About the property

Luxury 4 bedroom cottage, sleeping 8, with access to onsite facilities

Fairways East is a luxurious cottage providing accommodation for up to 8 guests in 4 en-suite bedrooms. It can also be booked with its sister cottage Fairways West for groups of up to 16 (cottages are linked by internal double-doors).

Recently redecorated to create a modern contemporary feel, all the rooms are bright and spacious. To the rear of the cottage there is a lovely private patio ideal for enjoying an alfresco meal or a lazy breakfast in the morning sunshine. The cottage, which is south facing also has a large garden mainly laid to lawn and perfect for children to roam freely in safety.

The house itself has 4 spacious en-suite bedrooms, three with zip and link beds allowing them to be set up as either a double or a twin depending on guests requirements. Two of the bedrooms are also located on the ground floor of the property making them ideal for less able guests or those looking for a little more peace and quiet. Of the four en-suite bathrooms, two have a bath with shower over-head, one (located on the ground floor) is a shower room, and the other with the Master Bedroom is fitted with a bath and separate walk-in shower.

Fairways East has a wonderful country kitchen, which is well equipped with a classic Rayburn, a dishwasher, an electric cooker/hob and an American style fridge/freezer with large pull-out drawer. Past the kitchen is a gorgeous dining area with large table with ample space to seat all the family.

The living room is situated within the house's beautiful conservatory, which is fully heated and basks in sunlight during the day. The conservatory has large comfy sofas and armchairs, as well as TV. From here doors open directly onto the garden.

Outside the garden is immaculate and ideal for children to play in safely. There are garden chairs and tables, and a BBQ, so perfect for evening meals overlooking the lovely countryside. The garden can be accessed either via the back door or from the living room.

As the house is on the edge of the Highbullen golf course it is ideal for a golf party, but the hotel also has wonderful leisure facilities including a 20m indoor heated swimming pool and all weather tennis courts. All of the leisure facilities located onsite are available to guests staying at Fairways East and many are included in the price.

Nearby there is the quaint North Devon village of Chittlehamholt, which has a good dog friendly pub, and a few miles further on is Chittlehampton, which has a medieval church and an award winning pub.

The market town of South Molton is not far and the stunning beaches on the North Devon coast are about a half hour drive away and provide great surfing, there are also a few quiet coves ideal for small children. Exmoor is around a 30-minute drive and Exeter an hour away. The fishing village of Appledore is not far and full of pretty art and craft shops. Across from Appledore is Instow another pretty estuary village with great pubs and restaurants. There really is no shortage of places to visit when staying at Fairways East.

The cottages at Highbullen have been decorated and furnished to offer guests a very modern, light and bright feel, which is both relaxing and refreshing. Both Fairways East and West can be booked together to offer stylish accommodation for up to 16 people, with both accommodating up to eight guests each. The golf and leisure facilities at the nearby Highbullen Hotel and Country Club can either be an integral part of your holiday or be ignored, it is not intrusive but does offer guests wonderful leisure facilities on your doorstep, many of which can be enjoyed for free or at a discounted rate, including the use of both the indoor and outdoor swimming pool. The tennis courts and 18-hole golf course are not included in the price but can be enjoyed at a discounted rate, which is the same as offered to guests staying at the hotel. If needed during your stay at the cottage, guests can also take advantage of the restaurant at the hotel.

Fantastic property and excellent facilities onsite

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious, comfortable and well-appointed holiday property. Lovely lounge/conservatory area. Ensure bathrooms for every bedroom were very welcome.

Great to have use of the large indoor swimming pool and very well equipped gym.

Enjoyed some meals in the hotel restaurants when we didn't feel like cooking.

A lovely place for a chill out.

