“A hidden gem”
Reviewed November 11, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The cottage is cosy, well kept and has a stunning garden, which really makes all the difference. Francisco is an old fashioned gentleman and perfect host. You can get bread delivered in the morning, which makes life so much easier. The place can't be improved upon.

“Ideal for a getaway from the world”
Reviewed November 4, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Small cottage up on the mountainside, within a large riding school estate on which you are essentially alone. Cozy cottage with all modern amenities; ideal for a week away from the world or a romantic vacation. The owners are immensely kind and helpful, and know just about everything you need to know about Madeira. We had a perfect time and hope to return.

“Tranquil,rural, delightful setting”
Reviewed May 26, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Up in the hills, cooler than below, a house ideal for 2 seeking a peaceful, rustic setting in well maintained surroundings. Clean, tidy well equipped, good value accommodation. Looked after by a gentleman of Madeira.

“A peaceful, comfortable retreat.”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Haybarn cottage is a lovely quiet little house in the grounds of a riding school. It is not overlooked and from upstairs you look out over the sea. The garden is enclosed by hedges of flowers and gets the sun all day until mid evening. The cottage is very well equipped, with everything you could need. The trip from the airport to the house was interesting, very narrow with hairpin bends up the side of the mountain. Not for the faint-hearted. The local supermarket has the most fantastic cheap fish and fruit. Lovely sea-bass. We explored all over the island, swam in the lava pools, walked along lavardas and ate in some lovely restaurants. The only downside was in April sometimes the cloud level is low and although the coast was sunny, the higher up the mountain you went the more misty it became. We will definately be going again, but maybe in May.

“Idyllic cottage in a truly beautiful location”

person found this review helpful

Wonderful week spent at Haybarn Cottage. Immaculate accommodation and so peaceful. Francisco and Clara were most welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. On our first day there, Clara showed us where the local supermarket, restaurants, bakery and chemist were. We were also welcomed with a lovely basket of fruit and chocolate! Absolutely would recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a haven of peace and sunshine on the beautiful island of Madeira!

“You and the horses!”
Reviewed April 6, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Tranquillity itself. Perfect holiday cottage with the horses for company. This cottage is fully equipped with everything you could need. Francisco and Clara could not do more for us, having fresh bread delivered every day for breakfast was excellent.

“Paradise found in the hills of Madeira”
Reviewed March 31, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

We had the perfect holiday when we stayed at Haybarn Cottage, a house that was our home for the two glorious weeks we spent in Madeira. The owner, Francisco, and staff were very attentive and helpful and they did all they could to make our stay as comfortable and wonderful as possible. The cottage itself has been lovingly decorated with all the amenities you would expect. It was, for us, a place we looked forward to returning to after a busy day exploring the island. In fact, we didn't want to leave! My husband enjoyed a wonderful horse-riding lesson while we were there and our daughter, who was almost one at the time, enjoyed looking at the horses, sheep and chickens, as well as exploring the well-kept garden. The island itself is amazing - a great place to explore with a small child.
