Absolutely lovely cottage, beautifully kept and fitted out with everything you could need, even dog bowls and beds for our dog! Owners fantastically helpful and we felt at home straight away. Lots of unspoilt places to explore locally so would definitely like to return as our week just flew by. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Nice cottage great place to be to see Devon and Cornwall. Parking could be difficult would help if the front grassed area was reduced in size to enable you to turn your vehicle around, as you need to either reverse into cottage or reverse out due to lack of space. Cottage well equipped and very comfortable.

Having spent the past 10 years at many holiday cottages, our week at Highford Barn was one of the best.
