This lovely cottage offers a quiet haven in a beautiful location but plenty to do right from the doorstep.

Located on the vast Woolhanger Estate, these three highly individual, detached holiday properties (refs HTTH, HTTJ and HTTK) have been converted from old farm buildings to provide very comfortable, well-appointed accommodation. They offer a quiet haven but with plenty to do on the doorstep. There is great walking on the many footpaths in the area, including up to Challacombe Reservoir, a hidden little gem. The working farm estate has a wonderful wedding venue location in its spectacular Victorian music room and the cottages can be used in conjunction with Woolhanger Farmhouse to provide accommodation for guests. As well as walking on Exmoor, there is plenty to do within easy reach of the cottages. In Ilfracombe there are the Tunnel Beaches, harbour and numerous shops and restaurants, Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Watermouth Castle and at Lynton, the funicular railway runs to Lynmouth, or take a trip on the narrow gauge railway at Woody Bay. At Croyde and Woolacombe are some of the best surfing beaches in the country as well as many small coves and bays. There are NT properties at Arlington and Knightshayes and RHS gardens at Rosemoor, Great Torrington. Shop and pub 500 yards.

Two double bedrooms, each with 6ft zip and link bed; one with en-suite shower room and toilet. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet. First floor: Living/dining room with gas woodburner, wooden floor and spacious well-equipped kitchen area with wooden floor. Utility.

    Old Dairy Barn is a spacious, comfortable, warm, well equipped property, with an excellent garden, completely enclosed for dogs. The 'welcome pack' was incredible and much appreciated. The Black Venus pub in village is excellent and welcoming, as is the village shop.

    Really well appointed, modern & comfortable converted barn on a quiet working farm with cows & sheep in neighbouring fields. Large decking area outside with BBQ & a large enclosed garden/small field, perfect for the dog. Beautiful quiet rural location away from everything, but within reach of many lovey places to visit. Car is a must, given the isolated location. Pub & small shop a short drive/20 minute walk away. Nice welcome pack on arrival & useful file of local info provided. Few small niggles: Overall excellent cleanliness of property let down a bit by cobwebs round ceilings & window areas. Windows could do with a clean inside & out. Outside main light over backdoor door wasn't working on arrival. No instructions for working the boiler/hot water, which switched itself off. Woken at night by scrabbling of rodents against outer bedroom wall - spoiled stay as couldn't sleep properly for a few days. Reported these items to owner who, to their credit, responded immediately to promptly deal with things.
