One of three cottages on this working farm in North Devon, surrounded by idyllic villages and situated just eight miles from the traditional village of Clovelly on the Atlantic coast.

This property enjoys a wonderfully rural farmland location in the Devonshire countryside. The area immediately around the farm is full of quaint villages with welcoming pubs and picturesque scenery, but the property is not completely remote and there is plenty to see and do just a short drive away. The privately owned village of Clovelly, with its craft workshops, museum, fishing quay, and small beach is just eight miles away, whilst the attractive harbour town of Bideford with its range of independent shops and well regarded eateries is situated twelve miles to the north. For a fun family day out, The Big Sheep family fun park is a short drive away, and offers thrilling theme park rides alongside fun farm attractions such as sheep racing and tractor rides.

On arrival at this cottage, guests will find a delicious cream tea ready prepared for them in the kitchen. This space is well equipped with an oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and washer/dryer. The adjacent lounge/diner, provides a comfortable space in which to relax, with a dining table seating four, two sofas, a Freeview TV/DVD and hi-fi. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms. The first of these is a delightful double room with lovely wooden floors and coordinating pine furniture, whilst the second room is a restful bunk bedroom. There is also a shower room with shower cubicle and WC on this floor.

Outside, the property benefits from a private raised patio area to the front of the cottage, and guests are also welcome to explore much of the farm’s ten acres of land, where free range chickens and ducks roam. There is a fun children’s play area available for guests of all three properties to use, with, swings, a slide and climbing frame, and of course the wonderfully relaxing shared hot tub which is housed in its own covered barn, protecting it from the elements. Guests who would like to learn more about farm life are able to help collect eggs from the chickens. There is off-road parking provided, as well as a secure garage, perfect for storing bicycles, etc. Larger groups who are hiring more than one property, enjoy the added bonus of a detached family room with a TV, kitchen area, underfloor heating, and a cosy wood burner. DIY livery is available at an extra charge.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Nice quiet area and within easy reach of beaches and seaside towns. The cream tea was a nice touch and the hot tub was relaxing. Nice places to walk the dog and shops and cafes allowed dogs inside, very handy when the rain set in.

We had a wonderful 4 days at the cottage. Off the beaten track, it was an idyllic location, with peace and quiet. Outside on the rural country lane we found honeysuckle and foxgloves growing in the wild. We received a warm welcome, and the suggestion of eating in the local pub was well worth the visit. Central to the area we wanted to explore in noRead morerth Devon, and at the end of the day the hot tub was a delight. We will definitely think of returning here when we next plan to explore Devon.

Great ecklesworth hard to find very out of the way close to Bideford 30 mins but takes hour travelling to anywhere else not within walking distance of anywhere however very quiet and peaceful and relaxing. Both cottages need some TLC and great ecklesworth was definately not worth what I paid due to the many problems we had. Owners were away but KimRead more was excellent and very understanding cream tea and hot tub were a nice touch. However I would not return again as to far away from everything for me Hide
