This accommodation is a newly-completed barn conversion, and the work has been carried out to an extremely high standard, with clearly a lot of investment having been made in order to create very high quality accomodation. The decor is very impressive and all of the equipment and utensils etc., are of a very high quality. The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful, and the location is very quiet, with excellent views.
The owners were kind enough to let me see inside the other two cottages, which are due to be completed in the next few weeks. They are similarly well-appointed.
I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who wants a break in a fantastic cottage in a quite location, or as a base to explore North Devon.
Appledore Barn is absolutely stunning. Having been recently renovated from the original barn the attention to detail in the building, decorating and furnishing is incredible. They have merged some of the original features of the barn into a modern and clean feel. Adele and Richard (who live in the farm house next to the barn) couldn't have been more helpful. The location is brilliant, feels so remote and quiet but within 10 minutes from the local town, South Molton. I can't recommend Appledore Barn enough!
This cottage has clearly been renovated from a character barn to a delightful cottage with the comfort of the holiday maker in mind. It has stunning views across the country side, a high standard of kitchen and dining implements and clearly the furniture and decor has been provided bespoke with attention to detail.
The cottage is walking distance to the local pub, but has a feel of country remoteness. It is accessed by a long, well maintained drive meandering through fields of sheep (spring lambs when I was there). I drove to the north Devon beaches easily and also visited the indoor market at South Molton, with its range of local produce and antiques.
Will definitely return. Appledore Barn is one of three cottages adjacent to the small holding farm where the owners (Adele and Richard) live. You can roam the fields of ducks, chickens, lambs and sheep, pigs and wildlife that the cottage is on. They let me feed the pigs and collect eggs!!
Wonderful stay in Appledore Barn, one of the best holiday cottages I have ever stayed in. The accomodation has everything you could possibly need and is extremely well presented. Beautifull contemporary furnishings alongside original features made this a really special place. The views are amazing and the hosts can't do enough to make sure you have a wonderful,holiday in a peaceful location. Really good quality welcome pack was an added bonus and a home cooked meal can be arranged for your arrival, what a great idea.
