Family and dog friendly with lots of space, the Barnacle is a private section of our sprawling barn conversion. It's relaxed and very rural. The perfect base for people pounding the Tarka Trail, or holidaying with kids, and just 30 mins from Devon's incredible beaches. There are greedy sheep, chickens, and pigs to pat, great views from the fields to enjoy with an evening gin and tonic (don't get the pigs tipsey!), friendly hosts, and a flock of small children.
One superking bedroom (just decorated and looking lovely) and one kingsize bedroom, sitting-room come breakfast room, bathroom (sorry no shower yet). There is no kitchen but we provide basic facilities for cereal/bread/coffee/tea/kettle/toaster/small fridge/combination microwave oven/grill provided in the sitting room. (So you can still make a pizza if you want to!). Lots of storage for your bikes and surfing clobber and tonnes of parking. Light and noise pollution is almost non-existent. On a clear night the stars are astonishing. You have your own front door. Good pubs nearby doing great food.
Please feel free to mooch about in the fields; there are a couple of tyre swings for the kids and our chickens, sheep and kune kune pigs love a bit of attention (and the odd apple).
We will usually be available throughout your stay. We are happy to give you space if you are craving isolation but are on hand if you need anything.
We are slowly renovating our home so, although the piles of building materials periodically move they never go away.
We have lots of child and baby equipment for you to borrow if you need it. High chairs, travel cots, bumbos, etc...Let us know in advance as we can set it up for you.
