Our stay at The Granary during the month of September.

5 of 5
What a fantastic property. You need not look any further for that stay in beautiful North Devon. Outside, the surrounding were stunning. The views were spectacular. As we walked around the property when we first arrived we just kept hearing WOW - the property was superb. You will not want for anything. Every detail has been thought of whether you want to go fishing, have a picnic or a BBQ for dinner. All amenities within the property made us feel at home. Plenty to do and see around the local area will be sure to fill your time. Instructions from the owners on how to get to the property were really clear and easy to follow and they were really easy to contact and responded quickly. I would strongly recommend this property. It has probably been the best property we have stayed at so far. Will definitely look at booking this property again when we are next in the area. Absolutely loved it!!

Ideal accommodation for taking the Cockers away for the week in North Devon. Lovely cabin set under a canopy of trees at the end of a farm road. (Tarmac). Totally enclosed garden with a gate next to fields which are also dog friendly. Thanks Matt & Pru. We will be back next year.
