We were a group of friends traveling through southwestern England and this cottage was our last stop in North Devon for 3 days. It was not long enough. We loved the cozy kitchen and the fireplace lounge. The old stone interior walls and beams added so much charm to the cottage. The bedrooms were comfortable and nicely decorated. Having a downstairs bedroom and bathroom worked well for any with mobility issues.
Our host Richard was accommodating and available for our questions before and after booking. The welcome basket was a very nice touch. We wish we could have stayed longer to just relax and enjoy the house and surrounding area. We especially liked the Black Venus Inn for dinner. Watersmeet, Lynton and the Tarr Steps were our favorite destinations. Driving through the moor on the way south through Exmoor National Park was beautiful and we saw so many wild ponies and of course sheep. Barnfield Cottage is perfect for a North Devon holiday.
Our family of eleven spent a week at Barnfield cottage to celebrate a 70th birthday.
We all had a wonderful time with plenty of room for everyone and every need taken care of including a beautiful cake awaiting our arrival! We all felt at home immediately and were made to feel really welcome.
We had many board game nights (games were provided for us) and plenty of fun and laughter.
Every room was clean and welcoming and so thoughtfully equipped.
Many many thanks to Rick and wife for the care that was taken for us.
Communication during the whole process of booking and leaving was faultless.
Every year I book a cottage for a week with my grandchildren in as varied locations as possible.
Finding a cottage for 6 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs is a challenge. We struck gold with this charming cottage which is full of character and felt warm and comfortable as soon as we stepped in the door. It suited us very well, with lots of space, good location, beaches and many local attractions only a short drive away. We had all that we needed for a relaxing holiday. We all made good use of the comfortable games room in the evenings after days on the beach. Best cottage we have ever been to and top of our list for a return visit. Recommend you visit the "Big Sheep" for a fun day out.
