Neighbouring the beautiful Wistlandpound Reservoir, where you can take a walk through the peaceful woodlands which is a haven for wildlife. With plenty of picnic tables to enjoy a spot of lunch whilst birdwatching and also a great place for a spot of trout fishing. Enjoy a day out at Exmoor Zoo home to 175 species of animals and only 4 miles away, or venture further to Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park (5 miles), set in 28 acres of spectacular gardens and a great day out for all the family. Combe Martin (7 miles) is a pretty seaside village with a lovely bay which is popular for kayaking and paddle boarding. Other places to visit are the stunning beaches that North Devon is famous for, including Woolacombe (14 miles), the perfect spot for surfing.

A complex of 2 cottages, this former barn where the baby calves were born has been converted into a charming quirky and full-of-character holiday home. With Oak beams, a vaulted ceiling, and original stone throughout. The open plan lounge is a great place to relax and catch up with a family movie on the TV and enjoy a tasty dinner from the fully equipped kitchen. There is a twin room on the ground floor and a family bathroom with a free-standing bath, a walk-in shower and WC. Take the steps to the mezzanine bedroom with a double bed.

Outside is an enclosed courtyard with a patio set, where you can enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple or a morning coffee. There is also a communal area and a games room with table tennis plus resident goats and chickens.


We had a fab stay here. Really good location for moors and beach. Lovely part of the world. On an old farm the animals nearby were a real highlight for my children. Lambs, goats and rabbits. Reservoir is a short walk away and suitable for small kids. This is a family friendly house we stayed with our kids aged 2 and 4. Stair gate keeps them out of the upstairs. Not many hazards for them to bump into. Lovely bathroom with great shower and bath that is good for kids. Soft towels. Comfy beds. Well stocked kitchen. Has cafeteria for coffee. Lovely touch of bread and scones on arrival. Thank you. Feels very secure property. Friendly owners. I would love to stay as an extended family booking both calving and tractor barns. Has a lovely seated area in the summer would be great to sit out in. Throughly recommend and would love to come back. It’s a peaceful retreat in the north Devon countryside.

Mrs E,

Lovely farm setting not too far off the beaten track and close to a nice evening walk around the reservoir. The hosts were extremely friendly as were their animals. I would recommend!

Mrs H,
