  • "We had a fantastic 7 night stay here, the barn is beautiful."

    Finished and furnished to a high standard. Very clean and had everything we needed for a gorgeous stay. Location is great and close to so many places, Quantock barn was the perfect way to relax after exploring the coast each day. We will definitely return :)

  • "The barn was exactly as described, very spacious, warm and well equipped."

    Good beds, high quality bedding and lovely big fluffy towels. Sadly the weather was not great for our stay so we didn’t make much use of the outside space. However the peace and quiet was a real treat. Birdsong, woodpeckers and owls couldn’t hear a road at all. Ellie was on hand if needed and came to check the jacuzzi once, but text first which we appreciated. Good information folders in the property including a folder with manual for all the appliances and heating. Ellie also left an extremely generous welcome hamper - thank you! This property would very comfortably accommodate 6 and you’d not be on top of each other, would definitely recommend.

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback! I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully you will come back and we will have nicer weather for you, with the new patio area completed to enjoy the sunshine! Property Owner

  • "Beautiful home for our Christmas holiday."

    We enjoyed a very comfortable stay with good quality bedding and towels. The large open plan living area was so lovely for family dining and living. All the bathrooms had high quality showers and facilities. We loved the hot tub and the Christmas tree and decorations made everything very festive. Would highly recommend Quantock Barn.

  • "We had a great stay at Quantock Barn, Stockland."

    Set in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, we were surrounded by the peaceful picturesque views. It is within easy reach of the beaches and local village. The property was extremely spacious, very comfortable and with excellent cleanliness and amenities in all areas. We were very reliant on an accurate description of the property, as it was essential that there was sufficient space for a large family group, that included an elderly member of our family - it fitted this perfectly. I would highly recommend this property to others.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. I am so glad to hear the property was suitable for your family and that you had a great break for such a special occasion. We would love to welcome you back again! Property Owner

  • "This is a fantastic place to stay and I can’t recommend it enough."

    Quantock Barn is exactly as you see in the pictures - the property is huge and we loved the well-equipped open-plan kitchen and lounge area. Having all en-suite bedrooms was a lovely addition and is generally a rare find with holiday lets. Everywhere was very clean and really nicely decorated. On arrival we’d been left welcome treats of cheese, milk, fresh bread, egg and biscuits which was a really nice touch. We also enjoyed the luxury of a hot tub and loved having the four goats in the paddock opposite (they were there sporadically and were surprisingly quiet so no worries of being disturbed!) We accidentally broke a wine glass while we were there, which I reported and apologised for and Izzy (the owner) was round the next day with a replacement. She also checked the hot tub was ready to use and was generally very welcoming and friendly. The barn is secluded and peaceful, but well placed for trips to the countryside and the coast (we travelled to Sidmouth and Lyme Regis and Branscombe during our stay). All in all, a real standout place to stay.

  • "We had a great stay at Quantock Barn last week, very peaceful, lots to do in the area."

    The only problem we encountered was hundreds of flies outside the front of the property our cars were covered and we were unable to open the windows or doors of the property for a few days, there had been a lot of rain and the flies seemed to be less after 3 or 4 days so unsure whether it was the weather or something else. Other than that lovely place to stay.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. It is great to hear you had a wonderful stay. Sorry to hear about the flies! I am not sure why that happened as I don't think that has happened before, but I will be sure to keep an eye on it just in case. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful spacious barn with the most generous welcome pack we've ever seen."

    The barn is very comfortable, a separate chair in the lounge area would be useful as would a washing line. We were so grateful for all the fans as it was extremely warm despite all the rain. The walks in the woods and along the lanes were wonderful, especially spotting the deer and rabbits. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Quantock Barn.

  • "The barn is absolutely stunning and had everything we could possibly need for a our week away."

    The interior is beautiful, very comfortable and the bath and rainfall showers are really luxurious. We were, however, really disappointed by the hot tub as it went green part way through our stay. I had to scrub the inside of it (as far as I could reach) but it still had a green tinge to it, despite us adding more chlorine tablets as advised. I've never stayed anywhere where I was required to clean and maintain the hot tub during my stay so this brought down our overall rating of an otherwise lovely holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am very sorry to hear you had trouble with the hot tub. I can assure you the hot tub is emptied and cleaned between each stay, but it still shouldn't have gone green. In future, please do drop me a text or call and I will send someone to check and if necessary clean the hot tub again, as soon as possible. Unfortunately, as I was unaware of the issue on this occasion I couldn't help during your stay. I hope you otherwise had an enjoyable holiday, and I do hope you consider staying with us again in the future. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful stay at Quantock Barn."

    Five star spacious accommodation with luxury feel and immaculately clean. Property had everything we needed for our weeks stay. Bedrooms with comfortable beds and luxury linen and pillows, bathroom with plenty of towels. Lovely touch with hamper on our arrival and even a comfy bed for the dog and blanket too. When we arrived the property was lovely and warm with lights on and hot tub was ready. Beautiful secluded and scenic location. Would 100% recommend and will definitely be returning. Thank you for a wonderful time spent in Devon x

  • "The Barn is absolutely fantastic."

