About the Owner

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.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was without doubt the perfect cottage to stay in. On arrival the key and property were easily accessible. Hot water and heating very speedy and welcome too. The cottage was very cosy but spacious and provided us with everything we could need for our stay. We would highly recommend staying here whether you are a family or just a couple hoping for a romantic getaway. Our hosts were there when we needed them but allowed us to get on with enjoying the beauty of the area. Many thanks again for some brilliant memories for my girlfriend and I.

Great cottage with very nice surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrible journey travelling down (M5) so our first impression was how peaceful it was and sat outside to unwind ,very nice. The cottage itself was very comfortable and very clean ,In the kitchen the only downside was the fridge being on the small side , but we coped ok.

Both Lesley and Stuart were very welcoming and helpful and we would recomend the Crooked Oak for a holiday.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us stayed across both cottages for the Christmas week. We received the warmest of welcomes and found both cottages superbly equipped with all that was needed.

Picturesque location which was accessible to many other great locations.

We are looking forward to our next visit.

Location

From the Owner

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

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Bristol at 60 Miles Nearest Barpub : Castle Inn George Nympton at 1.5 Miles Nearest Golf : Barnstaple at 16 Miles Nearest Train : Barnstaple at 16 Miles Nearest Motorway : M5 at 3 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Castle Inn at 1.5 Miles Nearest Beach : at 20 Miles Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Garramarsh Farm is situated approximately 20 miles from a top-class selection of North Devon's golden beaches, dunes and coastal towns - Lynton and Lynmouth, Woolacombe, Croyde, Putsborough and Saunton, Braunton Burrows - you will have difficulty finding a better coastline.

Local towns:

Garramarsh Farm is 2.5 miles from the picturesque town of South Molton. A traditional market town with an abundance of shops. Butchers, bakers, greengrocers, chemists, banks, cafes & much more. Lots of interesting independent retailers. Panier market on Thursday & Saturday. Cattle market once a month. Just 12 miles east of Barnstaple and 8 miles south of beautiful Exmoor National Park.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: We only accept payment by direct payment or cheque. We do not accept online booking or credit cards because our guests now get charged a fee of 6-8% for the privilege. We feel this is wrong & wish to protect our gusts from this. Cots, highchairs, stairgates & a toddler chair are available if required. We also have a baby bath, baby bouncy chair & a bottle steriliser. Plus a cot bed suitable for a child up to 6 years. Please note all Electricity and gas are included in the rental cost. Outside: There is a private sitting area. BBQ is available. Mole river is just 2 minutes walk where wild fly-fishing for brown trout and salmon is available.
