Smithincott Barton Farm Holidays
A smallholding nestled in beautiful Devon countryside with three holiday cottages
Smithincott Barton is a historic farmstead originally dating back to the time of the Doomesday Book. The two one bedroom lets, the Loft and the Old Stable, are in a converted Grade II listed farm building. The Linhay is a 17th Century listed thatched cottage, attached to the main farmhouse.
The cottages are all dog friendly and have been lovingly restored and equipped to a high standard. They are decorated and furnished with antiques, vintage signs and contemporary artwork. Perfect as a base for touring, or for a comfortable break doing not a lot.
We’re in the perfect position – peaceful and quiet, yet just five minutes from the M5 and in easy reach of both the South and North coasts, Dartmoor and Exmoor, as well as the cities of Exeter, Bath and Bristol.
Anna & Alasdair moved from West Sussex in 2018 with the aim of providing farm holiday accommodation equipped and decorated as we like it. Comfortable and stylish but not boring!
Dogs are welcome

Walking and Relaxing
Some of the most amazing countryside the UK has to offer is within an easy drive. Dartmoor, Exmoor and the beautiful Quantock Hills are half an hour away. The Blackdown Hills, the Jurassic Coast, Cheddar Gorge, South Hams and many others are easily accessible.
Go to the beach
Fancy an afternoon or day on the beach? Nearest sandy beach is 30 minutes away at Exmouth. On the South Coast we have Lyme Regis, Beer, Branscombe, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth. On the North Coast we’d recommend the stunning Saunton Sands, where you can also learn to surf!
Towns and Cities
Fancy a day out sightseeing or shopping? Our nearest city is Exeter which has numerous attractions with good shops and restaurants. Glastonbury and Wells are both well worth a visit, and going slightly further afield, both Bath and Bristol make for a great day out. To the South, Plymouth and Dartmouth are also in easy reach and the town of Totnes has plenty of quirky shops and historic buildings.
Have Fun or bit of Culture
Lots to do
From family visits to a theme park to visiting a National Trust property, Devon has it all. Locally you can try gliding, skydiving or flying, ballooning, go quad biking or go cart racing. The Westcountry Land Rover Experience is nearby. Why not take a sightseeing cruise from Exmouth or go on a fishing trip at Lyme Regis. Hire a canoe in Exeter, or take a trip on the Tiverton Canal. The list is endless.
