Myself and 9 friends have just spent the weekend at Blackdown Barn, and I felt compelled to write a review on our fantastic stay. The barn itself is an amazing space, with beautiful furniture and fantastic amenities (the pictures don't do it justice) and we were all blown away, It's location is very accessible, which was perfect for our group as we're based in various parts of the country, so a big positive.
We're an enthusiastic bunch when we get together, and thankfully Hugo, Michaela and family are very understanding!

It's definitely the perfect place for a get together with family or friends with an abundance of space to 'make some shapes' if the mood takes you, but also escape to a quiet corner if you've over indulgenced and need to recharge.
We'd all love to return with our families if the opportunity arose, probably for a slightly more relaxing stay than the one we've just had, but I have no doubt that it would be equally enjoyable.

“Awesome location for my partners 40th!”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I booked this amazing barn to celebrate my partners 40th. I was looking for a roomy place for a large group of family and friends to have fun but also to chill, somewhere fairly local for everyone and somewhere that looked like it had a bit of a 'wow' factor! Blackdown Barn did not dissapoint in any way from the moment we stepped inside! It was beautiful and met all our needs. The barn had ample linen, towels and complimentary toiletries. Also the thoughtful owners left a large hamper of edible goodies including some delicious scones and cream. The children especially enjoyed the outdoor heated pool and the more than several games on the pool table. The barn was warm, welcoming and comfortable and nobody wanted to leave!

“Amazing 5* barn in gorgeous setting!”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The pictures do not do this holiday home justice. Went for my husbands birthday weekend with all the family (10 adults, 2 children (1in ready bed) and 1 baby which a cot was provided for). Close to lots of attractions in Devon. Visited Crealy which was only 20mins away, great fun for all the family. The barn had everything you needed and Michaela and Hugo couldn't have made us more welcome on arrival. We even had a hamper full of treats provided :-). The pool was clean and warm which everyone enjoyed using. The pool table was in constant use.
The barn is easy to find from the M5.
No one wanted to leave and go back to reality.
We will definitely be returning to Blackdown Barn :-).

“Wonderful place - couldn't ask for more!”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We've just returned from a week at Blackdown Barn with my two sons (aged 6 and 3). It was a great base for visiting sites and attractions in Devon. It was everything we could have wanted in a holiday home: comfortable, loads of space, plus lots of lovely little touches, such as a welcome hamper and board games for the rainy days. Thank you! Highly recommended.
