  • "Our second visit to Glenview and it won’t be out last!"

    Beautiful cottage, very well equipped in a stunning location. Has everything we want and more. Thank you to Mr & Mrs Peacock for the welcome items.

  • "Glenview was a beautiful property set in a rural area just outside the bustling towns of Lynton and Lynmouth."

    The sound of the Brook outside the window gave us the best nights sleep we've had and despite this property being near a road we were not disturbed once even with windows open. Property was well equipped with every amenity you would need for a holiday, felt like having a home away from home. Great location for access to some of North Devons highlights.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay which was enhanced by the beautiful weather we were fortunate enough to experience."

    The cottage is very well appointed and presented; almost like a home from home. There is a lot to see in the area and the cottage is well positioned to explore.

  • "Just wow! Glenview is a stunning property and your every need is catered for."

    It was a fantastic home from home, a wonderful base for walking, straight from the house on some days. The hosts couldn’t be more helpful and we were so thrilled with the wine, milk and home made honey. Literally everything you’d need was there; from dishwasher tablets, fairy liquid, hand soap and washing powder to tea, coffee, sugar and everything in between. The beds were super comfy and the towels fluffy. It’s no wonder guests return year after year. We absolutely loved it and am sure we will return. The booking process with Sykes was so easy and the property exactly as described; If not better! We just couldn’t fault it in any way. The best holiday ever. Thank you to our hosts for making it so welcoming.

  • "The cottage exceeded expectations."

    It was very well situated, a short drive to Lynton and Lynmouth and a beautiful walk through the woods along the riverbank from Barbrook to Lynton. Ideal for a family group and dog. The cottage was very well equipped and we would definitely recommend and hopefully return.

  • "Glenview cottage was absolutely beautiful both inside and out."

    It was immaculately clean on our arrival and the provisions of tea, coffee and milk were much appreciated as was the gift of locally produced honey. The cottage was extremely well kept and had everything that we needed.

  • "Stunning property."

    So well equipped and very homely. Lovely to have milk in the fridge on arrival, and a bottle of wine! The twin room bed wasn't too comfortable (for an adult) and the bats in the attic can get very noisy at night. I would think its mostly children that would sleep in the twin room and asleep before they get really active. Not easy to get takeaway here, and if eating out book in advance or you may struggle. Overall a wonderful location and lots of fun things do do!

  • "Glenview is a lovely cottage."

    Although it is very close to Lynton and Lynmouth, due to the hilly nature of the area, there is no easy walk in to town. However don't let that put you off. Glenview is extremely well equipped, with everything you would need to cook meals plus plenty of crockery and glasses, which means using the dishwasher is not a problem. It is spotlessly clean and beds are very comfy. The two showers are excellent and having a further toilet downstairs is a bonus.There are TV's in almost all the rooms and lots of little extras provided, including all cleaning and laundry products plus milk, tea, coffee, sugar, juice, salt/pepper, vinegar, tin foil. Even though it is right on the road there was no problem with traffic noise at night even with the windows open. It's elevated position means it may be difficult for anyone with mobility issues although there is a sloping path up from the road as an alternative to the steps. Overall the property is excellent.

    It was very clean and spacious. The location is excellent with lots of amazing walks available. Our family of 5 settled in well and had a lovely holiday.

  • "A good well equipped cottage, where we had fun as a family."

    The garden is not enclosed and next to a fairly busy B road so small children or dogs need supervision. Nearby petrol station (200m or so) has some basics. The permissive footpath the other side of river (cross footbridge, up steps, turn left, find little wooden gate) can Take you to pub at Lyn Bridge, or west Lyn, and Also down hill to Lynmouth. Walking further? Watersmeet, And Tarka Trail are also easily accessed by this route, but remember this is North Devon it is very hilly!

    The house is very well equipped and a comfortable place to return to after a busy day visiting the towns and beaches.

  • "The cottage was a home away from home."

    The owner had left milk in the fridge; tea coffee and sugar as well as basic condiments. We really enjoyed the white wine and the honey (although not together!) throughout the holiday. The cottage was immaculate and well placed to see so many places in the area. We did enjoy the walk into Lynton and everyone we met in the area was helpful and approachable. We had no reason to call the owner during our stay as so much was explained in the information left there - including the complicated, but useful, re-cycling information. The kitchen was very well appointed and the equipment supplied was as good as, if not better, than our own! We have used Helpful Holidays before and will continue to use them when we want to stay in the area.

    It is beautifully kept, comfortable beds, relaxing lounge and lovely large outdoor area which we used continually as the weather was so glorious. There is a river nearby that you can hear which just adds to the tranquil space nestled in between lots of trees, so relaxing. Very close to Lynmouth which is stunning and just what you would expect from a charming Devon seaside town. Recommend highly, and already planning to return!

The property

This refurbished detached house is situated in Barbrook above the road which leads to Lynton and Lynmouth.

Facing lovely woodland around the River Lyn, it is friendly accommodation for families or adults to explore the area.

You can either head up twenty steps from the parking area to your front door or use the level access from the road.

Inside, through the hall, you will be greeted by the smart oak-floored sitting room with its French windows opening to a patio.

The big kitchen is a lovely place to cook whilst you watch TV and then enjoy meals around the central table.

Stairs lead up to the three welcoming bedrooms, one en suite and two with TVs.

The lawned garden separates the house from the road, and you also have a big patio to one side for sitting peacefully sheltered by woods and flowers.

This is wonderful walking, cycling and mountain biking country, or you can enjoy a ride from the local stables.

A path by the river leads to a pub in a mile, or head to Lynton and Lynmouth for pubs and restaurants and a ride on the funicular railway.

This is a homely and welcoming house for exploring the area at any time of year.
