Make a holiday cottage in Bradworthy your home away from home

Bradworthy is lovely and thriving community in Devon. Its history dates back all the way to 700 AD, and today it is perhaps the best preserved example of a Saxon Village in the West Country. The charming town has a lot to offer visitors in search of a quiet country escape. HomeAway has a good selection of Bradworthy rental cottages to choose from, ranging from cosy accommodation for couples, to larger cottages that can sleep families and groups. Bradworthy holiday rentals are an excellent value, with many properties coming with amenities such as a garden or a patio. Within charming rural settings, these cottages, converted barns and apartments are furnished to a high standard and are perfect for romantic weekend getaways or long-stay family holidays and most are within an easy drive to nearby beaches and within walking distance to Bradworthy’s charming town centre.

Things to do in Bradworthy

Bradworthy holiday cottages sit in glorious Devonshire countryside close to the Torridge River. With the Tamar Lakes, Hartland Point and Clovelly Bay nearby, outdoors activities are plentiful and the towns of Clovelly, Bideford and Hartland make for interesting visits.

-The Gnome Reserve & Wild Flower Garden is an eco-friendly 4 acre reserve is a whimsical place where over 250 species of wildflowers, grasses and ferns grow. True to its name, there are also 1000 little gnomes onsite, as well as a Gnome Museum. The family-friendly destination is a great place for a picnic.

-Berridon Farms is a great reflection of Bradworthy’s farming routes. The farm and campsite is home to hens, pigs, goats, pygmy goats, sheep and Shetland ponies. Guests will be able to experience a rural lifestyle here where they can collect chicken eggs for breakfast and learn about animal care and maintenance.

-Tamar Shooting Ground is a beautiful wildlife area open for clay pigeon, simulated game shooting and game shooting throughout the year. The grounds also have onsite training and can support clubs, stag and hen parties, private parties and corporate entertainment.

-Clovelly is a must visit place and is roughly 10 miles from most holiday cottages in Bradworthy. The steep climb from the pretty pebbly beach to the car-free town centre is enjoyable for the views, small shops and winding lanes and alleyways. Enjoy the traditional British holiday pursuits of donkey rides, sitting in deckchairs watching the sea, and of course, fish and chips and cream teas.

-Atlantic Pursuits is the ideal set up for active holidaymakers. Making the most of the stunning North Devon and Cornwall coasts, Atlantic Pursuits offers various organised activities including kayaking, Canadian canoeing, boogie boarding and surfboard riding.
