This tiny cottage is a great bolt hole in the countryside close to the beautiful North Devon coast and the South West Coast Path. The Tack Room is one of five characterful holiday cottages converted from farm buildings on the unspoiled Hartland Peninsula, close to the border of North Devon and Cornwall. It has a galley kitchen and a bedroom with en-suite shower room; everything you need for a cosy self-catering stay. And guests have the use of the on-site, indoor hot tub and sauna, bookable for private use (generally available from Easter to October). Outside you can relax in the small sunny seating area, and are welcome to use the meadow/play area with its picnic tables.
Everyone's invited to join in with feeding the owners' animals - chickens, ducks and pigs - each morning.
So close to probably the most dramatic stretch of the South West Coast Path, this is a fabulous area for walking - for cream teas and gardens - and for cycling, sailing, surfing and fishing too. The closest beaches, at Berry and Hartland Quay - with its friendly pub - are craggily beautiful, often deserted and great for rock pooling and adventurous swimming. Within half an hour's drive south are the beauty spots of Welcombe Mouth, Morwenstow and Sandy Mouth with its long sandy beach. And there are more surfing and boarding beaches at Bude and Widemouth Bay. To the north are the picturesque, steeply cobbled village of Clovelly, the vast beach at Westward Ho! and the pretty coastal estuary towns of Appledore, and Instow. Hartland village, with its shops, pubs, café, potteries and crafts, is a 20-minute walk through woodland. Hartland Abbey Gardens are a 10-minute stroll.
