    I have stayed in a number of holiday rentals over the last few years both in the UK and abroad and the Barn Owl is certainly in my top 3. A well appointed and maintained property, the owner took the trouble to put up a Christmas tree and some decorations as I was staying there over Christmas.

    Barn Owl is a beautifully converted Barn with every comfort and convenience, in a perfect location. The only slight disappointment was that I had looked forward to having lovely long warm baths in the very attractive roll top bath -but being not 'in the first flush of youth' I found that this was not possible because there were no 'grab' holds to facilitate getting out of the bath and I, therefore, had to use the shower, which is not really my favourite means of bathing. Other than that it was perfect. And the farmer John and his wife Catherine were charming and most welcoming.

    Barn Owl Cottage was an excellent holiday and provided a lovely, restful base for our stay in North Devon. The cottage was very well presented and comfortable - it was handy having a utility room. The outside areas were very well maintained and excellent for the children to run around on. The owners were very welcoming - we appreciated the biscuits and prosecco on arrival. We would heartily recommend it!

    We spent a lovely fortnight at Barn Owl and the cottage was above our expectations. We would love to return to continue exploring the area, lots to see within a short drive. Friendly owners and peaceful location.

    A fantastic holiday retreat. Perfect for our family. A quiet, rural location that is within easy reach of beaches, restaurants, shops and attractions. Great hosts that provide more than above the usual in a self-catering holiday let. We've stayed twice now and would definitely consider again.

    Barn Owl was well designed and its designer deserves a medal. There were just three minor things that needed improvement; 1. Better lighting in all areas, 2. A deeper mattress on the double bed, 3. Torpedo switches on the bedside lamps, as the switch was unreachable from the bed. Other than that we had an enjoyable time and were blessed with good weather all week.
