Property code: NORWO

This property is ideal for guests who are hoping to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, and relax in tranquil countryside surroundings. Although situated in a sleepy hamlet, the property is within a short drive of the town of Barnstaple, where there is a good range of shops and restaurants, a theatre, leisure centre, and a swimming pool. Nowhere is particularly far from the beach in Devon, and this property is no different, and there is a choice of lovely beaches within easy reach, including the pretty beach in the village of Instow and the impressively large sandy beach in Westward Ho!

This is one of two barn conversion properties which sit across from one another on a quiet courtyard. The ground floor of the property is an open-plan space. The spacious lounge area is a welcoming and relaxing space with a contemporary feel, where guests will find a recliner sofa, a woodburner and Smart TV with Netflix.  The kitchen/diner area, set off to one side of the room has a spacious island with dining seating attached. The kitchen area has everything that guests will need, including an oven and hob, microwave, fridge freezer,  dishwasher and washing machine. Taking the staircase to the galleried bedroom, guests will find a pleasant space with a king-size bed. Just off the bedroom is a shower room with WC and on the opposite side of the stairs, a dressing area.

Leading out from the kitchen through the patio doors you will find an enclosed garden with patio area and garden furniture, BBQ, and the wonderfully relaxing hot tub.

We had a wonderful stay at Norwood Barn, it was warm, cosy and romantic, perfect for a week stay. Emma and Nikki have thought of everything, from offering an air fryer and boiling water tap to Netflix and the hot tub. Plenty of wood for use on the wood burner, which helped to warm up after a dip in the hot tub. The location is down narrow country lRead moreanes, but thats expected of Devon and did not stop us from exploring the local area every day. Thank you again! Hide

We stayed over Christmas which was wonderful! The house was decorated, had everything we needed, and the comfy sofa and fireplace were ideal in front of the TV (great for the Christmas food coma). It was immaculate, plenty of logs for the fire, comfortable and whilst the hot tub wasnt the strongest it was lovely to have. Thank you to the owners andRead more we will be aiming to visit again as it was the perfect Christmas week! Thank you! Hide

Gorgeous place with everything you need for a relaxing break. The downstairs is open plan and the garden is totally enclosed so you can relax in the hot tub knowing your dog cant escape! It is located within half an hours drive of several dog friendly beaches and pubs - we really appreciated the recommendations left by the owners. It was really warRead morem when we were there so we didnt take advantage of the log burner but I imagine it would be really cosy in winter months! Hide

The cottage is in a lovely rural location with owls hooting & swallows & martens swooping over. The little lanes leading to the property are a joy & an escape from the busy main roads

Really clean and comfortable, very much home from home. Spacious, impeccably clean and the extras such as hot tub were perfect for after a days walking. You cant do much from the accommodation, but a short drive to lots of fabulous beaches so well located to explore the coast of north Devon.

A beautiful accommodation with everything you need to make a home away from home. The jacuzzi was the icing on the cake. The owners are friendly and helpful. A bit of a drive down one way tracks but worth it for a great place to stay.

Our most relaxed holiday ever. With our son's dog first time. Worried how to cope. They are used to dog/not dog - perfectly. Dogs stay downstairs and everything starts spotless and is easy to clean. Facilities second to none/all working, includes: log fire/heating, Iron/board/dressing gowns/slippers/all kitchen utensils and equipment (very modern -Read more including water heater, microwave/full oven) and of course hot tub. Parking outside door. Perfect hosts always available not nosey. Do it. Hide
