Key Contact Information


Holworthy Farmhouse has 5 rooms, all en-suite, with stunning views of Wimbleball Lake and the rolling hills of Exmoor. Part of the farmhouse is over 200 years old with an extension added 25 years ago which has a delightful dining room overlooking the garden and a conservatory for guests to relax in. The guests cosy sitting room is in the old part of the house and has a log burner which is lit in the evenings.

Wimbleball Lake is a short walk down a private lane which is ideal for fishermen or walkers and a stroll after dinner. Dinner is optional with prior notice and on warm summers evenings coffee is served in the garden.
