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 may prove tempting.

There are two barns set on the ground floor, with just one low step. Unfortunately, the remaining three are split level and accessed via a set of exterior stairs.

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.
