Only real downside was the weather but many places to visit on both north and south Devon Coasts to suit all tastes. Accommodation was ideal for our extended family comprising 15 adults and 4 children spread over 3 generations. Living rooms cosy and comfortable and enough bedrooms/beds/bathrooms for the various family units. Private garden was ideal for ball games for the kids and not so old adults between the showers.
One criticism is that if, like us, you want to self cater, despite there being two kitchens, we struggled at times "bulk" cooking and had to borrow minor items (can opener that worked an scissors) from adjoining renters. The utensils, otherwise, were in plentiful supply but scattered around in various drawers. That said we coped and all had a great time.

As a venue for an extended family gathering, this is ideal. Not pretentious but very comfortable.
2nd kitchen could be better equipped (no fridge). Venue was not easy to find even with sat.nav.
All in all an ideal location.
The property is cosy with two wood burners. Good cooking facilities and anything you might need. There's a lovely lake on site and also a pool table in a separate annex. The owner - Rosena - lives on site so if there is anything you need on arrival she's there to help. It's important to say that despite living on site she definitely gives you your space too (we hardly saw her after arrival). It is very long and thin as it's a converted barn but it was perfect for us as everyone fit in nicely with enough double beds and cooking facilities.
One word of caution - this barn isn't a luxury, top-of-the-range place to stay. It was perfect for us because we are low maintenance and we were there for a big party but if you're looking for luxury, this probably isn't for you.
