Get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life by taking your holiday in rural North Devon, where this converted barn offers everything you could need for a relaxing holiday.

Escape from the hustle and bustle and retreat to this delightful barn conversion in rural North Devon, with your loved one and two canine companions. Perfect for a romantic break away, this cosy one-bedroom home enjoys a secluded countryside location with some great walks and rambles on the doorstep. If you’re craving the coast, the area’s stunning beaches are a short drive away.

This pretty cottage is one of three properties situated in this peaceful area and offers a comfortable, homely base for your break. The open-plan living area boasts traditional vaulted beamed ceilings which add to its character and charm. Your furry pals will make a beeline for the best spot in front of the warming wood burner, which creates a lovely ambience in the lounge area as you relax and unwind. Cook up a storm in the kitchen, which has everything you need for rustling up a snack or meal for two, which can then be enjoyed at the dining table. The warm and inviting king-size bedroom is the perfect place to end your day as you drift off into a deep sleep. Step outside and soak up your tranquil surroundings while the dogs explore, as you enjoy some al fresco dining in the enclosed outdoor space.

Have a bite to eat in the local pub 2 miles away, before walking it off with a stroll around the coastal town of Bude (15 miles), which has a great beach, shops and eateries. Let the pups take the lead and join the South West Coast Path which boasts spectacular views. Explore the famous cobbled streets of the popular fishing village of Clovelly (15 miles) or the rugged coastline of Hartland (17 miles), which is a sight to behold.

Excellent place to stay - would highly recommend! The hosts were incredibly thoughtful - provided fresh eggs, milk, croissants, biscuits and even some dog food for our pup. Plus - a fully stocked kitchen (even tin foil was stocked in the kitchen drawer). Really looking forward to returning, as a good base to get to Bude & even Newquay (an hour drivRead moree away). Thank you for a lovely stay! Hide

The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. A beautiful quiet location, the perfect place to recharge your batteries. The owners are very friendly and a nice welcome pack with fresh eggs from their own chickens.

Despite above, we enjoyed our stay and the cottage was comfortable and the hosts were very friendly and provided a very nice welcome pack. Would recommend but with reservations.

Lovely tranquil surroundings ideal for those of us who enjoy the countryside. Would definitely return but not in high season ,only because we don't like crowds in the hotspots.

Dairy Cottage is lovely but for us it was too far from the coast or tourist attractions. The property is only accessible via narrow country lanes which need careful and slow driving! Also be aware postcode does not register on Tomtom - use Google maps if you need directions.

Lovely little barn - great little rural setting a real break from city/town life for a week. Sara and Colin left a lovely welcome pack on arrival and we were left to expore as much or as little as we liked. Loved to visit the sheep and ducks and to see the kittens roaming around playing. Great barn very comfortable and everything to hand.
