Former granary situated on a working organic dairy farm in North Devon, within easy reach of the coast with its beaches, pretty harbour towns, and fishing villages.

This property enjoys a quiet rural location on the owner’s 300-acre farm in the Devonshire countryside. Although there is plenty to see and do on and around the farm, those who want to explore more of what the area has to offer will be spoilt for choice, with many sites and attractions being within easy reach of the property. For example, the attractive harbour town of Bideford is just seven miles away, with its narrow streets lined with antique shops, independent boutiques, and a choice of eateries. To the west of the property, the privately-owned village of Clovelly is a lovely place to spend a day discovering what Devonshire life was like in the past, and there is even a small beach here as well as a fishing harbour. The Milky Way family adventure park, with its rides, and play areas is always a hit with young visitors, whilst the sandy beach at Westward Ho!, ten miles from the property, offers a two-mile wide stretch of sandy beach.

This property offers upside-down accommodation, with two of the three bedrooms situated on the ground floor. The double bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower and WC, whilst there is also a spacious and comfortable twin room. The bathroom is also located on the ground floor and offers a shower-over-bath and WC. Stairs lead to the first-floor living area, where there is a cosy lounge with sofa seating, a wood burner-effect electric fire, TV/DVD. The light-filled kitchen/diner is accessed through the lounge and offers a wooden dining table, beamed ceiling, an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and iPod dock. There is a convenient utility room adjacent to the property, accessed externally, where guests will find the washer/dryer. Wooden stairs from the lounge lead to the galleried third bedroom, a perfect room for children, with twin beds, a sofa, and a TV/DVD. Outside, there is a lawned garden, with outdoor seating a BBQ, providing guests with a space from which to enjoy the farm’s peace and tranquillity. The games barn offers a wonderful escape for teenagers, with its dartboard, table tennis table, and snooker table.

Guests are also able to explore the farm, where they can meet the resident animals, including the cows and chickens, and it is even possible to take a Land Rover tour of the farm with the friendly owners, when they are available. There is ample off-road parking available.

This is a very homely and comfortable cottage with friendly owners just a few steps away. The kitchen is well equipped, and the laundry room is great, especially in wet weather! Our children enjoyed the games barn, especially the table-tennis. The garden is nice to sit in with a cup of tea. The bathrooms are of a good standard and the shower is greRead moreat. Location is lovely, completely peaceful yet only a mile from a main road. Hide

Cottage was spotlessly clean. There was a games room and drying room which we found very useful the only sound heard were from the cows! The owner, a dairy farmer went out of his way to show us the workings of the farm and we watched cows being milked and he also gave us ideas where to visit. A most enjoyable holiday.
