This converted barn rests on the outskirts of Hartland and can sleep six people in three bedrooms.

The Crooked Branch is a converted barn adjacent to a country house on the outskirts of the pretty village of Hartland, 3 miles from the dramatic north west Devon coast and can sleep six people in three bedrooms. There is an open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area and a comfortable sitting area. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two doubles, one benefiting from an en-suite shower room and an adult bunks room, as well as a separate shower room.

Outside there is a private patio with furniture at the front of the cottage, plus use of a shared garden, fishing lakes, BBQ area, hot tub and games room with table tennis. The cottage also benefits from ample off road parking. The Crooked Branch is perfect for a family holiday at any time of the year.

The property was filthy. Stained sheets, dirt, dust and dead flies behind every piece of furniture and on surfaces. Fridge needed cleaning on arrival, kitchen surfaces we cleaned ourselves. Hair in the beds, both human and what looked like animal hair. No pillow protectors in any rooms or mattress protector in one room. Ensuite shower was blocked with months worth of hair. We did complain about this and were given a luke warm apology. We did receive some complementary drinks as an apology. We would have checked out immediately if we were not in the Summer holidays and we'd paid so much. We spent most of our time in the cottage cleaning it. The hot tub is across a yard, not attached to the property, so can be used by all guests from the cottages and campsite. We used it 3 times then stopped as it was full of foam and had a scum ring around it. The 'games room' is in the bar which was shut. Overall I wouldn't stay here again. It's a shame as it could be really lovely if it was cared for.
