  • “This was our first experience with Sykes Holiday Cottages and we can say hand on our heart what a splendid week we had at Barn Court Cottage.”

    We were met with a warm welcome by Hugh, Pam and Pippa and the best Lemon drizzle cake ever, which was really most welcome with a cuppa after our travels. ...

    We were met with a warm welcome by Hugh, Pam and Pippa and the best Lemon drizzle cake ever, which was really most welcome with a cuppa after our travels. This great cottage is located in a valley which we found to be nice and peaceful a great place to unwind and relax or as we also found the location is spot on just off the M5 also for exploring north to Exmoor and South to Exeter and Exmouth for the beach. We had the time to use Barn Court Cottage as a 7 night stop-over to break our long trip, nothing was too much trouble for Hugh, Pam and Pippa giving us some really helpful local knowledge of some great pub meals to boot. We would recommend Barn Court Cottage to all, it has all the amenities you need a really clean and cosy cottage if you have a need to get away from it all, but again not too far off the beaten track, we give it 10/10 on our score board, we did enjoy going through the Ford twice a day (I know little things for little minds) but things like this make your holiday don't they. Barn Court Cottage did all of this for us and more, with nice people as well. All too soon we had to pack and leave to continue our journey, would we go back again....................you bet we will.

Whether you are bringing along the family or travelling with friends, Barn Court Cottage promises guests a relaxing getaway, a retreat wrapped in charm and tradition, to make your holiday that much more memorable.

Enter inside past the lovely gravelled grounds, plants and trees where you will be intrigued by the unique country cottage kitchen, and characterful living room with its electric stove located in the corner.

A scenic view towards the Devon countryside can be appreciated any time of the day.

Upstairs, two bedrooms await, the first is presented as a double, whilst the second hosts a twin set-up, both are tied together with necessary furniture, and overlooked by Velux windows for a light, airy effect.

Lastly, an all-white bathroom accompanies the interior, showcasing an overhead shower and vanity unit which compliments the formation in a contemporary fashion.

About the location


Exmoor National Park 12 miles; Exeter 15 miles; Saunton Sands 28 miles

Tiverton is set on the banks of the Great Western Canal in central mid Devon.

A town rich with history and heritage with a thriving town centre hosting a popular farmers market every third Wednesday.

Visit Tiverton Castle a royal fortress commissioned in 1106, or enjoy walks along the tow path of the Grand Western Canal, originally built to transport lime and where today you can take a trip on one of the iconic horse drawn barges, a perfect way to discover the beauty and wildlife along the canal.

For those who enjoy cycling the the canal provides an easy 8-mile cycle ride between Tiverton and the Somerset border, ideal for all ages.

Explore the rolling hills and moorland of Exmoor National Park, just a short distance away and perfect for exploring on two wheels.

National Trust Knightshayes is worthy of a visit, particularly the walled garden and has some wonderful walks within the grounds.

The north Devon coast is within an hours drive, and for some retail therapy the Cathedral city of Exeter is with a half hour drive..
