The property

Nestling in the countryside, the wing of this farmhouse provides spacious and comfortable accommodation near Bideford, North Devon.

This is a wonderful choice for families who wish to experience life on a working Devon farm.

You will find the kitchen spacious and well equipped with all the modern appliances for an effortless holiday and when evening comes, settle down in the open plan sitting and dining area on some comfy sofas and warm yourself in front of the wood burning stove.

The bedrooms are roomy and have a real country feel with some wonderful, far reaching countryside views from the front.

After a peaceful night's sleep, step outside and let the fun begin!

With two other holiday cottages on site, this is the perfect place for children and adults to enjoy some outdoor fun, adventure and relaxation.

Maybe you will be there to help out at lambing time, or sit and cast your line in one of the lakes.

Children will delight as the lambs skip over to say hello while they are making friends in the play area.

Fancy trying your hand at some clay pigeon shooting?

Equipment is provided and days can be purchased at just 40p per shot.

As darkness settles, an array of nocturnal creatures including owls, foxes and badgers can be watched under a canopy of stars unblemished by city lights.

The market town of Bideford sits on the west bank of the River Torridge and has a good selection of shops and eateries.

A visit to the Pannier Market is a treat for lovers of local produce and hop on a boat from here to Lundy Island or a cruise along the coast.

North Devon has some beautiful stretches of soft golden sands and award winning beaches, surfing waves, sandcastle competitions and water sports galore.

Westward Ho!, which takes its name from the novel by Charles Kingsley has a wide stretch of beach separating the Northam Burrows with a pebble ridge, here golf lovers can try their hand at the Royal North Devon Golf Club, reputedly the oldest links course in the UK or maybe a horse-ride along the beach.

This is the perfect choice for those who are looking for an outdoor adventure.

For the more active, several major surfing beaches, golf courses, theme parks and other attractions are nearby and the South West coast path passes close by on its way into Cornwall. The beautiful cliff-top fishing village of Clovelly is half an hour by road, and the delights of Exmoor and Dartmoor can be reached in under an hour. Surf the waves, stroll through pretty villages, wander along the Tarka Trail, visit a famous garden or have some fun at one of the local theme or farm parks – it’s all on the doorstep.
