Our 7th year running. That says it all! July 2022

We planned this family holiday after covid had prevented us being together for such a long time and we wanted something special. We hit the jackpot. The venue is of the utmost quality and perfect for families to relax, play and laugh together. The fun was not dented when, for 48 hours, we had no electric or water thanks to Storm Franklin. Step up Sue and Roger; they ensured we were safe and able to continue our holiday providing us with everything we needed to carry on with our stay. They are the perfect hosts, keen to support their guests so you get the best from your holiday. Our family had so much fun, we created so many memories and stories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for making us so welcome. The Gold family. March 2022

Just come back from a fantastic weekend thank you Sue and Roger for the use of this amazing place everything we needed was provided. Facilities were excellent pool was brilliant couldnít recommend this accommodation more. Would return in an instant.

Thank you Sue and Roger for a wonderful stay in the barn. We had such a relaxing week, splitting our time between walks on Dartmoor, surfing at the beach and enjoying all the great facilities here, including the best pool we have ever had at a holiday house. The views are stunning and no expense has been spared in ensuring that we had a comfortable and relaxing time. Thank you! We will be telling our friends about this absolute gem of a property. September 2021

Three generations and three cars arrived at the BARN to a very warm welcome from Sue and Roger. The BARN is very unique and innovative with up to date technology ( many thanks Roger for the tour ). The accommodation and pool are fabulous and very much appreciated. We used the pool every day but the highlight was after dark with the pool lighting, music playing, and we even had some dancing at the pool side !!! The family enjoyed days out around the area and some just enjoyed the garden and feeding the fish in the pond. A most enjoyable and relaxing holiday thanks to a unique building with Sue and Rogerís attention to detail. Many thanks from us all. The Kerr family.

This Barn is amazing and has one of the most beautiful private pools I have swam in, a swimmers pool. I have spent hours in it. No chlorine, 29C warm, crystal clean, well maintained, 14mx7m (15.7m on the diagonal), 2m at the deep end and bathed in southern light in all wethers. Best pool ever.

A wonderful setting for a wonderful house. We have all hugely enjoyed our time here and are looking forward to the next visit. The Strzelecki Family July 2019

This was our first visit to the barn and we had a whole week of fun experiences. We had a lovely walk in Parke which is close by. There is a lovely tea room in the village called Primrose Cottage which does the best cakes ever. The swimming pool in the Barn is bigger than at the local spa and Sue and Roger were happy to sort out any problems. Barker and Darcy (dogs) were good company for our dogs Dyson and Gizmo. We will definitely come back. Sam - April 2019

Our 2nd visit to this lovely barn, came same weekend last year and we all loved it. Something for every age and the weather never makes a bit of difference to the enjoyment. The storm was even exciting, watching it over the rolling hills! Any problems you have are never any trouble for Roger and Sue to sort out. Fantastic hosts as always. Until next year. Many thanks David and Family - March 2019

WOW! What a wonderful place for all ages to immerse themselves in. Our host's and Barker (the puppy) made us feel very welcome. We instantly loved it here from first sight, can't wait to return. The Smith Family, Oct 2018

Thank you Sue and Roger. You have made us very welcome. We have all had the most relaxing time in your cleverly planned barn conversion. The swimming pool has been a great success and the inviting water encouraged even Nanny to take a dip. There are endless places to take Charlie (the dog) for a walk. Pubs supplying excellent food and the cream teas at the Primrose tearooms are worth sampling. Breathtaking views over Dartmoor are easily reached by car and there are many attractive little villages to be found as you negotiate the narrow country lanes. It is an excellent place for all ages.

We have all had a really lovely week here. Loved the pool, especially the kids! The house is stunning and so well equipped and we all have been made to feel very welcome. We enjoyed a fantastic meal at The Cleave and also enjoyed afternoon tea at The Primrose tea rooms. Our best day by far was at Dawlish Warren beach - a fantastic place for famililes with a beautiful clean beach. Would love to come back. - July/August 18

Well! What can I say about the Barn that has not already been said. It is a fantastic house for a holiday with every conceivable item being catered for by the genial hosts, Roger and Sue. Everything was available including a gas BBQ which we enjoyed. Thanks Roger and Sue, we will see you again before too long. June 2018

We have had a truly relaxing holiday in Devon here at The Barn. Cosy accommodation, amazing pool and a peaceful garden for all to enjoy. Will definitely recommend. The Lewis/Spacagna Family, June 2018

Our second visit and The Barn has exceeded expectations again! Never a dull moment with so much to do both in the house and only a short drive away. Highlights of the holiday include paddle boarding with Reach Outdoors and The Seqway tour through the gorgeous sights of Haldon Forest! The prison museum in Princetown was an undiscovered gem and the round robin on the steam train and paddle steamer was glorious on a sunny day. But if you can't be bothered to leave the house/garden we wouldn't blame you! The Barn itself is the greatest attraction of all. Thanks Roger and Sue for a lovely stay. Hope to see you again. The Cox/Philpot Family, June 2018

