  • "Second stay at this comfortable property in a beautiful part of North Devon ."

    Very handy for coast and for Coast path walks. Friendly and helpful owners. Swimming pool is a great bonus! Hope to return again!

  • "Lovely loft apartment in the converted barn not far from Bude."

    I really enjoyed the pool although it was a bit cold (and I dont like very warm for swimming so did not expect jacuzzi temperature) initially perhaps because it just started to be used for the season. The accomodation is nice, comfy bed, peaceful bed and reasonably equipped kitchen. More coffee, working tin opener and some basics like more then one toilet roll and salt and pepper would be nice. Otherwise its really peaceful an great to escape busy life and city. Tamar lake is nice for fising and a walk around, Bude not fare at all or Boscastle

  • "We stayed here for a week and it's a lovely place."

    The owners are welcoming and friendly and even provided fizz (thank you!). Everything as advertised and we were even included in their weekly fish and chips run! Had a lovely time and made full use of the pool. House was warm and clean and we were particularly grateful for the airer provided. Only things I would mention for future guests is the sloped ceilings are very low (so if you're 6ft prepare to duck!) and the steps up are quite steep.

  • "Fitted sheets on Bed kept sliding off due to the water proof sheet underneath, bit of damp i the property which needs sorting out a simple mould and mildew spray in places and keep heat on in cold or damp weather and air circulation as much as possible."

    Spoke with the owners who where very nice and very helpful who told us that they where upgrading the windows and decoration over this coming winter which will improve the properties. overall a very nice peaceful place to come and shut down for a week and the use of the pool was a huge benefit which we used daily..

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in the loft."

    The hosts were so friendly and really accommodating. They even had some milk and bubbly in the fridge for our arrival!! We went with our two children who loved playing on the lawns and in the pool and it was amazing to have the pool to ourselves. The accommodation has very comfy beds and great facilities. Bude is only a short drive away and has a couple of lovely beaches. I'm sure we will be back sometime in the future to enjoy the loft again

    We had to put wash bags on the floor, not ideal. Also a small chair in the bedroom. (we did use one of the dining chairs during our stay. Otherwise a delightful venue.

    Properties surrounded on all sides by beautiful Devon countryside, but only about one and a half miles from an A road to explore further afield. We made good use of the pool, which was only 10 yards from the property entrance. The owners Chris and Teresa were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

    The swimming pool was an added bonus as being away from the beech and needed to cool down was brilliant from relaxing in the garden. The local village has six pubs chippy coop shops suppermarket for your needs Bude only 20 minute drive away. If you like a peaceful holiday then look no more. Barry & Lou
