All sit in the midst of rolling farmland that slopes gently to the coast.

Downe Cottages provide the perfect base for walking and cycling holidays or romantic retreats.\n\nDowne is first noted in Parish Records in the 1480s when the farmhouse would have been no more than an open stone animal shelter with the family living above. In the 16th century the original open barn was converted into the farmers’ living quarters. The 1700s saw the addition of a first floor and some of the ceiling beams had been gathered from shipwrecks. Then during the 18th century a large working kitchen was added with a further barn being added in the 19th century. Moving on to the 1900s dog kennels were a further addition. In the 1990s Downe comprised of the main farmhouse a Grade ll listed building and a series of semi-derelict farm buildings. These were formerly stables a groom’s cottage a threshing barn cattle barn hayloft a chapel like building a garage and a farmworker’s cottage.\n\nDowne Cottages are just 1 mile from the South West Coastal Path and half a mile to the south west lies Hartland Abbey. In the distance the stone tower of St Nectan’s Church rises above the picturesque village of Stoke. The sea Berry Cove and the South West Coastal Path are a mile’s walk away along a quiet single-track road and a small footpath. The unspoilt village of Hartland is a mile away either by road or by footpaths that take you along the side of a small river through the picturesque vale. The historic village of Clovelly is 6 miles away. This is a perfect spot at any time of year with fishing golf horse riding surfing sailing and walking all available nearby. RHS Rosemoor Gardens Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are within an easy drive along with many pretty fishing villages to explore including nearby Instow and Appledore. For families with young children the Big Sheep and Milky Way adventure parks are a must. Beach 1 mile. Shop and pub 1 mile. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/137/840/1378116.jpg UKC2238

A lovely place where nothing was too much trouble. Hard to find a property that fitted the needs of the whole family but this came up trumps. Location and quality of the fixtures and fittings were top notch. The spa and gym was a great hit with my sons who made full use of the facilities. Would highly recommend.
