Eggesford Barton - Bee Hive


"...nestling peacefully in the heart of inspirational Devonshire countryside..."

Surrounded by countryside that formed the setting for Williamson’sTarka the Otter, these four character properties originally comprised the stabling and grooms’ quarters for the Earl of Portsmouth’s estate. Arranged around an enclosed courtyard with cobbled pathways, they are set within several acres of beautiful private grounds. Believed to date from the early 18th century, the property was developed throughout the 18th and 19th centuries and grew greatly in importance – as the Barton Farm, it was responsible for corn threshing and storage for the smaller farms upon the estate. The restoration of the Grade II listed farmhouse and courtyard has resulted in a unique property in a rare state of preservation. A pleasant stroll through the woodland and pastureland leads down to the River Taw, where 800 metres of river frontage awaits guests, and where superb salmon and trout fishing is available. Three properties can be booked together to provide the perfect setting for that special family or friends’ celebration, accommodating up to 26 adults.
Consisting of carefully converted and renovated stone and slate buildings, The Cider Press, The Gallery and Honey Cottage all offer substantial and spacious holiday accommodation, and display a wealth of features such as wooden or flagstone floors, beams and inglenook fireplaces with either wood-burning stove or open fire in the dining room. The Cider Press additionally exhibits fascinating stone walls, with an apex ceiling and open oak roof timbers adorning its living room.
Approached through park-like grounds, with double oak doors set in the arched entrance, the drive leads into a carriage ring at the centre of the courtyard. Open towards the south, pleasant evenings can be spent admiring the splendid views over the surrounding countryside towards Eggesford Forest. Each property has its own garden area overlooking pastureland, complete with barbecue, where food can be enjoyed out in the open. To enable a welcome break from culinary chores, outside catering can even be arranged to make a holiday that bit more special and give the usual cook a well-earned break! There are a number of beautiful walks on trails and footpaths in Eggesford Forest and Heywood which will suit both energetic and casual walkers.
The extensive grounds of the estate offer plenty of space for children to play out, and a special area set aside allows pent-up energy to be released on the climbing frames provided, whilst still being under the parents’ watchful eyes. Guests are also free to wander the 30-acre estate and take in some great views. To one side of the courtyard, a sauna and hot tub offer the opportunity for the adults to spoil themselves, with shower facilities also to hand.
Beyond the contrasting woodland and pastureland of the estate, a stretch of the River Taw offers keen anglers the chance to enjoy a spot of salmon and trout fishing whilst on holiday – although there is a limited amount of tackle available on-site, guests are requested to bring their own. Situated on the 180-mile long Tarka Trail, cyclists and walkers can also take in the delightful array of landscapes between Dartmoor and Exmoor, and the ‘Tarka Line’ is a great way to savour the pretty area by train. Golf enthusiasts will find a par 3 golf course within the pretty village of Chulmleigh (2 miles), which is the nearest village to Eggesford Barton. Quite self-sufficient, it boasts a bakery, post office and a choice of three pubs. For eating out, Chulmleigh has two recommended restaurants: one specialising in fish dishes and the other in Indian cuisine, and Winkleigh has an award-winning restaurant famous for its food and local cider. South Molton, 8 miles, as the nearest main town, offers an array of shops, w...

North Devon

From the vast unspoilt expanses of Exmoor to its endless sandy beaches and charming seaside towns and villages, North Devon makes for the perfect cottage holiday getaway. Discover the beauties of this tranquil landscape for yourself with one of Go2's holiday lets or cottages in North Devon. Wild and rugged, Exmoor is great for walking, riding and cycling. This is Lorna Doone country, where farmers have battled the elements for centuries. The coastline here is truly spectacular and is a real highlight. Walk the Coastal Path, and you’ll be treated to stunning views of high cliffs dropping straight to the sea, or to small coves far below. Beach lovers will also enjoy a holiday in North Devon. Resorts like Woolacombe and Saunton offer long stretches of sandy beach that are ideal for surfing and sailboarding. Clovelly is a real beauty spot, and very picturesque, while Appledore is a picture-perfect fishing village. Ilfracombe is a more traditional seaside resort, but is not overly-commercialised, while the twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth have an atmosphere all their own. Don’t miss the wonderful water-powered funicular railway here.

South Devon

Justly famous as one of England’s finest destinations, South Devon has everything you need for the perfect cottage holiday. Go2 has an extensive collection of holiday lets and cottages in South Devon, all ideally located for the many attractions on offer here. The fabulous coastline, stretching from Sidmouth to Plymouth is the main draw here. There are glorious beaches, mysterious estuaries, rugged cliffs and sandy coves to explore, as well as the famous English Riviera. Taking in the resorts of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, it offers all the facilities you need for a great seaside cottage holiday. Or if you prefer somewhere quieter on one of our South Devon holidays, there are the Georgian charms of Sidmouth, or Salcombe, long a favourite with sailors. Inland, you can get away from it all in the rugged splendours of Dartmoor National Park or just enjoy the rolling hills and rural delights of the South Devon countryside. Make time for a visit to Exeter, the bustling capital of the region, with its cathedral, cobbled streets and wide selection of shops. Or step back in time to the Elizabethan age in Totnes with its charming tudor houses.
