Enjoy great walks on the Blackdown Hills, and with the cathedral city of Exeter anf Hugh Fernley Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen close by.

In a glorious setting in the Blackdown Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and between Honiton and Chard, lie The Barns around a cobbled yard. Both detached holiday barn conversions are decorated and furnished to a good standard and have their own gardens and fabulous views across the countryside. Situated in the grounds of the owner’s Grade II listed, medieval farmhouse, they are in an excellent location from which to explore numerous National Trust houses, great walks and the cathedral city of Exeter.

Situated between both Dartmoor and Exmoor National parks, both with brilliant walks, heather clad tors, ponies, rugged terrain and quaint villages. Within six miles there are local family run shops and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen. Shops 21/2 miles and pub 1½ miles.

    Very disappointed with extreme remote location, on entering the Hayloft it was extremely noticeable that there was an awful smell in property,I think that it hadn't been aired enough and it was a smell of damp!!!! Very off putting as it clung to all our clothes and every single item taken had to be laundered on our return home. One car track road to get to property very daunting and people should be made aware of this extremely stressful !!!!!

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am sorry that the property had a damp smell which we hoped had been temporarily dealt with while we awaited professional help. Before receiving this review we had instigated specialised help to deal with the problem. It is a lovely old building with solid stone walls and needed professional help in the bedroom which has now been completed. It has subsequently been freshly painted and the contents cleaned again too. The property has had many years of use by happy holiday makers and we hope that it will now return to being enjoyed by our guests. We were pleased to see that these visitors gave us 10 for Comfort and Equipment and 10 for Cleanliness, as this experience has been a distressing one for us too, as we have tried hard to retain a good standard.

    It was a lovely cottage and set in beautiful countryside. The down side is this cottage is damp and myself and my husband have an as asthma problem. We threw open all the windows and doors and put the heating on as the damp hit you when we first went in. There is a large patch of damp on one of the outside walls. The cottage really needs Internet and phone signal! It is an ideal rural location and so quiet and peaceful.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are very sorry that you had problems during your stay. It is an old building and unfortunately some water, probably rainwater from months ago, had seeped through a wall into the edge of a carpet. This had caused the fustiness. It is not always a simple fix with old buildings but the carpet is being replaced by tiles and rugs to avoid this happening again. Currently we only have limited Wi-Fi. We are in a rural area and our property does not yet have superfast broadband, but it is scheduled to be received by January 2016 and with a new router should improve reception.

    A perfect palce to get away from it all with beautiful countryside views, though close to the coast too.The accomodation was exceptional,the extras that were provided was not expected but very much appreciated. The owners have made this a very welcoming place to stay.
