Crowbeare Farm is situated at the end of a private lane and adjacent to the owner’s home. These semi-detached holiday properties are set in a peaceful location, surrounded by fields and streams, but with the added advantage of being only a short distance from the historic town of Great Torrington. Taw (ref 31062) and Torridge (ref 31063) have been converted from the old milking parlour, with sympathetic conversion and decoration keeping all of the old stone and brick work on the outside as original as possible. Taw is the smaller of the two, with one galleried bedroom looking onto the fields. It is open plan, light and airy with a small south facing patio to sit and enjoy the view. Torridge has two bedrooms, one double with an additional single upstairs and twin zip and link beds downstairs. The ground is level from the parking area through into the kitchen, first bedroom and the living room. The downstairs bedroom is suitable for those with walking difficulties or those who use a wheelchair. It has an en-suite shower room and a door out onto the south-facing patio. The living room also has a ramp from the patio doors to the patio. Crowbeare Farm has a small herd of pedigree South Devon cows. They are a quiet, docile breed with each one having its own character. Early to late summer is when they have their calves. They are fascinating to watch and friendly. The cottages are located a short distance from the civil war town of Great Torrington. This has a good range of shops and amenities, as well as the 1644 visitor centre, Dartington Crystal factory and just on the outskirts of the town, RHS Rosemoor is a must for keen gardeners. The cottages are ideally situated for exploring the other attractions this part of Devon has to offer. There are stunning beaches at Woolacombe and Sandymouth. Enjoy a day out at Hartland and visit the lighthouse, Hartland Quay and the historic fishing village of Clovelly. There are numerous National Trust properties in the surrounding area to enjoy. The town of Bideford lies close by where you will find most amenities and at Bideford’s quay, you can book a trip to Lundy Island. Slightly further afield, there is the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks. Beach lovers will delight in the wide sandy beaches, the nearest being at Westward Ho! A day out at The Milky Way and The Big Sheep will keep the younger ones entertained. Beach 10 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

This is a lovely spot if you want to be away from it all, and just enjoy quiet time on a working farm. The owners are really lovely, and we really appreciated the complementary milk waiting for us in the fridge. Will certainly be on our 'revisit' list!

We had a wonderful holiday in Great Torrington. The cottage was a real home from home. The open plan living and bedroom gave a great sense of light and air. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, we wanted for nothing. The bed was comfortable with a range of pillows available. It was very quiet which was just what we’d hoped for but we did wonder if we would get an early morning call from the cows, it seemed even they were muted. Taw cottage is also perfectly located for RHS Rosemoor and the Dartington glass factory both of which we wanted to visit. There are also a variety of National Trust properties close by and some fabulous beaches. All in all we couldn’t have wanted for more even the weather was on our side.
