Nestled in the rolling Devon countryside this wing of a pretty, thatched 17th century Devon Farmhouse provides an extremely spacious holiday home for friends and family to enjoy. Nethercott Manor Farm is still very much a working farm with cattle and sheep and is conveniently situated just a few miles off the main North Devon link road making it an ideal location for those wishing to explore the wonders of Exmoor and its surrounding villages, towns and coastal beauty spots. The bustling market town of South Molton is a scenic 6 miles drive, which offers a wide range of amenities from a supermarket, swimming pool, bank and boutique style shops, or if it’s just a village shop/Post office you’re after than Bishops Nympton is a closer 3 miles. Back on the farm, visitors have access to over 160 acres of land, direct from the garden, which the four-legged family members will love, especially the stream to cool off in the summer months.

Stepping through the front door you get an idea of how spacious the property is, with large tiled hallway, cloakroom off with downstairs WC, and curved staircase with large church style window. The kitchen is beautifully decorated and in keeping with the farmhouse style, with exposed wood flooring, long dining table, large centre island and Aga which can be used to cook on, however there is a separate electric cooker with hob if you prefer. A utility room with washing machine, dishwasher and butler sink along with another study area is located off the kitchen, providing plenty of space for family pets to have their own area of the house, or for children to plug in their own games console. On the west side of the house the living room provides comfort and style with crushed velvet sofas, wood burner in stone inglenook, large flat screen TV and patio doors which open up onto the garden. Upstairs there is a large landing area with two bedrooms off, one King size with ensuite and garden views and a further Super king which can be changed into twins on request. There is also a family bathroom with bath and separate WC. Outside there is a large garden with seating area and swing bench, a gate leads through to the next field where guests are welcome to walk down to the stream at the bottom and enjoy evening walks in the surrounding countryside.

Exceedingly large property, Best we have stayed in the last 30 years. Very rural location but only 2 miles from main trunk road. Great views from Windows,Inc sheep and cattle. Walled garden is great for an evening aperitif. Stream and ford about 200 metre's away great for kid's to paddle. Easy parking in front of house. Nearest town South molton has an excellent pannier market. Couldn't fault it at all. Will definitely return.

Mr M,

On arrival this property was all we could have hoped for. Characterful, spacious and just perfect for us with our 4 dogs. Plenty of kitchen space and facilities. Very comfy bed - so a great night's sleep.

Mrs B,

We spent a lovely week at Nethercott Manor. Lovely comfy property with everything you would need . Enclosed garden perfect for our dogs. Highly recommended!

Mrs B,

I cannot recommend this property highly enough. It is incredibly spacious (there were just two of us), and the whole property just had a wonderful cosy feel in spite of the size. It was also delightfully quirky which is to be expected from a very old property. My Labradors loved the large garden, and we were ideally placed to explore both the North and South Devon coasts – and indeed both national parks. Marie the owner could not have done more to ensure we were both safe and comfortable, and quite frankly, we did not want to leave. If you want a traditional thatched (very large) cottage to stay in, then you cannot go wrong with Nethercott Manor. I could not fault either the property or the location. I certainly hope to return in the not too distant future.

Mrs N S,
