    • “I very much enjoyed my stay at Old Armoury Barn. It's the perfect place to stay if you want to be right in the centre of Ashburton and yet have peace, and lovely views. There's no traffic noise at all. The upstairs sitting room and kitchen are modern and well designed, spacious and full of light. They look out over the rooftops and the hills beyond. The house is comfortable (including good mattresses) and well-equipped. I stayed in winter and the house was very warm. I was impressed by the efficiency of the electric radiators, and how easy it was to adjust the heat in each room. The owners were unfailingly helpful and kind. It was a real pleasure to have fresh flowers in the sitting room and bedrooms, and to be greeted with tasty home baked scones, with jam and clotted cream. The only improvements I'd suggest would be a salad spinner, small size paring and chopping knives, and one really comfortable high-backed armchair for those of us who are older and need a bit more support when sitting.”

    Ms Fraser, Newton Abbot, January 2019

    • “We really enjoyed our time at the Old Armoury. The owners went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed. The accommodation was beautifully designed, spacious and comfortable. And the location was amazing - right by the shops and restaurants, but totally quiet (apart from the church bells ;) You do need a narrow car though! The little lane is only 7 foot wide!”

    Mr Bacon, Colchester, October 2018

    • “The cottage is everything and more that you would wish for in a holiday cottage. The owner is very welcoming and a cream tea is waiting for you on arrival. We could not fault the cottage itself or the owner. Negotiating the extremely narrow entrance and car parking space into Tanners Yard was the only drawback. We have a C-Max and with the side mirrors in there were only millimetres to spare and one of us needed to be outside guiding the driver through. However, parking is available in the nearby public carpark. This is only a short distance away but you have to pay.”

    Mrs Chapman, Addlestone, September 2018

    • “The cottage was fantastic, spotlessly clean and with everything we needed. Cannot recommend it enough.”

    Dr Chambers, Hitchin, September 2018
