Two cosy cottages in a cluster with others close to Hartland Abbey and a heart-thumpingly wild stretch of the South West Coast Path

Read guest comments

An easy-going, secluded place for country lovers to unwind, with or without children and dogs. Come for simple things: silence, clean Atlantic air, star-gazy skies and Scrabble by the fire. Walkers love the wild, craggy beauty of the South West Coast Path around the Hartland Peninsula, surfers take to the waves at the slightest opportunity, everyone gathers at Hartland Quay, for sunsets, swimming, and a pint at The Wreckers. You return to cosy cottages with wood-burners and plenty of space to sit and gaze out to the sea beyond St Nectan’s church tower. Both are traditionally good looking with proper kitchens and bathrooms, seaside touches and books and games in case of rain. Grown ups will enjoy the hot tub after a day of walking, children will adore the playground and helping to feed the chickens and ducks. There’s plenty to visit: Hartland Abbey and gardens, galleries - cream tea rooms of course - steeply cobbled Clovelly, and Lundy Island - a helicopter hop from the Point or a boat trip from Bideford. Kind owners live in the big house next door and if you want a wider family get-together there are other cottages too.

  • One of the most beautiful and dramatic stretches of the 630-mile South West Coast Path runs close by (about a 20-minute walk away) and we’re in a great spot for walkers to complete the sections from Westward Ho! to Bude
  • The beach at Hartland Quay is brilliant for rock-pooling, with sand at low tide. Other beaches on the Peninsula are wilder, wonderfully craggy and trickier to get to. For vast stretches of sand head south for SandyMouth and Bude, north to Northam
  • Hartland with its pubs, café, small shops and potteries is a 30-minute cross-country walk away. You can walk too to Pattard Kitchen our nearest gastro-eatery. And in the extraordinary setting of Hartland Quay is the friendly Wreckers Retreat pub
  • Visit Hartland Abbey and Gardens - a short off-road stroll away - and walk through the grounds and bluebell woods to the sea. Nearby Docton Mill Gardens are charming too and the RHS garden at Rosemoor is inspirational , as is Tapely Park, near Instow
  • The Burton Art Gallery in Bideford has the Ackland and Edwards Collection (the artists Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards spent much time painting in the Cabin at Bucks Mills) and the Bideford Heritage Collection (and a good café).
  • 30-or so miles of the Tarka Trail between Braunton and Meeth are open to cyclists. The trail runs on disused railway tracks and provides a safe and pretty easy-going route through the North Devon countryside.

"Me, my husband and our German Shepard had an absolutely fantastic stay in these lovely cottages. Annie and her husband was the kindest and most helpful hosts and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The scones and clotted cream as a welcome made the start feel so special. It is so easy to walk to town and around. We did some stunning walks and they even drove us to make certain journey easier. Got to say hi to their beautiful pigs and ended the nights with hot sauna, jacuzzi and wine by the fireplace. An absolute blizz. Looking forward to go back!"

"We had a wonderfully relaxing stay for 5 nights in April with one of the warmest welcomes we have ever received. Still warm fresh baked scones and clotted cream, fresh cut flowers and Annie was most helpful in recommending places to visit and what do do. The cottages were stunning and it was a truly blissful stay in a beautiful part of Devon. Myself, my 6 months pregnant girlfriend and Springer Spaniel will certainly be back! We can't recommend it enough."

"Our stay at the Milky Parlour was delightful! We were warmly welcomed by Annie who took her time to recommend some places for us to visit. The sitting room is very cosy and warm, with its log fire, the bedrooms very comfortable. There is a terrace overlooking the endless garden that, if you are lucky, will offer you a breathtaking view of the sunset. We had such a lovely time walking along the coastline and saw stunning places thanks to Annie’s great knowledge of the area. We cannot wait to come back!"
