Places to visit on holiday in Bideford, Devon

The stunning little whitewashed village of Clovelly, probably the most photographed village in the West Country, is easily accessible from a self catering Bideford property. Built along narrow, cobbled streets which climb steeply up from the harbour, provisions have to be bought into the village on sledges, which simply adds to the already enormous charm.

Travel to Bideford, Devon

Nothing was missing; everything was clean and tidy. The corespondence before arriving was brilliant. There is really nothing bad to mention; even the Internet was very fast for my opinion. Maybe we`ll see us again one time...

Fantastic beach within 10 minute drive. Great for surfing and other water sports. Views from the house have a relaxing effect and lots to do for the whole family around the area.

The highlight was the pool and the hot tub. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely holiday home. The owners were very easy to talk to, it was easy to book and the deposit was returned very quickly. We were given a very thoughtful welcome basket on arrival which was a lovely start to the holiday,