    It's in a stunning location and is equipped with everything you could possibly need to live there, let alone stay for a week. Everything provided is top quality. We really enjoyed our stay. If I were asked to recommend enhancements I would ask that the fridge freezer be looked at as it very noisy at times and we would have preferred that the rear patio/ garden be fenced off so that we could have let the dog out unattended without fear of her wandering off, I think the same could apply to small children. Congratulations to the owners, they have a beautiful property.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and I am so happy to hear you had a wonderful stay. I am hoping to improve the patio/garden area in the near future so that it is nice and secure for dogs and children, so thank you for letting me know that this could be an improvement you would like to see. Thank you again and I hope to welcome you back soon! Property Owner

  • "This is an extremely well equipped property."

    A lot of thought has gone into the furnishings and the kitchen utensils. All the extra things I usually bring with me were not required as it is all there - extra toilet rolls, washing up and clothes tablets, baking foil etc. The accommodation is all on one level and beautifully appointed, the kitchen has enough cupboard space with a big fridge and freezer. Plenty of room for our very large dog to spread out and the field around the property was perfect for her to explore whilst we enjoyed the hot tub. The location was ideal for our day trips out to all the wonderful beaches along the Jurassic coastline and there are several farm shops relatively close for any special food shops required and plenty of little towns. Exeter City is only a 30 minute drive away. A perfect place which we would happily return back to.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. I am so pleased to hear that the property had everything you needed and that you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Property Owner

    “Hunt the cutlery draw” was fun. The towel racks in the showers should be relocated, a constant head hitting threat where they currently are situated. Great location made for a good holiday. Would be more than happy to return. Thank you.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We really appreciate hearing how your stay can be improved, although it is great to hear you had a lovely holiday. It seems the cutlery drawer is quite difficult to find for many guests, so I will try and think of a way to make it easier to find in the future! I will also have a look at the towel racks and see if these can be relocated. Thank you again, I hope to see you in the future! Property Owner

  • "We have had such a lovely time here with our children, their partners and our dog."

    The house is spacious, well equipped, the hot tub was great for chilling after a visit to the beach or surrounding places to visit. The owner put fans in all rooms which were much appreciated as we booked the hot week! The outside with the meadow was perfect for our dog and we saw deer in the meadow too. The bi- fold doors need a bit of attention. Lot’s of places nearby to visit and Dalwood Vinery was fabulous if you like wine and a giggle. Highly recommend for a chill with plenty of places to visit also. Thank-you we have made some lovely memories while staying here.

    Would recommend a new lid for the hot tub and the bio fold doors need adjusting but apart from that the accommodation is lovely . Everything you need is there

    Thank you very much for your feedback, it is much appreciated. As it happens I have only recently taken the property over and I am looking at getting new hot tubs relatively soon.

  • "The property is not suitable for warmer months, it gets far too hot, which is made worse by there being no air con to cool it down and if you try and open a window to get any breeze through, you are attacked by countless flying bugs, it’s impossible."

    Maybe some fans would help but due to the nature of the building it would just be pushing hot air around. The bedrooms lacked storage, a set of draws would’ve been helpful rather than just one wardrobe each. The inside of the house was mostly clean, the light fixtures hadn’t been cleaned and the windows hadn’t either. The kitchen was lacking baking trays and pans (you definitely couldn’t come close to cooking a roast) but the hot tub made our nails green so we emptied it and cleaned it ourselves, it was filthy. The grass outside the property is only about mowed about a fifth (maybe less) of what the pictures display, the rest is long grass that you can’t walk through even with wellies on.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are very sorry that your stay wasn't up to expectations. We are actually the new owners of the property as of a week or so ago, and are still getting our feet under the table. We very much appreciate feedback as we would like all our guests to leave happy and relaxed. Lack of kitchen equipment is something that can be and will be dealt with immediately as well as the standards of the cleaning and maintenance team. The insect situation is more problematic as we are next to fields and farms and in hot weather there is inevitably some insect life. Regarding the air conditioning we are trying to keep it as environmentally friendly as possible so we will not be installing air conditioning units but may look at some ceiling fans. We do hope that you will consider visiting again, once we have had the opportunity to make some improvements. Property Owner

Honiton is a delightful market town in East Devon, with plenty to offer visitors. It lies in the valley of the River Otter and is surrounded by rolling Devon hills, green wooded valleys and plenty of scattered farming villages. Honiton has an attractive High Street stretching almost 2 miles, and lined with individually owned shops, pubs and restaurants. Honiton has been famous for lacemaking since the reign of Elizabeth I and still has a few lacemakers in work today - visitors can see some fine examples of antique lace in the town’s Allhallows Museum. Honiton boasts the only public art gallery in East Devon; the Thelma Hulbert Gallery occupies an attractive Grade I listed Victorian house, and has links with the Hayward Gallery, London. Honiton is only a short drive from the dramatic 20 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Resorts such as Seaton, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are found along this stretch of coastline, and all have much to occupy the visitor. Near to Honiton is the cathedral city of Exeter with plenty of large shops, a wealth of museums, a theatre and fabulous restaurants.
