Hollacombe Farm

Hollacombe Farm lies on the western periphery of the Exmoor National Park, within its 267 square miles of beautiful protected landscape. We occupy an outstanding rural position and enjoy an exceptional setting with superb views over the surrounding unspoilt countryside.

Access to Hollacombe is unrivalled and very easy with our own exclusive postcode. We offer complete seclusion, peace and tranquility right away from anyone and any noise – just birdsong all year round and the occasional sheep bleating!

There has been a farmstead on the site at Hollacombe Farm since at least Domesday times, when it was held by a Walter de Douai. The traditional farmhouse is believed to date in part from the 17th century with later Georgian style addition. In more recent years a barn conversion has created a well-appointed detached holiday cottage.

The Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the stunning North Devon coastline, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its popular resorts of Lynton, Lynmouth, Combe Martin and Saunton.
