Posted by John and Maxine on Feb 10th, 2011Robert & Veronica are the friendliest of couples and went out of their way to ensure that our stay at Bartridge Farm Cottage was and enjoyable one.
Despite the somewhat adverse weather, probably only to be expected in November, we had a really lovely relaxing week enjoying the warm and cosy comforts of the cottage and the additional pleasure of the private use of the quite marvellous indoor heated swimming pool.
Robert was most forthcoming with advice and guidance regarding local and not so local dining facilities and any future guests who follow his advice will surely find that their appetites are well met at a price to suit their own individual pocket.
My partner and I could not fault our time spent at Bartridge in any shape or form and we would most heartily recommend it to anyone who is seeking exceedingly comfortable country accommodation in that locality in the future.
Personally we fully intend paying a return visit in 2011 and would like to take this opportunity to wish Robert & Veronica every success for the future.

Posted by Duncan, Claire, Adam on Feb 10th, 2011Location - superb.
Hosts - very welcoming.
Local food - numerous pubs but once we found the excellent Butchers in Barnstaple, we cooked for ourselves.
We booked another holiday here within two weeks of our last stay
Posted by The Stevens family on Feb 10th, 2011We have visited Bartridge Farm again and again as it is the perfect location and has everything you need for a relaxing, but active family holiday. It is set in a beautiful location with a hot tub looking over a stunning valley. The pool is fantastic and is available whenever you want to use it. On arrival the owners have taken the trouble to unpack the online grocery shopping (including chilling the wine!) and lit the woodburner so from the moment you arrive, you can relax into the holiday. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful, offering plenty of advice on beaches, walks and restaurants, however they are not in any way obtrusive. The location is stunning and is within easy reach (driving) of Barnstaple, beaches, lovely walks and we have even visited south devon on day trips - so overall a great base for exploring the whole region. The indoor swimming pool also means when the weather is bad it is easy to entertain the children. We have raved about this place to all our friends. A fantastic holiday all round
Posted by admin on Feb 11th, 2011My husband took me here for a birthday treat and it turned out to be the absolute icing on the cake! We were not expecting the cottage to be so exceptional. It catered for an entire family and there was nothing missing for a perfect stay. The cottage and indoor pool were well heated and we found our stay so cosy that we failed to explore the beautiful scenery. However, we had the perfect view from the window. We found some great eating places in Barnstaple which wasn't too far. And finally we got had the most beautiful experience watching the stars in the night... that truelly was magical! More...

Posted by Tim, Sally, William and Charlotte Ablethorpe on Sep 20th, 2011Many thanks for a great weeks holiday the Cottage was just perfect for us and the children and the use of the pool was a great way to finish of our days touring the North Devon Coast. Our Boy William’s confidence of going swimming has improved no end, to the point that when we got home he was expecting to go swimming!

My wife and I stayed here with our 7month baby boy and have to say its a great relaxing few days. The heated pool was fantastic and the hot tub at 38 degrees with the gorgeous view ahead is simply to die for. For all you who are going anytime soon try to get out to Simonsbath, and Lynton Cliff as the view there really is Spectacular.
Living in West Yorkshire does mean its a long drive down especially having to stop to see to baby (5hours without stops)but We will defintaley be popping down again.
Rob and Veronica are great hosts, very polite, helpful and hospitable. Thank you guys

Posted by Sean, Andrea, Olivia & Calan on Jul 8th, 2012We have had a wonderful time at Bartridge Cottage - beautiful location, lovely hosts, cosy cottage, addictive hot-tub, not too bad weather (!) and, well, what can we say about the pool - perfect! We cannot wait to come back ( hopefully next time the sky will be a little less cloudy for the star gazing !!) thank you for a great holiday.
Posted by Sharon, Andy and Emma Nind on Aug 13th, 2012What a fantastic week weve just had at Bartridge Farm cottage.
On arrival we were greeted by homemade scones, cream and jam, delicious and very welcome after a 5 hour journey.
The cottage was fantastic! We enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub daily, enjoying the fabulous views at the same time. One of our hightlights was using the hot tub at night watching the stars. The cottage was extremely cosy, it really was a home from home.
Robert and Veronica were lovely hosts and Robert's advice was very helpful and we had some amazing days out as a result.
All in all a great holiday - we will definitely be going back!
Thank you again Robert and Veronica

Posted by Peter Holley on May 4th, 201310th Anniversary of coming here since 2003 as always a great time with the great scenery and stunning views over the valley. As always Robert and Veronica were great hosts and we enjoyed the luxury of the relaxing swimming pool. We have enjoyed some great walks down here whether they be along the Devon coast, Exmoor or Dartmoor. Always the countryside is stunning and we have enjoyed great nights out in pubs as well as cream teas on walks. All in all it has been a brilliant time and we give great thanks to our hosts across the years. Looking forward to coming again soon

Posted by The Veal family on May 27th, 2013Just back today from a fantastic weekend staying in the cottage. The views from the cottage are so stunning, it really is the most relaxing place.
The kids had a great time in the pool and the hot tub was great. There is also a lovely garden behind the cottage with swings where the kids could play.
The weather was superb and the owners are such a lovely couple who were on hand to provide pub recommendations for dining and days out.
I'm just about to book our next visit as can't wait to go back.
Thanks for a great stay.
The Veal family.
