Description

Curlew Cottage is the perfect choice for a family seaside holiday or a couple’s escape at any time of year. This spacious terraced cottage sits in a central location within easy walking distance of everything the pretty North Devon town of Bideford has to offer. Lovely estuary views from one of the bedrooms, and the living area and kitchen means that even on a dull day you can sit and soak up ambience. The sunny rear garden is ideal for a lazy breakfast overlooking the estuary while your plan your day. On the doorstep there is plenty to see and do with the famous Tarka Trail passing close by for walking or cycling, or why not stroll around the many delightful shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants that Bideford has to offer, with its regular pannier and water front markets, all within a 10-minute walk of the property.
Take a boat trip to the nature reserve at Lundy Island or explore many pretty fishing villages including nearby Clovelly and Appledore which is one of the oldest and prettiest villages in North Devon with its myriad of narrow streets, quaint cottages, pubs, restaurants, craft shops, art galleries and the bustling quayside. Instow is just 3 miles and is a pretty, unspoilt, seaside village with large stretches of sandy beaches and dunes, fishermen’s cottages, shops and a good selection of pubs and restaurants specialising in locally caught seafood. The wide golden sandy beach of Westward Ho! popular with surfers, is just 3 miles with Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe all close by. RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Docton Mill and Hartland Abbey are well worth a visit. The area is a must for water sports, sailing enthusiasts, surfers and fishermen.

For family fun, The Big Sheep, The Milky Way Adventure Park, Ultimate Adventure Centre and North Devon Wakepark for water sports fun are close by. Golf, Mountain boarding, karting, and high ropes are available locally and the wild beauty of Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moors are all within easy driving distance, as is the famous Eden Project.

A lovely base for our very enjoyable visit to N Devon! Very clean, nicely presented and decorated. Bedrooms are spacious with excellent beds. Though tiny, the kitchen had all we needed and more. The garden is not large but is pretty, with plenty of decent seating/sun umbrella/table. It's a scant 10 minute easy walk into Bideford town centre. Being away from the centre meant that traffic near the cottage is less noisy. Easy access to bus travel and the A39, which seems to be the main road for travel along the coast. While our hosts had kindly left a folder with some local info, it would have been useful to have had more information on local walks and places to visit, and on public transport. The 17 year old in our group bemoaned the lack of internet access but the adults didn't miss it at all! Bideford is not particularly touristy so it was always easy to get into restaurants - unlike nearby Ilfracombe and other beauty spots. Be prepared for the steep hills. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed staying in Curlew Cottage and would like to return.

Area Details

Bideford

The historic maritime town of Bideford lies on the River Torridge on the North Devon Coast and makes for an excellent base to explore this area of Devon. With a great selection of shops, cafés, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants you won't need to leave the town for anything but there is so much to see and do in the area you will surely want to. Just a couple of miles away is Westward Ho!, with 2 miles of spectacular coastline and a Blue Flag awarded sandy beach. Just sit and enjoy the views or perhaps make a sandcastle or partake in one of the many water-based activities on offer including surfing. The walking is especially good around here with both the South West Coast Path and the Tarka Trail within easy reach. North Burrows Country Park provides 253 hectares of diverse landscapes to enjoy while the award-winning Big Sheep all-weather family attraction and the Ultimate Adventure Centre are just 1 mile away. In summary, this area offers so much for all ages with breathtaking scenery thrown in for free!
