We were a group of 8 celebrating 2 birthdays and booked Barncastle for the May Day Bank Holiday weekend. The whole weekend was superb. Barncastle itself is a lovely house, with everyone provided, including the things like washing up liquid, dishwasher tabs, shower gel, face clothes, hairdryers and many other essentials that other self catering properties do not seem to provide. There was a beautiful Victoria sponge waiting for us, along with a jar of home made marmalade, milk, local apple juice, tea, coffee, sugar and a lovely bottle of Prosecco in the fridge. Everything was great, including the weather, which was wall to wall sunshine all weekend. There were also sunloungers and cushions provided and a very well stocked kitchen with crockery, cutlery etc. Nothing had been forgotten. I cannot recommend this house enough. We have stayed in many properties over the years and this is by far the best any of us have ever stayed in. We hope to be back sometime.
What an amazing time we have just had at Barncastle! Accommodation is outstanding, so spacious. Plenty of living space for 8 adults and 2 children.
Lots of outdoor space, barbecues, picnic equipment and delightful personal touches like fresh flowers and homemade cake! Too many lovely touches to mention.
Hoping for a return trip next year!
Wow! What a place. Stunningly refurbished old barn. Sympathetically restored.
All mod cons, 5 double bedrooms. 4 bathrooms, two with baths.
Beautiful living space, log burners, with logs provided for 1-2 days. Just to warm the cockles after a long walk.
Thank you so much for the homemade Victoria sponge, and marmalade. Really yummy. Took some home for my kids, loved it.
Real treat to be there with my girlfriends, just enjoyed each other’s company.
Thank you so much. Will be back
We stayed here as a family with grandparents to grandchildren, 10 in total. Barncastle was faultless. There was plenty of space, with no one feeling crowded or on top of each other. We had many plans to go but the children wanted to stay in the 'holiday house' and play in the garden! Communication was excellent, the extras were faultless and everything had been thought of. A wonderful time with lots of memories made, thank you.
Barncastle was the perfect location for preparation for our daughter's wedding. We arranged the flowers for the venue in the huge farmhouse kitchen. The bridal party were in the cottage and the groom's family in the farmhouse. After the wedding we had a weekend party for the families to get to know each other. The bedrooms were all beautifully decorated and furnished. There was ample crockery cutlery and glassware for the various meals that were prepared. The views were outstanding and we were very lucky to have such fantastic weather - the blossom was appearing on the trees and there were carpets of daffodils - the homemade cakes on arrival were also a big hit!
