Brilliant place, beautiful location. Clean accommodation, the hamper and carrot cake were brilliant touches. Very homely and recommend to anyone visiting the area.

We have all had a fantastic break in your lovely barn. The welcome hamper and lemon cake were greatly appreciated after an exceptionally long and difficult journey down the M5.
The accommodation suited us perfectly - clean, comfortable, warm and spacious. Everything we needed was amply provided and the Christmas decorations were lovely. We enjoyed lovely walks, especially around Castle Drago and fantastic meals at the Old Malt Scoop, Lapford. A truly restful break in beautiful surroundings. Thank you.

A very Merry Christmas was had at Long Meadow Barn. The location was perfect for us, as not too far from family, yet set in beautiful countryside. The cottage was very clean and decorated with a Christmas tree. The welcome hamper was so thoughtful and set us up for our stay. Being welcomed and warmly invited to a local Carol Service made staying here a lovely experience. I'm sure this will not be our first!

Immaculate cottage - gorgeous hamper on arrival. My two sons are now addicted to scones and jam! Highly recommend the 'Indian Lounge' in Crediton who will deliver to the cottage. Paignton Zoo, Go Karting at Eval, Quad biking at Barnstaple and Dingles Heritage Centre a must.

Arrived totally stressed and left the exact opposite! This "cottage" is one of the best we have ever visited, in terms of welcome, equipment, cleanliness and location. We have enjoyed every moment, albeit helped by wonderful weather! Thanks Tessa for your wonderful welcome and the loan of the shaver adaptor, thus preventing Wurzel Gummidge from leaving!!

Many many thanks Colin & Tessa for a wonderful stay. Nothing was too much trouble for you at all - and a wonderful welcome basket. Croyde was our favourite beach - if National Trust members, use the free parking at the far end by Ocean Pitch - great cafe also. Dartmoor Prison a good trip along with Castle Drogo. Thanks once again, one of the best cottages we have stayed at! All the very best.

The Wheatley Family
6 July 2014
Wonderful holiday and fabulous welcome pack! We'd recommend various good places to eat - Westward Ho's "the blue and green" on the seafront and Salcombes "Dick and Wills" as well as the Michelin starred "Masons Arms" at Knowstone - though expensive. We'd recommend 2 surf schools we used - Westward Ho's North Devon Surf School and Bude Surfing Experience. Tessa and Colin thank you making us so welcome, we've enjoyed our stay.
