“Amazing.....”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A group of 8 of us stayed at Blackdown Barn for my sisters hen weekend. We knew by the pictures that it was going to be beautiful, but to be honest, the pictures don't even do it the justice it deserves.

The barn was truly amazing. Beautifully presented and every aspect had been thought about. Even the little things, the bed linen and towels smelt beautiful, sachets of shampoo and conditioner a little hamper full of someof the basics and of course scones, jam and clotted cream. Absolutely perfect.

The countryside surrounding the property and the views are amazing. The property is secluded and has access to a beautiful garden, almost meadow like, which is hidden behind a row of trees. It was very peaceful. perfect for a picnic or a morning cup of coffee in your Pj's and wellies. The pool is heated and was used by some of our group. It is a stones throw away from the barn.

All in all, we had a perfect weekend at Blackdown Barn and all came home with some wonderful memories and at some point we will be back, probably with husband's and kids in tow this time round.

“Comfy, clean, contemporary - highly recommend!”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

A gorgeous barn, so warm and homely and comfortable. Seated 15 of us during film times, playing games and general chill out comfortably. The huge medieval style dining table suited our dinner parties well. Beds were the most comfortable i've ever slept on and the few extra heads that came managed to sleep in the barn alcoves. Soft, fragrant linen, bedding, towels all provided. Spent New Years Eve here and it was the best New Years ever!

“This place is AMAZING!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

I could not recommend this place enough, it's absolutely perfect for a big group of friends! The owners are extremely helpful from the off and made our stay 100% perfect. We arrived late Friday evening and were swiftly shown around the Barn and all it's fantastic bits n pieces, then left to our own devices. No expenses have been spared on the Barn's interior and furniture, it's extremely comfy. Also, for such a large open area the insulation is fantastic and you'll feel extremely snug and cosy! Although there are only three rooms, the sofa beds in the main room provide additional beds. Plenty of bedding is also provided and some of us actually slept up on one of the mezzanines, very warm and no problem whatsoever.We'll be back for sure!!

“Are you sure we can't stay forever?”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

If you're considering staying here stop thinking and just book it. I promise you will not be disappointed. A fantastic welcome from the owners - in spite of us turning up late. A georgeous location with excellent links for exploring the south west. I cannot rate Blackdown Barn highly enough, from the little details like what complementary supplies can the owners provide for your arrival; choices on bread, milk, cereal and a lovely welcome basket complete with Devon cream tea. To 5 star hotel fluffy towels and a bed I wish I could take home. Thank you so much for making my special birthdays celebrations ever better.

“Clean plenty of room lots to do and lovely owners”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I plus my son and wife and daughter husband and four children stayed at the barn. We always have a holiday together, but this was the best, we could all be together but do our own thing. The weather was beautiful and we had a job to get the children to go out and see about (and us) all they wanted to do was be in the lovely warm pool. It was lovely to all eat together at the beautiful huge table and have a game of pool and watch 3d tv together with popcorn and a glass of wine. My son-in-law even used the gym. Perfect holiday ..
