Orchard Barn

This was a convenient base for our one week stay near Honiton visiting family in the area. There was a good welcome pack of bread, fresh milk and butter on our arrival and the house was nicely clean and well equipped. We had a two year old toddler with us and the upstairs playroom/sitting room was very useful to spend time in with him, but it was not particularly comfortable to sit in otherwise. He also enjoyed looking at the tractors in the outbuildings and there were some cows for him to see in a nearby field. There isn't a garden that can be used but it was fine at his age just to take him for a walk in the yard and nearby orchard. Unfortunately there were some very noisy building works being carried out right outside the house quite a lot of the time except for when it was raining, and this did detract somewhat from our enjoyment of our stay there. Presumably it is only a temporary state of affairs but it would probably be worth checking up on that before booking.

3/5

Good base for exploring Somerset, Devon and Dorset.

The position of the property, away from the centre of Honiton but close to the A30 and the A35, was excellent for travelling to attractions in Somerset, Devon and Dorset. We were able to have days out at Lyme Regis and Exmouth, as well as going further afield to Minehead, without it being too long a day. We appreciated the welcome tea tray with bread, butter, jam and milk, and the pretty flowers in the rooms. The accommodation was well-heated, the beds were very comfortable. Lots of information leaflets are provided, and many fabulous books to dip into in a quiet moment, and some games for younger children. However, there was little in the way of entertainment for older children and adults. There are two televisions, and the top room is a fabulous place for a TV room, but the sofa beds weren't comfortable when used as sofas. The dining table is good and large, though, and we'd brought plenty of our own board games and card games. Located in the midst of farmland, it was quiet, despite also being the location for a number of business premises. There was a short but steep walk up to the triangulation point at Dumpdon Hill (National Trust), but other than that we were very disappointed that there were no walking routes in the '200 acres of parkland', as in reality this comprised fenced-off fields of cows. The property has free run of the orchard, about 100 steps from the front door across a sloping cobbled yard rather than a small private garden or patio. However, the fabulous view of the owners' flower garden from the kitchen window was very pleasant.

5/5 Excellent

Great for peaceful stay!

Great Stay at a lovely located property. Set in a quiet location, we found this to be a great choice for our family to explore the region. We arrived to find a well equipped property with everything we need. The log burner in the open kitchen diner was a great feature and meant we didn't really stray upstairs (and lit it , even though it wasn't cold!) Greg and Fiona were on hand offering advice on things to do and see, which was a big help. Would highly recommend!
