Just returned from our second visit to The Byre. Such an lovely place to stay the holiday passed far too quickly.
We took bikes and cycled to Tiverton along the canal, which was a long but easy ride.
We also took kayaks and paddled on the canal which is beautifully clean and peaceful, so very relaxing (permits were purchased from the village shop/post office)
We had a day trip to Cheddar Gorge which was an easy drive from the cottage, and we did the National Trust Circular Walk (free)
We started and finished the day with a relaxing dip in the hot tub, whilst watching the sheep/cows/rolling hills/sunset/stars.
The dogs loved playing in the garden which is well enclosed to all except small dogs who can fit through sheep fencing!
Tim discreetly checked the chemical levels on the tub early each morning. He also welcomed us with local cider, apple juice and cake which were there for our arrival.
I'd recommend this property to animal loving families who are looking for a quiet, relaxing, rural holiday.
I'll certainly be returning.
We loved the peaceful and remote feeling at the Byre. Although everything is a short drive away the countryside location makes you feel relaxed straight away. The view from the hot tub is superb and really welcome after a day of walking the nearby canal or visiting local attractions. We also enjoyed spending time at The Byre....everything you need is provided and our children had a great time. Everything was clean and there were so many extras , including the Wii ,which made for a brilliant stay. Thanks to Tim for all his help and great communication. We recommend this property and would love to return.
This was the first time we stayed at the Byre. The location is good for major routes but the Byre itself is set in a really peaceful setting with a hot tub overlooking miles of rolling fields and hills. We were very comfortable here and enjoyed walking by and also fishing on the canal, which is only about 200 metres down the hill from the property. Really relaxing place to stay and the owner Tim was very helpful. thank you.
This is the second time we have stayed at The Byre and are booked in again for November this year. The Byre is in a wonderful location and furnished to a very high standard. It is fully equipped with everything you need and more!! The view from the hot tub is breath-taking, nothing but fields and animals. So quiet and relaxing. It certainly ticked all our boxes for a relaxing weekend away. Looking forward to returning in November and lighting the fire!!
Lovely stay at The Byre, house is very well equipped, decorated to a high standard, location is great with plenty to do. Hot tub was a real added bonus loved by us all and what views! I am sure we will be back in the future
