    • “We have been using helpful holidays for over 10 years now and always impressed with the service offered”

    Mrs Crawley, BRACKLEY, July 2018

    • “Fantastic location. The owners have thought of everything, I have never stayed in such a well equipped holiday cottage. The accommodation is even better than the photos. The farm is easily accessible off the A381, perfect for exploring the gorgeous south Devon beaches. Kingsbridge is close by for shopping if you happen to forget to pack anything. We would definitely love to revisit in the future. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.”

    Ms Brown, South Croydon, June 2018

    • “We really enjoyed our stay at Blackthorn Barn, amazing cottage with excellent facilities, spacious and comfortable. We all loved the play barn - children and adults! The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Good central location with lots of places to visit and things to do - beach, woodland walks, steam trains and boat trips.”
