Barnfield Cottage Description

Barnfield is a warm, friendly and beautifully furnished holiday cottage nestling at the edge of the sleepy village of Bratton Fleming, a few miles North of Barnstaple on the edge of Exmoor. The big sand and surf beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton are all within a 30-minute drive.

This large thatched 17th Century listed cottage offers luxury self catering accommodation to groups and families (and their pets).

Although it has been carefully refurbished, the cottage boasts charming period features including the original inglenook fireplace, oak beams and flagstone floors.

Ground floor accommodation comprises a lounge with large inglenook fireplace, woodburner and double sofa-bed, a large, well-equipped kitchen diner with Aga-style stove, separate dining room, utility room, ground floor bedroom, large games-chillout room and an en suite shower room with basin and WC.

The ground floor bedroom has level access from the BBQ terrace and drive through folding French Windows. This has zip and link beds allowing it to be used as a double or twin room.

Upstairs are three good size bedrooms (one with en suite shower and basin) comprising 2 doubles and a twin (full-size bunk beds). and a family bathroom having a bath with shower over.

The secure garden contains two small lawns, patios, one with a BBQ and large outdoor table, flower beds and a drive suitable for parking 2-3 cars. It lies on a quiet lane (a Sustrans National Cycle Route) which leads to an abundance of country and village walks.

The cottage is pet friendly. We'll even provide a temporary dog tag (with a local contact number), spare bowl and lead, throws for the furniture, and details of dog friendly local beaches and walks.

Families with young children and infants are also welcome and cared for with facilities such as cots, highchairs, baby monitors, plug guards, cutlery, crockery and more.

For further information please phone,e-mail or visit our website (this has an online booking option).

a Perfect Place

The most beautiful, quintessentially English, "chocolate box" cottage - the perfect place to escape at any time of the year.

It's Everything a Cottage Should Be

I've been staying at Barnfield Cottage for a number of years - and I feel my shoulders drop as soon as I turn into the driveway. It is everything a cottage should be - beautiful thatched roof, wood burning fire for the evenings, hand-built kitchen and the most gorgeous Aga. I can't recommend Barnfield enough.

Wow - Exactly What We wanted!

Our first impression was "Wow!" and that is exactly what we were looking for when booking a week's holiday. We weren't disappointed! Bratton Fleming is a lovely village and a great choice and location for days out.

We Loved This Quirky Cottage

We loved this quirky cottage, where the owners have generously stocked the house with childrens' toys, beach essentials, sports equipment , utensils and we have had a wonderful time here. Situated close to Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay and Combe Martin beacheds it is also well positioned to enjoy the beautiful countryside.

We all had a fabulous time during our stay and thought the character and style of Barnfield was beautiful. I had never cooked with a stove before but soon got to grips – it really is the ‘centre’ of the home. The bonus of my parents staying downstairs and not having to tackle the ascent each evening was very much appreciated by them!

Just a quick message to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Barnfield Cottage. We had a truly wonderful weekend and the setting and the cottage itself were absolutely beautiful. We have already recommended it to friends and very much hope to be back in the future.

We had a wonderful trip and the house was great. Exactly what we had hoped for and the welcome basket and extra baby supplies were a lovely touch. It was beautifully decorated and felt very homely so thank you.

Thank you so much for providing such a well-kept cottage which certainly felt like home. Lovely village and great access to coastal walks. What a great place to send off 2016!

We had a very enjoyable stay, felt very at home and relaxed with everything we could possibly need – and more! We made the most of the dry weather– a circular walk around Lynton and Valley of the Rocks, a walk over Countisbury Headland to the Lighthouse and down to Heddon’s Mouth. Lovely meal at the Black Venus in Challacombe. Overall a fantastic weekend. Fantastic accommodation and a helpful, friendly host. Thanks for having us!

Many thanks for our stay in your fabulous cottage. The Boys really enjoyed the Games Room. We all had great nights in front of the woodburning stove. Beautiful countryside also a pleasure. We did one of the circular walks from the leaflet in the Welcome Book.

A Lovely 2-Family Holiday

Thank you for a lovely stay at Barnfield Cottage. The cottage was a perfect layout for two+ families. Great location central to all the attractions we wanted to visit. We were very grateful for all the children’s items – cot, basket of useful items, toys and books. Thank you for the delicious cake, crisps, biscuits and wine on arrival – a lovely surprise! Hope to visit again soon.
