Oakleaf is a delightful, characterful but modern barn conversion in a peaceful, sylvan setting.

The stunning sitting room/lounge has oak beams and bags of character. Great to put your feet up!
Another view of the huge lounge area which features oak flooring and lovely soft sofas.
There are great views over the 20 acres from all the upstairs windows.
Bedroom one is a very large luxury room that promises a good night's sleep.
The ensuite for bedroom one with roll-top bath, bidet and shower. A real luxury experience!
The large shower has everything you need and bags of room.
Bedroom two is spacious and also has a double bed and ensuite alongside.
The luxury ensuite for bedroom two also has a roomy well-equipped shower.
The spacious downstairs hallway leads to the kitchen/dining, cloakroom, utillity + bedroom 2.
The useful downstairs cloakroom is straight off the hallway.
The very practical utility room is also straight off the hallway.
The feature oak staircase is the height of luxury.
Another view of the long hallway that connects all the rooms on the ground floor.
Oakleaf faces south with restful views over padocks and the surrounding countryside.
With 20 acres to explore you'll find many enticing corners, including this babbling trout strea
There are many rural activities in the area including walking, cycling, fishing and horse riding.

“Nice area and house but unclean and damp. No wifi either!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The views from the garden were gorgeous and the area was great, right next to dartmoor national park. Nick, Sandra and their son were nice and so were their animals. But the house was in desperate need of a clean and a lick of paint. Coffee stains and sticky tables and floors, grubby furniture, rugs and walls. The walls were also covered with mould :( we have a baby and I had to wipe down surfaces and keep him off the floors. Don't really want to clean someone else's house on holiday!!!

Plus the wifi only sometimes worked if you stand in the corner of the living room in front of the TV !!!!! And when u add that to the fact u have no phone signal, u are completely cut off from the world, which some people may like..... I didn't!

We don't understand why you wrote this review after writing in the visitor's book, and I quote
"Amazingly gorgeous house and surroundings. This is Ashton's first holiday! he loves the chickens. Thanks for an amazing week and we will be coming back again soon. Most importantly Ashton had a great time on his first holiday."
In response to your comments we would like to say that we clean the house personally and pride ourselves on the presentation of Oakleaf.
The floors are waxed oak floor boards which are cleaned with a steam mop every week, this can make the bee's wax a little tacky for a while, maybe that is what you felt.
The walls did have signs of mould after you left, this was caused by the heating being turned up to 25 degrees and all the trickle vents being shut. Old cob building need to breath, and heating them up to such temperatures with out letting them breath causes them to sweat. Your actions have caused a knock on effect that we are still dealing with.
Oakleaf has an annual redecoration program, this happens in early June as the warmer weather helps the building cope with the moisture of repainting.
On the bright side, we are glad Ashton enjoyed his first holiday

“Wow, what a place!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This is the best place we have ever stayed in Devon. A real entedote to normal, busy lives.
A truly fantastic property, we fely instantly at home and had all the amenities we could wish for.
Everything was beautifully clean and inviting, we couldn't fault a thing, even the damp weather didn't get us down!
The welcome gifts and fresh flowers were a lovely touch too and the owners and animals very friendly and welcoming.
A real gem 10/10 from me.
