Great home to have spent time with the family over Christmas
We all loved it there for three nights that we stayed, I would really recommend the place
Dear Guest - delighted that you obviously had a very enjoyable stay at Barn Owl cottage and thank you for your very positive review.
Perfect place in every way!
Dear Mrs Ruberry - well it doesn’t get any better than that! Thank you so much for your exemplary review. Delighted you had such a good stay and hope that we can welcome you again.
Lived up to our expectations. We had a really nice family reunion.
The road to the property is maybe a little bit on the narrow side, (Volvo Suv).
So pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Barn Owl and your family reunion. Devon is noted for its leafy country lanes and this enhances its charms. As long as guests drive with a degree of care, the road is of a more than adequate width to access the cottage without any issues.
We stayed in Barn Owl Cottage for a week in early September. The cottage was as perfect, 3 couples and we all had our own space. Just one negative, after the long drive down, it would have been nice to have had some milk left in the fridge, we were gasping for a cuppa when we arrived. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Awesome family cottage.
My extended family and I stayed at Barn Owl for a week and loved it! It was plenty big enough of us all (8 adults, 3 kids & a dog!) Great for the kids with a nice big pool (had it to ourselves every time we used it!), a lovely playroom that even the parents enjoyed (ping pong tournaments a-plenty!) and play park with an amazing view.
Location was fab - we had lots of visits to Paignton beach & Pennywell Farm was excellent!
Overall I would highly recommend.
Dear Mrs Geary - we were so pleased that you had such a wonderful stay and many thanks for your review. We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Barn Owl and don’t forget returning guests get at least a 10% discount. Best regards Jonathan
