Property code: DAIRC

Escape to the countryside with a stay in this gorgeous converted barn. It’s overflowing with character due to the charming original features that have been retained throughout such as vaulted ceilings and exposed wooden beams. This holiday home is located in the peaceful and tranquil North Devon countryside and is sure to provide a warm and welcoming place for relaxing holidays in the South West.

The pretty decor inside the cottage creates an ambience perfect for unwinding during your break. Snuggle up by the wood burner in the lounge/diner for cosy evenings. There’s plenty of space for four with the open-plan kitchen/dining area, providing a lovely place for downtime, while two nicely decorated bedrooms, a double and twin, both embrace their rustic charm with wooden furnishings and countryside views. Outside you’ll find a delightful patio and garden, and guests are welcome to explore the grounds which are shared with the complex of properties. You can truly embrace the calm of the countryside by settling down to lunch at the picnic bench and watching ducks bathe in the pond.

You’ll be only 2 miles from the nearest pub and shop, and the delightful market town of Holsworthy is 6 miles away - great for picking up local produce. The beautiful coastal town of Bude is 15 miles away; ideal for a day trip as this town hosts many great attractions such as a sandy beach which is great for surfing, swimming, and a lovely place for a dip in the tidal pool. For more fun days out head to The BIG Sheep farm-themed amusement park (15 miles), RHS Rosemoor (11 miles), Tamar Lakes (10 miles) and The Milky Way Adventure Park (14 miles).

I cant recommend this cottage highly enough! Cleanliness and comfort perfect. The cottage has so much character. The bedroom furniture is sheer luxury, I felt like a queen in that bed, which was extremely comfortable too.

A beautiful cottage on beautiful grounds. Great for those with dogs. There's a field you can take them to and just let them run free. Nice location to reach different parts of Devon / Cornwall. Clean and easy entrance / exit. Would recommend

The cottage was very well equipped- everything we wanted and needed when cooking meals (even a sieve to drain the pasta!) and a cafetire. The furniture is comfortable and the bed is perfect! There is a washing machine and a dishwasher (although we didnt use it) and lovely toiletries left for us and the dog as well.
