“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had an excellent week at this cottage. The facilities were amazing and the owners were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We arrived to a welcome pack of tea, milk, biscuits and free range eggs which were all very welcome. My mother has mobility problems but she managed very well in the cottage. The swimming pool, spa etc were brilliant. We will definitely be returning. Sue and John plus son were all ready to recommend local places we might like to visit. Brilliant in every way.

“Fantastic place in wonderful environment”
Reviewed 10 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We found this lovely place by coincident on Tripadvios due to its special character and quickly decided to book even still having had doubts if it is suitable for our 3 very small children. It was more than suitable for them as well as for us adults! Richard and Becks with their hospitality, their warm welcome with a great cake waiting inside, the very charismatic cottage with its fabulous interior, the wonderful Dartmoor, Ponies looking into directly the cottage from the backyard - just perfect. We can recommend this place for everybody who is looking for a charming, quite, a bit lonely but very centrally located place in the middle of the unique Dartmoor with many attraction in less than 45 min by car in all directions. We will definitively return to Richard and Becks' Oack Barn. Thank you; Pascal and Caroline

“Another Wonderful Holiday at Combrew Farm”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014
2
people found this review helpful

This is a beautiful cottage (the photos do not do it full justice). It is a cottage for 4 people but there are 5 of us (2 adults, 3 children) and this was a lovely size. We loved our four poster bed. This property has everything you could want for a nice comfortable holiday with added extras left by the owners of milk, shortbread, wine etc which are lovely touches. The swimming pool is beautiful (just like being at a spa) and the play areas and animals are lovely for the kids. It was really nice to eat out in our own little private courtyard too!! We stayed in Rose Cottage last year, Courtyard Cottage this year and have booked for next year already we love it - thank you very much!! - only a short drive from the beautiful sandy beaches of Devon too.
