My wife, 11 month year old and I stayed in the Stable cottage for four nights in October. We were welcomed by Tony and shown around the house. Nice to have some cream and scones too. We loved the cottage which has a nice sized lounge, large kitchen and decent upstairs area. So convenient too with dishwasher, baby gates at top and bottom of stairs, flatscreen tv and dvd player. You can also borrow dvds for free in the games room.
We felt welcome throughout our stay and Tony showed us around the farm, despite a heavy downpour. Younger kids will love it here as there are many animals to see and a good sized playing area.
The farm is located a short drive from Woolacombe and Ilfracombe and a manageable walk from Lee Bay. It is in a lovely, serene and scenic setting.
We really found the cottage and Lower Campscott Farm to be a home from home and will be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our spacious farm cottages are set in 35 tranquil acres within our own private and picturesque valley overlooking Lee Bay, in an enviably peaceful location, with roads and neighbours over quarter of a mile away! There'll be a delicious Devon cream tea with home baked scones waiting for you when you arrive and all our 4* graded cottages and lodges are furnished and equipped to a high standard to offer you the comforts of home. Every cottage has a dishwasher, washer dryer, wifi, central heating and unlimited hot water from our green biomass boiler that help keeps our carbon footprint low and your comfort levels high! We welcome families, couples and groups alike. Children especially love the fresh air and freedom, with plenty of outdoor space to explore, and for rainy days the games room keeps everyone entertained. Spend the day on the farm and meet the animals, spot the abundant wildlife, help collect eggs or feed the ducks on our ponds. For all that, we are only a short walk along public footpaths to Lee and its local Craft Shop and traditional village pub. There are miles of public footpaths around Lee Bay and the South West Coast Path - we are happy to provide maps and can suggest walks in the local area. Only ten minutes away by car you can enjoy the family friendly and surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Putsborough and Croyde or visit Ilfracombe with its famous Victorian Tunnel beaches. The Tarka trail is right on your doorstep - so bring your bike! Explore Exmoor, take a long day out to Lundy, the Eden project or visit one of the numerous local attractions such as the Sheepdog and Falconry displays at Borough Farm (famous for Channel 5's Mist the sheepdog) which is just up the road. We have a large supply of ideas for days out. Or just simply relax...We are open all year for holidays and short breaks. Dogs are very welcome. ... more less
