5.0★Oct 2020 "The lane leading up to the barn is narrow so you have to be very careful going up." The nearest supermarket is about a 10- 15 min drive which was okay, plenty to see and do. Reviewed by Helen5.0★Aug 2020 "Really lovely place to stay." Cider Barn spotless, every thing we needed.

Shame the weather was a bit dismal. Reviewed by Roger & Linda5.0★Jun 2017 "This has to be one of the best cottages we have stayed in." The cottage was beautiful, clean and cosy with everything needed for a stay. The outside space with table and chairs would be lovely in the summer and parking was good. The owner's were welcoming and friendly without being intrusive even going as far as to phone us to say that the main road was closed due to an accident but to ignore the signs because the accident was beyond the entrance to the cottage. We hope to return. We are used to one lane roads but a warning in the info of the one lane road with bends leading from the main road to the cottage might be helpful to someone who isn't aware of how they work and what to do if you meet someone coming the opposite way.
