Location description from owner

The England region

With a very mild climate all year round North Devon is a wonderful location at any time of year

Barnstaple

Barnstaple is the commercial centre of the region, combining sophisticated shopping with the bustling atmosphere of markets and speciality shops. The modern Green Lanes Shopping Centre compliments the traditional Pannier and Craft Markets held since 1855 in the Pannier Market Hall. This attractive market town is the oldest and largest town in North Devon, nestling in the Taw valley on the other side of the estuary which the Saxons first settled in Barnstaple (Barum) over 1000 years ago.The Long Bridge, crossing the tidal River Taw was thought to have been built in the 12th and 13th centuries and in Litchdon Street are located the Penrose Almshouses built in the early 17th century.

“Very cosy,animal friendly and well equipped.”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2016

Lovely place to stay at and so conveniently placed to some great areas. Lovely log burner and very clean property with an outstanding indoor pool that is heated to 36 degrees. Trampolines for the children to play on and all in such a safe environment. John and Sue are very nice owners and are always on hand if needed. 2 properties also dog friendly with all beaches dog friendly from October to May.

“Amazing rental in a great location with so much to see and do”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2015

Having stayed in a few holiday lets before I was expecting good basic comfort but this was much more. With a modern kitchen and new bathrooms it was sharp, clean and yet really cosy with comfortable beds and log burning fire. We were given a warm welcome despite our late arrival and only had to ask if there was anything we wanted. There was teabags, milk, oil and eggs as well as a fully a fully equipped kitchen. Towels were also provided. There is even an information room on the farm with leaflets and computer for planning your adventures. The indoor swimming pool was excellent as was the games room where we enjoyed table tennis. I hired a bike from the farm and cycled went down the Tarka trail which is just down the lane and over the main road. A great day out and lovely cafe at fremington quay for a well deserved tea and cake at the end. A great location with easy access to town and the rest of the county. We enjoyed days out in exmoor, the North Coast and down to Cornwall. Instow is nearby and a lovely costal village with a beach, pub and great place to watch the sunset. We enjoyed evenings at the farm, sat out with a bbq and glass of wine watching the animals, until the sunset over the fields the returned indoors to a cosy log burning fire. So peaceful and relaxing. Fantastic holiday. Plan to return next year!

“Wonderful UK holiday with lots to do inside and outside!”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2015

We stayed here for a week as a family of 4 and we had a wonderful time as the location is so near to great beaches, long flat cycle routes, restaurants etc. On site there is so much to do so if the weather is not so great, you're able to swim in the warm pool and play badminton as well as table tennis, pool and air hockey. We have stayed in other properties in Devon but found this to be the best one in terms of activities and location.

“All you need from a self-catering holiday home”

Tucker's Retreat is ideal for a small family (3-4) and even has collapsible cot. Master bedroom has 4-poster bed and very nice en-suite with shower. Washing facilities and good size kitchen. Private garden with shared (large) fish pond. Parking right out front. Ideally located in between Barnstaple and Bideford and also the beaches. Instow beach very close. For young children there are trampolines, table-tennis, badminton, pool-table and an indoor swimming pool. Will definitely be going back - Combrew Farm is our home-from-home. John and Sue are also only too pleased to help and ensure the stay is most enjoyable.

“Fantastic cottages and great location”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2015

This was our third stay in Tuckers retreat at Combrew farm and it was just as good as the first stay. Sue was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped. The children loved the warm pool. It was in a great location for lots of places to visit. We will be back in the future.

“Another happy stay at Combrew”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2015

I've lost count of the number of times we've stayed at Combrew. This time we stayed at Tuckers Retreat, and as expected, we found it very well equipped and very clean. Weather was fine, so we both enjoyed our holiday very much.

This was our 5th consecutive visit to Tuckers Retreat and we still enjoy it as much as ever.The accommodation is first class and you couldn't want for anything. We are always made so welcome and we had another lovely relaxing stay. We will keep coming back.

“Home from home”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2015

We loved this cosy little cottage with its own courtyard garden and pond. Two comfortable bedrooms and two well appointed bedrooms. Cosy, warm and safe with a built in stairgate. A reclining chair in the garden would have been lovely on a sunny day to better enjoy the tinkling water and birdsong.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2015

We had a warm welcome when arriving at the cottage. The cottages are all very comfortable and everything is provided. They are in an excellent location for travelling to places in North Devon. We enjoyed going to Appledore. We hope to return in the near future.

“Superb value for money, don't miss out!”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2015

Everything you could wish for, beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean and very we'll maintained we enjoyed another totally chilled out stay at Combrew Farm, this place really is a jewel in North Devon, Sue & John make sure your stay is so comfortable you don't want to leave! Everything is within walking distance or a short drive away. we stayed in Tuckers cottage again, lots of little extras surprise you, from fresh eggs from the chickens to biscuits to have with your first cuppa after a long journey. We took the dog this time which made the long walks even more enjoyable and when we got back we were able to relax in the jacuzzi before dinner, where else can you do this without paying top hotel prices? Superb value for money we will definitely return.
