The property

This traditional farm cottage is attached to the owners' thatched Devon farmhouse, on a working dairy farm in Filleigh near South Molton.

The farm is tenanted and forms part of the renowned Castle Hill Estate, a Grade I listed park and gardens.

Set within an idyllic rural location and with amazing far reaching views, this comfortably-furnished cottage provides an ideal getaway for a family or group of friends.

Spread over three floors, there is a family bedroom on the second floor, an en-suite double, an additional double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, plus a kitchen and sitting room on the ground floor.

Both the front and back doors of the cottage open to a spacious enclosed garden with lawn, patio, furniture and extensive views across the cow barns to the countryside beyond.

Children will love the swings, dogs are safely enclosed and the adults can sit and relax whilst enjoying a barbecue.

The farmers love to encourage their guests to feed the calves, admire the lambs and collect the chickens’ eggs, all of which gives a real taste of Devon rural life.

The local village thatched pub is very popular with families and as this lovely cottage is so accessible from the A361, it is easy to reach the market town of South Molton for shopping.

Exmoor provides a great escape for walkers and wildlife lovers, whilst the spectacular North Devon beaches are all a short drive from your holiday cottage and provide endless sea, sand and surf for all members of the family.
