The Cider Barn is a delight - perfect for holidays with four legged friends with secure paddocks on the doorstep for them to run free. You don't sacrifice your own creature comforts for theirs either - the barn is immaculately equipped, beautifully decorated and a sunny haven, with your own private lawn surrounded by tall trees.

This is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in. It is a stunning cottage, very comfortable and stylish...and they allow dogs! The cottage is very well located for the coast and surrounding countryside , there is a community shop under a mile away, and the owners are very helpful and friendly, we would really strongly recommend it.

The cider barn is a lovely modern converted building. No expense has been spared with regards to furnishing & equipment with everything being of a high standard. It was also really warm with no need for much heating or the fire even though it was November. They also left us a blanket for each dog to use & a bowl each which was a lovely touch too.

The cottage was outstanding on cleanliness and fully equipped with everything you would need for a perfect break. The location was perfect as the beaches and places to eat were reasonably close to the location which meant that our dogs could get worn out on the beach and then join us for food as most of the pubs and restaurants were dog friendly. WRead moree would fully recommend the cottage to family and friends. Hide
