To ensure your safety we have made the decision to leave a full week between each booking to enable thorough cleaning and to reduce the chance of cross contamination between guests. Although this seriously affects our capacity we believe it is the right option to give our guests piece of mind.

We look forward to welcoming you to our safe spot in the North Devon countryside albeit in a slightly different format to normal.

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. Our cottages are listed on Tripadvisor under their individual names. 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, trampoline and a games room. We are delighted to be able to offer our guests access to the fabulous swimming and gym facilities at High Bullen Hotel which is a fifteen minute drive away. Why not take a stroll around the farm’s field, woodlands and lane to enjoy the countryside views, our animals and the wildlife.
