 Libbear Barton Availability

Award Winning Family Friendly
Self-Catering Accommodation in Devon!

Stepping into the pages of The Wind in the Willows



Set in forty acres of North Devon’s picturesque rolling hills, Harvest Holidays at Libbear Barton is an award winning country estate, consisting of a beautiful Georgian farmhouse and three charming self-catering cottages. In the middle of nowhere and in the middle of everywhere, Libbear Barton is within easy reach of some of the loveliest beaches of the North Devon and Cornwall coastlines as well as the wild beauty of Dartmoor and with countless family attractions in between.

But there is much more to Libbear Barton than that! You will find yourself stepping right into the pages of The Wind in the Willows. The farmhouse and cottages are surrounded by fields, walks, a 5 acre wood and a fishing lake. There are ducks and geese, swallows and house martins, you will no doubt find hedgehogs and moles and at sunset you are likely to catch a glimpse of the graceful red deer in the woods.  But that’s not all.  Without needing to get in the car, you can enjoy the heated swimming pool, playground, games room, sauna and gym – perfect for all the family.

Libbear Barton is also perfect if you're thinking of a large celebration for a special birthday or anniversary. We have converted The Stables into an attractive, beamed  events room where groups can meet and eat and celebrate together. 

Toad Hall sleeps up to 14 in seven bedrooms, whilst the cottages each have four double or twin bedrooms. Each is individually furnished and has its own character. Otter's Den offers open-plan living, Badger's House provides spacious rooms upstairs and down, Mole End is cosy while offering a large, well-equipped kitchen/dining room for up to 8 people. As for Toad Hall - the impressive farmhouse - well, you'll feel like you are Lord & Lady of the Manor!  Each has its own garden with barbecue, trampoline and sand pit as well as ample parking.

On site, there is a large heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, games room, soft play area, adventure playground, a well-equipped gym, DVD library, 5 acres of delightful woodland, badgers’ hide, meadows and orchard. There are barbecues placed throughout the grounds for our guests to enjoy.

There is also a large fishing lake, perfect for fly fishing. Trout of 8lb+ have been caught!  If however you do not catch a fish for your tea, you need go no further than the local villages for excellent pub restaurants.

Open all year round, Harvest Holidays at Libbear Barton  is privately owned and run by a welcoming family friendly team. They know just what parents need for a relaxing break and are there to help without being in your way.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family and friends to a wonderful holiday filled with fun as well as relaxation in beautiful surroundings.


Something for everyone...

Don't just take our word for it

Celebrations & Events

Here at Harvest Holidays, we've hosted a number of special celebrations from Ruby Wedding Anniversaries to big birthdays. Libbear Barton is ideal as all your guests can stay in the one place and there is no need to worry about driving. You may also like to consider it for your church getaway or boardroom retreat.

The Young Ones

We know that families with younger children need a holiday too and we remember what it was like to have to pack the vast array of equipment needed for the little ones. So we decided to make Harvest Holidays one of the top family-friendly facilities in the UK, by providing all the equipment you need, making your holiday truly a home from home. We provide strollers (with parasols, rain covers & cosy toes), high chairs, sterilising equipment, cots, play pens, stair gates and a range of other infant equipment needed to ensure that everyone has a wonderful holiday, including mum and dad! We continuously add more toys and equipment and have recently added a selection of trainer bikes, a selection of helmets & pads, and a brand new DVD library!

We're proud of our holiday cottages, and we think there is no better way of showing you this than letting our past guests tell you of their experiences at our cottages.

"We spent a wonderful week in Badger’s House with three generations of the same family – ages ranging from 18 months to 62! The owners have equipped the house with everything you could possibly need for babies and small children. All you need to bring are nappies and food!”

"Toys, cots, highchairs, playpen, changing mats, stair gates, sterilizing equipment, child friendly cutlery, plates, cups etc. and even buggies are provided. In spite of this we did not feel we were holidaying in a branch of Mothercare!”

"The garden is very safe with a sandpit and a trampoline which our 4 year old granddaughter thought was brilliant. The house was very comfortable and catered for all age groups."
