Come and stay on our historic organic farm set in stunning Devon countryside. We have 2 well equipped cottages, each individually designed, each with its own garden and sharing an indoor heated pool, which is open all year. Enjoy peace and quiet amongst our gardens, fields and woods. Get close to nature with our organic pastures, pure air and a wealth of wildlife. Explore an adventure on our woodland walk, catch a giant carp on our beautiful lake or meet our friendly farm animals and pets.
Roy and Sophia May live on the farm at Wansley Barton with their 2 children, family pets and flock of organic sheep. We like to share our home with visitors and invite you to come and sample our beautiful Devon countryside and fantastic beaches.
Sophia and Roy May purchased this cottage in 1996
The farm is in a peaceful location in lovely Devon countryside but near to everything that you could want. North Devon is one of the few unspoilt areas of England, where people are friendly, the air is clean and you can still see every star at night. Our house and cottages are very old and the site dates back to the Doomsday Book. We just love it here and we hope that you will too!
the best thing about living here is there is no passing traffic, just peace and quiet. It is a place where you can do what you like, with no neighbours, no street lights, no pollution, just nature at its best.
The house is 100% more than we expected! It really made our trip. What a wonderful place. We had lots of fun and the house is super. Had a very enjoyable stay in this lovely house. Great welcome and swimming pool is fabulous.
A deposit of one third is required to secure a booking. The balance is due 2 weeks prior to arrival.
Meadow Cottage weekly changeover Friday.
Bramble Cottage weekly changeover Saturday.
Short breaks usually Friday and Mondays but we can be flexible.
A lovely rural idyll. A place to rest in the quiet of the countryside. The pool was an added attraction.
Without a doubt one of the best family holidays we have had.
Truly 5 star boasting a heated indoor swimming pool that actually is heated to a comfortable degree and only 4 ft deep accommodates all the family.
The cottage has been expertly converted and no expense spared on the fixtures & fittings, it has everything you need (a home from home) .Like the pool the heating in the cottage is amazing, nice to have hot baths, proper showers and heated towel radiators.
To top it all I caught a cracking common carp in the lake
Thanks Sophia you made us very welcome.
A group of us went down to stay last week and we had the most incredible time, lovley warm welcome from Roy and Sophia. The house is stunning and clean,and the pool and lake where a great touch.
would definitly go back and recommend
As a party of 14 we rented the meadow cottage and bramble cottage. Bramble cottage is a very homely and comfortable 2 bedroom the views from the master bedroom and garden are outstanding.The hospitality from the owners Roy and Sofia are excellent providing milk wine and cake on arrival. The cottage is sufficiently equipped and very spacious the extra bonus is the indoor swimming pool which the children enjoyed along with the hours of fishing at the Lake behind. It's so relaxing and a great way to recharge batteries whilst having quality family time away The walks are fabulous in all directions from Wansley Barton and the local pub the New Inn in Roborough is so welcoming too with delicious food. We will certainly be visiting again

The beaches in North Devon are amongst the best in England and the area has been recognized as having environmental importance and has been delegated a UNESCO Biosphere reserve.
