English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Countryside admirers and walkers will be in their element here as there are around 13 miles of footpaths to explore!

Set in a spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park, a few hundred yards from the coast and with views of the Bristol Channel, Yenworthy Farm is situated in ‘Doone Country’, and actually appears in the novel itself. The gun which was supposedly used to repel the ‘Doones’ still hangs in the farmhouse to this day. This working farm once had its own mill and the old water wheel can still be seen. This is one of two traditional barns in the courtyard of the farm and has been sympathetically converted to offer a very high standard of accommodation throughout.
Yenworthy is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow. A haven for wildlife, it has four Sites of Special Scientific Interest and rare species of butterflies and trees. The nearest sandy beach is Lee Abbey (5 miles) and there are excellent surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton within easy driving distance. There are three pubs with restaurants within 3 miles and plenty of shops in Lynton and Lynmouth
(4 miles), Polock (7 miles), Minehead (13 miles) and Barnstaple (21 miles), which also has a popular covered market. River fishing and grazing for horses are available by arrangement. Shops 4 miles.

    Overall a great holiday, downside is that to get ANYWHERE you have to either go down Countesbury Hill (gradient 1 in 4) into Devon or down Porlock Hill (gradient 1 in 4) into Somerset. This was by far the worst aspect of the holiday. Be aware if your car is not good on steep gradients (fully loaded with all passengers) don't book this place. Our car struggled getting up Porlock Hill on the way to the Barn. Also in the icey conditions, the gradient down to the barn on the private road was hairy at the least! Large patch of frozen run-off water across the road and the car couldn't get back up the hill when we left - that was fun!! Aside from that - Barn was great, loads of room, all but one bedroom are downstairs which is not a problem. To get the heating consistent around the Barn, we turned down the upstairs radiators to 2 and set the thermostat to 20. This kept the bedrooms warm and the upstairs was not like a sweat box.

    We had a lovely family week here, with the dogs welcome! Such a beautiful setting with walks from the door and the barn has been converted into a smashing well equipped holiday home! The shops are driving distance but delivery from the internet is easy so no problem. There are plenty of coastal areas and moors walks in the area, tea rooms are plentiful and pubs are mostly dog friendly! We eat out at various local pubs/inns and had a couple of BBQs at the property. Hazel was friendly and helpful and a nice bottle red wine and lovely flowers was a nice touch! A couple minor things that didn't really bother us, the oven needs some attention and the main bedroom mattress is ready for an upgrade! We would recommend staying here and would happily come back some time!

    We really enjoyed our stay at Yenworthy Barn and would definitely return. We had a problem with the heating but this was very quickly sorted by the owner and caretaker which was very much appreciated.

    Party of 10 (7adults 3children) and 2 dogs had a lovely stay at yenworthy barn! The barn was perfect, lots of room for all the family very clean and set in a beautiful location with great scenery and walks! Went to a great pub called Blueball Inn served great food and dog friendly, was about 5 mins drive from barn on road heading towards Lynmouth. Nearest shops about 10 min drive.
