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.

The furnishings, decoration and renovations are superb and the views over the estuary are spectacular. The owner was very helpful and being able to park our car was a bonus. We stayed for 3 nights visiting the local area. We recommend taking the ferry ( which only runs in the Summer months and is manned by volunteers) across to Instow and walking along the Tarka Trail and walking round the Northam Country Park and along the beach where we viewed a spectacular sunset. A wonderful holiday and we would not hesitate to recommend Dartonia Cottage to friends and family.

We didn't want for anything and would definitely stay here again. As someone mentioned previously the photos don't do it justice! Thank you!
