Appletree Cottage at Cotmore Farm is a gorgeous oak-and-slate stable barn conversion in a quiet courtyard on a small farm just minutes from the sea: it will pamper you with its luxurious airy interiors and at the same time soothe your soul in the absolute peace and tranquility of rural South Devon, where miles of twisting footpaths and quiet sunken lanes lead to the many sandy coves and safe, award-winning beaches for which this part of England is justly famous.


Appletree Cottage is our third and last farm building conversion at Cotmore Farm. It was once a stable barn, its origins betrayed by the spectacular beams that protrude from the ceiling and in the thickness of the stone and rubble walls shown in the depth of the upstairs window reveals. Into this wonderful geometric space we have introduced a very modern interior with every energy-saving comfort, from double insulated walls and ceilings to LED lighting and underfloor heating. Slate and oak are materials found in abundance in this part of Devon and we have used them liberally: all doors, furniture, and the upstairs floor are made of oak, while slate floors feature in all downstairs areas.

Accessed from the ground floor, the master bedroom has a 6ft bed as its centrepiece; next door is a luxuriously appointed limestone bathroom with curved bath and power shower. Painted wooden shutters in both rooms give precise control of light and, on hotter days, allow a cooling breeze to circulate while maintaining absolute privacy. Across the corridor, the spacious second bedroom can be configured with two singles or one super-kingsize bed, with easily enough room to add a travel cot. Another ensuite bathroom boasts a huge walk-in enclosure with Grohe power-shower. All downstairs areas benefit from touch-sensitive underfloor heating, individually controllable in each room.

The upstairs floor is reached via a glass balustraded staircase: here the architecture of the vaulted roof and exposed trusses of ancient pitch pine combine to create an airy sense of light and space. Windows to the south and east look over gently rolling hills towards the sea at Beesands, while to the north, a wall of glass invites the outdoors in. A compact but fully equipped kitchen and comfortable dining area mean you can cook with confidence if you don't fancy going out; while comfy leather sofas, a widescreen satellite TV, and a hi-tech woodburner provide a congenial atmosphere for an evening in, whatever the weather.

Through the double French doors, and backed by a steep bank of wildflowers and roses, lies a totally secluded, glass-balustraded private sitting-out area, a suntrap from breakfast till sundown, with outdoor dining facilities and barbecue. Paved steps lead down to the front door, and a grassy path winds up past the dovecot to a sheltered orchard field with a trampoline, perfect for a game of football, badminton or croquet.

Tilgang for gjester

Guests have a private garden and free access to the orchard with its giant trampoline. They are welcome to explore the farm and visit the animals in their homes: we keep horses, Shetland sheep, chickens, ducks and rare breed pigs, with very cute piglets!

Superb accommodation and the 6' beds were so comfy. Whole apartment had everything there that you would need for a self catering holiday. Lovely welcome pack as well. Try the bacon and sausages they are superb along with collecting your own fresh eggs from the nests. It was lovely to see chickens and ducks roaming around plus the pigs and sheep. Would certainly recommend a stay here.

We had a fantastic stay at Appletree Barn. It was everything that the photos suggest and more. It is furnished to a very high standard, with lovely homely touches. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch. Piers and Sue made us feel very welcome and were always on hand if we needed them, but also left us to wander round the farm if we wished. Going hunting for eggs and seeing the piglets and horses were particular highlights. So were the homemade sausages that we cooked on the bbq! The location of the farm is excellent. There are lots of beautiful places to visit within a short drive. I can't think of any negatives at all. The only one very minor thing that I couldn't find was a whisk! But we adapted and used the milk frother! All in all we had a lovely time and I would definitely like the opportunity to return.

Beautiful house on a working farm, a short drive away from Kingsbridge and perfect for exploring South Devon! We received a fantastic welcome pack and some great restaurant recommendations. It was fun just visiting their piglets and horses around the property. Had a wonderful time and would love to come back!

We had a wonderful stay in Appletree Cottage. It was lovely to find the accommodation was just as pictured and there was nothing to disappoint. The atmosphere of Cotmore Farm is certainly friendly and welcoming. It was the first time we visited this area a Devon and will not be the last. We even quickly got used to driving the narrow country lane, in fact they slow down the pace of life too holiday mode.

Piers BrukerprofilPiers er en superhost.
Cotmore is a 17th century house surrounded by 13 acres of land that was already a farm more than a thousand years ago. It is a welcoming place that is home to Piers, Sue, their teenage children, some cats, and a small, friendly, bouncy dog called Jack. We moved here from south-ea…
