Fabulous family Christmas house

My two families thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Deers Leap. We loved the outside Jacuzzis and sauna. The kitchen was huge and was the hub at breakfast time with its Aga and heated floor. The Christmas decorations were wonderful all around the house. Our hosts lived on-site and fixed anything that went wrong immediately. We can’t recommend this place enough.

Perfect for large groups and a beautiful setting

We had our wedding at Deer’s Leap Retreat and our family and close friends stayed in the Farmhouse. It is a beautiful cottage with a great sized private garden, as well as two hot tubs and a sauna! We had people glamping on site as well and the glamping guests spent an evening drinking and eating in the farmhouse, in addition to the people staying in the Farmhouse, and it didn’t feel crowded at all. All the rooms in the Farmhouse are of varied sizes and the staff on-site are more than happy to change room configurations around to suit your needs. They have Z-beds and additional bedding if you need. There are a few en-suits and more than enough additional bathrooms to suit large groups. The kitchen facilities are fantastic and the lounge is a great size for chilling in the evening. There is a wood burner in the lounge to make it even cosier. On site there is a games room with pool, darts and another TV – there are sofas and chairs in this room if you want to hang out there as well. The whole site is in a remote location in the countryside so it is really quiet and relaxing with great views. There are some chickens and other animals on site as well which is really fun. I would definitely recommend this house!

Everything about this stay was excellent! The facilities, cleanliness, hospitality-everything!

Heather and James made us feel so welcome. It was such a perfect setting for a special family holiday. Stunningly beautiful countryside and amazing facilities. Like home from home but in a gorgeous setting with the most relaxing holiday vibe, just perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were so accommodating, thank you.

Farmhouse has the homely feel that you want set in a beautiful venue setting. Very comfortable and very well equipped with everything you could need. We had 23 guests staying and so much room no one on top of each other. Hot tubs sauna and garden gives you the opportunity to chill out and BBQ is a lovely touch. Highly recommend and we are looking forward to coming back,

80th Birthday Celebration

Heather and her team made us all feel very welcome right down to suppling birthday balloons. My dream had been to have Champagne down by the lake once she found that out she arranged for the arbour to be fitted with comfortable seating and a centre table. Nothing was too much for her. Thank you.

A blissflully peaceful sanctuary in the heart of Exmoor

We had a wonderful stay at Deer’s Leap which proved to be the perfect spot from which to both explore Exmoor and visit the beaches. Fantastic bodyboarding at Woolacombe and Putsborough, and lovely river walks at Tarr steps. Deer’s Leap itself was brilliantly equipped with a peaceful, private garden and a delightful hot tub. Heather and James were incredibly helpful when needed. Warmly recommended.
