A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This lovely cottage gives you the best of both worlds: tranquil countryside location, yet close to beautiful beaches.

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. Golf, watersports and riding are all available locally, whilst the nearby Tarka Trail leads walkers and cyclists through superb scenery and for family fun The Big Sheep, The Milky Way adventure parks are close by.

    Really great holiday, enjoyed with another family All the children enjoyed having an indoor swimming pool that they used daily and it never got over crowded with other cottage guests. Great to have a compact gym whilst away to keep holiday indulgence at bay! Cottage had great communal space although children's bedrooms were very tight on space so may not be ideal in teenage years. Adult beds could do with some updating but rooms were of good size Overall a lovely cottage in quiet location with plenty to do and would definitely visit again

    We were a group of 5 adults 3 children and an infant. Mole End suited us perfectly - safe environment for the children with indoor pool, games room and playground at our disposal. Also a private garden. Set in wonderful countryside, it is easy to get to all the attractions which North Devon and North Cornwall has to offer - we'd highly recommend it without hesitation

    We were a multigenerational group and found the cottage ideal for our purpose. Any minor problem was swiftly dealt with by Tim the caretaker who could not have been more helpful to the grannies.
