About Newhouse Farm Cottages

Newhouse Farm Cottages is a delighful cluster of child friendly and dog friendly cottages with excellent additional social facilities for large family get-togethers. Situated in the wonderful Devon countryside, with over 30 acres of flower-filled meadows, dotted with picnic spots overlooking the river and a fishing pond; it truly is a gem of a place for families to just kick back and relax. On the complex you will have the use of an indoor heated swimming pool and sauna, a toddler indoor soft playroom, a games room with pool, table tennis and table football to keep the teenagers happy with fields for ball games with football net and basketball hoop. Children will soon make a bee-line for the outdoor play area with swing, slides and look-out tower, or trampoline. For babies and toddlers there are travel cots and highchairs available free of charge with the added safety features of fitted stairgates.  With the Exmoor National Park to the north, and the Dartmoor National Park a short distance away to the south, Newhouse Farm Cottages are ideally situated for exploring the whole of Devon.

Away with the Kids are always on the look-out for fabulous places to go on holiday and we were delighted when we stayed at Newhouse Farm Cottages right in the heart of the beautiful Devonshire countryside. Not only have they got endless facilities to keep children and parents happy but each of their nine holiday cottages will accept your family pooch if he’s well behaved. It is the perfect place to plan a multi-generational holiday as the spacious social areas offer the right balance of activities and relaxation to appeal to everyone. And I am sure the grandparents would be delighted to be part of a memorable break with the grandkids. The best thing about this cottage complex is that you will never feel cooped up together, because it has bags of outdoor space and endless facilities that everyone can choose to eat and socialise together or do their own thing.

About the holiday cottages

Choose from nine very individual cottages each beautifully and very tastefully furnished, equipped with everything you would need; a real home from home. All the cottages at Newhouse Farm were formerly farm buildings, some in the traditional courtyard setting. Light and airy, with plenty of space, they have been thoughtfully converted, furnished and equipped to a high standard to create comfortable accommodation with all the modern facilities you would expect to find. The Linhay is a very spacious three bed barn conversion which has been designed to be fully wheelchair accessible and has en-suite wet rooms and with plenty of room to relax in. Elm Barn is the largest of the cottages (a five bedroom property) and has the wow factor with a stunning galleried entrance hall which lets natural light flood in, feature beamed ceilings, a wood burning stove and French doors leading out onto a private courtyard. Beech, Larch and Cedar all share a spacious patio area decked with garden furniture perfect which is the perfect spot to enjoy a barmy summer evening around a barbeque. We know that it can be diffficult to escape work completely and so there is free Wi-Fi available throughout the farm.

Swimming and Games Room

At Newhouse Farm Cottages you can use the indoor heated swimming pool from nine in the morning until nine at night, which provides hours of fun for children to splash around in and improve their stroke. The kidney shaped pool is approximate 10m by 3m and the amazing feature about this compact pool is that for serious swimmers it incorporates a Badu Jet Swim system which lets you swim against a current without the need to do lengths. There is the free use of the traditional sauna, and has changing facilities including showers and toilets. 

The spacious games room with table tennis, pool and table football is a superb place to hang out when the weather is not at its best. There is also an indoor area adjacent to the Hayloft where a fun game of badminton can be played with equipment provided.

Large Group Facilities

The Hayloft is a large spacious room set back away from the cottages which provides a private function/dining area for approximately 40 people - ideal for large groups of extended family who wish to celebrate and dine together. Although there are no cooking facilities in the room (food can either be prepared in the cottages or the owners can arrange caterers for you) the Hayloft has a hostess trolley to keep meals hot, a sink and dishwasher.

The grounds

The 30 acre grounds are full of exciting finds.  For those that love to bounce and play the adventure play ground is a magnet for energetic young children. The children's outdoor wooden play area has slides, climbing wall, swings, fort and lookout platforms. Located nearby is also the super trampoline with safety net.

Alternatively a wander around the farm trail will undoubtedly delight those who appreciate just how stunning Mother Nature can be. Families can relax in the midst of flower-filled meadows and woodland interrupted only by a chorus of baa-ing from the resident sheep across the valley. Footpaths wind steeply down to the river and lake, offering quiet corners and picnic spots. The area has an abundance of wildlife including the resident badgers, barn owls and red deer. The fishing lake is primarily stocked with carp and tench and offers quality fishing for all ages. The Lake is located well away from the cottages and is fenced mainly to keep those pesky otters out from eating all the fish.
