    Mrs Pierssene

    “Great house- spacious, clean and well equipped.”


    All open plan so can be noisy with young children. Great pool table and TV room/snug. Well equipped kitchen, fridge could be bigger but manageble as there is a separate wine fridge. Bathrooms spacious and clean with powerful showers and 2 large baths. Lovely enclosed garden with rabbits and sheep in the adjacent field. Lots of places to visit within 40 minute drive. We went to Lydford Gorge, Haldon Forest, Babbacombe, Dawlish Warren beach. Pub in Sticklepath is a 5 minute drive away (not walkable with children as narrow lanes with no footpath). Great place for a family holiday. We would definitely recommend Rock Barn.
