    “Wow! What a fantastic find.”

    Our stay was 3 days on this occasion, but we are definitely going to book again for a longer stay. The place was easy to find from the directions supplied. Parking was sufficient for the one car. The home was warm and so spacious. The rooms were immaculate, and there were books and board games if you found yourself in need. Large screen TV in the lounge and smaller ones in all the bedrooms. Great pubs nearby for some of the food we've ever had. In the words of Arnie - "We will be back"

The property

2 miles from Bideford, quietly situated on the edge of a valley, is Pillhead Farm, a 130 acre working sheep farm with paddocks and plenty of space for guests to roam.

Within the original farmstead are four cottages carefully converted from barns and the oldest part of the original farmhouse.

The cottages share the grounds, a splendid outdoor heated swimming pool (15' x 30' x 4' to 5' deep) with paddling pool (10' x 9' x 1'6" deep), available from the Friday immediately preceding the last bank holiday in May to the first Friday in September, a sunbathing terrace (loungers) and mown orchard.

Each cottage is individual and spacious and quite separate from the others, with its own outside space.

From your garden area (picnic table), 10 stone steps up to door (low lintel) into fitted kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with breakfast table/chairs.

About the location

BIDEFORD

Barnstaple 10 miles.

Straddling the Torridge estuary, the quaint bustling town of Bideford boasts a medieval bridge, town quay, quaint pannier market and vibrant shopping area - all well worth a visit. For the more active, several major surfing beaches, golf courses, theme parks and other attractions are nearby and the South West coast path passes close by on its way into Cornwall. The beautiful cliff-top fishing village of Clovelly is half an hour by road, and the delights of Exmoor and Dartmoor can be reached in under an hour. Surf the waves, stroll through pretty villages, wander along the Tarka Trail, visit a famous garden or have some fun at one of the local theme or farm parks – it’s all on the doorstep.

Note: Seasonal outdoor heated swimming pool and paddling pool, available from the Friday immediately preceding the last bank holiday in May to the first Friday in September.
