Guests at the The Farmhouse, a large North Devon holiday cottage in Combe Martin, have free use of a communal indoor heated swimming pool with sauna, a tennis court and 7-acres of grounds to explore, featuring a dog walking field and a children's play area.
The large Farmhouse has five bedrooms positioned over two floors sleeping up to ten guests. These include a twin bedroom on the ground floor that has access to a ground floor bathroom, with only a small step (10cm) into the shower. It would appeal to less mobile guests but it is worth noting that the doors of these rooms are not quite large enough for wheelchair access.
On the first floor, there are a further four bedrooms. These include a master bedroom with double bed and en-suite shower room, a 2nd double bedroom, a twin room with one full size single bed and an additional 2’6” wide single bed, and finally a single bedroom with one full size single bed, an optional pull-out 2'6" wide bed, and a separate child’s bed.
For those holidaying with a baby or an infant, a cot will fit in any of the rooms, and stair-gates are fitted at both the top and bottom of the stairs.
The large Farmhouse can also comfortably accommodate up to 12 people - with the use of the sofa bed, pull-out bed or z-beds, making it a great place for large or multiple families, as well as groups of friends. Please note: there is an extra charge for more than 10 guests staying at The Farmhouse.
As you enter The Farmhouse from the entrance hall, on the left there is a charming beamed lounge with wood-burner, plenty of comfortable sofas (including a sofa bed), large TV and DVD player. To the right of the entrance hall, there is a well-equipped kitchen featuring a Britannia range cooker with two electric ovens and five gas hobs, an American style fridge/freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. It also includes two dining tables to comfortably seat up to 12 guests. A separate utility room has a washer/dryer and access to the private garden.
Outside the farmhouse has its own garden for guests to enjoy, as well as the communal grounds.
Wheel Farm is tucked away in a pretty self-contained complex of 10 holiday cottages just up the road from the seaside village of Combe Martin and not far from the lively seaside towns of Ilfracombe, and the trendy, surfing resort of Woolacombe with 3 miles of long sandy beach and some of the best surfing in the UK, as well as great pubs and restaurants.
There is so much for all the family to enjoy with Dinosaur and Wildlife Park at Combe Martin which is a great day out for all the family, while Exmoor Zoo and the Barnstaple to Lynton steam railway all lie within a short and scenic rural drive.
As this cottage is dog friendly, it's a great place to come and have a holiday with the family pet, being surrounded by so many amazing places to walk the dog, whether along local footpaths, down deep flower-filled country lanes or along wide sandy beaches all around the farm.
