The Cottage

Nestling in unspoiled countryside, just a few miles from the north Devon coast, The Cottage, is one of three self-catering holiday cottages positioned on a working farm with children’s play area and fishing lakes on site. The perfect choice for a traditional family holiday, the cottage adjoins the rear of the owners’ farmhouse and overlooks the farmyard and lake.

Two bedrooms offer versatile sleeping with one double room and a family room with a double bed and two single beds. There is a separate shower room. The owners’ farmland extends over 100 acres and often you will encounter the sheep who act as useful lawnmowers and keep the grass cut in the picnic area. There is a large play area to keep children amused or why not have a go at a spot of fishing in the three lakes on site. Weather permitting guests can try their hand at clay pigeon shooting arranged through the owner. Just a few miles away is the glorious flat sands at Westward Ho! an ideal family beach with gently shelving sands and rock pools for little ones’ to play.
