Corn Dolly Farmhouse is a beautiful thatched countryside three bedroom farmhouse, that has been sympathetically renovated to retain many of its original period features but has been thoughtfully furnished throughout to offer guests high quality self-catering accommodation in a wonderful tranquil rural setting.
Comfortably sleeping six guests, this spacious dog friendly and family friendly self catering holiday let is surrounded by a stunning landscape with acres of fields, rolling hills and meadows and a mature woodland. It really is ideal for anyone looking to wake up to beautiful countryside and experience a ‘home-from-home’ getaway in a very peaceful and tranquil location. However, if they fancy a day out at the beach or a day at the shops or wish to explore the wilds of the National Park, then the North Devon coastline, the city of Exeter and the rugged wilderness of Exmoor are all within an hours’ drive.
Throughout the farmhouse, there is plenty of original features including exposed wooden beams, flagstone floors, decorative and large inglenook fireplaces.
You enter the cottage from the main courtyard into a lovely entrance hallway, where coats and boots can be stored towards the back. To the left is a lovely open plan kitchen and dining area, which is well-equipped for everything guests could need on a self-catering holiday.
A large countryside table along with enough seating for six people provides the perfect space for gathering everyone together for leisurely breakfasts and relaxing family suppers. There is also a huge Inglenook fireplace, and a sofa provides a lovely space to relax with a quick cuppa or perhaps keep the cook company.
The kitchen is packed with all your cookware and crockery that you will need to enjoy a ‘stress-free’ and comfortable stay. Appliances include a dishwasher, electric oven with hob, and microwave. From the kitchen, there is a separate utility room home to a large fridge, large freezer, a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also an iron and ironing board. You can also access the outside of the cottage and the ground floor cloakroom.
Back through the kitchen, dining area and hallway, there is a charming living room, furnished with comfort in mind. There are two large comfy sofas, as well as a flat screen TV with a DVD player and a huge Inglenook fireplace with a wood-burner to provide the perfect space for gathering everyone together to relax and enjoy time together after enjoyable days out.
The first floor is accessed via a very steep staircase. All three well-presented bedrooms are on the first floor, along with the family bathroom and are accessed by a spacious first floor landing, that even has a large sofa with side table.
The first bedroom is a large twin bedroom with two full size single beds, a lovely room overlooking the front courtyard, with exposed beams and a decorative fireplace. Next, there is a family bathroom with a bath that has a hand held shower attachment, wash basin and WC. The second bedroom is another spacious twin room, with two full size single beds, a fitted wardrobe, exposed beams and floor boards, plus a comfortable leather arm chair. Finally, the master bedroom is a huge light and spacious double bedroom with a super king-sized bed, plenty of storage and an en-suite shower room. This double aspect bedroom enjoys both views of the courtyard, the garden and the countryside beyond.
Outside, the main courtyard at the front of the farmhouse provides ample parking spaces. Towards the rear of the property, there is a huge private garden that has been fenced off, a separate patio area with garden furniture, parasol and BBQ and a children’s play area.

Corn Dolly Farmhouse is situated in the very small village of Week that lies approximately 3.5 miles away from the small town of Chulmleigh on the edge of North Devon. It is surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside with some excellent walks right from the cottage doorstep. The larger town of Chulmleigh also benefits from many walking routes waiting to be explored, with some stunning unspoilt views and landscapes there to be enjoyed. Chulmleigh also boasts three excellent pubs, a golf course and an array of independent shops. The much larger town of South Molton is also only 6 miles away, with its fantastic choice of independent shops, a supermarket, a Mole Valley Farmers country store, cafes, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, and not forgetting its popular family attraction, Quince Honey Farm.
