Absolutely beautiful apartment with everything you could wish for. The weather could have been better but it didn't stop us getting out and about walking miles along the beach and also the Tarka Trail. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we intend to return next year.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The barn was very nice and we had plenty of space for all 6 adults, the negatives first, (there's not many) the double bed in the master bedroom was very low and the wood surrounding the mattress made It difficult to get out in and out of, also even tho the master en-suite was nice and big the over the bath shower was difficult to use as it was at a weird angle and low even for me and I'm 5ft 7" but it was because of the apex roof, but I just used another shower in one of the other bedrooms, Now the positives!!! There is plenty of parking outside, the barn was always nice and warm and the underfloor heating is lovely especially when walking in bare feet in the mornings! There is 4 big bedrooms 2 doubles and 2 twin 1 twin is downstairs (this is the one which has no en-suite) the other 3 have en- suites, the barn was very nicely decorated and has more than enough of crockery, cookware and utensils, The owners (who live in the barn opposite) Trevor and Valerie were great, they were always helpful if and when needed, Valerie had left us everything for a fresh scone and cream tea! (This was a nice touch) just what you needed after a long drive! it was a shame about the weather as we would of loved to use the BBQ and the garden, we would love to return but in the summer, hope this information helps. As my wife and I would definitely recommend this property as a good Base to visit North Devon. only a 5 min walk to the lovely Berrynarbor village which has a nice pub, the location was great as we got a taxi to Ilfracombe (for £10) where there are fantastic restaurants (look on TripAdvisor) and within a 30 mins drive is the very picturesque Lynton and Lynmouth would recommend visiting "watersmeet " for some great walks and pictures, Woolacombe beach is massive!!!! No problem getting somewhere to sit in the summer, only downside is that there is not much else there well there wasn't in March, Barnstaple has alot more shops if you prefer the normal high street chains, also one last tip! The sat nav (Google maps) said that we had arrived but don't panic as the barn is about another 200 yards up the hill and is on the left after going under the small bridge, the roads within around a 1.5 mile radius are narrow with passing places, could be a pain if the roads get busy in the summer but it's worth it just for the views.
