About the property


Welcome to New Mill Farm, New Mill Cottage is a genuine 300 year old stone-built cottage, originally an old Mill House, with a brown trout stream flowing past the front, where Dippers, Wagtails and the occasional Kingfisher can be admired along with the resident Mallard Ducks who often come calling for their breakfast. We have our own A.B.R.S. Approved Horse Riding Stables located on the farm, so why not experience the spectacular Exmoor views from horse back! We are well placed to explore Exmoor and only 2 miles outside Lynton & Lynmouth.

About Susan Bingham

We live on beautiful Exmoor, on the family farm with our two sons and Grandma B. We have sheep, horses and Tango our grand farm cat. From the farm we have spectacular views of Exmoor, a great place to live and raise a family.

Susan Bingham purchased this cottage in 1960

Why Susan Bingham chose Lynton

Welcome to New Mill Farm, a 100 acre working Exmoor sheep farm situated in its own secluded sheltered Exmoor Valley with a brown trout stream and free fishing available for our guests. The farm is approached by a private drive directly from the main A39 coast road. Our location is perfect for all, with plenty of open space. For the more energetic, the farm has it's own ABRS approved riding stables and has access to footpaths, one leading up to the Moor and in the other direction down to the coast. The local bus stops at the top of the drive for those who would like to leave their car behind. We have ample car parking.

What makes this cottage unique

From New Mill Farm you will be able to explore our beautiful part of Exmoor as well as North Devon and West Somerset. Lynton & Lynmouth, Valley of Rocks, Watersmeet, Lee Bay & Woody Bay only 3 miles away. Barnstaple, Ilfracombe, South Molton & Minehead are 20 miles, and the main sand and surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton are 40 minutes by car. A great place to relax & unwind......... We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Its everything we dreamed of and more and will make our New Years eve even more special. We are already planning when we can next get away to come and stay. Thank you for a lovely weekend."
