Holsworthy Holiday Cottages at Southcombe Farm

The Homestead is an amazing 2 bedroom luxury self catering cottage. It is really comfortable and has lovely country views.

The Homestead sleeps 4 with plenty of space and comfort. Perfect for small families, friends or couples. The ground floor is open plan with a country kitchen, dining area, sunny lounge with two comfortable leather sofas, stereo, TV, DVD, log burner and of course fantastic views out over the surrounding countryside. Upstairs are the cosy, but spacious bedrooms with views out on to the surrounding farmland. The bathroom is lovely too, fully tiled, and spotlessly clean!

Although the Homestead is bright and airy, it is also warm having been insulated to the highest standards. Whenever you visit, whatever the weather, you will be very comfortable.

About the neighbourhood
The Homestead is situated at Southcombe Farm just to the southwest of the lovely Market Town of Holsworthy (less than 5 mins by car or about 30 mins walk).
The town has all of the traditional shops / pubs that you would expect, plus a Waitrose supermarket which also has a handy delivery service.
The Homestead is detached and positioned in it's own private / enclosed gardens. Your only neighbours are some distance away. Your hosts Paul and his family live in the Farmhouse and in the summer holidays the Barn in the farmyard is also let to guests.
Southcombe is a sheep farm complete with nature trail. It takes about 45 mins to complete and you could see anything from a frog to a deer! For families with children we are happy for you to be involved with morning feeding.
