4 STAR HOLIDAY COTTAGES IN GLORIOUS DEVON COUNTRYSIDE WITH INDOOR POOL

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Tiverton - Three Gates Farm

French, Spanish and Greek spoken

Three Gates is a converted 17th Century farm, with five luxury holiday cottages sleeping from 2 to 6 people (22 in total), set in the beautiful East Devon countryside only 15 minutes drive from the M5 (J27). We have two acres of grounds, a super large indoor swimming pool (33 ft), sauna, fitness room, children’s play areas, 12 ft trampoline and laundry facilities. All cottages are well equipped with central heating, dishwashers, flat screen TVs with free view, DVD players and free Wifi Internet access. Our five cottages are as follows:

The Granary (sleeps 4) detached two storey stone country cottage.Two bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin). 1 family bathroom. Log burner. Enclosed patio with garden furniture.

The Long Barn (sleeps 5/6) attractive single storey barn conversion, full of country charm. Three bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin, 1 single/twin). Two family bathrooms. Patio with garden furniture, overlooking grounds and play area.

The Smithy (sleeps 6) spacious single storey barn conversion with many original features. Three ensuite bedrooms (1 double, 2 twins). Large conservatory. Log burner (ingle nook fireplace). Enclosed private garden with garden furniture and stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

May Cottage (sleeps 4) bright and attractive single storey barn conversion with stunning views. Two bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin). 1 family bathroom. Patio with garden furniture, overlooking grounds and play area.

Nuthatch (sleeps 2) romantic cosy retreat for 2. One double bedroom with four poster bed and ensuite bathroom. Log burner. Single storey barn conversion.

Three Gates Farm is situated in rural mid Devon near Tiverton, close to the Devon/ Somerset border. We are easily accessible, only 15 minutes drive from the M5 (J27) and Tiverton Parkway railway station (two hours to Paddington). We are just outside Huntsham village, three miles from the popular town of Bampton, which has a range of excellent pubs, restaurants, cafes and local shops and six miles from the market town of Tiverton. We are within easy reach of the beaches of the North and South coasts (about 40 minutes drive to either coast) as well as Exmoor and Dartmoor.

Three Gates is very well placed for a wide variety of activities - from spending a day on horseback to fossil hunting. In the local area you can visit the National Trust properties at Knightshayes and Killerton, shop at Bickleigh Mill and ride the little trains at the Devonshire Railway Center, or get lost in the Maize Maze (summer only). Whilst shopping in Tiverton call in at the refurbished Pannier Market, visit Tiverton Castle or learn more about the local history at the Tiverton Museum. You can race quad bikes at Quad World, drive real diggers at Diggerland, or have fun all day at Creely Adventure Park. If you enjoy clay pigeon shooting or fancy having a go then you couldn't do better than to book a session at the Shaldon Shooting School. Why not hire bikes and cycle along the picturesque Grand Western Canal or take a leisurely trip on a horse drawn barge. You could also visit nearby Exmoor and its pretty towns such as Dulverton and Dunster. There's plenty to do on the moor such as falconry, go on safari, pony trekking, walking and cycling.

Further afield the coasts of north and south Devon, Somerset and Dorset are definitely worth a visit. To the north there are the beautiful sandy beaches at Croyde, Woolacombe, and Saunton and to the south the fascinating Jurassic coast - lose a few hours fossil hunting at Lyme Regis. While on the south coast pay a visit to the Donkey Sanctuary, take a ride on the Seaton Trams or have fun at Pecorama.

We (Jonathan, Lynn and Ellie May) moved to Three Gates Farm in July 2010. We were first shown Three Gates Farm on the popular BBC programme 'Escape to the Country'! Our programme was first aired in February 2010 (series 10) and is being repeated every now and then! The Escape to the Country team revisited us in 2011 to show how our life had changed after buying property 'number two'. Our revisit appears alongside another couple's search in North Devon (series 12).

Relaxing Winter Break at lovely Granary Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
My partner and I were in need of a relaxing winter break and found the perfect place - Granary Cottage at Three Gates Farm.

Set on a hillside overlooking spectacular rolling hills, the cottage is well placed to explore Exmoor National Park, Dunster, Porlock, Lynton, Exeter, Exmouth - all providing very different days out.

Granary Cottage is very well appointed, extremely comfortable and the owners have thought of every little detail to ensure a great stay. The log burner made the cottage very cosy and we really didn't want to drag ourselves away from this relaxing haven.

Two things that really make Granary Cottage stand out - the swimming pool, which we used each day, and also the owners, Lynn and Jonathan who are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble.

The cottage and swimming pool are immaculate and we enjoyed being in such a relaxing environment.

As we are planning a return visit, we asked for 'a nosy' around some of the other cottages at Three Gates Farm. Each has it's own character, great views, and high standards of cleanliness.

Highly recommended.

Fantastic accomodation

  • 5 out of 5
Couldn't asked for anything more, The Granary was immaculate, comfy and a home from home. Love the new bathroom. The setting is so peaceful and everyone is well catered for. My three year old had a ball as usual. We are definately going back.

Familienurlaub in Südengland

  • 5 out of 5
Ein wunderschönes, idyllisch und sehr ruhig gelegenes Ferienhaus. Es war alles so wie beschrieben, sauber und gepflegt. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Anwesen bietet einen prima Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge an die Küste, ins Dartmoor, nach Cornwall usw.. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden das Ferienhaus jederzeit weiterempfehlen.

Perfekter Urlaubsort THREE GATES FARM in Devon!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Unser Cottage hatte nur einen kleinen Mangel, es fehlt ein zusätzlicher Sessel.
Cottage super, Pool sauber und gepflegt ... alles sehr schön!
Die Farm ist sehr gepflegt und idyllisch - romantisch.
Besonders liebevoll sind Lynn, Jonathan und Tochter :-)
Devon ist wunderschön und beeindruckend.
Leider benötigt man ein Auto, da keine öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel in der Nähe sind. Mit Auto ist aber alles nötige gut erreichbar.
Wir hatten Anfang Mai gutes Wetter, viel Sonne und wenig Regen.
Sehr freundliche Menschen gab es immer wieder und überall.
Süd England bietet viele Attraktionen und hat ein tolles Klima.
Die Küche ist typisch englisch ;-)
Ich würde jeder Zeit wieder hin fahren!
Allerdings wird kaum deutsch gesprochen und man sollte sich zu helfen wissen.
Aber immer wieder ein Besuch wert!
Danke an Lynn & Jonathan :-)

Geweldig!

  • 5 out of 5
We hebben ontzettend genoten van onze vakantie bij Lynn en Jonathan. The granary was top, zwembad dagelijks gebruikt. Alles bijzonder netjes en schoon en onze meiden van 3 en 5 mochten eieren rapen. Omgeving mooi, Engelsen ongelooflijk beleefd en goed te bereiken vanaf Dover. Het is een aanrader!
