We had a wonderfully comfortable stay at Pows Barn. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, thoughtfully presented and located in a very peaceful setting but with easy access to Barnstaple approx 15-20mins drive away. There is a private outdoor seating area although we didn't get chance to make use of this during our stay due to weather. Emma & AdaRead morem were friendly and helpful, and we would highly recommend Pows Barn if youre looking for a cosy place to stay in North Devon. Hide
