On a 7 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 or open the French windows to the garden on a sunny day.
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.
And the star is the indoor swimming pool with Jacuzzi in the barn near the house for a dip whenever you choose.
For more activity, pony riding is available nearby, the Tamar Lakes are excellent for water sports and the fabulous surf beaches at Bude and Sandymouth are within easy reach.
With the town’s shops and pubs nearby, Yellowland Farm is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday.
