About the property



Welcome to Garramarsh Farm where you will find Mole and Crooked Oak Cottages. Both cottages are tastefully decorated and well equipped, offering excellent holiday accommodation. Whether you are looking for a romantic break, a family holiday or just want to escape to the country to relax, we can cater for you. We can offer cots, high chairs etc for infants if required. This is a peaceful secluded location, yet only 5 minutes from the local amenities of South Molton. The scenery here is amazing & on a clear night the night sky is fabulous. Situated in the beautiful North Devon countryside, just 13 miles east of Barnstaple and 8 miles south of Exmoor National Park. Our central location offers many places to explore within easy reach. North Devon has miles of golden sandy beaches, roaring surf, coastal cliff-top walks, the moors, the tarka trail, several NT properties, cycling, horse-riding, golf, sailing, sea fishing & lake fishing. Private river fly fishing is available on site, just a 2 minute walk from the accommodation. The cottages sit detached from the main farm house and have their own private seating areas with gas BBQ's. Both cottages have central heating plus Mole Cottage has a wood burner. Heating, electricity, crisp linen & fluffy towels are included in the rental. Ample parking is available adjacent to the cottages. To make your arrival easier we are more than happy to accept a supermarket delivery on your behalf prior to your arrival. We look forward to extending a warm welcome to you soon.

About Lesley Robinson

Stuart & Lesley purchased Garramarsh Farm in September 2015, which has fulfilled a long held dream to live in Devon. We have been married for 38 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.

Why Lesley Robinson chose South Molton

We purchased Garramarsh Farm because it was absolutely perfect for us. It is in a place we love & somewhere that we hope our guests will enjoy too. North Devon is a very special place. We have Exmoor & the beach more or less on our doorstep. Garramarsh is in a quiet, secluded location with wonderful views, & yet only 5 minutes from the amenities of South Molton

What makes this cottage unique

A holiday at Garramarsh Farm offers you the peace and quiet of the gorgeous Devon countryside and private river fishing on site. Yet our cosy secluded cottages are just a short car ride from the small bustling market town of South Molton. A local cattle market is held each month & also a weekly farmers market on a Thursday morning. The Panier market is held on Thursday & Saturday
