Stuart & Lesley purchased Garramarsh Farm in September 2015, which has fulfilled a long held dream to live in Devon. We have been married for 37 years & have 3 grown up children & 2 grandchildren.

We are both originally from Buckinghamshire where we ran a family owned construction company. We were lucky enough to exit these stressful jobs & escape to Devon

We look forward to welcoming you & will do our very best to make your stay enjoyable.

The property is very clean and tidy and well maintained.

The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful, pointing us in the right direction for a variety of places to see, things to do and different ways to entertain 5 children.

Excellant Mole Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the beginning of June and found Mole Cottage to be everything we could have wanted. It was well equipped with all that we needed and more as we did not need to use the washing machine and dryer. We found the cottage to be very clean, having in the past needed to clean before we started our holiday but with Mole Cottage we did not need to do anything like that.

The cottage had views over the hills, with a stream nearby and a very picturesque drive through the village of Alswear to reach it. The local town of South Molton was only about 3miles away and was a very nice country town with a weekly market. This area was also well placed to visit most of Devon, being near the middle of the county.

We found Lesley and Stuart very welcoming and they were able to supply us with fresh eggs.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my son and I to stay after some long walks. It was a well equipped and comfortable cottage in a very peaceful setting. We received a very warm welcome from Sandra and Mick who made us feel very much at home. When down in Devon we will certainly return.

Great little get away

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much, Sandra and Mick. We had a fabulous 4 day break away from it all, superb walks and a brilliant base to come to in the evenings thanks to you. The cottage offers everything we could ask for and it was great to see you took note of previous guests suggestions.

The cottage was clean and really well equipped, for two of us just perfect.

Wishing you well for the future with the holiday rentals as well as any further marathons for Mick and Tess.

All the very best, Michaela & Jaime
