A return visit to this lovely farm, we rented all 3 cottages and brought the family. They all enjoyed it as much as we had on our previous visit. Once again Dave and his family couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. These are great well equipped cottages, perfectly located for exploring Exmoor. Having your own secure garden is perfect for the dogs and all 3 cottages are kitted out to accommodate them also. However if you aren't travelling with dogs don't be put off - the cottages are immaculately cleaned and have no "doggy" smell - you honestly wouldn't no anyone else's dog had ever been in residence. There are so many walks directly from the farm and Exford with its two lovely pubs is only a few minutes walk along the river footpath. We were blessed with lovely weather so could really enjoy the location with family BBQ's relaxing in the garden overlooking the river with a cold local cider. We will definitely be back and there is still more of Exmoor to explore.
Again we found rowan warm and spotlessly clean. Michelle and Dave are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Beautiful area , lovely walk's right on the doorstep. Dog heaven.
This was my second Christmas break spent in Rowan cottage, on Court Farm with my partner and his family.
The cottage itself is ideal with a large kitchen perfect for evenings of food, drinks and games, a comfy sitting room with log burner for the more chilled evenings and a large enclosed garden perfect for our two dogs to be let out unattended as there was no way for them to escape into the stream that runs behind the house. We were pleasantly surprised to find the bathroom had been updated with a shower enclosure this year and further pleased to find a good shower, this can make all the difference to a weeks stay!
The location is perfect with plenty of walks from the cottage but also the 5 minute walk from the cottage to the centre of the village where the boys got their papers from the shop in the mornings and we all stumbled home from the pub in the afternoon/evening.
The owners of Court Farm are very welcoming and approachable through out the week should you have any problems or queries.
If you have a larger crowd, as we did, then you can also hire the cottage next door, another 2 bed and open up the gate in the garden to join the two outside spaces too. Both kitchens and living areas of the cottage were big enough to accommodate all 7 of us and the 3 dogs we had between us - perfect for Christmas!
Rowan Cottage at Exford is a perfect holiday home. Central for visiting Exmoor and coastal towns and villages. Spotlessly clean with every utensil/appliance you could wish for.
The cottage was in a lovely location and very clean with everything you need. Hosts were very friendly and helpful with nothing too much trouble. The area was gorgeous if you like the outdoors.
Our second visit this year to this wonderful location. The accommodation was excellent and our hosts Dave and Michelle were so helpful. This is the perfect location for a rural getaway, which caters for all our needs. With our two border collie and all the great walks right on your doorstep, we could not wish for anything better. And just to top it off, the weather conditions were perfect for this time of year ( trekking in shorts in October - heaven). We have been back to the village of Exford for the past four years and we are still thrilled by the beauty of the surrounding area and we still have so much more to explore. Court Farm will most definitely be our base camp for many years to come. See you all again soon
