Speccott Barton provides a choice of six self catering holiday cottages that can accommodate parties of two to fourteen guests individually, within the beautiful rolling hills of the unspoilt North Devon countryside. Just a twenty minute drive to the North Devon coastline with its wonderful beaches, this is an ideal location for anyone looking to explore the area along with its many attractions or simply relax in a peaceful setting.
The cottages are ideal for not only couples looking for a quiet retreat but also small and large families who want a place where children can play and enjoy themselves safely, with excellent facilities which can be used whatever the weather. These include an indoor swimming pool, tennis court and games room.
Speccott Barton is available to rent throughout the whole year. Run by the family, the sheep farm is in an ideal location for those who enjoy walking with direct access to the Tarka Trail and a good number of footpaths which allow you to explore the area by foot. Alternatively, cycle the peaceful country lanes and take in the beautiful scenery.
Nestling in the middle of North Devon, the farm is an ideal base for exploring not only Devon but also some of Cornwall. The National Parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor are also within easy driving distance offering an abundance of attractions and outdoor activities. With the owners living on site to assist you should you need it, you can relax knowing that your holiday should run smoothly.
