WELCOME TO WEST HOLLOWCOMBE FARM
Our self catering cottages are spacious and well appointed. Located in the glorious Exmoor National Park we offer absolute peace and quiet. However, with good luck and a following wind, we are only a three hour drive away from either London or Birmingham.
The Two Moors Way passes our gate and for the energetic numerous other walks can be explored. Dogs and horses are also welcome; the latter being accommodated on a DIY livery basis. Alternatively you may simply decide to chill out and enjoy the magnificent views and wildlife. A wide variety of moorland birds and mammals such as hares and rabbits to say nothing of red deer are regular visitors. Exmoor ponies are often to be seen grazing on adjoining common land.
If you wish to explore the area, we are within easy reach of the coastal towns of Porlock and Lynmouth and close to Lorna Doone country. The pretty town of Dulverton is only a short drive (or walk) away for shopping and browsing.
There is a adventure playground in front of the cottages as well as a selection of ride-on toys. We also have cots and highchairs available for your use. As a family business, we guarantee you a warm welcome in any one of our four cottages or in all four if you wish to bring your extended family too, perhaps for a special anniversary celebration.

We are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and you are welcome to explore all of our sixty acres of fields and woodlands. The land next to our river has not been cultivated for hundreds of years, making it an ideal spot for many rare plants and wildlife, especially the Heath Fritillary, one of the scarcest butterflies in the UK. The SSSI extends off into our woodlands which, with the help of Exmoor National Park, we are managing in a sympathetic manner to promote the flora and fauna that populate it. We have rare lichens on some of the older trees and the fallen trunks make great homes for all sorts of creatures.
Take a weekend break from the hustle and bustle or come and stay for a week or two; let Exmoor work its magic on you. Please look at our other pages for more photos and details of all we can offer.
COUPLES GET AWAY
Book more than one cottage for family, holidays or occasions. We can sleep over 18 people - plus more room for cots.
Our idyllic and wild location is perfect for getting away from it all and spending quality time together.
After much agonising we have reluctantly concluded that it would be socially irresponsible, both for the welfare of potential guests and our local community, to accept any new bookings until the end of May; this date being kept under constant review in line with unfolding developments. Exceptions will be made for everybody who has already made a full recovery from Coronavirus and are now immune.
24/3/20 - in line with the very latest Government guidance all bookings made before Coronavirus became an issue which we were scheduled to host from now until the week after Easter have been cancelled. Similar action will be taken on a rolling weekly basis until such time as the situation improves.
Guests who have pre-booked and are due to stay with effect from 24/4 onwards are currently most welcome to do so providing no Coronavirus symptoms are apparent before arrival.
Please be reassured that cottage cleaning has always been a high priority for us and any additional guidance in accordance with Government health recommendations will be followed.
Any guests who have already booked directly with us and wish to cancel will be either offered alternative dates or a full refund in the event that insurance cover was not taken out by them.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience that this decision may cause.
Keep safe - Irene & Peter Larcombe.
