About Marsland Cottage

Marsland Cottage is the perfect place where you and your family can get away from it all. Imagine the peace of staying somewhere with rolling views over beautiful Devon countryside, no noisy traffic to interrupt your sleep, and no light pollution to block the spectacular views of the brilliant night skies. The cottage is on the family-run Trew Farm, which dates back to the 1840s and is slowly being brought back to life by the current owners, who farm traditional breeds using old methods that help to protect the landscape. Marsland Cottage sleeps up to five people in three bedrooms.

Trew Farm is in the small village of Higher Clovelly, close to Bideford and the Hartland Peninsula. It's in the heart of everything wonderful about Devon, being less than four miles from Clovelly, Westward Ho!, Instow, and other beautiful beaches on the North Devon Coast and surrounded by scenic countryside with miles of footpaths, cycling routes and bridleways that make it easy to explore in any season. The thriving market town of Bideford, with its variety of independent shops, historic pannier market, and fantastic cafes and restaurants, is 12 miles away. Not only does it have everything you'll need to feed your family, but it is the best place to pick up a skillfully crafted souvenir. Fresh milk, cakes and bread can be found in Woolsfardisworthy, 2.5 miles away.

Nearby attractions include The Milky Way Adventure Park, The Big Sheep, Hartland Abbey, and the Cobbatton Combat Collection, which is a specialist museum focusing on tanks and other WWII items. Stretch your legs on the South West Coast Path and the Torridge Tarka Trail, the latter of which is also bike-friendly. There are country houses and heritage railways, swimming pools and surfing schools, and a range of all-weather attractions to keep you happily entertained in every season.

Marsland Cottage is the first property the owners of Trew Farm have restored, and they've done a lovely job. It's exactly the place you and your family need for a relaxing holiday. The location is remote enough to feel like a peaceful escape yet close enough to beaches and attractions that you can spend fun days out without having to spend hours in the car listening to the kids ask "are we there yet?"!
