Walkers and cyclists can enjoy the Tarka Trail and walk through the surrounding landscape, stunning in any season. The regional towns of Barnstaple and South Molton are nearby with popular pannier markets. In the height of Summer, a small eco-campsite pops up in one of the fields and cream teas are served from the summer house.

This is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in. It is a stunning cottage, very comfortable and stylish...and they allow dogs! The cottage is very well located for the coast and surrounding countryside , there is a community shop under a mile away, and the owners are very helpful and friendly, we would really strongly recommend it.

The cider barn is a lovely modern converted building. No expense has been spared with regards to furnishing & equipment with everything being of a high standard. It was also really warm with no need for much heating or the fire even though it was November. They also left us a blanket for each dog to use & a bowl each which was a lovely touch too. IRead moret is a bit off the beaten track but that made no difference to us. Hide

The cottage was outstanding on cleanliness and fully equipped with everything you would need for a perfect break. The location was perfect as the beaches and places to eat were reasonably close to the location which meant that our dogs could get worn out on the beach and then join us for food as most of the pubs and restaurants were dog friendly. WRead moree would fully recommend the cottage to family and friends. Hide

The Cider Barn has been so well designed and so tastefully dressed. It has a lovely feel about it and is in a beautiful peaceful location. The ideal place to stay and relax or to use as a base to see the sites of North Devon. Run by two lovely ladies with the holiday maker in mind, every need has been thought about. We loved it.

Overall this is an excellent tasteful conversion with modern facilities & comfortable for 4 adults p,us dog friendly. The location is wonderful, roughly 20 miles to the fabulous beaches (our favourite, Westward Ho!) - there is a campsite behind and there are a couple of other delightful properties surrounding including one attached to the Cider BarRead moren - there is also a cattery nearby - none of these bothered us.
