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.

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.

Nothing was missing; everything was clean and tidy. The corespondence before arriving was brilliant. There is really nothing bad to mention; even the Internet was very fast for my opinion. Maybe we`ll see us again one time...

My parents, my wife, myself and 2 children of 10 and 11 all loved it. Plenty of room for us all and it is immaculate could not fault anything at all, really did feel like we were very lucky everything was as described if not better. The village is very quiet the kids could go outside and play on the green or on their bikes with only the odd car now and then. Plenty of long or short walks with beautiful scenery on the doorstep. Close to Bude and beaches black Rock was my favourite. There is so much to do in the Cornwall area a week was not enough, we would all love to return and would definitely recommend Bath Cottage. Thank you for having us. We had a fantastic holiday.
