Venue Testimonials

"It was a truly fantastic day...ANRÁN was the perfect venue for us. The outside courtyard area was ideal for pre-meal drinks, and a great space for people to mingle. Once everyone entered the Glass House for the meal, it blew them away. The venue looked spectacular and the space was very conducive to people chatting and having a great time."

"It really is a place of absolute beauty and relaxation set in the most stunning countryside. Mike and Edwin – possibly two of the loveliest people you will meet - are so accommodating, talented, funny and friendly and I believe they instantly understood the type of people we were, which was really important to us. ANRÁN was perfect for us, our family and friends." 

"The location made you forget about work and stress. The venue itself offered us the ability to accommodate a lot of our guests and at the same time provide different options for the multiple activities we wanted to have over the three day weekend. Mike and Edwin also brought our - out of the ordinary - ideas for the event to life. They visualised with us how to transform the farm into what turned out to be a beautiful bohemian venue." 

“Oh My Goodness!! Absolutely amazing. Simply put, this place in perfect in every way. Immaculate and spotlessly clean in every aspect. The Molton Brown products and shower were a treat to use even down to the water pressure which was spot on. It's little things like this that make a stay away from home perfect.”

“Amazing venue! My partner and I had the pleasure of attending a friend’s wedding reception at ANRÁN and we were speechless the moment we walked in. The barn in which they hold the reception is spacious, light, simple yet beautiful! I would LOVE to have my wedding reception here!”

“We rented the Dairy Farm for 16 people over the New Year and couldn't have asked for anything more. Mike is a fantastic host and ensures that you have an enjoyable stay. Everything in the house has been finished to the highest standards from the high quality bedding to the antique furniture.”

“We spent a wonderful couple of days at ANRÁN. They have renovated the farmhouse and furnished it tastefully with bags of charm, style and comfort. It is the most perfect place to unwind and relax.”

“ANRÁN is beautiful, warm and elegant and such a wonderful place to go to for relaxation and unwinding. Every little detail has been thought of. Deep sunken baths with Molton Brown products. Pure luxury!"  

“Just to say that the house was spotlessly clean. The house had EVERYTHING we could possibly desire and we were all sad to come home. I could wax lyrical for hours about the beauty, style, comfort, beds... oh, the beds....but I'll stop. This was the most beautiful house we've ever stayed in.”

A big thank you to Mike for making our stay so comfortable. We were warmly invited in from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. The barn conversions are stunning and we wouldn't want to change a thing. I can't recommend this stay highly enough.

Where to start? A gorgeous converted barn tastefully decorated with all the comforts. Kitchen, very well equipped. Bathroom with great products and even slippers! If you are looking for true English countryside it cannot get better than this. Even if it is raining you have beautiful places to visit in the area and beautiful walks. We truly enjoyed our stay at ANRÁN. We will be back. Thank you Mike! 

We had such a wonderful stay at ANRÁN Manor - it really was a perfect retreat that instantly felt like our own home. Edwin and Mike were the perfect hosts - always available to provide recommendations for dining and activities in the local area and the attention to detail throughout was first class. The decor was beautiful and very tastefully done - so much so that my wife took lots of photos before we left for ideas that we hope to replicate in our own place! You must find some time to enjoy a glass of wine in the Pig Sty, overlooking the lake - we didn't want to leave!

Wow. We were so happy to find this place! This is certainly not your average B&B and if you're looking for something really special with a classy yet homely feel then you have found it here. Truly 5 star accommodation. The living spaces are beautifully restored and tastefully decorated with gorgeous furniture and quality linen etc. We especially appreciated the deep bath and the huge, ridiculously comfortable bed. Absolute heaven! The grounds and the idyllic countryside surroundings are equally stunning. Last but not least, our lovely hosts. Mike and Edwin were friendly and accommodating, giving us space to enjoy our stay but on hand if we needed anything. We felt so welcome and comfortable and we hope to visit again. 

We rented four adjoining barn rooms for our son's 21st birthday and had the most marvellous time at ANRÁN. Mike and Edwin are the perfect hosts and the accommodation was beautiful with excellent well-thought out extras including local cheeses, bread and eggs for breakfast, two well equipped kitchens, amazing en suite bathrooms with Molton Brown products, enormous king sized beds and ample storage. The enclosed Courtyard afforded privacy and you really felt you were in the heart of Devonshire countryside yet a short drive to the coast. The meal at the local pub was delicious with extensive menu and local beers. On Saturday we had a champagne celebration dinner and everyone helped with the preparations and our local caterer Suzie was an absolute gem, highly recommended for your private party. A truly memorable weekend and we cannot wait for the next family celebration so we can return. Thank you to everyone at ANRÁN, a truly delightful experience.

We cannot speak highly enough of Mike and Edwin or their beautiful place. From the moment we arrived to the moment we were waved off, we felt like we were in heaven. Their taste is absolutely impeccable and no request was too high. When we mentioned that we wanted to pop out for dinner, Edwin ran off and returned instantly with a fabulous booking and a booked cab! I have never enjoyed a stay so much, or met two such kind and warm people. They are truly gifted hosts, with fabulous taste. We are already planning our return. Thank you so much for the best few days we've ever had.

Our stay at Mike and Edwin's accommodation was brilliant from beginning to end. We received a warm welcome and we loved the luxury barns, the amenities exceeded our expectations, we slept incredibly well and the location is relaxing and peaceful. We've stayed in a lot of places around the world but Mike and Edwin's place sets a very high standard and we almost want to keep it a secret. We would love to go back.

A truly wonderful trip. Everything was perfectly thought through. The most comfortable and enjoyable stay and everyone was so welcoming. We will definitely be returning soon.

We had the most idyllic, restful stay.... Edwin and Mike were so lovely and so helpful and we would stay again in a heartbeat! Highly recommended….

We had a wonderful warm welcome - literally, as on the chilly day, the heated floors were an unbelievably great surprise. The luxurious shower, Molten Brown products and warm, fluffy robes added to the spa feeling of the place. Easy drive to Totnes and Darlington - our principal reasons for visiting, but we could quite happily have spent the whole weekend in the unit. Shame the weather was crappy as we'd have loved to have sat out in the beautiful courtyard. Next time!

Our host, Mike, was just the perfect combination of being there on our arrival to welcome us and to show us around and giving us completely uninterrupted privacy. Mike and his team were always around to give us the low down on local walks and places to eat, even making a reservation for our first evening at a fantastic local restaurant. During our stay we hardly saw a soul and it felt as if we had the place to ourselves. Whenever we had a question or request Mike was always on hand to respond right away.

This was such a great AirBnB experience. It was ultimate luxury without the hassle of bellhops and 'too much' service. There were people around if you needed anything but otherwise you were left to your own devices which we really appreciated. The bed was incredibly comfortable and you can tell that attention was paid to every detail. We especially loved the Molton Brown toiletries, Nespresso machine and the heated floors! Overall, it's great for a peaceful, luxurious getaway and we'll definitely be back!

An amazing property in a phenomenal location. Edwin and Mike have created a beautiful space and maintain it to the highest possible standards. Thought has gone into all areas so that you don't have to think for yourself while relaxing and unwinding. So pleased that we found this luxury oasis to start and end each day exploring Devon. We will certainly be returning and highly recommending. Exceptional location, but above all, just peaceful and stress-free.

Fantastic accommodation, everything you could wish for and a home away from home. The location was perfect to explore the area and we enjoyed our albeit too short stay.

We met our hosts straight away upon arrival. They were very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. Mike was kind enough to give us plenty of advise on walks, restaurants and other activities in the area. The complimentary breakfasts were great too.
