Farm cottage self-catering holidays

A really enjoyable holiday is to be experienced in a self-catering farm cottage. The opportunity to stay in outstanding countryside, seeing and understanding how the country side is managed, looking out upon the animals grazing in the field or the wonderful sight of the harvest, gives one a sense of well being.

Today self-catering farm cottages are not like they were in the 80s. Smythen Farm's cottages are of a high standard, offering quality furnishings and equipment for today's holiday maker.
The Easter period is a wonderful time of the year to enjoy a farm-based holiday with the arrival of spring - the pasture lands are beautiful and lush, the spring flowers are in full bloom, and the lambing and calving season is in full swing. The meadows are full of baby lambs and calves skittishly running about. The wild animal and bird life are making homes and producing their young, which is a joy to see.

May and June heralds early summer, providing longer days to enjoy time at Smythen Farm holiday cottages. The lambs and calves are still running about, and with warmer weather and longer daylight, this is the best time of year for walking holidays.
The summer months are a fabulous time to rent a farm cottage. With balmy summer days, the harvest is in full swing and the local sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde, Saunton Sands and Combe Martin provide excellent leisure activities.

Smythen Farm also has lots of farm animals for you and your family to enjoy, including our Kune Kune pigs, sheep, very friendly horses and donkeys, plus the chickens.

September to November offers those who wish to avoid school holidays a quiet, peaceful time. Many of our clients like to bring their dogs to take advantage of the excellent local walks, which include the Exmoor National Park.

So why not give a farm holiday a chance if you haven't experienced one already? At Smythen Farm holiday cottages, we offer a wonderful family environment with lots of really enjoyable things to do around the farm, including swimming in the pool, the games room, the young children's play area and as mentioned above the animals.

The self catering farm cottages at Smythen Farm are designed to offer spacious comfortable, clean accommodation, whilst giving children the ability to roam and explore in a safe environment.

If your children would like to enjoy a day with horses, we can recommend a very enjoyable day at Thinking Horses Prices are really reasonable and is very close to Smythen Farm holiday cottages.

We had a brilliant week here at Smythen Farm, with beautiful views. The children enjoyed the swimming pool which was lovely and warm. The play area was a great hit as was the visit from Bill and family to drop off Easter Eggs. We were made to feel very welcome by Bill and Catherine and nothing was too much trouble. Watermouth Castke was a good day out and you can return for £2.50 each. Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park was a good day out. My favourite da

Had a fantastic stay in Seaview cottage, Catherine and Bill were both lovely and extremely helpful. The games room and the pool were used a lot by both families as the weather wasn’t too good. We all loved the donkeys and the ponies too. The beaches at Woolacombe were beautiful and the girls went on a beach hack from Mullacott riding stables which was fantastic. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the horses were all very well behaved and suitable for
