3 x Bedrooms
Perfect for Families
With two separate staircases, Harebell provides flexible bedroom accommodation. The master bedroom (super king or twin) has its own staircase which is situated off a hall at one end of the house. The other two bedrooms (twin and double) are located off a spacious landing, which sits at the other end of the house. All bedrooms have their own ensuite bathrooms, with thermostatic showers and underfloor heating, two with full baths.
The sitting room in Harebell is snug and full of character with lots of exposed beams, a wall-mounted TV with access to streaming channels (some require a subscription), a DVD player and comfortable seating. There is a galleried landing above, which leads to two bedrooms. Leading off the sitting room is a large utility area with a washing machine/tumble dryer, and separate cloakroom. The large utility room is heated, with a tiled floor and floor drain and is perfect for cleaning your muddy dog after a long walk.
The kitchen incorporates all modern amenities, with an island providing lots of preparation space, plenty of cooking utensils and a Rangemaster cooker. The farmhouse kitchen table seats six, and the sink overlooks the lake.
Leading out from the sitting room is the large lake side terrace, with a BBQ, table and chairs. The terrace outside Harebell has the best views anywhere at Eastacott Barton, overlooking the lake, with extensive views down the valley.

We love to welcome dogs at Eastacott Barton, (and they love it here too) but we do have some rules to ensure that everyone enjoys their stay and we keep the accommodation in five star condition.
We allow a maximum of two dogs in Stable and two dogs in Harebell (4 dogs in total if you rent both properties). Dogs must be housetrained and over the age of one years old. There is no extra charge for bringing your dog(s).
It is our strong preference that dogs do not sit on the furniture, however we are aware that, if the rules are different at home, this is hard to enforce when away. If you therefore cannot stop your dog from wanting to join you for a cuddle on the sofa, please use the large dog blankets provided to cover the sofas before allowing them up. This helps keep the furniture clean for other guests.
Please do not allow dogs upstairs or on the beds.
Please do not leave dogs alone or unattended in the property unless crated or shut in the utility room. We have a small and medium size crate available to borrow if required.
Harebell has a large utility room and there are numerous outside taps/hoses to clean your dog after a wet or muddy walk.
Dogs are not permitted to roam unattended and we ask that you pick up after your dog and dispose of dog waste in our allocated dog waste bin.
In each property we provide a small dog bed, dog towels, blankets for the furniture, poop bags, dog bowls and spare leads. We also leave a ‘Welcome Doggy Bag’ with treats. Please advise us at the time of booking if you are bringing a dog or dogs with you so we can ensure all these items are made available to you
We have a private fishing lake for our guests exclusive use which is stocked with coarse fish, including Perch, Tench, Orfe and Grass Carp.
Guests are welcome to fish but must use barbless hooks and return the fish unharmed.
There are good local salmon and sea trout rivers in the Taw, Torridge and Mole, and day tickets can be purchased with beats as close as Umberleigh (about 1 mile away).
There is also sea fishing available in Ilfracome and Appledore.
Stable and Harebell can be booked together to provide self catering accommodation for up to 12 guests, ideal for larger groups or families. The kitchen and the lounge are large enough to comfortably accommodate 12 people for dining and relaxing together as one group.