We've had a wonderful holiday both at the barn and out on Dartmoor. What a fantastic place. The pool is amazing, the kids have loved the games room and the wonderful weather has allowed us to enjoy the outside space as well. Can't wait to come back. Thanks also to Sue and Roger for all their help during our stay. The Cleave was closed for food but we had a wonderful meal at the Three Crowns at Chagford. Also the walk at Fingle Bridge and Haytor Rocks are great places to visit. April 2018

This is our second visit, we came to celebrate my daughter's 50th birthday. We had a great week, the Barn is so special. We are a family of different ages but all enjoyed it. We had a lovely meal at The Cleave, and cream tea at Primrose Tea Room, both excellent. We walked from The Barn down through the woods to the village - very enjoyable but quite a challenge walking back! We would certainly like to return. Thank you Sue and Roger - April 2018

We came away for an anniversary, a 50th and a 21st birthday. We have had a fantastic stay. The place is super clean. Swimming pool was amazing, we couldn't believe the size of it. The games room was great, beds also comfiest we have known. We had 2 dogs with us, 1 being a very energetic puppy, the fields to walk around were perfect. We are hoping to return very soon! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Our second time at the barn and it just seems to get better. The perfect place to unwind and reset. The best place to get snowed in. Lustleigh is beautiful in the snow. Thank you. Lissa - February 2018

What a special place indeed, thank you for making this such a special celebration for Mum's 70 birthday . We could not have spent it as a family altogether in a better place. Outstanding clean, beautiful location and nothing too much trouble. We recommend eating at The Cleave pub, super food. Also ate at the Elizabethan in Luton near Newton Abbot, 25 - 30 minute drive, great food if venturing out not that you need to as The Barn has everything you need. Back next year, some of us stayed longer than others and they struggled to leave! March 2018

We had a lovely stay here, the pool was fantastic and my son totally loved the sofas! Everywhere was very clean and it has been a fantastic weekend with our family - January 18

We had a lovely Christmas at the barn, kids and adults loved the pool and games room. This place has everything you need.

We have had a wonderful week in a stunning house and in a stunning location. It was a beautiful clean house and we have had a great week all together. Thank you for all your tips on places to go, we had a lovely walk at The Tor yesterday. Will highly recommend to friends and family.

Lovely homely feeling to this amazing building in a very beautiful landscape. Fantastic walks. Best Cream Tea ever in the Primrose Tea Rooms and delicious food at The Cleave Pub. So many happy memories to treasure in the future. Thank you so very much to our kind hosts.

This is our third time coming here and once again it has been spectacular. All of the house has been much loved. The pool is obviously the best part and because of the location of the house we have been able to go and visit places like Paignton. We have had an amazing time, thank you so much. July 2017

We had the most amazing time here. Everything was wonderful. The pool (which we enjoyed for many hours), the beds, everything was thought of and the weather was lovely, apart from the day we were leaving. Overall we had an amazing stay (very relaxed) and would love to come again. July 2017

Second visit, great weather, excellent walks. Still coming third in table tennis. Back next year. Good fish and chips on Thursday in Lustleigh Village. 30 June 2017

Lovely accommodation with stunning views, everything you need at hand. Pool amazing, had a lovely time. Weather let us down but great place to stay.

Jan - fabulous holiday, everything was great. Sue and Roger made us feel very welcome. Jordan - loved it here. Lauren - such a good holiday, the pool and games room were my favourites. Selina (Mum to the group) loved that my 5 children all varying age ranges were off their tablets, phones and gadgets and all played together with no arguments. Will definitely come again. Rhiannon - my partner and I are complete opposites when it comes to what to do on holiday but this place has it all. Kept us both happy all week. The aquarium in Torquay is amazing. Thanks for having us.

I had such a great time here I would love to come back. The pool was amazing, (that's where I spent more of my time). I also loved the garden it was perfect for hide and seek. This was a great holiday. Beth Aged 10

I loved the pool and the garden was amazing, I really would like to come back. The games room was good, I love it here. Lucie, Age 9 August 2016

Thank you very much for having us Roger and Sue, the barn is incredible and we have really enjoyed our stay. As a 13 year old lad the teenage years can be boring but not at this place. I went in the pool at least twice a day and the games room was great too. After exploring Devon and Dartmoor for the day I would beg my parents to let us go to the pool. I would recommend Brixham fish restaurant and takeaway as it is the best fish and chips in the country in my opinion. - August 2016

Wow was the word used by all of us. What a wonderful place. The younger ones, not Mum, are all a lot fitter. Good use was made of the games and swimming pool also we all fitted in a lot of walking and eating. Thank you for letting us stay. Sharon and family April 2016

Our first visit to the barn and we are sad to be going home! LOTS of time spent in the pool and games room A good selection of DVD's to relax our children before bed. 2 lovely visits to The Cleave Pub in the village and very comfy beds to roll into at the end of our busy days. We definitely hope to be back. Thanks so much Sue and Roger! Kate, Mark, Sadie, Mica, Aston and Lexi + visiting Grandparents.

