    “The cottage was an extremelly well-converted barn on a working dairy farm and it offered a wonderful opportunity to relax.”

    We had everything we needed at close hand and it offered a lovely view of the surrounding Devon countryside Walks of varying length were described in their introductory folder.

    We had everything we needed at close hand and it offered a lovely view of the surrounding Devon countryside Walks of varying length were described in their introductory folder. Visits to the farmyard were welcomed and everyone working on the farm was friendly and knowledgable. It was a wonderful opportunity to escape the noise and bustle of the town and we were sorry to have to leave it.

The property

North Molton 2.1 miles.

A single-storey barn conversion, one of a group of holiday cottages set around a traditional courtyard, on the owners' 330 acre dairy farm, in tranquil countryside near North Molton in North Devon.

Ideal for those not wanting to climb stairs to bed, this is a bright sunny cottage with open plan living area leading into a conservatory which has magnificent views over the lush green Devon farmland, a place where guests can sit for hours birdwatching and spotting wildlife.

Along the hallway are two bedrooms sharing a bathroom.

Outside is a large private patio garden overlooking the farm courtyard.

Dogs and their owners are welcome to walk along the farm footpaths, amongst the fields of grazing cattle and deer.

Situated on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, there is a varied and inspiring landscape popular with outdoor enthusiasts, where you’ll find wonderful walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and birdwatching, all within easy reach.

The heather-clad moors, dramatic coastline, dark night skies and pretty villages make Exmoor one of Britain’s most idyllic hidden treasures!
