Combe Martin cottage description

Old Dairy

A beautiful period barn conversion that has been sympathetically converted to provide a tasteful and unique holiday home. Old Dairy has retained many original features and has high quality furniture, kitchens and bathrooms that are in keeping with the age of the property. Park Mill has also recently featured in The Sunday Times 'Britain's Cosiest Christmasses'.

Original beamed, vaulted ceilings with galleried features create a light, airy and spacious feeling whilst ‘wood burning’ stoves in each cottage also make them an appealing rural retreat for cosy winter breaks.

For larger groups, all of the Park Mill Farm Cottages can be booked together to sleep 18.


Exmoor has long been recognised as having dark night skies, a valued attribute of the rural character and tranquillity of the area. Exmoor National Park has been designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first place in Europe to achieve this prestigious award and only the second in the world. On a clear night, the night sky of Exmoor is simply stunning when many astronomical sights can be seen through the naked eye and even more can be discovered through a telescope or binoculars.

Fishing at Park Mill Farm

"This is an accommodating little river in a lovely Devon valley where time really does seem to stand still." Mike Weaver, Trout And Salmon magazine, Feb. 2009.

There are two rivers (The Little Dart and The Huntacott) running through the property and a private fishing lake where guests can enjoy free fly and coarse fishing and catch Brown Trout, Rudd, Chubb, Roach, Tench and Carp. There is also complimentary fishing in the rivers where Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon can be caught together with Course fish.

On site at Park Mill Farm

The Park Mill Farm cottages are situated in a magical riverside setting, less than a mile from Chulmleigh centre, with 20 acres of lush fields, woods and parkland where you are free to roam along with the abundant wildlife. From the viewing area on top of the hill with bench, to the river and lakeside areas, there is plenty to explore and find a perfect picnic spot. There are benches throughout the site.

There is a communal barbecue area with tools provided, a summer house with books, DVD’s area information, a payphone and even wellies!

In 2010, Park Mill was featured in The Sunday Times 'Britain's Cosiest Christmases' feature.

Superbly appointed cottages

All cottages have natural slate flagstones throughout ground floors while the upper floors all have solid oak flooring. All doors and window frames are attractive solid timber and many windows have deep window seats and most look out over fields and farmlands.

Under floor heating and hot water is provided by a ‘ground source heat pump’, an eco friendly “green” system. Waste water is cleansed and disposed of through a special water treatment plant.

Each cottage has a working fire and bags of wood can be purchased locally.

Internet access is also available for a small charge on a weekly, daily or hourly basis.

Please note: there is one travel cot and high chair shared between the five Mill Park Farm properties. Please ensure bed arrangements are confirmed at time of booking.
