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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

We all had a great time and would recommend this place to anyone as it has something for everyone, and although it isn't around the corner from beaches (which are about 30 mins drive) etc, the space it has would keep children entertained for days. On arrival 'No Place' felt extremely comfy, clean and cosy and the entire cottage is decorated to a very high standard. Lynda was extremely friendly and helpful, even leaving some fresh eggs, laid on site, scones, jam and cream together with milk, tea and coffee. What a lovely welcome. About the cottage; Downstairs: You step into the porch which has tiled flooring (easy to clean if wet weather) big enough to house a puppy and her crate plus some. Even has a bodyboard and windbreak. Then through a stable type door into the carpeted lounge with Sky tv, comfortable sofas, a log fire, dvd's and games. Off the lounge: Into the kitchen which houses all the essentials, such as electric cooker, washing machine, washing up equipment, fridge, microwave, all cooking utensils including scales (if you had the urge to bake), pots and pans, plenty of plates cups and glasses it also has a wine cooler. Bedroom 1: King Size bed, the mattress it was soooo comfortable, a single bed, Wardrobe and side tables. Staircase leading to a lovely landing with bathroom, and 2nd bedroom again with a double bed, as me and b/f slept downstairs I am unable to comment but our friends were extremely comfortable. The gardens are huge and well maintained, has a swing seat, an area with a fire pit, wooded area where they have built a large tree house. Choose this cottage you really won't be disappointed.
