This comfy converted farm building offers a chance to explore the local area and to visit the nearby attractions.

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.

Spacious beamed living/dining room with wood-burning stove, patio doors, slate floor and two steps down to well-equipped kitchen area. Utility. Two steps down to two double bedrooms, each with 6ft zip and link beds. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet. Separate toilet.

    A beautiful cottage in very peaceful surroundings. Even though you're on a farm and there are other holiday cottages nearby you wouldn't know it! The cottage and garden are very private. Lots to do in the local area. The Black Venus pub does great food and is easy to walk to by road or across fields. Welcome pack on arrival which was great after a long journey. No phone signal but wifi is great. We'll definitely be coming back!

    The property is very well maintained and provisions are of a high standard. I have stayed in some places where crockery for example had been poor and a mix of various cheap stuff, not at Swincombe, its Denby! Great welcome hamper of local supplies. We really didnt need anything the cottage didnt have. Superb location up a farm track, so nice and quiet. Lively dog friendly garden, fully fenced and lots of local walking. Enjoyed very much and would go back...noted from guest book some are regular visitors! Overall 10/10

    Absolutely fabulous for what we needed (two of us and a dog) The only issue was the wifi, which was unavailable for most of our stay, but in fairness this may have been a BT problem and the owners did try and sort it out. The welcome pack was great and the accommodation much bigger than we thought. We would certainly try and stay again the next time we visit Exmoor
