Property Description

"Character farm cottages in glorious countryside above an unspoilt hidden valley...with all-weather leisure facilities"

Robin Hill Farm is set in 14 acres of beautiful rolling countryside in the North Devon biosphere. The six properties, converted from stone farm barns and buildings, are centred around the old cobbled farmyard. The location offers a peaceful and secluded setting away from the daily hustle and bustle, yet it is only 3 miles to shops, entertainment and the beach. Inside the holiday cottages are well furnished and provide a relaxing haven after a long day sightseeing, walking, cycling or on the beach. The heated indoor swimming pool room includes a hot tub and a stunning conservatory attached. From the conservatory and decking area guests can enjoy the beautiful views over the valley towards Exmoor, whilst drying off or enjoy a coffee or glass of wine no matter what the weather. There is a very well equipped games room for all ages and for big and little kids video games can be enjoyed on a 60in plasma screen.
Outside the grounds have been landscaped to create two play areas, one with ball games, the other with playhouse and climbing frame. A communal patio means that adults can relax whilst watching their children play. Guests can enjoy the farm’s 14 acres of land and woodland walk which are host to a variety of wildlife and wild flowers with lovely views of Jennetts Reservoir. Nearby there is plenty to keep visitors busy. Many quaint villages await discovery - the photogenic ‘chocolate box’ village of Clovelly being of particular note. Appledore offers all the olde worlde charm of a fishing village, famous for its arts, crafts and maritime heritage. Beach lovers will delight in the wide sandy beaches, the nearest being Westward Ho!. Walkers can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the coastal path, while the Tarka Trail traces the steps of Henry Williamson’s Tarka the Otter and provides miles of traffic-free cycling (and walking) - bikes can be stored securely or hired locally. Award-winning farm parks, The Milky Way and The Big Sheep, will fascinate the younger ones. Gardens within 30 minutes’ drive include RHS Rosemoor, Docton Mill and Tapeley Park. Several local pubs nearby, with the nearest in Littleham village serving real ale and home cooked food. Shops 3 miles, pub 1½ miles.

A light, bright ground floor cottage. Entrance hall. Open-plan cosy living/dining room with fully equipped kitchen area. Door to south-facing patio and enclosed garden. Double bedroom. Twin bedroom (sleeps 2 guests or 1 guest and cot). Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A fantastic place to go, very child friendly. We loved our cottage, especially as you could go for a swim in the warm, clean, indoors pool, every day, sit in your garden and watch the kids play at the park and have a gorgeous view too! It felt like a home from home, with a fresh home made cake, cider, apple juice and fresh milk all waiting for us on arrival. Loads to do even when it rained, dvd’s, games and books and the kids (big adult ones too) can play the wii on the big screen. I would thoroughly recommend these cottages, we will definitely be back! June 2012.
  2. We have a 3 and 4 year old and found this property ideal for their age group. Well away from roads and cars we were able to relax and enjoy the amenities. The pool and games room being a real plus for rainy days and saves you money. We will go back. We felt like we were out in the sticks, but actually not far from a supermarket, so best of both worlds! March 2012.
  3. Had a lovely time at the cottage. The owners were very helpful with their recommendations on things to do, and also very flexible and accommodating with our requests. It’s a great location to explore the surrounding area. Another plus is the countryside feel just a few miles from the beach. Dec 2011.
