This property enjoys a tranquil rural location on a working beef and sheep farm, and offers scenic countryside walks directly from the cottage’s front door. One of these walks, a pleasant forty-minute woodland route, brings visitors to the seaside village of Lee Bay, with its small sandy beach, rocky cove, and village pub, which prides itself on serving local ales and organic wine, as well as offering traditional Devonshire cream teas, alongside a more traditional pub menu. The popular sandy beach at Woolacombe is just two miles away, and other family-friendly beaches, such as Croyde and Saunton Sands are within easy reach. Other attractions in the local area include the Combe Martin Wildlife Park, Exmoor National Park, and the South West Coast Path which is just over a mile from the cottage. And don't forget to explore the Tarka Trail by bicycle which runs directly through the farm. Best of all, right on your door step the owners have a sheepdog and falconry display (June to August) and farmyard shows (July to August). More details can be requested on booking.

This quaint cottage is entered via the front door into an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with comfortable sofa and armchairs arranged around the Smart TV/DVD. The dining table, seating four, is situated in the window, offering lovely views over the farmland and the surrounding countryside, whilst the kitchen area is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge freezer and washing machine. Steep, cottage-style stairs lead to the bedrooms on the first floor. The first of these is a restful super-king size zip and link bed (can be a twin on request)  whilst the second bedroom is a bunk bedroom. The modern shower room is also on the first floor, and offers a shower and WC.

Outside, there is a lawned garden with seating and a BBQ, which makes a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, and the views across to the bay and even across to South Wales on a fine day.

Lovely cottage with everything you need. Fantastic location, local attractions within easy reach (Woolacombe Beach, Watermouth Castle, Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway, Lynton & Barnstaple Railway). Great for exploring the countryside - you can go for a nice walk through the woods to Lee Bay straight from the cottage. Very quiet with a lovely gardenRead more perfect for a dog to have some freedom. Amazing views from the dining area. Hide

We are becoming regular visitirs to North Devon and hope to become regular visitors to Borough Valley Cottage in particular. The property is light, airy and very comfortable in all respects with everything we needed for our stay. The location was perfect, both as a relaxing space in itself but also as a base for exploring further afield. The KennarRead mored family are delightful and we enjoyed meeting them. The sheepdog show was a highlight. Thank you for a week that passed all too quickly! Hide

Borough Farm Cottage is a quaint, beautiful cottage with amazing views of the countryside with not another building to be seen for miles, and in the distance the sea, which can also be heard.
