Description

With 30 acres to explore and walks from the door, this delightful cottage is the perfect country retreat.

Set in 40 acres of north Devon’s picturesque rolling hills, Libbear Barton is a country estate consisting of a beautiful Georgian farmhouse and three charming cottages. It is within easy reach of some of the loveliest beaches of the north Devon and Cornwall coastlines, as well as the wild beauty of Dartmoor and with countless family attractions in between.
Toad Hall (ref UKC595) is detached and sleeps up to 14 in 7 bedrooms, whilst the cottages each have 4 double or twin bedrooms. Each is individually furnished and has its own character. Otter’s Den (ref UKC597) offers open-plan living, Badger’s House (ref UKC596) provides spacious rooms upstairs and down, Mole End (ref UKC598) is cosy while offering a large, well-equipped kitchen/dining room for up to 8 people. Each has its own garden with barbecue and sand pit as well as ample parking. Perfect for families, with baby and toddler equipment available for all properties, Libbear Barton has grounds with a large heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, games room, soft play area, adventure playground, a well-equipped gym, DVD library, woodland, badgers’ hide and meadows. There are barbecues placed throughout the grounds for guests to enjoy.
You’ll find yourself stepping right into the pages of ‘The Wind in the Willows’. The farmhouse and cottages are surrounded by fields, walks, a 5 acre wood and a fishing lake. There are ducks and geese, swallows, house martins, and you will no doubt find hedgehogs and moles. At sunset you are likely to catch a glimpse of the graceful red deer in the woods, and there is also a large fishing lake, perfect for fly fishing. Libbear Barton is also ideal if you’re thinking of a large celebration for a special birthday or anniversary, with hire available of The Stables, an attractive beamed events room where groups can meet and eat and celebrate together, and guests can stay in one place with no need to worry about driving.
If you can bear to drag yourself away from this stunning location, the breathtaking north Devon and north Cornish coast is within 25 minutes’ drive, and boasts fantastic sandy beaches, excellent surfing and many hidden coves to explore.

    We had a lovely stay at Badgers House. The cottage was comfortable and clean. We were a party of 6 adults and 3 kids. Despite the rainy and cold weather, the girls were kept occupied with the indoor swimming pool and game room. The lounge was big enough for the girls to play board games and Twister and for adults to relax. The nature trail was beautiful. I loved the fact the cottage in the middle of countryside and would definitely come back again.

    Great place to stay. A bit out of the way but we were able to park three cars so we all had our independence. Our age range was 1-64 and everyone found something to entertain them. Sadly we didn't see any badgers, other than those in the cottage but we did find the hide and spent a few happy moments there hoping! The pool and games room were great for my 11 & 12 year old grandchildren and we all enjoyed the space and facilities in the house itself. Good safety features downstairs enabled us to be less worried about our little ones, except the upstairs windows had no stays so children had to be supervised at all times there. The kitchen appliances were well used, dishwasher and washing machine added to our convenience. The only negative was the warmth at night in the bedrooms upstairs so a fan or two might be helpful but overall we had a great week! Thank you.
