This charming cottage is located on a 200-acre working dairy farm, set within peaceful countryside surroundings, and is ideally located for enjoying a relaxing rural holiday in North Devon.

This delightful cottage, situated on a working dairy farm in rural North Devon, is the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life. Immerse yourself in the surrounding countryside, enjoy the tranquillity and breathe in that fresh country air. From here, you can explore the countryside, the cliffs or the beach making it a great base to enjoy everything North Devon has to offer. And in the evening, you can snuggle up in front of the wood burner.

This charming semi-detached cottage has been tastefully renovated to offer guests a comfortable place to stay. Decorated in neutral tones and warm woods, it feels cosy and inviting throughout. The ground floor has a beautiful tile floor with underfloor heating and consists of a well-equipped kitchen and open-plan lounge/diner with wood burner. On the first floor are the two bedrooms which are spacious and enjoy far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside. Outside, there is 200 acres of farm to explore and plenty of opportunities to experience farm life. There is also an enclosed, south-facing patio area as well as a garden, so you can fully appreciate your surroundings.

Westward Ho!, with its miles of sandy beach, is 6 miles away and is the ideal place to play in the sand, catch a wave or explore the rockpools. The historic, market town of Bideford with an array of shops and eateries is only 4 miles away. For something more energetic, why not cycle the Tarka Trail and discover places such as Instow and Fremington Quay. For families, there is also award-winning attractions such as The BIG Sheep (4.2 miles) and The Milky Way (7 miles).

A wonderful homely cottage. Lovely to be provided with milk, coffee, tea and biscuits on arrival. All the family had a very relaxing time - great pub lunches and beach walks, and my youngest loved helping to milk the cows each day. A big thanks to Les, Sue and Brook.

We had a lovely time in Woodpecker. Sue and Les were very nice. Left us to ourselves but were on hand and very approachable. Their collie Max was adorable and was our welcoming committee on our return each day although he put Finley our 10 mth old Lab in his place. We got to see the cows being milked, a very interesting experience. A great place toRead more stay. Hide

We had a wonderful week at Woodpecker Cottage with our three dogs. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The property has a secure garden for dogs and the views of the countryside are beautiful and relaxing. The cottage is on a farm and as you would expect the lanes are narrow but quiet.
