Our holiday home was quaint and old. Extension of working farmhouse. Thouroughly enjoyed staying there. Strangely, our old collie, who usually takes 3 days to settle or eat, made himself at home straight away. Good vibes! Tame sheep in enclosure, welcoming us to the day. Fabulous. Have used Marsdens in the past, and recommend. Will use again. Exmoor is beautiful. No more to say. Visit Heddons Mouth beach and drink in the Hunters Inn garden, which is superb for children. See the Peacocks. The Station Inn at Blackmoor Gate, and The Black Venus in Challacombe for food. Parracombe and surrounding area has a very good community spirit. Worth indulging. Actual entrance to farm is directly opposite pub down little track. We couldn't find it, but asked a local. Would like to return, maybe for a winter break.

Mrs S B,

The owners went out of their way to support my father in law who unfortunately had a problem with his leg. They even walked his dog! Amazing hospitality going beyond what would be expected.

Mr Ian T,

This was a great location and also there was a nice pub with good food in the village about 1 minute walk away. It was nice to see (and hear) the new born lambs in the field just outside. The people were really friendly. We would very happily stay there again.

mr N H,

Holwill Farm Wing is ideally located in the quiet village of Paracombe. Ideal for Coastal and Country Walks and touring Exmoor by car etc. About 10 minutes from Lynton and Lynmouth by car. The accommodation is clean, warm and comfortable, with good beds, and two easy chairs and and sofa in country cottage style. The heating is by heat store units, additional electric heaters in the lounge, bedroom and bathroom. We have stayed at Holwill Farm Wing regularly over the last twelve years. A warm welcome is always given by the host and she is on hand in the adjacent farm house.

Mr Richard B,
