Where you’ll be

Burrington, England, United Kingdom

The peace and the views are wonderful.

Perched more than 450ft above the Taw valley, Hill Farm occupies an ancient east facing site sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds.

Looking east across the valley the view takes in a sizeable chunk of this part of north Devon. Immediately below the cottages with the deep wooded valley of the river Taw which starts its journey some 25 miles due south, high up in the centre of Dartmoor. The valley is also home to A377, formerly the main road linking north and south Devon. Every so often you will hear and catch a glimpse of the two or sometimes just one carriage Tarka line train or rail bus clattering past on its Barnstaple – Exeter journey.

Across the valley is the glorious Head wood, and beyond that the winding valley of the Moll – a river with an Exmoor source, and which the B3226 follows down from South Molton.
Looking down to the right you can just make out Junction pool where the Moll joins the Taw.

The village with it’s church steeple clearly visible beyond the hill of the Moll valley is Kings Nympton, about 3 miles away. Looking, left (north) and a similar distance away on another hill top is Chittlehamholt. Between these two and in the far distance is Exmoor and it’s second highest point - 5 barrows down (also called Spanhead) more than 16,000 ft up and some 13 miles away.

Throughout the centuries the farm was an important one and home to significant local families. The current farmhouse was originally thatched but at the beginning of the last century suffered a fire where many of the internal features were lost.

The cottage is surrounded by farmland. The area is criss-crossed by footpaths and bridleways. The local pub is a one mile walk from the cottage.

I'm Effie, I've been hosting for several years now and moved to hosting on Airbnb a year ago. I was born and have lived just outside London my entire life and work in the city, so if you want any recommendations just ask! My family is from Devon originally so I spent most of my childhood holidaying down there and enjoy the slower pace and beautiful countryside, a great place to get away!
