We stayed in Woodpecker Lodge. A large and spacious 4 bedroom lodge with everything that you need. Large fully fitted kitchen with d/washer, two bathrooms. The lodge away from the other cottages and gives that little extra privacy. There is a utility room with washing machines and dryers and plenty of games dvd's. Free wifi. The farm has its own...

Aside from our expectations in respect of location/quality of accommodation- spotlessly clean, comfortable, well equipped- this holiday was planned predominantly to enable five year old Billy to do what he loves best- to play, explore and adventure in a place where there were farm animals to befriend and feed and a beach where he could run, swim and paddle to...

From arrival to departure, we were very well looked after by Steve, Di, and Emma at Widemouth. The Scones were a lovely surprise on arrival. The accommodation is of a very high standard, beautifully designed, it's modern but still cosy. The children absolutely loved the daily animal feeding, as we did watching them. The scenery is running, and you can... More

We stayed a week in the Swallow cottage. It's fairly small but compact. The beds are comfy. I think the only thing that I missed was a clock/radio in the bedroom. I did need some help after being there one day, when our house was suddenly sold in North America and we had to print off documents from my IPad,... More

This is a lovely place, in a lovely setting, very much as described their website. I stayed in 'Swallow' cottage. It was clean, very well equipped and is tastefully furnished and decorated. The double bed was really comfy, with crisp white linen. A nice hospitality touch is the scone and cream on arrival, with enough supplies to make a tea... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Widmouth Farm Cottages is between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin, the gateway to Exmoor, on the North Devon coast. We have spectacular views overlooking wonderful Watermouth Cove and 35 acres of headland, woodland and a private beach on the Devon National Heritage Coastline. Widmouth Farm Cottages is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, and offers the perfect self catering holiday for families and people of all ages. Our private beach is just 500 yards from the cottages and a two minute walk through the sheep fields! It is large and sandy for about 2 hours either side of low tide. Our regular visitors return to our self-catering holiday cottages to walk, fish, play golf, kayak, horse ride, use our lovely beach or simply relax in this peaceful, tranquil setting. We are also only six miles from Woolacombe Beach, voted the UKs best beach for the second year running! Children are welcome and so are dogs. We have regular animal feeding & handling sessions for visitors who wish to join in. This usually includes the sheep, goats, alpacas, pigs, chickens, ducks. For the keen fisherman, it is the perfect place to find some hidden spots, with our private beach or beautiful coastline there are plenty of places to find peace and quiet and fish until your hearts content!!! ... more   less
