Our extended family (including the hound) spent a charming week at the Barn in early April. Leaving was difficult. No - it was VERY difficult. The setting was like a warp in time - rolling green field, narrow roads where people have to exercise courtesy, the primroses just growing "al fresco," the quaint villages, the sky and clouds, and the amazing walks.... what more can one want? But there was more! And that "more" was Cotmore Farm with its Andalusian roosters making no secret of their importance, the tiny newborn lambs walking all over their mother (we missed the birth of the others), the horses and their warm noses, the pigs, and (I admit) my favorite... the law-enforcement quartet aka Indian ducks. We could also go get eggs! Not cartons, not white or brown, but multi-colored pastel eggs laid by hens free to roam and enjoy their hen lives under the watchful eyes of the roosters (and law enforcement). We truly enjoyed talking with the hosts and learning from them. Had it not been a working farm, I suspect we would have made a terrible nuisance of ourselves and been in their hair all the time asking all sorts of questions. Please ask them for suggestions as to where to go for a nice dinner, what to see, etc. They know and are happy to share! Had any of us had talent (and time) for writing - we could have made a book out of this experience! As for The Barn - what can I say. It wasn't missing a thing - everything was there to make our stay as pleasant as possible. And... there's a nice selection of books so no need to drag your own. I could go on and on.... but I think I made my point.

“Absolutely fabulous place to stay especially for children”

New born lambs, hens, pigs, horses - a child's idea of heaven. Dog friendly, great location near beaches, very comfortable beds, spacious accommodation with all mod cons. Woodburner for cold weather, terrace and French doors for warm weather. All in all parents idea of heaven. Lovely hosts and welcome pack with lots of goodies including home made bread and jam, chocolate, pretty eggs from the hens and more. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and will be returning. Piers and his family have got their holiday accommodation spot on.We're already waxing lyrical about The Barn to friends already.

“Relaxing and beautiful spot”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This barn is in a perfect location -close to the sea, villages, great food, sites - while still removed enough that you feel, well, that you are down on the farm! The animals and trampoline are great for kids (ok, and adults) while the outdoor space and barn offers plenty of room to lounge and enjoy your holiday. We came back so relaxed and loved discovering this corner of south Devon.

We stayed here over the Easter weekend; Piers was very helpful prior to our arrival and made the necessary arrangements for a cot and high chair to be provided. We were greeted on arrival and Piers made us feel very welcome on the farm, the welcome basket was also very generous. The barn is lovely and cosy and the our daughter loved walking around the farm looking at all the different animals. Unfortunately we didn't have very good weather so didn't get to see too much of the local area, but the Barn is in a great location to get around and see many of Devon's beautiful sights. We would definitely recommend the Barn to friends and family as a place to stay in the future.

Just before Easter we had a very relaxing long weekend at Cotmore Farm; myself, my 2 daughters and our airedale terrier. Piers and Sue were very welcoming. The Barn was perfect and it's a lovely peaceful spot to unwind, but still very accessible. We visited our favourite beaches at Thurlestone, Bantham and Bigbury, enjoyed great food at The Tradesmans Arms and Stokeley Farm Shop and not forgetting Piers homemade sausages! We love Dartmouth and spent an enjoyable afternoon browsing the art and gift shops. The South Hams is a lovely part of Devon and we hope to be back soon.
