Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Perfect for getting away with your loved ones, this property has it all for a summer break away, including a swimming pool and lots of attractions close by.

Pillhead Cottage (ref UKC754), Garden Cottage (ref UKC2186) and Corn Tallet (ref UKC3360) are the perfect choice to enjoy a relaxing coastal escape for friends and family at any time of year. Benefitting from an outdoor swimming pool during the summer months, there is something for everyone at Pillhead Farm. The pool is shared by five holiday properties, three of which are featured here. Pillhead Cottage nestles peacefully on the edge of the owner’s 130-acre sheep farm. With glorious views, this pretty detached cottage sits within its own gardens at the beginning of the farm lane, yet is just a few minutes’ walk from the shared swimming pool. It offers enough space for all the family. Garden Cottage is a spacious property which adjoins the owner’s farmhouse, has a large private garden and is just across the yard from the shared swimming pool. Corn Tallet is a delightful upside down barn conversion with a light and airy living space on the first floor, with apex ceilings and a door which opens out into the garden. The three pretty bedrooms are downstairs, two of which open onto a patio balcony. All cottages have been thoughtfully furnished, and each has a private sunny garden, the perfect spot to enjoy an al fresco supper or a lazy breakfast whilst you plan your day.

If you can tear yourself away, the pretty beach at Instow is just 3 miles away, or the wide golden sandy beach of Westward Ho! which is popular with surfers, is only 4 miles away. Walkers can join the coastal path, or alternatively, cycle or walk the famous Tarka Trail which passes close by. The delightful port town of Bideford has a good selection of town amenities and a weekly market. Garden lovers will enjoy the nearby RHS Rosemoor and Docton Mill. There is something for all the family to enjoy, including The Ultimate Adventure Centre, The Big Sheep and The Milky Way adventure parks which are all close by. Take a boat trip to the nature reserve at Lundy Island, or explore many of the pretty fishing villages, including nearby Clovelly (National Trust), and Hartland. Golf, horse riding and fishing are all available locally.

All the cottages have been furnished to a very good standard and Pillhead Farm is the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of life, and the ideal location to make some glorious holiday memories. Beach 3 miles. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub 1½ miles. These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 18 guests.

    Lovely cottage, very Cosey but spacious and well equipped. The location was very relaxing with good views across the valley. Most attractions were about half an hour’s drive away, apart from bideford town and harbour, which is delightful and only a few minutes away. Our short break was to celebrate the New Year in Bideford. The street party was good, but the weather not so good!

    The cottage is in a lovely setting of green pastures. The rooms are spacious and well set out. The pool was a hit with our children although the weather could have been warmer! The hosts were lovely and friendly and we were pleased to stay there.
