English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Stable cottage is in a area perfect for walks including a hidden little gem, Challacombe Reservoir.

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.

Three steps to entrance. Living/dining room with wood-burning stove, patio doors, wooden floor and well-equipped kitchen with wooden floor. First floor: Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms, one with 5ft bed and one with 6ft zip and link beds.

    A comfortable well equipped cottage and in a good location to see parts of both Devon and Somerset. The cottage is quite remote in a very small village but with a good shop and pub. Lots of lovely country walks on the doorstep and not too far from fabulous beaches too. Ideal for a dog and children as it has an enclosed garden. When we booked the cottage it was advertised as having wifi but we were informed prior to our stay there wasn't any. Whilst it was nice to be away from emails etc we felt quite isolated by the end of the week as we had no phone signal either (Vodafone) so nobody could reach us at all. The welcome pack was lovely, the best welcome pack I have received, a very nice touch. Loved the log burner, very cosy.

    Loved the cottage, loved the area. Perfect for the dog too. Probably the best Welcome Pack we've ever had in a cottage. The local pub was lovely & within walking distance, but a little pricey to go every day. Other than the one pub, it was quite a trek in the car to find other places to eat out or buy takeaway food from - just a little niggle in an otherwise perfect break. We would highly recommend this cottage.

    Certainly has the WOW factor when you walk in. Lovely cottage and everything you need is there. Plus an amazing welcome pack! Ideally set for local walks and for exploring Exmoor and North Devon. Wonderfully clean and well presented. Comfortable interior, spacious and cosy. Well equipped kitchen, I always bring my own utensils and knives, but didn't need them this time. Fully enclosed garden was safe for the dog & toddler. Locals were wonderfully helpful, friendly and chatty. Had a wonderfully relaxing time.

    Very nice cottage and lovely location although a fair drive to beaches. Very uncomfortable sofas though and lack of broadband an inconvenience as no phone reception for miles.

    Absolutely fantastic weekend, made better by sunny weather. The house is fully equipped making it both very warm and welcoming. We especially appreciated the welcome package and thought the bottle of was a lovely touch; will certainly return.
