We stayed at Aarons in early August 2016 for a week. There were two families in our party - 4 adults and 4 kids (all 10y or younger) - and Aarons fitted the bill perfectly. Tucked away in a secluded location (no traffic noise!), lovely views over the surrounding countryside, lots of space and light, and great facilities, this converted barn was a delight to stay in. Whilst the kids busied themselves with the ping-pong downstairs in the garage, playing hide and seek in the garden, or enjoying one of the many supplied games and toys, the adults could sit out on the generous high level patio sipping a cup of tea from a fine china mug and enjoying a slice of home made Victoria sponge. Aarons is ideally located for enjoying all Devon and Cornwall has to offer, being just a mile or 2 off the A30 and, whilst driving most places takes a while (unless it's on main roads), we enjoyed trips to Drogo Castle, Dawlish beach (highly recommended!), The Eden Project, Woolacoombe beach, Hey Tor and many others.
The house is upside down with 3 of the 4 bedrooms downstairs, and the kitchen and living space upstairs. This makes perfect sense as the light just pours in through the Velux ceiling windows. It's full of character with higgledy-piggledy wooden beams and a sloping roof, but it's been converted to a very high standard and feels most luxurious. The two main bedrooms are generous in size, with the two twins being more than adequate (one is smaller than the other). The beds! Oh my, the beds. These were quite the most comfortable any of us had slept on for some years. We all commented to each other how well we slept and even the kids mentioned them! All the rooms had blackout curtains so it was nice and dark at night time for the kids. The kitchen is a decent size and very well equipped with more than enough to cater for 8 people - there was even a juicer! It was also really pleasing to have a washing machine and dryer in the utility room downstairs which meant we could quickly wash the kids swimming costumes and towels after a day at the beach.
Our whole group were sad to leave Aarons at the end of the week and we all agreed it was one of the best houses we've been to from Rural Retreats. Our only grumble, and it is a small one, is that there's just one shower downstairs - there are 2 other bathrooms, but they have baths with shower attachments and aren't designed for use standing up. But it really didn't bother us.
This is a truly delightful property which comes highly recommended.
