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.

Weather in Holsworthy

The climate in Holsworthy is mild and warmer than many other parts of England but it will feel cooler the nearer you get to the coasts.

The food welcome pack was delightful! Downstairs there is a very spacious, open plan lounge and dining area with a very well equipped kitchen, having pretty much everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bedroom on the ground floor has two single beds and a TV. This room has en-suite access to a Jack and Jill bathroom with a roll top bath as well as a shower. There are two, very large bedrooms on the first floor, both have en-suite shower rooms. Each of these rooms also has a TV and DVD player! The bedrooms are all amazing and the beds were extremely comfortable. Located in a very quiet area but with easy access to main roads. I would highly recommend staying here.

The kitchen is the best equipped we have found and the welcome pack was very generous, with the cream tea very welcome after our journey! The downstairs accommodation is excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. The only negative comment I would make is that the bedroom ceilings, being built in the eaves, mean that you have to be careful to not bang your head. Bob and Nic were very welcoming and available to answer any questions.

The Saffron cake, Cornish cider, milk and shortbread biscuits were a very lovely surprise when we arrived after our long drive. The cottage is beautiful and we felt very much at home. We had a lot of fun keeping the fire going, enjoying cosy evenings in after windswept seaside walks during the day. The perfect place for lots of scenic excursions. Thank you very much again for letting us share in your patch of paradise and for being so helpful with instructions beforehand.
