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 Weather in Parkham

Parkham weather is fairly stable and experiences its highest temperatures from May to September each year. It can rain quite frequently, especially in the winter months. However, the region does not often suffer from heavy downpours and most showers are very light.

Travel to Parkham

Parkham holiday homes are best for families with a car. The village is located just over 50 miles from Exeter, a few miles away from the A39 and A386 and the drive is very scenic. There are few rail stations in its immediate area, but the village is serviced by a bus from Barnstaple on a regular basis.

The Summerhouse at Widemouth Bay

4 of 5
We have just returned from a really lovely long w.end, staying at 'The Summerhouse'. The accomodation was just as we hoped it would be, very comfy and homely, with everything you could possibly need. Nic, the Owner had left us some amazing scones (and clotted cream!!) and other lovely very useful 'goodies' which was very thoughtful. Only mins from the fantastic beach at Widemouth, where we did loads of walking and exploring of this stunning area of Cornwall. Will definitely be recommending this property to one and all!! We will hopefully be back one day too, Jane,Terry and Heather

Lovely, well appointed property.

5 of 5
We had a lovely weekend at this well appointed barn conversion and were made to feel extremely welcome. 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.

Beautiful apartment, wonderful location

5 of 5
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Horizon Views in Westward Ho! but the first time in this apartment. Absolutely beautiful apartment with everything you could wish for. The weather could have been better but it didn't stop us getting out and about walking miles along the beach and also the Tarka Trail. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we intend to return next year.
