Mead Barn Cottages are set in an AONB close to the North Devon coastline near the Cornish border. Within minutes you can be on the dramatic beach at Welcombe Mouth, popular with surfers, or walk along the South West Coast Path. At Mead Barns there are five cottages, converted from an old barn, sleeping from 2 to 8 people. On site we have a games room with pool table and table tennis, children's play area and tennis court. There is a laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryers. Dogs are welcome in all of our cottages and we are perfect for family seaside holidays, walking, exploring or just rewinding and relaxing.

Our thanks for your 5* review Jonathan! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us such a positive review. You raise good points regarding coast hangers for outdoor wear and wellies, and I shall see to it that more coat hangers are provided for and that the information on our cottages is updated to suggest that guests might want to bring wellies during the Winter season here in the country. Happy New Year to your family. Regards, Martin & Joanna.

Stayed in the ground floor 6 person cottage - Rye Barn. Would very happily recommend this place to friends and family. What I like the most is that the property does not compromise on the standard of accommodation just because they accept dogs. In many places we have stayed

Hello Rachel, I just wanted to say a quick thank you for leaving us a positive review and also to apologise for the late response (it has been such good weather here that we're spending as little time as possible indoors and on the computer). We look forward to seeing you again very soon! Warm regards, Martin & Joanna

We stayed at the Mead Barn Cottages for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were very clean and have everything you could possibly need and are outstanding for a disabled person. There are lots of extras like a tennis court, pool table and table tennis. They

Are the bedrooms and bathroom at Meade cottage upstairs?
Many thanks for your question. It depends on which cottage - all the bedrooms and bathrooms in Rye are downstairs. There is a double bedroom and wetroom in Tythe Barn on the ground floor with 3 bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms upstairs. Red Cottage is all ground floor and both Barley and Wheat are on one floor but up some external stairs to enter the properties. Hope this helps.
