A courtyard of luxury cottages with glorious sea views.The cottages are located on the tip of the Hartland Peninsula in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Charmingly situated they have glorious sea views looking north to Lundy Island and west over the Atlantic.They are set in the midst of rolling farm land that slopes gently to the coast. In the distance the stone tower of St. Nectan's Church rises above the picturesque village of Stoke.. All around is peace and tranquillity.The sea, Berry Cove and the North Devon Coastal Path are a brief walk away along a quiet single track road. Hartland, an unspoilt North Devon village, is a mile away.The immediate area is ideal for walkers and cyclists with a maze of footpaths and single tract lanes on the doorstep. The cliff top walks are simply stunning and lead you to secluded cove after cove.Ideal for couples and families.

Had a brilliant holiday staying at Downe Cottages. Perfect location for rock climbing and bouldering, with lots of crags nearby. It’s just a quick walk to the coast path, with the dramatic cliffs the ideal spot to watch the sunset from. Amazing for surfing as well, with a surf

We have really enjoyed our stay at Downe Cottages. The location allows for quick access to rock climbing, surfing and running along the beautiful coast path. It is great to be able to head out for the day safe in the knowledge that a warm, comfortable cottage awaits our return.

Hi, I have just seen your question and apologise for the delay in replying. All cars are parked in a very large Atcost Barn on site. This means that all cars have undercover parking which can be closed in bad weather and which is lit by movement sensitive lights as cars come and go at night. In addition it means that none of the cottages overlook a car park which is a common problem in complexes. The cars are hidden so that even in full season it seems as though the complex is deserted. Hope that helps. Jeremy

Thank you for your enquiry. Sorry to be so long getting back to you. I'm afraid we no longer take dogs at Downe, but if you would like to visit without your pets at any time, please do ask again. Sincerely Claire Cook
