Nut Tree Farm is an unusual holiday “cottage” as it accommodates up to 28 people in style.

It’s absolutely perfect for extended family groups on a South Devon holiday. Guests book Nut Tree Farm years ahead as there are very few holiday properties ideal for big groups. The property is the winner of the 2019, 2022, 2023 and 2024 Customers’ Choice Award for a feed-back score of +9.5/10 or above.

Lots of space inside Nut Tree Farm

Nut Tree Farm has 13 bedrooms all with their own en-suite shower or bathrooms. The accommodation is in the barn wing of the building and the original farmhouse. A large dining room, three sitting rooms, huge kitchen and handy utility room leaves plenty of space for everyone.

Great facilities

The modern kitchen is designed to cater for big groups with two full-sized fridge-freezers, two ovens and hobs plus a utility room for laundry. Two sitting rooms have flat screen TVs so the children don’t have to fight with grown-ups! There is a cool Marshall bluetooth sound-dock in the dining room, both of the sitting room TVs are internet-content enabled. One is a 43″ smart TV and the other used an online blu-ray player, HDMI connection leads are provided. All double rooms have wall-mounted free-view televisions. Ashcombe’s own superfast broadband means there is now 40mb/s internet throughout the buildings using a Mesh Wi-Fi network.

Outside areas

Nut Tree guests have exclusive use of a 8 by 3.50m, 1.50m deep private heated outdoor pool (30°C from 1 April to 1 November) and a games barn with table tennis, pool table, board games, Giant Jenga and a skittles alley! Nut Tree has a large private off-street parking area. Just up the hill is the Woodhouse Farm heated indoor swimming pool facilities.

New in 2020 was The Pig Pen indoor/outdoor BBQ area. The Pig Pen is a new indoor/outdoor BBQ and dining area. For over 40 years the pig pens behind Nut Tree Farm holiday cottage at Ashcombe Country Cottages have sat idle, filled with all manner of junk. We wanted to offer the Nut Tree guests another option for their all-year-round outdoor cooking. The old pig pen has now been up-cycled in whimsical style and provides semi-al fresco dining space all year round.

The Pig Pen BBQ area

Making a pig of yourself should be easy, whatever the weather.

Parking & EV Charging

Exclusively for Nut Tree’s guests there is a large private parking area is across the lane by the front door.

We are planning to add a new EV charging point for Nut Tree very soon.  In the meantime at nearby Woodhouse Farm’s Endeavour Farmhouse there are two type 2 7.3kw EV charging points. Charging is through the Project EV app.  To save time before arrival, download and set up the Project EV app from The Apple App Store or Google Play. All you need to do is scan the QR code on the charger and plug in your car. This will charge your vehicle at a rate of 30 miles of range per hour.  Please remember to bring your own cable.

A walk about the property

Passing through the farmhouse front porch, a door opens left into a large double bedroom with an extra single bed. A wide oak staircase leads to four further bedrooms upstairs, one double bedroom with ensuite shower room and one double with an ensuite bathroom, and an ensuite twin and an ensuite triple room to the right. Turning right from the front entrance takes you into a comfortable sitting room with a large log burning stove and large smart TV. Large leather sofas provide comfortable seating. To the left is a smaller sitting room. A door leads off from here down to another double bedroom with ensuite shower room /W.C. A downstairs cloakroom is situated opposite the back door.

The south-facing barn’s first floor has one double bedroom, and three twin bedrooms all with en-suite shower wet-rooms/W.C.s. Leading from the second sitting room, the ground floor has one double room and two twin bedrooms all with en-suite shower wet-rooms/W.C.s – one also equipped for disabled. At the west end of the ground floor the comfortable 18 x 18ft sitting room connects to a large dining room seating 28 at three oak tables, and this joins on to a modern kitchen. A door leads on to a laundry and utility room.

Nut Tree Farm has two enclosed lawns, one with a shady walnut tree and the other has the 12ft x 24ft heated swimming pool.  At the rear of the property is a games barn with pool, skittles and table tennis, plus a TV for use with games consoles.

    I went here with 28 others for my partners 25th Birthday.

    We came down on Friday night and spent two nights at Nut Tree Farm. HUGE success. Cannot recommend this cottage more for a no-frills weekend away for a large amount of people. Cottage totally fit for purpose – everything wipeable (leather sofas, no carpets etc) and everything in bulk (2 freezers, 2 fridges, 3 ovens etc). The activity centre round the corner was absolutely brilliant – we went clay pigeon shooting and paintballing (which 20 boys loved). We dressed the dining room with candles and put the tables together which comfortably fitted 28 for a dinner party and it looked really beautiful. Really really fantastic, thanks very much.

    I have just returned from 2 nights at Nut Tree farm to celebrate my 50th birthday with 22 family and friends. We could not fault the property at all. There was nothing we needed that wasn’t there. Plenty of cutlery, crockery, glasses, cooking utensils and even 2 fridges, freezers, cookers and dishwashers. Beautifully done up and not at all tired looking. Perfect set up,for a perfect week end – only problem was that it was only a 2 night stay! We had a cream tea delivered (lynscatering) and the local Indian (The Ghurka Kirchen) catered for us in the evening. We did quad biking at the adventure centre with Devon Leisure who were fantastic with us all, no matter our age (5-55) or ability. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. Thank you.

    Just returned from a 2 night stay at Nut Tree Farm to celebrate my Mum’s 90th birthday with her family of 28. Fantastic venue for such a mixed age group (1yr-90yrs). Everything you need to make a great weekend and comfortable rooms. Will definitely be booking again, we all had a great time.

    Our family of 21 spent a wonderful week at Ashcombe. The accommodation has all you could wish for and is later out to ensure you are not on top of one another. Highly recommended for large group holidays.
