Guests wishing to experience rural farm life will be pleased with this ground floor wing of a large farmhouse set in a 200 acre traditional Exmoor livestock farm.  Depending on the season, visitors are invited to observe everyday activities such as lambing, calf-rearing and hay making and are welcome to explore the estate and meet the dogs, cats, ducks and chickens. Walkers too will enjoy the many scenic footpaths in and around the stunning Exmoor countryside and accessible from the doorstep. Holwill Farm Wing is quiet, peaceful and private. The sleepy local village Inn at Parracombe is a popular spot with locals and serves excellent food nearby. The North Devon coastal villages of Combe Martin and Lynton and Lynmouth are a short drive away and well worth a visit.  A comfortable and traditionally furnished lounge/diner, galley kitchen, bedroom and bathroom are all on one level(with a few internal steps). Outside there is a fully-enclosed front garden with garden furniture, a large field and the farmland beyond - all 200 acres - ready for exploration ncluding the historic mound site of Holwill Castle.

Our holiday home was quaint and old. Extension of working farmhouse. Thouroughly enjoyed staying there. Strangely, our old collie, who usually takes 3 days to settle or eat, made himself at home straight away. Good vibes! Tame sheep in enclosure, welcoming us to the day. Fabulous. Have used Marsdens in the past, and recommend. Will use again. Exmoor is beautiful. No more to say. Visit Heddons Mouth beach and drink in the Hunters Inn garden, which is superb for children. See the Peacocks. The Station Inn at Blackmoor Gate, and The Black Venus in Challacombe for food. Parracombe and surrounding area has a very good community spirit. Worth indulging. Actual entrance to farm is directly opposite pub down little track. We couldn't find it, but asked a local. Would like to return, maybe for a winter break.

Mrs S B,

The owners went out of their way to support my father in law who unfortunately had a problem with his leg. They even walked his dog! Amazing hospitality going beyond what would be expected.

Mr Ian T,

This was a great location and also there was a nice pub with good food in the village about 1 minute walk away. It was nice to see (and hear) the new born lambs in the field just outside. The people were really friendly. We would very happily stay there again.

mr N H,
