Coast, country and town within easy reach when you book a holiday rental home or cottage in Holsworthy

Holsworthy is an ancient market town in Devon. It is situated on the River Deer, a branch of the Tamar, close to the Cornwall border and the Tarka Country green hills. This Saxon town was mentioned in the Doomsday book. It is nine miles from Bude in Cornwall and convenient for exploring Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor. Nearby villages include Bridgerule, Clawton, Derriton and Pyworthy.

Places to holiday in Holsworthy

A holiday cottage in Holsworthy is the perfect base to explore the Hartland Peninsula and the sandy beaches of Widemouth Bay and Bude, the coastal paths, the Tarka Trail and the wild moors of Dartmoor. There's so much to see and do that you will want to make an early start and return as late as possible. This is not an easy task when you stay in hotels, guesthouses or B and B establishments.

Renting self-catering holiday accommodation and cottages allows you to plan your day to your own requirements. The north west of Devon is relatively undeveloped and it is expected that it will soon join Hatherleigh as one of the hubs of the Ruby Trail expansion with a network of cycle paths, rural walks and bridleways joining the already popular Tarka Trail and Dartmoor.

Farm cottages are perfect for towns, country and coasts around Holsworthy. There are several organic farms in the area that have Veg box schemes and deliver to holiday cottages and at Colebrook Vale in Bude. However if you don't expect to cook when you are on holiday, then there are numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes in the area catering to all tastes and also takeaways to enjoy in the comfort of your self-catering cottage.

Things to do in Holsworthy

Holsworthy has a sports hall, football ground, swimming pool, park, Bowling Green, tennis courts and cricket club and just outside at Killatree there is an eighteen-hole golf course. Slightly further a field is the Bude and North Cornwall Golf Club. For anglers, Holsworthy has several tackle shops and there is fishing at the nearby Roadford and Tamar lakes and Simpson Valley Coarse Fishery offers fishing on six lakes set in undisturbed parkland surroundings.

Archery, horse riding and sailing, cycling and walking are other pursuits you can take part in or you may prefer to look around the Holsworthy Museum with its five individually themed rooms. Every Wednesday there is a Pannier Market in the busy market square and a Women's Institute market.

The nearby beach at Sandymouth belongs to the National Trust and offers spectacular surfing. Crooklets and Summerleaze beaches near Bude have acres of golden sands.

The interior was beautifully furnished with plenty of storage space, an excellent bathroom with a walk-in shower and a large wall mounted TV. The underfloor heating was also excellent. Outside the veranda was also excellent with a table and chairs which enabled us to have our breakfast overlooking the meadow in front of the studio and beyond. The owners of the property, Paula and Kevin Morgan were always on hand and could not have been kinder and more caring. They provided a wonderful breakfast and were very happy for us to have it in their conservatory or on our balcony. They also recommended places to go to and gave us lots of information about the local area. Overall we had an absolutely brilliant holiday and plan to return.

The house felt so homely and we were instantly relaxed and felt at home there, with the place so unique, it reminded me of the seven dwarves house in snow white, there were so many personal touches which only added to the charm of the house. Being just a 15 minute drive from Bude, and easily accessible to travel to other areas on the cornish coast, the location was ideal for us. We will definitely be back!

A river to go boating on and a beautiful beach & quant shop's to explore.lots of picturesque ports to discover too. The only negative was the surrounding property is under renovation and has a lot of unsightly mess around it but this did not affect our stay.
