About the property

Countryside cottage sleeping 6-8 in 3-bedrooms with onsite leisure facilities

Granary Cottage is slightly tucked away from all the other cottages at the beautiful Wheel Farm, located just a couple of miles from the seaside village of Combe Martin in North Devon.

It is a lovely spacious two storey cottage that sleeps up to six in three bedrooms, one double bedroom, a twin and a bunk-bed room. There is also a sofa bed in the lounge that will accommodate two extra guests if needed. A large family bathroom has a bath with a shower overhead, a wash basin and a WC.

Guests staying at the cottage can also enjoy all the benefits of of a self-catered holiday complex, including, the indoor heated swimming pool, a sauna, a tennis court and an outside children's play area, as well as being only minutes from glorious sandy beaches or the wilds of Exmoor. As the cottage is also pet friendly, a dog walking/exercise field is also provided onsite.

On the ground floor of the cottage you will find a lovely lounge with comfy sofas and a flat screen TV with DVD player. Just off the lounge is a dining area with pine table to seat up to 8 and a well-equipped modern kitchen, which is fitted with everything you need for a self-catered holiday, including an electric oven with hob, a microwave, a dishwasher and a fridge with small freezer compartment. If needed there is an onsite laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

All three bedrooms and the family bathroom are located on the first floor of the cottage.

To the front of the cottage is a private seating area where guests can relax or take a leisurely stroll around the grounds, which include landscaped gardens and lakes.

The real beauty of Wheel Farm is it's proximity to the wonderful beaches at Woolacombe and Putsborough, and the wild expanse of Exmoor. It is also close to Ilfracombe and and the trendy surf village of Croyde. Alternatively, just down the road from the cottages is Combe Martin, which has its own small beach that is made up of a mixture of sand and shingle, and various shops and pubs.

For children the Combe Martin Wildlife Park and Exmoor Zoo are only a short drive away, as are many other attractions to suit all ages and members of the family.

Please note Granary Cottage is one of 11 cottages at Wheel Farm, it can either be booked on its own or in conjunction with one or more of the other cottages onsite to accommodate larger groups and families.

Fab weekend, lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Granary Cottage over the Easter weekend. Richard & Alli were wonderful hosts. They were very flexible with our arrival time, we ended up going for a walk on Exmoor & a pub dinner (Exmoor Forest Inn - Cow Castle walk - both great) on our way & didn't arrive until gone 9pm, but they were very relaxed about it.

The cottage is lovely, very well equipped kitchen, will all the utensils you need to cook proper meals...the only problem was the egg cups weren't big enough for the HUGE eggs they gave us for breakfast!!!

The pool & sauna are great, and although I didn't use it, others in our group enjoyed the tennis court.

The location is perfect for visiting the seaside town of Ilfracombe (recommend Lynbay fish & chip shop), mountain biking up Duncary beacon, or a paddle at the local (10mins drive) beach in Combe Martin.

We were quite noisy in our cottage (music til fairly late & a bit too much wine) but it wasn't mentioned so I presume the cottages are pretty sound proof.

All in all, a great weekend, thanks so much!

One suggestion - provide cooking oil, hand soap, tin foil & cling film in the kitchens perhaps?

Other Activities:

There is plenty to do and see nearby the cottages at Wheel Farm, whether its horse riding, cycling or fishing.

The beaches at Woolacombe, Putsborough, Saunton Sands and Croyde are all just a short drive away and are popular with families and surfers. Many beaches offer lessons for surfers of all abilities.

There are plenty of countryside walks on offer: from exploring the extensive grounds at Wheel Farm to discovering the wilds of Exmoor National Park. The South West Coast Path is also easily accessible in Combe Martin, and the Tarka Trail in Braunton.

For family friendly attractions discover the delights of Exmoor Zoo, Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park or Watermouth Castle - many of these attractions offer discounts on tickets if bought in advance via their website, so it is well worth planning these trips in advance!

Granary Cottage is one of the eleven cottages at Wheel Farm Cottages. This small complex of stone built cottages are set in the beautiful North Devon countryside just outside the popular village of Combe Martin.

Although in a quiet countryside setting, these cottages are also very close to the coast with Combe Martin less than two miles away and home to a range of shops, pub and restaurants, as well as a very cute beach set within a cove and ideal for playing in the rock pools. Also nearby is Watermouth Cove where some water-sports, such as jet-ski-ing can be experienced.

A little further afield, but still within a 10-15 minute drive are Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. The Victorian, harbour town of Ilfracombe is a beautiful destination no matter what the season, enjoy locally sourced food at one of the many restaurants, including the Michelin star Olive Room, or dine in contemporary artist Damien Hirst's 11, The Quay, which sits alongside the harbour. There are also several shops, galleries and supermarkets located within the town. Woolacombe is renowned for its three mile long golden beach that has won numerous awards over the years, this beach-side town is a favourite with families and plenty to keep everyone entertained.

Other nearby places to visit, include the market town of Barnstaple, the surfing village of Croyde and the quaint streets of Appledore,

If heading inland, Exmoor National Park is less than a 30 minute drive and has several wonderful pubs and tea rooms to discover. Alternatively, see where Exmoor meets the sea at Lynton and Lynmouth.
