Poadmarsh Farm Cottages

South Molton 6 miles. These two detached holiday cottages are situated on the owners’ working sheep farm, on the edge of Exmoor, and close to the market town of South Molton in Devon. Approached along a private lane, the original 18th century barn conversions have been renovated with much care to provide a welcoming and comfortable home from home. Both of these delightful cottages provide a convenient base for families and friends who wish to explore the wonderful Exmoor National Park and North Devon coast. Jack’s Nest is all on one level and may be suitable for less able guests with fabulous views across the farm meadows, providing a quiet setting for a holiday for two within this part of Devon. Owl’s Nest on the other hand is a two-storey cottage sleeping four people. This welcoming cottage is surrounded by green meadows and has far reaching views towards Exmoor, making it a peaceful place to stay. Outside, both cottages have their own enclosed lawned garden and BBQ area. The friendly owners welcome guests to lend a hand on the farm, so why not have a go at bottle feeding the new born lambs in springtime or discover the footpaths that lead from the farm through the lovely landscape providing easy walks from your door. The location is perfect for those who would like to explore the area; with Exmoor just across the valley you can enjoy a variety of landscapes, exhilarating walks, an abundance of wildlife and cosy pubs. The stunning North Devon coastline is just a 30 minute drive and offers rocky coves; sandy beaches and everything in-between; surfing, hiking, rook pooling, crabbing or simply relaxing! A 10-minute drive takes you to the town of South Molton, with its well-known pannier market selling local produce, Quince Honey, a family run working bee farm, Melchior Chocolates and a good selection of independent shops, pubs and cafés. Jack’s Nest and Owl’s Nest provide quality accommodation with a huge welcome in a stunning rural setting.
