This pretty property nestles in the grounds of a working family farm, just a short drive from the coast, and has been lovingly furnished to provide a comfortable base for families and couples alike.

Hiding within a wonderful rural setting on a working family farm, this charming cottage is perfectly placed for exploring both Devon and Cornwall. Ideal for tucking yourself away from the rest of the world, you’ll find all the home comforts you could need for a romantic retreat or a family stay. The cottage benefits from having direct access to the South West Coast Path - enjoy early morning walks watching the sun rise over the water - there really is nothing more refreshing.

Stepping inside, the highlights of traditional wood, paired with the slate floor instantly transports you back in time. Warm, yet subtle tones dress the rooms, creating a cosy, yet light and spacious feel. The open-plan kitchen/dining area is perfect for cooking up a feast whilst still being able to socialise with your companions - there’s even a rocking horse sitting gracefully at the foot of the stairs. The lounge area, just off of this dining space allows you to tuck yourself away from the rest of the world and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area. The comfort continues upstairs with pretty country-cottage-style bedrooms, and a bath overlooking the countryside beyond. Venturing outside, you’ll discover a serene lawn area complete with outside seating, gazebo, and charcoal BBQ - perfect for dining alfresco and soaking up the fresh Devon air.

You’ll find yourself in the heart of rural Devon with endless opportunity for adventure right on your doorstep; enjoy woodland walks and picnics in the hills. The charming coastal town of Bude is just 8 miles from the property and is well worth a visit for its fantastic selection of eateries, independent boutiques, long stretch of golden sand and tidal pool. Closer to home, Holsworthy is just 3.5 miles away, an adorable village lost in time - grab a bite to eat and peruse the local market.

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

You couldnt find nicer owners, Tony is fantastic and is so welcoming. The farm is such a nice place to take children with a very friendly dog. The cottage was really cozy and homely. We would definitely come back to this area.

The cottage was comfortable enough and had a spacious breakfast area. For us the rural location was ideal and very quiet. The owner, Tony, did his best to be helpful with the faulty electrical equipment but without success. That was disappointing as we had paid more for this cottage than others advertised locally.

This is the second time we have stayed at Monks Rest and taken our two grandsons with us. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday as did the boys (aged 7 and 8) . Plenty to do in the area and the boys can play safely outside the cottage. Thank you again to Tony and Sue .
