My wife and I plus our adult daughter stayed here for 5 nights in July. It is surprisingly spacious - large eat in kitchen with separate utility, spacious hallway with lots of cupboard space, downstairs shower room, comfortable lounge with two settees and an arm chair plus flat screen TV and DVD player. Upstairs was a large master bedroom (with standard double bed) with spacious en suite bathroom and a second double with with twin beds.
Well equipped and very spacious for 4 people and set in a large private garden this is a super holiday cottage for exploring the lovely Blackdown hills or driving 45 minutes south to the coast. Helen the owner was very welcoming as were her many blond labradors and there was a large hot tub we could have used plus a trampoline on the lawn.
Any downsides? A few but nothing major. Its a shame the main bed is not a big double - the room is big enough. The wi fi is not overly fast and the router seems to lose its connection once or twice an evening, and the kitchen could perhaps do with some new saucepans. …
Stayed here for a family wedding, good value for family of 5
The owners ,Bernd and Janet, of The Barn are lovely, very friendly and helpful.
The Barn is quite close to their house in their garden, the garden is hugh.
I would say the style of furniture is eclectic and some things do need to be changed/updated. The bathroom shower has a tendencey to leak on the floor so probably an upgrade would be good however it was a good strength shower and we never run out of hot water.
The Barn would benefit from a bit more cleaning , I know the ceilings at points are high but there were some major cobwebs.
I think The Barn is good value for money, with 5 of us it's hard to find places we can stay together with outdoor space for the kids to run around that aren't super expensive although if it was done up abit I would of paid abit more, it has the potential to be amazing. …
