What an outstanding cottage. Beautiful and tastefully decorated. The owners were lovely!! Would highly recommend. April 24
Katie & Gavin Hughes – April 24
Simply lovely. This was our second stay, the first with the new owners, Anna and Chris. Nothing was too much trouble. They have improved an already fabulous property. There are three good sized rooms and bathrooms so can easily suit six people with ease. The decor is lovely and high-end. It was secluded which suited us and the dog and had the added benefit of a secure field for the dog and an outside patio and jacuzzi for us. Although they couldn’t control the weather for us we had a great time as it’s only a few miles to the beach (Westward Ho!, Instow and Appledore) and the dog-friendly pubs (The Bell Inn – Parkham for Sunday lunch, the Instow Arms – Instow and The Beaver Inn – Appledore). Even if you don’t want to drive there is plenty to do at the property, including walks, BBQ, nature watching and star gazing at night. We can’t wait to return. March 24

Thank you to our hosts for a fabulous New Year Break. The house was immaculate and very comfortable for 6 adults. The views from the cottage of the countryside were superb.

Wow! 5* We would highly recommend a stay at this property. We loved: The warm welcome from the hosts The thoughtful hamper with high quality extras, many locally sourced. The accommodation with a pre-lite fire on arrival for that truly warm welcome. The Cottage was spotlessly clean and had all that we needed for a cosy stay over the Christmas period, including wonderful Christmas decorations. The birds and the views are beautiful. The hot tub was such a treat. Fabulous hosts, friendly, helpful and so kind. What’s not to like? The only downfall was, we had to leave.

Our stay at The Barn in Great Eckworthy through Classic Cottages was nothing short of enchanting. From the warm welcome by hosts Anna and Chris to the charming tour upon arrival, their hospitality created a welcoming atmosphere that made us feel right at home. Despite a minor mishap with our Yorkshire terrier Tolby, Anna and Chris handled the situation with admirable patience, showcasing their dedication to ensuring a pleasant stay. The cottage itself, with its classic charm, was a cozy retreat that perfectly complemented the picturesque surroundings of Great Eckworthy. One highlight of our stay was indulging in the hot tub underneath the starlit sky. It added a touch of magic to our evenings, turning a simple soak into a truly celestial experience. Classic Cottages, coupled with the unique charm of The Barn, provided the perfect backdrop for relaxation and creating lasting memories. In summary, we wholeheartedly recommend Classic Cottages and The Barn for those seeking a comfortable and welcoming getaway. Anna and Chris’s exceptional hospitality, combined with the starlit hot tub experience, made our stay truly unforgettable. We eagerly anticipate our next visit for another round of relaxation and stargazing.

The cottage was a dream. It was a 5 star home away from home, beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Anna and Chris are the ultimate hosts and nothing was any trouble. I would highly recommend Great Eckworthy The Barn, especially with your dogs as they are treated as well as we were. Would love to come back again.

We received the warmest of welcomes at Gt Eckworthy from Anna and Chris. The personal touch really does go a long way! I would describe The Cottage as having the WOW factor. Immaculately presented, a stunning location, so quiet and peaceful. It’s an absolute pleasure to return to every day after our trips exploring. The quality of the furnishings and comfort offered to guests is exceptionally high. Compliments to the housekeeping for their endeavours, simply outstanding. We relaxed inside in comfort, enjoyed outside meals on the deck in glorious Autumn sunshine surrounded by Anna’s beautiful tubs and baskets and the sparkling and spotlessly clean hot tub was the icing on the cake! So many lovely places to visit close by, especially RHS Rosemoor. Appledore and Instow. Sandymouth Bay was delightful. We loved every second of our stay. Don’t hesitate just book, you too will be WOWED!! Thank you Anna and Chris for sharing Great Eckworthy with us and for the delicious treats , so kind of you! Perfection achieved.

Having stayed in numerous holiday cottages over many years, The Barn was the most comfortable and and well-appointed, luxurious holiday cottage that we’ve ever stayed in. It offers everything we could have wished for and more, it certainly deserves it’s 5-star rating. Anna and Chris are so welcoming and offer many hints as to eateries and local places of interest. For example, we enjoyed a great evening and meal at the Farmers Arms at Woolsery, an excellent pub restaurant, serving high quality food, with a good wine list. The idyllic rural location of The Barn has to be the icing on the cake. We will certainly be returning.
Mr & Mrs Chillistone – Portishead Sep 23
This cottage is the best rental we have stayed in. We have been doing this for over 50 years in the West Country. Anna and Chris have put together an amazing package of thoughtful and delightfully crafted places to stay. You will not be disappointed, just go ahead and book.
