Excellent home away from home
Wow, this is a truly wonderful holiday home. The owners were friendly and welcoming. This is definitely a 5 star barn, from the spacious, spotless accommodation right the way down to the complimentary toiletries. There was everything a family of four needed for the week. The children's bunk bedroom is super cute: beautifully decorated and filled with teddies and toys. The upstairs bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable with built-in wardrobes and even clothes hangers. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cutlery and crockery, including an electric whisk and a set of scales. We had a brilliant week in Devon. The barn is handy for lots of great attractions. We visited The Big Sheep, Exmoor Zoo, Arlington Court as well as Appledore and the beach. I would definitely recommend a stay at Cross Syke Barn.

Welcoming, warm & wonderful!

Perfect Devon hideaway!
Perfect choice for a trip to the Devon countryside. Cross Skye Barn is modern, super comfortable, surprisingly spacious and in a really beautiful setting. Kitted out with everything you could need and more, including games for nights in, and a beautiful pond/lake with a row boat, perfect for the summer time. stunning places for walking and really beautiful beaches a short drive away. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend a visit!

Wonderful country retreat
This is a wonderful, modern barn with beautiful views and country walks on the doorstep. It's modern yet very cosy and perfect to relax in on a winter evening. It's clearly very well looked after and the owners are welcoming and accommodating. We brought our 6 month old son and he loved it. Everything was very clean and tidy (important with the little man in tow!) and the location is perfect for nice country walks up and down all sorts of trails and pathways. There's even a big stock of DVDs, toys, games and puzzles to focus on in the evenings. We can?t recommend it highly enough for a family-friendly country holiday. We will be back!
