cottage6Set down its own private country lane, in a secluded position this charming country cottage is located amidst breath-taking countryside with distant views of the stunning dramatic coastline of North Devon.

The central, rural location offers relaxing surroundings and walks including 50 acres of woodland on the Farm itself.

Indicknowle is an award winning working farm with plenty of interest all year.  It is the ideal base for a family to experience a Country Holiday.  During your stay you can also sample our Ciders, seasonal vegetables from the vegetable garden, preserves and chutneys, free range chicken, goose and duck eggs as well as our own Ruby Red Beef, Lamb & Pork.  We also have our own amazing  spring water.

Mary’s cottage is located in a perfect setting close to a wealth of attractions.  There are many places to visit nearby including National Trust’s Arlington Court , the resorts of Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, Lynton and Lynmouth, from where you can take a boat trip along the coastline, hire a fishing boat or from Ilfracombe harbour sail to Lundy Island for the day.  Close by is also Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park!

A little further a field is the ancient town of Barnstaple, with its Doomsday associations.  Here you can find a good selection of shops, restaurants, museum, a theatre and various sporting facilities, not to mentions a 14th Century Parish Church, a fascinating Heritage Centre and daily Pannier Market.
