Nestling within a small courtyard of three private properties this barn conversion, furnished to a high standard, with magnificent views over open fields, is situated on the outskirts of the pretty village of Littleham.

Located in a lovely setting surrounded by acres of fields yet only a short drive from the "The Little White Town" of Bideford. The spectacular rugged North Devon coastline is within 3 miles, with cliff-top walks along the South West Coast Path and the vast sandy beaches of Westward Ho! and Saunton Sands. Picturesque Appledore and Instow are close by, and the nearby village of Buckland Brewer has a traditional butcher and pub. Atlantic Village shopping centre is also within a couple of miles. Local attractions include RHS Rosemoor, Dartington Crystal, the Tarka Trail, Tapeley Park, The Big Sheep, Hartland Abbey, Clovelly fishing village and day trips to Lundy Island.

Bathroom: Jack & Jill style, bath with hand-held shower, separate shower and WC. Lounge: with woodburner (first basket of logs included), 40” Freeview TV, DVD and French doors to the decked area. Kitchen/diner: large open-plan area with electric cooker with hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. Outside: private enclosed large rear garden, accessed via steps or slope down from the decked area, with lovely countryside views. Secure covered cycle storage. Amenities: ample off-road parking.

We were greeted on arrival with a beautiful jug of daffodils on the kitchen table, a host of Easter treats and colouring activities for our daughter - a lovely welcome. The barn is extremely clean and comfortable and the views out the back are just stunning! The owners are so warm and went out of their way to make us feel at home with little treatsRead more on the bed. The barn is very well equipped and in a fantastic location for beaches and a host of exciting day trips. We'll definitely be back! Hide

A very well equipped and conveniently located cottage for a weeks holiday in North Devon. Located just outside Bideford in a quiet location, just a couple of miles from the nearest shops, we found the cottage to be very comfortable and warm (we were there in December) and we wanted for nothing. We would thoroughly recommend it.

We have stayed at Buttercup Barn 3 times now and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit. The barn is a real home from home and the many personal touches make the holiday extra special. Our two young boys love it here! We were welcomed for our half term break with some Halloween crafts and biscuits for the boys to enjoy - it is these little extras whichRead more are unexpected but very much appreciated. We look forward to returning again soon. Hide

I can honestly say this is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Very spacious, very clean and everything you could need in a home from home, topped off by the fantastic garden. Unfortunately the weather could have been a bit better but we managed to get out and about and had a fantastic cottage to come back to.

A beautiful cottage with all the amenities you could want. Very convenient for the Atlantic Village with Asda, M&S, Gap and many more stores. Morrison's was in Bideford and many shops in Barnstable. Lots of gardens to visit with Marwood Hill especially worth the time and the roses at Rosemoor (RHS) A visit to Appledore and Instow is worth the time,Read more especially the coastal path from Instow to Bideford. A special treat was a Devon cream tea at Mad Henry's on the road from Bideford to Torrington Hide

This cottage was very well equipped with all you need to enjoy your holiday, lots of attention has been made to make your stay cosy and feels like a home, not a holiday let that has no personal touches. Nice to sit on the decking and look at the views of the countryside whilst taking a glass of refreshment.

Buttercup Barrn was very well appointed, very clean and frnished to a high standard.The bedrooms were a good size, the kitchen and longe felt spacious. We had a good time in spite of the weather, the views over the garden and the fields beyond were good. It was important for us to have all the accomodation on the ground floor.
