Make a holiday rental home of cottage in Welcombe, Devon your home away from home

Welcombe is a parish and village on the North Devon coast midway between Bude and Bideford. It is just over the border from Cornwall and comes under the jurisdiction of Torridge Council. Other hamlets in the parish include Welcombe Cross, Upcott, Darracot and Mead. The village straddles a deep valley leading to a winding stream that ends in a remarkable waterfall above the beach at Welcombe Mouth. Towns and villages within seven miles of Welcombe include Milford, Morwenstow, Kilkhampton, Blagberry, Hartland, Ploughill, Hartland Point, Bradworthy, Woolfardisworthy, Clovelly, Stratton and Bude.

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.

Things to do in Welcombe

Cottages in Welcombe place you in part of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the South West Coast Path has spectacular views to Lundy Island. This area is perfect for walking, cycling, horse riding and nature and birdwatching. If you want to try out the local produce the village shop operates on a non-profit basis for postal services and holiday grocery orders. Here you will find milk and cream from Bradley Dairies, Hennaford Farm ice cream, meat from Bob the butcher, cottage cakes made in the village, pasties from Orchardlea Foods, the North Devon Journal and much more. Bideford has a farmers market on the 2nd and 4th Saturday's of the month.

The Welcombe Mouth has a track going down to the beach which is well worth the trek or you may like to travel to the other popular surfing beaches of North Cornwall and Devon such as Newquay, Polzeath, Bude, Westward Ho!, Saunton Sands, Croyde, Rockham Bay and Woolacombe.

The village celebrates St Nectan's Day (the patron saint) on June 17th and if you are planning a holiday at this time of year, your seaside cottage will need booking early to avoid disappointment.

Welcombe's climate is mild but unpredictable and coastal areas are prone to sea mist and not well protected against the north wind.

The addition of the conservatory is the icing on the cake. The garden is ideal for relaxing and catching the sun in. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty crockery, cutlery, etc. We very much appreciated the welcome pack. Umtali is ideally situated it is a short level walk to the village and beach and there is a bus stop opposite where you can get buses to a variety of surrounding towns. There is no need to use your car if you don't want to. All in all we had a fantastic week there and would highly recommend this lovely bungalow. Thank you.

Attractive, comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. The views are amazing with some fantastic sunsets and we found it to be an ideal location for exploring North Devon.
