Nestled within the heart of North Devon's rural 'Tarka the Otter' country in beautiful countryside, yet just 10 miles from the glorious North Devon coast, Stowford Lodge Holiday Cottages are the perfect choice for a relaxing holiday at any time of year. The four pretty barn conversions, Warren Cottage (ref UKC2098), Halcyon Cottage (ref UKC2099), Tarquol Cottage (ref UKC2100) and Old Nog Cottage (ref UKC2101) are terraced and sit within a courtyard, whilst Tarka's Holt Log Cabin (ref UKC2102) is detached, and all five enjoy use of the owner's 6 acres of private parkland comprising an orchard, with a spacious children's play area with swings and a climbing frame and animals to see including two Dartmoor ponies, sheep and hens. There's also a level 1-acre field with a football goal and rugby posts, which is also ideal for kite flying and cricket. The ideal choice for a romantic break for two or a family holiday, the cottages are close to a wooded walk amongst numerous young trees running alongside the pony and sheep field, and an indoor heated swimming pool which is open all year round.
The holiday cottages are 3 miles from Great Torrington, where shops, pubs, restaurants, a public indoor swimming pool, tennis courts and sports hall can be found. The stunning beaches of the North Devon coast are less than 10 miles away - with sailing, fishing and a sandy beach at Instow, surfing at Westward Ho!, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe, as well as lofty cliffs and headlands along the rocky fringes of Hartland. Lots of activities for friends and families nearby including golf, horse riding, sailing, fishing, shooting, cycle hire and walking. The Tarka Trail long distance footpath and cycle way passes within ¼ mile and the RHS gardens at Rosemoor are less than 2 miles away. The beautiful moorland areas of Exmoor and Dartmoor are also within easy reach. This picturesque location provides the perfect base for a leisurely and peaceful holiday, with many coastal, woodland and moorland walks in the surrounding area and many local places of interest to visit.
