“Peaceful!!!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

It was a very pleasant stay!!! My son had a great time. He loves the countryside and the game console was a bonus, as he seemed write at home! Shame the stay was so short and hope one day, we will return!!!

“The perfect country escape”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We visited The Byre for a 4 night mid--week break. The cottage is furnished to an incredible standard and is very cozy. The hot tub is exactly what is needed with fantastic views over the countryside.
We was made to feel very welcome and enjoyed the bottles of local cider that was waiting for us.

I highly recommend visiting the Prince of Wales pub in Holcombe, is about 20 min walk and food is incredible and staff very welcoming.

We will hopefully be booking a return visit.

“Congenial host, all creature comforts and superb location”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Highly recommend this home from home with a lovely view. We had decent weather so made the most of the outdoor eating area. Being mid way between Sidmouth and Minehead both coasts were thoroughly explored as was the tow path at the bottom of the lane. Thank heavens for the hot tub to soak away the aches and pains. The dog was also suitably happy if exhausted. Special thanks to the thoughtful host.

“A lovely getaway!”

We (2 couples) stayed at the Byre back in April this year for 2 nights. The cottage is beautifully furnished and has a real home from home feel to it. Everything you could need is provided for you, even a Wii console in the smaller bedroom!

There is a lovely walk just down the lane to the canal path which is nice and relaxed.

On arrival we were greeted by a welcome bottle of cider each and a cake, which we all thought was a special touch.

A big thank you to Tim the owner who was extremely helpful and was quick to respond to any questions we had.

The views are stunning & you are not at all overlooked. The hot tub is fantastic and we spent a lot of time taking in the views from it!

We absolutely loved it here, so much so that we are making a return visit in October for my sister's and I 30th birthday and we cannot wait!

Definitely recommend The Byre to anyone looking for a break away with beautiful views, amazing hot tub and peace and quiet! :)
