Drewstone Farm Cottages

South Molton 3 miles. These three superb holiday homes are situated approximately half a mile from each other on the owners’ working livestock farm, surrounded by countryside, and close to the market town of South Molton in Devon. All of these delightful cottages provide a convenient base for families and friends who wish to explore the wonderful Exmoor National Park and North Devon coast. Sleeping four people, Woodland Hideaway is attached to the owners’ farmhouse, down a private drive, on the 300-acre farm. Boasting views across a pretty woodland river valley, the cottage provides a quiet setting for a holiday within this part of Devon. Drewstone Arches on the other hand is a traditional 16th century cottage, sleeping five people. This welcoming cottage is surrounded by farm meadows and overlooks the picturesque valley, making it a peaceful place to stay. Woodcutters Cottage sleeps four and has been beautifully converted to provide heart-warming accommodation amidst the luscious countryside of Devon, near South Molton. Outside, all cottages have their own enclosed lawned garden, as well as access to a children’s play area and shared grounds. Approximately half a mile from Drewstone Arches is the river, leading to North Molton, while this is approximately half a mile from Woodland Hideaway. The farm itself was featured on the ITV programme 'Johnny Kingdom's Wild Exmoor' in 2015. There are plenty of lovely walks from the farm, including a wooded trail down to a valley, and you will always have a smile on your face when you see the bleating lambs in the fields. Also this area is one of the Dark Sky Reserves in the UK which makes this a superb stargazing location, so settle down into the evening and enjoy a hot drink, whilst you admire the wonderful night’s sky. Three miles away is the village of South Molton, which offers interesting shops, pubs and cafes, a supermarket and a swimming pool. In the area there are a number of farm shops and pretty villages, with three country pubs within four miles. Close by is the stunning Exmoor National Park, where you can explore the beautiful landscape on foot or on horseback, plus there are a wealth of outdoor activities on offer, including cycling, fishing and birdwatching. The dramatic North Devon coastline is also within reach, with numerous beauty spots to explore, such as Lynmouth, Watersmeet, Clovelly, Dunster, Landacre Bridge and Tarr Steps, and the beaches at Croyde and Woolacombe provide the finest quality surf and sand. Woodland Hideaway and Drewstone Arches provide quality accommodation in a stunning location.
