Riki and Martin were very welcoming and also informative. Moreover, they were on hand to answer any questions or provide anything extra we might need. The area itself was beautiful and the barns immediate surroundings are very peaceful and quiet which is great when coming back from a day out and you can just relax. There are also lots of local places to visit bude, clovelly, welcombe mouth and hartland quay to name a few. Definitely worth a visit!

It is beautifully presented to a high standard, with a well equipped kitchen. The views from the property are stunning. The owners made us very welcome providing a cot and stair gates which was much needed with our climbing 1 year old! Also when we had a query about the heating it was sorted immediately. We would definitely recommend!
