Set in forty acres of North Devon’s picturesque rolling hills, Libbear Barton is an award winning country estate, consisting of a beautiful Georgian farmhouse and three charming self-catering cottages. In the middle of nowhere and in the middle of everywhere, Libbear Barton is within easy reach of some of the loveliest beaches of the North Devon and Cornwall coastlines as well as the wild beauty of Dartmoor and with countless family attractions in between.
But there is much more to Libbear Barton than that! You will find yourself stepping right into the pages of The Wind in the Willows. The farmhouse and cottages are surrounded by fields, walks, a 5 acre wood and a fishing lake. There are ducks and geese, swallows and house martins, you will no doubt find hedgehogs and moles and at sunset you are likely to catch a glimpse of the graceful red deer in the woods. But that’s not all. Without needing to get in the car, you can enjoy the heated swimming pool, playground, games room, sauna and gym – perfect for all the family.
Libbear Barton is also perfect if you're thinking of a large celebration for a special birthday or anniversary. We have converted The Stables into an attractive, beamed events room where groups can meet and eat and celebrate together.
Toad Hall sleeps up to 16 in seven bedrooms, whilst the cottages each have four double or twin bedrooms. Each is individually furnished and has its own character. Otter's Den offers open-plan living, Badger's House provides spacious rooms upstairs and down, Mole End is cosy while offering a large, well-equipped kitchen/dining room for up to 8 people. As for Toad Hall - the impressive farmhouse - well, you'll feel like you are Lord & Lady of the Manor! Each has its own garden with barbecue, trampoline and sand pit as well as ample parking.
On site, there is a large heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, games room, soft play area, adventure playground, a well-equipped gym, DVD library, 5 acres of delightful woodland, badgers’ hide, meadows and orchard. There are barbecues placed throughout the grounds for our guests to enjoy.
There is also a large fishing lake, perfect for fly fishing. Trout of 8lb+ have been caught! If however you do not catch a fish for your tea, you need go no further than the local villages for excellent pub restaurants.
Open all year round, Libbear Barton is privately owned and run by a welcoming family friendly team. They know just what parents need for a relaxing break and are there to help without being in your way.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family and friends to a wonderful holiday filled with fun as well as relaxation in beautiful surroundings.
