Mornacott Estate and Cottages

Key Contact Information


Three beautiful 4 and 5 Star Gold rated holiday cottages set within a scenic and tranquil farming estate located on the edge of Exmoor.

Today Mornacott looks much as it would have done in its heyday in the 17th Century benefiting from the fabulous views stretching from Exmoor to Dartmoor, classic North Devon plunging valleys and lush natural pastures in the most tranquil of settings yet conveniently close to the A361 North Devon Link Road.

Completed in 2013 four of Mornacott’s redundant farm buildings were restructured to form the three holiday cottages and the entertaining barn that we have today. Further enhancement came in 2014 with a luxurious 13 metre indoor pool and sauna complemented by a fully equipped games room.

Each cottage benefits from vaulted oak beamed ceilings with oak floors, staircases and joinery in keeping with the traditional nature of Mornacott and no expense has been spared on the works that have served to make Orchard Cottage, Barn Cottage and The Old Stables amongst the most luxurious available.

Tastefully furnished with solid oak furniture and quality soft furnishings the cottages have the feel of the perfect home from home.

And whilst some come to Mornacott to simply unwind and get away from it all there are a plethora of activities to make your stay enjoyable and interesting.

Many choose to explore the wide open spaces of Exmoor National Park and the beautiful North Devon coastline with its glorious beaches and holiday activities but others welcome the opportunity to walk the varied routes available over Mornacott’s 800 acres and fish in the private river or lake onsite. Clay shooting is available locally and, particularly popular with children, are our evening “safaris” which help young people understand the countryside in an exciting and inclusive environment.

At appropriate times during the year we can arrange “camera stalking” for the herd of red deer that roam amongst the woodland at Mornacott and complement the abundance of wildlife in this wonderful area of the country.

“Foodies” too will not be disappointed and we are usually able to offer packs of our own Ruby Red Devon beef for barbecuing and to take home at the end of your stay in addition to game and other meat in season.
