Brexworthy Farm Cottages

Bradworthy 2.5 miles, Bude 7 miles. These five cosy, character cottages are in an attractive courtyard setting on a working smallholding near the picturesque village of Bradworthy. Lying on grassy meadow uplands overlooking the beautiful 81 acre Upper Tamar Lake, these Devon cottages offer a peaceful retreat for couples amidst rolling countryside, with the chance to sample Devon farming life, as the owners keep rare breeds of sheep, alpacas and free range chickens, plus guests have the opportunity to see the new born lambs in February on request. These Devon cottages have been beautifully restored from old farm buildings and are furnished in a traditional, rustic style to provide charming holiday homes with plenty of character. Positioned around the farmhouse, each Devon cottage has its own garden area and use of a communal courtyard garden full of flowers and shrubs. From here there is access to a dog walking field and plenty of countryside walks with wonderful views of the lake. The local village of Bradworthy has plenty of interesting small grocery shops and pubs set around the traditional village square. The dramatic North Cornwall coastline is only 10 minutes in the car, where there are stunning cliff-top walks along the South West Coast Path, some pretty fishing villages to explore such as Clovelly and Appledore and long sandy, dog-friendly beaches in the Bude area, with Bude itself offering great beaches, superb surfing and a variety of amenities. You will be sure of a huge welcome at these friendly Devon cottages.

The property

Tucked away in a rural location on a smallholding on the outskirts of the village of Bradworthy rests the single-storey converted granary, Honey Bee Cottage.

Overlooking the picturesque Upper Tamar Lake, this cosy countryside retreat makes for a romantic base to explore the delights of the Devonshire country and coastline.

Stepping into this delightful bolthole, you're welcomed into an open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with a rustic interior, boasting exposed wooden beams and original stonework, retaining the character and charm of the former farm building.

After an action-packed day, settle in on the sofa and put your feet up in front of the television, enveloping the sociable space with the warmth of the charming electric woodburner before heading through to the country-style rustic wooden kitchen to prepare an intimate meal for two to enjoy at the dining table.

Step outside and take a seat on the patio as your furry friends stretch their legs to watch the breath-taking sunset over the horizon in the distance, toasting a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday with your significant other.

At the end of a busy day, retire to the fabulous king-size room, set with an antique four poster bed and decorated with wooden beams and exposed stonework, providing a snug and homely setting to rest your head, and benefiting from its own en-suite bathroom for your convenience.

Prepare for a new day with an invigorating cup of coffee and a sociable seat in the shared gardens, or clock up your steps with a peaceful stroll around the neighbouring farmland, where you can meet rare breeds of alpacas and newborn lambs.

Take a break from doing the cooking and head into the center of Bradworthy, home to a traditional 16th-century pub set in a coaching inn, offering a fine selection of real ales and serving delicious dishes cooked with locally sourced produce, or head to the local family-run butchers to pick up some fresh meats to prepare in the comfort of your holiday home.

Spend a fun-filled day at the Blue Flag award-winning beach, Widemouth Bay, stretching two miles of magnificent golden sand, where you can enjoy a revitalizing dip in the open waters, or thrill-seekers can tackle the waves with an exciting lesson in surfing.

If you'd prefer to stay on land, enjoy the three-mile stroll North along the rugged cliff edges of the South West Coast Path to the popular seaside town of Bude, home to an exciting selection of shops and eateries to suit all tastes.

Other attractions worth visiting include the towering Hedge Maze and the The Milky Way Adventure Park on the outskirts of Bideford, the 18th Century country house of Hartland Abbey and the National Trust's Finch Foundry, homing a historic water-powered forge.

Treat your loved one to a romantic retreat to explore the delights of Devon with a stay at Honey Bee Cottage.
