About the property

Barn Conversion in Goodleigh, Barnstaple, North Devon

Enjoying a rural village location, The Byre-Cross Farm is an ideal stay for those wishing to relax in a slice of traditional Devon, yet with all the modern conveniences of contemporary living. With its tucked away central village location, you are just a stroll away from the village pub that serves up locally produced ales and food throughout the day. Enjoy some spectacular views just a short walk from the property for any budding photographer, painter or walker taking in the sites as you look down the valley over Barnstaple and up the river Taw out to sea. Some of the most awe inspiring views and walks can also be found on the rugged Exmoor National Park, and along the North Devon coastline, littered with miles and miles of unspoilt golden sandy beaches. The principle North Devon market town of Barnstaple is just 2 miles by car and offers a wealth of local and national high street shopping brands, as well as a multi-screen cinema, theatre and super bowl plus, a 12 court tennis complex

Comfortable & Quiet Location

Pro's: Nice comfortable spacious accommodation in quiet location, friendly owner. Would stay again, recommended.

Cons: Wifi limited to 10GB/month - not much for a family with multiple devices. Oven and pans could be cleaner.

A charming cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time staying at the Byre - it is a perfect base for a holiday, close to local beaches & local attractions yet in a perfectly quiet unspoilt country location. It is very comfortably furnished to a high standard, well equipped & the whole family, including our dogs, were made extremely welcome. We plan to return!
