    On arrival, we had a wonderful welcome by Sarah and Barry with their tray of tea, jam, flapjacks, farm eggs and milk. Our two kids and very active puppy found the garden perfect for playing in - safe and securely enclosed. We loved the location in the heart of Dartmoor National Park and really enjoyed the fact that Sarah and Barry's farm surrounded us from all sides. Cows, sheep, horses, chickens, cats, dogs, foxes, many rabbits and lots of birdlife were a real treat. Apparently, there's a resident grass snake who lives somewhere near the hot tub but we didn't meet her! The barn itself is so well equipped and everything has been carefully thought out. If you want to cook a roast or bake some cakes, the utensils are all there in the kitchen cupboards. No need to bring anything from home. If you are looking for a place to work on your laptop as you rest on the farm, then this is not for you! There is no Wifi BUT we loved that! It was so lovely to switch off from the internet for a week. The kids had no screen time, which was so refreshing and being together as a family over a game of cards on the patio was perfect! The only improvement we would comment on is the water situation in the showers. It can change suddenly from hot to freezing cold but that is not a deal-breaker by any means. This place is great not only for a family of four but also two couples or four friends, as both double beds can be made into twins and both bedrooms are ensuite. We will do our very best to return here again one day! Thank you Sarah and Barry :+)
