Stable cottage is in a area perfect for walks including a hidden little gem, Challacombe Reservoir.

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.

Three steps to entrance. Living/dining room with wood-burning stove, patio doors, wooden floor and well-equipped kitchen with wooden floor.

    Lovely comfortable cottage with excellent facilities - good base for exploring only downfall was lack of reliable phone coverage especially Vodaphone and no internet connection - this definitely needs to be addressed - lovely local pub The Black Venus where food and service excellent!

    Well equipped cottage in peaceful rural location, very clean. The only downsides were the track up to cottage full of potholes, not good for the car but it is possible to dodge them with care. Also the unexplained intermittent noise from the water in the night as well as day. Lovely little garden for sitting out if weather permits!

    A quiet, relaxing, place. No road noise, just peace and quiet. Unfortunately the hot water system, situated in one bedroom, fires up every 20 mins or so, 24 hours a day. This leads to disturbed sleep for anyone using that bedroom. The cottage has reached the point of needing a coat of paint and a brush up. It would be a great shame to see it become too shabby.

    We enjoyed staying at Stable cottage warm inviting everything thought of really could not have been better. We enjoyed all that there was to offer in the pretty villages sadly we couldn't get to Knighthayes Court as it was closed due to a storm. Enjoyed watching Stags and Hinds on Exmoor and lots to do and see, weather for time of year good some sunny days and not a lot of rain.The welcome pack was superb everything you could want so many thanks for that.
