A spacious 2 bedroom detached quality barn conversion. Located in a small hamlet, in the countryside, 2 miles from Hartland Quay and North Devon coast
About Mark Brumham
We moved to this beautiful part of Devon in 2007 as part of our "New Life in the Country" plan. We found Great Philham House with its unconverted barn and could not turn down the opportunity and challenge of creating our own holiday cottage. Lorraine and I ensured that the barn was finished to a high standard, with character and luxury. We are so delighted with the result, that we stay in the cottage ourselves for an occasional holiday, even though its only next door! Having worked hard to provide the highest standard of accommodation, we would now like to welcome everyone else to come and enjoy this fantastic part of Devon and are wonderful holiday cottage.
Mark Brumham purchased this Barn in 2007
Why Mark Brumham chose Hartland
We are situated in the heart of the Hartland Peninsular and surrounded by Devon countryside. Its very difficult to accurately describe the area, as there are so many redeeming features, there is simply everything on offer here. Peaceful and tranquil surroundings, fantastic views, rugged coast line, hidden coves, sandy beaches to name but a few. You simply cant help but fall in love with the area, everyone is so friendly and welcoming, the local pubs are full of atmosphere and local ale! You can walk for miles, either in land or along the fabulous west country coastal path. The hamlet of Philham, whilst off the main routes, has easy access to the town of Hartland and the main A39, with links to Cornwall.
What makes this Barn unique
The Parlour enjoys a large, private, enclosed, child friendly courtyard which is excellent for BBQ, eating out and soaking up the sunshine. There is also a large lawn / meadow with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It is ideal for children of all ages, as there are rope swings and large trampoline available to play on. Inside there is a large open plan living area, with fully fitted kitchen, leather suite, large dinning table and a warm cast iron wood burner. There is also a games area, with multi function tabletop football / pool table. The accommodation is well appointed, with large bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, including a family bathroom, with Jack and Jill Doors and a fabulous roll top bath.

Perfect get away in North Devon beauty spot.
Title pretty much says it all, this well equipped barn conversion is perfectly located to explore the abundance of places to see and visit in this area. The property is quietly located about a mile from Hartland and is let as either a 2 or 3 bedroom accomodation (great idea) it has pretty much everything you could possibly need - would reccomend to anyone wanting to spend time in this beautiful area - Thanks
The property was spacious, clean and nicely furnished. There was a welcome pack which came in very handy. Owners were welcoming but not intrusive.
Philham Parlour is a lovely quiet get-away but also close to some beautiful places. It's one of the best places we've stayed in.
Would recommended to others
Home from Home in picturesque North Devon
Philham Parlour is a well appointed holiday cottage in quiet surroundings in beautiful North Devon. Accommodation is spacious, spotlessly clean with modern furnishings and comfortable beds, and everything you need for a relaxing holiday. In easy distance of many places to explore in Devon and Cornwall. Owners Mark and Lorraine are attentive but unobtrusive. The local produce left in the welcome pack were a nice touch. Would definitively go back.

Getting away from it all in the Devon countryside
Philham Parlour was a perfect base from which to explore North Devon. The barn was spacious, clean and had everything we needed for our stay as a family of four. We were travelling with a 3 year old and an 11 month old baby and we were provided with a high chair, travel cot and stair gate on request. Our 3 year old son was well entertained by the trampoline, chickens and football table!
The surrounding area is just stunning. Hartland Quay, Clovelly and Mouthmill Cove are all beautiful and worth a visit. The Big Sheep was a fun family day out, and we also ventured a bit further afield to Croyde to do some surfing, and to Lynton & Lynmouth in Exmoor for a day. We could honestly have stayed another few weeks exploring the area there is so much to see!
Mark and Lorraine are lovely hosts - warm, friendly and helpful. The welcome breakfast was also a nice touch. We would definitely recommend Philham Parlour as a place to stay in North Devon and hope to return one day in the future!
