Pet friendly accommodation Pet Friendly


The Cider Barn has been renovated to an incredibly high standard by the talented and inspiring owner Deirdre Giles. The fixtures, fittings and furnishings have been chosen with such care and attention to detail and were all of top quality making this spacious, comfortable, immaculate accommodation a truly amazing place to stay with everything that was needed. The location is so peaceful with beautiful views across the garden and fields it is also within walking distance to Wembury beach and other coastal footpaths although transport to reach the shops is necessary. As a family of 6 we stayed for a week over the Xmas period and arrived to find that Deirdre had thoughtfully put up a beautifully fresh Xmas tree and other decorations also left us wine and a huge bowl of fruit. Deirdre lives in the adjoining farmhouse, she was so welcoming, helpful and kind yet never intrusive, it was really a pleasure to meet her. We had our Plymouth friends visit us during our stay and they were all in agreement with us that Cider Barn is without a doubt quite exceptional , it certainly has the WOW factor and worthy of the highest review and recommendation. Our sincere thanks to Deirdre for everything , we didn?t want to ever leave but we have taken so many wonderful memories with us of our Xmas at Cider Barn .
