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.

Fantastic break for all

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday from start to finish. Lovely clean and spacious cottage, fantastic facilities and friendly owners. The kids loved the swimming pool and feeding the animals each morning and the enclosed courtyard made it a safe environment for the children to play freely without us having to stress.

Ideal for young Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family just came back from a week at Hill Farm Cottages (Landcross) and I can't recommend it enough.

Having a 3 and a 1 year old it was so amazing having so much to keep them occupied onsite (pool, playroom, play field and feeding the animals) in between naps, that then allowed us all the opportunities to venture out to the beaches and amusements in surrounding Devon.

The morning animal feeds were a perfect time to pick Mark and Iwona's brains on how best to approach our plans for the day, providing much needed guidance when exploring the area.

We had such an amazing holiday and it was made possible by a perfect place to stay.

Excellent holiday home for young family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay at hill farm cottages. The welcome we received was very warm and the owners are very friendly and great with children. Our 2 yr old loved feeding the animals each day and Mark was a mine of great tips on what to do locally. The cottage was perfect for the 3 of us and was perfectly equipped. Would highly recommend this cottage.

Uniqeley wondeful in every way.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely New Year break away sharing it with other friends and their families staying in other properties at the location.

Lovely standard of living conditions and thoughtfulness of the proprietors with it being fully set up toddler friendly for us, the cot and stair gates every where they were needed - along with a complimentary bottle of bubbles on arrival. :-)

Pool was warm and in a clean condition as was the whole site. Great mixed age games room including little tykes items and small toys for young children as well as a pool table and table tennis.

Outside play area with swings and climbing frame etc and a nice space for ball games.

Would definitely go back, enquired about next year but was full booked already.

A fantastic weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family and I hired 4 of the cottages at Hill Farm last weekend. We had a fabulous stay and couldn't have asked for more.

The cottages were well decorated and spotless with excellent amenities. They were perfect for our group of 8 adults and ten children (aged 3-12).

The pool was a huge hit and we spent the majority of our time enjoying it! It had its own changing rooms, shower and drying room which we found incredibly useful with the children.

The farm also has a small collection of animals which the children enjoyed feeding with Mark in the morning. Feeding the pigs and stroking the rabbit were particular highlights for them! We also spent time in the farms play park and games room, enjoying the pool table and table tennis facilities.

The location is fantastic with the town close enough for shopping and takeaways and westward ho! beach close by for a walk.

We were really sad to leave and will definitely look to book again in the near future. Thanks to Mark and Yvonne for making it so wonderful.
