The West Country region
Rural north Devon on the border with Cornwall, ideal for all outdoor activities from walking to cycling, surfing to mountain-boarding, golf to horse riding. At the heart of the Ruby country, close to Roadford lake with sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and canoeing, wonderful wildlife and fishing, with easy access to Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor.
Great days out at historic Tintagel, easy drive to artistic St Ives and Port Isaac, fabulous gardens at Rosemoor and the Eden project less than an hour away, National Trust properties abound throughout the region and all within easy reach.
This is a wonderfully non-commercial area where people still live off the land - enjoy the local nature and learn about grow your own, visit colourful markets in Holsworthy and Tavistock and buy from the locals who grow and make everything from fine works of art to the humble home-grown but truly delicious fruit and veg.
Excellent local restaurants and pubs to suit all pockets from happy family pub right up to fine dining with wonderful south west wines. Try out a country fayre or one of the big agricultural shows, see and sample the finest produce Devon and Cornwall has to offer.
Music , small theatres, comedy clubs/pubs or moonlit walks along sandy beaches - one of the few areas left with little or no light pollution - leave all the fast and furious behind and enjoy life in the slow lane if only for a little while

we stayed at the stone barn for 40th birthday celebrations with a group of family and friends, including babies, toddlers and young children. the house was perfect for our needs and really homely, comfortable and good for socialising with the large kitchen area and living room with a double fronted fire. the use of the games room was great particularly as the weather was a bit mixed. despite the weather we got out and explored the nature trails a couple of times which required nothing other than walking out the front door (and a pair of boots) which took the effort out of getting some fresh air in nice surroundings. we had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend in a house that was very well kitted out and very confortable and clean without ever feeling like it had never been lived in. would highly recommend it as a place to put your feet up and relax.

"Perfect location for a family get together"
We recently spent a wonderful week in Stone Barn/South Beer for a family celebration/get together with extended family, teenagers and young children plus 3 dogs. We all had a fantastic time thanks to the excellent help from the owners Elaine and Dick Green. Lovely homely touches when you arrive including homemade cakes. It really is the perfect location, where everyone can have their own space and go off for lovely walks in the woodlands and enjoy the peace and quiet of the North Devon countryside. The activity/games room is a real plus for those wet days and it proved to be a very good party room as well! Thoroughly recommended.

"A perfect family getaway."
The Stone barn is a truly beautiful eco-cottage that has been renovated to the highest of standards. All the fixtures and fittings have been carefully thought through and blend in superbly with the chosen decor. The barn has a very warm and comfortable feel and we felt very at home either snuggled up on the sofas or enjoying a drink around the kitchen table. The kitchen itself is very well equipped: from utensils and cling film to vinegar, eggs and even a welcoming, delicious home made cake!
The children loved getting all wrapped up, popping their wellies on and going for walks through the stunning nature reserve. The beautiful seaside town of Bude was within easy reach, as was Dartmoor and Okehampton.
