We had a lovely stay at Prixford barn, very quiet location and handy location for exploring North Devon. Just a few additions to the barn would be good, somewhere to hang coats and a mirror in the bedroom would be good. Definitely the foliage on the windows needs trimming back.

The cottage is in a good location with great views that are obscured by overgrown folage. The sofa is awful, so uncomfortable! There is nowhere to hang coats or jackets and only a small rail in the bedroom. The only mirror is in the bathroom, which makes hair drying ect difficult. The kitchen is ok as is the bathroom. The bed is comfortable. HottubRead more is ok. In short it's ok but a bit basic. Hide

A little disappointing as it has so much more potential to make it feel more welcoming, homely and comfortable (despite covid)! Location was really good for exploring the coast.

Felt barn very basic for what we paid. Not very comfortable and apart from bathroom no other mirror available. No storage space for food. Very little hanging space for clothes. Garden furniture OK to sit on if you are a child also rusty. Surrounding bushes need cutting as block view from windows also overhanging tree near front door.

We had a nice break at Prixford Barn. Nice remote location, but less than a 10minute drive to shops etc. The owners were very nice and helpful.

However it was not a problem for us to park slightly down (less than 30 secs) from the Barn to avoid this. Hide
