With a view over a secluded valley, this cottage is just 8 miles from Woolacombe’s long sandy beach.

With a view over a secluded valley, this cottage is just 8 miles from Woolacombe’s long sandy beach.

Overlooking a secluded valley, just 8 miles from Woolacombe’s long sandy beach, these four superb holiday properties each enjoy their own enclosed garden area, and are peacefully set down a mile long made-up private road. Close to the owner’s home, they have been imaginatively and beautifully converted from former farm buildings, incorporating glass frontages to take advantage of the lovely views over the stream-bordered paddocks which lead to beautiful woodland walks. Children love getting to know the bunch of friendly animals, which include miniature ponies and donkeys, llamas, pet sheep and small flock of traditional breed hens.
Perfect for a relaxing holiday, the area holds a wealth of attractions. The ancient town of Barnstaple, with its Domesday associations, lies just 5 miles distant. Here the visitor can find a good selection of shops, restaurants, museums, a theatre and various sporting facilities, not to mention a 14th-century parish church, a fascinating Heritage Centre and a daily Pannier Market. For watersports enthusiasts, the beautiful beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde Bay and Saunton Sands are a must, affording some of the finest windsurfing in Devon, as well as being a haven for sunbathers and sandcastle builders. Wonderful walking and riding can be enjoyed in the nearby Exmoor National Park (6 miles), where red deer roam the rugged moors and magnificent sea views can be admired from lofty cliffs and headlands.
Among the many places to visit within a 5 mile radius are Arlington Court National Trust, with its collection of model ships and Victorian accessories, and Marwood Hill Gardens, complete with its string of lakes, rare shrubs and exotic trees. The resorts of Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, Lynton and Lynmouth are also easily accessible, each offering its own blend of seaside charm. Golf and sailing, 8 miles. Shops 5 miles, pub 3 miles.
Wheelhouse (ref HMQ), Woodland View (ref HMR), Valley View (ref HMS) and The Linhay (ref UKC3306) can be booked together to accommodate up to 20 guests.

    We had a great family holiday at the wheelhouse cottage, plenty of space for the 6adults and 3children under 5years old. It was good to be able to park 3cars and still have plenty of outdoor space for the children to play safely. Beautiful house in a good location for beaches and very quiet, lovely welcome with the cream tea. The animals were an extra treat for the children & the adults. The only negative comment is that it was a shame that the children’s play house in the shared area was not in a better state of repair.

    Excellent accommodation, very well appointed and roomy, we felt comfortable and at home from day one. The kitchen is great and a really good place for the family to socialise. The setting is superb and our 2 year old granddaughter loved the chickens. The location is quite remote, but we were aware of this anyway, still quite handy for Ifracombe and Barnstable though.

    We stayed at the wheelhouse over the easter break and had a great time. The house is very well equipped and feels like a comfortable home from home. The kitchen had everything we needed along with a good sized table for the family to get around. We arrived to scones, clotted cream, fresh eggs and a bottle of wine which was a very kind touch. The children loved the animals and we found the wheelhouse to be a very relaxing place to be. We will certainly be back!

    We (a 5 and 8 year old, parents and two grandparents) had a lovely week at Wheelhouse. Cottage very clean and a lovely welcoming gift of fresh scones, cream and jam as well as fresh eggs from the owners’ chickens and a bottle of red wine. Facilities excellent with high standards of cleanliness. Very helpful selection of leaflets advertising local tourist attractions and reliable WiFi signal to allow more detailed research where required. Children loved the animals especially the alpacas and owners were very kind in allowing them to help feed the chickens and put the larger animals in bed. Beds comfy with lovely powerful showers. Only thing missing was a potato peeler but kitchen otherwise well stocked. Would definitely recommend to others especially those with young children who are fond of animals.
