About Clematis Cottage at Swardicott Farm

Clematis Cottage at Swardicott Farm is a spacious holiday home sleeping eight guests in 4 en-suite bedrooms. Sitting in the very heart of North Devon's countryside, the farm is ideal for friends and family to safely explore, where guests can join in watching the couple of house cows being milked of a morning and feeding the poultry of an evening. If feeling particularly keen, pruning help in the 75 acre woodland is always welcome! Guests have complete use of the games room plus can set up croquet or badminton on the lawn adjacent to the cottage. Children are able to spend endless hours playing in the Wendy house. An exciting addition to the property was a luxury hot tub to accommodate up to eight people, which can be enjoyed at any time of year.

The Tarka Trail can be accessed at the bottom of the farm drive providing direct access onto miles of traffic-free paths. Stretching some one hundred and eighty miles, there are superb opportunities for those who enjoy walking and cycling!

Sitting on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, Swardicott Farm is an ideal base from which to explore Devon and its many attractions. The coastline is easy to reach by car offering some of the cleanest beaches in the country, including the Blue Flag beach at Woolacombe. There are also plenty of watersports opportunities where you can try your hand at windsurfing, surf-skiing and kayaking from the local beaches that are just a short drive away.

The market towns of Bideford and Barnstaple are both within easy reach and provide the perfect mix of old world charm and modern shopping, along with a good choice of eating establishments. There is also a traditional village pub just one mile away and other local outdoor pursuits include trout fishing both in local lakes and on the River Torridge and rough shooting (available on the farm).

Whatever you decide to do, you can return to your cottage at the end of the day and enjoy the stunning views of Dartmoor, the peace and quiet of the garden, or wander around the farm to spot wildlife in the surrounding fields or by the lake.
