Booked a late, short break getaway. Sweet Rose was lovely with a very comfy bed – I slept so well – wonderful bath (which is saying something as a shower lover), bath towels and most useful off road parking.

We came for a rest from family life and got this from lovely Sweet Rose. The peace and quiet with the birds singing in the day. Perfect position to see everything in the area with even a bus stop around the corner to take you to Torquay and beyond – used car twice! Thank you to Martin, Kim and the girls for all the help we received. The lovely gifts which made it special, made our fortnight extra special.

We came for the good location, enclosed garden for the dogs, attractive spiral stairs and the crazy bath in the bedroom! We had a fantastic, relaxing holiday. All the info and tips helped us have a better holiday as we explored Watcombe and Babbacombe Beaches, Brunel Woods and the Thatched Tavern along the way! Useful local shops just a stroll away was great. Thank you for kind hospitality.

Sweet Rose was just spot on for us. Excellent amenities and in a great location to explore Torquay and the natural coastline. The information packs with own ‘walks’ were brilliant. Thank you for the warm welcome and the privacy you afforded us.

Honeysuckle is a lovely cottage in a great location that allowed us to bring our dog. Everything was perfect. Exploring out we enjoyed visits to the Barn Owl, Brixham, Totnes and Torquay – all great. Thank you for a lovely stay and for a warm welcome and look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future.

Perfect yet again for a stress free, dog friendly escape! We just love the peace and cosiness of our cottage time and again. As usual Beryl, and us, are sad to leave. Thank you, Martin and Kim, for another fantastic stay.

We’ve loved our stay in that we found through Homeaway and chose for its location, facilities and that it was dog friendly. It did not disappoint! We loved eating at the Cary Arms, visiting Goodrington Sands, paddle boarding in the sunshine in October and the long coastal walks or picnics on the beaches before returning to our lovely, warm – home from home and more. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome and catering for our every need.

Our 5th stay at these barns. Fantastic week away as always – we will be back again next year. Everything we need is here – we even wanted a rubber bathmat for Fred and Martin went out and bought one! So dog friendly, beautifully clean on arrival and just so comfy. With great shops close by and all we want to see when exploring – perfect. Thank you again Martin and Kim for making a memorable holiday.

We came for a relaxing break and got exactly that. Threshing Barn is a beautiful property. Rooms clean and tidy with comfortable beds and all the amenities we could want. Located in a very nice place – easy to travel around. We loved the Babbacombe Model Village and our trip to Dartmoor. Thank you once again, we really had a lovely time and are looking forward to coming back again in the future!

We have been a few times before and found it just as lovely, with a few nice new touches – oak dining table, settees and rocking lamb! As always very relaxing. We love visiting Paignton Zoo and this time also went to their sister place, Living Coasts with local Chinese takeaway and bakery always a must. Thank you as always. This place always creates nice memories.

Tracey, Ian and the family 
 
Booked through owner’s direct – made very easy because of Martin; a lovely host. The barn was spotless on arrival. All the amenities we wanted. Cosy, warm, spacious and family friendly. We enjoyed eating at Rock Fish in Brixham as well as our round robin trip to Dartmouth – a perfect place with lots to see and do Happily come again and recommend to friends. A big thank you to Martin – met on our arrival. So helpful and friendly – always on hand if we needed advice or help. Couldn’t ask for any more.
