We really appreciated Rick and Nicky's excellent 'customer service', going above and beyond to help - arranging extended car parking, helping organize a taxi, etc. The venue itself is good, with a 'motel' feel to the ground-floor room we were in. In other words you come straight into your bedroom from the drive/path itself. This means you can see folks...

We stayed two nights at the Ivy Barn during our walk on Southwest Coast Path. The room was very clean and comfortable. Lots of hot water in the shower. The hosts, Nicky & Rik, were the best part of the stay. The breakfast was the best we had on our whole trip, especially Rik's porridge with Devonshire Cream--kept us filled...

We recently had a pleasant couple of nights here when we came to kayak on the Erme estuary. The room was a decent size with the usual facilities including a decent ensuite. The twin beds were wider than normal and very comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is ordered the night before and had many choices. I had...

The ivy barn was in a chocolate box type village beautiful church in grounds. Rick and Nicki were the superb hosts. Breakfast was fantastic and our accommodation was excellent. There was a pub opposite who served good food and a convenience store. Would recommend.

We had such a good time in Holbeton and at the Ivy Barn B&B! The village is a lovely place amidst wonderful scenery and the owners are so very welcoming. The village is quiet but has a shop with post office, a pub and a lovely church, as well as nice opportunities for longer walks around the village. Worth staying...

On route to Cornwall I broke my journey at the Ivy Barn. Rik and Nikki are the friendliest people you could wish to meet. Excellent room and a magnificent breakfast that sets you up for the day. Both the property and the proprietors have real character.

We stayed for three nights in this wonderful B&B and been fortunate enough to experience wonderful service. The new owners can't do enough for all their guests and our breakfasts were perfect. We will certainly be returning as there is so much to do in the area we just about scratched the surface on this occasion. Thank you Nicky and...

Stayed here by chance following a day out on the moors. Wow, fantastic location in the heart of the small village of Holbeton. In close proximity to the church and across the road from the local pub. A little quirky (but we like that) having to go outside to go to breakfast, but Rik & Nicky have thought about that...
