Lying in an enviable location with the far-reaching South West countryside on its doorstep, this striking property is ideal for large families and groups. It stands proudly overlooking rolling hills and sprawling fields, with the quaint village of North Tawton on its doorstep, where you’ll find a good selection of shops and pubs.

The three-storey farmhouse is light and airy throughout, with large windows and French doors letting the outside in, making the most of those breathtaking views. The interiors are simple but refined, allowing the scenery to take centre-stage. In the open-plan kitchen/diner, you’ll find seating for the whole group - a great spot to catch up after a day of exploring. Despite the open space, it feels cosy and homely, especially on cooler evenings once you fire up the dual aspect wood burner in the sitting room.

Walk the Tarka Trail, following the former railway line which is one of the country’s longest traffic-free walking and cycling paths at 180 miles long. When you’re done walking, explore the many local breweries, cider farms and vineyards within 3 miles of the farmhouse. For a day trip, head to the historic cathedral city of Exeter (23 miles), or for a longer drive, head to North Devon with its many long sandy beaches - you have a wealth to choose from.

Could not be more thrilled with this property, it was perfect. The size of the property was fantastic for our group of 9 and the hot tub/games room was loved. Sheep at the edge of the garden and plenty of valuable information on local walking trails was ideal. Thank you so much for having us, we would return in a heartbeat.

Absolutely perfect house for a group of 10 nurses to have a pre Christmas weekend away. Cannot fault anything. Communication with the owners was great and their recommendation of a local pub for a meal was fantastic! There was enough space for a bit of peace and quiet if needed but equally comfy enough for all of us to gather together in the loungeRead more. Plenty of parking and no neighbours, apart from the sheep, to hear our terrible singing one night! Hide
