“Ticked all the boxes!”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

From the welcome cream tea, to the well equipped cottage, to the helpful hosts, to the glorious South Devon countryside, Higher Hendham Cottages ticked all the boxes for our short break. I couldn't recommend them more highly to anyone! The only downside was having to leave....

“The Perfect Place To Stay”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

After a long journey it was lovely arrive at Swallow Barn to a warm and friendly welcome.
Beautiful surroundings with chickens and alpacas and a nice play area for children.
We found Swallow barn to be very clean, inviting and comfortable, catering for all our needs.
We cannot think of anything missed out or that we would change in any way.
It was a lovely Easter break for us, our two teenagers and 10 year old and our dog.We all loved it.
Thank you Judy and Mike for a lovely stay at Swallow Barn, all your efforts were realized and appreciated.
Anyone choosing to staying here will not be disappointed.

“Excellent holiday location with great facilities”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Swallow Barn is an excellent place for those seeking to get away in a peaceful and relaxing environment. The facilities are just as described.The kids thoroughly enjoyed using the play area to the extent that they abandoned their gadgets throughout our stay; my son especially got involved feeding the chickens every morning. We visited Bantham beach, Woodlands Amusement park (Totnes) and went to Kents Cavern in Torquay, all within easy reach. Our stay was made even more pleasant by our excellent hosts - Mike and Judy (special thanks to you both). I have no reservations in recommending a stay here to anyone.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Having booked a last minute break with "odd" days to start and finish we couldn't be more satisfied. Judy was very accommodating with the booking. We loved the barn. It is so comfortable, homely and welcoming. Even more welcoming with the lovely touches like Devon cream tea for us both, fresh eggs from the girlies, homemade jam, flowers, bread, butter etc, thank you so much. The bed was very comfortable. It was warm and plenty of hot water, no scrimping on anything here, everything you need in the barn, alot of thought has gone into this holiday home. The surroundings are lovely and the Alpacas fascinating. Can imagine in the Summer months this is even more appealing. Our weather wasn't great but this didn't stop us exploring. We had good recommendations from Judy and visited Bantham Beach and Beesands which Roxy our black Labrador absolutely loved. The weather did not spoil anything for us. The pub recommendations were good. The barn is central to explore much of South Devon. We have stayed in South Hams before in Kingston but this location wins hands down for us. Thank you for a fantastic stay

“Lovely cottage with lovely hosts”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed as a family of three in Swallow Barn. We had friends in the neighbouring Woodpecker barn which was an ideal set up. Our cottage was neat and tidy and very well equipt. The highlight of the stay for my young son was feeding the chickens every morning. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome during our stay and were sad to leave!
