The three cottages have been sympathetically converted to a high standard from a Victorian stone barn. They are set around a beautiful, fully fenced, grassed courtyard next to the owner's farmhouse. The cottages retain many period features such as vaulted, beamed ceilings and wooden floors. When combined with modern features and cosy wood burners, these cottages give much charm and comfort.

Tucked away in its own 47 acres in a sunny valley within the Exmoor National Park. Surrounded by panoramic views and bordered by woodland, a river, and rolling pasture, it is a perfect place for a secluded and peaceful self-catering holiday. At the end of a long unmade farm track it is a delightful and safe environment for children and animals, free from passing traffic, 3 miles from the unspoilt village of Parracombe with its award-winning pub and friendly shop and Post Office. You will be within easy reach of moorland and the North Devon coast, Lynton and Lynmouth, Combe Martin and the sandy beaches at Woolacombe and Croyde. Footpaths lead direct from the cottages to the moors and the beach at Heddon's Mouth which is a 3.5 mile walk. As well as splendid walking, there are riding stables nearby together with a wide variety of local attractions for all weathers. The farm is home to red deer, bats, buzzards, owls, otters and a huge array of wildlife and wildflowers.

Play facilities: fenced outdoor picnic/play area with Wendy house and small climbing frame. Games room: cheerful, bright barn in the courtyard with table tennis, table football, small snooker table, skittles, croquet and many more toys and games. Outside: large shared grassy courtyard with garden furniture for playing outdoor games, picnicking or a quiet read. Access to shared patio area with gas BBQ and Chimnea, with spectacular views of the valley and of the setting sun. Utility: shared laundry room with a washing machine, tumble dryer, large overhead drying rack, wellies and fishing nets to borrow. Amenities: bed linen, electric, central heating and wi-fi included. Towels for hire. First basket of logs free then £7.50 per basket. Arrival: 3.30pm.

The accommodation offers THREE bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin and 1 further en-suite twin with a pair of single four-poster beds made from the original grain bins. Bathroom: with shower over bath, WC and shaver point. Lounge/kitchen/diner: spacious open-plan living area with woodburner, flatscreen TV, radio, DVD and CD. Fully fitted kitchen dinner with a farmhouse table, pine cupboards, gas cooker, freezer, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Outside: private patio with picnic table and BBQ. Amenities: 2 well-behaved dogs welcome, more by arrangement, but must not be left unattended and must be kept on leads where requested. Easily accessed, fully enclosed, half acre meadow/orchard are for dogs off lead. Regret no smoking. Additional info: generous reductions for parties of 2 in off peak weeks, call for more details.

We've stayed twice now an love it! Really great for our 4yr old son. The driveway is a little "different" but once you've done it a few times its fine!

We had a wonderful week at Voley. There was a lovely fire in the wood burning stove as we arrived. Lovely flowers on the table. Delicious food in the fridge. Our hosts were really friendly and helpful and they have made Voley Farm a very child friendly holiday home. Our grandsons loved the playroom and the swings and playhouses. Also, the walk downRead more to the river and the tree swing. We want to return soon! Hide

Lovely quiet location and although a little way off the beaten track, great to get out into the countryside, especially if you are walkers and have a dog.

Carey and Peter were so welcoming and helpful. Our grandchildren just loved the facilities laid on for young people in the play room and tractor rides etc! A beautiful part of Exmoor and lots to do in the area.

Perfect does not do this place justice. The cottage is beautiful and the views are amazing. We had everything we needed and more. Carey and husband are so friendly and helpful. Arriving to bacon cream teas milk.... is such a lovely touch. I would recommend anyone to their cottage a magical place you can't fault it. Looking forward to our next stay.

We really enjoyed our week at Voley Farm. Mole Cottage is absolutely delightful and is set in an idyllic and peaceful valley so close to the beautiful north Devon coast. Our welcome and hospitality shown to us during our stay was perfect. We will certainly return to explore further - only probably for two weeks next time!

This is a beautiful cottage in a very rural location. The driveway is very long and the cottage is quite a distance to the nearest shop but as long as you are aware of this it isn't a problem. There are about 50 acres of land and most of it you can walk through which is fantastic if you have a dog. Carey and Peter were very nice people and looked aRead morefter your every need. They were great with our two children and even took them on a tractor ride. I would go back again. Hide

Lovely cottage with very friendly owners. Remote, peaceful location. The only negative thing was the although the cottage is in a beautiful location there isn't a garden actually attached to the cottage. We took the dogs with us a sometime felt it hard not to be able to let them out in a garden and felt a little couped up. There is a lovely courtyaRead morerd but the dogs have to be on leads. The country walks are beautiful. Hide

Had really enjoyable short break here, even the weather was better than forecast! We love north Devon and this property is ideally situated to explore the area. The cottage is very homely and well equipped, owners and pets very friendly. Thank you very much for making us welcome.
