Threshing Barn


The Ellis Family (3 generations including 2 children and a baby)

"Martin and Kim made us feel very welcome and at home in their lovely barn. The welcome hamper was a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are sad to leave but have made good memories. We wanted a relaxing break with the baby arriving with comfort and Threshing Barn got A*. Lovely and clean on arrival with an excellently equipped kitchen, the garden area is very secure for the children to play and you are in a superb location, close and central to explore. Babbacombe at night, Simply Fish in Brixham, and great beaches to name but a few. Threshing Barn was well worth the money. Thank you!"

Sweet Rose


Sandy and Phil with ‘Daisy’ and ‘Bailey’

"Superb holiday accommodation. Dogs loved their treats and we enjoyed the biscuits and bubbles – a lovely touch. Sweet Rose was an ideal base for discovering the area with the information folders the best we’ve come across. With The Thatched Tavern and Drum Inn good for food. Thank you for being so lovely and accommodating this week. We will certainly return".

'We were looking for accommodation that was both relaxing and near Torquay as we were attending a wedding 300 miles from home! Honeysuckle ticked all the boxes. Future guests should definitely go for lunch at the Thatched Tavern as it is lovely for a pub lunch. We also enjoyed going up to Babbacombe; the views are beautiful and Hanburys fish & chips topped it off! We will always remember the comfort of Honeysuckle which allowed us to enjoy a relaxing family holiday. Thank you for providing us with everything we needed for a stay with a baby – especially at no extra cost. We would definitely return!'
