Corffe Estate offers a spectacular setting for a North Devon holiday. There is no better place for a break away with friends or family than this wonderful five acre estate with facilities including a tennis court, swimming pool, hot tub and plenty of outside space with adventure play areas for the younger party members. Corffe offers a superb choice of top quality holiday homes that can be booked separately or together. There are nine separate cottages plus magnificent Corffe House, making it perfect for everyone from couples looking for a romantic retreat, to groups of family and friends who want to be together for a celebratory occassion.
Set in an idyllic corner of North Devon, Corffe is just outside the village of Tawstock and close to the vibrant market town of Barnstaple. This is the largest town in North Devon and where you will find a variety of supermarkets (including Asda, Sainsbury’s and Tesco, who all deliver to the property) as well as pubs, restaurants and cafes. The Corner Cafe on Boutport Street is a favourite choice for a tasty breakfast after an early morning swim or surf, or for brunch after a big night.
Barnstaple Pannier Market holds a farmers’ market every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, a craft market on Monday, and antiques and collectables market on Tuesday.
If you can drag yourself away from Corffe’s swimming pool and grounds, you will find a wealth of activities to enjoy in Barnstaple and the surrounding area. Devon’s best beaches, including Woolacombe, Croyde, Westward Ho!, The Tunnels at Ilfracombe, and Saunton Sands are all within easy reach, and there are a number of footpaths and cycling routes that will take you meandering through the lush green countryside. With Exmoor National Park virtually on the doorstep, you are not short of places to be active!
Exmoor Zoo is always fun and gives you a rare chance to see a black leopard up close, or you could visit one of the area’s excellent museums including the Museum of Barnstaple and Arlington Court. Rock Park is a top choice for letting the kids run off some energy while you sit peacefully with a cup of coffee.
North Devon has many lovely villages and towns to discover such as Croyde, Woolacombe, Georgeham, Mortehoe, Lee and Hele Bay. Some are large, others tiny, but all are beautiful and unique.
Whether you are a party of two or a group of twenty or more, you will receive a very warm welcome from the owners of Corffe.
