Higher Darracott Farm Cottages

Great Torrington 1.5 miles. These cosy cottages are situated within the grounds of Higher Darracott Farm, in a tranquil rural setting, with fabulous views across rolling Devon countryside towards Lundy Isle and the coast. The owners live in the neighbouring farmhouse and keep rare breed hens, ponies, and sheep, which graze on the adjacent field. Tastefully renovated, these Great Torrington barn conversions are attached to each other and boast character features, such as oak doors, latch handles and exposed beams throughout, while the upside down accommodation enable guests to make the most of the superb countryside views from the open plan living area. Outside, a patio garden offers the perfect spot to enjoy an evening meal as the sun sets over the countryside. The town of Great Torrington has a Victorian pannier market, is well-stocked with award-winning shops, pubs and cafes, and has tourist attractions giving an insight into its link with the Civil War history. Great Torrington is also on the National Cycle Route numbers 3 and 27 with on and off access point at Puffin Billy on the Tarka Trail. Visit Dartington Crystal and see glassblowing, or spend a day wandering around the beautiful RHS Rosemoor Gardens with arboretum and herbaceous borders. Nearby are the coastal villages of Lynton and Lynmouth with the cliff-top railway and boutique shops, pretty Clovelly with its quaint, narrow, cobbled streets, built on a steep hill above the sea, and sandy beaches at Westward Ho!. These two Great Torrington cottages are an ideal base for a fantastic holiday in North Devon.
