"A wonderful holiday cottage, did not want to come home!"

Our stay at Barley Cottage was brilliant. We have two small children aged 6 and 9, both of whom did not want to leave the cottage either. It is so beautifully decorated and everything, really EVERYTHING needed was there. It really is the most wonderful cottage to stay in; comfortable, stylish, cosy, clean, fresh - the garden/ decking area was great to chill out in once the children were in bed. Georgeham is beautiful and really friendly. Croyde, Puttsborough and Braunton five min away - the walk to Puttsborough was great! Nice pubs with friendly locals.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Barley cottage and many thanks for your lovely comments. We hope to welcome you again in the future. Best wishes Jacqueline & Simon, Barley Cottage
