Char Cider Barn is a fantastic property away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It's a beautiful cottage with lots of local materials from the farm used in its construction. Locally there is lots to do and the beaches are only a few miles away.

We had a lovely stay at this cottage despite the changeable weather! Perfect base for walks straight from the door or a short drive to the coast and the wonderful South West costal path. Relaxing and very comfortable. The owner is so friendly and welcoming, on hand if needed but not intrusive at all.

This is a lovely converted cider barn. The only downside is that it was a little remote for us and we had to drive everywhere. The roads are all single track which made things a bit difficult. However saying that it was ideal for our 3 dogs. Lovely property, very peaceful.

Reviewed by Nicola 10th August 2018

We couldn't have asked for a more peaceful location but because of where the cottage is (on a farm in the middle of the countryside) the lanes leading to it were very narrow and bendy making it difficult if anything was coming in the opposite direction.
