From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Petrockstowe village is the home to this traditional, detached house, with fields leading to the Tarka Trail, beaches at Woolacombe and Sandymouth easily accessible.

With parts dating from the 1350s this beautifully restored, detached holiday house can be found on the edge of the North Devon village of Petrockstowe. The charming exterior is matched by the well appointed, comfortable interior. Every effort has been made to retain the charm of a house of this age but also with modern conveniences required by discerning guests. There is a large landscaped garden with a pond and is ideal to either find a quiet corner or have a run around. There is also 25 acres of fields to use that lead down to the Tarka Trail which is great for cycling or walking. In the village there is a charming pub and playground, both within walking distance of the house. The house is ideally suited to explore the charming North Devon coast and countryside, there are stunning beaches at Woolacombe and Sandymouth. Enjoy a day out at Hartland and visit the lighthouse, Hartland Quay and the historic fishing village at Clovelly. If gardens are of interest the R.H.S Gardens at Rosemoor are a delight and there are numerous National Trust properties in the surrounding area to enjoy. The towns of Great Torrington and Bideford lie close by with most amenities, as is Bideford’s quay where visitors can book a trip to Lundy Island. Slightly further afield is the Dartmoor National Park. Beach lovers will delight in the wide sandy beaches, the nearest being the Blue Flag beach at Westward Ho! The Milky Way and The Big Sheep will fascinate the younger ones. There are several local pubs nearby, with the nearest in the village serving real ale and home cooked food. Shop 2 miles, pub 500 yards.

    Beautiful cosy cottage with bags of charm and in a beautiful setting. Our party of 6 used both reception rooms and we especially love the separate 'hidden' wing containing separate lounge/bedroom and bathroom (used it as a bridal suite!). Lovely dining space to fit all of us and breakfast in the kitchen was perfect for the mornings!

    We had a fantastic New Year's break and the property was very appealing and authentic and the area fantastic. We were attracted to Syncocks farm for a winter break specifically because we were a large party and the photos showed a large living areas with fire place plus a smaller living area with wood-burning stove. Unfortunately the main living area fire place was capped off and from the review book appears to have been in that state since 2012, so the photos were misleading and we were disappointed in that respect. We made the most of the smaller living room, although couldn't accommodate our entire party in there so not quite the cosy communal evenings we had hoped for.
