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 was everything we expected and more. Warm, cosy, incredibly clean and tidy. Great central location, good little shop at local garage 200 metres away and good pub in short walking distance - uphill there so downhill back! Fab to walk our dogs in safety in grounds early morning and evening and Alex and Annie warm and friendly hosts. The Internet was absolutely fine on our phones but my old laptop wouldn't connect so just be aware. Alex did say he has plans to improve the signal to the cottage. Not that we wanted it but I think there was only one tv Chanel. We rarely go to the same location twice but we would certainly consider visiting Lapford Mill again if Alex and Annie will have us! A big thank you to them.

We stayed in a lot lounging on the comfortable sofas and watching tv. When we did go out and enjoy Ilfracombe it was nice to return to a warm and relaxing base. Really hoping to stay here again in the future as it was pefect for a family of four (2 adults and 2 thirteen year old boys).
