The Granary is very comfortable & well designed. The location has beautiful views of the countryside & you really are in the heart of the farm. The hot tub was areal bonus! We were staying so we could visit relatives, and there is plenty to do and see including the coast, nearby. Tiverton is a lovely country town with some lovely local shops, market and places to eat.
