A great escape.
In quiet countryside, close to the dramatic coastline of the Hartland Peninsula, the South West Coast Path and the Devon/Cornwall border, is this group of five friendly holiday cottages.
The Milking Parlour - once a farm building now a comfortable, characterful, two-bedroom cottage.
It’s all on one level with views to the sea across fields and beyond the tower of St Nectan’s Church.
The beamed sitting room has a wood-burning stove in the big inglenook fireplace and double doors onto the enclosed terrace garden with its barbecue and gate to the picnic/play area (with climbing frame/swing/slide).
The country kitchen has a dishwasher and washing machine, a Belfast sink and wooden worktops.
The spa room with hot tub and sauna can be booked for private sessions.
Children can join the owners and help feed the ducks and chickens – often pigs too – in the mornings.
There’s a good pub, a little shop and museum down by the sea at Hartland Quay where the beach is great for rock pooling at low tide and swimming off the quay when the tide is high.
Wander through the woods to Hartland with its village stores, Post Office, coffee shop, potteries and pubs...
Or to Hartland Abbey House and Gardens with a lovely walk through to the sea at Blackpool Mill.
The magnificent swimming and surfing beaches of Bude and Sandymouth Bay; Westward Ho!, Northam and Appledore are less than 30 minutes’ drive.
The steeply cobbled village of Clovelly is a short drive along the coast.
For children: The Milky Way and The Big Sheep adventure parks are nearby.
