Coulscott is perfect for the whole family, with so much to see and do.

Our private estate has excellent facilities perfect for your dream family holiday in Devon; whether the kids want to take a dip in the heated indoor pool or burn off some steam in the sunshine on our large wooden outdoor play area, or you want to take the whole family on a relaxing stroll, or have some me time in our onsite Yoga class, we’ve got something for everyone.

Heated Indoor Pool and Hot Tubs

Magnificent heated to 30 C, indoor swimming pool,  at a safe, constant depth, with steps leading into the pool. Warm ambient air flow when you get in and out. Secure access. Non slip surrounds and lounge area to relax, on our smart new cradle rope weave seats or day bed. Pool building also has changing rooms, WCs and showers. There are private hot tubs for 4 of our houses (Coulscott House, Old Barn, Old Farmhouse and Georgian House) either on your private terrace or private deck. Heated to 38 C these are a magical treat, especially under our starlit sky (located on the edge of Exmoor’s Dark Sky Reserve) with superb views down the valley to the horizon! Just take the cover off and get on in!

The Grounds

Coulscott is set in its own little valley, with 16 acres of grounds to wander with lawns, gardens, sunken lanes, ponds, meadows, an orchard, streams (perfect for little dam-builders!) and astonishing far-reaching views. 

Coulscott has an extensive kitchen garden and greenhouse for you to pick yourself a little something to go with that alfresco lunch or cosy dinner.

There’s also 5 acres of dog walking field for off lead enjoyment and ball and stick chasing…

Games Room

Coulscott has a communal indoor games room equipped with table football and table tennis, perfect to keep the whole family entertained! There is also a dedicated under 5’s soft play area to keep your little ones content and safely contained.  Coulscott House/The Georgian House have a private games room with table tennis and darts.

Coulscott’s Animals

We have a lot of different animals (over 50 and counting!) and we love our guests to visit them. We run daily animal feeding time sessions during the week for you to help out feeding the animals and learn all about them. 

Our beautiful peacocks wander the grounds, when not nesting. Our free-range chickens, many of them rescue hens, supply Coulscott’s eggs and our cute call ducks and runner ducks live on our three ponds. We also have a small heard of alpacas many of which were born here, four pygmy goats and a fat, greedy, grunting, pig called Disraeli! Recently arrived are our guinea pigs, rabbits and our two lambs. Every spring we have baby lambs for you to bottle feed!

Outdoor Playground

Kids love our large wooden pirate ship complete with decks, tunnel, ships wheel, plank and large sand pit. Our 2-storey Wendy House is a little home makers dream come true, with built in kitchen and furniture and a veranda to serve their cream teas from. There is also a wooden tractor complete with slide, a  trampoline, swings, slides, and a climbing frame.  

Outdoor Dining

Each cottage has its own outside dining area – perfect for those al fresco moments, whether you want to enjoy a morning coffee on your terrace, a BBQ or a sundowner at the end of the day! Each property also has a Chimnea or fire pit.

We also have communal tables and chairs set up to enjoy the views from hidden spots around the grounds. You will also find a large 1.5 meter fire pit with benches for the whole family to sit around and make marshmallow memories!  

The Lookout

You will feel on top of the world looking out across North Devon as far as the eye can see.

Grab yourself some “me time” at The Lookout with some cocktails at sunset, an early morning meditation or yoga session or just curl up with a good book in the total peace and quiet.

A perfect spot to sit back, relax and soak up this stunning far reaching Coulscott valley view. 

Kitchen Garden

Coulscott has an extensive kitchen garden and greenhouse for you to pick yourself a little something to go with that alfresco lunch or cosy dinner.

We aim to have produce ready for most of the year and children will love learning about what we have growing, eating peas fresh from the pod and picking a fresh snack for our rabbits and guinea pigs!

 

Outdoor Games

Within Coulscott’s grounds there is a 5 a-side football pitch, a full size badminton court and games such as croquet, boules, clock golf, and cricket for you to play.

Yoga

Weekly Yoga classes run throughout the year on site and private 1:1 yoga, qigong, meditation, body & mind therapy and wellbeing coaching in your own property at Coulscott is available.

There is also an amazing deck called The Lookout perfect to practice on your own or 1 : 1 with our teacher situated high above Coulscott.

You can also join the fun weekly Aqua Aerobics session in our lovely heated indoor pool.

Fire Pit

The whole family will love cosying up around our giant fire pit – pick yourselves some marshmallows from our honesty shop and get toasting!
