    "We had a fabulous family holiday there and would love to go back"
    Jamie Lee ‐ 28 Dec 2019
    "A lovely place especially for Christmas! 8 people and 2 dogs were very comfortable with lots of room and recliner seating! Pool table and hot tub defo thumbs up and kept us entertained Small tv and no bin bags were our only complaint (if you can call that a complaint lol) Not much around but definitely set some adventures; which is what we wanted! Definitely worth the views and space for such a large party! The wood fire took us all back (even the teens got ago) and became pro’s with using the aga (though the electric oven did get used too!) all rounder! Very glad we found woolhanger and would be happy to stay again!"

    "Beautiful place with enough space e for everyone. Great facilities with games room, tennis court and of course the hot tub. Lovely area for a stroll around the gardens/lake.Highly recommend."
    Louise ‐ 12 Nov 2019
    "We had an amazing time at this beautiful farm house, it accommodated us all from age 13 through to 78 and 2 dogs. felt very at home and loved the indoor hot tub and sauna.Would look to go back again.Thank you Woolhanger"
    Richard ‐ 25 Oct 2019
    "Spacious and flexible accommodation for up to 12 people. Very comfortable and well equipped with lovely grounds. This was our second visit."
    Claire ‐ 8 Oct 2019
    "Great cottage for a large group, plenty of space and lots of things to do including the hot tub, sauna, games room and tennis court."
    CHRISTOPHER ‐ 20 Aug 2019
    "Farmhouse was looking a bit tired inside and could do with a redecoration there was plenty of equipment for us to use. On a couple of occasions there was dog mess in the garden where the children played from the farm dogs. Fuse for the living room and two of the bedroom kept tripping out. We worked out that we needed to turn off heated tail rails then all was ok."
    Anne ‐ 20 Aug 2019
    "Spacious accommodation with everything you could possibly need.Quiet, isolated location. Near to Lynton but a 30 minute drive from Woolacombe"
    Claire ‐ 3 Aug 2019
    "Great house overall. 12 of us stayed here for a week. Although we were far out from the local shops/beaches, it was lovely and quiet. The hot tub was amazing, wish we had booked for 2 weeks. Definitely recommend"
    Lynn ‐ 17 Jul 2019
    "This is the perfect place for getting away from it all and relaxing with family and friends. There is plenty of space and lots to do. All the people we met from the estate were friendly and helpful When the gas bottle for the BBQ ran out it was replaced immediately with no fuss. We would definitely recommend this house for a larger group"

    "Fabulous place in a lovely location. Great place to celebrate a get together. Nice and large. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay."
    Tony ‐ 5 Jun 2019
    "The accommodation was spacious, well equipped and pleasant. The amenities (large garden, tennis court, spa bath, sauna, BBQ) were excellent. The position -2/3 miles from the coast - was good. We had a couple of gripes: the last 400 metres of unmade road to the house is very rough and heavily rutted. My car bottomed on a couple of occasions and unless it is improved, it would put us off visiting again. Also, we arrived as required after 4.00pm on Friday. The accommodation was left open with keys left inside.The estate office is open mornings only on weekdays, but was closed on the following Monday due to a bank holiday; so there was no-one we could speak to until the Tuesday over a couple of queries we had. There was an out of hours phone number, but messages were not answered. There should at least be a 'meet and greet' service."

    "Woolhanger Farmhouse had everything for our group 30th birthday celebrations! The house and adjoining annex are enormous and have everything required to house 12 people comfortably. The sauna and hot tub were absolutely fantastic. Contrary to our skepticism, the hot tub was ginormous and easily seated 8 of us, with definite room for more! The only negative here is that these facilities are only accessible until 9pm, but I can understand that the owners want to keep disruption to a minimum, as it's a beautifully tranquil spot that could easily be ruined by a rowdier party.One thing to note would be that the storage heaters in the annex were all set to off when we arrived, which we didn't realise until we went to bed in the early hours of the morning. If this was highlighted on arrival, it would have avoided the temporary discomfort of warming up a rather chilly bedroom!Other than that, the house is located very close (10-15min drive) to the quaint towns or Lynton and Lynmouth with coffee shops, souvenirs, delicious pasties/fudge and a beautiful coastal walk along the SW Coastal Path (and the funicular railway between the towns if you are so inclined), which was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip for the entire group."

