One of three cottages on this working farm in North Devon, surrounded by idyllic villages and situated just eight miles from the traditional village of Clovelly on the Atlantic coast.

Situated on a pleasant working farm close to Bideford, this quaint cottages is the ideal countryside retreat. Rolling hills and winding rivers characterise the landscapes and you'll also be close to some of Devon's best surfing beaches less than 10 miles to the North. Family's will also find being near to several of the area's top attractions like The BIG Sheep and The Milky Way theme parks a great plus.

The cottage has a clean, fresh and homely feel, combining comfort, character and convenience. The lounge/diner is intimate and calming, and there’s a lovely retro feel to the kitchen, with a Belfast sink and mid-century touches. Upstairs, the double bedroom is light and airy, with an elegant Edwardian bed and exposed wooden flooring. There’s space for the children to play in the bunk bedroom too. Outside there’s a raised, private front patio with picnic table for long al fresco lunches, before memorable afternoon wanderings around the 10 acres of farmland. Children can experience farm life by collecting eggs from the ducks and chickens, or blow off steam in the shared play area, while the adults luxuriate in the shared hot tub within its own barn. The secure garage is a bonus, and DIY livery is available at extra cost.

Further afield, discover the timeless charms and romantic harbour of Clovelly (9 miles), the independent shops, pubs, eateries and galleries of Bideford (7 miles) and Appledore (10 miles), and the golden sands of Westward Ho! (9 miles) and Croyde (12 miles) where you could grab a board and learn to surf. The wild and rugged Hartland Coast starts 10 miles away, for superb walks and scenery.

Nice quiet area and within easy reach of beaches and seaside towns. The cream tea was a nice touch and the hot tub was relaxing. Nice places to walk the dog and shops and cafes allowed dogs inside, very handy when the rain set in.

We had a wonderful 4 days at the cottage. Off the beaten track, it was an idyllic location, with peace and quiet. Outside on the rural country lane we found honeysuckle and foxgloves growing in the wild. We received a warm welcome, and the suggestion of eating in the local pub was well worth the visit. Central to the area we wanted to explore in noRead morerth Devon, and at the end of the day the hot tub was a delight. We will definitely think of returning here when we next plan to explore Devon.

Great ecklesworth hard to find very out of the way close to Bideford 30 mins but takes hour travelling to anywhere else not within walking distance of anywhere however very quiet and peaceful and relaxing. Both cottages need some TLC and great ecklesworth was definately not worth what I paid due to the many problems we had. Owners were away but KimRead more was excellent and very understanding cream tea and hot tub were a nice touch. However I would not return again as to far away from everything for me Hide
