    “An amazing cottage.”

    Quiet rural location, where the owners have thought of everything. We arrived to homemade scones with jam and clotted cream, they even gave us rhubarb from their allotment. A relaxing break for anyone from old to young. We have a large dog and the enclosed garden was perfect. We had a fire every night, you help yourself from the woodstore. The children enjoyed the close proximity of the animals and were welcomed to wander around the farm. The couple were the nicest people and would do anything ...

A relaxing break for anyone from old to young. We have a large dog and the enclosed garden was perfect. We had a fire every night, you help yourself from the woodstore.

The decor is dated but that adds to the charm. We will be booking again next year.

About the location

PARKHAM

Bideford 6 miles.

Parkham nestles in a tranquil North Devon valley, three miles from the dramatic coastline around Barnstaple Bay and a ten minute drive from the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly, famous for working donkeys, smuggling stories and ancient cottages clinging to the cliffside. Parkham has a long established family butcher supplying high quality products to the surrounding area, including the well-known Ruby Red beef. Parkham is close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The National Trust own and manage extensive tracts of coastline along the North Devon coast including Peppercombe Valley, Worthygate and Sloo Woods. Just six miles away from Parkham is the quaint bustling town of Bideford which boasts a medieval bridge, town quay, quaint pannier market and vibrant shopping area - all well worth a visit. For the more active, several major surfing beaches, golf courses, theme parks and other attractions are nearby. The beautiful clifftop fishing village of Clovelly is close by and the delights of Exmoor and Dartmoor can be reached in under an hour.
