Places to holiday in Welcombe

There are a few hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast (b&b) in the surrounding towns, but the only way to really experience all that this wonderful community has on offer is to rent self catering accommodation or a holiday cottage in the village. Holiday cottages put you right in the middle of the spectacular scenery and close for sightseeing and attractions in both Devon and Cornwall.

Coastal cottages are also popular with visitors who come to the area on one of the Yarner Trust Courses to learn things like backyard poultry, raised bed gardening, Yurt making, spoon carving, creating a medicinal herb garden, driftwood sculpture, dry stone walls, ecology of the landscape and so on, as the list is vast.

The community has many social events, which keeps visitors returning to their Welcombe holiday cottage year after year. There is a pub, pottery, village stores and tourist information near to the Devon cottages, the St Nectan's Church and the Old Smithy Inn. There are two small campsites in the area, but sleeping in a tent cannot be compared with the home from home comforts of a holiday cottage.

We had everything we needed - (good wifi connectionn and even a hairdryer was provided!!). Kitchen was fully equipped and had the appearance of a newly fitted kitchen. King size bed was extremely comfortable and shower instantly hot. Didn't get round to using the X-box, but would be great for bored youngsters (or adults). Also loved the welcome pack, which was a folder of very detailed information regarding the cottage and facilities in the surrounding area along with some wine and biscuits, which we thought was a really nice touch. Overall, a very enjoyable stay and will definitely consider renting this property again.

The Parlour is set in peaceful, rural surroundings and provides easy access by car to the spectacular coastline which offers plenty of walking opportunities. The five star rating is well-merited!

Our stay was a peaceful retreat (lovely quiet site). On arrival we got to meet the owner, which was lovely having only had contact via network prior to arrival and what a charming lovely lady, she not only welcomed us but also our beloved dog (Tyson) on entering the property and discovering the lovely welcoming gestures that had been left for us and clearly laden with finesse, including a doggie treat too speaks volumes. We used the Manor on our first night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Highly Recommended Property and would be looking to return (especially to this property). Tony Gill and Tyson
