Farm cottage situated in the picturesque Borough Valley in North Devon, with far-reaching sea views, and within walking distance of the dramatic beach at Lee Bay.

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, The Grampus, 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 information can be found on the owners website at www.boroughfarm.co.uk.

This quaint cottage is entered via the front door into an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with comfortable sofa and armchairs arranged around the 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 and washing machine. Steep, cottage-style stairs lead to the bedrooms on the first floor.

We could not fault either the cottage or the location. We had 4 days of perfect peace and quiet, just walking in the beautiful countryside of North Devon. The cottage has everything you could ever need on holiday and our hosts were such very nice, friendly people. We will definitely be returning!

A lovely cottage with beautiful views of the countryside, spotless and comfortable. The owners are friendly and helpful, and made every effort to ensure we had everything we needed. The private garden is perfect for a barbeque and enjoying the sunset. Overall, we had a fantastic time and can highly recommend this cottage!

This is a wonderful cottage on a fabulous working farm with a warm welcome from the owners. Ideally situated for exploring the Exmoor National Park, North Devon coast line and beaches. This was our third year at this cottage and it will not be our last!

Lovely cottage, quite small but very cosy. The master bed was amazing and the shower etc very good quality. The family that run the farm were all very friendly and kind, we were left to ourselves which is how we like it but in the occasions we crossed paths they were lovely people.

An excellent cottage in a beautiful location. This is the second time we have stayed at the property and it will not be our last. Mr and Mrs Kennard are very welcoming and the home made cake and organic eggs upon arrival were a perfect touch.
