    The cottage was lovely, however what spoiled the holiday for me was that the public footpaths across the fields were completely inaccessible for our dog. There is no gap in between the horizontal planks, the steps are two small for him to use, and they are too high to lift him over. Having researched this location and printed out the Walks around Yarcombe leaflet, I was very disappointed not to be able to make any use of the footpaths. If you have a small dog you might be able to lift them over, or if you don't have a dog, this would be a nice holiday. As it was, we came home early.

    We adored Drakes Barn. Beautiful barn set within a farm. Fantastic location for exploring East Devon and Dorset. Great local amenities.

    Drakes Barn is tucked away in an incredibly lovely patch of lush green countryside, and it serves as a tempting reminder of the appeal of relocation and retirement from urban life. The cottage itself is incredibly charming as well as amply comfortable, and we spent a highly enjoyable week making full use of the kitchen, the fireplace, and other amenities. Caroline and David are incredibly welcoming, well-informed, and helpful on all fronts. The location is also perfect for day-trips down to the coast of Devon and Dorset for meandering walks, days at the beach, and so forth. All in all, Drakes Barn is a real find. I can recommend it in only the strongest terms.

    Had a lovely Easter break in this cottage. It felt very cosy with the wood burner just what you need for a relaxing time. Although it's in a very peaceful spot you are not far from places to visit - ideal as we only ha the weekend. Looking forward to our next stay here again soon.
