Interaction with guests
I like to be around to introduce you to The Leisure Barn and show you how things work. I'm always close at hand and will help were ever possible but I go out of my way not to be intrusive. I want you to feel the space is yours during your stay. I will hopefully be able to suggest places to visit while you're here depending on your interests.

About the neighborhood
Just 1 mile from the village of Woolfardisworthy, renown for it's pub, The Farmers Arms, and also boasting a great shop & chippy.The Leisure Barn sits just a couple of miles inland from the Atlantic Highway giving you access to many of North Devon's sandy beaches and fishing harbours. Great walking along the coastal path that can be picked up at any point and never too far from moorland sites too as both Exmoor and Dartmoor are just a 45 minute drive away.
