Legge Farm Cottages

Highampton 1 mile. A pair of attached cosy bungalows and a luxury lodge on a 28-acre fishing farm near Highampton, that provide fabulous getaways for keen fishermen or wildlife lovers. These rural retreats are situated next to the owners’ 18th century thatched farmhouse and back onto a small, friendly caravan site, providing a sociable holiday atmosphere. Both cottages are open plan and have small, private outdoor seating areas as well as the freedom to wander this beautiful site with wildflower meadows, woodland walks and five sizeable fishing lakes, well stocked with Common, Mirror Ghost and Grass Carp, Roach, Rudd, Bream, Tench and Perch. There is also a wildlife lake where visitors can marvel at the colourful dragonflies, interesting birds and cheeky ducks. All guests and day visitors to this Highampton farm are provided with a warm welcome by the owners and all the animals; there is always help and advice on hand. It is just a 15-minute walk into the friendly village where you can stock up in the shop or meet the locals for a glass of local brew in the thatched pub. This part of rural Devon is known as Ruby Country and has some spectacular trails for walking or cycling. Further afield, the stunning North Devon coastline is rich in beaches, so guests at these lovely cottages will have a huge choice of surfing, swimming and rock pool beaches to choose from. Whether you decide to stay on site and relax, or if you’d rather venture out and discover the nearby area, you will be sure to enjoy your stay in this wonderful area.

A small village in rural Devon, surrounded by beautiful farmland and boasting a popular village pub and shop.

Nearby is Hatherleigh, which has a Ruby Country Market and a few interesting craft shops and galleries and, being an ancient market town, it consists of cob and thatch cottages and several old English pubs. Hatherleigh lies in the Torridge Valley, just seven miles from the edge of the Dartmoor National Park, and is a wonderful central location for the coast-to-coast long distance trail, which includes the popular Tarka Trail.
