We are Lydia and Chris along with our two children Maisy and Rufus. We have owned these wonderful barns for the past 3 years and just love the peace and tranquility this part of Devon provides. It's a far cry from our previous careers in the wine industry....but we still get to enjoy that side of it with a glass or two watching the sun go down of the cliffs....it's a hard life !
We would love to welcome you to come and experience our very special part of the Devon/Cornwall coastline
Lydia underwood purchased this barn in 2013
Direct access onto the South Coast footpath and its miles and miles are gorgeous uninterrupted vistas.
Peace, quiet and no light pollution make the night sky's a must see
we all enjoyed the stay in our barn. Everything was there and we felt like home. Our son Lukas (11 years old) was very happy to find some friends in the nice and very green garden around the house: two ducks and three chicken. The beautiful landscape together with the perfect accommodation made us a great week. For sure we will recommend this lovely place to our friends and of course hope to return once more. We will keep the memories of these very special days with us.

We had a fabulous short break in North Devon staying at the gorgeous Southole Barns. We stayed in Clovelly Barn which was stylish & clean with excellent facilities - a real home from home. We loved the added thoughtful touches of a cream tea awaiting our arrival (delicious), the DVD library & the honesty bar & freezer full of delcious meals should you decide on an evening in! Our host, Sheldon, was exceptionally helpful & gave us great recommendations for local pubs & places of interest - all of which we did & enjoyed. The Barns are a very short walk away from the stunning Devon Coast path & we defy anyone one wont enjoy taking a bottle of wine up to the bench over looking the bay to watch the sun go down!! We have recomended Southole to friends & will definately return in the future.
My family and I enjoyed a lovely week-long break here in early Summer 2012. We were impressed with Greenway Barn: it was nicely fitted out and very comfy. The log burner was a nice touch and we liked the small, private garden too. The owner was friendly and welcoming and evidently puts a lot of time into keeping the grounds in good order. The place feels really quite remote, but made a good base from which to explore the local area. Even when the weather was a bit iffy and we didn't get out much, the Barn was a nice place in which to relax.
The time at Clovelly barn was one of our best vacations in the last years. The beautiful landscape, the apartments, the people there and even the very good weather was together a mixture of impressions, we never had before. Our little daughter (8 years) said, that this trip was the best vacation she ever had in her life. Also thank you for all your support, so we felt immediately home and the quietness, that helped to relax. we will keep the time there always in memory as very wonderful and good time.
Reinhard and family.
We wanted to say a Huge Thank You for being so welcoming and for all your help during our stay. We thought your barns were fantastic and we will definitely be back. Such a remote spot but ideal for peaceful exploration of such a fabulous, dramatic coastline. And being able to sip champagne whilst watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean was simply stunning! We want to share your very special place with so many more people so look out for us taking over the whole place at some point in the future!
Many, Many Thanks again
Claire, Jim & Joshua Lane

Southole Barns are located in the small hamlet of Southole within the Parish of Hartland and 1 1/2 miles from unspoilt Welcombe Mouth Beach. The village of Welcombe is less than 1 mile away with its Church, Village Hall, Pottery, our Community Shop and a Thatched Public House 'The Old Smithy Inn' which is well known for good food within the area.
The Barns are 3 miles from the A39 (Atlantic Highway) which gives easy access to the North Devon and Cornwall coastlines, to seaside resorts such as Bude, Widemouth Bay and legendary Tintagel as well as King Arthur's Castle. The picturesque fishing port of Padstow, home to Rick Stein's restaurant is also along this coast.
