“The prettiest place in the world!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in September 2012

My husband and I have stayed at Mill Barn in Lustleigh four times so far and we plan to go back as soon as possible! It is such a lovely, peaceful and pretty place to stay! The perfect place for a romantic getaway and situated in the middle of beautiful Dartmoor, it has so many things to offer!
The owners are very helpful and superfriendly and do everything to make our stay perfect every time. Mill Barn is very comfortable, cosy and clean and a perfect basis for whatever you want to do when you explore Dartmoor and the Devon coast.
I can't recommend this place high enough. It's completely stolen our hearts.

Hey Corinne & Wilhelm,

Thank you for your review. Lustleigh might seem like a bit if a come down after your sabbatical in Australia. Come back soon as the local economy (the pub and the farm shop!!!) need your support!

We look forward to welcoming you soon. Roddy misses you!

Cheers,

Ben & Liz

“'Perfectly Peaceful'”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We have stayed at Mill Barn on six seperate occasions and at different times of the year. We have never been disappointed. The owners could not have made us feel more welcome (so much so we just keep coming back) They are always keen to check in and make sure we are enjoying our stay. For our past couple of visits we have taken our 18 month old and the barn has been perfectly comfortable for a small family. We simple took a stair gate with us and that was all we needed to get by. The views from the barn are perfect and what you would hope for from an idealic Devon village, Lustleigh is divine. We plan again soon. Thank you Ben and Liz for letting us use you're beautiful barn.

Hi Tash & Neil,

Thank you so much for your review.

Lustleigh misses your presence and the pub quiz is lost without your sporadic winning and wooden spooning appearances.

We hope to see you again soon.

Take care,

Ben & Liz

“Perfect getaway in a stunning location”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Great little cottage! Mill Barn is small but ideal for a one week getaway.

Lustleigh is a gorgeous village, just what we expected from our trip to Devon. The access is narrow but I think that's part of the charm! We really enjoyed sitting outside with a cup of tea in the morning wathcing the sun climb over the vally and seeing all the birds.

The owners made us very welcome and had lots of ideas for walks and days out.

“Plan to return!”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I stayed for a long weekend at Mill Barn with by husband for a break away from the City. Whilst well located to travel around Devon, you do feel like you've really, 'got away from it all' to a beautiful and tranquil place. The barn itself we found to be very cosy with all the amenities you'd expect. The owners especially were very helpful and made us feel extremely welcome. It was apparent from their visitors book that guests frequently returned, as we fully intend to do early next year.

“Ideal honeymoon getaway”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in March 2013

person found this review helpful

Mill Barn is a clean, tidy and well equipped self catering barn for two people.
It is an ideal location and accommodation for a romantic countryside getaway with nearby cities (Exeter, Plymouth) to explore.
The barn is well presented with everything you'd need including towels, bedding and kitchen utensils, all clean and tidy and a small dining area.
The owners are extremely welcoming and friendly and more than happy to give directions to the local farm shop where you can stock up for your week's supplies.
We particularly enjoyed the wood burning stove of an evening while we sat on the sofa and planned our next day from the copious suggestions in the information box.
Would recommend the barn and location to people looking for a couples/small family/pet friendly holiday.
