About Gull Cottage

Gull Cottage is one of six beautifully presented holiday cottages on Robin Hill Farm near Bideford. All the cottages offer verified 4-Star self-catering accommodation with Gull sleeping six people in three bedrooms. The upside-down layout, with the bedrooms on the ground floor and the open-plan living space upstairs, makes a fantastic feature of far-reaching rural views. Original stone walls and oak beams blend seamlessly with contemporary comforts to provide a welcoming space in all seasons. With a private garden and use of the farm's indoor swimming pool, games room, playground, and dog-exercise area, it's no surprise that Gull Cottage is a favourite with families.

Robin Hill Farm is barely two miles south of Bideford. Drive, walk or cycle to the harbour town to enjoy excellent amenities that include a wide choice of places to eat, drink and shop. Sightseeing cruises regularly leave from the waterfront. You can hire a bike, jump straight onto the Tarka Trail, and cycle to Barnstaple, Instow and Fremington, crossing over the spot where the Rivers Taw and Torridge meet. Westward Ho! and the South West Coast Path are only a 10-12 minute drive from your cottage, and you're also within easy reach of Peppercombe Beach, Appledore, Saunton Sands, and Croyde Beach.

Ideas for day trips are plentiful and varied. Discover the rugged beauty of Baggy Point, the magic of Boscastle and Tintagel, and so much more. Family-friendly attractions near Bideford include The BIG Sheep, The Milky Way Adventure Park, and outdoor fun at The Ultimate Adventure Centre. Surfing, fishing and golf are always popular, with adventure lovers appreciating being just ten miles from Dartmoor National Park.

Gull Cottage is an excellent choice for a stress-free holiday with family and friends. There is plenty to do within the grounds of Robin Hill Farm, so you don't have to plan daily activities that cost a fortune. Mix days lazing around the pool, games room and playground with time at the beach and exploring quirky villages and friendly towns. Depending on availability, you can book Gull with other cottages on-site for holidays with friends and extended family.
