This spacious wing of an attractive 18th Century farmhouse is located in a pretty Exmoor Hamlet close to the village of Parracombe and equidistant to the popular Exmoor coastal villages of Lynton and Combe Martin. This lovely property is very comfortably furnished and is ideal for families and couples with great amenities including three bedrooms and four bathrooms and with a private hot tub for that added luxury.  This is a wonderful area for walkers with an abundance of footpaths close by and easy access to spectacular coastal paths in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This quiet location is a peaceful retreat after a day out exploring the surrounding Exmoor countryside by foot, horseback or car. However if you are looking for sandy beaches there are small coves within a short drive and the large sandy surfing beaches of Woolacombe Bay are only a 20 minute scenic drive. With two interconnecting lounge areas, multi-generational family groups will appreciate this additional space with each offering comfy seating for 5 and one with a wood burner in large inglenook fireplace. An attractive dining room is adjacent to a newly fitted and well-equipped kitchen and these are great facilities for formal evening meals or leisurely breakfasts whilst making plans for the day ahead. Completing the ground floor area is a newly fitted shower room adjacent to an external door which opens out onto a fully enclosed stone patio with private hot tub for 5. Three good sized and attractive bedrooms and a family shower room are on the first floor. A double with ensuite shower, a family room with twin beds plus bunks and a further double room which leads through to a single bedroom area and ensuite facilities. A small fully enclosed garden can be found at the front of the farmhouse and a large elevated lawned garden area (steps access) offers beautiful countryside views.  Visitors have shared use of a table tennis table in an adjacent barn and with the owners riding stables next door why not take advantage and explore this special part of North Devon on horseback.  Young and not so young riders are welcome and lessons can be arranged (all at an extra charge).  This spacious, attractive and well appointed property will not disappoint and will soon become a firm favourite with visitors to Exmoor and North Devon .

Lower Dean Farm is a fantastic place to stay for families. We had an amazing week there. The house is totally perfect!! Huge!! Well equipped. It’s close to all the tourist spots but just that little bit further out to enjoy peace and tranquility. I definitely recommend you book it without question!!

Mrs P,

A spacious holiday home which had plenty of space for our extended family group. It was spotlessly clean. Travelling with young children we did move some of the vases / glass dishes to avoid any accidents! Welcome hosts who were available but not hovering, the children enjoyed saying hello to the horses daily, they were a bit too young for riding lessons. Lots to do in the area for young children, the Big Sheep and Waterford Castle and Theme Park went down very well with ours, as did the nearby steam trains and the cliff lifts. Can also recommend the chippy at the bottom of the cliff lift (turn right as you come out and it’s a few shops down). The hot tub at the house was well used and good to relax in, everything we needed kitchen wise was there too. A very good week. Thank you

Mrs A,

A lovely property with all the things we needed for a relaxing break. Tracy and Ashley were so accommodating and helpful. The hot tub and table tennis were a great hit! My daughter and her cousin spent a lot of time in the stables with the horses (which they loved!) We also arranged a horse-riding / training session for the girls - this was a big highlight for my daughter and carefully thought out as she had a broken leg! Location is great for long walks. The Pyre Arms nearby is a great place for a really good meal out and highly recommended.

Mrs H,

The owners lived next door and were extremely welcoming and helpful - not only when we arrived but for anything else that we needed. The hot tub was a particular treat and even in the February cold and rain, we really enjoyed sitting in the hot tub as it was under cover. An amazing experience.

Ms M H,
