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


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. Two traditional barns in the courtyard of the farm have 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.

Spacious, beamed living/dining room with wood-burning stove, wooden floor and French door to garden. Spacious, modern, well-equipped, fitted kitchen with beams. Double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet including disabled facilities. Lower ground floor: Two double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and toilet, one with additional set of bunk beds (for +2). Twin bedroom. Bathroom with shower and toilet. Separate toilet with basin.

    We had a lovely holiday at Yenworthy Barn. We were made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Nice and quiet with walks on the door step. Thank you Hazel & family. Dave G.

    A lovely property, set in a beautiful and incredibly well kept and managed farm. Plenty of space for our group of 8, and an open plan area that allowed us to be together when we wanted but also do separate things at other times. A good location for exmoor and the coast too.

    We had a really lovely time here and would definitely come again. The Barn is spacious and comfortable and we had a great welcome from Hazel, who looks after the Barn. Lynmouth is a friendly place and although the views from the Barn itself aren't great, the scenery surrounding it is truly spectacular. The drive down through the lane is beautiful with masses of wild foxgloves (June) and a sense of seclusion and anticipation.

    The weekend was to celebrate my 50th birthday with girlfriends. There were 9 in our party and we had he best time. Yenworthy Barn is in a superb location, it is well equipped....everything you need for all types of catering, even cake tins if you wanted to bake! I highly recommend and will definitely be going back, would love to go in the Autumn/Winter and get the log burner working!

    It's a great location and we appreciated the fact that the owners were relaxed about access onto and through the farm. The walk down to the beach is beautiful. Pluses: warm, spacious, very good showers and plenty of sensible, standard IKEA kitchen equipment. Acceptably but not expertly clean (bathrooms etc were fine but we went under the sofas to retrieve some of our kids' toys and found a whole host of other detritus). Minuses: cheap beds and bedlinen (including those stupid duvet covers with no fastenings, which means the duvet keeps escaping). The whole place looks like it was furnished on a budget in the early 90s and hasn't been updated since. Tired carpets and curtains ( complete with mould stains in our bedroom). A LOT of cheap pine. If you want somewhere warm and practical where you won't need to fret about children or dogs, it's great. If you put a premium on sleeping comfortably and waking up to a nice view (the bedrooms are downstairs and look on to the courtyard) then maybe look elsewhere.
