A period farmhouse, surrounded by 65 acres of stunning Devonshire countryside, where nature thrives, that’s a fantastic and intimate place for groups of families or friends to relax or celebrate a special occasion.
The farmhouse has been renovated by its owner who is passionate about wildlife, sustainable farming and giving guests a place to disconnect from everyday life and reconnect with nature. It’s the ideal luxury retreat for families and groups to socialise and celebrate, or even host an intimate wedding, in the beautiful Devon countryside. In contrast to the surrounding natural habitats that are left beautifully wild rather than manicured, the interior is very elegant. There’s a blissful, welcoming feel: think comfy sofas, open fires – including an inglenook and gathering in the farmhouse kitchen for good food and good chat. Get ready to enjoy laid back country living with days spent playing garden games or feasting on barbecued morsels and evenings singing along around the piano or toasting marshmallows over the firepit beneath the dark skies of Exmoor. If and when you feel the desire to stray, the village shops and pub of Bampton are in easy reach.

Why we love this

  • An attractive Grade II-listed farmhouse in rural Devon
  • Set on 65 acres of beautiful, wild farmland surrounded by rolling hills
  • Excellent location for country walks and exploring Exmoor National Park

Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

The house’s origins can be traced back 750 years and the are some amazing period features, including a medieval hallway. Plus, there is plenty of space to socialise and entertain together, or to find your own slice of solitude.

Unwind in the lounge with its plump sofas and real fire. Or retire to the drawing room where you can watch TV, make use of the WiFi, listen to music through the Sonos sound system or put your feet up beside the log burner. If you’re in the mood for a few live tunes, there’s a piano for a good old sing-along.

The heart of the house is the farmhouse kitchen, which has a slate floor and wooden beams, where a huge dining table seating up to 16 people invites you to sit, dine and drink in good company. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need including an electric range oven with five induction rings, two fridges, a microwave, a double toaster and two dishwashers.

There’s also a study room for anyone who wants total peace and quiet. Should the idea of fun and games come calling, head to the small games room outside where you can commence a friendly ping pong tournament!

If you return from country walks and playing outside dirty, there’s a handy boot room with a cloakroom with a WC and basin where you can store muddy boots and get cleaned up.

The farmhouse has six bedrooms. Bedroom one comprises a super-king-size bed and two single beds with an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom two has a super-king-size bed and a private bathroom down the landing. Bedroom three has a super-king-size bed and a single bed with a private bathroom down the landing. Bedroom four has a super-king-size bed and two single beds and an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom five has a super-king-size bed and an en-suite shower room.

Bedroom six is on the ground floor and has a single bed and an en-suite with a shower cubicle. The room works for guests with mobility issues and there is also a ramp for the front doorstep into the house.

Outside, there is a terrace with a charcoal barbecue, a fire pit and outdoor furniture for hosting family meals and leisurely celebratory affairs alfresco. While the hot tub is perfect for relaxing, for those with a little more energy there’s giant Jenga and Connect 4, boules and croquet.

The owners will greet you on arrival and show you into the property. There is also a key safe where you can access the key to the property for a self-check-in.

During the restoration of the farmhouse and the farmland around it, two ponds were rejuvenated and now brim with life. The property also sponsors the British Dragonfly Society that works to conserve the species and their wetland habitats.

Location

The neighbourhood

Your closest neighbours are ewes and horses, plus a herd of deer. However, you’ll find plenty of amenities in Bampton, less than a quarter of a mile away, including a good local butcher and a baker, as well as a fish and chip shop and pubs. There are plenty of country inns and restaurants locally that serve great food using fresh, local produce – perfect for a lazy lunch or evening meal. Meanwhile, the nearest supermarket is in Tiverton.

Children will love looking for the farm animals, as well as the farmhouse cat, or playing hide and seek in the garden. For grown-ups, clay-pigeon shooting and archery can be arranged on-site.
