Whether you want to relax with a book in the gardens surrounding the cottages, watch a DVD, help us feed the animals or just unwind in our rural haven here in North Devon there is something for you at Lower Hearson Farm Self Catering Holiday Cottages. Free Wi-Fi available. Please visit our website and follow the links to read our reviews.

Lower Hearson Farm is a small family run farm set in fifteen acres of gardens, field and woodland. We run the farm on a small scale aiming to be as self sufficient as possible in fruit, vegetables and meat. Depending on the time of year that you come here you will see life on a small farm with sheep, lambs and traditional breed chickens (Welsummer, Black Rock and Light Sussex).

Guests are very welcome to help us at feeding times for the animals. We are happy to share our experience with any visitors that are interested in living in as self sufficient a way as possible with tips ranging from looking after the animals to growing leeks in your back garden (which is how we started).

Tucked away in the heart of the North Devon countryside in a secluded valley full of wildlife, Lower Hearson Farm is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Our six self catering holiday cottages are surrounded by two acres of gardens making this a safe place for children and a peaceful haven for adults.

Facilities within the grounds we have an outdoor covered, heated swimming pool, a children’s play area, sandpit and a games room. Why not take a stroll around the farm’s field, woodlands and lane to enjoy the countryside views, our animals and the wildlife.

This is our largest cottage, sleeping 7 across 3 bedrooms. The good sized double bedroom upstairs has a velux window affording views of the original, still unconverted, 18th Century Shippon. You can watch the swallows swoop and dive into the barn as they return to their nests. Along the corridor is the triple room which provides another good vantage point for watching the birds. There is also a family bathroom. The third bedroom is a practical ground floor twin room with ensuite.

The downstairs has ample living space for a group of 7 to enjoy a holiday without feeling crowded. The comfortable living room allows the family to relax together and the connected kitchen is light and practical. The Cottage is well equipped with a washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, electric oven and microwave.

A very popular feature of this cottage is the sunroom with sliding French doors. This is a lovely way to maximise the connection between the practical indoor spaces and the private raised patio area that is for the exclusive use of our Shippon guests.

There is also a dining and family room at the back of the property which provides ample space for the whole family to sit together for an evening meal or gather for a special occasion. The corner sofa in the family area is a comfortable place to relax and watch a DVD.
