  • “This cottage is great for those ...”

    This cottage is great for those looking for a rural retreat but with good access to amenities (Tesco circa 10 minute drive) and beaches (Westwood Ho! circa 15 mins drive). The farm is a working farm with sheep (and lambs when we visited), ducks and chickens, which adds to the appeal. The cottage is simply laid out but well equipped and the enclosed garden a real bonus for the dog (or small children). You're free to roam the farm fields which made for some lovely evening walks with great views ...

    This cottage is great for those looking for a rural retreat but with good access to amenities (Tesco circa 10 minute drive) and beaches (Westwood Ho! circa 15 mins drive).

The cottage is simply laid out but well equipped and the enclosed garden a real bonus for the dog (or small children). You're free to roam the farm fields which made for some lovely evening walks with great views across the valley. Richard and his wife are on site should you need any help - they're super friendly and welcoming, but also give you space to enjoy your break. We didn't use the pool but I could imagine this being fab fun in the summer. Overall this cottage ticked all our boxes and we would definitely return.

The property

On a 130 acre farm on the side of a valley two miles from Bideford is this single storey cottage, one of four converted from barns.

With extensive grounds and a shared seasonal outdoor pool, this is welcoming accommodation for families.

Head up a couple of steps into your sitting room, a relaxing space with TV, a dining table and a door to the garden.

The kitchen is well equipped for preparing delicious meals from fresh Devon produce.

The two bedrooms are light and bright and share the smart family bathroom.

Outside is the brilliant outdoor pool, solar heated and with a handy paddling pool for the little ones.

When you've done your lengths, stretch out on the sun terrace loungers whilst the children play in the orchard.

Enjoy alfresco meals in the shared picnic area or lay your outdoor table in the private enclosed garden to the side of the cottage which has great valley views.

Beyond the cottages are paddocks to roam on this traditional working farm.

You can also walk or cycle on the fabulous car-free Tarka Trail starting from Instow, or why not catch the boat from Bideford to Lundy Island?

Bideford is an interesting old town to explore, with its pannier market and heritage railway, or maybe try some bird watching along the picturesque Torridge estuary.

Pop your boards in the car and head to Westward Ho! beach to catch some waves and there are more excellent surfing beaches at Saunton and Woolacombe.

The Cart Linhay is a characterful cottage on a lovely old farm with great coast nearby.

About the location

BIDEFORD

Westward Ho! 3 miles; Appledore and Instow 3.5 miles; Clovelly 11 miles; Saunton Sands 16 miles; Bude 25 miles.

Bideford is an historic maritime town on the River Torridge in North Devon. There has been a settlement at Bideford for over a thousand years and it has been an important port throughout its history. Today, Bideford is a thriving town with a fine selection of shops (including individual shops), cafes and restaurants, a park and the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre located on the outskirts of the town. Bideford is in a fantastic location to explore the surrounding area. It is just a few miles from Westward Ho!, which is dominated by two miles of spectacular coastline and proudly retains the prestigious Blue Flag award year upon year. Its sandy beach, backed by a unique pebble ridge, attracts visitors from all over the country and offers fantastic bathing and watersport activities. Just beyond the pebble ridge is Northam Burrows Country Park, which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has 253 hectares of grassy coastal plain with salt marsh, sand dunes and grasslands. The country park is also home to England's oldest golf course. The South West Coastal Path and the famous traffic-free Tarka Trail are close by, providing magnificent walking and cycling opportunities. The award-winning Big Sheep all weather family attraction and the Ultimate Adventure Centre are approximately a mile down the road, with the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre and Supermarket a couple of miles away, and the pretty villages of Appledore and Instow are just over three miles away. Plus there are cycling and walking opportunities along the nearby Tarka Trail. The delightful quayside village of Appledore and the pretty beach at Instow are both just over three miles away, whilst the traditional market town of Barnstaple is just ten miles away, and the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly, with its quaint cobbled streets, is eleven miles away. The North Devon coast also boasts numerous outstanding beaches, many within easy reach, including those found at Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde, Woolacombe and Bude. This is an area of breathtaking beauty, with plenty to see and do for all ages.
