    • “( Corded ceiling light switch in ground floor shower room needs attention.) Beds and bedding were extremely comfortable. Everything in the property functioned well. Heating was good especially as we were resident during a cold snap. Good Wi-Fi broadband and mobile phone connections Neighbours were friendly. Pub in the village was good.”

    Mrs Chick, BRISTOL, October 2018

    • “1, Brooking Barn is a delightful, well equipped cottage, great for our 3 generation family. We loved the open plan living area, if anything the pictures do not do it justice. The location is good for lots of trips out and the walks down to the Sharpham Estate and into Totnes were really enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this place.”

    Mrs Aindow, Derby, October 2018

    • “The cottage inside was absolutely lovely, everything we could have wanted and the location was great. The one problem is that the small courtyard garden is clearly designed to attract bees. It’s absolutely full of them. I have never seen a garden with anything approaching this number of bees. This meant that we couldn’t use the garden or even keep the bifold doors open. My children are scared of bees. I think this should be made clear in the listing as it’s important information, especially in a cottage marketed at families. I book a cottage with a garden because of my children and would not have chosen this cottage if I had known about the bees. ***** Owner Response We are so sorry that the guests were bothered by bees. We haven't had any other reports and we haven't intentionally encouraged bees. We will take on board the feed back and ask the gardeners to move the bee loving plants away from the patio. Please let the guests know that if there is a problem, to please inform us as soon as it arises. We can then take advice and act accordingly.”

    Mrs McMahon, BROMLEY, August 2018

    • “lovely cottage in a beautiful village. The only disappointment was that the video didn't work and the televisions lost signal so the children couldn't watch any television.”

    Mrs Crosbie, STOCKPORT, July 2018

    • “Lovely, well furnished house. Beds especially luxurious. Staff very accommodating, took out the air fresheners and aired the house for me to avoid an allergic reaction I have. Very enjoyable.”

    Ms Gallagher, HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, July 2018

    • “1 Brooking Barn was just perfect! The owners have refurbished it to a very high standard and the quality of furniture and furnishings shows. The kitchen has everything you need for a self catering holiday. The lounge easily seats 5 and with the bifold doors open it’s just lovely. The beds are all really comfortable and the bed linen is quality (albeit a summer weight quilt in this heat would have been better ☀️) The village is so peaceful, you can unwind with a glass of wine whilst sitting in the lovely garden after busy day at one of the many coastal villages, all of which are only @30 mins away. You can also visit The Durant Arms, which is practically next door to the house, they serve great beers and good food. Totnes is 2 miles away and it’s a lovely town with independent shops, restaurants & bars for you to wander around. We’d recommend booking this cottage, and we loved it that much we’ve already booked again for next year!”

    Ms Cornish, Wakefield, June 2018

    • “Everything was great and the cottage very well equipped. Our big problem was that the beds have 10.5 tog duvets which made sleeping uncomfortable. I did contact Nikki about this but she said that they do not have lighter weight duvets available. This is a real disappointment as the cottage is very comfortable, clean and well equipped.”

    Mr Harris, Alcester, June 2018

    • “Great cottage, nice and comfortable and very well kitted out in a brilliant location, lots of fabulous things to do and visit in the area surrounded by beautiful countryside and coastal locations, one we will book again”

    Mr Heaton, Stoke-on-Trent, June 2018
