“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just (begrudgingly) returned from an amazing week at the granary and our first family holiday with our 7 month old.

The cottage is hidden away providing stunning views of rolling hills, grazing sheep and a tranquil atmosphere.

The place is absolutely spotless with care and attention to detail has obviously gone into the design, maintenance and overall guest experience.

The welcome gifts of fresh eggs and wine is a lovely touch and the kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils you could require and even spices and oil is provided.

The bathroom is luxurious with a wonderful step down shower with lovely hot water!

The family (including the beautiful dogs) are friendly and helpful but not intrusive (the perfect hosts).

The location is great for visiting the coast, the moors and an array of national trust properties. Parke is close by and we strongly recommended a visit to the farm cafe for tea and cake!

Can't recommend this place enough book it now!!

“Wonderful accommodation with lovely owners”
Reviewed 16 March 2015 for a stay in August 2014

I booked last year for myself and my teenage daughter to stay in the Granary while she was attending a summer ballet school in nearby Dartington. On the day that we arrived, Sarah explained in detail about the accommodation, area etc. While we were chatting, we also found out that she was a professional dancer/performer and now teaches at Dartington, so her and my daughter had lots to talk about during our stay!! Sarah and Nick (the owners) were very helpful and offered excellent advice about places to visit during the day and places to eat but were never intrusive. Their 3 dogs became almost like our own for the week and came on walks with us, showing us which way to go if we hesitated. The accommodation is lovely and had everything we needed and more. Almost 7 months later, my daughter is still talking about it and wants to go back again this summer! We both look forward to returning in the not too distant future!
