Cottage
Lake Villa Holiday Cottages and Hidden Lakes are situated in rural north Devon just three miles form the cornish border. If you want a peaceful location, with lots of outdoor space, dark night skies, and a 20 minute drive to some of the best beaches in the uk...then this is the property for you. We have hosted many family holidays, celebrations, birthday gatherings and party weekends (out of season) The three cottages sleep up to 7, 5, and 2, so a total of 14 plus cots. There is a flower-filled courtyard and parking right outside plus access to the lovely gardens and tennis court. 200 metres away is our own mini nature reserve, our 6 acre meadow and 2 lakes, one for fishing, a bbq and a fire pit is available along with a cabin to make yourselves a cuppa in. Children and pets are welcome. ...Lake Villa Holiday Cottages and Hidden Lakes are situated in rural north Devon just three miles form the cornish border.

As well as our own facilities (mentioned above), the best of the South West’s beaches are within 10 miles. The coast path, running the entire way around the south west peninsula is within 7 miles and offers spectacular walking. The Tamar Lakes are 3 miles away with kayaking, wind surfing and bird watching. The Tarka Trail, an off-road cycle track, is 7 miles away. We can organise clay pigeon shooting and archery, all in the area. The village of Bradworthy is less than half a mile away and has a pub (child and dog friendly) serving food everyday, a tea rooms and several shops. More
