Yenworthy Cottage is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded rocky beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path which runs through the farm. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow. A haven for wildlife, it has four Sites of Special Scientific Interest. There are rare species of butterflies and trees, large areas of heather moorland and impressive cliff geology. Entrance to the property is via the large porch into the hallway, both providing plenty of space for wellies and walking boots! The sitting/dining room has two comfortable sofas, wood-burner and dining table with six chairs.

Fantastic location. Stunning scenery. Ideal for walkers and dog owners. We will miss walking up the hill and sitting in the field looking over to Wales. Of course the terrific weather helps but a great holiday enjoyed by all
