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.
In line with Government guidance our cottages we've re-opened to guests from one household on Monday 12th April. Further relaxations in Covid-19 rules are scheduled for Monday 17th May at which time we hope to offer the opportunity of occupation by guests from two households.
Any guests who make a reservation but are subsequently unable to honour their commitment due to Coronavirus issues will have no financial obligation whatsoever. Additionally, any deposits which may have been paid at the outset will be fully refunded.
We wish all past and future guests continued good health. As for us, we are both still casting shadows at West Hollowcombe and very much hope that you will have an opportunity to do likewise, sooner rather than later.
