What a beautiful cottage, perfect for a couple looking for a relaxing and peaceful break. Lovely location and outside space, the interior decoration is gorgeous and this cottage had everything we needed (even an umbrella, which unfortunately we did need!) Hosts Anna and Chris were so helpful and sent us lots of information on the local area so that we could plan ahead and book restaurants etc. We look forward to returning soon!

The cottage is immaculate and superbly furnished. It is a short drive from the local inn which was friendly and the hub of the community. The beaches are lovely in north Devon and plenty are dog friendly. We had a great time and thank Anna & Chris
Andrew & Sharon – The Cottage – Cotswolds June 24
The barn was just lovely, in immaculate condition and so well equipped we couldn’t think of anything more we could possibly have wanted/needed. The location is good, and the setting idyllic. The hot tub was welcome after a day walking. A great experience.
Graham & Kate – The Barn – France June 24
Anna is lovely and a fabulous communicator. The Granary was just perfect and beautifully decorated. Enjoyed the hot tub and explored the local area which was great. Highly recommended
Karyn & Jan – The Granary – London June 24
Anna and Chris are perfect hosts as is their very stylish Granary. Everything you need is there for a short break or a longer holiday. North Devon is great lots to do and see.
Colin & Aly – The Granary – Devon June 24
The most amazing little cottage. What a great find, you’ve really thought of everything. We had wall to wall sunshine so it was heavenly. Sandymouth beach is stunning. We spent the whole day there and walked to Bude. 5* xx
Mr & Mrs Adams – The Cottage – Leicestershire June 24
A wonderful week – The Barn is so beautiful and cosy Loved all the special finishing touches From bird watching in the garden to exploring the area we had a wonderful time Thank you xx
Helen Ed Julie Sam & Layla – The Barn – Hampshire May 24
Simply perfect. We travelled together as a family of three couples, so having three superking bedrooms with three shower/bathrooms was ideal for us and exactly what we wanted when considering accommodation in Devon. The property is just as described on the website and very well looked after. It is spotlessly clean and well equipped with tasteful furnishings and extra little touches which make it a special place to stay. The outside space has a hot tub and sunloungers, with a dining table and chairs – perfect for alfresco relaxing. We had beautiful weather in mid May yet had the added benefit of the logburner for chilly evenings. Anna and Chris are really welcoming whilst giving their guests complete privacy. We all loved The Barn at Great Eckworthy and can’t wait to return – it is simply perfect for us and ticks all our boxes.
Nicki Craven and family – The Barn – Hampshire May 24
We had a fantastic 4 night break in the Granary, Great Eckworthy. Anna and Chris gave us a lovely, warm welcome on our arrival and showed us around the property and where to find everything. The attention to detail such as fresh flowers on the window sill and table, the welcome tray with farm eggs and scones, clotted cream etc, and even a map of the local area and tide timetable showed how much care has gone into making this the perfect holiday getaway. The bed was very comfortable, the toiletries were all local and eco friendly and the large dressing room gave us plenty of space. A super property hosted by lovely owners – thank you so much Anna and Chris.
Mr & Mrs Pickup – The Granary – Gloucester May 24
Thank you once again for a lovely holiday. Chris and Anna you have gone above and beyond.

Nigel & Jane – The Cottage – Cheshire – May 24
The Granary was beautifully decorated and spotless. Particularly enjoyed having a dressing room and watching the little birds around the property. We had a very relaxing stay.
Mr & Mrs Smith – The Granary – Wiltshire May 24
Wow! We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome from the Owners, Anna and Chris. The property is impeccable, spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. Provided with gorgeous linens, comfortable beds and luxurious toiletries. The owners provide a wealth of information for guests, sharing details of local events taking place during your stay. We wouldn’t hesitate to visit again!
Lisa & Martin – The Barn – Cornwall May 24
Anna and Chris made us feel extremely welcome. The house was immaculate and wonderfully furnished. We had a really lovely time visiting all the local villages and relaxing in the evening with a dip in the jacuzzi. We have booked to go back next year.
Aileen & Michael – The Barn – Wiltshire May 24
Gorgeous property, so cosy & comfortable, it really is a credit to you Anna & Chris. Absolutely everything has been thought of and all those extra touches made for a wonderful relaxing stay. Thank you both.
Lisa & Martin – The Granary – Cornwall May 24
We loved every moment Great Eckworthy allowed. Perfect accommodation for three couples who want privacy, exceptional accommodation in and outdoor, with five star attention to detail. Many thanks from all of us.
Cheryl, Mark, Ben, Zoe, Tim & Lucy – The Barn – Lancashire & Bristol May 24
Thankyou so much to Anna and Chris. We had a wonderful week. The cottage was simply stunning, luxuriously furnished and equipped. Located in a beautiful, tranquil valley. For us the urge to check to check the news, the phone and emails totally disappeared, instead the hard choices were whether to take a pre-dinner stroll or have another dip in the hot tub. We stayed in The Barn which sleeps six. Immaculate. Three stunning bedrooms, each with it’s own bathroom. Gorgeous views and utter peace. Anna and Chris sent us information about the area in advance so that we could book restaurants and think about places to visit. They welcomed us warmly, were available if needed but not remotely intrusive. By the time we left, it honestly felt as if we were leaving friends. If you need somewhere to recharge your batteries, this is the place! Heaps to do locally, but if like us, you might find that relaxing in and around the fabulous house is enough.
Ginny & David – The Cottage – Hertfordshire May 24
Thank you, Anna & Chris, for a fabulous stay at The Granary. The attention to detail is second to none. This is by far the most luxurious holiday home we have stayed in. A real escape from the everyday.
Lisa & David – The Granary – Stafford April 24
I had the most wonderful stay. The peace and quiet was exactly what I needed. It is so tranquil and relaxing, and I will definitely be coming back. Thank you for the most amazing break.
N Rodham – The Granary – Weston S Mare April 24
What a beautiful cottage! Anna and Chris have thought of everything to make our stay magical. You have been great hosts; nothing is too much and very friendly. Thank you so much.
Katie & Gav – The Granary -Cornwall April 24
Anna and Chris were prefect hosts. The Granary is a wonderful home in the North Devon countryside. The space is beautifully designed and functions really well. We particularly loved the hot tub and the log burner – both great for a winters evening. Whilst we were working remotely so did not get the chance to spend as much time in the local area, what we saw and did was great. Recommend to all!
Yan & Lisa -The Granary – Greenwich Feb 24
The Barn is lovely, comfy, well appointed house with every amenity. It was a pleasure to stay at. Chris and Anna made us more than welcome. I would thoroughly recommend.
Alyson & Richard – The Barn Falmouth Feb 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.
Jackie & David Cousins – The Barn – Buckinghamshire Jan 24
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.
Bradley & Julie – The Cottage – Dorset Dec 23
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.
Adam & Jennifer – The Barn – Reading Sep 23
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.
Carolyn & Martin – The Barn – New Zealand Nov 23
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.
Kate & Steve – The Cottage – Broadstone Oct 23
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 – The Barn – 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.
