“Perfect retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A perfect location, close to the stunning Devonshire coast. We stayed in one of the beautiful little barns which was spotless, well equipped, cosy and surrounded by lovely gardens. The barns are set among rolling hills and you can access the coastal path via the field opposite - only a 5 minute walk away. Both Bideford and Bude are a short drive away.

The owners Chris and Lydia were very welcoming and we were greeted with a delicious Devonshire cream tea on arrival. Nothing was too much trouble for them and Chris even offered to pick us up from a local pub if we didn't fancy walking back!

This is great if you love walking and being by the sea. There are a couple of pubs fairly close by which serve food and are very welcoming but to be honest, we decided to cook every night as the accommodation was so nice and cosy after a long walk. Also if you love wildlife, there's lots of it. The garden is visited by lots of lovely birds and we saw Buzzards and other birds of prey, plus a stoat and a fox in the gardens (not at the same time)!!!

We can highly recommend Southole Barns and can't wait to go back again.

We stayed for 4 nights with our daughter our aim to complete walking the hartland section of the coastal path. This part of the coast is quite challenging and isolated so we were very grateful to Chris who acted as taxi for us on 2 occasions. We had a wonderful time and it was lovely to return to the cosy barn at the end of a long days walk.
The pub The Smithy served good food and made us welcome.
Make sure you have plenty of supplies before coming to this rental as it is quite isolated.
