Welcome to Southole Barns
Owners Chris and Lydia Underwood welcome you to come and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this fabulous part of the Devon/Cornish coastline.
Tucked away on the coastline in north-west of Devon and close to the border of Cornwall, Southole Barns is a haven for wildlife. Nestling in a secluded south facing valley in a designated Coastal Preservation Area, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Nature Conservancy Zone, the Barns enjoy amazing views amidst the timeless beauty of the North Devon countryside & coastline.
With the South West Coastal Path on your doorstep Southole Barns is an ideal retreat for nature lovers and walkers with pets welcome in both Clovelly and Smudgers Barns (see individual barns for details). To the south the path leads down to unspoilt Welcombe Mouth Beach, to the north the drama of the Hartland Peninsula unfolds before you... Here, high open moorland and ancient woodland give way to breathtaking seascapes, rugged coastline and coastal waterfalls tumbling from hanging valleys onto rocky shores. Yet, hop in the car and 25 minutes away are historic fishing villages, beach resorts and lots of entertainment for all the family including fantastic pubs (5 minute's drive away), restaurants and days out. The Eden Project and Plymouth are an hour and 15 away for days out, and boat trips to Lundy are a must. Padstow, Port Issac and Clovelly are all well under an hour away and theme parks such as The Big Sheep and Milky Way are less than half an hour away to keep the children happy too. Plenty to do, and plenty to not do if peace and relaxation are the order of the day.
The landscape and coastline are simply spectacular and at night, it is truly dark with the stars shining with an unfamiliar brilliance and if you're lucky you'll also see the Milky Way...
A place like no other...

Southole Barns were built over 150 years ago by Hartland monks and recently painstakingly & beautifully refurbished to form a courtyard of high quality, tastefully appointed and comfortable self-catering barn conversions. The courtyard is a magnificent cobbled and paved centre piece, filled with flower beds and borders and a luxurious hot tub.
The property stands within 2 acres of gardens and adjoining meadowland with a beautiful stream-fed pond attracting amazing wildlife. The courtyard garden with alfresco dining area is the ideal place to unwind to the sounds & sights of nature and watch the sun set, or find your own favourite place to relax.
We are open! It's so lovely to welcome all of our guests back and we wish you all the best holiday! Sadly the hot tub will remain out of use until further notice as it is a shared facility but everything else is ready to go!
This hideaway stands out as a sanctuary surrounded by unspoilt wilderness.
An oasis of peace and tranquility...
