    We enjoyed a great week at Hayes Meadow! Owner + manager were extremely friendly and helpful with any questions/ issues that arose. Would recommend the community cafe for a lovely cooked breakfast! Our children loved playing in the gardens and throwing tennis balls for Megan (family dog). Accommodation was surprisingly spacious and was more than enough for our family of four. Everything was extremely clean and tidy and we were all impressed with the cottage. The only cottage we’ve stayed in that we all want to return to! Thanks again for a lovely stay!!

    Lovely cottage and lovely people. We stayed at Christmas and they had decorated it for us :) Could not have found a better place to stay. We did not use any of the garden or outside amenities because of time of year. Would certainly book again.

    This was our fourth stay at Hayes Barn and once again it was very enjoyable. The village is very pretty and quiet with superb local walking. The only slight problem this time as that the excellent village pub, the Red Lion was temporarily not serving food. There is another very good alternative in the next village, Sampford Courtney but that is a short drive away.

    Nice setting - kitchen minute - despite taking pets we felt they were not really welcome. External lighting non functional over uneven ground and steps.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Pet dogs are welcome but we only accept a maximum of two small dogs. Sometimes guests arrive with large breeds unsuitable for the property and we are strict in not allowing pets in bedrooms or on furniture. With respect to external lighting, there was a temporary problem when security lights did not work properly but that has been fixed sometime ago now.
