“A really beautiful place with stunning views.”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent 5 days here as an extended family of 6 with 3 dogs. What can we say the place was just fantastic. We have spent many times away and this place had it all. Really tastefully done, comfortable, practical and most of all it had character. What could top that ! Well the stunning views did. It was worth coming just for the views. We self catered and the accommodation had everything we needed with no problem cooking for 6 adults.

The beds were really comfortable. I suffer with a bad back and had no trouble at all getting a great nights sleep. The barn was centrally heated which worked instantly when needed. The enclosed garden was ideal for the three dogs and had seating and a barbecue should we have needed it. If you want total peace and quiet away with your dogs then this has to be the must come to place.

We all had a thoroughly lovely stay and much needed break and I would highly recommend a stay here whether for a short weekend or a longer week or two. There is an infinite amount of places to visit and activities provided both locally and in the wider area. One place we found particularly lovely was New Quay a quaint little seaside town with a lovely little dog friendly beach.

All in all a great week !!

“Can't wait to visit again”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The reviews don't do the barns justice, you need to visit yourself to see just how gorgeous the accommodation is (no slumming it here!), how stunning the views are (seriously beautiful) and most importantly, how dog friendly it truly is.
We took our two beagles & our 14 week old son for a few days of walking & exploring. The recommendations we got from Nikki were just what we were looking for & after a day's fresh air we sampled Nikki's cooking; fantastic:-)

Our dogs settled quickly, a good sign that we were made to feel at home & I loved the enclosed garden so they could potter around freely. They loved their play dates with the other beagles in residence too!

This was our first getaway as a new family & we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Nikki & Jay.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Bay Tree Barn has everything you could want for a quiet place to rest up after a busy day in the countryside or walking on the beautiful beaches. There is a lovely log burner to warm you, lovely comfy beds and if you aren't inclined to use the fully equipped kitchen ,Nikki's cooking is delicious and delivered to your door. A fully enclosed garden kept my lovely dog safe and meant we could let her out and not have to worry that she was going to wander off. The views are stunning.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Had a wonderful 4 days in the Hay Barn . The accommodation very comfortable & cosy, the scenery is breathtaking and we were blessed with lovely weather It's always a worry when taking 4 dogs on hols, but no need here we were all made to feel most welcome and left feeling so relaxed & chilled, in fact I would say the most comfortable holiday we have had with our dogs. Great beaches, forest walking and pub grub all with 30 mins drive, & Nikki's food is delicious for a night in!

Yes you did indeed have the weather Clare! How lovely that you felt so at ease with your 4 dogs. We do try to make it clear that we really are dog friendly, not just dog tolerant so thank you for mentioning that. As always we're delighted that guests enjoy the cottages, views, local pubs etc and my cooking. Hope you and your woofers can make it back for another visit some time.

“A little bit of heaven”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

had a fab week here. Wall to wall sunshine every day. Perfect accommodation and 5* food. Nicking is so knowledgeable about the area and is ever willing to help. Her cooking is to die for and the accommodation was warm, cosy and home from home. So great to have a safe place for our three 'fur babies'. If you want a lovely place, good food and a warm welcome then it's the place for you. Thank you Nikki and Jay. Will definitely be returning.
