A self-catering farm holiday cottage in Devon, situated within easy reach of Dartmoor, the Tarka Trail and the North Devon and Cornwall coasts.

Fishleigh Farm and The Holiday Cottage

Set in the heart of Ruby Country, Fishleigh Farm lies along a track on the edge of Black Torrington village, only half a mile from the much-acclaimed Black River Inn.
There are spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, sunsets, sunrises and the occasional rainbow. This part of Devon has some of the darkest night skies in the UK and is perfect for star gazing.

The Old Dairy holiday cottage has been tastefully converted from a shippen, with a vaulted ceiling, and decorated in a homely country style, as it is located at the heart of a working farm, you will have wildlife and farm-life quite literally on your doorstep, but to provide you with your own outdoor space away from the working areas of the farm, the cottage has its own enclosed sunny garden with a grassy area and patio, with table and chairs for alfresco meals.

Staying Here

On your arrival there will be a welcome basket, to include bread, milk, butter, homemade preserves and fresh eggs from our hens – and of course tea, coffee and sugar.

The front door leads straight into the large living room with a dining area, sofa, easy chairs and TV. Patio doors lead into the garden. From the living room you step up into the well-equipped kitchen, which includes a full range of appliances, stainless steel sinks and a table and chairs.

The double bedroom with en-suite shower room is off the other end of the living room. A wardrobe and chest of drawers provide plenty of storage space, and there is a small child’s bed set neatly into an alcove. A further fold-up bed is also available – making The Old Dairy suitable for up to four people, with a maximum of three adults.

There is ample space just inside the front door for hanging outdoor coats, wellies and walking boots – essential holiday items, even in sunny Devon!
Whatever the weather, the cottage is kept cosy by easy-to-control programmable electric radiators.

The Old Dairy at Fishleigh Farm

By Terence Sherringtn on 12-Jul-2022

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at The Old Dairy Fishleigh Farm. The accommodation is delightful; well equipped and very comfortable. The rural setting is wonderful with only country sounds and no night time light pollution. We would recommend The Old Dairy to anyone who is looking for a quiet Idyll for a short or longer holiday.

A lovely short break

By Jenny Clifford on 16-Apr-2022

We have just returned from a lovely short break at the old dairy. We would highly recommend for a couple or small family. Our daughter loved the farm animals, close enough to enjoy beaches and an immaculately clean and tidy cottage. Thank you so much, we hope to return soon!

Our Second Visit

By Stuart Suffell on 30-Dec-2021

Our second visit to this beautiful and peaceful place. I am celebrating my 60th birthday and couldn''t think of a better place to be. A beautifully appointed self contained little home from home. The hosts are fantastic and make sure you have a lovely stay. I can sum it up as immaculate comfortable and peaceful.
