Churchtown Farm Cottage dates back to the 17th Century and is part of a Devon Longhouse so there are old beams plus an original bakers oven in the fireplace. We're a working farm with sheep and cows plus some rescue chickens, farm cats and friendly dogs. We're in the foothills of Exmoor on The Two Moors Way with its beautiful scenery and walks and also next door to West Anstey Church. A great base for exploring the North Devon Coast. Dogs are very welcome. Enclosed Garden. Plenty of parking.
If you enjoy walking we are on The Two Moors Way next door to West Anstey Church which is really pretty and is still used for services.
Plenty of space in all the bedrooms upstairs and downstairs, large cosy lounge with a big radiator and a woodburner for those chilly nights. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of utensils including a washing machine, dish washer, fridge freezer, microwave, electric cooker, plenty of cutlery, crockery and cooking pots and pans. The kitchen is not huge but is all fully fitted. The dining room/entrance hall has a large wooden table with 6 chairs around the table, spare chairs can be found in the cupboard upstairs to seat 8 people. The lounge has 3 large sofas, tv, DVD player and a part sky package. There is also a hifi comprising of a record deck, tape player, CD player and radio! A docking station for iPads is in the dining room. There are plenty of books to read, jigsaw puzzles and some games. All the rooms apart from the kitchen and dining rooms have views of the front garden, church and fields. As we are a working farm there are animals around in the fields and depending on the time of year visitors are welcome to wander around our main barn to see the cows and sheep. At lambing time there are often orphan lambs that need bottle feeding, some guests have watched the births of new lambs and calves! Our rescue chickens will eat corn from your hands and welcome any leftover food which helps make our eggs so yellow and tasty.
The cottage sleeps 8 people. Please contact us for a reduced price if there are less than 8 guests .

We're about a 10 minute drive from Dulverton which has a great Thai Restaurant, Woods Award winning Wine Bar and The Bridge Inn by the river, all serve fantastic food. Carole Kings shop in the centre of Dulverton is a must to visit for an array of gifts and beautiful shoes! There's also a supermarket, delicatessen, farm shop, beauty room, tea rooms and butchers, well worth a wander around! The beautiful Tarr Steps with Tarr Farm Inn is about 15 minutes away, walk along the river, cross the clapper bridge, see the money tree and then enjoy a cream tea, lunch or dinner at Tarr Farm with stunning scenery. If you fancy horse riding, visit West Anstey Riding Stables is just up the road from our farm, Earl and his team can take you for a ride across the moors, you might even be lucky enough to see the wild deer or exmoor ponies! In the other direction and 10 minute drive visit the London Inn at Molland for some delicious food in a lovely pub with a big open fire, great atmosphere with hosts Claire and Stuart, try some of our own lamb which is often on the menu!
Devon is beautiful to explore but please note we do have lanes and not busy motorways! Traffic jams are usually caused by animals on the roads so please be patient. Phone signals are very hit and miss but enjoy being out of contact for a change, wifi signals have a mind of their own and a delivery of take away food is very rare, although we can get supermarket deliveries! Dogs visiting us love the freedom and fresh air as much as the children who can play outside in the garden quite safely.
No smoking in the cottage. We really want you to have a relaxing stay with us but please leave the cottage as you find it and don't be afraid to let us know if something gets damaged or broken so we can get it fixed for the next guests.