Excellent break for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a long weekend staying at Fairways east and west. Very spacious accommodation for 15 guests. Open plan kitchen diner into conservatory was a very good social space for 15. We added a small table to the farmhouse table so we could eat together. Lovely views across the fairway with sitings of deer and rabbits. Accommodation is tastefully decorated and furnished including comfortable sofas and beds. Bathrooms are very clean and mostly ensuite. The outside space needs some attention as window frames are badly pealing and BBQ hadn't been cleaned. We made the most of the 4 well maintained hard surface tennis courts, and also played snooker table, table tennis and swimming pool which were all free of charge. Some played a round of golf for £10. Will consider returning!

Beautiful Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage was beautiful. Most amazing views. Only thing is it is secluded from any supermarkets and they close at 8pm. Other than that, very clean, equipped cottage. Would definitely visit again!

Lovely cottage, well appointed. The best part being Susan and team bending over backwards to meet our families changing needs. We felt very well looked after and the cream tea you supplied was delightful. Thank you very much

great place to enjoy a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend at Fairways East. The house is recently refurbished, has 4 double rooms with ensuite plus a further double ensuite annexe. The house is ideally situated with fabulous views across the hills, just a short walk from the hotel and leisure facilities, and from the village where there is a delightful pub and community shop

Our party of mixed ages all enjoyed the house, grounds and facilities and we were well looked after by the manageress and the estate operations manager who introduced us to the property and its facilities on arrival. All in all a great place to gather the family.

We ate at the hotel restaurant for Sunday lunch which was delicious, had a good selection and was served in a timely manner - but we were not hurried and had an enjoyable long lunch in great surroundings.

Other Activities:

Highbullen Hotel has many facilities that are available for guests staying at the cottage to take advantage of, these include an 18-hole golf course, seven brand new all-weather tennis courts, an indoor heated swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool (available during the warmer months), a fully equipped gym, a sauna, a steam room, a Jacuzzi, spa and beauty treatments, a croquet lawn and a billiards room with full size snooker table. Fishing and many country pursuits can also be enjoyed on the estate and can be arrange in advance.

If you are interested in dining at the hotel Devon View Restaurant offers wonderful food all with the backdrop of the beautiful North Devon countryside. Sunday roasts can also be enjoyed here, as can several themed nights, including curry night. For more informal meals there is The Cellars, which offers a children's menu. There are also a range of lounges and bars where you can have a drink whilst reading the newspaper. During warm months tea can also be arranged on the lawn. Pizza and takeaway can also be ordered through the hotel and delivered direct to the cottage.

Fairways East is located on the Highbullen Hotel, Golf and Country Club Estate, which is set high on a ridge between Exmoor and Dartmoor and bordered by the River Taw and River Mole. The estate, which is in Chittlehamholt, North Devon is a lovely countryside setting with wonderful rural views and home to lots of local wildlife, including red deer.

Within the village itself, which is only a short walk away there is a good dog friendly pub, a village playing field, and a handy shop selling day-to-day essentials.

For walkers there are an abundance of local footpaths and nature trails to explore, as well as woodlands and open countryside. Many of these can be accessed from the cottage and estate and are suitable for all ages and abilities. Cyclists will also love the area with lots of country lanes nearby; alternatively, the Tarka Trail, a largely traffic free tarmac pathway can be picked up in either Barnstaple or Bideford.

The market town of South Molton is just a short drive from the cottage and has plenty to entertain its visitors, including independent shops, several pubs and cafes (we highly recommend a visit to the Corn Dolly), and the Quince Honey Farm, which is a family friendly attraction.

If a day at the beach is required there are several within easy reach, including Westward Ho!, Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton. These are blue flag beaches and are patrolled by lifeguards from Easter through to the end of the October half term. Many of the beaches along the coast are ideal for water sports with surfing being the most popular. Smaller coves can also be found along the coastline and can be great for playing in rock pools or enjoying a spot of peace and quiet.

If you would prefer to explore Exmoor, the National Park is less than a 30-minute drive and is home to some lovely tea rooms - stop off at Lynton and Lynmouth where Exmoor meets the sea and ride the Cliff Railway.
