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.

About Jonathan Ball & Lynn Palethorpe

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).

Jonathan Ball & Lynn Palethorpe purchased this cottage in 2010

Three Gates Farm is situated in the heart of the East Devon countryside, within easy reach of the North and South coasts, Exmoor, Dartmoor and the Somerset border. We are easily accessible, only 15 minutes drive from the M5 and Tiverton Parkway railway station. Three Gates is a mile from Huntsham village (Huntsham Court is a popular venue for weddings and parties) and three miles from the popular town of Bampton, which has a number of excellent pubs, cafes and restaurants, as well as a good range of local shops. We are only six miles from the market town of Tiverton, the largest town in Mid Devon with a population of approximately 17,500, situated on the River Exe.

Other towns nearby include:

- Taunton (20 miles)

- Exeter (25 miles)

- Bridgewater (30 miles)

- Barnstable (32 miles)

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).
