Absolutely lovely cottage in the middle of nowhere. Highly recommended if you want to get away from it all. Well equipped & dog friendly. We were welcomed with a lovely cream tea. We also made use of the hot tub. Unfortunately we found the beds to be very hard but I suppose that is down to individual preference.

The freshly baked scones, jam and cream on arrival were a real treat. Its was a very cosy cottage, there was even a Christmas Tree adding an extra homely touch. Make sure you use Google maps and not a SavNav to get there.

Idyllic cottage located 6 miles from Bideford. Our family was aged 8 weeks to 73 years old and it appealed to everyone! we all loved feeding the chickens, the lovely crazy spaniels and the hot tub. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely welcome. lanes are extremely narrow and winding so it is a bit of a mission to get anywhere but adds to the charm.Read more Wifi was advertised but did not work at all during our stay.

The property and its location were suburb. It has a French/Brittany feel to it. The property easily housed 8 people in comfort. It was spacious and well thought out and felt very homely.

The Treshing Barn is an ideal place for a quiet stay. The welcome was warm and friendly and we were very comfortable throughout our long weekend there. All rooms are well-equipped and it was fun to see the hens and ducks strutting about.
