    We have had another amazing and very relaxing stay. Erik - you really outdid yourself with this years welcome as we were all very impressed with the alpaca carvings on the pumpkin outside The Barn. Thank you once again for making the childrens stay extra special by showing them all the animals.
    Moorparks Barn is a fantastic place to stay and we shall spread the word to friends and family.

    Thank you for yet another fantastic stay. Our second visit to Moorparks and it never disappoints. The Barn was immaculate and has everything you would need, we had an excellent nights sleep, the beds are sooo comfortable.
    We all loved seeing the animals in the mornings, the grounds here are lovely. We would highly recommend coming here to everybody!
    We hope to see you again very soon.

    Thank you Erik & Michele for a lovely 2 week stay at Moorparks Barn! It was our 2nd visit & the warm welcome was much appreciated after our long journey, as was the cream tea & supplies. It felt just as we left it last year but with additional sheep and ducks.

    What a fabulous place to stay, spotlessly clean and very well furnished, Moorparks is set in lovely quiet surroundings and Erik and Michelle are great hosts, friendly and very welcoming, they are always available if you need them but leave you alone to enjoy your time there.
    The animals are great, especially the eggs from the chickens it’s nice to just to sit and watch all the animals, we were fortunate to be there to when the new ducks arrived, my children spend all their time out with the animals.
    Although Moorparks is situated inland it serves as a great place to stay giving you options on where to go, we travelled to different places everyday and would strongly recommend a visit to Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, lynmouth, Westwood Ho!, Clovelly and crabbing at Appledore, if you fancy a drive then visit Brixham.
    Highly recommend a stay at Moorparks, this is our second year in a row and we have just booked again for 2020

    Our third year at Moorparks and once again we loved every moment. The Barn feels like home and has everything we need (and more), we tried a few different activities this time and really enjoyed them all. Horse Riding, Rock climbing, Speed boat ride, Eden project, Alpaca walking....... Erik & Michele, thank you once again for having us. It has been an absolute pleasure and I have a feeling we will be reuturning for our holiday again next year!!

    2nd visit to Moorparks, have stayed in the Barn & the Cottage and both are tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and very, very comfortable. Lovely outside seating areas in sun or shade. Erik & Michele are very warm and welcoming, the Devon cream tea and eggs from the 'girls' were very well received on arrival.
    The sheep and alpacas are very friendly and you can get up close and personal if you desire ? ?. We would certainly recommend a stay here and will certainly be back. Thankyou Erik & Michele

    What another great time here at The Barn. Now our 3rd year in a row. Where else can you get such a treat? Thank you Erik & Michele, again for your time and all of the 'behind the scenes' effort to make our stay memorable. Your attention to detail and the thought you have put into supplying all one needs for a tip top stay remains unbounded ! "Thank you so much" seems inadequate for all you have done; however, you know what we mean! ;-). Hope to see you again soon.

  • We came from Italy to enjoy a bit of England countryside and to learn about sheep, alpacas and hens....and we absolutely found the best place ever!! Thanks you so much, Michele and Erik for the warm welcome, for all your explanations on your wonderful animals!! Erik also gave us really good tips on whats on and what to do here around and we had a really pleasant stay. We really had a nice long weekend out in the countryside in a really lovely barn where we felt at home. Thank you

  • Thank you ever so much for such a fantastic welcome Erik. It was very much appreciated after such a long drive. We have all had a brilliant week but it has been a particularly special time for the children, who have absolutely loved seeing, feeding and stroking the sheep, alpacas and chickens.

  • Our reason for visiting Devon was to spend time with my cousin and her family who live in Torrington. Therefore our days out were long and busy, however, as soon as we drove along the driveway we couldn't wait to go through the amazing entrance and be embraced by this wonderful barn with all its comfort and tranquility. Thank you Erik and Michele for a wonderful place to lay our weary heads and for all the special touches. This barn provided everything we needed and more. Our only regret is we only booked one week. Hopefully we will see you again.

  • Beautiful barn and lovely to sit in the garden surrounded by bird song. I enjoyed watching the animal antics and particularly the nightly ritual of the chickens filing into the hen house in "pecking order". We were blessed with glorious weather fitting of an equally glorious part of the country. Thank you for your hospitality.

  • Perfect Family Holiday! From the moment we arrived at Moorparks Farm, we knew we were going to have a relaxing and fun holiday with the kids - a complete escape. Erik was with his sheep when we arrived. He greeted us and made us feel very welcome, before showing us around our home for the week - Moorparks Barn. The accommodation is absolutely perfect and better than the pictures (and they were good). A brilliant mix of old features, with modern comforts. Every detail has been thought about and clearly Erik and Michele are very passionate about what the are creating at Moorparks. Something they should be very proud of. Very sad to be packing up the car as i write this. We will be back. (Taken from the guest book)

  • A short half term break and a determination to experience the Tarka trail from end to end by bike with two (almost) teenagers. We achieved our aims and much, much more besides. We chose Moorparks because of its easy access to Gt. Torrington and the mid point of the Tarka trail, and leave, having felt very lucky and privileged to have stayed here. The Barn is simply beautiful, and very thoughtfully equipped. There is nothing that we have felt we needed, and lots of little personal touches that make you feel instantly 'at home'. With warm, welcoming and extremely helpful hosts, we have enjoyed our most memorable short break - ever! It is so difficult to believe that this is Erik and Michele's first season because everything has been just so right ! Thank you for letting us share your Barn for a few days - we hope to be returning. (Taken from the guest book)

There is good parking and the most beautiful views from the private gardens. The delightful neighbours Alpacas and Sheep (all named, as they are pets) are a real bonus. The central position made it possible to visit so many interesting places. We definitely would recommend staying here and hope to visit again soon."
