The conversion of this barn into Primrose Cottage is wonderful! A private road up to the cottage. Everything nicely prepared and cleaned in these covid times. A lovely kitchen, dining room and living room downstairs with 2 bedrooms upstairs with bathroom. The master bedroom is superb with lovely views across the valley and regularly seeing rabbits eating the grass outside. In the field next door Mackenzie and Bally the family pigs make for lovely neighbours. We had a lovely peaceful stay. The WiFi works brilliantly.

A delightful, hidden corner of mid Devon, with loads of space in the fields around the cottage to roam in.. The cottage is very comfortably equipped and tastefully decorated. Thoughtfully safe in terms of coronavirus precautions. Recommended.

Lovely location.. Spacious rooms. Comfortable furniture. Wi-fit bit hit and miss. Very bright in main bedroom. Loved the pigs and horses

Primrose cottage was just as others have said.. It is in a lovely position for visiting all the coast and the Eden project. It rained every day we were there by that did not stop us from getting out. The dishwasher and washing machine were a bonus and the cooker was huge. The clothes airer was nice and big. The tv worked well the beds and the sofas were all very comfortable. We had a slight hiccup on arrival which was dealt with by Brenda the owner personally . What more could you want? Absolutely nothing. Loved it.

This is our second visit and it lived up to the pleasures of the first - lovely premises, peaceful location and beautiful scenery - well situated between the Moors and the north Devon coast..

.... The cottage itself and the general setting were outstanding however as seasoned travelers there were a few points that we identified with the cottage: 1) No wardrobes or hanging rails for clothing which was most inconvenient as we had ironed all our clothing prior to arrival but had no where to hang them
Mr Carey, July 2019

The main bedroom has 2 large picture windows with no curtains or blinds, so as soon as it's light we were awoken by the extreme brightness.. I'm guessing that these windows are a feature of the property, but this isn't stated on the property details & we ended up going to bed early so we could get enough sleep. There is nowhere to sit to apply make up for the ladies. A chest of drawers with a small mirror & no chair. But apart from that , this is a delightful property in a superb position.

Monday 6th January 2020 We have recently returned from our 2nd Christmas staying at Primrose cottage.. The cottage is set in a lovely quiet and tranquil location where you can spot deer up on the hills. The owners of the cottage are lovely and very accommodating they aren’t intrusive at all but there if you need anything. The cottage itself is well equipped . The kitchen has everything you need to cook a christmas lunch as we have done so twice now. The wood burner makes the cottage very cosy on then winter nights. There is plenty of wood and kindle to keep you going. We were welcomed on both occasions with a decorated christmas tree bottle of wine,fresh milk in the fridge and a treat for the children that got us in the mood for our christmas break. On both breaks we had a asda home delivery delivered straight to the cottage that worked really well. The cottage is clean and tidy and everything you could wish for a winter getaway. Our children enjoyed feeding the 2 pet pigs. We would highly recommend primrose cottage for a place to stay. The White Family

This cottage is in a great location and we will be back.. It has been well presented and it was just what we thought it would be. We have rented cottages all over the UK and by far this has been the best. We highly recommend this superb cottage.

We recently spent a lovely week at Primrose Cottage.. The place was very clean, well equipped and had lots of character. We enjoyed a relaxing break as the accommodation was in a very quiet rural location with nice walks and fantastic scenery nearby. The owner was friendly and very helpful, helping with bikes and fishing for trout in the nearby river where kingfishers were frequently seen. We’ve no hesitation in recommending Primrose Cottage as a great place to stay.

We have just spent a week part of which we were snowed in for 2 days and have thoroughly enjoyed the rest. The cottage is well provided for with all modern appliances and wifi. The lounge has a nice log burner which the owner proved more than enough logs to keep it burning all day long if required. A great cottage and one we hope to return to in the future. Lovery owners who were on hand if required but not intrusive to your privacy. A great location with easy access to some nice parts of Devon.

A lovely get away from it all, peaceful place in the middle of lovely countryside but with the convenience of village amenities (store, bakery and very good tandoori takeaway!) etc only a couple of minutes drive away. The cottage was provided with everything you need for a true home from home. The owners were friendly, helpful and on hand whenever we needed them but were never intrusive.

Had a warm and personalised welcome by the owners, they are very helpful and give excellent advice on places to visit and where to dine. In an exclusive setting, very calm. The cottage is modernly furbished, restored with great care with a lot of room for children to play. Huge comfortable bed. We had exactly the new year's holiday we wanted.

We stayed for 9 days over Christmas and had the best time ever. The owners are amazing, without being intrusive. The property itself was the best we ever stayed, an excellent blend of contemporary living with traditional features. Lots of interesting places to visit only a short drive away and great walks right on the doorstep. We will be booking this property again for the summer. Thank you to the owners for going above and beyond to make us feel so welcome and have such a memorable stay.
