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.

    The cottage was very well equipped; welcome pack of bread, butter etc very much appreciated however one and a half toilet rolls is not sufficient for 4 adults for a week! The cottage had obviously been cleaned before we arrived but the floors were quite dirty, especially in the bathroom where we found a number of long hairs - not ours. The fan in the oven was very noisy - sounded as if it was loose or broken. The lack of mobile signal caused significant problems on the Tuesday night when the smoke alarms kept going off - 4 times in total. We had to resort to asking the gentleman in the farmhouse if we could use his phone to call the office but when my husband did manage to get through, there was no one there but an answering machine. The problem was dealt with the next day but surely a landline for local calls could be provided at the property to be used in circumstances such as this - other holiday cottages we have stayed in have this facility. And someone answering the phone would have been helpful as well!

    Loved the Cottage and the thought that had gone into the 'conversion' from the stables. All the items on the inventory made it easy for self catering. The wood burner was a cosy feature on grey days. The unexpected 'welcome pack' of local food was a very nice touch. It was excellent value for money.

    Our third visit and this will definitely not be our last. Total relaxation in a lovely cottage which is in such an idyllic location. Thank you so much!

    A quiet place to stay. The cottage is reasonably equipped but could do with a few storage containers. The welcome pack is excellent and very generous. The hot water system is very noisy and can disturb sleep. The Venus pub is handy if a break from cooking is needed! Parts of the cottage need more serious cleaning. A lot of dog hair under the settees and dust on skirtings and shelves. Would be a pity for the cottage to deteriorate.

    Comfortable, well equipped, excellent welcome pack. Could do with somewhere to hang wet outdoor clothes. Had to look for the hot switch for the bathroom.
