Self catering holiday cottages on an organic dairy farm near Exeter in Devon

The Holiday Cottages                          

Highdown Farm self catering holiday cottages date back about 400 years. They have been renovated and tastefully decorated to a very high standard and are well furnished and equipped throughout.

You will find the cottages situated in a peaceful location, high above the Culm Valley, with breathtaking views of the countryside beyond - early risers will see some magnificent sunrises! It is an idyllic place to have a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living.

There are two cottages and a converted barn to choose from. The Old Farmhouse is very spacious, ideal for large families or two families sharing, it sleeps eight people and two babies, whilst Poorman's Cot is cosy and compact, perfect for a small family, this one sleeps up to four people and a baby.  The Cider Barn is an ideal retreat for couples to relax and take time out.

All three cottages can be hired for larger parties, ie for a family gathering or special celebration.
