Really enjoyed our stay at the barn. The barn was beautiful and as decribed Water piping hot and wifi great . Our grandchildren loved making dens and taking Winnie the dog for a walk. Cathrine and Pete were very friendly and helpful. We would reccomend this accomodation for a relaxing holiday.

This Barn conversion is a wonderful place to stay. The place is super clean and although there was 4 of us, we all felt like we had our own space in the open plan living accommodation. Waking up to the birds singing and the stream flowing was just what we needed for a much enjoyed Easter break. Katherine was more than helpful and accommodating. I enjoyed our chats and thanks to James for pointing out the deer that came to visit. We have super days out in Croyde, Appledore and Barnstaple. The kids loved Winnie the dog and of course the excellent wi-fi broadband which was better than at home ! Thanks to you both and congratulations on creating such a wonderful place to stay. Best regards, The Raine Family - Preston.

An amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful barn in the most beautiful place! When we arrived at Ford Farm, the barn was spotless and a welcome pack containing local food and delicious fresh eggs was left in the kitchen! All of the description was accurate, and the barn excelled our expectations! The wonderful owners Katherine And James were more than helpful, Katherine allowed my daughters to hold some goslings which were very cute and a lovely experience! Outside of the barn is a field that we saw deer in, which just made the holiday more memorable.

Bedroom-wise, the three bedrooms are excellently sized and have luxury bedding and soft furnishings. The family bathroom has a free-standing bath, which is just amazing and the tiles are stunning. And in the ensuite, the shower is a rainforest shower, which is such a treat!

All in all, a wonderful and memorable stay, and we will be coming back again!

(For all you clean fanatics, my daughter is extremely conscious of cleanliness, and for her, the house was a welcome break from worrying about hygiene on holiday!)

Thoroughly recommended!
