If you were looking for cottages like Affeton Barton, how about trying these:

Hidden deep in the truly peaceful, unspoilt north Devon countryside, in the grounds of an historic castle, lies Affeton Barton; a 16th Century farmhouse, newly renovated to a very high standard.

It is spacious, welcoming and dog-friendly, and will provide a holiday to remember forever. Affeton Barton has its own large dedicated garden, but guests are warmly invited to use the tennis court, the open-air seasonal swimming pool, and explore and enjoy the beautiful castle grounds.

As you would expect in a traditional property like this, there is a large farmhouse kitchen, with all mod-cons yet great character, and a sitting-room, with a wood-burner, at the heart of the house. It also offers four very comfortable bedrooms, with a choice of super-king or twin beds, and each with a selection of antique furniture. There are brand new contemporary bathrooms, and the most welcoming atmosphere throughout.

Generations of children have grown up here, with the freedom to roam the estate's woodlands, the river at the foot of the valley, and the footpaths and bridleways. We hope that guests will make the most of this very special setting! Please do keep children and dogs with you at all times, and with the livestock in mind, so that you enjoy exploring safely. The swimming pool is available in June, July and August, but please note it is not heated, so you may choose to bring wetsuits with you!

The owners live in the castle but you will feel as if this majestic place is all your own.
