3/6/ This is our third year at Pickwell Barton Cottage & we have had a fabulous holiday again. The cottage is so lovely with so many extra touches not usually found in self catering rentals. Thank you Jane for the care you lavish on your guest. The scenery in this area is breath taking and with the weather we have had this week, has been idyllic. We had so much fun on the beach, lots of nice outings and our grand children are counting the sleeps until we return next year. Thank you, Jane & Andrew.

24/6/ Biggest, Best, Closest to the sea place we have ever stayed at. 4th time we have stayed in Devon and it’s the best. Will try to come again!

15/7/ What a lovely country holiday home to stay in. Jane & Andrew had thought of and provided everything you could use. Even the weather was kind. A lovely farm and relaxed feeling, what more could we have wanted. Thank you both and thank North Devon for the lovely places to visit.
