Great views and a cream tea! (selected discounts for two guests outside school holidays)
Umberleigh Barton Farm is set in 400 acres of the beautiful Taw Valley, made famous by "Tarka the Otter" The original farm dates back to the 9th century and two barns have been skilfully converted into high quality holiday accommodation, combining many original features with every modern comfort. Walk almost from the doorstep down to the River Taw where Herons and Kingfishers are often found on the water's edge, or take a stroll through the woodland and catch site of Red Deer. The nearby historic town of Barnstaple is just fifteen minutes drive away and a choice of wonderful sandy beaches are within a thirty minute drive. Information on walks is provided at the cottage and you may also purchase a river fishing permit by prior arrangement.
Taw Valley and the adjacent Meadow View Cottage (also sleeping up to 3) offer a peaceful and relaxing base and are ideal to book together for extended family and friends (a small discount applies if booking both together for July and August).
The panoramic views are quite stunning and the barn has been designed to take full advantage having full width windows and wide opening glass doors. A high vaulted open plan living room with kitchen and dining area features original stonework, slate tiled flooring, stripped pine latch doors and oak beams. A single room is on the ground floor together with a pristine modern bathroom. Climbing the wooden staircase to the galleried landing looking down over the living room, you will find a sunny double bedroom with amazing far reaching countryside views. Outside an attractive slate patio area and lovely lawned garden is an ideal spot to relax, and you are very welcome to enjoy the plesant countryside walks available on the farm. For couples or small families wishing to get away from it all in a rural location.
