“Perfect all year round”
Reviewed 19 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I know I've reviewed Dunsley barn before but after having another wonderful week here I wanted to share this amazing place again. Your hosts Helen & John could not be more welcoming, they pay attention to every detail so your stay is the most comfortable, relaxing and happy holiday. The gardens are beautiful all year round but I must mention Helen's hanging baskets.... AMAZING!!!!!! They both work incredibly hard on the gardens and when the sun is shining and you're sitting in the decking area beside the stream you will not want to be anywhere else in the world.

“Dunsly Mill Heaven in Devon”
Reviewed 2 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

I can't recommend this place enough, its perfect for families with young children or for couples wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The barn is gorgeous and very comfortable and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Its sits in the middle of beautiful countryside ideal for walking or horse-riding over Exmoor.
Helen and John are the perfect hosts and really do care that your stay is one that you'll enjoy. They have thought of everything, the kitchen is fully equipped and there is a barbecue available, however there are so many wonderful places to eat at very reasonable prices you'll be spoilt for choice.
I cant imagine going to this part of the world and staying anywhere else and this is evident with other guests as they have so many of us return year after year.
we're always sad to leave but look forward to our return

“Serene”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We only managed to book at last minute through someone else's cancellation. Really glad we did the place is beautiful, quiet (except for the Guinea fowl ) very tranquil. Best weeks sleep in years. Can't praise enough. Very friendly hosts, accommodation well thought out & comfortable. Away from it all bliss

Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Mill is beautiful and surrounding area, although a little remote. Helen and John very friendly and helpful. Fab scenery and plenty to see with a car. Welcome pack very generous too. Would go back if it was with bigger party

“We cannot rate this accommodation highly enough”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We've stayed here several times before, and are always made feel so welcome.
Helen and John are the perfect hosts and offer such a friendly and personal service, they've obviously spent a lot of time and money on keeping the barn & grounds in excellent order, each time we've been we've noticed something new or redecorated. Attention has been paid to detail especially the things that matter, milk in the fridge, freshly laid eggs and a toiletry bag for each guest.
The barn has a really calm and homely feel so you feel relaxed even before you've unpacked. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for a family meal and a BBQ is available for those beautiful sunny days, however there are so many great places to eat nearby you'll be spoilt for choice.
This is the ideal 'Home from home' place to stay for every kind of family from young children who will love the ponies, guinea foul, dogs and sheep, walkers have the beautiful Exmore or if you just want to relax you have got to try this little piece of Heaven.
