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 (can be twin beds on request).

    Lovely cottage, can't wait to book a return stay. Wood burner had plenty of logs, just what was needed when snowing outside. Welcome pack containing local produce was a very nice touch. Can't recommend enough.

    Stable Cottage is lovely! Very well equipped, clean, and the welcome package excellent.Location is convenient to all the places we wanted to visit on the coast and the moor. We thoroughly recommend the Red Deer Safari. If there is one thing to improve, it would be the sofas, they need to be bigger and more comfortable- much needed after a day walking. Other then that, no hesitation in giving Stable cottage thumbs up!

    The cottage was the first time we had stayed in one and have to say it was great, on arrival we where greeted with a selection of nice goodies in the fridge and a very nice cake and bottle of wine on the table. We could have not had any more rain but it did not stop a nice stay each day we followed the sunny weather and found it by using the local forecast. We eat in four different pubs, with the Black Venus in the village we did go three times good food and beers, however we found the Pye Arms which was very good. Our dog Simba had a great time walking over the hills behind the cottage walks book from the very good PO. In village ten min walk very helpful owners. The cottage was cosy and very well equipped we could have just stayed in and cooked but did not. If weather had been sunny there is a great BBQ in garden you can use. For the winter a great log burner. The cottage was spotlessly clean. It is in an ideal location to explore the coast from Bude right up to minehead and Dunster back down to Tiverton. Would go again.

    Great stay at Stable cottage for my husband and I along with our 8 month old son. As people have said before really generous welcome pack on arrival. Very clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed. We were very lucky with the weather so got to take advantage of the huge bbq in the garden too. The only thing we missed was maybe a fan for each bedroom as it was absolutely roasting at night. Look out for the barn owl each evening doing his laps. Definitely visit the Black Venus pub (we did each night!) And have a cream tea in the local shop. Would def recommend.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. A quality property in a great location. The owners have put a lot of thought into ensuring guests are as comfortable as possible. The Welcome Pack was very much appreciated. We would definitely return. Minor issue with the new BBQ that we couldn't get working and part of the parasol was missing so we couldn't use it but these were both reported and didn't spoil our stay.

    We loved Stable Cottage, after all day walking it was great to come back to, felt like home. Wonderful to relax in a good hot bath or revive in a lovely shower. We can't think of anything negative about it. Peaceful, quiet and so comfortable. Perfect location for our walking plans. Thankyou*
