Overall, this we had an excellent holiday at Woodbine Barn. The location, in the middle of gorgeous Devon countryside, is superb. Nothing to hear but the sound of silence! There are also a number of good walks to be had right on the doorstep.
If you like peace and quiet, you'll enjoy Woodbine Barn. That said, many of North Devon's attractions are within easy driving distance, for example the seaside towns of Ilfracombe, Lynmouth and Woolacombe and the excellent beach at Saunton Sands. Exmoor is right on the doorstep featuring the Exmoor Pony Centre and attractive villages such as Dulverton and Exford.
From a practical point of view, Woodbine Barn is well equipped and furnished. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

Above all expectations...well done to all concerned. Must be very careful though driving around the local area, due to the widths of the roads!!

Woodbine Barn is a peaceful, countryside treasure - please can we keep its secret to ourselves! My husband grew up in South Devon and this was our first trip over 'the moor' to North Devon and it was a delight to explore the area - we loved it! The beautiful sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands contrasting with little lanes and hidden valleys and how the cliffs of Exmoor rise out of the sea. The accommodation suited our purposes very well; Woodbine Barn was quiet, cosy and comfortable and our host Martin was welcoming but unobtrusive to just the appropriate degree.

The best property we have ever stayed in Owners were very welcoming and lovely finishing touches milk , jams, flowers and definitely the wine Place was spotlessly clean and very well equipped Place was so quiet and relaxing and the only noise was the birds singing in the area Felt so chilled and relaxed and did not want to leave Can not wait to visit again

This property was cleaned to a very high standard. The furnishings, decoration & equipmentwas also superb, you wanted for nothing. The housekeeper Liz was so helpful in many ways, over and above what you would have expected. This property was absolutely charming, it was comfortable, well equipped & just so peaceful. We will definitely be booking it again. We really can’t think of anything that we weren’t happy about, just wished we could have stayed longer.

The property exceeded our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Woodbine Barn. We met the owner towards the end of our week who was extremely pleasant and thoughtful. On arrival, we were surprised but very appreciative that some provisions and flowers had been left for us - a very considerate gesture which made us feel very welcome. As well as the barn, we particularly liked the privacy of the garden and use of the private paddock (our two small dogs enjoyed running around in the paddock each morning) and the wonderful view of the surrounding Devon countryside was breathtaking. We were extremely appreciative of the parking area which could not have been closer to the barn.

A very well equipped barn conversion, in a lovely off the beaten track setting. One of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. The high speed internet is 4G service, which works very well for such an out of the way location. There is a monthly usage cap, so if you are use to watching Netflix etc then I'd suggest bringing a few DVD's to keep yourself entertained.

Great place to recharge!! Fields at the back were perfect for the training of my gundogs!! That was really something extra that made it a perfect holiday for us all!! Dogowners: please be aware that your dogs should be under control all time. There is no fence around the garden. Free access to countrylane and surrounding fields. Lots of wildlife, roe deer grazing in the fields in morning and evening.
