About the Owner

Paul and Anne-Louise love North Devon and would like to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We live in the grounds about 200m from the holiday cottage so for any queries or advice, come and see us.

We have two boys; Alexander (4 years) and Elliot (3 years) as well as two spaniels; Monty and Bertie.

In our spare time, we enjoy going the many beaches close by with the kids and dogs.

A fabulous holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

Have just got back from a weeks holiday at Sheldon Barn and what a fabulous time we had!

The Barn itself is lovely and of course the swimming pool and hot tub were great additions for us (a family with 2 young children).

Great location, great accommodation, great amenities and also great hosts - thank you Anne-Louise, Paul and your lovely boys for making us feel welcome. We hope to visit again.

Ideal Getaway in North Devon

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed here for 5 nights on a much needed pre-Christmas break, the perfect getaway.

Dog friendly, close to some great beaches (even in the rain!) and very relaxing.

Lovely surroundings, fantastic pool and superb accommodation. Sheldon has been finished to a very high standard.

We were made to feel very welcome and then left to it, thanks for a great stay.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We booked the sheldon barn for our family of 4 plus dog. We couldn't have asked for more from our holiday. Anne-Louise and Paul were lovely welcoming hosts with a basket full of goodies on our arrival.

The barn itself is lovely, really high quality finish with everything you would need for your stay. It is also really warm and cosy and the beds are so comfortable I would quite happily swap my own bed from home!

We used the pool everyday with our young children and cannot tell you how pleased we were with it. It is fantastic, again, exceptionally high quality and you can tell that a lot of money has been (and continues to be) spent at High Park and it was appreciated by all of us.

Thankyou for having us, we will let everyone know about our stay.

The Ideal Holiday Let

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sheldon Barn for a weekend in September, located in a quiet and beautiful setting it was ideal for us to visit family in Westward Ho.

The barn was clean, comfortable and well equipped for all our needs, and the underfloor heating kept us warm in the evenings. If this was not enough we had the use of an indoor pool and hot tub.

For a long or short break we would recommend Sheldon Barn as the place to stay.

Anne-Louise & Paul could not have made us more welcome.

Thank you both. Paul & Lyn.

Location

From the Owner

Indoor swimming pool and a 6 seater hot tub for our guests to enjoy. We're living in the countryside but only minutes from the beach so it is really the best of both worlds. Beautiful views from our property and you can't get better than North Devon on a sunny day.
