THE IVY BARN BED AND BREAKFAST - The hidden gem in South Devon
BOOKINGS DURING THIS CRISIS-This section is being frequently updated due to the ever changing situation
As from the 23.03.20 the Government ordered CLOSURE of all hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, campsites, caravan parks, boarding houses, and short term holiday lets for commercial/leisure use . There is an exemption which allows permanent residents (those who are homeless through flooding or otherwise) and key workers to stay in hotels or bed and breakfasts. This order is to be reviewed in three weeks by the Government but due to the ever increasing severity of this crisis this is likely to be extended.
As a result of this order we can only take key workers and if anyone wishes to stay at The Ivy Barn we will be asking for proof of identity and proof you are a key worker. We hope you understand as it is a criminal offence to allow anyone else to stay during this 3 week period. We have contacted all guests who were due to stay during this period and all have been understanding given the situation and transferred their holiday to another date. If the period is extended we will contact any future guests that fall within any extended period with a view to rescheduling the holiday.
We thank you for your support and look forward to welcoming you back when things get back to normal. In the meantime we hope you stay home and stay safe!
The Ivy Barn Bed and Breakfast is run by Husband and Wife team Rik and Nicky, it is a dog friendly B&B in the heart of a small, quiet, picture postcard village nestled in the beautiful South Hams countryside in South Devon. Rik and Nicky also run the village pub, The Mildmay Colours Inn which specialises in serving Devon Ale and Cider.
Described as a hidden gem in an unspoilt area, The Ivy Barn Bed and Breakfast is ideal for those wishing to just get away from it all and to have a quality, relaxing stay. After a day exploring beautiful South Devon, you can unwind in the garden, relaxing with a book or a nice glass or cup of something refreshing. We are passionate about providing a warm and friendly welcome and a peaceful, calming place to stay.
The Ivy Barn is a solid stone barn which has been converted to form 6 ensuite rooms, one of which is a large two storey family room suitable for a family or a couple who would like more space. All our rooms have private ground floor access and offer all the facilities you would expect of a quality establishment. There is also plenty of free on-site parking.
Whether you’re looking for a mid-week or weekend break in a bed and breakfast in the South Hams or a longer holiday so you can really explore all that South Devon has to offer - The Ivy Barn is the perfect place to stay!
We offer an extensive breakfast choice every day. Our promise to you is that you will leave here well fed and very well looked after, feeling refreshed.
What more can you want? A relaxing and quiet place to stay, in the beautiful village of Holbeton with plenty of places to visit.
Some lovely reviews from guests.
Beautifully presented and a very quiet location
Lovely place - clean and comfy.
A little off the beaten track, however, once in the village - very nice.

Wonderful B and B run by wonderful people
Comfortable and warm accommodation with lots of little touches that make this such a pleasant place to stay. Quiet location but ideally placed for exploring further afield. Rick and Nicky are really friendly, always keen to make sure your stay is pleasant and they have lots of local knowledge. The breakfast is superb and full of local produce. At night remember to look up, lack of light pollution means a fantastic display of stars on a clear night. We will be back.
Nothing to dislike.

Friendly hosts in a cute converted barn
My mother, daughter, and I recently stayed in the family suite for two nights. The rooms were immaculate, the beds comfortable, the breakfast delicious, and the hosts were kind and interesting people. I highly recommend this quaint bed and breakfast in this very beautiful part of Devon.

Lovely bed and breakfast in Devon village
Wonderful being in the center of Holbeton. Room was very comfortable and suited our needs for 5 nights perfectly. Owners and dog Merlin are very welcoming and give helpful advice about things to do and places to see in the area. Breakfast was excellent. Look forward to returning!
