Holemoor Cottage is a fantastic North Devon retreat, a comfortable and spacious wing of the owner’s traditional 17th century farmhouse situated down a secluded country lane and with its own indoor heated swimming pool (heated all year round) and Jacuzzi. Set in 5 acres with woodland and surrounded by beautiful countryside, the whole area is alive with wildlife, so regular sightings of barn owls, rare British birds and roe deer are not unusual. You probably won’t want to move from this idyllic spot, but you’d be doing yourself a disservice with the spectacular North Cornwall coastline and its amazing beaches just a few miles away. Here you can enjoy fantastic surfing and walk coastal paths along some of the highest cliffs in the UK, whilst inland it would be a shame not to visit the beautiful Dartmoor National Park. A welcoming cream tea and a basket of home produced eggs await you on arrival. All this makes the cottage an ideal all-year-round destination and on the odd rainy day, well there’s always that pool.
For flexible start dates during the low and mid season, please contact the bookings office.

My second unexpected visit (due to a cancellation) bags packed I was on the road within the hour and I had a wonderful week sight seeing and relaxing in the pool daily !! Highly recommend this holiday home, very friendly helpful owners. Looking forward to my next stay.
Holemoor cottage was very well presented and immaculately clean, they catered for our dogs very well and the pool was an excellent addition to the accommodation which the kids loved. I would recommend the property as a lovely place to stay.
Wonderful cosy cottage, if you want to get away from it all then this is the place for you and your family, the owner Anita could not be more helpful. The Cottage is very cosy and has everything you need. For the more adventurous its a great spot if your sporty as well, there is so much to do in the local area. We found everyone we met to be very helpful and friendly. Oh almost forgot the POOL! and Jacuzzi, what a bonus after a hard day of being a tourist! Cannot recommend this place enough, great for families.
We found Holemoor Cottage to be a excellent cottage for a small family with a dog. Anita the owner could not be more helpful. The cottage is well equipped, in an excellent location for visiting Devon/Cornwall. Our young daughter loved the resident dogs Billy & Merlin along with the other animals and not to mention the pool is excellent. We highly recommend this property......you will not be disappointed.
Just returned from a weeks holiday. If you are looking for a quiet, rural area to chill this is the location for you, yet only a short drive to beautiful beaches at Bude, Sandymouth and Widemouth Bay to name just a few. Cosy,warm accommodation and lovelly swimming pool. My family and 2dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the company of the owners 4legged companions.
We really enjoyed our stay at holemoor cottage. Our children aged 7 & 8 loved all the animals and collecting freshly laid eggs. The pool was amazing and got a lot of use, and the cottage itself had everything we needed and was a pleasure to stay at. Great location for exploring the area, and good nearby shops in holsworthy and bude. Very friendly and helpful owners, we would love to come back again.
Welcoming, charming and relaxing. Enough said!
Fantastic break with the family. Swimming pool was used to the max. Fantastic location with fantastic hosts. Strongly recommended and we will be back again.
We enjoyed our stay at Holemoor Farm. The cottage is lovely and cosy, the pool has been a lot of fun. Thank you for the cream tea, fresh flowers and for being so welcoming.
We had an excellent time in this beautiful and cozy cottage. The sunsets were lovely and hearing an owl in the tree opposite the door was very exciting for our young daughter. The pool was just great and we had soo much fun in it each day. The pol rings etc were fun too. Thank you for the fresh flowers and cream tea on arrival. They were lovely. Would love to come again.
A more dog friendly stay you couldn't find! Allowing us to take our third additional four legged friend was greatly appreciated, yet being dog friendly did not mean the cottage lacked anything in style. Attention to detail really made it that 5 star accommodation and all of the family were made to feel really welcome, at home and relaxed. If you want a complete "get away from it all" break where you and your children and dogs can chill out then this is the place for you.
