Certificate of Excellence
For all the family: You will find us at the end of a lane set above a stunning hidden North Devon valley. With heated indoor pool, hot tub, indoor and outdoors play, and 14 acres to roam. At Robin Hill Farm Cottages we have six character holiday cottages converted from former farm barns with exposed stone walls and beams. Our cottages sleep either four or six plus cot. Three are dog friendly and Wren Cottage has a woodburning stove. We have excellent all weather leisure facilities (heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub, chill out conservatory & sun deck, games room). PLUS 14 acres of wildlife and wild flower filled pasture and woodland to explore. Even though we're tucked away amongst green fields, it is only 4 miles to Westward Ho! Beach, The Big Sheep, South West Coast Path and Tarka Trail in Bideford. We're proud to have earned the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2017 - three years in a row and look forward to welcoming you for a relaxing and energising North Devon holiday.

We have just returned from a family holiday, staying in four of the very well equipped cottages. The seven children aged between 2 and 11 made full use of the pool and games room, as did the nine adults. Never a boring moment! The elevated rural location offers wonderful views.

We are thrilled that your family gathering for Christmas was so enjoyable. It was a pleasure to have you all staying with us and we are so pleased that you all had such fun in our pool and games room. What a relief that Santa's reindeer knew to stop here and that the rain stopped so we had a dry week. Thank you very much, Annelise, for your review. We hope to welcome you back before too long, Best wishes Jill & Paul

We've just arrived home from a great 5 night stay in Puffin Cottage. The cottage was superbly stocked, Jill has thought of everything. The cottage was lovely and warm and felt so homely. Our 3 children swam every day and used the games room. The areas are very well kept. We

We're so pleased that you had such a good Half Term holiday in Puffin Cottage and that your three children made the most of our pool and games room. We were very impressed with your big cycle ride and walk from Appledore to Westward Ho! too. Thank you Gemma for reviewing us and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back. Best wishes Jill & Paul

We are delighted that you and your family had such an enjoyable weekend with plenty to entertain all generations. Thank you very much, Sue, for recommending us as a family/group venue - we have the cottage configurations to suit a multigenerational stay in one cottage (as you had) or a multi-cottage combination (for those who want a bit more of their own space!). It was a pleasure to meet you and have you to stay and we very much look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes Jill & Paul

Lovely welcome and tour around the property and facilities. From the lemon drizzle cake to the dog crate and dog towels, from the coffee machine to the conservatory drinks cooler every aspect of our stay had been catered for. Very comfortable property, great views and peaceful.

Hi Simon, We have two cottages available for 2 nights from Friday 10th - they both sleep 6 so ideal for your party of 12. In addition to the cottages, we have a heated indoor swimming pool, shared hot tub and games room plus out door play areas (ideal to burn off energy between meeting up with your local friends); and we have 14 acres of pasture and woodland to explore if you have the time. The 2 night price is £586 per cottage, £1172 in total. Take a look at our website - the available cottages are Puffin and Heron. Both have kingsized doubles and twin bedrooms. Heron has a bunk room and Puffin a 'cabin' bedroom with two built in beds in a compact L formation. The cottages have their own enclosed gardens, in the case of Heron it has level access to the upper play area with climbing frame and to the leisure facilities beyond. Please do call or email us if you'd like more information. We look forward to hearing from you Kind regards Jill & Paul

"Swallow is small but perfectly formed!"
"No such thing as a "bad" room here, but Swift Cottage has a few steps so probably not suitable if they're an issue for you."
"all cottages have good facilities and are quiet, with gardens."
"check whether your cottage is dog-friendly or not"
