“A perfect home from home, comfortable and relaxing accommodation”

Peter and Jackie have a gorgeous property, and my family of 4, two adults and two children, loved every minute of our stay with them,

Barley Meadow had everything we needed from a holiday accommodation. From the moment we made our initial enquiry, the communication from Peter and Jackie was very prompt, providing us with all the information we needed to get to the lovely rural setting farm cottage. The owners were there to greet us, gave us useful information on the cottage, and a great touch was the provision of cooked breakfast ingredients so that we didn't have to immediately rush out to a shop. Even though their home is attached to the cottage, we felt the property was very private, with an enclosed garden overlooking their fields and further afield to the moors.

The cottage is clean and homely. It has a good sized kitchen holding all major white goods, and most cooking utensils/pots and crockery that you would use at home. Great sized living room, separate dining room, bathroom and bedrooms provided the cottage with a spacious feel.

Peter and Jackie have provided a great handbook with pubs and restaurants from around the area, and gave us some helpful hints on nearby walks. They are on hand if needed, yet respected our privacy.

It was lovely to watch their horses in the attached field and my daughter loved having Freda the turkey to fuss over in the garden. Peter gave us a great hint to use the child gate on the kitchen door so we could enjoy the warm weekend but without having the chickens wandering in.

We had a lovely short break with Peter and Jackie and only regret we didn't have more time there. If you're looking at the reviews to decide whether to go ahead with a booking, please don't hesitate, just book it. Many thanks to you both Peter and Jackie. One of the best equipped and comfortable cottages we have stayed in!!

We have just had three lovely days at Barley Meadow Cottage. So peaceful , great place to unwind. The cottage is spacious and very comfortable and well equipped. The owners had stocked the fridge and cupboard with ample essentials for a couple of days . This was such a nice touch. Great place to stay. Thanks to Peter and Jackie for everything. We will definitely be back.

The location of the farm was the main reason for visiting this part of Devon. It is 30mins from Bude, 30mins from Exeter and 5mins from Dartmoor.
Peter and Jackie were lovely hosts who couldn't do enough for me and the kids.

“Probably the best we have stayed in”

We arrived and were almost instantly blown away as we looked upon a beautiful enclosed garden surrounded by sheep, horses and hens. Upon entering, the surprises continued. The house was large, spacious, clean and incredibly equipped. Not once did we look for something and not find it. In fact its probably better equipped than my own home even the kitchen cupboards and fridge were stocked up. The owners were very friendly, welcoming, helpful, delightful people. We took our teenage daughter and her puppy with us. The puppy made friends with the resident Turkey. They spent many an hour gazing through the full length glass doors at one another, while my daughter greatly appreciated the Wifi. We had a fantastic week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful home on a lovely smallholding.

We spent a wonderful weekend at Barley Meadow cottage. When we arrived we had all the basics and more to save us going to the shops, which were not within walking distance which was a god send! The kitchen was well equipped and all the rooms very spacious. The beds were very comfortable with lovely fluffy towels are provided. Our hosts even provided a BBQ & coals to have a lovely evening in. The out look is beautiful along with sheep, horses, chickens and a 'pet' turkey! Would definitely recommend this as a great venue to get about.

“BEST HOLIDAY COTTAGE IN DARTMOOR”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Looking for somewhere to stay with our 2 spaniels can be a challenge. Arrive in Pete,s and Jackie's driveway and your breath is taken by the view. Your are then greeted with the cottage that has its own private garden and patio with furniture and views. Walk into the front door and you will be in an idyllic size kitchen with a breakfast table. Once Jackie and Pete have told you she has left a few bits in the fridge and cupboard for you (which I might say is enough to eat and drink for weeks) you are led to a large dining room boasting the views. From there you move into the massive living room. Enough to seat 10 people. With games, tv and 3 very comfortable sofas to stretch out on after a day of sightseeing.
We only stayed in the master bedroom, if it is anything to go buy for comfort, the rest of the rooms look lovely and I am sure will be as comfortable. Bathroom is family size, shower is powerful and hot. All you need. A downstairs toilet for the finishing touch being everything you defiantly need. If you want somewhere to stay, good views, friendliest, most helpful couple to look after you as well as a beautiful well equipped cottage to stay in, this is a must. We will be back in a heart beat.
Thank you for you considerable kind hospitality.