    "We had an amazing Easter weekend at the Farmhouse to celebrate our daughter's 21st, very much helped by the beautiful weather we were lucky to be blessed with! The house itself was perfect, very clean, very comfortable, almost everything we needed! The only reason for the loss of a mark on comfort & equipment was because the large American style fridge freezer was out of order and it was very difficult to fit all our our food and drink in the small fridge that was in the kitchen - we had to use the fridge in the annex as well, which was not always convenient! The garden was fantastic and the dogs had a great time chasing a ball up and down. The hot tub and sauna were also very nice and we wish we could have used these more but as the weather was so outstanding we had to be out and about!! Beds were super comfy, bathrooms very clean - only one slight problem was a lack of hot water about 5pm after a couple of showers there wasn't enough for any more. The annex was perfect for the birthday girl and her partner being completely self contained. We absolutely loved the local area, especially Woolacombe beach and would highly recommend a trip to Hele Corn Mill Tea Room. All in all we had an amazing stay at Woolhanger and would have no hesitation in recommending. We just wish we could have stayed longer. One final thing - thank you so much for the 'welcome pack' - it was much appreciated :)"

    "lovely accommodation,beautiful gardens and amenities, the aga was brilliant we did lots of cooking on it and I wish I had one of these in my kitchen! beds were so comfy had amazing sleep did not wake up once from slumber which is not the case at home (noted the mattress brand and will get the same for my bed). The spa room was again fabulous and well maintained, we didnt use it as much as we would have liked to simply because it was cold outside. The house was nice and cosy for the 12 of us, shame the tv in the big living room was tiny had to huddle on one side to watch it, could invest in a bigger TV would make a lot of difference to the overall viewing for all. The games room was a hit with the kids and they spent most evenings playing pool or on the wii. Shame the big fridge freezer was broken on arrival, the replacement smaller fridge space was far too tiny for our shopping and any cooked food soon went off in the hot kitchen as there was no space to store it in the small fridge. Freezer space was plenty, but we did have a lot of expensive wastage considering we are a party of 12, the fridge aspect should have been better considered, the repairman did arrive 5 days into the trip to fix the big fridge but we had left on day 6 so no point really. The cleanliness of the place was a let down, one toilet was filthy and had clearly not been touched for a while, my 13 year old put on rubber gloves and cleaned it which he would never normally do but it was not something we could ignore.Overall, despite the oversights, the accommodation was lovely and the gardens were stunning, tennis courts kept the kids busy seeing as the nearest decent beach ie. woolacombe and Tescos was over 40 minutes away and the weather didn't pick up until the end of our trip. good value for money nevertheless."

    "Well equipped kitchen, lovely jacuzzi, enjoyed the beaches nearby and the walking trails. All rooms were warm and comfortable. We loved our stay!"
    Sophie ‐ 27 Mar 2019
    "Woolhanger Farmhouse was amazing, better than expected and everything we needed for a weekend away. It was so spacious, clean & tidy and the hot tub is a great addition!"
    Sue ‐ 6 Mar 2019
    "Woolhanger farmhouse is a spacious, light and airy property with many appealing features. We enjoyed having the sauna and jacuzzi just outside the property and loved the location. We were able to walk straight from the door to Exmoor and the coast path. If you are holidaying with family and friends it is ideal as the space allows all to spread out and not feel on top of one another.We also appreciated the generous welcome pack which included two bottles of wine, ham, cheese, scones, jam, butter and clotted cream. All in all, it was a delightful break in a picturesque part of the country."
    Julie ‐ 26 Feb 2019
    "Wonderful weekend with friends. Beautifully presented and equipped accommodation with plenty of bathrooms, even though only one eu suite. Comfy seat for all 12 of us around the fire. Beautiful surroundings for a stroll. We did not leave the place all weekend. We were lucky to have a sunny weekend, so enjoyed the garden, hot tub etc. Perfect for a celebration when Wales beat England at rugby?. Would love to return!! We took advantage of having an order delivered with Sainsburys, which made it all more relaxed. Such fabulous countryside in every direction, but lovely seaside towns on the doorstep too!"
    Julia ‐ 20 Nov 2018
    "12 of us had a comfortable and cosy weekend in a very high quality residence. There is enough seating for everyone around the large farmhouse dining table and enough seats for everyone to sit comfortably in the lounge. Beds were comfy and cosy, bathrooms modern and clean, kitchen suitable for catering for large parties. We used all the facilities (all equipment is provided) tennis court, the jacuzzi and sauna and the table football, table tennis and pool table. The back lawn was a wonderful place to play with our dogs. We loved the peace and quiet, and the space to share birthday celebrations. The beach at Woolacombe was worth the 30 minute journey. The surrounding countryside was spectacular in the last flush of Autumn. Small shop nearby but we had a Sainsbury’s supermarket delivery on the first evening to save bringing all our groceries and although it was the driver’s first visit to the propery he found it in the dark. All of us agreed we would love to go back."
