This lovely cottage offers a quiet haven in a beautiful location but plenty to do right from the doorstep.

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.

Two double bedrooms, each with 6ft zip and link bed; one with en-suite shower room and toilet. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet. First floor: Living/dining room with gas woodburner, wooden floor and spacious well-equipped kitchen area with wooden floor. Utility.

    The Old Dairy Barn is a home from home place to stay, with everything you would need for a very comfortable stay. We stayed over the New Year break and it was lovely to find a christmas tree up in the lounge on our arrival, such a lovely touch for a Christmas break.

    The cottage is lovely, has everything you need, home from home almost. The welcome pack was great, so nice to be able to have a cup of tea when we arrived as it was all there waiting for us. The cottage was surprisingly peaceful, I say surprisingly as it was on a working farm but we didn't see anyone whilst there. We throughly enjoyed our stay and we found lots of walks within a short drive. The local pub offered a warm welcome and the food was fantastic.

    Our 3rd time at Old Dairy Barn. Welcome pack, as usual, was exceptional. We always try to avoid holiday accommodation that accepts dogs. However, the accommodation was spotlessly clean with no traces of dog hair, smell or other unacceptable dog problems which dog-owners seem oblivious to.

    Our second stay at this lovely property and it probably won't be the last. Only small negative are the car-eating potholes on the lane approaching, but it is really just a farm track.

    Lovely place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, rural getaway. Lovely views in a quiet village. Accommodation was high spec & we would stay again. It was a shame that some areas appeared to have not been cleaned from the previous occupant prior to our arrival.

    We were absolutely amazed it was brilliant in every way, welcoming, cleanliness, location and design. We had an absolutely wonderful time there the owners had thought of everything we required and more if that is possible!
