We had a fantastic weekend down at the farm, we cycled , walked, checked out places to bring the children next time we visit, there are so many! Had two fab nights out in local pubs, one had a brilliant live band! Accommodation was to a high standard and beautifully clean, felt very homely with fresh scones when we arrived!...

Just returned from February half term break at Widmouth Farm. Our cottage was newly renovated and of a very high standard. Our children loved feeding the animals - particularly the goats and alpacas and we all enjoyed the private beach - even body boarding in February! Highly recommend as great location to explore North Devon. We will definitely be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Widmouth Farm Cottages is between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin, the gateway to Exmoor, on the North Devon coast. We have spectacular views overlooking wonderful Watermouth Cove and 35 acres of headland, woodland and a private beach on the Devon National Heritage Coastline. Widmouth Farm Cottages is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, and offers the perfect self catering holiday for families and people of all ages. Our private beach is just 500 yards from the cottages and a two minute walk through the sheep fields! It is large and sandy for about 2 hours either side of low tide. Our regular visitors return to our self-catering holiday cottages to walk, fish, play golf, kayak, horse ride, use our lovely beach or simply relax in this peaceful, tranquil setting. We are also only six miles from Woolacombe Beach, voted the UKs best beach for the second year running! Children are welcome and so are dogs. We have regular animal feeding & handling sessions for visitors who wish to join in. This usually includes the sheep, goats, alpacas, pigs, chickens, ducks. For the keen fisherman, it is the perfect place to find some hidden spots, with our private beach or beautiful coastline there are plenty of places to find peace and quiet and fish until your hearts content!!! ... more   less
