About this Property

Bowood Farm is ideally located for touring the North Devon and Cornish coastline. The three attractive cottages have all been restored and renovated, each retaining their own character. They adjoin the farmhouse and are within the farm's south facing courtyard and set amongst peaceful open countryside with fine views and nine acres of fields to be explored. For the energetic, it is only two miles from the dramatic coastal path and quayside of Bideford, with tennis, golf and indoor swimming; for the children, Westward Ho! with its superb sandy beach is just 3 miles away; for the gardening enthusiasts, Rosemoor R.H.S. is a mere 10 miles and for walkers and riders Exmoor beckons from 19 miles. The added attractions of Atlantic Village, Clovelly and The Big Sheep are all close by as well and only a five minute stroll brings you to the village with church, post office and thatched pub. Guests to Bowood Farm Cottages have the use of a covered Dutch barn, provided with table tennis table, pool table and badminton net (equipment provided) and a cream tea awaits visitors.
