“Great barn in a beautiful location”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2015

A very warm welcome from the owner (and bottle of wine!) and the barn is even nicer than the pics on the website show you. Plympton barn is set in glorious countryside and only a 10 minute walk to the lovely South Sands beach. It is beautifully finished and decorated with great touches throughout and a great location for exploring the many nearby attractions (Salcombe, East Portlemouth Beach etc.). We travelled as a family of 4 (children 8 and 10) and was perfect for us. We look forward to coming back!

We were the first time in the south of England. From this beautiful landscape we are very impressed. In our house Plympton Barn we immediately felt very comfortable. Everything is very tastefully decorated. There was nothing missing. We can recommend as House unreservedly continue and we will definitely come back. Margitta and Matthias from Zwickau, Germany

“A perfect barn in a perfect location”

Reviewed 5 May 2015

Plympton barn is the perfect retreat after a day out in beautiful Salcombe or a neighbouring town. I stayed here with my husband and two small children for a week and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The barn has been carefully designed to accommodate a comfortable stay. The bedrooms, bathroom and separate toilet are downstairs along with a utility room housing a washing machine, iron etc. Very useful. The hallway leading you to each of these rooms is wide giving you the feeling of space. Upstairs is an open plan kitchen/dining room and living room with balcony. The views are delightful. The sofas are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. On arrival a lovely bunch of wild flowers greeted us as well as a delicious bottle of red. A nice little touch I thought and very appreciated after our long drive down to Devon. I am a frequent visitor to this area and I will definitely be returning to the barn. Anyone looking to stay here please don't hesitate. You will not be disappointed.

“Idyllic and tranquil - a little bit of paradise”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2015

We stay in salcombe every year but never stayed in this location before, but would not hesitate to go back tomorrow! The walk from the barn to the beach is just idllyic and with our little one there were so many things that kept her entertained. The barn itself was beautiful. The bathrooms and bedrooms were done to such a high standard it felt luxurious. The idea of having your living area upstairs worked perfect with the balcony and you can enjoy the magical views looking onto cows and sheep fields. Perfect forthr 3 of us and would definitely go back again for longer

Owner's reply: Dear Guests, thank you very much for the kind comments. We look forward to welcoming you next time!

“Lovely Barn”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2014

Great barn, nicely done out, very tasteful. Fantastic location - quiet and beautiful, 20mins walk from South Sands. Great places to eat (Winking Prawn) and fab coastal walks direct from the Barn. Our hosts were also very amenable too! Highly recommended.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review! Very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you again!

“Comfortable barn conversion which was a great base to explore South Devon”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2014

We were a bit unsure on arrival at the barn partly because of the narrow road it was on and struggling to get a sense of location relative to everything else. However an evenings exploration around the local vicinity and acclimatising to the narrow roads ( which we now realise are par for the course in south Devon) made us feel much more settled. The accommodation itself is great and our kids (14 and 9) loved the fact that the living area was upstairs and bedrooms/bathroom on the ground-floor. The bathroom/wetroom was great with underfloor heating and the the kitchen was really well equipped. The living space was comfortable with a lovely log burner which we didn't need to use as we got a great week's weather. The barn is about a mile from South Sands beach by road and a little longer to North Sands via road and pathway through the woods. Walking on the narrow road was fine as road users didn't drive fast and it was easy to hear traffic coming - everyone gets used to coming across walkers and other traffic and initial concerns quickly subsided. Salcombe is easily accessed by car either via the coast route or via Malborough. During our week we spent time at North Sands beach, walked to Bolt head (from the barn), Bigbury on Sea (great beach), Dartmoor (cycling the Granite way), Salcombe, Paignton and Dartmouth, returning every evening to relax in the tranquillity of the Barn. The owners are welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and provided lots of useful information before arrival.

“A little place of Heaven on Earth”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2014

We stayed at Plympton Barn last week and we had a fantastic week. The barn is lovely and very well equipped and newly decorated to a high quality! The barn has a lovely view out at the fields and you can see the cows and horses from the balcony. The area around Southsand is beautiful... You can hang out on the beach for a day and watch the tide, eat lunch at the hotel, rent a paddle board or take the boat to Salcombe. It's perfect for relaxing and checking out from busy life (especially as there is near to no mobile coverage in the area, so get a web based app like smart talk before you go) If you are into yoga and want a fun experience i can recommend the SUP (stand up paddle board) Yoga session at 9am - fun, challenging and very calming. Lots to do if you want to venture out, Dartmoor national park, Burgh Island etc. Plympton Barn's website has some good suggestions as well.

“Beautiful barn tucked away in Devon.”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2014

My family stayed at Plympton Barn in April 2014. We were delighted with the location and the barn itself exceeded our expectations. It is beautifully furnished with all the home comforts - we particularly enjoyed the underfloor heating! Glorious! We are definitely planning another visit!

“A beautifully appointed farm property away from the crowds”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2013

This is a lovely barn conversion, well equipped with everything you need for one or two weeks. Booking was easy and the owner provides a lot of information in advance. Everything works well, very clever light sensors, good parking. Access is down narrow lanes typical of Devon. It is located in a quiet rural location away from the crowds. It is maybe 2 or 3 miles from the coast so you need car to get good access to local beach and to other areas of interest. It is a great venue for a log stove, glass of wine, good walk and good book type of break.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review, really glad you enjoyed your stay! Just for info to future guests: the distance to the closed beach 1.1 miles or slightly closer by foot.
