Maddox Down Farm is situated in a quiet hamlet with stunning views over the countryside, completely rural. This working farm, with the traditional stone barns converted into 5 delightful holiday cottages in keeping with the area, has been in family ownership since the 1500s. On site there is a shared swimming pool (available from Easter to October), games room in a converted cart linhay, complete with pool table, board games, books, videos, matted area for small children and more. In the meadow below the cottages there is a wildlife pond where you can sit and have a picnic and watch the fish. Also, you might be able to see geese, moorhens and ducks. There is a shopping service available, including local produce. Situated only 2 miles from the edge of Exmoor National Park, 3 miles from the sea.

    Holiday and facilities were excellent - owners always on hand and helpful without being an overbearing presence. Always helpful and friendly when the kids went over.
