Comfortable barn conversions at Maddox Down Farm, with stunning views over the countryside, close to Exmoor National Park and the coast.
Maddox Down Farm is well situated for exploring north Devon, fishing, cycling, eating out or celebrating with friends. Discover golden sandy beaches, perfect for rock-pooling, swimming and surfing, dramatic coastlines, rugged moors and verdant valleys. Visit Exmoor and find fantastic places to go in North Devon towns, great local food and drink and a wealth of culture, as well as amazing attractions with Lynmouth’s unique Cliff Railway, Clovelly’s steep cobbled street, the Big Sheep, Watermouth Castle, Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park and the Milky Way all within driving distance and also great days out for the kids.
The farm itself has been in the Lerwill Family since the 1500’s, with the traditional stone barns converted to our cosy cottages in keeping with the surrounding area. We have 6 cottages that sleep from 2 to 7 people. The Cartlinhay, Granary & Roundhouse have log burners installed for those colder but cosy evenings.
On site we have an indoor heated swimming pool, games room complete with a pool table, table tennis, table football and a smaller rugged area with seating for the infants which includes a ball pit, play tent and tunnel and foam hopscotch. Outside we have swings and seating areas where you can relax and take in the views. In the meadow just below the cottages we have a wildlife pond where you can sit and picnic whilst watching the fish and birds.
On arrival you will have a complimentary Devonshire cream tea and condiments waiting in your cottage for you. You may also pre-order your shopping with Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s, who all deliver here. There is also a small local shop a mile down the road selling the essentials, as well as our local pub The Pyne Arms just 1.5 miles down the road serving fantastic food and ales.
“The whole place is so nice to escape to, we will be back again and again.” Mr & Mrs Wilson
