As I mentioned in the title: if you look for a fine place to relax and recover from the daily business, you will be really glad to stay at Southole Barns. A warm welcome and a barn with all in it you need will give you a great time there. We spent one week with our children (11 & 13) in Roseland Barn and appreciated the silence as much as the nearness to the coast. If you like to discover Devon or Cornwall, no problem because the bigger street is about 10min away by car. In short: perfect place to calm down without being far away from usual facilities (beach, pub, market, medieval places, horse riding, butcher, footpath, village, city etc.)

Stayed in Roseland Barn at Southole Barns with my elderly parents on our holiday from Australia. It was a bit of a hike down Devon lanes from the A39 but so worth it and quickly adjusted and enjoyed the lanes' jaunt. Seldon could not do enough to make myself and, more importantly, my parents comfortable. Excellent location for sightseeing around Cornwall and North Devon. Gorgeous decor and what a lovely place to relax. Can also highly recommend the local pub, The Old Smithy. Would certainly visit again. Will be singing its praises to all I know visiting this region.

A fabulous break in beautiful surroundings was made extra special by the attention of the owner. Additional touches such as the cream tea on arrival, ready made meals to purchase on site and extremely friendly welcome made the holiday unforgettable. Plenty of advice available on the best places to see, with up to date weather information and assistance with arrangements. Needless to say, we were very sad to leave and have come home to book the next trip to Southole !
