About & Contact

A stunning, all en suite, converted stable block

A superb 5* conversion with top quality soft furnishings and solid oak furniture with original oak beams and vaulted ceilings.

Formerly the stable block that housed the three horses that worked the farm prior to the arrival of the first tractors, The Old Stables sits within the farmstead and benefits from glorious country views and a private sun trap terrace.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a large open plan living space, a dining area and kitchen/breakfast area. A separate W.C. is located off the main living area. The ground floor benefits from underfloor heating throughout. A widescreen television, with separate DVD player, complements the main seating area.

The first floor, accessed by an open tread oak staircase, comprises three bedrooms two with en suite bathrooms (with powerful showers over the baths) and one with an en suite shower room. All have washbasins and W.C's.

One bedroom upstairs has a king-size bed with the others having the flexibility of zip and link type beds allowing for two singles or a double to suit.

The kitchen is equipped with a large electric range cooker, American style fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave.

Outside there is a large fenced terrace with a seating area and barbecue.

And whilst many come to Mornacott to simply unwind and get away from it all there are a plethora of activities to make your stay enjoyable and interesting.

Many choose to explore the wide open spaces of Exmoor National Park and the beautiful North Devon coastline with its glorious beaches and holiday activities but others welcome the opportunity to walk the varied routes available at Mornacott and fish in the private river or lake onsite.

Clay target shooting is available locally and, particularly popular with children, are the opportunities to see and feed livestock and our evening “safaris” which help young people understand the countryside in an exciting and inclusive environment.

At appropriate times during the year we can arrange 'camera stalking' for the herd of red deer that roam amongst the woodland at Mornacott and complement the huge abundance of wildlife in this wonderful area of the country.

'Foodies' too will not be disappointed and we are usually able to offer packs of our own Ruby Red Devon beef for barbecuing and to take home at the end of your stay in addition to game and other meat in season.

Reviews for Mornacott Cottages

Upfront Reviews logo

Meet the owner

Andrew Blowers/Dawn Blowers

Andrew and Dawn Blowers 'escaped' to Devon in 2007. After much searching they fell in love with Mornacott and set about restoring the old and run-down buildings that comprised the farm and wider estate. Their choice of North Devon was predicated on their love of Exmoor and this beautiful area where they had holidayed for many years. This, of course, influenced Dawn’s desire 'to do it better' and years of seeing things through the eyes of the customer prompted both the layout of the cottages and the service and facilities provided. Mornacott is now the family base with their youngest at boarding school and the older 'children' working in South Molton and serving in the Army respectively. Assisted by Charles Owen the Estate Manager, Carol Luxton looking after guest services and Dave Snow keeping everything spic and span the team aims to ensure that the Mornacott 'experience' is second to none.
