Pickwell Barton Farm Holidays

Award winning North Devon self catering Cottage


The Cottage, the old Coachmen’s accommodation has vistas that change with the seasons. Located Between Woolacombe and Croyde, on the beautiful North Devon coast, nestling into the hill above Putsborough beach. It’s an ideal location for short breaks or a summer holiday. The surrounding environment naturally relaxes you. Just walking along the beaches, ending up in a lovely pub garden for some delicious food, playing games in your cottage or the games room, alternatively just just relax in the beautiful garden listening to the bird song, Pickwell Barton is the ideal getaway. 

"Thank you so much Jane, once again we have had a wonderful holiday at Pickwell Barton. Quiet and so peaceful - we felt at home. Everything was spotlessly clean. The children loved the farm and the beautiful walk to Putsborough beach from the cottage. The FREE parking was great too for mum & dad who didn't always feel like the walk! Can't wait to return in 2023! Thank you" xx. April 2022

The natural environment enables us to connect with ourselves and each other.

With every outdoor activity at your fingertips it is the perfect location to explore, relax and simply enjoy life as it should be lived.

Jane and Andrew’s family have farmed in this stunning location for over 100 years, bringing a very personal touch to any visit. This has been recognised by the AA and Visit England when they were awarded the prestigious “Gold” award for service. Only awarded to the top 5% of businesses that truly go the extra mile for their guests.

A very special place, our working sheep and arable farm is run by the family, perched on the edge of Woolacombe, North Devon. We think it’s the most beautiful place in the world.

Your pERfect FARM STAY...

Spring is in the air – Down on the Farm. 
It’s a busy time of the year down on the farm.  Our 500 sheep are giving birth to their lambs during March.  It’s when all hands are on deck to help.  At Pickwell Barton all the sheep come indoors to give birth.  After Approximately 4 days, mum and their babies are taken out in the tractor and link box and put into the fields overlooking Putsborough and Woolacombe Beach.  They go into small fields with about 20 or so other sheep, this enables them to find their mums easier.  It’s very important that we help the sheep take great care of their little lambs and protect them from prey and the elements of the weather.  Lambs don’t like it wet and cold.  The sheep are fed on sheep cake and hay, this helps them to produce milk for their lambs.  Like us they are looking forward to warmer weather. The is shining, the daffodils, snowdrops and primroses are all making an appearance here on the North Devon Coast.  Our cattle are all warm in their sheds too at this time of year.
