A cluster of five beautifully appointed holiday homes, Southole Barns, is tucked away on the rural coastline of North West Devon. Families may find it hard to leave the beautiful gardens, outdoor play area, nature garden and friendly pets but the nearby beaches, picturesque fishing villages, friendly country pubs and the South West Coast Path are most certainly worth the drive.

About this place

Best bits

  • Exploring the gorgeous garden, playground and nature area–your little ones will be in their element.
  • The location is brilliant. Head straight out the door for a stroll along the cliffs or down the valley to the nearby beach.
  • Welcombe Mouth, with its brilliant waterfall and rock-pools, is walking distance away, along the stunning cliff-path or down the quiet wooded lane. Divine!

Top tips

  • Be sure to explore the ‘Wrecker’s Coast’ with its picturesque fishing villages and rocky coves.
  • Parents with babies and toddlers can pack light–wooden cots, a highchair and baby bath are available in all properties.
  • Bring your swimming gear and take to the surf! There are loads of popular surfing beaches a short drive away.

About the owners

Chris & Lydia

Listed since October 2020

We stumbled across Southole Barns in 2013 and were captivated by its charms. After lavishing dollops of TLC and numerous man hours, all alongside raising a young family, we've created a really special haven set within the Hartland Peninsula. Guests are welcomed warmly and sure to feel well rested and content. We couldn’t recommend more highly, a walk along the South West Coastal Path renowned for its dramatic scenery, breathtaking sea views and shipwrecks.

Owner recommendations

  • Take a trip to nearby Hartland Abbey - the kids might recognise it from popular CBBC show Mallory Towers.

  • History buffs will be in their element with several National Trust properties dotted around North Devon.

  • They’ll no doubt be impressed by Tintagel too. A very pretty town famous for its association with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

  • There are sheep races, pony rides, play areas, a garden centre and high ropes course at the Big Sheep amusement farm park– something for all ages.

  • The Milky Way is another excellent adventure park with indoor and outdoor activities. It’s also home to Devon’s longest, fastest and highest roller coaster.

  • Check out the privately owned, traffic free cliff-top village of Clovelly. The cobbled streets, quaint houses and working harbour will throw you back into bygone eras.
