Lovely cottage with stunning views from the lounge window. Our young children loved the grassy hill outside and saying hello to the sheep every morning. Good location, 20 minutes from Westward Ho which I believe is the nearest beach. Felt very private. We were warned about slow internet but really didnt find it that bad.

We have been visiting Salterns Barn for over four years, this was our 13th visit and 3rd this year. It is our Devon home from home. The barn is in a unique location and extremely well equipped. Looking forward to our next stay.

Salterns Barn is a fabulous thoughtfully laid-out property in a quiet and peaceful location with lovely views and was the perfect venue to celebrate a special event with our family. The barn is well equipped and the luxury of 3 bathrooms for our party of 6 adults and a toddler meant each couple could have their own space and privacy.

Location is perfect for visiting North Devon area. Very peaceful. Superbly equipped kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. Phone signal in area is poor and wifi very slow which doesn't help when you are googling places/restaurants to visit. Only one bedroom had a hairdryer so if you are part of a large group you'd have to bring one with you

We had a great holiday at Salterns Barn. The barn itself is beautiful and was ideal for us. It's well equipped and we all enjoyed the very comfortable beds. Lots of good walks in the area. We particularly enjoyed a walk from the door right through the village and pausing at the Cyder Press pub for coffee and goodies.
