Overview

Crediton Barn Rental Photos and Description

Two large 5 bedroom holiday cottages on the farm, in the rural Heart of Devon

Situated close on the edge of the small hamlet of Poughill, in the heart of the tourist-free Mid-Devon countryside, the Barton is a small family run farm. Our land is grazed by a small herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle and a few sheep and chickens. Produce from the farm is usually available, including home reared beef and lamb, eggs, apple juice and cider from our orchards and seasonal fruit and vegetables.

We offer a choice of two spacious cottages, The Barton Granary and Brimbles, both converted from Grade II Listed barns, are comfortably furnished and well-equipped.

We are able to offer the added attraction of a small indoor heated swimming pool which is available all year round, together with a small enclosed children's play area.

In The Carriage House, we have a wellie bank (in case you forget yours and wish to explore the farm) outdoor and beach toys and games, a DVD library and selection of guide books and maps to borrow.

We can offer short breaks outside of peak periods, and also a discount if your party is smaller than 6.

**Please note that regrettably we are unable to accept pets with the exception of assistance dogs**

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Cottage - what a wonderful time we had. The cottage is so well equipped with everything for children & adults. The swimming pool was a great hit on the rainy days and a real treat to be able to just walk from the kitchen! The children loved the playroom, toys and videos - they were very energetic running around and slept well.

Great part of the country

Christmas at Brimbles!

  • 4 of 5
I booked Brimbles for 6 adults and 3 children to celebrate our family Christmas. My husband, son and I had the furthest to travel and arrived after the arrival time, but Anne gave the rest of our party a warm welcome in my absence and ran through property information. We received some lovely extras - including a Christmas tree and decorations and scrummy mince pies which was a nice touch. We had ordered some meat from the farm and it was all waiting in the fridge for us as requested (and was delicious!).

The setting and the property itself are fantastic - the kitchen/diner and lounge areas are perfect for large parties to congregate and the bedrooms and generous amount of bathrooms were great.

Now to the pool! Needless to say we went in pretty much every day, often more than once! It is a good size and heated with a generous changing area. It is attached directly to Brimbles from the kitchen which is an advantage, particularly in winter!

It was wonderful to spend time in this beautiful rural area, especially as my husband, son and I live in London. You really are away from it all here as mobile signal and Wi-Fi were pretty much non-existent. A refreshing change!! It is part of a working farm, and so we saw sheep, cows and chickens on our daily travels. The weather was not good enough to spend much time outside but I imagine it would be great to get a taste of farm life in the summer.

I would definitely recommend Brimbles to anyone looking to rent a large property and I hope we can return some day. Thanks again to Anne and Phil for letting us share part of their home.

Owner's Response: We were so glad that you enjoyed your Christmas break at Brimbles. We thoroughly enjoyed having you to stay and I hope we are able to welcome you back some time in the future, when the weather is more clement!

Just to note, whilst the slow broadband service did not affect your stay, I would like to point out that our Wi-fi is totally dependent on the BT service that we receive. Sadly, despite the up to date routers/hardware that we provide, we are destined to never receive high speed broadband as our telephone and internet service is delivered by overhead copper cable. I hope that one day we have a politician or employee of BT Openworld stay at our cottages, maybe then our difficulties will be addressed!!

Fabulous relaxing break

  • 5 of 5
We have returned to Brimbles once more and once more it does not disappoint. Anne and Phil take great care to ensure that the cottages are equipped with everything you could possibly need. We made full use of the pool - perfect for our children, the shallow end shallow enough for the little ones to stand in, but deep enough to swim in. All the energy expended in the pool ensured that they slept well! The feeling of space in Brimbles is amazing - always possible to find a quiet corner to read a book, this is no cramped cottage. As ever the kitchen was the hub of our stay - large enough for the children to run around in whilst we pottered about cooking, and there was plenty of space for the 9 of us each day to eat together around the table.
The farm shop just outside Cheriton Fitzpaine is well worth a visit - excellent butchery and choice of veg, as is the cheese shop in Crediton.
A very relaxing week was had by all - we will be back!

Perfect Holiday for groups of Friends/ Families

  • 5 of 5
After visiting and staying at Brimbles quite a few times now, I can not recommend this high enough. The accommodation is very well equipped and extremely clean and spacious. Even on those wet days you can find a corner in the house if you want to be away from the crowd. Anne and Phil are wonderful hosts and if you want to stay in for a celebratory meal Anne will even cook for you by prior arrangement and let me tell you she is an exceptional cook! The local scenery is stunning and you are within easy reach of either coast about 40 mins. The pool is an added bonus and is accessed two doors that are locked by pin number so no need to worry about young ones getting in un-accompanied. There are walks around the farm which are very picturesque, and you can even help out at feeding times by just asking. Go and have a wonderful time.
