  • "Thank you for a lovely stay we all found the property amazing, every thing you could possibly need was provided."

    The location was quiet and peaceful yet still close enough to Salcombe. The accommodation was spacious, clean and tidy and has everything you need and the games room was used everyday. The owners were all very friendly and helpful couldn't ask for more in a holiday property. Would definitely recommend and welcome the opportunity to stay again.

  • "Mill Barn at Woolston was perfect for our party of 12."

    The house is very well equipped and had everything we required. It is light and spacious, warm and with plenty of hot water. The rooms were comfortable, clean and had plenty of towels. The owners were charming, welcoming and very helpful and very kindly rigged a double bed in the Games Room in lieu of the bunk beds (not suitable for our age group). Mill Barn is well situated for the towns of Kingsbridge and Salcombe, and there are masses of walks to choose from within a short drive. Altogether, Mill Barn is a lovely property and we would strongly recommend it. We will come back again.

  • "Great place for a family gathering, cleanliness was brilliant, baby stair gate, cot available."

    Pet friendly in most of the barn but not allowed in bedrooms, we ended up not taking pets which was the best idea. No tv signal in the bedrooms which the other adults and children moaned about. We did have large tv in lounge which had sky tv. The barn play room was a great addition, ideal that we had brilliant weather to walk to it. A few extra bits like a few toiletries and some coffee pods for the machine would have been welcomed. The hoover smelt quite bad from dog. Such a lovely peaceful place to stay we really enjoyed the space and us all being able to get together as we are quite a large family. We did get an hour later to check out as 9am is very early to get 5 children ready and out the door. Would definitely book again.

    Thank you for the feedback. We have asked our changeover team to ensure that hoover bags/filters are checked each changeover and changed as necessary to prevent odours. The TV signal issue in the bedrooms has been fixed – apologies for this. The outgoing guests had reported the issue, which we were grateful for, however, unfortunately the engineer couldn’t attend until the Monday, so after your weekend break. We’re pleased that you would definitely book Mill Barn again. Property Owner

  • "I would definitely recommend a stay at Mill Barn!"

    The premise is very clean and well maintained, there was a small problem with the hot water but the owner quickly responded and resolved it. Luxury all the way at this beautiful home, large kitchen with everything you could ask for. Underfloor heating, large comfortable bedrooms, I had an en-suite with a lovely deep bath and large shower cubicle. The grandchildren really enjoyed the games room and park (A short walk of 50 meters) in the beautiful orchard area.(Darts, skittles, table tennis, pool table) Ideally located for the Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Hope Cove areas.

  • "Fabulous holiday home that's accurately described and imaged on website."

    Exceptionally clean and furnished to a high standard. Kitchen is very well stocked with ample crockery, utensils and appliances - a real home from home. Owner was welcoming and helpful without ever being intrusive. The area is typical for Devon and Cornwall with many very narrow lanes and roads so not for the faint hearted driver at times! Fully recommend the property.

  • "Mill Barn was both very comfortable and well equipped."

    The beaches were close at hand and we particularly enjoyed North Sands and Bigbury on Sea. We were a family party of 12 (3 generations) and the 6 children loved the house with plenty of places to play ‘Hide and Seek’. The games barn was a success for both the children and their parents and the enclosed garden was a good place for the dog to sit in the sun. We can confidently recommend this excellent holiday accommodation for a large group.

  • "Extremely spacious and well appointed large property."

    2 dishwashers upstairs in large kitchen an 1 on ground floor in small kitchen, ideal for when we had a barbecue in garden or large meal upstairs.very well equipped in terms of kitchen equipment. Lovely and clean, made us of private play barn and orchard that was just for our use. Plenty of parking. Beautiful location would recommend visiting hope cove and the beach and north sands and east portlemouth ( accessed by short ferry ride) almost had beaches to ourselves. Enjoyed the walks to Gara Rock and bolt head. So many lovely places to eat. If large group of you are going would recommend a Tesco or Waitrose delivery of all your essentials on first day of holiday. Would love to return at next milestone birthday or anniversary in family. We were 11 people age ranging from 18 months to 80yrs and 2 dogs.

  • "What you see is what you get re this property."

    The photos are true. An excellent place to stay. Our experience: Follow the instructions to the property that are sent to you with the booking as it will avoid you taking some very narrow lanes. Great parking at the property. Loading and unloading outside the property is easy. The property is immaculate and the owners are on hand to help and advise should you need it. The family are very friendly and live next door. The provision of kitchenware and ovenware is first class. It's so easy to cook indoors and host guests, also the barn layout upstairs works really well for big groups. Three dishwashers and 2 kitchens in the property work well; all the bathrooms are first class. It is warm in the property even without the log burner. Bedrooms downstairs are quiet to sleep in. We didn't get much use out of the games room as it's across the road, but I imagine with small children playing in the field across the road and dogs if you have them, it would be a good place to go particularly in summer. To be honest we couldn't fault this property. Pre book taxis if you need them and restaurants too. Read the information book in the property for ideas of places to go. Take good supplies of food and drink with you and you will have a great time. Date of Stay: February 2019

    Comfortably accommodated 14 people. The games room and barn for the children were particularly helpful in keeping kids occupied and happy, whilst the large TV, stereo sound and Sky Sports entertained the adults. The underfloor heating was very effective in keeping the spacious main living area warm. Well fitted out to a high standard. Everyone commented on how comfortable the mattresses/bedding were. Great location in the countryside, yet close to Salcombe, with some lovely walks along the nearby beaches and coastline. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    The barn itself is clean, spacious and extremely well equipped with good quality kitchen equipment to make the self catering just like cooking at home. 8 adults plus a toddler and 2 dogs stayed and there was plenty of space to share times together as well as separate areas to relax.

The property

Mill Barn is a fabulous house converted from the largest part of a barn complex on the edge of Woolston hamlet opposite a farmhouse.

Private and beautifully designed, it is outstanding accommodation for family gatherings or groups of friends to enjoy.

When you enter the massive open plan living space you will be struck by the lofty beams, huge window and oak floors, making a very smart and modern area for socialising.

The seating area has a cosy wood burning stove to gather around, the dining area offers a big table for leisurely suppers and the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped.

At this level, you have a choice of two en suite double bedrooms, both with a TV.

Take the stairs down to four more comfy bedrooms and a playroom where the children will love playing air hockey, table tennis and on the Wii.

Thoughtfully provided on this level is a handy second kitchen, a real asset for big groups to all find their own space.

Outside is your safely enclosed courtyard at the side of the house, where you can eat out or stretch out on the grass.

A rear courtyard has a useful outdoor shower, wash-down area and a garage/drying room for bikes, beach gear and wet dogs.

Over the little used lane in an orchard are more treats for the children: an unheated games barn for playing skittles, pool or table tennis and a play area with climbing frame and slide.

You can watch the children have fun whilst you cook fresh seafood on the barbecue.

This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so bring your walking boots and be prepared for some stunning countryside or head on to the South West Coast Path for cliff top views out to sea or take a trip to the Dartmoor National Park for heather hills and massive tors to climb.

The beauty of this area of South Devon is of course the choice of spectacular beaches where you can surf and enjoy family fun on the sand.

Salcombe and Kingsbridge are the go-to towns for thoroughly satisfying retail therapy in interesting little shops, or a feast in a great restaurant.

Mill Barn is a very special place for gathering with those you love, whatever the weather brings.
