Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fantastic holiday property and facilities
We have stayed at Rose Barn at Combrew Farm many times over the past decade or so, and each time have a wonderful time. It's such a huge family favourite for us and our extended family, hence why we keep coming back! The facilities at Combrew Farm are fabulous, the property is superbly equipped, clean and well maintained, and the owners are fantastic hosts. Would recommend.

Fantastic facilities
We recently stayed at Rosebarn cottage for a family birthday. The combined accommodation gave us plenty of space. Having two kitchens & lounges was really handy. The cottages were clean & the beds were comfortable. It was very nice having access to the pool. The kids really made the most of the games room as well as the badminton/tennis facilities. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rosebarn.

Rose Barn Cottage exceeded expectations!!
We stayed in Rose Barn Cottage from 20th-27th December 22, we were greeted by Sue on arrival who was very welcoming and more than happy to answer any questions we had. There was a bottle of processco, tin of quality streets and a box of fresh eggs left in the kitchen which was a lovely touch. The cottage was huge and absolutely gorgeous, decorated with lovely xmas decorations and xmas trees. The cottage was spotlessly clean and beds were very comfortable, it had everything that we would need for our stay, especially the kitchen which was fully equipped with utensils, pots, pans etc, it was discussed several times with people in our party how well equipped the kitchen was, there was no expense spared here. We have stayed in many self catering accommodations and Combrew Farm is the top of our list! Sue offers bike hire which we took advantage of, bikes are lovely and suitable for all ages, great prices too. The swimming pool was probably the highlight of our holiday for the children, I think we used it 6 days out of our 7 (including Xmas day!) it was again spotlessly clean and so warm, was like getting into a bath! Has everything you need, changing rooms, toilets, shower and a sauna. Games room also an added bonus for the children and adults! Great fun had in there. The children also loved the play park and the range of trampolines were great. Sue is always around and happy to help with any queries that you may have. Lovely walks for dogs on the doorstep and plenty of supermarkets and shops close by as well as nice takeaways and restaurants if you don’t want to cook every night. Honestly cannot fault Combrew Farm at all and when I say no expense spared here I mean there has been no expense spared!! Kids didn’t want to leave they had so much fun, already looked at other dates to return, cannot wait for our next stay here! Thanks Sue and John for a lovely Christmas!

Fantastic
Have stayed in many holiday properties with my family over the years, but this is the best one we’ve ever stayed in. It was spotlessly clean, with a tasteful interior. In fact the pictures on line don’t do it justice. We stayed in two cottages with interconnecting doors so could see what both cottages looked like, wasn’t disappointed. The kitchens were well equipped everything you needed was there. Kids playground was very good even had goats to pet. Swimming pool was clean and warm. Our hosts were very warming and nothing was too much trouble. Without a doubt We would definitely be going back

Really lovely property, well maintained, pet friendly with helpful owners
We had a fantastic stay at Rose Barn and the adjoining Owl Barn. The accommodation was well equipped and well maintained. It was homely yet spacious. The games room was a huge hit with all the children (ages 7-20) The indoor swimming pool was clean and warm. The owners John and Sue were very welcoming and helpful. The beaches are about 30 minutes drive away but worth the trip.Supermarkets and take away -fish and chips and Chinese restaurants within a 5 minute drive of the property. There are some really nice restaurants in Instow which are fairly close too. We loved staying here and would like to go back again.

Memorable Family Holiday
Thankyou for a really lovely and relaxing stay. Excellent standard of accommodation, very clean and spacious. Property is lovingly and well maintained. A peaceful location. Hosts helpful and friendly . Beautiful garden, stocked with colourful home grown flowers. Play area clean, safe and packed with a great array of trampolines. A chance to spend time relaxing with the family in a well equipped cottage, big enough to give everyone their own space if needed. Crisp white bed linen and an extremely good selection of very comfortable beds. Modern bathrooms with a mixture of showers and baths. Games room has a pool table, air hockey, darts and ping pong. There is indoor badminton court and outdoor tennis court. And our absolute favourite was the indoor pool and sauna, again very clean and maintained to a high standard. One of our best family holidays, would very much recommend. One of the few places that is accurately described on the website and is even better than the photos.

Perfect family holiday home away from home!,
What a wonderful time we had at Rose Barn. We were celebrating a special birthday and our ages ranged from 18 months to 81 years plus dogs. It had everything we needed from the best equipped kitchen of any holiday cottage I have ever been in, to the pool and other facilities which kept us all busy while the weather was poor. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable beds. The main kitchen has a massive table that we all gathered round for dinner and to play games. We did get out and about between the rain to Woolacombe and Ilfracombe both lovely towns but especially loved Instow, a nice beach and lovely cafes and bars only about 10 minutes drive away. There is also Fremington Quay over the main road from the barn to walk the dogs and a lovely cafe. The Barn Inn in Bickington in walking distance has lovely food. Don’t be put off from the look of it, we really enjoyed it and staff and locals were very friendly. Also Han Court Chinese takeaway was gorgeous and they deliver to the house. All in all I can not recommend this place enough. Will definitely be visiting again, even maybe one of the smaller cottages in the complex and will highly recommend to friends. The owners Sue and John were very helpful with questions before we arrived and whilst we were there. They responded very promptly to any messages I sent. Thank you for a wonderful week.
