GERRY, July 2019

My wife and I stayed at the Ivy Barn with our puppy called Eddie. He was delighted immediately on arrival to fine that the resident dog Merlin was as lively as he was and always ready to play. The welcome from Nicky and Rik was warm and friendly and our stay at Ivy Barn was a delight. The area around is so good for dogs with the famous beaches of Mothecombe and Wonwell just a short drive away - hundreds of acres of flat golden sand and the tidal waters of the Erme Estuary for Eddie to swim in.

Our rooms was really comfy and the facilities were first class. Simple parking outside the room and two dog-friendly pubs within walking distance as well as others within a short drive.

Chef Rik cooks as good an English breakfast as you could imagine and there is a nice small garden to relax in in the afternoon with a book.

We have no hesitation in giving Ivy Barn a 100% recommendation for a stay - with or without a dog
