The Holiday Cottage
In the heart of unspoilt Tarka country, (from Henry Williamson's "Tarka the Otter") Bartridge Farm Cottage is ideally situated to explore the rolling landscape of Exmoor, the deep wooded valleys, rugged coastline, sandy beaches, pretty villages or bustling seaside towns.
The cottage is set in its own tranquil location next to the farmhouse amongst farmland on the side of the Taw valley. Approached along a private lane that winds its way up from the River Taw below to its commanding viewpoint on the side of the valley, it provides spectacular views for many miles around. Buzzards, deer, badgers, rabbits, foxes, owls, bats and kingfishers are amongst a number of animals that are local inhabitants.
The cottage and pool were imaginatively restored in 1992 from 17th century stone barns, retaining original features such as oak beams but with the benefit of modern comforts.
Exmoor and the famous north devon beaches are from just 25 minutes drive away. The area all around the cottage is designated by the local authority as an official area of great landscape value and just 400 metres away is one of only a few designated wild woodlands in the county. The warm indoor pool is fed from spring water. The HOT TUB is located outside the swimming pool set into the raised sunny decking area. This is a very well equipped cottage. There is ample parking next to the cottage.
We do not allow smoking in the cottage.
The cottage has been open for over 25 years (with the same owners) and the majority of bookings are from repeat business or on recommendation. The cottage is well maintained and regularly refurbished. For more information on the holiday cottage, please telephone us on 01769 560598 or email us.
