    “A very warm welcome on arrival, Matt & Suzi had taken the trouble to put milk in the fridge, fresh flowers on the table and a beautiful cake in the very well equipped and huge kitchen.”

    The bed was the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in and the lounge/diner was perfect. Our hosts clearly have an eye for detail. The porch area is ideal for drying wet/dirty dogs and drying towels etc. Our little dog Teddy, loved the fully enclosed safe garden where there is loads of space for him to chase his ball (when he wasn't chatting to the Alpacas,sheep & chickens). ...

    The bed was the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in and the lounge/diner was perfect. Our hosts clearly have an eye for detail. The porch area is ideal for drying wet/dirty dogs and drying towels etc. Our little dog Teddy, loved the fully enclosed safe garden where there is loads of space for him to chase his ball (when he wasn't chatting to the Alpacas,sheep & chickens). You'll need to drive everywhere as the nearest town is about 6 miles away, however, once back at the cottage it really is the perfect retreat. We loved it. Pete,Annette & Teddy too.

The property

Now a smallholding with a few sheep, alpacas and chickens.

Two bedrooms - a double (5' bed, iPod dock), and a twin (linkable to 6' double), both with lovely rural views.

Excellent bathroom (suite with roll-top bath and separate shower) with porcelain floor.

Wood working/furniture making courses available, by arrangement.

A great combination of modern comfort and rural serenity.

About the location

BRADWORTHY

Bude 10 miles.

With its large village square surrounded by cottages, village shops, garage and pub (renowned locally for its beer and good food), Bradworthy is the perfect example of the typical Devon country village. Off the beaten track and surrounded by the lush green pastures of North Devon, it provides the perfect base for a truly relaxing holiday in an area with several top class visitor attractions. Just 3 miles away the Tamar Lakes provide fishing and an array of watersports for the enthusiast, while south-west is the beach resort of Bude, with its outstanding surfing, rocky coves, golf course and restaurants. Several excellent stretches of the SW Coast Path, the beaches at Sandy Mouth and Welcombe Mouth, Hartland Point Quay and Lighthouse and the beautiful cliff-side village of Clovelly and bike riding on the Tarka Trail are some of the attractions that should not be missed in this fascinating area.

Note: Sorry, no short breaks
