About Deborah

Steve and I moved into the main house in August 2015 and are enjoying learning about all the area has to offer. I have two grown up girls and Steve has three grown up boys, almost the Brady bunch! (A funny for those old enough to remember!). We were both brought up in North Kent and decided to move to Devon. Here we are, our dream come true, in this beautiful area.

Deborah purchased this barn in 2015

Why Deborah chose Torridge

My family brought me to Devon for a birthday treat, not far from where we live now. We stayed in a holiday let and had an amazing time. It made me realise this is what I wanted to do, to get away from the 'rat race'. We looked at so many properties with holiday lets and fell in love with this property. Just over a year later we had made it a reality...

What makes this barn unique

Free Wifi.

Free use of cot, high chair and safety gates.

Free essentials to start your holiday off without worry.

Central to many attractions.

Safe, large private garden.

Stunning views.

The barn is fantastic. Fully equipped, a real "Home from Home". Situated off the beaten track, ideal for a peaceful stay away from it all. Although secluded, only a short drive away from Torrington where we enjoyed a delightful cycle ride along the famous Tarka Trail. A little further will find you at Bideford and then on to Clovelly or Westward Ho!

We had a fabulous time and West Pennicknold Barn was an integral part of that.

If we were ever to revisit that part of Devon we would not hesitate to book the barn again.

Beautiful, spacious barn.

  • 5 of 5

The barn was beautifully clean, spacious and well-equipped. The welcome pack was gratefully received as we arrived quite late and a cup of tea was very welcome. The garden is very safe for children and as we had a one year old baby in the party, Deborah provided a cot, high chair and two stair gates which were a boon. We were able to pick apples from the garden, too. There are plenty of board games to play and a good selection of books. A lovely peaceful place to stay. My grand daughter Megan says the trees in the garden were beautiful.

Great chilled out two weeks at the lovely converted barn

  • 5 of 5

Had a great two weeks at the barn. Deborah and Steve were great hosts. Very welcoming and answered any questions that we had. Had a minor issue with the hot water but that got resolved very quickly. The barn has been very well converted to a high standard. The kitchen is well stocked and the lounge very comfortable. The bedrooms and beds are also comfy. The barn is in a quiet but beautiful part of Devon with Bude a 25 min drive away. If its quiet and relaxing your after then this is the place

A Self Catering GEM in lovely North Devon.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at West PENNICKNOLD Barn we were greeted by the lovely Deborah who had welcomed the first of our group of six, 2 daughters and husbands then my wife and I arrived after, the converted barn has been very well designed with bedrooms on the ground floor, day accommodation on the upper floor with lovely views across the Devon countryside. As we all come from a busy part of Essex and Kent it was so nice to be staying in a place in the country so quiet and peaceful which is within easy reach of the North Devon coast, Dartmoor and Cornwall just as a bonus for us we all went to Port Isaac where they were filming Doc Martin with Martin Clunes.

Well in a nutshell if you lead a very busy life like we all do and you would like some peace and quiet in lovely accommodation with location then look no further than West PENNICKNOLD Barn.

Beautiful barn in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

We visited West Penicknold as a family, grandparents, mum and dad and grandchildren. It was absolutely perfect for our requirements, the barn was spacious and the garden/paddock was just right for the children to play and the adults to relax. The barn was spotlessly clean and had everything you could want, including amazing views across the Devon countryside. Debbie and Steve were extremely helpful, freindly and very welcoming. We would recommend this to anyone who is wanting a relaxing holiday and who doesn't mind a drive (30 mins+) to the more popular Devon tourist destinations. Yes, I would certainly visit again.
