  • "We had a fabulous stay and the house and garden are wonderful."

    The only things we could say would improve would have been use of the tumble dryer as having little ones there was a couple of accidents and to have clothing drying around was ok but not ideal. Also the quality of the bedding for such a lovely house could have been better and was slightly disappointing. But we had a lovely stay and the location and space of the property were perfect.

    I'm very happy you had a fabulous stay, it was lovely to meet you all be it briefly. If I may respond to your thoughtful comments. The house has a large Minky Sure Grip indoor airer, which works very well in the conservatory an ideal place for towels from the beach (or pool) to dry. In the day this space is very warm and sunny, an ideal space out of the way to dry all items. The bed linen has been thoughtfully chosen to suit the decor of each beautiful bedroom, I'm so sorry if you felt slightly disappointed in any way, I'm very grateful for your feedback, I will review the bed linen provided in each bedroom, possibly we fell short in some way. Thank you for staying at Barnsley House and for taking the time to write this lovely review, my very best wishes to you. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful house with all the amenities available."

    Large enough to not feel crowded with our large group, we catered in and enjoyed the long dining table. The staircase stood out as we entered, with modern bathrooms and period features, we felt at home during our stay. Host was very accessible and helpful.

    Lovely garden and pool for a bracing dip. Walking to local facilities and sea front. Good and prompt communication with owner.

  • "We had a great week at Barnsley House."

    The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the top floor, which has obviously been recently renovated, was beautifully appointed - some of the bedrooms have stunning sea views. The pool and garden were a real treat - it felt incredibly secluded and private. Cooking facilities not bad for a holiday cottage, though we were surprised there was no coffee maker - not even a cafetière! Although the downstairs decor could do with some updating, this is a wonderfully characterful house with all the activities of Teignmouth and the beach just a few minutes away. It was very well suited to our big family group - the kids spent all their time either round the pool or playing tennis on the (free) courts on the sea front. Great place to holiday and would heartily recommend.

  • "My wife and I arrived first closely followed by the rest of the family."

    Everyone expressed a "Wow!" on entry into the building; that entrance is quite something. We loved the cream tea, the fresh flowers and the quirky nature of the house and gardens which added a homely, welcoming feeling. Your listings say: "Those with limited mobility will be pleased with the restful ground-floor double bedroom". However, the downstairs bathroom, while not a problem for us, would not have been at all easy to access if we had a mobility issue. So, I do take you to task on that point. Would we book again - Yes.

  • "Truly lovely house, full of period features."

    The grounds are beautiful. Just a minor point either an extension lead or longer leads on the hairdryers so they reach the mirrors(for the ladies).
