Our luxurious, designer-built accommodation on a working farm offers the best of both worlds: all the creature comforts of home, yet only minutes from the glorious south coast of Devon, where many miles of safe, award-winning beaches await.
The Barn at Cotmore Farm is a newly built, reverse-level conversion situated in a small farm courtyard at the end of a private tree-lined drive in a sheltered south-facing valley. Luxuriously appointed throughout, with heated slate floors downstairs and solid oak boards upstairs, original contemporary art on the walls, comfortable leather sofas and a flatscreen HD TV, the Barn provides all the comforts of home in an idyllic country setting.
The front door opens to an elegant hallway. On the left, a large bookcase filled with paperback and hardback fiction, reference books and local history, and an excellent selection of children's picture books, will tempt you to browse and borrow. To the right, the master bedroom with en-suite is furnished with a kingsize bed. Next door a private laundry room has washing, drying and ironing facilities. The spacious second bedroom can be configured as one superking or up to three single beds. A cot is available if required at no extra charge.
A glass balustraded staircase leads to the first floor, a lovely, light-filled space, with high ceilings, exposed beams and roof lights, offering expansive, open-plan living. At one end of this 40-foot room is a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, with views to the garden and farm courtyard. At the other, two comfortable leather sofas, a widescreen satellite TV, and a high-end Scandinavian woodburner offer a congenial space to relax of an evening. Double French doors give onto a sunny private terraced garden, with outdoor dining facilities and barbecue. From the terrace, a path leads to a sheltered apple orchard and a grassy area perfect for a game of football, badminton or croquet.
Horses, cats, chickens, and rare breed piglets provide feeding opportunities for animal-loving children (and adults!), while birdwatchers will delight in the abundance of visitors to our many tables and feeders. And since we're barely a mile from the South West Coast Path, walkers (and their dogs) will not want for new routes to explore.
Guests have a private garden and free access to the orchard with its giant trampoline. They are welcome to explore the farm and visit the animals in their homes: we keep horses, Shetland sheep, chickens, ducks and rare breed pigs, with very cute piglets!
No smoking; well behaved pets may be acceptable by arrangement, in return for a charge of £25 per pet, per stay.

Our family enjoyed a wonderful short break at Cotmore Farm between Christmas and New Year. The Barn was everything we had hoped. Comfortable, spacious and well decorated with a good entertainment system and wi-fi. The wood fire was lovely in the evenings. Thank you Piers and Sue for a wonderful time!
We had a fantastic stay at Cotmore Farm, we only wish we could have stayed longer. Our toddler loved exploring the farm and watching the pigs being fed. Piers was really helpful and the welcome pack was a lovely addition, the eggs were amazing. The barn itself is really beautiful and had everything we needed. Our toddler loved the rocking horse as well.
We were blessed with a sunny weekend so could make the most of all the beautiful places nearby including Salcombe, Burgh Island and Dartmouth. However, there were so many more places that we wanted to visit as the barn is in a really convenient location.
We would love to go back.
This was our first journey to Devon and, despite the terrible weather, my wife and I had a fantastic experience staying in the Barn at Cotmore Farm. Within minutes we felt perfectly at home - large, cosy, rustic but with enough modern amenities (including a great bathtub!) that kept us comfortable. The fireplace was a bonus and much used. Staying within the farm itself was great - surrounded by horses, pigs and of course the chickens which supplied us with amazing fresh eggs every morning. The location is perfect for exploring the many riches of South Devon - picturesque coastal villages are abundant and close by - with many many great beaches, restaurants and pubs to chose from. Lastly, Piers and Sue were wonderful hosts - extremely knowledgeable about the area, warm, inviting and helpful. We are already missing our wonderful week, but we'll definitely be back, so this softens the blow...
Just returned from a wonderful two weeks at the Barn. We all had a great time. The Barn provides excellent well equipped accommodation and the setting is beautiful. We spent our time either going to the beach,with over 15 within a twenty minute drive, visiting the spectacular Dartmoor national park, or relaxing at Cotmore Farm. We would high recommend a stay, as the hosts provide an superb base for a break. The animals, especially the pigs, are great too! We'll be sure to return.
We have just spent four fantastic days at Cotmore Farm and would recommend it to anyone traveling to the area. The accommodation was first class - all the comforts of home and Piers and Sue were the perfect hosts. The Barn was great for a family - plenty of room. A beautiful part of the world.

Cotmore is a 17th century house surrounded by 13 acres of land that was already a farm more than a thousand years ago. It is a welcoming place that is home to Piers, Sue, three teenagers aged 14-18, some cats, and a small, very friendly, very bouncy dog. We moved here from south-east England in 2011, with the aim of establishing an environment where others could enjoy the kind of holiday we remember from our own childhoods in Ireland and Cornwall. We have converted barns and outbuildings that provide stylish, comfortable self-catering accommodation at the heart of the farm. We keep horses, Large Black pigs, Shetland sheep, and free-range chickens, from which we have a plentiful supply of eggs, sausages, bacon, and hams. And living just a mile from the spectacular south Devon coast, we take full advantage of our fabulous seaside location to walk, swim, surf and kayak.
