About Parlour at Speccott Barton

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 excellent 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.

Location (Devon)

Speccott Barton offers six holiday cottages. Forge sleeps two guests; Stable sleeps two (plus two); Hayloft sleeps six; Coach House sleeps eight; Granary sleeps fourteen and Parlour which is featured within this advert also sleeps eight guests.

Once the home of the old milking parlour where cows would have been milked by hand by the maids, parlour offers great value for perhaps two families with accommodation that comprises:

Ground floor

  • Front door taking you into the characterful sitting room with lots of beams. This takes you through into...
  • Large kitchen/diner with range style cooker (with extractor over), tall fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, table with chairs and back door taking you out to the pool area and games room.

First floor

  • Four bedrooms which are configured as: a twin bedroom, two doubles (one with ensuite shower room) and a bedroom with bunk beds plus cot.
  • Family bathroom.

Additional information: Please note that the washing machine and tumble dryer is located in a communal laundry room which is available for guests use (£1.00 per load on the machines). Each cottage has a £1 electricity coin metre fitted.

All cottages have access to the indoor heated swimming pool (open all year). It measures 26'x15' and is a continual depth of 4' - children under the age of sixteen must be accompanied in the pool area at all times. The pool is open from 9am - 9pm apart from on a Saturday when it is closed for cleaning until 2pm.

There is a hard court tennis court in the old walled garden. Whether playing or observing you will you can not help but admire the beautiful scenery and views of Dartmoor.

The children's play area with swings and slide is also located at the end of the walled garden and guests have the shared use of the lovely communal gardens with plenty of space including picnic areas with barbecues.

A good sized two storey games room is sure to keep the children entertained if it rains and offers table tennis, pool (coin operated), outdoor play equipment, darts, air hockey table (child size), football table and carpeted play area.

Guests are more than welcome to walk the farm and have permission to watch lambs being born in the spring.
