We have stayed at Town Tenement Farm on many occasions and The Farmhouse is our favourite cottage. It is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. It would accommodate 5/6 people easily but we also find it suits us (a couple) and our three, large, exuberant dogs perfectly. It has a pretty, enclosed garden which leads directly into the kitchen, with a warm range and easy clean floor, great for when you (and the dogs) are wet and muddy. The lounge is very large and airy and the wood-burner (logs provided), makes for cosy evenings. The cottage has a very useful utility room, with a washing machine and tumble dryer and also a downstairs toilet. Upstairs, the bedrooms are spacious, with plenty of cupboard space and the cottage has a bathroom and separate shower room. We have stayed here with friends and it is possible to both have a bedroom and bathroom at separate ends of the cottage so retaining a degree of privacy. The cottages are set in well- established grounds, very pretty and with a gentle hill walk where you can exercise the dogs.
Challacombe is a pretty village and we have found a number of lovely walks from the Farmhouse. The local pub, The Black Venus Inn, is a 5 minute walk away, serves truly excellent food, is staffed by very friendly people and is dog friendly. The local shop and post office is next door to the pub, sells a wide range of goods and the owners are very friendly. We pre-order groceries which are delivered to our cottage, ready for our arrival.
Melanie and John are excellent hosts, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and will do anything to help. This is an excellent base for exploring North Devon, we can’t recommend it more highly. The countryside is breath-taking and the coast is a mere 20 minutes away. We want to move here!!!
