“such an amazing stay”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Was such an amazing experience, it was a lovely place to stay, nice and cosy but also spacious. Situated next to a field which was great for walking round (even setting up a wedding which we did) and is also animal friendly so pets felt free to wander around without any danger. Owners where such lovely, friendly people. Would definitely stay again!!

“Absolutely relaxing and peaceful”
Reviewed May 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

Stayed at Ivy Barns twice and was one of the most relaxing and tranquil vacations, so much so that we went twice in one year.
Definitely for a couple or family wanting to get away from city life for a much needed rejuvenating break.
John and Yvonne are wonderful owners who enhanced the time spent at their beautiful homely Ivy Barn.

“Relax and Unwind at The Ivy”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Arrived to a warm and friendly welcome from the owners John and Yvonne. Tea and coffee was available and milk was in the fridge along with a bottle of wine! They had let us know that Waitrose delivered and our shopping was unpacked for when we arrived! Ivy barn is beautiful and extremely well equipped. Stayed for one week with my husband, teenage son and dog. A peaceful location a short drive away from both Widemouth Bay and Bude. I would highly recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed.

“very friendly, warm welcome.”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Lovely location, close to Bude, only five minutes drive. The barn had all the amenities needed for our stay. Great private garden with outside tap, ideal for cleaning beach stuff at end of day. Large comfy lounge, good beds. A lovely stay, very relaxing. Would definitely visit again.

“Idylic Ivy Barn”
Reviewed January 24, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

A truly lovely cottage, beautifully converted & tastfully furnished with enclosed garden & distant sea views. Excellent location, so close to Widemouth Bay
The owners, Yvonne & John, are such hospitable people without being intrusive.
I would highly recommend Ivy Barn without hesitation. You won't be disappointed.
