Details

Set in idyllic North Devon countryside, our 8 holiday cottages are baby, toddler, and child friendly. Enjoy daily animal feeding, fantastic indoor/outdoor play facilities, woodland and a stream.

Birchill Farm & Cottages sits amongst 8 acres of green pasture and ancient oak woodlands. The grounds also feature a wildlife pond and an open meadow leading to the stream.

Join Farmer Lisa feeding our friendly ponies, donkeys, pigs, ducks, chickens, geese, pigmy goats, lambs, rabbits and guinea pigs. Collect the eggs from our free range chickens and enjoy one for your breakfast. Explore our fully enclosed, farm-themed outdoor play area or take a walk around our magical woodland, wandering along the zig-zag paths, trying to spot the hidden bird boxes. You might even spot some fairies and gnomes hiding amongst the trees.

We also have a tractor shed, with lots of ride-on toys, a games room and an indoor play barn ideal for those odd rainy days.

We know how stressful going on holiday with babies and toddlers can be, so we designed and equipped our cottages to make your family holiday as relaxing as possible. All cottages have their own private gardens and have been finished and furnished to a high standard with all the comforts of home.

Each cottage has a selection of books, toys and games and we also have a selection of baby and toddler equipment for you to borrow free of charge - just let us know what you need.

You will be welcomed to your cottage with a complimentary Devon cream tea. The kitchens in our cottages are very well equipped, but if you would like a night off, we offer a selection of high quality, healthy, frozen, “Cook” pop in the oven’ ready meals including a selection of frozen kids’ meals.

Major supermarkets will deliver to Birchill Farm so you may pre-order groceries or pre-order a Birchill Farm welcome hamper containing a selection of delicious locally sourced foods for you to enjoy as a light meal after your journey, together with the necessary ingredients for a hearty breakfast the following day. 

We are ideally positioned for access to all of North Devon’s attractions. There is so much to do in the local area, you’ll be spoilt for choice. From walking along North Devon’s dramatic coastline to feasting on fresh, local produce or wondering at the rugged beauty of Exmoor to name but a few. There is an abundance of picturesque seaside villages to explore and miles of golden beaches to build sandcastles on. Not only that, there are intriguing art galleries, craft centres and museums to visit and fabulous local restaurants to dine in.
