Southole Barns

Tucked away on the coastline in north-west Devon and close to the borders of Cornwall, Southole Barns is a haven of peace and tranquillity. 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 and coastline.

With the South West Coastal Path on your doorstep Southole Barns is an ideal retreat for nature lovers and walkers. To the south the path leads down to unspoilt Welcombe Mouth Beach, to the north the drama of the Hartland Peninsula unfolds before you. We’ll happily provide advice and guidance about walking routes and offer a pick-up/drop off service when possible.  

Southole Barns were built over 150 years ago and recently painstakingly and beautifully refurbished to form a courtyard of high quality, tastefully appointed and comfortable self-catering barn conversions. The courtyard is a pretty cobbled and paved centre piece, ideal for enjoying a morning coffee or sundowner. 

The property stands within acres of gardens and meadowland with a beautiful stream-fed pond attracting birds, dragonflies and deer. The communal gardens are the ideal place to unwind to the sounds and sights of nature and watch the sunset. At night, due to the total lack of light pollution, the stars are incredibly bright and you can often see the Milky Way.
