Charming West Down House, near Bradworthy in Devon, has three enchanting self-catering holiday cottages and one apartment.

Dating from the sixteenth century the manor house is off the beaten track set in 5½ acres of lovely gardens amongst beautiful rolling countryside in this peaceful and unspoilt corner of rural north Devon and Cornwall.

West Down House is close to some of the most spectacular coastline in the UK that offers breathtaking scenery, unspoilt beaches and stunning coastal path walks.

Bradworthy village, of Saxon origin, with pub, shops and garage (fuel) is just over one mile. Bude, a family seaside resort with sandy beaches, rockpools and surfing is 10 miles and the rural market town of Holsworthy is 8 miles. Clovelly the famous village and harbour quaintly nestling in steep cliffs and Hartland Abbey (location for BBC's 2008 Sense & Sensibility drama) and are both 9 miles.

Beaches, walking, cycling, watersports, swimming, golf and riding are available nearby. There are many fascinating local attractions and day trips for visitors.

Our other holiday cottage, Victorian Smithy Cottage, is at the pretty village of Abbotsham near Bideford also in North Devon.

All accommodation is non-smoking, pet-free and is maintained to a high standard and is inspected annually by our agents.
