Owners, Laura & Jim were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. The cottages were ideal for all of our family and one dog. Our grandchildren made full use of the games room which is situated away from the cottages and the football goal posts. All this made for an enjoyable holiday.

The Root House near Barnstaple met our expectations in every way. The accommodation was light and roomy with a lovely enclosed area outside which was perfect for our dog. The shared games room, in a quirky milking shed location, included a cinema section which we loved. The orchard provided a lovely space for the dog when needed.

Very helpful and welcoming owners. Great for dogs with a secure field. The games room is a fantastic idea, kept my children occupied while the adults chilled out.

Excellent communication from the owners prior to our stay who asked questions so we got the best from our weekend break. Easily walkable to the Rising Sun pub, which we enjoyed. Lovely setting and lots of beaches and attractions within driving distance.

Well thought out barn conversion with good facilities & modern furnishings. The farm is in great location from which to explore North Devon & the shared recreation facilities will keep you busy in the evenings. The owners were extremely helpful and really made us feel welcome.

Root House, was a very well equipped property which was decorated to a very high standard. Parking directly outside the property. Inviting clean and comfortable. Stayed for a week, and found it a very tranquil and calm place to be. The outside had a table and chairs with a barbecue, and safe place for 2 dogs to enjoy their holiday as well.
