Want a quiet location with local shop and pub on the doorstep and a beautiful coastline and countryside around you then this is for you. The accomodation is first class, as seasoned holiday cottage users this is in our top three! We struggle to think of anything the owners have not provided or supplier in the cottage.

The Barn was very well equipped and comfortable. Kitchen equipment was very clean. The courtyard garden and paddock were ideal for our two dogs. - Labernese and a Cocker pup ( we used the pups crate inside, to stop them going up the stairs). Lovely, light filled barn, in a good location - quiet area, but 5 min walk to pub, shop and a lovely church Read more- We attended Midnight Mass - warm welcome and a lovely service. We had a great Christmas ( the tree made it feel very homely) . Hide

Major issue with flies inside the property. The management company said it wasn't a big issue and something to be expected for this time of year, but they weren't the ones having to clean up 30 or 40 flies off the kitchen work tops each day.

A fantastic barn! All living areas are spacious and comfortable with a very well-stocked and appointed kitchen. Fabulous views from the kitchen. The hot tub and the gardens were exactly as advertised and both added a great deal to our holiday. The local pub is worth a visit and is only around a 6 minute walk. A wealth of attractions in the area.

Loved the location so quiet and peaceful and not to far from shops and restaurants if you needed to venture out. It had everything you needed inside the cottage and felt right at home there. Great location for travelling into Bideford and other surrounding areas but just the right place to relax in when back because located off the beaten track.
