Milk Churn is the former dairy located at South Cockerham, which has been beautifully converted by the owners.  The cottage nestles in 15 acres of rolling Devon countryside, yet is just a short drive from a good choice of places to visit and enjoy in North Devon. The property is located on the southern edge of Exmoor, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, consisting of romantic open moorland, ancient wooded valleys and stunning Heritage Coast. Exmoor is great for peace and tranquility but is also a haven for walkers and those looking for outdoor activities. Take a drive out to Lynton and Lynmouth and enjoy the stunning Valley of the Rocks. A good choice of shops, pubs and tearooms are to be found in the market town of South Molton, which is a short drive away. Slightly further afield is the riverside town of Barnstaple, with the golden sandy beaches of North Devon beyond, including the UK's best beach at Woolacombe (TripAdvisor reviews). The historic city of Exeter lies to the south east and is another day trip option.

An enjoyable feature of any stay at South Cockerham will undoubtedly be the estates animals - alpacas, horses, chickens and a variety of birdlife. A number of the animals have been rescued and nursed back to health by the owners. You are more than welcome to watch the animals being fed, help collect the eggs and if you time it right, watch the alpacas being shorn in June. Also enjoy a Devon cream tea and welcome pack on arrival, which is full of locally sourced produce.

Milk Churn has its own south facing patio area just outside its front door where you can sit and take in the view and perhaps relax with a glass of wine or an evening meal after a busy day exploring. The estate offers guests the use of a shared tennis court, set in the landscaped gardens. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen and dining area which leads into a cosy sitting room area with a wood burner in the corner, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. On the first floor the double bedroom and twin bedded room share a bathroom. Milk Churn always recieves great feedback from guests that stay here and it won't be hard to see why couples and families feel it is a perfect place to take holidays and breaks at any time of year.

This was our second visit to Milk Churn which offers very comfortable accommodation with everything you might need to self cater for a week or longer. The property is in a very good location to explore both Exmoor and the North Devon coast by car and the town of South Molton is a short drive away. There are lots of books and leaflets about the area in the accommodation and the welcome goodies left by the hosts were much appreciated.

Mrs Jennifer L,

Friendly and efficient service which left no questions left to ask. An absolute pleasure from the moment we drove through the gate to the moment they closed behind us. A near perfect holiday.

Mr Graeme S,
