Fantastic cottage, ideal for a quiet get away. Very clean and has everything you need. The safe enclosed garden space was great for the dogs and the close proximity to field walks was wonderful. The owner was always willing to discuss walking opportunities and provide sun loungers when the sun came out. If you have a dog this is a very friendly plaRead morece to go. However, you will be surrounded by beautiful countryside so if you want to go to the beach you will have to travel a few miles. Hide

Realy enjoyed our stay here, very clean and comfortable, nice and cosy with the fire burning on wet cold nights. Our two dogs loved it as there was a large field for them to run round in. Beaches and shops not too far away, about 8 miles. Gill and her husband are lovely made us feel very welcome. Will definitely be returning.

We have stayed at Willow barn a few times now and can't rate it highly enough. The cottage is clean and spacious with a lovely enclosed garden for our dog to play in. We love how quiet it is at the cottage but still close to Holsworthy and Bude if needed. Gill, the owner, is really welcoming and we look forward to our next visit.

The cottage was cosy and comfortable with everything we needed. Lengths had been gone to in order to ensure COVID safe and plenty of additional cleaning products supplied. The dog walking field was a wonderful bonus, plenty big enough for an evening or morning amble - this should be a well published asset, our dogs loved it.

The cottage is lovely and the location is very peaceful. Its great for dogs as there is an enclosed area and the property is at the end of a long lane so no fear of passing traffic. The cottage was very clean too. The location was great, a short drive from several beaches and small towns. We had a lovely stay, thank you.

The place is an absolute, spotless gem; the hosts couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. Great retreat to get away from it all. It's ideal for dogs: a fenced, private garden, enormous field for free runs and plenty of walking routes. Property has all mod cons: wifi, smart tv all kitchen appliances, very efficient heating. We loved the wood burner Read morein the evenings and wood baskets on our doorstep. Worth to stock up before you arrive and relax. We can't wait to book again! Thank you Gill and Tom. Hide

Lovely cosy cottage, big enough for 2 and dogs! Gorgeous log burner which we used each morning and evening. Great dog walking field on farm. Position is a bit remote, nearest village 11 minutes drive away and roads not suitable for walking as no footpaths so car needed to explore. Wasn't really a problem for us. Great area, handy for both Devon andRead more Cornwall. Would definitely go back. Hide
