    “We have stayed at this property before in 2017 and returned expecting the same standard and comfort.”

    However, the bedroom layout has changed (was 6 now 5) and there is now no grass garden. The grass area that remained as part of the property was not cut making it look untidy. Whilst the lack of grass did not have a massive impact on our stay the lack of outdoor garden furniture did and is a huge gap at this property. There is plenty of space on the outdoor terrace areas and balcony for outdoor sofas, loungers and just better quality outdoor furniture. There was no parasol (we arrived in the ...

    However, the bedroom layout has changed (was 6 now 5) and there is now no grass garden. The grass area that remained as part of the property was not cut making it look untidy. Whilst the lack of grass did not have a massive impact on our stay the lack of outdoor garden furniture did and is a huge gap at this property. There is plenty of space on the outdoor terrace areas and balcony for outdoor sofas, loungers and just better quality outdoor furniture. There was no parasol (we arrived in the heatwave) and just uncomfortable wooden picnic benches. The indoor dining seating is also uncomfortable. We managed to find some seat cushions in a cupboard but these should have been already in place. The reconfiguration of the bedrooms which happened after we made our booking was a major inconvenience. Cramming 3 x bunk beds into one small some and 2 x bunks into another room is ridiculous for young adults/teenagers. They had nowhere to put their stuff. May work for young children though having 6 young children in one room from memory would equal very little sleep ! Also the beds creek and too many bodies in one room makes the room stuffy and opening the windows during the evening/night open brings in flies leading to bitten unhappy teens. We had to move mattresses to the vacant 'wasted' wellness room (former king/twin size bedroom with ensuite and balconcy) for two 21 year old 6'3 boys. Total waste of a large bedroom. Whilst we were told about the change to rooms before we went and given an option to cancel the booking ( but no option of alternative suitable accommodation offered) it was too late for us to find something else so we had no option bit to go ahead. The kitchen is very well designed and has plenty of space for a large group. 2 ovens, 2 fridge-freezers, 2 dishwashers is execellent. However, there is not enough crockery a d glasses for a house of this size, no way enough for 17. Also would benefit for outdoor plastic plates, glasses etc. In summary whilst the barn is a great design, size and location we were really disappointed that it did not work well for our 3 families and we would not book this again. For the weekly rental price we paid for this property the standard was not acceptable and we are therefore requesting a part refund for the inconvience caused. We believe a third of the price paid would be reasonable compensation. Please pass this feedback to the owners and our request for renumeration. Thank you. Paula Tribe

The property

Moult Hill Barn is a unique modern camping barn, ideal for multiple families looking for a South Devon break.

Situated in a peaceful rural location, just a 10 minute walk down to stunning South Sands beach or a short drive to the waterfront, shops and restaurants of picturesque Salcombe, the barn offers spacious accommodation for large groups. A stylish front door featuring a porthole leads into a spacious and bright entrance hallway with oak flooring and a high vaulted ceiling, immediately welcoming you into the property.

Large floor-to-ceiling glass windows look into the main living area and wide double glass doors lead into the main living space, whilst an oak and glass open tread staircase rises to the first floor. The main living space is a fabulous open plan, incredibly spacious area with stylish oak flooring throughout, perfect for entertaining, relaxing or simply enjoying the peace and tranquillity of this countryside location.

A beautifully designed kitchen with granite worktops and large central island makes self-catering a pleasure for large numbers, with the benefit of two ovens, two dishwashers and two fridge/freezers. The large dining area features a long wooden table and twelve chairs, with an additional extending table and chairs to accommodate larger groups.

Windows overlook the side and rear of the barn, and across neighbouring fields, and large glass doors lead out onto the extensive terrace, with a gas barbeque for al fresco dining.

Moving into the living area, the room can be instantly heated by the delightful wood burning stove; why not relax in front of the fire in one of the four large sofas whilst enjoying a movie on the TV, after a busy day at the beach or enjoying the stunning local coastline! A utility room also sits on the ground floor with a washing machine and tumble dryer, and a ground floor cloackroom offers a wc.

There are five bedrooms in total; three on the ground floor and two on the first floor. On the ground floor there is a large bedroom with super-king-size bed (which can be made into twin beds if requested at time of booking) with a spacious and accessible en-suite wet room catering for less mobile guests. The second ground floor bedroom is a bunk room with three sets of full size bunk beds, the top bunks of which are suitable for anybody (including adults 125 kg max) over six years of age, and attached to this bedroom is a bathroom with toilet, bath and shower. The third ground floor bedroom is also a bunk room and is an ideal cosy space for a family or group of up to six people, containing one set of bunk beds with a trundle bed under (for three children) and a triple bunk combination.

The top bunk is suitable for children age six and over, and the lower bunk (a small double) is perfect for adults.

Attached to this bedroom is an en suite featuring a walk-in shower, double basin and wc. As we take the oak and glass staircase to the first floor, we come to two further spacious bedrooms both with twin beds (which can be made into super-king size beds if requested at time of booking), both offering en-suites featuring walk-in showers, basins and wc. Also on the first floor is a wellness and teaching/presentation room with smart TV, chairs, yoga mats and dumbbells, offering a flexible room for group activities.

Get online and enjoy being taught a fitness session, learn what is best for your body with Pilates or do something a little more relaxing, the choice is yours!

The room is also equipped for guests looking for a break out space or for an area to use when planning the next exploration of the beautiful South Devon coastline, with French windows opening onto a balcony to let the refreshing Salcombe air in. Secure off-road parking, for up to six cars.

Moult Hill Barn is just a 10-15 minute walk from the beautiful sandy beach at South Sands, perfect for sandcastles or water sports.

Hop on the tiny South Sands Ferry from the beach to enjoy Salcombe from the water, or take the short drive to the centre of the popular sailing town to wander around pretty streets, exploring art galleries and individual shops.

Enjoy fresh Salcombe crab and locally caught seafood at one of the many restaurants, or sample some delicious Salcombe Dairy ice cream whilst soaking up the wonderful views. Offering flexible accommodation, Moult Hill Barn is the ideal destination for a large group holiday to the beautiful sailing town of Salcombe.
