Mrs Davis October 2023
We really love this property and have visited several times. The location is perfect and the house is a lovely size for a family of 6 or in our case two families of 3. The outside space and hot tub are very relaxing and it’s only a few minutes away from the beautiful beaches of Widemouth and Bude. We will definitely visit again!
Mr Parry August 2023
Fantastic cottage. Exactly what we were hoping for. The owners had thought about a lot of little touches which make this kind of holiday easier and more comfortable. Would highly recommend and will definitely be going there again.

Mrs Mitchell May 2023
5 grown ups go walking Greeted with a Welcome Cornish Cream & vase of roses. Such a nice touch. Lovely cottage very comfortable & in a great location for walking the coastal paths & Bodmin followed by a soak in a hot tub at the end of the day…… what more could you ask for Great to find a cottage with 3 en suite bath / shower rooms Hope to see you next year. Hopefully in the larger cottage if all the family can holiday at the same time. Thank you for such a relaxing stay.
Miss Hemstock April 2023
Well equipped property, located in a great area to explore the north coast of Cornwall and Devon. Each bedroom having its own ensuite was great and our two dogs loved the fully enclosed garden. Only negatives were the galley kitchen making it difficult for the cook to socialise and not having patio doors out to the garden from the living area. Would stay here again.
Mrs Hunt August 2022
Fabulous place to stay if you’re looking for walks into Widemouth or Bude with a dog. Garden very safe for children and dogs (although our granddaughter was envious of the Wendy house in the adjoining garden!) Super hosts ~ nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Anderson July 2022
The Old Brye is a wonderfully converted barn, with an attached property also rented out. Its located on a working farm, with chickens, horses, donkeys and sheep. During our stay we tried to walk to the Weir, but didn't make it in time and missed the last orders, we later returned and had a fantastic breakfast. We especially loved the fact everything was provided for an evening BBQ, whilst I cooked the family enjoyed soaking in the hot tub. The Kitchen is workable and loved the open-plan living room and dining room. Made family evenings fun and enjoyable. Everyone loved having their own bathroom, and Milly the dog loved the surrounding garden which swept around the property! Would definitely return! Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Mrs Storey April 2022
The Old Byre is a fabulous place to stay. A real home from home. It has a very spacious light and airy interior and the best equipped kitchen we have ever had in a holiday let. The bedrooms are all en suite and the whole property is beautifully furnished. The fully enclosed wrap round garden is massive with the fabulous hot tub being the icing on the cake. We would highly recommend it.
Mrs Bedbrook April 2022
We had an amazing week away and as the weather was nice we were able to visit a lot of places. We had full days out which were great but it was an added bonus that we would head back to a cozy comfortable accommodation at the end of the day. We would go back again.
Ms Keeling October 2021
The Old Byre was a brilliant autumn getaway with our dog. We knew it might be raining - and some of the time it was - so it was great to have a really well-equipped and comfortable place to retreat to until the sun came out again. The Old Byre was super clean, very quiet and perfect in every way. Thoroughly recommended.
Mrs Jarrett October 2021
Beautiful and luxurious accommodation, owners extremely welcoming and helpful.
Mrs Nicholds September 2021
A beautifully presented property, with a lovely big garden. Very comfortable beds and sofa. The hot tub was excellent too. A peaceful location, but with beaches and other attractions easily reached. Will definitely be back.
Mrs Henderson September 2021
This is a lovely property and the hosts were so helpful and focussed on making our stay comfortable.
Miss Prince August 2021
The Olde Byre is a fantastic property, very well equipped, spotlessly clean, super comfortable, excellent location which all adds up to a fab holiday. We hope to return in the near future!

Thanks for reviewing The Old Byre - it sounds like soaks in the hot tub after a long days exploring was well deserved! We hope to see you again soon. Bryony, Customer Support
Mrs Webb October 2020
Cannot fault the cottage, obviously due to covid lacked personal touches but we were very comfortable there.
Mrs Salter September 2020
Wonderful place for families to stay.
Mr Pittam August 2020
Lovely comfortable cottage ideal for dog walks down to the beach without having to get in the car. The large garden is also great to let the dog run on days when it’s too wet to go for a long walk.
Mrs Walsh December 2019
The Old Byre is a beautifully presented cottage in a wonderful location. It is close to stunning beaches and to the south west coastal path with many cliff top walks and idyllic villages to explore. The cottage is spotlessly clean and is very well equipped. It is perfect for all ages and also for dogs with an outdoor hose for washing muddy paws and also to hose down wetsuits! The owners are very welcoming and provide helpful information about the local area. We would highly recommend this cottage.
Mrs Woolman October 2019
This is an outstanding holiday cottage with absolutely everything required for a relaxing break. Meets adult, child and dog related requirements fully and at the highest standard. Cannot be faulted.
Mr Pittam August 2019
Good location, comfortable accommodation and a large garden for dogs and children to play in!
Mrs Spence August 2019

Mr Fisher July 2018
Great holiday. Even more space in the cottage than expected or as detailed in the description. Very quiet and relaxing. Fantastic value for money. Owners very welcoming.
Ms Greaves June 2018
We had a very enjoyable stay at the cottage. It was very spacious and comfortable, and in first class condition. Great location to explore North Cornwall. We liked walking through farmland to Widemouth beach. The cafe on the beach is great. Many thanks to all concerned
Mrs Jarrett March 2018
Beautiful barn, excellently equipped. The location is isolated enough to be peaceful and private but minutes from Bude and access to the coast.
Mrs London November 2017
It's beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. The farm is tidy and clean with a fabulous walk to the beach over the fields. A wonderful place for dogs with an outside hose to wash them down and a room to dry them off, perfect!

The cottage was stunning, so well converted and furnished tastefully and with good quality fixtures & fittings, excellent taste, a real home from ho9me feel to the place and despite being on a working farm, no disturbances, just 100% relaxation. Our doggie even made friends with one of the farm dogs(Rocky) Great location too, handy for just about everything!
