Booked as a last minute week away. The Stables have been a place of rest, relaxation & restoration. The cottage is beautifully appointed and very well equipped. Many thoughtful touches (olive oil, herbs, homemade cake, delicious eggs to name a few). An ideal spot with a dog. We have enjoyed our walks in the meadow early morning and late at night...Toni and Nigel have been welcoming and attentive and always with a smile. Thank you, we'd love to come again!J &T, Cropwell Bishop, Notts - 2nd September 2016
A wonderful little apartment with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Impeccably clean and with a wealth of information on local activities. The complimentary eggs and drizzle cake on arrival were an added bonus. A great choice and a great stay.Ms Kat Hughes - 28th August 2016
A superb trip! Wonderful accommodation with great views. We stayed 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Yes, its quite isolated but the peace and rural setting was just what we wanted. Nigel and Toni are incredibly welcoming and we tucked into the delicious cake (left here for us by Toni). Would certainly love to visit again!K&A, Bath - 26th August 2016
Hartland holiday barns has to be the best self catering accommodation available. Value for money does not cover it ,Toni and Nigel are excellent hosts and lovely people who go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. The accommodation is spotless to a fault and is finished to the highest standard. I would reccomend Hartland holiday barns to anyone. I can not fault the accommodation in any way.Mr G Pike - 15th August 2016
We have stayed in all kinds of accommodation during our lives from 5* star hotels to tents. This has to be the very best self catering accommodation there is, the finish is exquisite and there is everything you could need if you are a cook. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Toni, Nigel, they are excellent hosts...G&C, Tamworth, Staffs - 10th August 2016
We have had a very nice week here at the Stables cottage, the views from the cottage are wonderful.Mr S, Oldham - 8th August 2016
We wanted somewhere dog friendly, high quality and located in North Devon so 'The Stable' ticked all the boxes. We were greeted with a warm welcome by Toni who gave us a quick run down of where everything was and then left us to explore. The beautiful accommodation and its surroundings. We loved the extra touches such as a lovely homemade case, eggs and strawberries! All from the farm and tasted scrumptious! There was nothing left unthought of and we are leaving feeling very relaxed having had a fantastic holiday. Thank you to Toni, Nigel, Nutty - hope to see you again soon.C&T, Chester, Cheshire - 16th July 2016
Had a wonderful stay. Cottage is lovely and has everything to make one comfortable. It is so central to all sorts of places. Visited Bideford, Barnstaple & Westward Ho! among others. Can recommend Hartland Abbey for its location. Tapeley Gardens for the walk to the monument - unbelievable views, trip to Lundy Island - if you enjoy walking and birdlife; of course Clovelly & Bude. I was made very welcome by Toni & Nigel and would definitely recommend the barns. Would stay again.Ms P, Bamfurlong, Wigan - 9th July 2016
We booked 'Stable' as we wanted somewhere dog friendly. We couldn't have found somewhere more dog friendly than here. Toni and Nigel are to be admired for what they achieved at Higher Huddisford. Its perfect. Lemon cake + eggs on arrival are a lovely touch. We will miss the noises of the geese, hens, ducks, pigs and we can't forget Nutty. We've really enjoyed our stay here and will book again for sure....We will definitely recommend the barns to all our friends. Thank you.K&K, Rotherham, South Yorkshire - 25th June 2016
Extremely well equipped and comfortable.Mr S Goad - 15th June 2016
A Google find so on element of luck brought us to the 'Stable'. Great weather for most of the week, blended well with the warm welcome from Toni and Nigel (and Nutty). Eggs and cake were a treat and we felt at home. The standard of accommodation is excellent and the furnishings top drawer. Good walks too from the door. We enjoyed the local area and 'Merry Harriers' garden centre is a great way of spending money on things you didn't know you needed. Fab holiday, our dog loved it too and we will tell others...Mr & Mrs G, nr Melton Mowbray - 11th June 2016
We booked last minute as a 'mini moon' having married on the 14th. Everything from the booking to the welcome at the gate, lemon cake and milk for tea, fresh eggs & flowers on arrival really has made this a mini break to remember. Toni & Nigel will do anything to ensure you feel welcome, relaxed and have everything you need. Even if you don't have a dog - Nutty will play catch with you!! Hope to visit again soon.Mr & Mrs P, Berkshire - 21st May 2016
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Thank you for being so welcoming and friendly. Your gift to us was very sweet and we were touched by the gesture. Thank you also for the eggs and very yummy cake. You have a wonderful place here and we hope to return one day.Mr & Mrs P - 21st May 2016
A big thank you - a piece of 'Devon Heaven'. You really have created an 'ideal' after all. Who amongst us would not like to wake every morning to the dawn chorus of native birds, the honking of the geese, the clucking of the hens, the quacking of the ducks and the gentle barking of Nutty!C&K, Willenhall - 2nd April 2016
