Children Welcome!

Sand boats at Woolacombe

We’d like to think that Barnfield is a child friendly cottage. Children and babies of all ages are very welcome.  We hope we provide a range of ‘peace-of-mind’ facilities for those coming on holiday with babies and infants. We also understand how much additional luggage is necessary when travelling with young children, so we’ll try and save you a bit of space in your car.

There’s plenty for families with very young children to see and do in North Devon outside the school holidays. Barnfield will be the great place for families with pre-school children to stay. 

Your holiday at Barnfield includes the following child friendly facilities, (all within the price). Just let us know what you need when you book and we’ll ensure it is waiting for you on arrival.

  • Stair gates
  • Fireguard
  • Travel Cot
  • High chair
  • Baby monitor
  • Night light
  • Mattress protector
  • Plug guards
  • Porta-potty
  • Changing mat
  • Baby bath
  • Plastic plates, mugs and cutlery sets x 2
  • Toys
  • Children’s books
  • Games

At Christmas we’ll put a tree and greenery in the lounge and a big box of lights and decorations, but leave the actual decorating for your children to enjoy as part of the excitement of Christmas.

We’ve included a list of good family friendly places to visit from local attractions to child friendly pubs in our Visitors’ Directory (as well as things like contact details for chemists, NHS-direct, doctors etc.).


★★★★★ A wonderful family holiday in a very beautiful location. So much to see and do. The house so comfortable, a real country cottage. Thank you so much!
