Lovely cottage in a peaceful location - comfortable, clean and well appointed. Bliss sitting on the patio with the only sound being bird song. Thank you Martin for the thoughtful touches (milk, wine, chocolates and homemade scones & jam with clotted cream). Lots of information in the cottage on things to do and places to visit for both adults and... More

as the place was so lovely even though the weather wasn't terribly good. Barley Cottage was well fitted out, even down to champage flutes. Very sympathetic owners for someone staying with younger dogs! Beautifully quiet location and if you visit with a dog, Westward Ho beach is definitely recommended. Following a storm, we managed to get all clothes/dogs dried with... More

We had a wonderful time staying in Barley Cottage. Martin attends to every little detail, milk, tea, scones, cream, jam, wine and chocolates. He also remembers useful little extras, eg a weekly T.V. guide. The cottage is spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need. Martin even supplies food for the bird feeders and the birds are feeding all day... More

Shipload Cottage was lovely to stay in, brilliantly well equipped, having everything we needed. Communication before hand was brilliant, and Martin was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area, and things to do with the children. A wonderful place to be based for a holiday, close enough to the main road, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.... More

Excellent stay, even though the weather wasn't great. The cottage didn't lack anything, Martin maintains the cottages in immaculate condition. Very peaceful and quiet, good as a base for walking and for driving to the many great locations in North Devon. The Rectory Farm tea house was a great find.
