Mead Barn Cottages are set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our holiday homes are full of character.
We are nestled in a small hollow in the hamlet of Mead, part of Welcombe and just over half a mile from the sea, on the border of Devon and Cornwall. We are about half way between Bude and Clovelly.
Mead Barn Cottages are very close to the South West coastal path with its access to high cliffs and secluded coves. The closest of these is Welcombe Mouth with its beautiful valley, stream and waterfall leading to the sea and beach which has dramatic rock formations, rock pools and sand so that you can explore, surf or build sandcastles.
There are many other coastal and country walks, both long and short through lanes, fields and wooded valleys and we provide walk itineraries based in Mead. The area is a paradise for walkers, dog owners and those wanting to relax. Within a short drive there are Sandy Beaches: at Sandy Mouth, Bude, Westward Ho! and Instow. Braunton, Croyde and Woolacombe are a little further. Whatever the weather there is plenty to do!
Mead is just 75 to 90 minutes from Jct 27 of the M5 and 5 minutes off the A39, which means that, while enjoying peace and tranquillity, the accommodation is ideally placed for exploring the whole of the North Devon and Cornwall coast and for excursions inland to the moors and picturesque villages and historically interesting towns.
There is so much to do that many visitors find a week not nearly long enough.
We have 5 barn cottages offering accommodation varying in size from 1 to 4 bedrooms and we offer discounts out of high season for groups of less than 4 in some of our cottages. All have well equipped kitchens with cooker, microwave oven, dishwasher, fridge freezers and pine dining furniture. The larger units have washing machines. The lounges are well furnished with colour TV’s, DVDs and Hi-Fi’s. The bedrooms are furnished with either kingsize or double beds (one four-poster) or are twin bedded. The barn cottages are well heated throughout and all power and heating is included. Bathrooms all have baths and showers and all bedding, kitchen linen and personal towels are included. The larger units have ground floor wet-rooms.
The peak season change over day is Friday; outside peak season we offer flexible arrival and departure days and breaks.
The barns are surrounded by mature gardens and we have a tennis court and games room offering table tennis and pool. There is also a laundry room with washing machine and tumble drier, a large private car park and outside children’s play area. We are open all year and offer week and longer stays and short breaks out of season.
