    “Other visitors have mentioned basic facilities need improving but this has not been carried out.”

    We would not consider this property again until this has been done. ...

    We would not consider this property again until this has been done. The sofa was very worn and each person was made to lean to the centre, due to wear. For a small amount, this could have been helped by using, a throw. The oil cloth on the kitchen table, had several holes in it, and was very worn,; again for a small sum, this could have been simply replaced . There was no fish slice, so to cook and serve a full English was more difficult than need be, as with other dishes. Only a palette knife was available for turning cooked food. Not what I expected!! Location was very good for visiting local towns and beaches. Mrs A Lane August 2021

The property

Surrounded by fields and woodlands, this converted barn provides cosy and comfortable accommodation near the market town of Bideford, North Devon.

An ideal retreat for a couple seeking peace and tranquillity.

Step into the open plan sitting area and admire the views across the countryside and towards the lakes and beyond through the large windows.

The open beams give a rustic feel to this comfortable area and the attractively furnished bedroom enjoys an en-suite.

Outside, the private patio is perfect for lazing on sunny days, sipping cool drinks and ideal for al fresco dining or join in with a barbecue evening in the large garden area which is shared with similar cottages on-site.

Being set on a working farm guests are welcome to be in thick of things at lambing time or pop down to one of the lakes for a spot of fishing, wildlife spotting or simply enjoy the canopy of stars unblemished by city lights.

The market town of Bideford is nearby and offers shops and quayside cafes or hop on a boat to the wildlife haven of Lundy Island or a coastline cruise.

The vast expanse of sandy beach at Westward Ho! makes a fabulous day out for sun-worshippers, toe dippers and surfers.

The beach has a high pebble ridge which separates it from Northam Burrows where golf lovers can play on the oldest links course in England and enjoy the views at the same time.

A trip to the old fishing village of Appledore or the cobbled streets of Clovelly are wonderful browsing days with winding streets and art galleries galore.

An experience of rural life, a perfect break to escape your busy routine.

About the location

For the more active, several major surfing beaches, golf courses, theme parks and other attractions are nearby and the South West coast path passes close by on its way into Cornwall. The beautiful cliff-top fishing village of Clovelly is half an hour by road, and the delights of Exmoor and Dartmoor can be reached in under an hour. Surf the waves, stroll through pretty villages, wander along the Tarka Trail, visit a famous garden or have some fun at one of the local theme or farm parks – it’s all on the doorstep.
