"Overall we thought the cottage was good for a party of our size, 4 adults, but would be a bit on the small size for any more. The kitchen was very small & only suitable for 1 person to use at a time. The lounge area with dining table was just adequate but we were constantly having to move the dining chairs around just to get past to the lounge area etc, which proved to be a bit annoying. With 2 more adults, or children, this would be even more difficult. The TV was positioned on a high room wide mantel shelf over the electric room heater. At this height it was difficult to view for anyone sitting on the sofas close to the end wall.The best part were the bedrooms, very large & comfortable & well furnished with very large built-in clothes storage/wardrobes. Bathrooms are small but adequate. The showers were just ok but the water pressure was erratic, running hot & cold as other bathrooms & the kitchen taps were being used.Externally the front enclosed garden area was very good, especially for us with our 3 dogs. Which was the main reason for choosing this cottage.However we did have a problem here on the first night as the lawn had been roughly mown but with the grass clippings left on the lawn. This very quickly became a problem as our dogs, & us, as we cleaned up after them, were walking the grass clippings into the lounge which meant we were constantly having to sweep them up to try to prevent them being walked upstairs into the bedrooms & bathrooms. The next morning we knocked on the owners door to ask if these clippings could be raked up, I even said I would rake them myself if a rake could be provided. I spoke to a young girl who said her mother was still in bed. All that happened was a dustpan & brush, I had also asked for, was left outside the front door but the request itself was totally ignored. We had to endure this problem for the full weekend, there was nobody around to ask on both days. On the Monday we asked the owner again & were somewhat surprised at his manner as all he gave us were a list of his problems as to how busy he was & how his mower box needed welding. He then rather reluctantly said he would get his blower out to remove the clippings, which he did very roughly, leaving them piled against the side fence.This issue came very close to spoiling our whole week. In the same vein we also had to ask for the Games Room, as advertised as being available, to be open as it was full of old furniture & un-useable. The Games Room itself is very poor consisting of a dartboard & a very old, very dirty & rickity Pool table which I had to brush the dust & debris off to use. If the Pool table was in use the dartboard was too close to be safely used. On the Wednesday some new balls & cues suddenly appeared which did not help as the table was so warped it was impossible to have a proper game. I think it pushes the boundary to describe this wooden hut as a "Games Room".Although the swimming pool was advertised as being available & the weather was nice & sunny, we did not think it wise to asked for the pool cover to be removed.In summary, the Pros' are a good location, nice bedrooms & adequate facilities, whereas the Con's are a poor unprofessional attitude from the owners, not the "can do" attitude that successful businesses need to grow & thrive. Also the value for money is also poor, we paid more for this cottage in the low season as we have paid on the previous two years for high season. A work in progress is, I hope, a true description for this business."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Luccombe Barn. Our excellent hosts (in the adjacent barn conversion) Bill and Betty made sure that we had everything we needed. A spacious and well equipped kitchen diner and a very comfortable lounge provides an excellent base to relax. Together with a utility room and downstairs loo there is everything that you would possibly need. Upstairs is equally impressive with a large double bedroom and another large bedroom with 3 singles (and more floor space for another!) With a good sized bathroom with bath and separate shower you can't go wrong. Another plus is that there are windows on both sides of the kitchen and lounge so you get the benefit of morning and evening sun. The garden is great with lovely views over the lake. Not too far from the Exe Estuary cycle trail - a brilliant cycle (or walk) in alongside the canal to Exeter Quay and an amazing cycle track alongside the river and railway in the direction of Dawlish. Not to mention ferries at Topsham, Turf and Starcross ....enjoy!"

"We chose Luccombe Barn not only for its proximity to Exeter (15 minute drive), but also because it's one of only a few holiday homes that accept dogs but aren't based on working farms. The barn is gorgeous - spacious, well laid out, and furnished with everything we needed for a short break. All the fittings are of a high standard and the place is kept spotlessly clean by the two wonderful caretakers, Bill and Betty, who live across the yard. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and while they're quite happy to keep out of your way they're also great company and have plenty of advice on things to see and do locally. If you're a dog owner or not, this is a great place to visit. It's worth driving for 5 minutes to get to the best local beauty spots as there's only a fishery right on the doorstep, but we honestly couldn't have hoped for a better base. We very much hope to be back, if there's still availability this year!"

"I have never stayed in a more equipt cottage and we have done a LOT. 2 adults, 2 kids and a rather large dog. The Garden is large enough for a big dog and fully enclosed too. There is also a paddock which is well hedged in which our dog could run around. The pool was very welcome, its a suntrap there and there was NO WIND due to its placement. The kids really enjoyed the pool table, supervised Darts and Wendy House which are all about 10 meteres away from the gate. Washing machine was also used and worked well, there is also a rotary line for drying in the cottages garden. The owner is absolutely lovely. Incredibly helpful, we tried all her suggestions whilst we we there (2 weeks) and didnt regreat any. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for making us so welcome."

"Wonderful welcome and continuing care by the Landlords Bill and Betty. Quite a large cottage so no shortage of space and of course the fishing lakes are on the other side of the fenced in garden - garden great for dogs. My only slight disappointment was that I would have liked to have seen more spent on the bedding as pillows and small duvet not conducive for goods night sleep, especially given how much it cost for the week. I know that the Landlords were having the shower fixed as the water pressure is low and it needs a water pump except we booked late so they couldn't do it but I'm sure it'll be done for the next guests. Overall pleasantly surprised and hope we'd be welcome back next time. 9/10."