We have had another fabulous week in lovely Devon staying in your beautifully renovated Stable this time. We wanted to say a big thank you for everything - wonderful welcome hamper (you can't beat the eggs or homemade chutney!), superbly equipped cottage, really just everything has been lovely....Even the blustery and wet weather has been a pleasure to walk in when blessed with such lovely scenery and a dog that can't get enough of the beaches here. We are already looking forward to our next visit here!E&A - 3rd January 2016
The accommodation was superb. Everything you could wish for had been provided. The eggs and cake on arrival was a lovely touch. Nigel and Toni have obviously worked extremely, and we wish them every success for the future.P&V, Torquay, S Devon - 19th October 2015
We both thought that the property was of a first class standard and was delighted with everything that we used during our stay.Mr John Sharpe-Hall - 9th October 2015
We have enjoyed the visit to our homeland and have been blessed by good weather and excellent accommodation - for which we thank you. We have appreciated the chance to relax after touring the continent and spending time in the Yorkshire Dales - which as a Yorkshire lass was a must see. Your comfortable stable was the ideal haven to rest up and rejuvenate, providing everything that we could possibly think of. Thank you for the 'yummy' cake and eggs - just the shot after a long journey. We will pass the word to friends at home.S&J, Adelaide, Australia - 2nd October 2015
Great place to visit beautiful property and scenery. Lots of places to visit so relaxing. Many thanks to Nigel and Toni for the fresh eggs and milk and lemon drizzle cake, we would definitely recommend you to our friends.M&D, Warrington, Cheshire - 12th September 2015
Lovely place to stay, everything we needed and more. Very impressed with the quality of the Stable, Nigel and Toni have worked very hard to achieve the high standard, it certainly gets our vote.

The holiday property was of the highest standard and every last detail had been thought of. It truly was the best value for money we have spent on a holiday let, even the booking fee and dog charge was great value 5* it really felt like home from homeMrs S Russell - 14th July 2015
Highly enjoyable week - great weather. Lovely location with rolling hills, peace and quiet integrating in the farming community. Cottage is immaculate, built to the highest standards of workmanship and a pleasure to stay in. Equipped with everything, including a field for our dog...brilliant! ...Convenient location for visiting Devon and Cornwall, only problem - it isn't mine.Mr & Mrs A, Warrington - 4th July 2015
We have had a really lovely two weeks exploring this beautiful corner of Devon. We went on some dramatic coastal walks, even if one day it was too foggy to see the sea! We found a lovely beach that took dogs at Sandy Mouth. We did our tourist bit and visited timeless Clovelly and we even cycled the forest tracks and Tarka Trail. We found some lovely pubs to eat at namely, The Bush, Old Smithy, The Bull and The Hoops Inn, to name a few. All in all a lovey holiday. Nigel and Toni were very welcoming always up for a chat....We found the accommodation spotless with everything we needed...So all we can say is thank you for a brilliant time.Mr & Mrs K, Oakwood, Derby - 27th June 2015
Thank you Toni and Nigel for such a lovely break, for the eggs, cakes, milk and your hospitality. We had sunshine, picnics, met old friends and then back to your wonderful cottage a real home from home.....such a lovely place and warm welcome.Mr & Mrs S, Chipping Norton, Oxon - 13th June 2015
Excellent. Stayed for 5 nights over Easter to explore the beautiful North Devon scenery. Absolutely loved it here from the minute we arrived. You want for nothing - and the many extra touches provided make it all the more impressive. Nigel and Toni are very welcoming and have clearly worked hard to provide fabulous accommodation. You must sit on the bench at the bottom of the field (with optional wine and picnic!) and watch the sunset. Beautiful. Certainly will recommend and return.H & K, Sussex - 9th April 2015
A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! You had thought of everything, even for the dog and we particularly enjoyed the treats you left for us! We loved the cottage, it was very modern and clean and would certainly love to return here. Thank you for your excellent hospitality!H & W, Bedford - 16th March 2015

Wonderful accommodation - every aspect of our stay had been carefully though out - better than home as no clutter! Thanks very much.Mr J - 13th September 2014
I have had a fantastic week here. The stable is just brilliant and is equipped to a very high standard which has made things very relaxing and comfortable. The position of The Stables gives a really lovely view outside, particularly at sunset.Mr L - 30th August 2014
We have had a great week surfing and exploring the coastline in a part of Devon that neither of us knew very well. The cottage is fantastic and has provided everything we could possibly have needed - easily the best-quipped cottage we have ever stayed in. The eco-friendly and sustainable features are a great bonus and the whole week has been made all the better by being able to come back each night to a great place! Thank you for making this place so special- we will be thoroughly recommending it to others, and hope to be back in the future.Mrs G Barnett - 23rd August 2014
We have had a great time, lots to do with very little travelling involved. We explored much of the coastline and enjoyed many stunning views. The Stable offered everything we could ask for and the owners were fantastic, always happy to help. We look forward to see house this place develops in the future.Mr J Goode - 10th August 2014
We have had a wonderful break here, exploring the coastline. Lots of dog friendly places.
