Rural romance at Holwell Farmhouse

Article Published: Friday 17th June, 2022 - 11:28am

Set amidst 65 acres of picture-perfect Devon farmland close to Exmoor National Park, Holwell Farmhouse is a beautifully restored Grade II listed retreat. The historic meadows are roamed by ewes, horses and a farm cat all year round, and during the winter months, the farm is home to 40 wild red deer who arrive annually to seek refuge. Offering rural escapism and romance in equal measure, it is a dream venue for nature-loving couples.

Owner Ollie Greenslade has sensitively renovated the farmhouse to incorporate historic features with modern comforts. Accommodating between 11 and 16 guests, all bedrooms enjoy en suite facilities and come with soft furnishings to provide a home-from-home feel.
