Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully appointed & very cosy cottage What a wonderful spot for a fantastic getaway. The Long Barn was just exceptional. Everything has been thought through and the little touches really make it special. We do many short holidays during the year to get away from our busy lives and this cottage will be a return visit one for us!! The service we have received was absolutely awesome and we will highly recommend your cottages.(We have stayed at 2 now!) The whole property is stunning and relaxing and the seclusion exceptional so close to the town. Thank you for having us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Hidden Gem! The Devon Long Barn was a great find. There was so much attention to detail to ensure a very relaxing weekend. On arrival on Friday night, after a drive from Sydney, we arrived to find the barn softly lit with lovely music playing. It is exactly as it appears in the photos and Margaret is very friendly and welcoming. She also recommended a mobile massage to come to the barn which was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful and should look amazing in Spring having just planted 5000 bulbs!
