Holyford Farm Cottages

Situated approximately one mile from Colyton, and a similar distance from the sea, these three self-catering holiday cottages are set in a very peaceful location on the edge of Holyford Woods. All are within the grounds of the owners’ home, a Grade II listed farmhouse, The Stables Cottage (sleeps up to 4) and Garden Cottage (sleeps 2) are both located opposite the farmhouse in what was originally a Victorian coach house. The oldest part of the property, dating back to the late 16th century, is Crispin Cottage (sleeps up to 5). Attached to the owners’ home, this east wing was originally a medieval hall, and has a wealth of oak panelling, beams and other period features.

The Holyford Farm website has all the details on both properties, information on a stabling option for visitors with horses, provision for walkers (the properties are close to both the South West Coast Path and the East Devon Way), and independent guest reviews. It also details the opportunity for large groups (up to 12) to book all properties. It is a wonderful place for children to stay, to experience life on a small holding with a variety of animals including chickens, and a flock of friendly Grey Face Dartmoor sheep.
