The Old Dairy

The Old Dairy
Holiday Cottage at Fishleigh Farm

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

Fishleigh Farm, Black Torrington

Set in the heart of Ruby Country, between Hatherleigh and Holsworthy, 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 Farm Holiday Cottage

The Old Dairy holiday cottage has been tastefully converted from a shippen, with a vaulted ceiling, and decorated in a homely country style.

Located at the heart of a working farm, you will have wildlife and farm-life quite literally on your doorstep.

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 at the Holiday Cottage

On your arrival at the holiday cottage 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 Holiday Cottage Living Room
A Bedroom in the Holiday Cottage

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.
