Remember the hot tub, garden and indoor pool are for your exclusive use. They are not used by other people and there is no other holiday accommodation on the site.
The cottage is in a farm location on the side of the Taw Valley with magnificent views of the valley and Exmoor. It is situated exactly half way between Exmoor and Darmoor with the coast and beaches just a 25 minutes drive away.
The outside patio area with sun loungers and table is the ideal place to relax while the grassed play area with swings at the rear is suitable for all ages. A walk through the 2 acre paddock takes you on to a footpath for a 10 minute walk into the local village of Atherington with shop, post office and church. There is also an isolated farm shop just a couple of fields away selling all local produce. The views from the fields are some of the most spectacular in Devon.
The warm indoor pool (normally kept between 31 and 32 degrees C) is fed from spring water and is for your exclusive use. An outdoor hot tub is on a raised patio area outside the pool patio doors and is again for your exclusive use. There is only one holiday cottage on the farm. You can pay by credit/debit card with live availability on our own website.
