Make a holiday bungalow in Parkham your home away from home

The village of Parkham lies less than 2 miles from the North Devon coast and is a lovely place for a sunny countryside retreat close to the seaside. It’s a small village with minimal amenities, although it does have a pub, a store and a butcher, but it’s close enough to the main towns in the area to not feel isolated. The rustic region offers plenty in regards to walking and cycling routes, charming pubs and family-friendly activities. HomeAway has several superb Parkham holiday bungalows and homes to choose from, whether you’re in search of a couple’s retreat or a family getaway. Holiday homes in Parkham cater to various size travelling parties and are well appointed. Some of the accommodation choices are also pet friendly and with Parkham’s rural nature, you’re likely to encounter a few of its animal residents during your stay. Holiday bungalows in Parkham are located near to farms, with plenty of green space and access to footpaths to stretch your legs.

Things to do in Parkham

Parkham is surrounded by gorgeous green countryside. There’s plenty to do here for outdoor enthusiasts and families have numerous options as well.

-Parkham Beer Festival is the main community event in the village and a treat for visitors who choose holiday bungalows in Parkham in June. Centred on the charming 13th century Bell Inn, for 6 days there’s plenty of real ale, bands, entertainment including the Tarka Morris Men and a feast (either a hog roast or barbeque).

-The Milky Way Adventure Park is one of Devon’s most celebrated family-friendly attractions. The park is home to theme park rides, play areas for children of all ages, several cafes and restaurants and many other interactive exhibits and features. There is also a large onsite falconry area that will appeal to both adults and children. The park puts on live shows for visitors that allow you to get close to these magnificent creatures.

-The Big Sheep is full of indoor and outdoor activities that will appeal particularly to children. Visitors will be able to watch and interact with farm animals, which include ducks, ponies and sheep. There is also restaurant and family-oriented cafe here in addition to a few theme park-style rides for children.

-Westward Ho Beach is a lovely spot that features 2 miles of sand and is one of the best beaches within easy reach from holiday homes in Parkham. The beach is perfect for a romantic evening stroll or a day out with kids and is within close proximity to dozens of charming cafes and restaurants. Dogs are allowed on the north end of the beach and across the entire beach during the winter months.

- North Devon Biosphere Reserve is 50 square miles of glorious Devon countryside and is UNESCO heritage site listed thanks to its balance of nature and people. With the Torridge and Taw Rivers running through it and Braunton Burrows – a spectacular sand dune system – the beauty is undeniable. The reserve is ideal for getting out into nature and a great way to enjoy it is a cycle ride on the 30 mile trail.

The location was perfect for what we wanted - open spaces, beach walks for the dogs. The cottage was very comfortable, so much space, warm and well equipped. No bad points about this property. Nicki was very helpful on day one and was there when we left on our last morning. Really enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending this property.
