Welcome to Robin Hill Farm Cottages.

Bring family and friends: choose your cottage (maybe combine with another); explore the wildflowers and wildlife around our grounds, pasture and stream lined wood; play or sit outdoors and make new friends; swim or soak in our indoor pool; star-gaze the dark night skies.

In days gone by, when Robin Hill Farm Cottages was a small holding, Gull Cottage was first the milking barn and then stables before being transformed into an ‘up-side down’ holiday cottage with first floor open plan living space, lit by Velux windows set between exposed roof trusses. This characterful history is clear to see in its exposed stone walls and beams.

Approached via a short flight of original brick steps, this cottage has a raised west facing fully enclosed garden with spectacular views over Jennetts Reservoir towards Exmoor.

Family friendly or suitable for friends, it comfortably sleeps 6 in double, twin and bunk bedrooms plus cot space and the bathroom has bath over shower. The 12 seater expanding dining table makes Gull Cottage, which adjoins Puffin Cottage, the ideal focal point for hosting a multiple cottage holiday. This is a dog friendly cottage with space for two dogs.

In all there are six cottages here plus shared leisure facilities on site (Gull; Three that sleep 4 - two of those are dog friendly; and Two more that sleep 6). Available in 2021 : heated indoor pool with private swims; outdoor play; laundry and 14 acres of tranquil nature filled pasture and woodland to explore whether on two legs or four paws.

We are situated 3 miles outside Bideford Town facilities and only 4 miles from the coast and Blue Flag beach at Westward Ho! Nearby are the heritage sites of Clovelly, Hartland Abbey and Gardens at RHS Rosemoor, Marwood Hill and Tapeley Park. The Coast Path or Tarka Trail Cycle Path are easily accessible and there are many options for adrenaline junkies from Wake Boarding, High Ropes, Paint balling, Coasteering, Abseiling and Rock Climbing to Sea Kayaking and Surfing. Fun places to visit include The Big Sheep, Milky Way, Exmoor Zoo and the very special Gnome Reserve. North Devon has a vibrant food offering in family run cafes, pubs and restaurants, most are dog friendly.

Another peaceful break

By Betty Mabel on 05-May-2021

"Another great stay at Gull cottage. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed returning here and we were lucky with great weather. The dog couldn't believe her luck when she got out the car and realised she was back in her holiday field!! Plenty to do in the area but always topped of with a dip in the pool and a chill out in the cottage or garden. Lovely to watch all the birds nesting right outside our window and we also spotted pheasants and roe deer during our drive up to the cottage! Happy kids and dog made for a very relaxing stay, we hope to return next year."

Lovely relaxing stay

By BettyMabel on 03-Nov-2020

"We stayed in Gull cottage with our family and dog. A much needed break just before lockdown take 2! Excellent communication from the owners prior to our arrival. A few facilities were closed due to covid, but this did not detract from a lovely stay. Our children loved using the pool which was nice and warm. Really appreciated use of the field to walk our dog every morning. The site is really peaceful and quiet and a 15 min drive from Appledore, Instow and Westward Ho! Went for a gorgeous roast dinner at the Coach and Horses pub, recommended on the Robin Hill website. We have booked to return in the Spring when hopefully the weather is a bit brighter! Already looking forward to going back."
