About the property
INSPIRATIONAL COASTAL SETTING WING OF 17th CENTURY FORTIFIED FARMHOUSE.
The delightful character farmhouse was built in 1627, steeped in history and listed in the Doomsday Book. It offers a stunning rural retreat in the heart of a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestled in a spectacular cliff-top location with breath-taking views across rolling countryside towards the Atlantic Ocean, Lundy Island and the South West Coast Path. Located 3 miles from the busy village of Hartland, and within easy walking distance of Hartland Point and Quay along the unspoilt coastal footpaths.
Guests can explore this busy working beef, sheep & arable farm and enjoy the wonderful walks particularly in the cliff meadows only 2 minutes from the house. The entire peninsular is SSSI graded (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and great for bird watching, fauna, flora and wildlife enthusiasts. If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful location, the wide, sandy beaches and amenities around Bude or Bideford are within a 20 minute drive and are perfect for those that enjoy sunbathing or surfing. There is also Clovelly which is well worth a visit, with its steep cobbled streets leading down to a pretty harbour and nearby Instow & Appledore hosting a variety of eateries, galleries, fishing trips, delis & bars. Visit a wealth of coastal towns, gardens, golf courses, cycle paths, and restaurants. At the end of the day, you can relax in the sheltered courtyard garden or stroll to the cliffs, watch the sunset and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. The farm offers the perfect location for cyclists, surfers, dog walkers and nature lovers.
