About the Owner

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.

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"

Great property lovely and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely long weekend, house spacious and very clean. Distant views of Sea from bedrooms and a real feeling of being the countryside.

It was an excellent base for our next stage of the South West Coastal path. Wished we could have stayed longer!

Owner's Response: Lovely review thank you, delighted you had a great stay and hopefully you will have a chance to return for a longer stay in the future. Views of the sea are lovely, not mentioned on our write up so as not to build expectations for those who want to be right on the coast. But really pleased you have highlighted them in your review for others to note. Wishing you all the best, Lorraine and Mark

Very comfortable and peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an extremely relaxing and comfortable stay at the spacious Parlour. The Parlour is set in peaceful, rural surroundings and provides easy access by car to the spectacular coastline which offers plenty of walking opportunities. The five star rating is well-merited!

Fabulous Holiday at the Parlour in Philham, Hartland

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Parlour 13th-20th August 2016 with my son (age 15), daughter (age 10), Mum and Mother-in-law. The Parlour is a beautiful barn conversion set in the countryside but close enough that you can easily drive to various beaches and places of interest. The rooms are really spacious and well equipped and the bedrooms are what you would expect a suite to be in a top hotel.

On arrival Lorraine and Mark gave us a great welcome and provided us with fresh eggs from their hens, bread, milk, bacon and sausages. This was a lovely touch and very much appreciated.

We visited many places during our stay, with our favourites being Hartland Quay, Clovelly, Westward Ho! and Knightshayes House (National Trust).

We all had a truly fantastic holiday and would not hesitate to return in the future.

Lorraine and Mark - thanks for letting us stay at your fabulous holiday home and we will hopefully see you again.

Excellent well kept and presented property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Parlour, and it provided a comfortable, welcoming base for us to return to after our days out. The kitchen/dining/sitting area is a great space in which to eat and socialise at the end of the day, whist the bedrooms are large and comfortable, with the en-suites for each bedroom being very useful. The table football/small pool table was a bonus that proved to be popular with the children, as did the stash of board games they found in the cupboard in the hallway. Mark and Lorraine where both helpful and attentive when required, without being intrusive - great hosts. The area around the property is quite, but access to the main roads is relatively simple and quick, and there are plenty of small bays, coves, villages and hamlets to explore in the area. Sandy Mouth proved popular for body boarding, whilst Hartland Quay and Welcombe Mouth have fantastic rocky beaches great for walking or exploring. Despite the indifferent weather we had a great time in Hartland and at the Parlour and hope to return. Thanks again, David.

A great "away from it all" barn conversion.

  • 5 of 5

"The Parlour" fitted our requirements and provided us with all the space we needed. 3 great bedrooms, all en-suite, with plenty of hot water. We were an all adult party of 6 but I am sure that should you bring children there's plenty for them to do inside the property, loads of games provided, and a beautiful garden with a rope swing for the sunny days. Food waste shouldn't be an issue as the onsite hens gratefully received our waste every day.

Hartland offers a lot for people to do, walking, taking in the sites, arts and crafts as well as the usual offerings from local tea rooms. The owners were on hand at the start of the holiday and their door was always open for us to ask about local things to do and pups to visit. The Parlour was immaculate and very clean and the owners left a welcome basket of food, eggs,milk and butter, and I would without question book again at the Parlour or even if its just the 2 of us try their B&B accommodation.

We very much hope to see you again in the future. All the very best, Lorraine and Mark.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Golf : Bude at 15 Miles Nearest Train : Barnstaple at 20 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Hartland at 2 Miles Nearest Beach : Hartland at 2 Miles Car: necessary
