Quiet with plenty of space for children. Very enjoyable. Lovely views. September 2017

Bev F
Lovely comfortable home from home. We enjoyed a lovely week with our 5 teenage children and our dog. The Byre is well situated but quiet enough so you will only hear cows or the gorgeous donkeys who live on the farm. The house is comfortable and very well equipped. Wi fi much appreciated by the teenagers. We would highly recommend. August 2017

Well maintained property with a huge garden. Ideal for a relaxing break, in the beautiful Devon countryside and midway between the beaches of Bude and Westward Ho. The kids enjoyed the animals and wildlife around the farmyard. June 2017

Marc R
Very comfortable, warm and well equipped providing a lovely place to stay. We had a lovely week at The Byre making the most of the unusually good weather. The accommodation is very well equipped, warm (underfloor heating), clean and up to date. Spacious enough for 8 people but still with a cosy feel. A nice quiet location with a good outlook/views of the sea. It is well positioned with plenty of things to do in any direction (via car).
Would definitely book again, thank you. March 2017

Great location, wonderful warm, well equipped house. Enjoyed a long Feb weekend with girlfriends at The Byre. We were all thrilled with the accommodation, just right for a party of seven adults. Underfloor heating a marvellous luxury in February. We took two dogs who were very comfortable in the house, too. Lovely big garden and decking perfect to sit out on in warmer weather. Walks a short drive away, Bucks Mills was a great find, and some of us walked part of the South West Coast Path near Hartland Quay. Hoops Inn highly recommended for top quality food. No shops in walking distance but only a short drive to Hartland which has a well-equipped village store. I would definitely think about coming to The Byre again. February 2017

Fantastic holiday cottage. What a wonderful holiday house this is. Beautifully and tastefully decorated and fantastically equipped with everything you could need for your break away. Comfortable beds, sooooo warm and a lovely garden. Just had a week here with my family of 6 adults, 2 dogs and 2 very small children and it was perfect. The owners are so helpful and friendly, answering all queries super fast. Thank you. We will be back. October 2016

Cannot recommend highly enough! Following on with the theme, we too arrived on a dismal day and was very happy to find such a lovely, welcoming property. This is a very well equipped and we’ll presentation home away from home. There is nothing that you could want for in the kitchen or entertainment wise. We all made great use of the WiFi and digital TV on the days that the weather kept us indoors. Thankfully we had a good number of sunny days to explore the beautiful surroundings. Whilst the building is remote enough to be peaceful it is ideally situated to jump on a main route between the local resorts. A fab break in a very nice place. Thanks to the owners. Muchly recommended. September 2016

A real find! Whilst the weather wasn’t particularly kind to us during our week’s stay, we knew that we could return at the end of each day to very welcoming and comfortable accommodation. The Byre is a beautifully converted building with unusual features such as the second, mezzanine lounge – ideal for shunting the kids into when a little quiet was required by the adults! Everything you could need is provided, from comfortable beds to a very well-equipped kitchen which, as the chief cook, I appreciated (my only caveat being that a knife sharpener would have been useful). The property was very well maintained and spotless. There is a well-stocked and friendly general store (Pop-In) in Hartland for all basic groceries, newspapers etc. ..and cash back when needed. The complementary bottle of wine on arrival was much appreciated! Just one thought: keep an eye on the petrol gauge as there is no garage in Hartland and the nearest ones are either in Bideford or Bude. July 2016

An lovely property with excellent facilities. This property pretty much has it all: a lovely and intriguing (presumably) barn conversion, with lots of character, in an outstanding location. Everything conceivable was supplied to make the stay as painless and fuss free as possible. The complimentary wine was a lovely touch. The property wanted for nothing, was very well maintained. It served our needs perfectly and in this regard we cannot praise it highly enough. February 2016

Superb Accommodation! We arrived to a toasty warm cottage on a cold, rainy night. From the off we were very happy we had chosen the Byre for our short break. Couldn’t fault anything about it. It had a well equipped kitchen. Everything was very clean. The bedrooms in particular smelled fantastic. Brilliant selection of games/puzzles/cd’s/dvds – which we made good use of! The back garden was massive – big enough for our two dogs to have a nice sniff about. We were inside for most of our stay (really horrible weather!), but we still had lovely 5 days and would highly recommend the Byre to our family and friends. January 2016
