Hartland is a lovely place to visit. Our cottage is located on the side of a valley. We have an orchard, paddock, and ancient woodland that guests are welcome to walk around. Our nearest neighbour is on the opposite side of the valley. It all makes a lovely, peaceful setting. The perfect place for getting away from the hustle and bustle of modern life! Very little light pollution means that the cottage is great for star gazing. You feel as though you can almost touch the stars.
We are located very close to the stunning Devon coastline. There is a lovely trail that leads down to Mouth Mill Beach, a distance of just over a kilometre.
Hartland is a fantastic place to visit, and is a walker's paradise. Hartland resides inside an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty: part of the UNESCO North Devon Biosphere. There many contrasting environments nearby, with four Sites of Special Scientific Interest: ancient woodlands, moorland, and heath.
The cottage allows easy access to the South West Coast Path, which follows some of the most stunning coastline in the UK. We can arrange for collection and drop off of luggage for walkers exploring the path in stages. The area is synonymous with smuggling, and many ships were wrecked off the jagged shoreline. Hartland Lighthouse and The Wreckers Museum can be found along the coast path.
There are also many other local walks and heritage trails nearby. Indeed, Hartland is part of the "Walkers Are Welcome" network of towns and villages. Our quiet country lanes are ideal for walking or cycling.
Hartland itself is a quiet, rural village with a long history. For the modern traveller, there is a small shop, post office (with cash machine inside), doctors' surgery, vets, fish & chip shop, and several pubs. For the more artistically inclined, the village has numerous artisans: potteries, art gallery, wood carving, and photographer.
Close by is St. Nectan's Church, Hartland Abbey, Lavender Tea Rooms, Docton Mill, and the Wreckers' Retreat, where you can enjoy a meal and drink whilst watching the fantastic sight of Atlantic rollers crashing onto the rugged coastline.
There are plenty of fine inns and restaurants in the locality, so you definitely won’t go hungry.
Almost on our doorstep is the world re-known village of Clovelly, with its steep cobbled streets seemingly frozen in time.
Just off the coast lies Lundy Island, England's only Marine Nature Reserve. The island can by visited in the summer months by passenger ferry, or otherwise by helicopter.
The cottage makes an ideal base for exploring North Devon and Cornwall, located only a couple of miles from the Devon / Cornwall border. The Atlantic Highway is only a ten minute drive away. This allows easy access to the ancient maritime port of Bideford, Barnstaple, and Bude; the Atlantic Village shopping outlet; children's attractions such as The Big Sheep, Milky Way, and Funder Zone; Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks; and other attractions such as the Eden Project.
Need I go on? You won’t find yourself with nothing to do whilst visiting us! Getting AroundDue to our rural setting, the best way to get here and explore the area is by car. Hartland is easily accessed by the M5 motorway, A361 crossing by Exmoor National Park, and the A39 Atlantic Highway.
There is a bus service between Hartland, Bideford, Barnstaple and Bude. However the service is somewhat infrequent.
Barnstaple can be reached by National Express coaches and by rail via the First Great Western rail network. We can organise collection and drop off of guests in Barnstaple who wish to travel here that way.
The nearest regional airports are Exeter (71 miles) and Bristol (104 miles). The M4 motorway enables easy travel to the south west from Heathrow International Airport (218 miles).
