“great cottage in the fields”
Reviewed August 13, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Really had a great time in and around this place. If you don´t love the countryside you will after a visit. A warm welcome by the Goulden family and in the area around was plenty to do, walking, fishing, cycling, beach, horsebackriding, picking berries in the wood and real rest along side the river. ( 300 M walk via own field brought you to a great bbq spot along the river!) It was all wonderfull and the kids loved it aswell. they played with the families childeren and enjoyed the space. i would really recommend this cottage! Thank you Ben and Caroline for all kind assitence and we really appreciated your kind hospitallity. Best Jan & Fam.

“Relaxing family holiday”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a great time at Barnfield cottage. The location was quiet, the view was beautiful and the cottage even better then in the pictures. We also did a bit of exploring whilst we were there. We went to Canonteign Falls a good 30 minutes drive by car. We went up the fall with our 18 months old (in a child carrier which they rent there for £2.50)! 1 hour up and 30 minutes down! Such good fun. Really recommend.
My one advice is that you go do a big shop on the way to the cottage otherwise the closest big supermarket (in this case Sainsburys) is 20 minutes drive and both ways it add up!

“Peaceful and Perfect”
Reviewed May 18, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My only regret is that I only stayed for three nights. A really lovely barn conversion, spotlessly clean and very comfortable indeed. The owners were always available but unobtrusive, and Caroline was extremely kind and concerned when I hurt myself (completely my own fault) even buying me some chocolate!
It was very peaceful there with beautiful views. I shall definitely go back but will stay longer next time. Thank you

Reviewed March 21, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing weekend at this idyllic retreat. The beds are very comfortable, the accommodation immaculately clean and the upstairs lounge/ dining area with its roof beams, wood burning fire and gorgeous views of the countryside is really something special. It was the perfect base for our first trip to Dartmoor!

“Cracking Cottage in Devon Countryside.”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

We had a lovely, relaxing trip in Dunsford, just south of Exeter.

The cottage itself was lovely. The airy, open plan living accommodation on the first floor with kitchen, dining and sitting area were all nicely appointed and we absolutely loved the log burner (must come again in the winter). Lots of space up there for the children to charge around while we were admiring the vineyard!

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, with a bathroom adjacent to each (one acts as the master bathroom as well as an en suite). All very tidy and we are looking forward to coming back!
