This superb holiday cottage is located deep in the countryside opposite a working dairy farm. A short drive from the Cornwall border, the cottage is a great place from which to explore both counties.
This property is surrounded by beautiful farmland and is located only five miles from the Devon/Cornwall border. Guests are welcome to take walks though the ten-acre farmland which has well kept grass paths around the farm boundary, river and lake. By prior arrangement, children can collect the eggs from the free range hens and also feed the chickens. The North Devon coastline is a short drive away with its sandy beaches and rocky shorelines. Visitors can relax on the beach or walk the coastal path to enjoy beautiful sea views. The popular tourist locations of Hartland Quay and the pretty village of Clovelly are also nearby. Families can enjoy a day out at attractions such as The Milky Way, The Big Sheep, Tapeley Park and RHS Rosemoor Gardens.
