“Oasis of peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings and excellent accomodation”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We were looking for somewhere away from it all and found it in Raleigh barn. An oasis of peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings. Warm, comfortable accommodation that we felt almost immediately relaxed in. Lovely attention to detail and thoughtful extras.Thankyou Sarah and Myles.One of the best self catering cottages/barns we've stayed in.

“Lovely barn in a fantastic setting”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a fantastic stay in Raleigh Barn. A beautiful quiet location in the north Devon countryside with lots of lovely walks and beaches a short drive away. Definitely recommend a trip to Clovelly and Sandy Mouth! The barn is newly converted and beautifully decorated. Sarah and Myles were very welcoming hosts and we loved playing with Sally the dog. Would definitely stay again.

“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I recently spent a weekend staying at Raleigh and found it the perfect relaxing getaway. The barn has been converted to an incredibly high standard and is set in a very peaceful location. Myles and Sarah are excellent hosts along with their dog Sally and friendly chickens. During our short time at Raleigh we were easily able to find beautiful coastal walks and cosy pubs within a short driving distance.

Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a tranquil stay in the beautiful Devon countryside.

““Lovely barn conversion in North Devon””
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just returned home from a relaxing week in Raleigh Barn. Converted recently to a very high standard this is a great place to holiday. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. Owners Myles and Sarah were friendly and helpful and added nice touches with fresh flowers and a home baked cake on arrival. We certainly recommend it if you are looking for a quiet rural location.

“Lovely barn conversion in rural location”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Spent a week here at the end of August. Weather was indifferent but the accommodation was superb and the owners were extremely friendly. The barn has just been converted to a very high standard. It's in a very rural location but if you want peace and quiet, this is difficult to beat. Even the chickens were friendly.

“Very comfortable and peaceful in convenient location. Exquisitely decorated.”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Highly recommend this peaceful haven which has been beautifully and tastefully decorated and equipped by hosts Myles and Sarah.
Perfect location for exploring North Devon's spectacular coastline and countryside.
We had the pleasure of spending a week in the Barn in August and were made to feel very welcome by Myles and Sarah - who have paid attention to the finest of detail in finishing the Barn - complete with bouquets of fresh flowers from the garden - as well a a freshly baked (Sarah) cake which went down extremely well after a long drive down from W. London. Could not recommend highly enough!
