The holiday cottage is a traditional “linhay”. These were originally built as cattle accommodation, but of course ours is now a very well-appointed 2 bedroom cottage with full CH and a log-burning stove. Downstairs there is a porch and cloakroom with WC and wash-basin, and a large open-plan lounge and kitchen/dining area. The kitchen is very well-equipped (including a washing machine) and has ample work tops and cupboards.

The lounge has a Free-Sat TV, DVD player and wi-fi.
There are 2 bedrooms, one double and one with 2 single beds. Each has its own ensuite shower, WC and wash-basin, and there are great views.

This really is a lovely base for exploring Exmoor and the spectacular North Devon coast. The scenery around Hollacombe Farm is magnificent and varied: You can enjoy fine prospects of the steep pastures and high moorland of Exmoor, before plunging down, beside the ancient woodland of Cowley Wood, into the secluded valley that forms the eastern part of the farm.

Just 4 miles from the coast, we are only a short distance from the surfing at Woolacombe and Croyde. We are also ideally placed for those wanting to explore Exmoor and North Devon. In addition, we are just 1/2 mile from a well-run family pub with a good play area. 

There has been a farm at Hollacombe since Anglo-Saxon times and we like to maintain traditional links by keeping Exmoor Horn sheep and “Red Ruby” Devon cattle, both local breeds. Guests are welcome to get involved with the various farm activities, such as lambing and feeding. We are also proud of our wildlife trail and hide which the Devon Wildlife Trust helped design. Recently we were proud to receive the Devon Wildlife Trust’s Bronze Certificate for contributions to local wildlife and the natural environment
