    “This was our second visit to the Old Byre.”

    The cottage is very cosy and has all the facilities you need to make your stay a comfortable one. Jill and Simon are very welcoming and friendly as are the lovely chickens and cockerel. Our stay this time was accompanied by Storm Dennis but this didn’t stop us from getting around as there are many places to visit nearby. My love of antiques was met by visiting Ashburton which is full of lovely shops offering a variety of vintage and antiques. I would certainly recommend the Old Byre to anyone who loves walking, with the moors on the doorstep, and the amazing accommodation Jill and Simon provide.
