About Mark Brumham

We moved to this beautiful part of Devon in 2007 as part of our "New Life in the Country" plan. We found Great Philham House with its unconverted barn and could not turn down the opportunity and challenge of creating our own holiday cottage.

Lorraine and I ensured that the barn was finished to a high standard, with character and luxury. We are so delighted with the result, that we stay in the cottage ourselves for an occasional holiday, even though its only next door!

Having worked hard to provide the highest standard of accommodation, we would now like to welcome everyone else to come and enjoy this fantastic part of Devon and are wonderful holiday cottage.

Mark Brumham purchased this barn in 2007

Why Mark Brumham chose Torridge

We are situated in the heart of the Hartland Peninsular and surrounded by Devon countryside. Its very difficult to accurately describe the area, as there are so many redeeming features, there is simply everything on offer here. Peaceful and tranquil surroundings, fantastic views, rugged coast line, hidden coves, sandy beaches to name but a few.

You simply cant help but fall in love with the area, everyone is so friendly and welcoming, the local pubs are full of atmosphere and local ale!

You can walk for miles, either in land or along the fabulous west country coastal path.

The hamlet of Philham, whist off the main routes, has easy access to the town of Hartland and the main A39, with links to Cornwall.

What makes this barn unique

The Parlour enjoys a large, private, enclosed, child friendly courtyard which is excellent for BBQ, eating out and soaking up the sunshine.

There is also a large lawn / meadow with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It is ideal for children of all ages, as there are rope swings and large trampoline available to play on.

Inside there is a large open plan living area, with fully fitted kitchen, leather suite, large dinning table and a warm cast iron wood burner.

There is also a games area, with multi function tabletop football / pool table.

The accommodation is well appointed, with large bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, including a family bathroom, with Jack and Jill Doors and a fabulous roll top bath.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Fantastic Spacious and Stylish. Children loved the Hens, the trampoline and exploring the lanes"

"The Parlour was a fantastic find. The large bedrooms were perfect for the twins. Great countryside location, lots to do locally"

"What a wonderful cottage and setting to bring our 2 girls and 6 month old son on their first holiday together. We felt at home as soon as we arrived"

Beautiful spacious property with all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

We settled the moment we arrived. Could let my little girl and our dog run and play as the courtyard was enclosed and gated. She loved playing on the trampoline and we barbecued every night. Great base to explore from. Amazing beaches at Westward Ho!, Saunton Sands, Bude to name just a few. Great fun for children at The Milky Way and The Big Sheep. There's also an outdoor pool in Bude at low tide. Can't recommend this property enough and hope to be back next year. Thank you.

Excellent Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has been finished to a high standard and was also prepared to a high standard ready for our stay. We could find fault with nothing. The welcome pack was much appreciated and although we hadn't requested them a stair gate and high chair were quickly produced upon request. Unfortunately the weather was truly horrendous the week we were there but if the accommodation had not been so good it would have felt so much worse. We highly recommend this cottage deep in the North Devon countryside.

First class

  • 5 of 5

This property is set in a beautiful and peaceful location, surrounded by farmland with views across fields and valley. You can just glimpse the sea from one direction. The outside of the property is charming with attention to every detail. Inside, it surpassed the online photos. The rooms are all very spacious and decorated / finished to a high spec. The kitchen is also well equipped with everything you could need for cooking meals, storing food ie two fridges plus large freezer and excellent washing machine. Three very generously sized bathrooms with walk in showers. Very comfortable beds and chairs with plenty of electrical sockets throughout. Excellent controllable central heating plus a log burner. This is a very welcoming property with lots of nice little touches that you would find in a very good quality guest house.

We have stayed in lots of holiday properties over many years and this is tops them all.

We spent most of our time coast walking and exploring the wooded valleys between Clovelly and Sandy Mouth, all of which surpassed expectation, really beautiful.

Lovely home in a very peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely comfortable home we stayed in over the Easter week, the owners Lorraine and Mark made us and our dogs most welcome. We had some beautiful weather and although the Parlour is in a very quiet location it was perfect for visiting some lovely scenic places in both Devon and Cornwall. The dogs loved being able to have a good run around in the field several times a day, which was a bonus. Because there is no light pollution, looking into the clear night sky was amazing, I don't think we have ever seen so many stars! We would definitely recommend the Parlour as a perfect place to stay.

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you Julie, a lovely review, capturing all the best bits about the Parlour. You are right about the stars, they can be pretty fantastic and stunning at their peak. With a bit of patience you can normally catch a shooting star or two as well. So glad you had a great holiday, we really hope we see you again in the future. Have a great summer, all the best, Mark and Lorraine.
