“Spacious, comfortable, ideal for families”
Reviewed August 2, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We stayed in Orchard Barn, part of Duvale Priory site, for a long weekend at the end of July. We are a large family and this was ideal for us in every way. Rosena our host was very friendly and helpful. The property is very spacious with fantastic downstairs connecting living rooms and a large kitchen and dining area. The bedroom areas are great, there are three separate staircases so each family unit could have their own space. There is also a large bedroom unit downstairs equipped for disabled living. We could all get together in the evening knowing our smallest children were safe to go to bed. There was space to be together as well as enough space to be away from each other (often a good idea with a large family!) There is a very large garden area, the kids played out safely every day, and the adults even managed a game of rounders away from the house! The property is very well equipped, it has its own car park, barbeque and pool table. Orchard Barn was very comfortable, I loved the decor with a country style feel and large sofas! Highly recommended, we are hoping to plan a return visit.

“Bentley Bedlam”
Reviewed May 14, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Wow, what a find, this place is amazing, the property has everything you need for a large family holiday, it’s location was very pretty.There was so much space for a large group and having the facility to all sit around one table was such a bonus (26). Im sure this won’t be our only visit. Thanks to Rosena who was extremely welcoming and ensuring we had everything we needed. We had lovely weather and the outdoor space was brilliant (BBQ, private garden).

“Wonderful family cottage”
Reviewed April 25, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The cottage was easy to find and we were given easy intructions on how to access the property by Rosena. It may be helpful though to have a sign on the driveway indicating which cottage is where as we had numerous people park outside on the first night who were staying in the cottages behind and were lost.

The property was very well equipped with two ovens (an essential when cooking for 20 people) and 3 fridge/freezers (which was very nice as we could keep all the food cold as well as the beers!) Also there were plenty of glasses, mugs and plates etc without the need to be washing up every ten minutes.

We stayed for a family weekend for my "big" birthday celebrations, with ages ranging from 2-79. The children loved being able to play with loads of space and the downstairs bedroom was handy for my in-laws who prefer to be downstairs.

The property is pet friendly although you cannot let dogs run free on the lawn which was a bit of a shame, but understandable due to the chickens.

The only criticism I would have on this property is that some of the bathrooms and downstairs loo room did not have locks on the doors. Also it was not easy to take the dogs for a walk as the initial bit of road leading to the walk to Bampton is a bit dangerous with no paths or verges.

All in all though, we had a wonderful weekend away and I would definitely return.

“THE place to have a reunion”

We have had a brilliant weekend at Orchard Barn with our family and friends, 26 in total. The house is well equipped and comfortable. Perfect for a relaxed weekend with 7 children. 19 adults and 2 dogs. Plenty of space for ball games in the garden,. A couple of idiosyncrasies with the plumbing but nothing to spoil the weekend. Ample parking and places to visit. Rosena was very welcoming and helpful. No hesitation in recommending Orchard Barn.

“Big Family Weekend”
Reviewed June 2, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

24 of us enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Orchard Barn. We aged from 2-----68. The three lounges helped every one to have space to be. Rosena made us feel at home and was quick to respond to any query. The barn is very family friendly, has a well equipped kitchen and a much needed dish washer. We were together for a wedding and the barn gave us a great space to celebrate family life together. The only problem is the family all want to know when we can do this again!!!

“Great family venue in beautiful countryside.”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Only real downside was the weather but many places to visit on both north and south Devon Coasts to suit all tastes. Accommodation was ideal for our extended family comprising 15 adults and 4 children spread over 3 generations. Living rooms cosy and comfortable and enough bedrooms/beds/bathrooms for the various family units. Private garden was ideal for ball games for the kids and not so old adults between the showers.

One criticism is that if, like us, you want to self cater, despite there being two kitchens, we struggled at times "bulk" cooking and had to borrow minor items (can opener that worked an scissors) from adjoining renters. The utensils, otherwise, were in plentiful supply but scattered around in various drawers. That said we coped and all had a great time.

As a venue for an extended family gathering, this is ideal. Not pretentious but very comfortable.
2nd kitchen could be better equipped (no fridge). Venue was not easy to find even with sat.nav.
All in all an ideal location.
