    “Peace and quiet in deepest, darkest Devon.”

    Fab cottage in the middle of nowhere. Hosts were very helpful with directions and recommendations for eating out. Everything you needed was there, really liked the log burner. My only complaint, I suffer from back problems and found the bed a bit too soft. But that's really a personal thing. Other than that, perfect.

About the location

SHEEPWASH

Great Torrington 9 miles; Okehampton 12 miles; Bideford 16 miles; Bude 20 miles.

Sheepwash village is set in the peaceful Torridge Valley in Devon. The village offers a shop and a friendly traditional pub set in the village square, serving good food and locally brewed ales. Sheepwash is ideal for walkers and country lovers, being located in the heart of Ruby Trail Country and within easy reach of the Tarka Trail or the coast. Stroll along the River Torridge where you are more than likely to spot an otter family and maybe a Kingfisher or two. There are many places of interest in the surrounding area, including the coastal towns of Bude, Clovelly, Bideford and Westward Ho!, where you will find traditional seaside activities, surfing and the South West coastal footpath. Dartmoor is within 20 minutes’ drive, as is the RHS Rosemoor at Great Torrington and several National Trust properties, and a good variety of visitor attractions, ideal for families or couples, such as the Big Sheep at Bideford, Trethorne Leisure Farm at Launceston, the Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhampstead, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are all within reach.
