Property Details

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, wood burner 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 the drive through 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 FANTASTIC WINTER WEEKEND IN DEVON by J Warrender, Exeter, 19.1.17 on February 12th 2017

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!

We Loved This Quirky Cottage by S Dowty on September 4th 2016

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.

It's Everything a Cottage Should Be by Anna Taylor on October 9th 2015

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.
