“Fab-u-lous week ”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed in Rosebarn for a week with our extended family and had a great time. We were spoilt because we had all of the facilities (indoor pool, gym & games room) to ourselves. The pool was so warm that it was like being in the bath. Loved the fact that the 12 of us could all sit round the huge table in Barn Cottage but because we had both cottages we had an adult lounge and a gaming one! The added bonus was the beautiful weather and close proximity to the Tarka Trail.

We booked this accommodation for our girls weekend. 12 of us arrived to rose cottage and barn owl which are joined together via the lounge. It was absolutely perfect, had a lovely kitchen with all the crockery, cutlery, glasses and cool stuff that you'd need. The bedrooms were all very comfy with more than enough storage. Good bathrooms and just all round excellent accommodation. The swimming pool area was great, we spent a lot of time in there too. We actually didn't leave the whole weekend so can't tell you anything about the surrounding area but We will definitely be going back again. The owner was really helpful and was so lovely to meet her, nothing was too much trouble. Brilliant weekend all round

“Great way to relax”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Nicely placed and nicely paced holiday.
Close to great beaches just short drive away.
Ideal for Tarka trail etc.
Was worried the pool might get busy.
We used it every day and had it to ourselves.
My kids in their 20s but still loved the goats and chickens.

“Great 70th Birthday Celebration Week!”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We rented Rose Barn Cottage for a week's family get together to mark a significant Birthday! There were 4 couples, 5 grandchildren and 2 dogs! The facilities are just excellent, with modern kitchens and bathrooms and great lounges. The on site extras include a modern indoor swimming pool, sauna, table tennis room, indoor badminton court, outdoor tennis court and a children's play area, with trampolines, swings and slide, plus a small animal corner with goats and rabbits. This is an excellent venue for all ages, coping with all weathers.

We were fortunate that the weather was generally good and we visited beaches at Saunton and Woolacombe. Some also visited Ilfracombe, Lynmouth and Rosemoor Gardens(RHS).

A really good week, in accommodation that has got it just right!

“excellent accommodation and facilities, perfect for our large family gathering”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

All went very smoothly with booking and arrival. Being able to park outside the front door was a bonus and Sue gave us a lovely welcome and was happy to leave us to do our own thing.

The activities suited our group of adults and older teens, including an athlete who needed the gym. Others took the opportunity play lots of badminton, trampolining and use the pool. Table tennis and air hockey were less popular due to the excellent weather. We even took the opportunity to hire bikes from on site and half the price of bike hire centres near by.

The accommodation itself was of a very high standard with a good mix of rooms for our various couples, brothers, and singles! The mix of bathrooms and layouts was interesting but not a problem. The kitchen and dining areas were extensive and well equipped. Having a dining table that could fit us and visitors (13) was an added bonus. All bed linen and towels were spotless and the beds were very comfortable.

The outside area incorporated a beautiful lawn and flower beds which proved to be a popular place for evening drinks, although we didn't make use of the BBQ.

Thanks Sue for a great site and facilities.

“Relaxing Family get together”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

2 cottages rented for a family get together in a peaceful location by the sea, very relaxing stay with plenty of facilities to keep one occupied on site, good shopping at Barnstable and close to may other resorts for day trips. Very friendly and helpful owners made the stay that much more special.
