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 North Devon

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

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.