Our first isit to the barn. A lovely relaxing time had by all. Hours in the pool and games room and some lovely days out. Many thanks. The kids - An awesome visit with a relaxing pool. All of the equipment was amazing. We all love the games room. Many thanks

I have really enjoyed staying here. My favourite place is the pool. I've been in it every day. The beds are so comfortable. My brother loves the games room. This holiday has brought the family closer as instead of us being on our electronics we've been playing card games, it's been amazing. I can't wait to tell my friends about this mind blowing house. I can't wait to come back next year, I'm sooooooooo excited. Thanks for making this holiday the best thing ever and thanks for letting us feed the fish. Lots of Love from Katie aged 11 xx

If ever anyone needs a holiday with it all, the Barn has it!! Luxurious accommodation, the thought and attention to details says it all. Amazing pool you can actually swim in. Games room fabulous adding the fun factor to the wow factor. Quality music system, even games and jigsaws. You actually don't need to go out, the perfect holiday venue. The lanes here may be a little scary but well worth it for the venue, peace, quiet and solitude. Thank you to Sue and Roger. Kevin, Sue and Lauren - July 2015

We all had a great time. Beth learnt how to dive and Jo had an amazing birthday and really enjoyed Roger's walk on Sunday. Holly and Tommy loved the garden. Lara and Sam spent most of the weekend in the games room. Thanks Sue and Roger for a lovely weekend. Beth (aged 9)

We spent a week here with our family to celebrate our wedding. It was a wonderful space for us all to get together and a big thank you to Sue and Roger for making us feel so welcome. April 2015

We had a lovely time, we all really enjoyed swimming lots in the pool and playing games. Beautiful house and gardens, lovely welcome. Looking forward to coming again soon. November 2014

There are only two words needed to describe The Barn, "simply stunning" - thanks Sue and Roger for the most relaxing holiday ever. September 2014

A wonderful, relaxing week in this fab house! Pool table, table tennis and swimming pool have all been well used. We will definitely be back. Many thanks Sue & Roger. April 2014

Your hospitality and barn have served as a perfect venue for a week of fun, get togethers, walks and enabled studies to continue. 1st family holiday for the dog, as he is usually in kennels whilst we travel, he is ready for all future holidays now. The maps and other materials were brilliant and aided us in making the most of the week. Thank you. April 2014

Absolutely fabulous time, beautiful weather, gorgeous views. We will definitely come again. March 2014

We gathered for a very special event - Edna's 90th birthday. This is the 5th visit for Susan and Edna, 4th for Janet and Jill. As you might guess we love it here. It has everything we need for a perfect relaxed family gathering. We have eaten well drunk plenty, laughed incessantly. Great dog walks, refreshing swims, even the two "oldies". Thank you Sue & Roger. Susan, Janet & Jill, Sussex, Yorkshire, Canada

Fantastic property, definitely got the WOW factor!! We will return Thanks Roger and Sue for everything. Half Term Feb 2014

Myself, husband and four friends stayed for best part of a week in November. Accommodation superb and everything else about the Barn excellent. The six of us back in July serious swimming and BBQ's. Recommended

Had a lovely relaxing time in spite of the weather not being too good. Swam in the mornings and when the sun shone went out. Moors are lovely this time of year. Widdicombe, Totnes, Cockington - all cute little villages. Chagford small but has one of the biggest shops ever, pub lunch there too and dogs welcome inside. Stone Lane Arboretum with sculptures was lovely (met Joe Swift who was filming a garden program there!) Trago Mills has everything for a wet day. Saw some lovely rainbows due to wet weather. Heron in pond to visit and a couple of stoats.. Best of all is the swimming pool though worst of all the drive to get here! September 2013

We have stayed in a number of holiday homes but this was by far the best. The facilities were first rate. The pool and games room kept our teenage boys happy and the sun shone so we were able to sit out and enjoy the lovely Devon views.Wonderful walks down to Lustleigh, lovely Devon village. Roger and Sue were so welcoming. Thank you for such a wonderful time.

