The Barn, a dog-friendly detached cottage sits alongside the owner’s cottage at Compton Bishop.
One well-behaved dog is welcome, and a second may also come by prior request.
It was our first time away with our dog, and he enjoyed the local walks. Thank you for a lovely weekend, we hope to return again, and will certainly highly recommend.Sykes Cottages – Nov 2018
The interior of the cottage is tastefully decorated, achieving a modern feel while still retaining the period character of the property.
The living room is very comfortably furnished, and has the luxury of a wood-burning stove which, together with the central heating, keeps the cottage cosy all year round.
The kitchen has all the mod cons, including an oven, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer. It also has a breakfast table, or you can eat in the dining room upstairs and enjoy the wonderful views over the nearby fields.
The good-sized double bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom, with shower, basin and WC. Bed linen and towels are included.
Free WiFi is provided for guests.
The private sunny courtyard has a table and chairs where you can relax after a busy day of dogwalking and exploring. It’s perfect to while away a restful afternoon or early evening with its cottage garden planting and south-facing aspect.
