Taw Valley Cottage, and the neighbouring cottage Meadow View (also a holiday let sleeping three people), are situated in 400 acres of stunning countryside where you can see herons and kingfishers by the water’s edge, or take a stroll through the woodland and catch site of red deer. Just outside Umberleigh on Umberleigh Barton Farm which was made famous by Tarka the Otter by Henry Williamson, these cottages have plenty of walks leading from the front door and within the farm’s boundary which take in the beautiful Devonshire countryside. And for the keen fishermen amongst you, you can buy a permit to fish on the river by prior arrangement. The original farm dates back to the 9th century and two barns have been skilfully converted into high-quality holiday accommodation, combining many original features with modern comforts.

Meadow View and Taw Valley can be booked together for extended family and friends (a small discount applies if booking both together for July and August). Once inside Taw Valley Cottage, a high vaulted open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner greets you. This superb, light room has full width window and floor to ceiling doors opening out on the patio area; a slate tiled floor, stripped pine doors and oak beams. The well-equipped kitchen has an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. The bathroom with a shower over the bath is on the round floor, along with a single bedroom. Above the ground floor, there is a galleried landing overlooking the living area which is home to the double bedroom. From this room, there are amazing countryside views. Outside the property, there is a patio area and lawned garden with views over the surrounding 400 acres