The attention to detail Roger and Sue have lavished on The Barn and equally on the fabulous gardens that surround it have all come together to create the perfect holiday home . It certainly has the wow factor the second the electronic gates begin to open. We also had the pleasure of Sue's home cooked food which we ordered with just a few days notice.It was brought over piping hot with accompaniments and all we had to do was lay the table before tucking into a feast. I would recommend The Barn to anyone without hesitation. Many Thanks from The Morris family

We had a five star holiday, it was the most relaxed I have felt in years and truly was one that our boys are going to remember for the rest of their lives. Many people have asked me where we stayed on the back of our fabuluous holiday photos posted on Facebook so I have been referring them to your website. We cannot thank you both enough xxx

AMAZING ACCOMMODATION, FACILITIES and LOCATION... the best we have had the pleasure of staying in! The Swimming pool is FABULOUS and the pool table and table tennis a great added bonus. Attention to detail of the layout, fixtures and fittings and quality oak materials used throughout the property is surpassed by none. Sue and Roger are the perfect hosts and Sue's hospitality even extends to home baked lemon drizzle cakes on arrival! Looking forward to returning soon.

Itis an awesome location surrounded with beauty. Every window has a picture of lovely colourful trees to steep ancient hills. It was just epic, there's no place like here. I didn't want to leave. Tyler - Age 10

What a fantastic place, wanted for nothing, entertained for hours! We celebrated 10th, 50th and 80th birthdays while we were here and what a truely awesome venue to celebrate them in. We wanted a place to suit all ages, with peace and quiet and time to spend enjoying family life - and thanks to Sue and Roger we have done just that. Thank you so much - we will be back without a doubt. Like Tyler, I don't want to leave.

What an amazing 2012 New Year Holiday! We saw in the new year in the pool. 100% better than the pictures! We have stayed in a lot of Villas, cottages, holiday homes, in the UK and World Wide. This is by far the best! Everything about this beautiful home is 5 star plus. We are over the moon we have found a gorgeous home we can bring our two dogs to. Thank you very much to the perfect hosts Sue and Roger. x

We brought our own version of the 2012 olympics to the barn!..was fantastic fun..and what a place! You dont need to worry about the weather when you're staying here,...Pool table, table tennis, and that incredible huge swimming pool....superb! Such a lot of effort has been put into making this a wonderfully equipped, luxurious holiday home......"and the GOLD medal goes tooooooo.......Sue & Roger!" A big thankyou to you both.

The Barn was everything we hoped for and more! The accommodation and facilities are excellent. The pool and games room were well used. Thoroughly recommend the Cleave Inn in Lustleigh. Thanks Sue and Roger for your hospitality.

We stayed at the Barn in May, and found it to be simply stunning! The location, scenery, accomodation and facilities are all excellent. We all loved the pool and the games room, and the garden and meadow were ideal for the dogs. Thanks Sue and Roger for your warm welcome and congratulations on creating the perfect country get-away. Can't wait to return!

We all knew as soon as we arrived that we were going to wish we were staying longer than the 4 nights we had booked. The barn was fantastic. It was lovely sitting outside and gazing over the fields at the lovely views and just hearing the birds singing. Roger and Sue gave us such a warm welcome and it was so lovely to have so much space to be able to walk the dogs. The barn itself is furnished with so much thought and attention to detail, very comfortable. We made very good use of the pool and games room, we were reluctant to venture out as there was everything we needed right there. We will definitely return. Many thanks for the wonderful hospitality.

Wow! You should both be very proud at what you have achieved at the barn. It is truly amazing- the accomodation was out of this world. Lovely warm welcome from Sue, Roger and Max. Thank you so much, we will be back for another visit soon

The Barn is the perfect place to stay. We came for a week but were so impressed that we stayed for two! Beautiful countryside location with beautiful views and excellent facilities. Thanks Sue and Roger for your help and kindness.

Second visit in 4 months and I still can't get enough of this place. This time we brought mum and she loved it as much as we do. Lunch in the Cleave was wonderful - I can recommend it! And a visit to the guild of craftsmen's place in Bovey Tracey was worth the visit - such pretty things! So relaxing here it feels like we have been here for longer than we really have - hate to go home now. Thanks again Sue and Roger, for a marvellous time - til the next next!

Brilliant place! We have all (3 generations) had a wonderful and relaxing holiday. We enjoyed the house, the pool, the views, the walking and the pub lunches! We had good ones at the Cleave Inn, Kestor Inn at Water and Ring of Bells at North Bovey. Thank you for your hospitality and great weather organised too!

We wound our way up the country lanes to be greeted by the spectacular sight of the Barn, a truly wonderful site. Then received a very warm welcome from Sue and Roger. The entire place is wonderful. The best we have had in the four years we have done this. The pool is great, as is the games room. All of the facilities are well thought out.

We have had a glorious week in the Barn with something for everyone - views, walks, swimming, games and numerous local attractions. Thank you, Sue and Roger.

Wow - what a place! We've been doing this for nearly 14 years and have never stayed in such an amazing place. The Barn is truly special - and it should be 5 star not 4! Thank you so much to Sue and Roger for being fantastic hosts. The boys loved the pool. The Cleave Inn in Lustleigh is wonderful. We will be back!
