Northleigh Farm Holiday Cottages

Northleigh Farm Holiday Cottages provide the ideal place to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday in the beautiful East Devon rolling countryside. This is an ideal location to relax in a tranquil setting yet within easy reach of the coast and the many attractions and places of interest that this area has to offer.

On the edge of the village of Northleigh, Northleigh Farm is four miles from Honiton and Colyton and offers three four star self-catering holiday cottages that can accommodate four to six guests or parties of up to fourteen if rented together. Located in a courtyard setting, the cottages are fully equipped, extremely comfortable and afford stunning views from over the surrounding countryside of the Coly Valley.

Northleigh Farm is a small working farm rearing beef cattle and from time to time Gloucester Old Spot pigs and the owners are always happy to show guests around the farm. There are plenty of chickens and ducks to see which, most of the year, provide a good supply of eggs which guests can purchase. The farm is very dog friendly and is in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the East Devon Way passing right by, providing perfect access to explore the quiet footpaths and lanes of this hidden corner of Devon.

The recently designated World Heritage Jurassic coastline is only five to six miles away from the farm with the delightful seaside villages of Beer and Branscombe and larger seaside towns such as Lyme Regis and Sidmouth within easy reach. Further afield and just fifteen miles is the cathedral City of Exeter and Dartmoor and Exmoor are also easily reachable for a day trip.

In addition to the pure natural beauty of the countryside and coastline, the area offers numerous attractions including the Seaton Tramway, Pecorama at Beer, Bicton Park, The Donkey Sanctuary and several National Trust properties.

Northleigh Farm Holiday Cottages Continued

The holiday cottages have been converted from the old milking parlours and are positioned around the farm courtyard. They afford sweeping views of the surrounding countryside and provide comfortable self catering holiday accommodation for groups of four to six guests. If all three cottages are rented together, they can accommodate parties of up to fourteen guests and as they are all adjacent to each other they are particularly suitable for larger groups or several families who want to holiday together with the added privacy of separate accommodation.

All cottages are Four Star rated by VisitBritain and are fully equipped and furnished to a high standard. Each cottage has an electric cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, flatscreen television, DVD player and full oil central heating. Please note that The Shippen is the only cottage with a log burner and it also has a DVD player. Battens and The Linney have video players. Visitors also have the use of a washing machine and tumble dryer in an adjoining scullery, along with a games room equipped with table tennis, snooker and table football. There is ample parking in the courtyard and a large shared garden area for guest's enjoyment.

The Shippen sleeps up to four guests and comprises: Spacious and sunny living room with woodburning stove and open plan kitchen/dining area with French doors opening out onto the courtyard. From the living room a hallway leads to two bedrooms (one double, one twin) and the bathroom which has a shower over the bath. As the cottage is all on ground floor level with no steps it is wheelchair friendly and suitable for people with limited mobility.

Battens sleeps up to six with accommodation on two floors comprising: Open plan kitchen and living room with French doors opening out onto a south facing patio and the garden. There is also a twin bedroom on the ground floor with en-suite WC and washbasin. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms (one double, one twin) and a large bathroom with shower over the bath.

The Linney sleeps up to four guests and is similar to Battens but does not have the ground floor bedroom.
