  • "We had a great week with 10 of us enjoying the facilities."

    The swimming pool, the hot tub, the games barn were a very big hit. The house is a good size and we would happily come back. The only qualms we had is that we felt the fridge was a bit small for 10 guests. But apart from that all good.

  • "Lovely spacious, warm and immaculately clean old farm house with attractive and well maintained garden."

    The facilities are outstandingly good. In fact there is so much to do at the farm you don't need to leave it if the weather isn't great. The swimming pool is wonderfully warm so we were able to stay in with the children much longer than usual, whilst other adults lounged in the jacuzzi and looked on. The men enjoyed the full sized snooker table and the table tennis, pool table and table football were all a bonus. It's in a great position just 3 miles from all the facilities in Holsworthy so no distance to go when you run out of milk. It's less than half an hour to the lovely Hartland coast or the other way to the Tarka trail for safe off rode cycling with the children and also RHS Rosemoor is nearby. I would definitely recommend Yellowland Farm.

  • "We loved the cottage and it lived up to expectation."

    The only thing I would mention is the bed size for 2 of our party who are over 6 ft tall. They struggled with a standard size double bed. I was at fault in not considering their needs when booking. We take for granted that in hotels these days it is usually at least a king size bed for a double. However that is just a little niggle. The pool and jacuzzi were fantastic and enjoyed by all.

  • "Found the cottage really nice and the owners very welcoming."

    The pool is great and the family spent many hrs splashing about. Facilities are faultless, and more than enough seating for all (6 adults & 4 kids). We did find the beds a bit on the hard side, but that's more a personal choice and what your used to back home. Our main issue was not with the cottage of it's facilities, but the fact that the location is a bit isolated if you what to explore or walk the coastal areas (25min to Bude), but again that depends on what you want from a holiday.

    Three families got together for an early Christmas celebration. This property gave us everything we needed to have a great time. Two teenage girls spent hours in the pool and hot tub, which were both literally bath temperature. The adults also enjoyed this facility, especially the cooks when they needed chill time. We all expected to need lots of warm clothes as the weather had turned very cold that weekend, but were pleasantly surprised on our arrival to find the house was so beautifully warm. It was such an unexpected treat. The owners were really lovely people also. We could not have chosen a better property to rent. Many Thanks for a really special stay.

    Hilary & Paul made our holiday very special from decorating the house to showing the children the farm animals. The house provided every comfort - a cosy lounge with wood burner, a spacious dining room with Christmas tree, an extra child's bed & plenty of hot water. As the weather was a bit damp ( it is December!), the facilities were a great bonus especially the warm pool and hot tub which were used daily. There are beautiful grounds with outdoor seating areas which we were not able to use but we would thoroughly recommend Yellowland Farm at any time of the year.

It was comfortable, very clean and well decorated with everything you might need, including hair dryers, games, books, videos and toys.

  • "Overall, we had a fabulous holiday."

    The hosts, Hilary and Paul, were so friendly and pleasant. On arrival, there were fresh flowers throughout the cottage and some gorgeous home-baked shortbread cookies to welcome us. Hilary and Paul stopped many a while to pass the time of day despite having a working farm to tend. Our youngsters loved trying to feed the sheep (but they weren't hungry this time) and watching the chickens. Toffee, their dog, was very friendly and popular Our group ranged from 7 years to 70 and there was something for everyone. Plenty of seating, crockery, space - all very well organised and co-ordinated. Free wifi was available, but we struggled for a signal in the lounge area. Everywhere else was okay. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were comfy, spotless and well equipped. Parking for our 3 cars was plenty and the environment was lovely, safe and free from the expected farmyard smells. The pool and hot tub were used everyday - just a pity we couldn't use our sinkers and inflatables etc for insurance reasons which we understood. Plastic beakers were thoughtfully provided for use in the pool area - obviously you can't risk glass or crockery breaking in a swimming pool. The games room was extremely popular - table tennis, pool and table football (although the football table had sagged a little so the players couldn't kick the balls). The separate, full-sized snooker table was excellent, as was the play room with lego, mats, bikes, trikes, balls and much more. There was even some gym equipment. The photographs on the website are a little misleading. The wide angle shots make the rooms look bigger than actual sizes. Having said that, we were still very pleased with everything and had more than enough space for three families. One slight downside was the number of flies in the cottage. Fine mesh screens at the windows would resolve this but fly spray was effective. Also, couldn't leave the patio doors open as there were cats on site which we were asked not to let indoors as they aren't house trained. The gardens, play areas and outdoor seating arrangements were exceptional and used fully most days, thanks to the glorious weather for 6 out of 7 days.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we’re so pleased to hear all about the great holiday you had! We’d just like to clarify for future guests that inflatables are allowed in the swimming pool (at your own risk) – it’s just that the owners don’t provide any, so you will need to bring your own. We’re sorry you had a few problems with flies; as it’s a farm environment this can happen occasionally, however it’s usually very short lived and as you’ll see from the other feedback received, not a regular occurrence. We very much look forward to seeing you again soon! Property Owner

The property

On a 75 acre working Devon farm, 2½ miles from Holsworthy, is Yellowland Farm, a handsome farmhouse.

With exclusive use of this big rambling house (except the ground floor to the left of the porch), it is a popular and friendly place for family gatherings and groups of friends.

From the moment you step through your front door, you will feel at home in the big spacious rooms.

From the long hall, head into the sitting room, a lovely place to relax beside the wood burning stove and watch TV.

French windows looking over the garden.

Leisurely meals around the long sociable table in the dining room, enjoying food prepared in the smart, well-equipped kitchen, will be a highlight of the day.

And, when you're ready for bed, head upstairs to the four comfy bedrooms, two with handy en suites.

Children (and the young at heart) will love the outdoor freedom here, with a pretty, safely enclosed garden around the house and the farm to explore beyond, where you can feed the hens and pet animals and play in the adventure playground, or in the games barn if the weather isn't kind.Snooker Room with full size table,Toy room,Games room and the star is the indoor swimming pool with Jacuzzi in the barn near the house for a dip whenever you choose.

The ancient market town of Holsworthy lies nestled amid the rolling green hills of Tarka Country. There are many different landscapes within the region, from rugged cliffs and sandy beaches to rolling farmland and lush valleys. Holsworthy has much to offer, including a swimming pool, tennis court and splendid park with bowling green. The town centre boasts a varied selection of traditional shops, pubs and cafés, based around the market square. There is an 18-hole golf course just outside the town, while the local area is rich with opportunities for fishing, sailing, cycling and walking. The sandy beaches at Bude are within easy reach, while further afield visitors can explore the changing face of the South West Coastal Path, dramatic Exmoor and Dartmoor, and unspoilt Bodmin Moor, or simply relax in the quiet countryside that typifies North Devon.
