Our art holidays are currently suspended owing to Covid-19 but we are pleased to offer self-catering holiday accommodation in the main farmhouse and Shorland Cottage.  The two properties together will sleep 19 and may be rented as one unit or separately.

Shorland Old Farm is a 17C Grade II listed farmhouse set in the rolling North Devon countryside with glorious views over Exmoor.  Although it is no longer a working farm, it is set in its own fourteen acres of gardens, woodland and pasture, with streams, ponds, and an old limekiln and quarry to explore.

Full listing and updated availability calendar can be viewed on groupaccommodation.com.

 

Main farmhouse
Farmhouse kitchen with AGA

The main farmhouse offers 8 en-suite bedrooms – 5 kingsize and 3 twins, sleeping 16, plus there is an extra single bed on a mezzanine level in one of the kingsize rooms. Three bedrooms are on the ground floor and five on the first.

There is a large guest lounge with Freesat TV and DVD player, a dining room with a table that can seat 14, a second, smaller lounge with Freesat TV and DVD player, and a kitchen with a 4-oven AGA, dishwasher, and a table seating 6-8.  A utility room with two washing machines and a tumble drier is also available for guest use.

 

For your peace of mind

With Covid-19 at the forefront of all our minds, we will only be letting the main farmhouse on a week on / week off basis.  Between bookings it will be thoroughly cleaned and left for a minimum of 72 hours so that guests can have confidence it is Covid-secure.

Mark and Sandy live on site but in a separate, self-contained part of the building where they will always be available should you require any help with anything, but will also respect your privacy and keep well out of your way while you enjoy your stay.

Shorland Cottage

The separate, self-contained Shorland Cottage has a bright and airy open-plan living area on the first floor.  There’s a kitchen with fridge-freezer, cooker and microwave; an extendable dining table and chairs; two comfy sofas, Freesat TV and DVD player.  It looks out over the pretty gardens to the rolling farmland and hills of Exmoor beyond.

Downstairs are two bedrooms.  The larger bedroom can be made up either as a superking-size bed or a twin.  The smaller room has a single bed.  There is a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower.

Lynmouth, where Exmoor meets the sea, is 10 miles away.  Barnstaple, with all the facilities of a main town, is 12 miles away.  There are beaches galore to choose from within easy driving distance, including the award winning 2-mile stretch of sand and dunes at Woolacombe.  Combe Martin is 7 miles away.

Accessibility

Shorland Old Farm is a 350-year-old property built on the side of a hill.  Consequently, there are steps and slopes all around the property so it is not suitable for wheelchair users.  There are handrails by all steps and in all downstairs showers.  If you would like to discuss suitability, please do get in touch.
