“Amazing weekend away!”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A group of 17 of us travelled to the Leisure Barn for our friend's Stag Do. I had booked it not knowing quite what to expect and the place blew everyone away!

Derek and his wife Angie are both lovely people and gave us a good tour of the place on arrival. The space itself is absolutely massive and all of the facilities are excellent. The sleeping pods were nice and warm even in Feb and the kitchen and dining facilities had everything we needed for cooking big group meals.

We had two party nights on Friday and Saturday, the surround sound filled the barn with music and we had videos playing on the projector screen. The astro turf area was brilliant and we had plenty of games of ultimate frisby and football and rode around like giant kids on the massive selection of bikes!

Overall it ticked all the boxes and I would strongly recommend anyone to come to Lane Barton for a weekend like no other!

Thanks again Derek and Angie!!

“The best cow shed by a mile..”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in April 2016

When we arrived at the barn I wasn't sure what to expect. Derek came out and met the group (12 lads aged 20 - 25) and ran through all the features of the barn. His general attitude and demeanour was welcoming and friendly, and was happy to advise us on noise level restraints and general do's and don't questions. To summarise. You couldn't make enough noise to bother anyone even if you wanted to.

We had a few days of intense table tennis, walking, drinking and playing with parties in the evenings, and genuinely loved every minute. The pods were well heated, but the actual barn did get cold at night so make sure you pack thermals if it's not the summer. If you're thinking that this might suit your group holiday for a week, I can attest to every other review on here that YES IT WILL. Thoroughly reccomend it to anyone!

Looking forward to coming again next year!

“IT'S MASSIVE !!”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

17 of us stayed over the August bank holiday and there was still room for more !!
Kitchen is fully equipped with double ovens, microwave, dishwasher ( take tablets just in case ) all your pots & pans that you will ever need.
Like my title says and one of our party said ' IT'S MASSIVE ' inside ,space for football, tennis , volleyball, bikes , table tennis ,pool and most of that was going on at same time.
The big screen and sound system turned the barn from party night one night to cinema night another.
Derek was very very helpful making sure that we had the best time that we could have had.
Age range in party 4-42 and all loved it so much that we will be booking up again.

“Perfect Glamping experience 😊”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just spent August bank holiday at lane Barton. Our large group of friends go glamping on a yearly basis, we were really struggling to find anywhere that accommodated all 17 of us and that had no problems with the noise levels!!
The converted cow shed was absolutely perfect for us. Nothing was too much trouble for Derek. Looking forward to booking up again soon!!

“Great place for groups”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Little late with the review... But a group of 12 of us stayed in the barn for a weekend in May. We are aged 18-25 and just wanted a group holiday. This place was perfect for our partying habits! The pods made great places to get our heads down and all the extras such as the surround sound were very good! On the first night we all got a taxi to Barnstaple to go out and when we got back we carried on the party in the barn! There is lots of room to do this. The facilities for preparing food and drinks are also excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Derek was also very kind and friendly! We hope to come back some time soon :)

“All we could ask for”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Derek's place has everything we needed for a group to have fun - and Derek is a great smiley bloke. Comfy beds, hot showers and a shared area with loads of fun. Bideford and Barnstaple not too far as a group, so really explored North Devon with the Barn as a base.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend - and I do!

Just working out the next excuse to go there :)
