Description

Enjoy a family holiday from this property, with beaches and adventure parks within easy reach.

"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, semi-detached barn conversion. Open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, well-equipped kitchen area and slate floor. First floor: Beamed double bedroom with French windows to Juliet balcony, distant sea views and en-suite shower room and toilet.

    The cottage facilities ie: the gym and sauna were great and probably made it worth the money which was expensive for the time of year. The cottage itself was disappointing having an open staircase to the bedroom with no bedroom door so there was no privacy and silence as we went to bed at different times. The toilet flush was annoying in that the lid had to be closed to ensure a full flush. There was a carpet in the bathroom which wasn't ideal. Unfortunately and beyond anyone's control the slug and snail population was prolific and outside our front door every morning and evening.

    Beautiful cottage, in a beautiful location with stunning views all around. On arrival the owners had left a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates for our arrival which was a lovely gesture. The cottage was clean and had charm and character. There was a folder with ideas on where to visit and restaurant recommendation. We found this so helpful in visiting and eating in some amazing places. We would highly recommend the cottage, there are 6 other cottages there so would be ideal if you want to go in a larger group

    Absolutely fantastic cottage and facilities. Nothing too much trouble for the owners and managers. Attention to detail is first class. The sauna would be great if you were there as a group. Clovelly and Hartland Quay are well worth a visit. Would definitely go again!
