Coulscott’s white Georgian manor and original farmhouse peak through the trees in a lovely leafy valley near the North Devon coast but closer inspection reveals an exclusive hamlet of stunning holiday cottages and fantastic family facilities. Indoors and out, children and grown-ups alike are spoiled rotten, staying in the lap of luxury and having so many ways to while away the days without leaving the glorious 12 acres of grounds.

There are 6 properties at Coulscott, comprising Georgian House, Old Farmhouse, The Old Barn and three cosy cottages created from the old farm buildings. All of them have been designed and furnished to stunning standards which would be perfectly placed in the pages of swish interiors magazines.

From magnificent galleried living rooms to sumptuous period elegance, Travertine tiled bathrooms and four poster beds, all the properties provide somewhere special for families and of course they come with all the baby and toddler essentials as well.

The home entertainment is bang up to date, including Apple TV’s, Netflix, Sky free view, DVD players and unlimited WiFi. If parents can’t be bothered to cook, a wide range of frozen ready meals from ‘COOK’ are available to buy from the courtyard freezer, along with delicious local ice cream.

What’s especially great about Coulscott for families are the superb facilities that will keep everyone happy whatever the weather. The lovely indoor pool is kept at a toasty 30 degrees and has great views through big barn windows, with seats around the side to kick back with a book. An adjoining games room includes table tennis and table football, whilst babies and toddlers have their own soft play room, with a ball pool and giant Liquorice Allsorts!

There are acres of garden and grounds for children to play hide and seek, have picnics by a stream or build dens in the woods, plus a new outdoor play area includes a wooden pirate ship, 2-storey Wendy House, adventure climbing frame and swings, custom made tractor with a slide, turf labyrinth and a large, netted trampoline.

Children may well meet a peacock strutting around the garden and will be delighted to get acquainted with the Coulscott menagerie of hens and ducks, alpacas, pygmy goats, micro pigs and Matilda the wallaby. Other wildlife are regular visitors to Coulscott, including owls, foxes and badgers who might just make an appearance in the dusky twilight.

Accommodation Overview:
Coulscott comprises 5-bedroom Georgian House, 5-bedroom Old Barn, 3-bedroom Old Farmhouse, 2 bedroom Peacock and Aylesbury Cottages and 1-bedroom Bantam Cottage, all set in 12 acres of gardens and grounds with an indoor pool, adventure play area and friendly animals.

Bantam Cottage: (sleeps 2 + 1 baby in a cot), with its 4-star gold award from Visit England, may be bijou and boutique but is bursting with style and luxury. Striking feature walls give the open plan living/dining area a touch of class and there’s a cosy corner sofa, Sky freeview TV with Netflix and a DVD player. The compact little kitchen is modern and well equipped, including a microwave and hand blender for whizzing up baby food. Upstairs there’s a little cot room and bedroom with a romantic king size 4-poster and ensuite marble wet room. Bantum Cottage has a bistro table in the courtyard. When Peacock, Aylesbury and Bantum Cottages are booked together dining facilities are available for 10 people.

  • This property has all the little details you need for a great stay with a baby or young child - from a steriliser to a selection of toys and books. They really have thought of everything! Soft play and the indoor pool also a big plus for entertaining kids between trips. Would highly recommend!Review dated 27/06/2019

  • We were made to feel extremely welcome on our day of arrival, the property was lovely and had stair gates, a cot, high chair and a baby bath which is extremely helpful being as you have to carry around a small suitcase of baby equipment when you have a child!Review dated 11/03/2016

  • activities where great for my Son, Pool was nice and warm, soft play was a great idea, optional meals is a nice touch. environment was very relaxing and needed.Review dated 09/03/2016

  • Beatifull cottage. Very quiet location...all you can hear is the stream trickling and birds singing. Facilities are great both indoor and outdoor. Fantastic spaces for young children to let off steam in a safe and very clean environment! Only one negative...Floorboards in the cottage are a little creeky as is the bed!! Could be a problem if, like us, your baby/toddler is a light sleeper!Review dated 08/10/2015
