    We were Jonny and Lindsey's first guest after lockdown and all reasonable measures were being taken to protect guests and hosts. Jonny & Lindsey were on hand if needed and regularly checked everything was okay. On arrival we were greeted with a lovely homemade cake a nice bottle of wine and some cheesey biscuits. The horse gin is a beautiful barn conversion which has been carried out very thoughtfully and is very well equipped, even the dogs were provided with dog treats and their own towels. We all slept very well on good quality beds and bedding. The lake is a lovely feature of the property but sadly we didn't get a chance to sit and enjoy the lake as the weather wasn't kind to us but there are some lovely spots to do this. We did however enjoy walking our dogs round the lake and feeding the fish especially the large golden fish that we named Moby Dick. There are local facilities within a short drive and the North Devon beaches are less than an hours drive away. we will be back again once Coronavirous allows all of the attractions and local amenities to function normally.

    Excellent cottage fitted out to a very high standard with everything you could wish for. It is also set in lovely grounds with a large lake and is a very pet friendly environment. We loved it and would certainly recommend it to anyone.

    We stayed at the Horse Gin for a long weekend in November. The cottage was stunning inside, clearly with no expense spared on the standard of finish throughout. We stayed with 2 dogs who absolutely loved the area, walking straight out of the cottage into empty country road with fields and streams everywhere. The lake on site was great too and both our dogs loved an early morning swim whilst we walked round it. The location is great if you just want to relax and get away from it all, with some local villages 5-10 minutes drive away and Tiverton 20 minutes away. The hosts Jonny and Lindsey were very friendly, made sure to come and see us on our first morning and were always approachable and happy to chat and get to know us. We got to the cottage late on a Friday to find homemade brownies and a bottle of red wine waiting for us which was a great touch and made us feel welcome from the start. The bed was really comfortable and we had great sleep, with the cottage itself also being cosy and relaxing with a log burner in the living area which we used on 2 nights. A few board games were also in the cottage alongside a selection of DVDs. Overall I couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough and the value for money is great, I cant think of a single negative point and we cant wait to come back in the near future!

    Excellent comfortable cottage credit to the friendly owners where nothing was too much trouble. Great location for exploring north and south Devon. The cottage has everything thing you need comfortable beds spacious rooms and modern bathroom. Even the little touches like welcome pack a bottle of wine nibbles and a Homemade Courgette and Lemon drizzle cake. Our dogs enjoyed a morning stroll around the lake and grounds it was also nice to sit and feed the fish in the afternoon sunshine. The nearest village 3 miles away as a pub shop and a fish and chip van every Friday outside the school I would recommend.Keep up the hard work Lindsey & Jonny.

    Such a beautiful cottage and genuinely lovely hosts in Lyndsey and Jonny. Our stay at Horse Gin cottage was so relaxing and enjoyable with lovely country walks with our labradors or sitting around the lake enjoying the scenery. The homemade Victoria sponge and treats for the dogs on arrival were just a couple of the extra touches which added to a lovely stay. Can’t wait for the next visit.
