Conveniently placed on the Devon/Cornwall border, this is an ideal location for a seaside holiday or a relaxing escape at any time of year. The coastline in both directions offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in the west country and there are many long sandy beaches and hidden coves to explore.
Surrounded by farmland and open fields, with lovely walks from the doorstep, this delightful barn conversion enjoys panoramic coastal and sea views over open fields from the living room, which is situated upstairs. Nestled within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, within the grounds of the owners home, the pretty beach at Welcombe Mouth is less than 1 mile away and is a mixture of sand and rock pools. Take a break from the cooking with an evening in the character thatched village pub which is perfect for families and is renowned for its food.
A shared ½-acre play area at the front of the cottages is the ideal place for little ones to let off steam with an enclosed lawn complete with swings, slide, Wendy house and other play equipment.
Picturesque Clovelly, with its cobbled street leading down to a tiny harbour is just a short drive away. Historic Bideford, a prosperous port during the heyday of trade with America has a good selection of town amenities, restaurants, a weekly market and boat trips to Lundy Island. Bude, 8 miles, has a good selection of shops and restaurants, many specialising in locally caught sea food, along with a golf course, indoor ‘Splash’ pool, surf schools and bowling. Coastal walking, cycling, golf, riding, fishing, surfing and sailing are all available in this stunning area. Docton Mill, Hartland Quay and Hartland Abbey are close by, 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 1 mile. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Old Mill House. It could have done with an indoor clothes horse and sweeping brush, but other than that it’s a really nice property. Perfect for children in a beautiful, quiet and unspoilt part of the country. Owners were helpful and friendly. We spent most of the week walking, chilling on the beach and in the hot tub. If this is your thing, then I would definitely recommend staying here.

    The house was nice however was different from expectations as was slightly different to photos. There was no interactions with the hosts throughout the time, only a bottle of Chardonnay and a cake was left by them. It lacked a welcome guide or any house instructions in terms of how to use the heating as it was freezing for the 4 nights we stayed. Only the under floor heating worked. The website failed to say it was joined to other houses, which were incredibly loud as you could hear every footstep and action by them. The residents were extremely loud every night around 11pm-after midnight and woke us up with, what only I can describe as, a murderous scream, followed by laughter and chat. The residents would’ve known that the end cottage is rented accommodation and that we were clearly there but there was no respect or courtesy in regards to the noise level. The hot tub was a nice touch, however felt extremely exposed as it was surrounded by low fences in what felt like someone’s back garden. - You can be seen in the hot tub from the play area / the car park as is it is all shared by the other two houses that are joined to the cottage. Overal would not return nor recommend.

    We had a wonderful time at The Old Mill House. The house was homely and comfortable and the hot tub was an excellent bonus. The local area is stunning with beautiful walks from the doorstep across countryside to the local beaches. We would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

    We had a pleasant stay at the old mill house!! Highly recommend for a very quiet get away to the point there no signal on our phone which was just what we wanted!! Photos don’t do the property justice it’s a very well presented country property with stunning views!! The safety for the children and play area was great. We had arrived very late on the Friday which we made the owners aware wasn’t a issue at all they left the key & lights on with a package welcome on our table of 4 hot cross buns & a bottle of wine. We adventured out to Hartland any destination felt like it was in the middle of no mans land with beautiful views on arrival we highly recommend that walk also a cheeky stop on route back to the Rectory Farm for a delicious cream tea all of the surrounding areas was roughly 10-15miles away from the old mill house including a local gagare. Overall our stay was pleasant but it’s definitely how you make it we a young family of 5 with children of the age 9,8,4 and I would highly recommend it if your into this kind of thing.

    Cottage was neat and tidy but basic, none of the little extras, ie DVDs, games books Rang owners beforehand and was told it would be open when I arrived, I never actually saw the owners during my 5 day stay

    Loved our stay here, it is in the middle of no where which can be great The house was immaculate, the views were amazing and as long as you don’t mind driving to get to a good beech it’s brilliant. Also if you want a quiet place with beautiful walks it’s also amazing The owners were very nice, and the car parking was brilliant. Our children loved the garden and hot tub too.

    The cottage is cozy but comfortably fitted our family of 5. The garden/play area is enclosed so the children could play out on there own which was great. Location wise the cottage is off the beaten track which is what we wanted but you need to drive to get anywhere. Bude is only 15 minutes away and there are some lovely local pubs close by. Perfect if you really want to escape and spend some time with the family.

    Really enjoyed our stay at the Old Mill House. Lovely quiet location with great views from upstairs lounge. The property is well equipped with everything necessary and the owners kindly provide cleaning products. This residence is perfect for a family - plenty of safe space for children to play and eat outdoors. We were lucky to find this hidden gem with availability at this time of year and would highly recommend it . We never made use of the hot tub as we filled each day visiting local attractions but it was well maintained by the owners.
