We have eight self-catering holiday cottages in North Devon. They are ideal for group breaks and holidays, weekend or midweek breaks as well as UK horse riding holidays where pets are always welcome. Our cottages in Devon are set around an old cobbled courtyard with original fenced pond.  Collacott Farm Cottages in Devon offer a quiet setting for a group activity holiday, or the ideal place for that special celebration. Our cottages sleep from 2-12 people with a total complex capacity of 51.  The holiday cottages are all centrally heated and inviting and provide the ideal base for exploring Exmoor, North Devon's dramatic coastline, Dartmoor and Tarka Country.

We have a fenced outdoor heated swimming pool (summer months only) as well as a tennis court, games room, trampoline room as well as a BHS Approved Riding School too.
