One of nine stone cottages, in a courtyard setting offer a perfect base for families. Enjoy scenic walks, cycling, fun on the beach or swim in the heated outdoor pool.

A pretty stone barn conversion with a shared heated outdoor swimming pool and play area, this cottage is set in a peaceful complex of nine properties, less than a mile from the vast sandy beach and seaside village of Westward Ho!. Guests are free to explore the 15 acres of farmland surrounding the cottages and meet the resident goats, sheep and Kunekune pigs. Two dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead while on site.

 

The two-storey cottage is cosy and homely; a comfortable base for a small family or couple looking to explore the glorious North Devon coast. A double and twin bedroom share a bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC. Set in a pretty courtyard with the other properties, the cottage benefits from the use of a shared 40ft outdoor heated swimming pool during the summer months, and children will love the play area with swings, slide and stilted playhouse. A shared BBQ area within a grassy field bordered by trees is the perfect spot to relax on a sunny evening and there’s a shared lawn at the front of the property too.

 

Under a mile away, the village of Westward Ho! offers grocery shops, a bakery, pubs, restaurants and cafes, not to mention a 2-mile stretch of golden sand at low to mid tide. Visit the harbour town of Bideford (3 miles) for independent shops and eateries, or to hop onto the Tarka Trail, a walking and cycling route leading 32 miles from Braunton to Meeth. Family attractions The BIG Sheep (1.5 miles) and The Milky Way (8.5 miles) will keep little ones entertained for hours.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Its probably harsh to judge the property in the current climate (ie. post Covid) but i feel we overpaid for our week, as the cottage did not live up to our expectations based on how much we paid. This is us comparing to previous cottage we stayed in which was cheaper and better, but this was pre-covid. All i can say is, the cottage was very small, Read morethe laundry facilities have to paid for and are shared with other guests which caused stress for my wife. No floats allowed in the pool. Hide

Beautiful surroundings and excellent location. Children absolutely loved the playground, animals and pool, although not heated enough for 5 year old in a wetsuit to last any length of time! We had a lovely holiday. Lots of outdoor space for playing family games. Cottage extremely clean, well decorated and well equipped kitchen. However, minor thingRead mores like lack of decent shower, broken equipment etc. let it down a little. Hide

What a lovely holiday, The set up on the farm is brilliant for small children, there is a safe gated play area and the pool is gated entry so there is no chance that small children can escape into the pool unsupervised. The cottages are compact but immaculately clean. Previous reviews mentioned weak wi-fi but this was not a problem at all, it was mRead moreore than enough to watch Netflix on the iPad. The shower pressure is weak as noted but absolutely not a problem. We loved our holiday thank you. Hide

The cottage was clean and practical and quiet but close to the beach and other amenities. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The shared pool was an amazing addition and we all enjoyed it. The only downside was that the play area didnt have the swings and slide as pictured. This was a shame for us with 2 small children but didnt detract fromRead more the holiday. Hide
