The main features of the large open plan living room are the beautiful wood beams, and the exposed brick wall, which give the cottage wonderful character. The comfy, quality soft furnishings make for a great place to relax in the evenings and watch the 42" Smart TV. The glass patio doors lighten up the room and allow you to look out onto the terrace, you can even open up the doors on a warm summers day and listen to the local wildlife. At the other end of the living room is the dining area. This is tastefully decorated to match the living room and the large table can seat up to 10 for big family meals.

Pots, pans, cutlery and crockery are also in place for your use.

All three bedrooms are of a very good size and are equipped with zip and link beds to give you a choice of a king-size double bed or two single beds. The family bathroom can be used solely by bedroom one if no extra guests are staying on either the sofa-bed or on the mezzanine. It features a bath with an overhead shower and a separate hand-held shower attachment, as well as a basin and a toilet. Bedroom two and Bedroom three both have en-suites with a toilet, a basin and a bath with a hand-held shower attachment, as well as separate shower cubicles.

Lovely cottage with fabulous facilities on site

  • 5 of 5

Stable Cottage is a great place from which to explore North Devon whether you're walking, riding, cycling or driving. It is set in incredibly beautiful and peaceful surroundings with wonderful facilities on site particularly if you have children.

The cottage is really well kitted out and was very clean. The hotel staff were very friendly and gave us really good advice about things to do. We'd love to go back.

Peaceful week

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. All the staff were so welcoming and went out of their way to help. The cottage was clean and well prepared. The cream tea on arrival was an unexpected touch, delicious.

We had three meals in the hotel & the food was excellent.

The Golf Course was in good condition & the family enjoyed the large indoor pool. We found plenty to do on the estate.

A great holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Stables and were very pleased with the accommodation. The bedrooms were large and each bedroom had it's own bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked for ourselves every day. The mezzanine floor for the children (aged 8 and 6) was perfect.

We were extremely lucky with the weather and spent a lot of time on the patio. The swimming pool was lovely and some days we swam twice a day - never over crowded and at times we were the only ones there. My 2 sons used the golf course which they said was a great course. We had a boat and because the weather was so good we were able to water ski etc launching the boat at Appledore.

The staff at Highbullen were always friendly and very helpful.

The only reason I have rated this holiday 4 stars and not 5 is purely location. Due to the excellent weather it was a good half hour to the coast.

A great holiday was had by all.

Other Activities:

With many facilities onsite it is easy never to leave the Highbullen Estate once there, however many activities can also be enjoyed in the local area. Head to one of the beautiful North Devon beaches, including Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton where water sports, such as sea kayaking and surfing can be experience. There are also opportunities to walk the South West Coast Path with routes around Combe Martin and Mortehoe providing some of the most breath-taking views. For cyclist, the Tarka Trail is a great way to see the area, as the well maintained pathway is largely traffic free and suitable for all ages and levels of experience.

Stable Cottage is ideally located for exploring both the coast and countryside of North Devon with Exmoor and the glorious sandy beaches all within easy reach.

The lovely North Devon coast is about 30 minutes away, with the sandy beaches at Saunton Sands and Woolacombe Bay in one direction and Westward Ho! in the other. There are also smaller coves and beaches to discover, including those at Hartland, Instow, Appledore and Lee.

Exmoor National Park is also nearby and well worth a visit with its beautiful rugged landscape and traditional tea rooms that serve wonderful cream teas. Stop off at Lynton and Lynmouth where Exmoor meets the sea and savour some of the locally caught fish in one of the restaurants.

Stable Cottage is located on the Highbullen Hotel, Golf and Country Club Estate and guests can take advantage of the onsite leisure facilities, as well as enjoy meals in the restaurant. Facilities onsite include an excellent 18-hole golf course, all weather tennis courts, an indoor heated swimming pool, a billiards room and a gym. If staying during the warmer months enquire about enjoying afternoon tea within the grounds.

Highbullen is situated within the pretty countryside village of Chittlehamholt, which has its own pub, The Exeter Inn, and a small village shop selling daily essentials. There are many walks that can be enjoyed locally, as well as safe routes for cyclists. Stables for horse riding are also within easy reach.
