A large 2 bed cottage (sleeps 4+2), log burner and sunny south facing enclosed garden, that opens onto fields with fire pit, sunken trampolines and shared games room. Perfect for couples and families, as both dog and child friendly. Wonderful rural location, yet only minutes from the sea. Great location for biking, walking and surfing and has the use of a warm drying room for your wet suits. Space to store bikes and boards.
Strawfields is a small rural small holding, consisting of a C16th farmhouse, two cottages (Hayloft and Shippen) and new for summer 2016, a very small rustic campsite with Shepherds hut. We have two pet Pygmy goats, Kune Kune pigs and a dog called Inca.

It has a large sitting/dining room with a log burner. It can sleep 4 (+2) guests. There are 2 bedrooms, bedroom 1 has a king size bed, bedroom 2 has three single beds. A pull out futon in the sitting room provides an extra bed if needed. It has a large open sitting/dining room with a log burner, TV, DVD player and DVD library, board games, puzzles and books. Both the sitting room and the kitchen have doors opening to the sunny south facing garden, with views across the fields down to the stream and over to the pond. To the rear there is a communal courtyard, shared with Hayloft cottage and the main farmhouse. There are many games to play including table tennis, pool, table football. swing ball and air hockey. The courtyard is a great place to scooter. To the front of the cottage, there are fields to explore, a stream to paddle and trampolines to bounce!
There are acres to explore and a public footpath runs behind the property that goes to our nearest village, West Down, which boasts an excellent pub and village shop. For children there are a range of toys to suit all ages, including scooters, table tennis, air hockey, swing ball, playmobile and lego. Our relaxed friendly atmosphere will hopefully ensure that you have a fantastic holiday, however long or short your stay with us.
There is so much to explore, including four wonderful sandy beaches, Woolacombe, Croyde, Putsbough and Saunton Sands; as well as many coves and rock pooling beaches including Lee bay, Broadsands, Ilfracombe Tunnels and Combe Martin. It is a great place for kayaking, surfing, dune sledging and coasteering. The Tarka trail is very family friendly bike riding route along the coast, whilst for the more adventurous the North Devon mountain bike trail is only a few miles away. Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, Braunton, Croyde, Exmoor, Lynton and Barnstaple are all within 10/20 mins drive.
Guests are welcome to explore all of the grounds and there is a communal games room that is shared with ourselves and one other cottage.

We relocated to Devon Sept 2014 to live by the sea and bring our children up in a wonderful rural location. Our favourite hobbies include going to the beach, body boarding, surfing, sand tobogganing and rock pooling. Our best holidays have been camping with family and friends. When I turned 40 a friend and I decided to enter some local triathlons to help us get fit. Loved the open water swimming and cycling, less keen on the running!
