Originally converted from a livestock barn in the 1940’s into a boat builder’s dwelling and workshop, “The Barn” has now been transformed into this splendid detached family holiday home, only minutes from the sea at Hope Cove, finished to a high specification providing comfortable and luxurious accommodation in this superb South Devon holiday destination. With a huge outside terrace to enjoy the sunshine and boasting opulence in abundance, the owner’s impeccable taste is reflected throughout from the bespoke kitchen with polished granite worktops to the fittings, pictures and gorgeous furniture adorning every room.

Situated in the tiny countryside hamlet of Galmpton, it is less than a mile to the sandy beaches of  Hope Cove with its great family friendly eating pub and village store selling wonderful pasties and ice creams plus tea shops where you can indulge in glorious cream teas. All in all a great location from which to explore Hope Cove, the coast and the South Hams at its best. A warm welcome with a hamper of local produce awaits you.

The location was wonderful, and we really appreciated the fresh flowers and chocolates that greeted us on arrival - a lovely thought. The ratings of 'good' rather than 'excellent' are based on the following: - the interior of the fitted wardrobes had not been cleaned (cobwebs and a pair of child's underpants) - it wasn't possible to open the right hand oven door because of the way the cooker had been fitted, leaving us with insufficient oven space for cooking. The dishwasher was small for a property sleeping 8, and the door needed adjusting as it didn't open or close easily - the beds were most uncomfortable (apart from the small double) and we had to revert to the sofa bed - we had no mobile phone service at the barn and the landline wasn't working on our penultimate day when we attempted to make a call. When the owner called us at the beginning of our stay to check that we were OK, the line was very poor. No mobile plus no working landline is a concern. These comments are intended to be helpful rather than critical. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but the points we've raised may prevent us from returning, especially with a larger party.

A fantastic property in a great location. All the comforts of home and well equipped for dining in. Would definitely recommend and look to stay again. Minor points but the water is not fully clearing down the plug hole in the downstairs shower and a few cobwebs /dust to be found in the bedrooms. Chocolates, flowers and a bottle of prosecco were awaiting us on arrival - a lovely welcome. Loved the comfort of underfloor heating. Thank you Kind regards Carol Wilcock and party

Wonderful holiday. Both the owners and the staff at Toad Hall went beyond their duties to work with our requirements and last minute changes to arrival dates. Gorgeous barn at hope cove. I would definitely put emphasis on website that it is brilliant for young children, safe and open plan which worked so well for us with 4 young kids.

We had a great holiday and really really enjoyed our stay at the barn.

The Barn was a lovely property and all the facilities were very good my only concern is that the shower cubicles were very smooth shower trays and could be lethal when showering with soaps and shampoos, would suggest a rubber mat in shower trays for safety for elderly or children and there was no shelf in shower room whilst showering that would be useful and shelves for Toiletries , just a few niggles but the standard is very high and we enjoyed are stay. The owner was very accommodating . The location was lovely with nice beaches nearby.

The Barn was a lovely place to stay. spacious, clean, stylish and private. The owners were very helpful and nothing was to much trouble. I have no problem in recommending The Barn.
