    Beautiful cottage, comfortably furnished, lovely welcome pack, plenty to do (including a bonus table tennis table which we weren't expecting), short (steep) hike to the beach and friendly owners - what's not to like? Local amenities are limited but we wanted somewhere quiet so that was no surprise - more than compensated by the easy access to walks and nature.

    We had a lovely stay at Barnacle. It was very comfortable and everything was top quality. Maria and David go the extra mile to provide a lovely welcome basket and a range of kitchen essentials. There was even a first aid kit provided which measures the way they care about their guests needs. The terrace was a lovely place for sunny evenings. Lots of walks can be accessed from the property. A local shop a short drive away caters for basics. Visit the Farmers Arms a short drive away for excellent food. The cliffs at the end of the road offer fab sunset views. All in all we loved it!

    We have had the most wonderful stay in Barnacle. The location is idyllic and so peaceful, day and night. The welcoming and lovely owners have thought of everything to make Barnacle a practical and luxurious ‘home from home’. The beds are really comfortable the kitchen fully equipped with everything you need. We didn’t want for anything. We loved staying there and will be back!

    This is a gem of a cottage in a beautiful part of the world. Right on the South West Coast path. The cottage is huge and beautifully furnished with every need thought of. It has a lovely private patio outside to sit and soak up the sun. Equally, big leather sofas and wood burner if you are not so lucky with the weather. If you happen as we did to visit during a full moon, you may be able to catch up with David, the owner at low tide who will share his extensive knowledge about this coastline and he may even show you how to catch a lobster or a crab... with a bamboo cane and a hook and a net! Fascinating! Thank you so much, we had a wonderful stay.

    If you a looking for somewhere special to get away from the rat race, Barnacle cottage certainly fits that bill. Located at the end of a long, tree lined lane, with the rugged sea a stones throw from its front door, the cottage is a warm and cosy retreat. Much larger than the photos depict, it is comfortably furnished with a mixture of 'London Contemporary' and 'Seaside Devon', where you won't be disappointed with evenings sitting in front of the log burner on large chocolate brown, leather sofas and sleeping on soft (The White Company) bedlinen. The location is perfect for a gentle stroll, or steep hike (depending on your frame of mind), with stunning views of the Devonshire coastline, and only a short drive from the picturesque Clovelly and the vibrant seaside town of Bideford. Our hosts, Maria and David, were so friendly and couldn't have been more helpful in making our Autumnal holiday as stress free and relaxing as possible.

    We had an amazing weekend 'retreat' at Barnacle! Marie and David were wonderful; there to meet us when we arrived having put the lights and heating on so it was incredibly welcoming. They were both really friendly and approachable which was particularly nice after a long drive on a Friday night! The cottage is immaculately clean and furnished beautifully. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and we loved using the aga! I was with my 12 year old son and 18 year old daughter and they both had a lovely time. The village is really quaint and there are some beautiful walks straight from the door. Although there is a little shop at the top of the road, it was closed on Saturday (about 4.30pm) so I did have to drive a fair distance to find another one. If we had had a little more time we would have walked along the coastal path to Clovelly and visited the pub for lunch....Hopefully next time!

    This property oozes with quality and luxury embedded in a subtly eco-friendly and organic ethos. The owners David and Maria were wonderfully generous and welcoming. They made it clear that they were happy to be on call if we needed them but also happy to leave us to our own devices. Absolutely everything has been thought of in terms of kitchen equipment and furnishings. Yes it is isolated, but that contributes to the charm. The stunning sea front is only 100 yards away with views in both directions and out to Lundy. The local post office (a mile uphill!) is well stocked for most things you could need and larger stores are within an easy drive. The local coast line is wonderful for walking as are walks inland, there is plenty to see and do. We had a wonderful stay and did not want to return home!
