Park View Farmhouse is in a private and peaceful location in the Devon village of Kentisbury. The village shops and The Pyne Arms are within easy walking distance, and lovely footpaths lead from the door through nearby woodland and countryside. The farmhouse has been restored to a high standard to comfortably sleep up to eight guests in four bedrooms, with a layout that makes it ideal for big or extended families and friends.
Kentisbury is right on the border of the Exmoor National Park and only a few miles from the beautiful beaches of the North Devon coast. There are miles of footpaths, bridleways and cycling routes to enjoy regardless of your ability and the season. There is something liberating about being surrounded by so much space and beauty, and it's a delight to watch kids see their boundaries expand and their independence grow with the space to go free-range.
North Devon's coastline is breathtaking at any time of the year. The beach at Combe Martin is only four miles from the farmhouse, while Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton are also close. These family-friendly beaches are clean and safe, with lifeguards on duty over the summer, places to hire equipment and schools where you can learn to surf, paddleboard or sea-kayak.
The South West Coast Path runs past Combe Martin, and the walk from the beach to Heddon's Mouth is especially lovely. A few miles in the other direction, Wistapoundland Reservoir has an easy and scenic trail around the water for walking and cycling. It's within cycling distance from Park View Farmhouse, but there is a car park (pay and display) if you prefer to drive. The traffic-free Tarka Trail is also within easy reach.
Days out can include shopping in Barnstaple, which is a historic market town on the banks of the River Taw. In addition to its excellent Pannier markets, there is a museum and an excellent choice of independent shops and cafes. Local attractions include specialist museums such as the Cobbatton Combat Collection, stately homes like Arlington Court, activity centres, and family-friendly fun in the form of the Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park.
If you yearn for a relaxing family holiday that will keep both adults and children happy, then a stay at Park View Farmhouse could be precisely what you need.
