“Cosy, private cabin with fabulous views in a beautiful area of Devon”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We spent 5 lovely days in the Swallows cabin in April. Liz and Gordon were welcoming and provided some essentials and flowers on our arrival. Our dog was made welcome. The cabin, which is well equipped and cosy, has a large field for private use from which extensive views can be enjoyed. At night the stars were amazing. The country smells were wonderful. We enjoyed coastal and cross country walks especially enjoying the spring flowers in the lanes and the beautiful river walk to Colyton which is a very attractive town. The farm is very pretty and there is a good games room, a tennis court and a pool which is open from May. The beautiful seaside villages of Branscome and Beer are close by.

Barritshayes is possibly one of the loveliest places we have ever visited. We have stayed in one of the self catering barn conversions and also the B&B. The accommodation is excellent. It is immaculate. yet comfortable and cosy. Both Liz and Gordon are fantastic hosts, they are incredibly accommodating and friendly. The facilities they offer are tremendous, the pool is simply gorgeous, our 2 children spent most of the days we spent there swimming and having such fun. As for the tennis court and games room, Barritshayes has just about everything to keep young and old alike entertained. The breakfast was delicious!! We are looking forward to our next stay.

This delightful farmstay has everything we needed to unwind after a hectic time. Liz and Gordon are classic hosts, warm, respectful and obliging. Our B&B bedroom was large and comfortable, looking out over green meadows. There are also units, some in the old stables, which are very appealing for self catering for a longer stay.

Close by we visited Pecorama, a train-garden with it's own miniature railway to take us around the delightful garden. It also has model railways in glass cases, based on actual places in several countries.

Beer is a beach town with the chalk cliffs of the South Devon Jurassic coast. It was a warm sunny day and we enjoyed lunch in the pub garden overlooking the wide beach. Nearby is a Roman quarry, showing the underground excavations of limestone for significant buildings through the ages.

Wonderful

Sixteen artists from Broadstone Dorset arrived and filled all the beds....everyone was happy, using the pool and studio. Every thing was cosy, and the breakfast delicious, we were able to paint on site, as the scenery was magnificent.. Liz was kind enough to judge our work at the end,which made the four day break such fun. We will be back!

Fantastic hospitality and great attentive attitude, we'd definitely like to stay again!
The 'swallows cabin, is so cute and cosy, amazing location, friendly animals and absolutely stunning views!
The cabin was extremely tidy, equipped with modern appliances, super warm, fab modern rooms and just extremely isolated - it felt like our own little hideout.
Liz and Gordon were kind enough to provide basic food necessities and also gave great advice with local information. Great friendly atmosphere and affordable, definitely be staying again.
