About Mark Ryland

We are Mark and Yvonna a husband and wife team. We moved from the South East just before Xmas 2014 as an 'escape to the country'.

Our cottages are set in a courtyard along with our home, the old farmhouse, so we are nearby to help if any problems arise. We live here with our 2 young boys Ben and Harvey ages 9 and 6.

Mark Ryland purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Mark Ryland chose Great Torrington

We believe we have the largest indoor pool in the whole of North Devon for the number of cottages. You can basically guarantee a private swim every day that you are here.

Our country cottages are set in 6 acres and surrounded by common land, perfect for walking. Whilst being rural our family friendly cottages are not isolated and are less than a mile away from the small market town of Great Torrington with pubs, restaurants, take-aways, supermarket etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The swimming pool and games room is a great touch as it kept children and us adults happy. The option to help feed the farm animals was a great touch as well and kept our boy entertained. Overall we couldn't have asked for more and would love to go back soon.'



I have just spent a lovely time staying at Hill Farm Cottages, great for children with animals to feed, an indoor pool, just in case of the "Great British Summer" and so much land for playing and running around. The cottage had everything we needed and was spotless. The new owners are lovely, they could not do enough for us, thoroughly recommend

Very good.

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous place to stay. Accommodation is spacious and very comfortable. Little touches such as blankets, dvds and board games make it even better for kids. The pool is very clean and warm and the games room has plenty in it to keep all ages entertained. Would recommend the local cyder pressed pub for drinks and food and the cycle trail on the Tarka route was brilliant! Innstow has a lovely beach and cafes.

Fantastic week away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the pebble ridge cottage. A family of 4 adults, 1 child aged 2 and a 4 week old baby. The cottage was fantastic. Everything you need is there and very cosy. The grounds are immaculate. My 2 year old really enjoyed feeding the animals every morning then going for a swim. The games room has so much in to keep children enterained if the weather is not great. The owners are very helpful and so friendly. We will be returning next year with the whole family.

A LITTLE GEM FOR A FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

ON ARRIVAL WE WERE GREATED BY THE VERY FRIENDLY OWNER MARK, THE COURTYARD OF THE COTTAGES IS VERY WELL PRESENTED AND SPOTLESSLY CLEAN. OUR COTTAGE WAS THE SAME VERY WELL DECORATED AND SPOTLESS. LOTS TO DO ON SITE FOR CHILDREN WITH THE INDOOR HEATED SWIMMING POOL AND GAMES ROOM ALONG WITH THE VARIETY OF ANIMALS. TORRINGTON IS ONLY A MILE A WAY ACCESSIBLE BY COUNTRY LANE OR PUBLIC FOOTPATHS WHICH ARE ACROSS A COUPLE OF FIELDS. HILL FARM COTTAGES SERVES AS A GOOD BASE FOR VISTING BARNSTAPLE, BIDEFORD WESTWARD HO AND ILFRACOMBE.

WE HOPE TO RETURN VERY SOON

Owner's Response: Hi Leighton Many thanks for your review. We have stopped taking short breaks (you won't be able to book online via OD or our own site) as we are getting a lot of demand for weekly bookings but you guys were no problem at all so if you did want to return for 3 nights again please contact us.
