This impressive, partly thatched, listed farmhouse features a medieval entrance hall complete with the original wooden panels dating back to the 15th century. The farmhouse is found down a private drive in the hub of an organic working farm and retains many of its original features with stonework and wooden beams.

The local village of Iddesleigh is 2 miles away and offers the award winning pub, The Duke of York, where Michael Morpurgo, the author of the acclaimed film War Horse, was first inspired to write the book sitting in front of the fire chatting with the First World War veteran and local man Wilfred Ellis. If you have time to venture further afield, there are many local attractions within a short drive including Dartmoor and Exmoor, with Lynton and Lynmouth to the north, Exmouth and Sidmouth to the south and lovely beaches of Bude and Widemouth to the west. The Big Sheep, The Milky Way, RHS Rosemoor Gardens, coarse fishing at Stafford Moor and Dartington Crystal are also a short drive. Cyclists and walkers are both well catered for in the area with the famous Tarka Trail within easy reach and farm walks. Leisure facilities: the patio area offers a private hot tub.

This Cottage is a little isolated but if you are prepared for that it is an amazing place to stay. It is really well equipped, very spacious.

We had 9 people staying at Fursdon Farm and were delighted to be bought homemade warm scones shortly after arrival. Shirley had left clotted cream, jam, tea & biscuits. There were also flowers dotted around the cottage which made it very homely. My only negative is that the property is a fair distance from anywhere, so a car needs to be used to getRead more anywhere. BUT if you want a restful break Fursdon Farm is the place, especially with the Hot Tub Hide

We really enjoyed this property, it was spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. As it happened, the weather was fantastic as well and the whole family loved being able to use the hot tub often. The location is very secure as it is at the end of a no-through road so the children could play outside with just a little supervision. The hosts madeRead more us most welcome and even provided some light essentials to start our break - the scones, cream and jam were very much appreciated. Hide
