Fantastic base for a holiday in the West country. Fabulously equipped, and homely, with lovely finishing touches. Owners had thought of everything and give a great welcome, including a fabulous freshly home baked cake. Suitable for large family groups spanning all generations (we ranged from 7 - 83). Heartily recommend; each of us had a wonderful break enjoying quality time and making fabulous memories.
Miss Munkley April 2019
Quirky, details well though about, beautiful place to stay
Mrs Brazier April 2019
Family of six adults and two children under 7. We had a wonderful week in this lovely house. We had an amazing meal at the candlelight inn. The owners are very friendly they left us a rabbit cake and lots of chocolate eggs as it was Easter.
Miss Pearce April 2019
Great hosts. Lovely property. Hope to go back there again some day. The location is quite far from many things but still beautiful. Property excellently decorated.
Mrs Holme March 2019
From the start we were made to feel welcome by the lovely owners. The cake and fresh flowers were very much appreciated. We celebrated my parents Diamond anniversary with 3 generations. The house was comfortable warm and had some great style with kitchen lighting and beautiful mirror in the lounge. It was windy as it was March but the outside area with Hot tub and lots of furniture would be great in nicer weather. The view is super. The paddock was nice to have for our dog. We all enjoyed our stay and thank the owners and Classic cottages for everything they did. Including a gorgeous card for my parents. Much appreciated.

What a wonderful way to enjoy a family celebration - many congratulations to your parents, 60 years of marriage is a fabulous milestone. We're glad they liked the card (although we hope they may have had an even more exciting one from Her Majesty The Queen!) and we wish them many more years of togetherness ahead.

A very relaxing place to stay. All your needs catered for. Fabulous views
Mr Sturgess October 2018
We loved it! Amazing views from the hot tub and wonderful location walking distance to a lovely local pub! As ever the standard with classic is great and we had a perfect time with our family
Miss McCaffery October 2018
The Cow Shed was an ideal choice for us to meet up with friends to spend a leisurely week together. Very spacious and quiet allowing us to relax in comfort and enjoy late mornings, trips to the coast and evening meals in when required. The recommended Candlelight Inn was excellent as were the other recommendations provided. The play area for my dog has to be given 5 stars too. A most enjoyable week even the weather was kind to us. Thank you.
Mrs Grindle September 2018
A wonderful barn conversion in a peaceful and rural location. We were warmly welcomed by the owners who, although living next door were unobtrusive throughout our stay. The homemade Victoria sponge is a very thoughful touch and was much appreciated. We enjoyed using the hot tub which is private with lovely views.
We ate at the nearby Candlight Inn 3 times and enjoyed each visit.

Thanks so much for sharing your great experience of staying at The Cow Shed. The Candlelight Inn certainly seems to be popular with guests, and so convenient too. We hope to see you again in the future. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Walters September 2018
The cottage was perfect for what we needed for a short relaxing holiday. We were very lucky to be able to enjoy the terrace as the weather was sunny. A lovely place to stay.
Mrs Morse-Weaver September 2018
The advertisement was accurate and the service from start to finish was friendly and efficient. All relevant information was supplied and I was not exposed to unnecessary community actions. I would be happy to recommend Classic Cottages to my friends and family and would definitely book with you again. The Cowshed was exactly as described and was everything we wanted. The ground floor enquire bedroom was ideal for my elderly mother. The kitchen was very well equipped with every convenience and consideration. We cooked big family meals for ourselves most nights and we didn't lack in equipment, storage or space. The open plan kitchen, dining and living area was ideal for our group, who ranged from 15 to 85 years in age. The owners live next door and were extremely helpful without interfering. They made us a beautiful and tasty welcome cake for our arrival, which was a lovely touch and really set the tone for our stay. The outdoor area was delightful and the hot tub was amazing. We were lucky with the weather and spent a lot of time outside. Our dogs enjoyed the adjoining padlock and the walks. I'd recommend the cowshed and would love go back to try a winter weekend with the log burner!
Mrs White August 2018
An idyllic and tranquil setting. Perfect for families and dog friendly. Owners helpful and unobtrusive . Some lovely welcoming touches to include fresh flowers, herbs and a delicious Victoria sponge!
Mrs Endean-Webb June 2018
We had a wonderful stay. Owners, Terrie and Brian, were super friendly and helpful and the surprise Victoria Sponge Cake on arrival was amazing and much needed with a nice coffee after our drive ;o) . The property was beautiful and the location was amazing. I'll never forget those views across the pretty fields. Excellent stay, we'll definitely be using Classic Cottages again.
Mrs Mills June 2018
Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. The décor and furnishings were beautiful and we had everything we needed. We even got a home-baked cake ready for us on arrival! Some amazing views, and a glorious wildflower walk just outside the front door. Lovely local village pub in walking distance too. Booking process was very easy. We loved our little holiday here!
Mrs Smith May 2018
We will definitely return to this fabulous barn. The homemade app he filled with strawberries and fresh cream went down a treat when we arrived.
Mrs Weekes April 2018
The Cow Shed is a super cottage for 2 families. There is plenty to do within a 30 minute drive and a fab 2 mile circular walk straight from the cottage.
Mrs Slade March 2018
Both Brian and Terrie were very welcoming and helpful. The day we were due to go the weather report predicted a lot of snow so we called them and they let us go a day early which was great as just after we arrived we had a foot of snow and could't go anywhere for five days. They were extremely helpful and even offered food out of their freezer if we ran out of food! The cow shed is lovely and I would highly recommend it, in fact so lovely we as going back there in November ! Terrie has a great eye for detail and all the furnishings etc were just right.
Mrs Robinson February 2018
We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Cow Shed. The property and location were just perfect - you really could not want for anything. The hosts made us feel very welcome and at home with one of the best homemade cakes that we have ever tasted and a bottle of bubbles on arrival! All of the facilities were of such a high standard - we didn't want to leave! Thank you very much for a lovely holiday!
Mrs Friend February 2018
Love it and love the owners !

Mrs McNairn September 2016
beautifully restored barn conversion that is tastefully decorated and well equipped and comfortable
Mr Douce August 2016
The Cow Shed is the ideal place for a relaxed holiday. It has all the facilities needed. The views from the property are wonderful and you can relax in the hot tub looking at them. I would thoroughly recommend it to everyone. We have already booked it again for next year and may well try and come back for a short stay later this year if the property is available.
Mr Mehanna August 2016
Property was lovely, very modern and well equipped. I normally find kitchen knives and frying pans to be of v low quality in rentals, but this place had high quality equipment.
Re location, It's very hilly, so quite hard for local walks and bike riding. Wouldn't take bikes again.
Mrs Titmuss July 2016
We had a wonderful holiday in this property and would certainly like to return.
Mrs Jones June 2016
Beautiful cottage with access to lots of lovely things to see and do.
Ms Bradbury April 2016
The Cowshed is a delightful place to stay, the decor is luxurious and stylish. The hot tub is an amazing added bonus Set in the rolling hills it is the perfect place to get away and relax in. The owners were so friendly and had even made us a cake on arrival. I would highly recommend The Cowshed to stay in and I will most certainly be returning.
Miss Phipps April 2016
We have stayed in many holiday cottages and this one was of our favourites. Comfortable living, well equipped and lovely outside space (with great hot tub). Pub just down the road and lovely walks close by. All in all a lovely home from home - would definitely book this again in the future!!
