"Patio areas although enclosed by fences and gates may not be totally dog proof if your dog is small enough to squeeze underneath." HH reply: "Thank you for your feedback. We've spoken to the owners who have confirmed that very small dogs can indeed fit under the gates. In order to prevent dogs escaping they are able to provide (upon request) wooden planks to help block off the gap."

"Had a lovely holiday at Hawthorne Barn in East Allington ideal for us as we went as a family so 2 of us in our 50's 2 in there 30's and our little grandson who is 2 and we all loved it bedroom with en-suite on ground floor for us and two bedrooms on lower floor one with on suite and another bathroom on that floor so perfect for us all. Ideal for the 2 year old as its off the beaten track a little so he could play without worrying about traffic etc also so close to beautiful beach especially bigbury in Sea which was our favourite, Hope Cove was lovely, loved Dartmouth ad grandson loved the steam railway and Paignton Zoo loads to do will be going back that's for sure so Thank You Helpful Holidays for helping us all have an amazing holiday.

"We had a fantastic time this holiday. The accomodation was superb and location was perfect to get to all of the places that we wanted to go. Althought it is a 7 mile drive to the nearest beach this was not a problem. The accomodation was extremely high spec and very clean. We will definately be returning."

"My family and I had a wonderful week staying at Hawthorn Barn. I found The Helpful Holidays website very informative and easy to use. All the important details that we needed to know regarding having my 92 year old Mother in law with us were there.
The accommodation was perfect for her needs with a bedroom on the ground floor and a walk in shower.
We particularly enjoyed private facilities with all three bedrooms.( We were two couples plus Mum)
All in all, beautiful cottage, stunning views,good location.
Helen and Richard (our hosts) were very welcoming, very friendly and very helpful. The fresh flowers and cream tea on our arrival were much appreciated .
