    • “The property had just about everything you could ask for. The only thing we didnt have which would have been useful was a parasol for the patio area. It was very hot on the patio area and a parasol would have kept it and us much cooler. The location was lovely very secluded and quiet.”

    Mrs Burke, Rotherham, June 2018

    • “Rock barn was perfect, we were a group of 8 adults and 1 toddler and the house suited our needs perfectly, there were lots of books, games and dvds, the pool table and table tennis were a great addition. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and lovely to have the three en-suites, the kitchen was very well equipped and the garden and patio was a sun trap, perfect for enjoying a bbq! Also a great location for exploring Devon, we would highly recommend.”

    Miss Vickers, LEYLAND, June 2018

    • “Our 3rd holiday at Rock Barn was perfect .we are a family of 3 generation and just love it.Days out and evenings in playing games and eating and drinking we will be back.”

    Mrs Oldham, Banbury, June 2018

    • “We had reported the clothes airer was broken and no replacement was sent which is annoying as we had nowhere to hang washing, for such a large group this was difficult. Also the grass hasn’t been cut in some time this caused two problems, small stinging nettles which the 18 month old trod on and had bad sore stings on his foot and due to the length of the wild flowers in the grass it caused lots of bees which meant the older children were a little scared to be out in the garden at times as one of the adults had already been stung by a bee whilst walking around the garden, 2 problems that could have been avoided if the grass had been cut Lastly we all agreed the property size would have been better with a larger fridge”

    Mrs Wells, Dunmow, May 2018

    • “Rock Barn is a amazing house with the wow factor. We loved our stay there”

    Mrs Haskett, Gillingham, May 2018

    • “Fabulous place for our family holiday. Would highly recommend to others.”
