Charming well appointed comfortable cottage.

5 of 5
Good communications with the owner as we had to alter our dates. The cottage was clean and tidy and well furnished and appointed with everything needed for an enjoyable stay. The village is also charming with a pub on the square which did delicious meals, however we recommend booking your table as we were disappointed on a couple of evenings. We would recommend this cottage to our friends and family.

Delightful barn in a picturesque and peaceful location

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Meadow Barn. The barn is one of the best we've stayed in and is fitted out to a very high standard. The children really enjoyed playing table tennis in the adjacent barn and the Playstation in the playroom was also a hit! Jackie, the owner was very friendly and helpful and we must compliment her on the lemon drizzle cake which we were presented with on arrival. Would recommend this barn to anyone planning a family holiday in North Devon.
