Alex and Anne are the perfect hosts. The large grounds offered our 2 children the opportunity to explore and run off their excessive energy, whilst we enjoyed a relaxing drink in the pleasant surroundings. Only a couple of minutes walk to the village shop for any essentials. Ten minutes walk to the Malt Scoop for a splendid mix of excellent food, local beers and friendly conversation. Lapford is located equal distance from the north and south Devon coasts which is ideal for chasing the sun and getting out and about. This was our second visit to the cottage. We all absolutely love the time we have spent here and will definitely be looking for an opportunity to visit again.

Very welcoming and answered any questions that we had. Had a minor issue with the hot water but that got resolved very quickly. The barn has been very well converted to a high standard. The kitchen is well stocked and the lounge very comfortable. The bedrooms and beds are also comfy. The barn is in a quiet but beautiful part of Devon with Bude a 25 min drive away. If its quiet and relaxing your after then this is the place
