This property is a perfect family retreat boasting lovely country views and a private garden unwind in together.

Close to coast

A tranquil retreat amidst glorious countryside, and just 3 miles from the breathtaking North Devon coast and the wide golden sandy beach of Westward Ho! and the attractive old port of Bideford, with its pastel coloured houses alongside a tree lined quay. These three delightful, 17th-century cob and stone barns have been stylishly converted to a superb standard and offer the perfect holiday choice for a romantic escape or a family gathering. Each of these spacious properties has its own private garden and lovely country views. There are footpaths from the door, a village shop and choice of inns within 2 miles.

Take a boat trip from Bideford to the nature reserve at Lundy Island, or explore many pretty fishing villages including nearby Clovelly and Appledore. Instow, 3 miles, is a pretty, unspoilt, seaside village with large stretches of sandy beaches and dunes, fishermen’s cottages, shops and a good selection of pubs and restaurants specialising in locally caught seafood. The famous Tarka Trail is located nearby and offers good walking and cycling with bike hire available. There are numerous National Trust properties in the area including Arlington and Hartland Abbey, as well as the RHS Gardens at Rosemoor and Docton Mill. Hartland Quay and lighthouse are well worth a visit, and for family fun, The Big Sheep and The Milky Way adventure parks are close by.

Golf, riding, fishing, surfing, mountain boarding, karting and high ropes are available locally, and the wild beauty of Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin moors are all within easy driving distance, as is the famous Eden Project. With so much to discover in this lovely part of North Devon, Winscott Barton Barns is the perfect holiday choice. Shop, pub and restaurants 2 miles.

    Lovely cottage. Difficult roads to the property. Would benefit from wifi as phone signal poor

    An excellent cottage in superb surroundings. I've rented cottages for forty plus years and would rate this one at top of scale. The finish and workmanship is astounding down to the provision of steak knives and pastry forks, what a treat! We were made very welcome by Tracey the owner and provided with a Devon cream tea, very welcome after a 480 mile drive. Beautiful house in magnificent surroundings!

    The cottage was beautiful, the owners have done the most amazing job renovating it. Felt like a home from home. Everything you need is there. The location is amazing, beautiful rolling countryside yet within 5-10 minutes of loads of amenities. So many things to do close by for all ranges of family ages.

    The cottage had everything you could want, lovely secluded location, but a short drive to shops and pubs. Tumbledown Cottage was wonderfully restored and made our week in Devon very comfortable and enjoyable. Lucy our 10 year old loved the trampoline and making friends with the cats!
