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.

Beautiful little cottage- PERFECT GETAWAY

5 of 5
First things first, the contact and helpfulness of the owners made this small getaway seamless right from the start. All questions were answered quickly and booking was extremely effortless. This cottage suited our needs perfectly. The lounge area was great, the television made for great viewing in the cold evenings, the log burner a warm addition and the sofa's were so comfortable. The kitchen although being slightly small was perfectly adequate for the holiday (Great array of utensils), the only thing I would say is perhaps a smaller table in the kitchen that can be extended when needed as it is slightly hard to move around the larger one. The bedrooms were very cosy and beds extremely comfortable too, also great amount of storage too! Great little touches of home all around the place. Overall great stay in this cottage, would recommend highly to anyone that is considering staying in this part of Devon. Thank you so much, would certainly consider staying here again. P.s One thing that I would say it might be nice if dogs could be considered? Only in the kitchen and lounge area, not bedrooms.

Wonderful Place to Stay

5 of 5
Riki and Martin were so welcoming and took the time to go through everything as we arrived. The place is a fantastic base, well equipped and very modernised. The quality of everything was excellent so I would definitely recommend staying and I would not hesitate to come back.
