A Peaceful Country Retreat.......

Stop Press! The Barn has just been awarded a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Adviser - May 2014

The Barn at Southcombe Farm is an amazing 2 bedroom 5 Star luxury self catering cottage. It is really comfortable and has lovely country views.

The barn sleeps 4 with plenty of space and comfort. Perfect for small families, friends or couples. The upper floor is open plan with a great country kitchen and dining area leading to a large lounge with two comfortable leather sofas, stereo, TV, DVD, log burner and of course fantastic views out over the surrounding countryside. Downstairs are the cosy, but spacious bedrooms (1 King & Twin) with views out into the stable yard. The bathroom is lovely too, fully tiled, piping hot water and spotlessly clean, so a long bath is a pleasure!

Although the barn is bright and airy, it is also warm complete with efficient under floor heating. Whenever you visit, whatever the weather, you will be very comfortable. In fact many of our guests have already returned!

Our prices are really competitive ensuring you the very best value. Remember, heating, bed linen, towels and robes are all included and we have been rated 5 Star by Enjoy England .

We are open all year including Christmas and New Year when the barn is tastefully decorated for that perfect festive escape to the country.

Remember we are in a great spot with lots to do all around, great countryside, fantastic beaches, fishing, horse riding, walking, surfing, canoeing, country houses, gardens and fresh air! Not to forget our lovely horses and foals who will be your holiday neighbours!

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 Bude, Boscastle, 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 Hatherleigh 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.

For beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs and amazing seaside wildlife head towards Bude just 15 mins away. If you are into surfing these beaches are some of the best!

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 relaxing country & coastal walks - Relax @ Southcombe Farm!
