Woodland Cottages, Newton Tracey, Barnstaple, Devon

Woodland Cottages form part of West Woodlands a 17th Century farmstead that was a working farm until the early 1970s. It was then that the listed farmhouse was modernised although the long run of barns set in the surrounding 24 acres remained largely untouched. In 1994 the 8 acre woodland to the north of the property was planted. Our holiday cottages are situated just outside of Newton Tracey and just a short drive from the popular Devon market town of Barnstaple.

Within the cottages many original features have been conserved – exposed stonework and timbers, the original barn openings and the use of natural, local and sometimes original materials such as timbers, stone and slate. That said, the cottages are extremely light and spacious and are very well equipped throughout.

All have fitted kitchens with dishwashers, washing machines, microwaves etc., CD player, T.V/DVD. Each is gas centrally heated with woodburner effect fires. Each has a large, private patio area looking out over our quite extraordinary views. 

Our holiday cottages are very well situated to explore and enjoy everything North Devon has to offer. The bustling town of Barnstaple, the picturesque port of Bideford and the historic town of Great Torrington are all nearby. 

The beaches of Northam Burrows and Westward Ho! (20 mins) are ideal for children with vast areas of sand and clean water - ideal for surfing and bodyboarding. Instow beach (15 mins) is loved by children, for its sand dunes, and adults for its picturesque location. 

Our spectacular coastline with its famous surfing beaches (Croyde, Saunton, Woolacombe) and quaint harbours (Clovelly, Harland Quay and Bucks Mill) is also close by. For those who like to venture further afield, the wonderful National Parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor are also very accessible.
