"Willkommen sein, Wandern, Wohlfühlen,"

Wir haben jeden einzelnen Tag genossen. Ein wunderschönes Anwesen in einer landschaftlich herrlichen Gegend. Das Beste: 5 Minuten über die Felder zu den Steilklippen und atemberaubenden Ausblicken. Komfortabel, sauber und heimelig ausgestattetes Ferienhaus. Es fehlt an nichts. Ein stets hilfsbereiter, freundlicher Vermieter. Üppig ausgestattetes Bücherregal, DVD, sonstige Unterhaltungsmedien. Umfangreiches Reiseführer- und Kartenmaterial vor Ort. Sehr gut ausgearbeiteter Ordner mit Ausflugstipps.
Idealer Standort für Wanderungen am Küstenpfad (South-West-Path) zu bezaubernden Ortschaften und Stränden.

"The perfect place to stay"

Week St Mary is cosy and beautifully presented. The coastal and countryside walks are stunning but most of all the warm welcome made our stay very special

"First-class hospitable accomodation in a beautiful peaceful setting"

We were welcomed by a lovely Devon cream tea after a long journey, which was great... The one-bedroom cottage was beautifully and professionally presented and has a superb view. Everything has very clear instructions, which is gratifying. It was very cosy and warm, with every facility we needed. We also loved the courtyard and spacious garden - and enjoyed hours on the wooden swing. This is an excellent location for long walks over the hils and to the sea. Seldon's hospitality was warm and helpful. Highly recommended. We'd certainly come again...

"The ultimate hideaway - peace & tranquillity"

Our second stay at Sothole in the Week St.Mary Barn. Southole is an excellent base for walking parts of the coastal path and although it's very quiet and peaceful it isn't far to Bude or Bideford if towns interests you more. Seldon always provides a warm welcome, is on hand if you need advice, and the accommodation is spotless and very comfortable

"Romantic Retreat"

The cottage was beautiful and in a stunning location only a few minutes from the coast.
We were greeted warmly and the owner suggested a number of walks which were stunning and places to eat which were great.
The cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch which set the scene for a very relaxing break.

"Perfect Stay in a Perfect Cottage!"

Wonderful location, high quality cottage perfect for two people. All fittings and furniture to the highest standard. One of the best night sleep we have had in a long time : - )

Literally, a 5 minute walk to the coastal path with spectacular views.

Last but not least, accommodating and friendly host. Would highly recommend.

A perfect Valentines weekend away!

"Magnificent location with high class accommodation"

A great location for a relaxing holiday. The barns are furnished to a high standard with all the facilities for a self catering holiday. Seldon (the owner) is on site to provide assistance and advice if required. The communal room is a large plus with the free use of a large collection of Videos/DVDs/CDs with indepth local information.
The location (just a short distance from the coastal path) allows the opportunity to explore the magnificent walks along the cliff tops with marvelous views to the coast line below. Everything about the holiday was first class and would highly recommend Southole Barns

"Great, comfortable stay at Week St Mary Barn"

My wife and I and our young baby had a great week at Southole Barns. We stayed in the Week St Mary Barn which was a good size to accommodate us and a small child.

We appreciated the small touches like welcome scones and provision of baby bath.

The Barn was very comfortable and well equipped which was a big advantage when the weather took a turn for the worse and we were house-bound.

As a place, it was well located, just a few minutes from the sea and the coastal path. The barns are off the beaten track which will be a advantage to some like ourselves and a disadvantage to others. There is a 10 minute single track drive to and from the mainroad but we didn't find it a problem.

There is an excellent pub, the 'Old Smithy' nearby which has a cosy, thatched cottage, roaring fire and wooden beams feel with a seventies twist.

Loads to do in the area and good information was provided in the barn. All in all, a very good holiday.
