We stayed with friends who had booked another cottage. Everyone had a great time in this beautiful part of the country. The Cottage was really well equipped and comfortable and sitting in the snug with the log burner going after a long walk was a real treat. Highly recommended.

Barn Cottage at Mornacott is a stunning converted barn with characterful oak beams throughout and a vaulted first-floor ceiling.
Top-quality contemporary soft furnishings and quality solid oak furniture.
Barn Cottage was originally built as a store and press for cider apples before its painstaking conversion in 2011. It sits on its own above the farmstead and benefits from glorious country views. The barn was completely rebuilt using traditional cob and stone and nestles under a traditional slate roof.
The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a large open plan kitchen and dining area, a twin/double bedroom (zip-and-link type beds) with ensuite shower room and a separate “snug”.
A widescreen television, with separate DVD player, complements the snug which also benefits from a woodburning stove.
The first floor, accessed by an open tread oak staircase, comprises two bedrooms and a large family bathroom (with powerful shower over bath).
One of the upstairs bedrooms has a double bed with the other having the flexibility of zip-and-link beds.
The kitchen is equipped with a large electric range cooker, separate fridge and freezer, dishwasher and microwave. There is an on-site laundry and drying room.
Outside there is a garden with a large terrace and seating area and a barbeque.
Please note: * The beds in the downstairs bedroom are standard 2'6" beds, giving a 5' double, but are best suited for children when made up as singles). * With having farm animals around the place (and much as we love them) we regret we are unable to accept pets. * Smoking is not permitted in Barn Cottage. * Arrival time: 4.00pm onwards * Departure: By 10.00am
Local area: Our rural location guarantees peaceful seclusion at Mornacott. At the same time, there is easy access to North Devon’s glorious beaches as we're located just two miles from the A361 North Devon Link Road. The beaches are ideal for surfers, bathers, sandcastle building and beach cricket enthusiasts alike. Mornacott borders the Exmoor National Park and is just a few minutes from South Molton with its weekly Farmers' and Pannier markets plus all the main services, shops, pubs and supermarkets you will need during your holiday. The larger town of Barnstaple is within 16 miles with many more shops, a theatre and cinema.
Bright and airy but full of character

A really lovely cottage. we were welcomed with a fresh home baked cake and enough basics for a cup of tea whilst we waited for the online shopping to arrive. The estate feels really out in the country but is no more than five minutes from the main road with access to the beaches and other attractions. Everything is beautifully presented and all the staff clearly take pride in what they do. We had a problem with the cooker on the third night of our stay and we were offered the use of another in an entertaining barn which we didn't actually take up and the electrician arrived first thing and sorted the problem. Full marks! We will definitely be back. Thanks Mornacott!

This was our first time staying at Mornacott and we would definitely come for another stay. As we arrived in the picturesque location we experienced a warm and heart warming greeting which include a cake, milk and eggs! We were immediately impressed and it all got better from there. The cottage was a fantastic building with more than enough room for the family. We visited the lovely pool facilities for a cooldown after a long journey from Surrey, the heated swimming pool supplemented by the games room went down fantastically well with the children. During our week stay which seemed to fly by, we utilised the walks through the countryside which were helpfully set up, so even we couldn’t get lost. The surrounding area was also lovely to visit during the week. As our brilliant stay came unfortunately to an end we were presented with a book detailing the history of Mornacott, it was great to see how this lovely place has developed. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mornacott to anyone looking for a holiday.

Perfect accommodation to share time with friends and family. Open living space with great log burner brings all together with spectacular views over the valley. Very relaxing and the separate pool complex is first class as well. We were made very welcome throughout and lovely to be on a working farm. Excellent all round.
