Description

Enjoy a romantic holiday at this cottage, which has a wood-burning stove and sea views from the bedroom.

"Glorious sea views from this tranquil retreat on the breathtaking North Devon coast. Downe Holiday Cottages are set in a stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the Hartland Peninsula."

These eight individual holiday cottages (refs HTTW, HTTX, HTTY, HTTZ, KAAA, KAAB, KAAC and KAAD) have been lovingly converted and sit around a pretty courtyard beside the owners’ home, Downe House, a listed farmhouse dating back to the 15th century in the midst of rolling farmland that slopes gently to the coast. All the properties are spacious, have en-suite bathrooms and many have sea views north to Lundy Island and west over the Atlantic. Guests are free to use the 7 acres of land, including a 2-acre meadow and play area which is ideal for children to let off steam. Guests may use the gym facilities and spa facilities free of charge. The gym is equipped with Life Fitness equipment and is accessible all day. The spa consists of a spa bath (with seats for 8 adults), a steam room (with seats for 7 adults), and a sauna, and is available to guests from 6pm-9pm each evening. There is also a reading room on site which is available for guests. A towelling robe is provided free of charge for each adult.
The perfect setting for walking holidays, cycling holidays, romantic or family breaks, this relaxing holiday retreat is just 1 mile from the South West Coastal Path, as well as many sandy beaches and hidden coves. To the south west lies Hartland Abbey and to the north west lies Blegberry, a fortified farm dating from the 1600s. In the distance, the stone tower of St Nectan’s Church rises above the picturesque village of Stoke.
The sea, Berry Cove and the South West Coastal Path are a mile’s walk away along a quiet, single-track road and a small footpath. The unspoilt village of Hartland is a mile away, either by road or by footpaths that take you along the side of a small river through the picturesque vale. The historic village of Clovelly is six miles away.
This is a perfect spot at any time of year, with fishing, golf, horse riding, surfing, sailing and walking all available in this stunning area. RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are well worth a visit, along with many pretty fishing villages to explore, including nearby Instow and Appledore. For family fun, the Big Sheep and Milky Way adventure parks are a must. Beach 1½ miles. Shop and pub 1 mile.

A two-storey, terraced barn conversion. Step to entrance. Open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, well-equipped kitchen, breakfast area and slate floor. First floor: Beamed double bedroom with 5ft bed, French windows to Juliet balcony, sea views to Lundy Island and en-suite shower room with toilet.

    An ideal retreat in an unspoilt area of beautiful countryside. You do have to travel to find a nice beach though...

    A great stay mid July 2016.The cottage had all the equipment needed.We chose to cook on a couple of occasions and everything was easy to operate.The bedroom is spacious,light and airy with French widows opening up to view Lundy Island and sunsets.We had the best nights sleep in ages. The owners and managers were so friendly and welcoming and were on hand if we had any queries,the cottages were very well managed. The option to use the conservatory and steam room were not taken. We have stayed in cottages similar to this and feel that this one, although great, is slightly overpriced.
