9 holiday lets sleeping from 3 to 10

9 attractive courtyard cottages set within 5 acres of gardens and woodland in the grounds of fine C18th grade II listed country house.

The properties boast superb facilities - having shared access to an indoor heated swimming pool, hot tub and toddler pool. There is an all weather tennis court and a Finnish BBQ hut. The stable yard cottages also all have their own BBQs in the courtyard. Children will love exploring the grounds, discovering a climbing frame, swings, and even a hidden fort amongst the trees. Beyond the woodland there is a grassy lawn with a goal – perfect for a kick about.

The cottages are the former stables and out buildings of the former Rectory, Corffe House, and sleep 2-10. Clustered round a central courtyard, 8 of the 9 cottages are arranged as ‘upside down’ accommodation, with bedrooms on the ground floor. Delightfully furnished, the cottages are equipped with everything you need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The owners have tried to make it easy for families travelling with small children and can provide bath cots, high chairs, stair gates, step stool and toys & games. The cottages sleep 3,4, 6, 7,8 & 10.

Corffe House (sleeps 16+ 4) is also available to let . A graceful building dating from 1800, its Tuscan columns, high sash windows and galleried verandah speak of a more romantic age. A high tech cinema and pool room provides plenty of entertainment for rainy days and winter evenings. Please see our other listing for more details (link at bottom of this page).

Corffe is situated on the edge of the pretty village of Tawstock, 3 miles from the bustling riverside town of Barnstaple. The nearest beach is just 6 miles away but you will be spoilt for choice as North Devon is blessed with some magnificent beaches. Discover the great sandy expanses of Saunton Sands & Woolacombe and enjoy the blend of old world charm and surfing chic at Croyde. Nearby the Hartland Peninsula provides dramatic clifftop vistas, whilst Exmoor provides both rugged coastline and rolling moor - you’ll find hidden coves and harbour villages. For surfing head to Westward Ho!, Woolacombe, Saunton & Putsborough Sands.

There are plenty of family attractions nearby including the Atlantis Adventure Centre, The Big Sheep and The Milky Way. The Tarka Trail offers miles of traffic free cycling and of course the South West Coast Path provides jaw dropping scenery. Another wonderful way to explore North Devon’s magnificent coastline is by boat. Take a coastal cruise, kayak tour, fishing charter, or even a day trip to Lundy Island.

Adrenaline junkies should head for the Ultimate Adventure Centre for coasteering, assault course, high ropes, 8 metre climbing wall, mountain biking.
