Barn conversion cottage situated on the owner’s farm, three miles from the market town of South Molton, and within easy reach of the Devon’s coastline.

This cottage benefits from a rural location on the owner’s horse farm. The town of South Molton, with its shops and market, is only three miles away, and is also home to the Quince Honey Farm, which has over 1000 hives and sells a range of their own artisan products. Exmoor is an easy drive away, which will delight keen walkers and those with an interest in wildlife. For those who like to explore the local area, the town of Barnstaple is just twelve miles from the cottage.

This spacious barn conversion cottage offers upside-down style accommodation, with the upstairs living area being accessed via a set of external steps. The large open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is the perfect space in which to relax, with its comfortable sofas, a warming wood burner, TV and DVD. The lounge area is separated from the kitchen/diner by the stairs. The large dining table comfortably seats six and the kitchen is well-equipped with an oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, and washer/dryer. Taking the stairs to the ground floor, guests will find the property’s three bedrooms, all of which have their own TVs and French doors with access to the property’s garden. The main bedroom has a super-king-size bed (which can be made up as a twin on request) and an en-suite shower room and WC. The two further bedrooms are both generous sized twin rooms. The main bathroom is also on the ground floor and offers a shower-over-bath and WC.

Outside, the property benefits from a generously sized enclosed garden which is mainly set to lawn, with a large private hot tub, patio with seating and BBQ. Guests can also use the shared children’s play area and are able to use the adjoining field. For those who would like to meet the resident horses, this is possible with supervision by the owner. There is ample parking to the rear of the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had an amazing week long stay despite the weather and the whole family from young to old had a great stay even the 4 dogs. The hot tub was to die for and the log burner was great for keeping the chill off. The owners were simply faultless, they couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect. This was our 2nd visit and definitely wont be our last. TRead morehey even allowed our daughter and her friend to help out with the horses which made their holiday. Thanks again to you all and see you soon. Hide

What a wonderful place to spend our holiday. The cottage was perfectly located for a peaceful break, really well equipped and maintained with everything we needed. The hosts were wonderful - helpful when we needed them, took the time to take our children to see the horses and never intrusive. A perfect break.

Lovely peaceful barn conversion, plenty of space, secured outdoor space for dogs. The little hamper on arrival was a lovely touch. Hottub was, of course, a winner! Lots of indoor and outdoor games provided.

This holiday was amazing, the couples who own it are always there to help nothing is too much trouble, the barn is beautiful, clean & well equipped, the dogs loved the large garden and the field opposite. Views for miles, and beaches about half an hour drive all dog friendly most of the time. We cannot wait to rebook.
