Situated on a quiet street in the village of Stoke less than 1 mile from the South West Coast Path, this fantastic property promises a truly wonderful family holiday for guests. Charming and welcoming with lots of period features, this thatched home is the ideal spot for a relaxing break away from busy life yet still has plenty to keep you occupied. After a swim in the indoor heated swimming pool, take a walk up to beautiful Hartland Abbey, just half a mile away.

Whether you’re playing table football in the games room or reading a good book on the sofa in the snug, everyone will find their favourite corner here. The interiors boast stunning original exposed stone and wood beams, quirky uneven walls and soothing pastel colours; get cosy in the lounge area after a long day and snuggle up on the sofa in front of the wood burner. The bedrooms are bright and airy, perfect for a peaceful night’s sleep to feel refreshed and ready to take on the day; head down to the courtyard with your morning coffee and watch the morning unfold over the church tower and valley.

Learn about Hartland Quay’s rich maritime history, and stop for lunch at the pub. The wonderful beaches in Bude (15.5 miles) are all worth a visit but Summerleaze (16 miles) is a firm favourite. Adrenaline junkies will love the Milky Way Adventure Park’s rides (6.5 miles) and the Tamar Lakes Activity Centre, (13.5 miles) where you can try kayaking, windsurfing and canoeing. Dress up in gnome hats and go searching for gnomes and pixies through the Gnome Reserve’s wildflower meadows and woodland (11.5 miles).
