The Old Stables (previously Babbling Brook) is a dog friendly property located on the edge of Exmoor national park within 2 miles of the village of Bratton Fleming and Challacombe. The cottage has an enclosed patio garden and use of a 4 foot fenced 0.5 acre paddock which is within 10m of the cottage. The extra bonus is that the North Devon Secure dog field walking is also within walking distance of the Holiday Cottage. This is owned and managed by another business so there will be a charge for this. 

The Cottage is located within the grounds of Kipscombe, a 3 acre non working farm situated in a rural location  yet within easy access of Towns and beaches. The cottage has views of the North Devon rolling hills from the open plan lounge/ kitchen and from the conservatory. Sitting in the property you can faintly hear the water running through the babbling brook.

Truly Dog Friendly

The cottage at Kipscombe is perfect for all types of dogs. The patio garden is enclosed, and you have use of another 0.5 acre enclosed field within 10 metres of the property.

Exclusive use secure field which can be hired during your stay, this is far enough away not be heard but close enough to walk to and enjoy.
You can take your dogs for a walk down to the Babbling brook then back up to the 0.5 acre off lead field for some fun and exercise. Then back to the cottage for a cosy night in.
You'll find a wood burning stove in the lounge and full central heating throughout making this an ideal holiday base any time of year. Although a rural property you will find the dog friendly cottage provides easy access to explore the North Devon countryside.
