Nine stunning cottages set in 30 acres of private grounds
Whatever the season, you'll find a warm welcome awaits you at family-run Newhouse Farm Cottages, a rural retreat of 9 cottages set in 30 acres of courtyard gardens, organic fields and woodland in the heart of Devon. The Grade II listed stone barns have been converted to a high standard without losing the character of the buildings, which are full of original features such as stone walls, exposed wooden beams and roof trusses.
Our award-winning cottages are 5* rated by our guest reviews on Trip Advisor as well as being commended in the Visit Devon Tourism Awards. We’re an accredited Dark Sky Friendly Business with Exmoor National Park and thousands of stars, constellations, planets and the Milky Way are clearly visible in the skies above us.
Whether you're looking for a romantic break, a memory-making family holiday or a friends and family get-together, Newhouse Farm Cottages is the perfect venue. We can sleep up to 47 guests at any one time, have a wheelchair accessible barn (The Linhay) and we're dog friendly too. For large groups our function room, The Hayloft, is available for dining, meeting and partying, which means that everyone can come together when they want and return to the privacy of their own cottage for rest and relaxation when needed!
If you're looking for a venue for your corporate team-building event, a sports club tour, or a yoga or holistic retreat please do get in touch and we'll do our very best to accommodate your requirements. Please take a look at our site plan to get an idea of the layout here and floor plans can be seen on the individual cottage pages.
Debbie, Stuart, Keith and Doreen look forward to welcoming you to Newhouse Farm Cottages at any time of the year for a holiday or short break.
Trip Advisor Review - July 2023
“We booked Elm Barn for our family to celebrate my birthday and spend some time together. A truly beautiful location with open fields, walks and on site facilities to keep all the family, young and old, including the dog happy throughout. The Barn was very clean and tidy with plenty of space to relax and entertain alike. The online booking schedule for the Games Room and Indoor Swimming Pool was so simple and easy to use. The facilities themselves were great too and we maximised our sessions. Debbie and all of the family were very helpful throughout the whole process, assisting with initial enquiries ahead of the booking and were there to greet and see us off on departure. A very kind gesture in flying a birthday flag in the entrance when we arrived really did make a lovely first impression as you drive through the fields to the barn entrance. Thank you !!"
Trip Advisor Review - June 2023
"A great getaway for families and groups. The "space" is amazing - green spaces for wandering, play spaces both indoors and out for kids of all ages, and I mean all ages!! Party spaces....and the pool and sauna. The cottages themselves clean, cosy, with everything you could need, and Debbie & team on hand to respond to any requests. The guide is full of information and ideas for days out, although you could spend much of the time exploring Newhouse Farm and surrounds....the walk to pub in Witheridge a particular favourite of ours!! A super, value for money choice"
