    “Overall the accommodation was good, except for the height restriction in the upper level.”

    This needs to be highlighted as even though my wife and I are not particularly tall, around 5' 8" to 5' 10" we both found moving around upstairs challenging. We also had problems with the signal for the TV. This would randomly glitch out making the programme we were viewing unwatchable and then some time later it would settle down. There was a message that came up about retuning the TV but as we didn't want to do any harm and not knowing the system in use we left well alone. We did just after ...

    This needs to be highlighted as even though my wife and I are not particularly tall, around 5' 8" to 5' 10" we both found moving around upstairs challenging. We also had problems with the signal for the TV. This would randomly glitch out making the programme we were viewing unwatchable and then some time later it would settle down. There was a message that came up about retuning the TV but as we didn't want to do any harm and not knowing the system in use we left well alone. We did just after arrival report the issue and while we were offered the use of the TV in the Owners/Cleaners home we declined. Luckily the issue abated that evening but ocurred again each evening following. When we reported the issue I was told nothing could be done as the person I was talking to didn't know how it worked. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and found the facilities good and in good order.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you experienced issues with the TV, this has not been reported previously. We understand that the glitch occurred with only one of the channels. Our caretaker has now reported that the TV is working properly and has checked with the current guests who do not seem to have the same problem. With regard to the upstairs headroom, the measurements are mentioned clearly in the property description so that guests are aware of this before they make a booking. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Abbey Cross Barn. Owner relations

The property

Along a country lane on the edge of the tranquil hamlet of Dunkeswell Abbey, half a barn converted into an interesting, rustic-looking, wood-clad cottage, light and airy inside.

Good-sized garden (table/chairs, barbecue) overlooking the owner's apple orchard and small field.

Inside, little glass-panelled lobby; pine-floored, L-shaped living/dining room with TV/DVD, iPod dock and French windows to terrace and garden; well-equipped modern kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker) with stable doors to terrace; bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Stairs up to small landing (5'6" headroom), off which two bedrooms under the eaves, both overlooking the garden and with limited clothes-hanging space - a double with low sloping ceilings and Velux window, and a twin with dormer window; loo (5'8" lintel, sloping ceiling).

Outside is a utility room with washing machine, tumble drier, sink and space for your bicycles.

Spring water.

A beautiful, peaceful place in which to relax. Dunkeswell Abbey: sheltered valley hamlet of a few cottages and the ruins of 13th cent.
