    This is the second time we have rented this place,solely for the peaceful surroundings and ease to local villages and the coast. Still feels cosy,but has a lot of room.Would we book again?of course.

    Absolutely incredible stay! Lovely hosts who went out of their way to make sure we got there safe and settled. Could not fault it at all! Definitely worth the money and we will be returning.

    Had a wonderful stay at The Barn. The kids (and adults) really enjoyed the tractor ride treat as well as making sure the sheep and donkeys had their breakfast every morning. Ideal location for exploring North Devon. A lovely village and a well equipped, quiet, spacious cottage. Would recommend adding a clothes rack to the cottage. The tumble dryer is extremely useful but when you have had a day on the beach it would be very useful to hang wet suits and other items that can't go in the dryer too.

    This was a lovely cottage and the owners were wonderful. They went above and beyond to make our stay extra special.

    Mrs Lang was very friendly and welcoming, the cake was much enjoyed and my little boy loved the tractor ride. We liked the Barn very much and it was well located for the trips out to Bude and Westward Ho! We would stay here again in the future.
