“A fantastic home from home,”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from a week at Northcott Barton and feel completely relaxed and chilled due to having such a wonderful time. The cottage is a true home from home and we could not find fault with any aspect of the cottage. A warm welcome on arrival along with a few words about the surroundings as it is a working farm. We were worried that our two teenagers would get bored due to the isolated location, but when they met the two dogs 3 cats 4 chickens and 3 horses plus the herd of cows they were blown away. Tess & Tink (collies) working dogs virtually become part of your family, so friendly they were a pleasure and good company for the two girls. The cottage is no more than 10 miles from Barnstable , also the North Devon coast is easily accessible. You get to collect fresh eggs from the chickens daily, plus you can arrange a quad bike tour of the farm with Rachel, if your looking for peace and quite with 4/5 star accommodation and enjoy the country side this is the place for you. We have booked next year already.

“Peace and quiet on the farm”

Just returned from our family holiday at Northcott Barton. The cottage was lovely and even though it is attached to the farm house it is so peaceful it makes for a relaxing break. Rachael and her family make you feel at home and if you wish to explore the farm and surrounding area you are more than welcome. Arrived home totally chilled out and ready to rejoin the ratrace.

“Lovely Location”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed for a week in early July 2015 & would recommend to anyone. Clean, tidy with everything you could need during your stay.

This old three bedroomed farm cottage it the perfect holiday location, far away from the built up areas for it to be so peaceful but close enough that you won't be travelling all the time to get anywhere. Although with the North Devon roads you never get anywhere quickly anyway.

Also, every morning and evening the two farm border collies came to play ball with us which was an added bonus.

“Beyond our expectations, wonderful cottage and well equiped, beautiful setting, very welcoming”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our family was a mixed age group including 2 grandchildren (age 4 and 1) we had a wonderful time and the children loved feeding the animals. Sandra and Robert were so welcoming and everything was provided for our comfort and convenience. The beds were very comfortable and everything was of high quality and extremely clean. The setting was beautiful and peaceful. We cannot speak highly enough of this property and of the owners. We would strongly recommend it and would love to return one day. Sandra and Robert obviously love their property and have made every effort to share that feeling with their visitors. Some holiday properties feel unlived in but here it felt cosy and full of character. We had an amazing holiday!!!

“5 STAR ACCOMMODATION IN 5 STAR SURROUNDINGS”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My wife, our 2 children (18 months & 6 years), Father & Mother-in-law returned from our week stay just over a week ago and i can honestly say its one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had......despite attempts from hurricane Bertha to ruin it!

The accommodation is of an exceptionally high standard and perfectly in keeping with the house and surroundings. It is equipped with a full variety of appliances to make the stay that much easier and all of a very high quality...including WiFi.

My eldest son (whom has Autism) enjoyed the opportunity to feed the various animals (sheep, chickens & cows) it certainly was a highlight of the holiday seeing him get so much from it.

The owners Sandra & Robert are so friendly and could not do enough for us, both prior to arrival, with all our questions and during our stay.

The surrounding area and countryside is beautiful, we went on many day trips to the coast and surrounding places, each as beautiful as the next.

We would certainly return again next year and have no hesitation recommending this accommodation to anyone.

“The most wonderful and relaxing holiday imaginable”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

We have visited the farm every year for the past ten years and, without fail, Sandra and Robert have been the most wonderful, kind hosts who always seem to have time to chat with us and make us feel at home. That said, they are never intrusive and completely appreciate their guests' privacy. The farm is located in the most tranquil, picturesque setting, and the cottage has always been extremely comfortable and beautifully clean. Visiting Northcott Barton has been the highlight of our year every time we have been there and our daughters have never tired of it. They always love helping Sandra and Robert with the animals - sheep, calves, hens, and we have all enjoyed exploring the farm and local countryside, which is absolutely lovely. There is plenty to do in the area; both Exmoor and Dartmoor are within easy reach and the beautiful North Devon beaches are not far away.

“Beautiful setting and a warm welcome.”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2013

A very comfortable and clean farmhouse in a tranquil setting away from any road noise. We took our 2 children and our family dog and have visited several years in a row. We love returning each year to see Sandra and Robert, who are so friendly. The children love helping around the farm each morning, they have fed sheep and cows, lambs and calves, some with bottles, fed chickens, collected eggs, seen chicks hatch, helped herd cows and sheep, weighed out different types of grain, looked at the tractors and stroked the cats and sheep dog, who also rounds up cattle. They are always excited to see what animals are in the farmyard when we arrive. We have all walked in the fields and the woods and had meals in the lovely garden. Tourist advice is readily available, though due to the tranquil setting, you do need a car to visit attractions. The house is lovely, has everything you could need and very comfortable beds! There are 2 upstairs bedrooms and 1 downstairs, there is also a bathroom downstairs as well as upstairs. The views of the garden and fields are lovely and the only sounds are of the animals. We can't wait to return in 2014.
