Only a mile from the beautiful, totally unspoilt Lannacombe beach and tucked down winding lanes in a peaceful Devon valley, Oak End Barn is a superb spacious family holiday property, in the middle of a terrace of three handsome barns which have been converted to a very high standard. Set in the tiny hamlet of South Allington, a short drive to Beesands and South Pool, the property is very spacious, light and bright with many interesting features and superb quality bespoke oak furniture and fittings. Gleaming tiles and polished wood floors with attractive rugs create a welcoming atmosphere, a treat to return to after an energetic day walking the coastal path (1 mile), or making sand castles and enjoying the rock pools at Lannacombe!

Spacious lounge with beautiful oak beams, two sofas, armchair, flat screen TV and DVD, feature fireplace (not operative) and French doors to the terrace and garden.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Oak End Barn in Sourh Allington. The cottage is really lovely and well kept by the owners. With 3 adults and 2 children we had plenty of space. The main bedroom is stunning with oak beams and lovely amount of space. The owners were very friendly and helpful and make us feel very welcome. Fresh eggs were provided from their farm and we even got to see some chicks. We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family. However we would warn them there is no or very limited mobile phone service and no WiFi, plus it’s fairly odd the beaten track and so you are very reliant on having a car. The area itself is very beautiful and is well placed to visit many of the lovely Devon attractions. Thank you for a really lovely holiday ????
Had a great stay, very spacious property, plenty of room for four adults and two children, in a beautiful, quiet location. Thankyou for letting dogs stay too. For some reason the DVD player rejected some of our dvds, others were fine. The beds were comfortable with nice fresh linen. Lovely rugs scattered about. The kitchen was well equipped with a very efficient dishwasher. A great property.
We really enjoyed our stay at Oakend Barn. The cottage was really lovely and clean and very spacious, with a nice patio and garden. All of the rooms were a good size and there was plenty of space for our party of 6, plus a tot. The beds were very comfortable. The village was quite remote, with very little through traffic, so it was very peaceful and very quiet. The owners of the cottage were really lovely, very friendly and very helpful (especially when we needed paramedics one evening). Kingsbridge (probably the nearest place for shops and supermarkets), is about 6 miles away, as it Slapton Sands beach. I would recommend the cottage, especially if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle for a week or two.
We had a lovely week at Oak End Barn - and the weather was pretty perfect which makes such a difference. The property accommodated us all very well - it felt spacious and light and was lovely and warm in the evenings. We would definitely like to return to this property.
The Barn conversion was great and the owners who live nearby friendly and most helpful. Their eggs are delicious. Roads very narrow nearby and for some miles either way, it added time to getting to other arrears of South Devon.
The Owner was exceptional as we always dread meeting them in case we are doing something wrong. Kenny was amazing, one in a million, made us so welcome. Would always go back to his lovely property.
We had a super stay. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The barn was fitted out with high quality furniture and equipment and was immaculately clean.
We really enjoyed our stay at Oak End Barn and found it very comfortable and the area great. The owner was very helpful and kind to our 3 year old. The approaches are very narrow. We would love to go back again some time.
