Ivy Barn is a fantastic place to stay. The renovations have been completed to a very high standard and it has everything you could need for a short or a much longer break. Everywhere was clean and tidy. The downstairs bathroom is beautiful and the wet room shower is amazing. The ensuite upstairs only has a bath and taller guest need to be aware of how low the ceiling is.
The Barn is located up a small hill and is a 5 minute walk into Braunton for shops and restaurants. A 15 minute drive to Barnstable for more shopping and dining option and a 10 minute drive to croyde for a beautiful beach.
The owners were easy to deal with and prompt with their response to enquiries. Would highly recommend and will hopefully be back for another visit.
We love this part of Devon and return yearly, staying in Ivy Barn was an added bonus. The facilities and cleanliness were great. The garage with room for our boards and wetsuits especially helpful.
Our only issue was one of our party is 6 foot 6 - he found the upstairs sloping roof a bit of an issue at times! But it was still worth it.
Fab stay - would definitely return.
The Ivy Barn is well-appointed and modern inside. If you are tall you will have to mind your head in a few places upstairs. We enjoyed three nights there and found the kitchen to have all that we needed to cook our meals. Easy walking to everything, excellent butchers and bakers within a few blocks. We rented cycles from Otter Cycle hire and they were reasonably priced and the cycles allowed us to roam as far as Ilfracombe. We arrived by rail (at Barnstaple) and the taxi from the rail station to the Ivy Barn was easy. There is a spacious garage if you have a car, but this is also a great place to stay for those who prefer cycling or (long) walks.

" A lovely barn conversion. Everything you would want, beautifully clean and furnished. Been in many rented accommodations - this exceeds by far. Will definitely come again"
