The best yet! 5 ***** We wanted somewhere to stay which was of a good comfortable standard and within easy reach of coastal paths as we intended to do a lot of walking. We have stayed in the equivalent of 5 star accommodation elsewhere and had been delighted so Downe Cottages had a lot to live up too! We're the...

We stayed in one of the one bedroomed cottages (clematis) and had a beautiful view of the coast from the bedroom patio doors. The cottages are well equipped and well presented; perfectly placed for walks on the stunning heartland peninsula. Not cheap, but with extras such as steam room, jacuzzi and sauna and lots of books, DVDs etc to borrow....

We arrived late and it was no...

My partner had previously stayed in Hydranger Cottage, one of the delightful listed properties situated around a landscaped courtyard on the complex that collectively are Downe Cottages. This really is a tucked away rural idyll located near the further most corner of the North Devon coast between Hartland Point and Hartland Quay and just a short walk down the lane...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A courtyard of luxury cottages with glorious sea views.The cottages are located on the tip of the Hartland Peninsula in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Charmingly situated they have glorious sea views looking north to Lundy Island and west over the Atlantic.They are set in the midst of rolling farm land that slopes gently to the coast. In the distance the stone tower of St. Nectan's Church rises above the picturesque village of Stoke.. All around is peace and tranquillity.The sea, Berry Cove and the North Devon Coastal Path are a brief walk away along a quiet single track road. Hartland, an unspoilt North Devon village, is a mile away.The immediate area is ideal for walkers and cyclists with a maze of footpaths and single tract lanes on the doorstep. The cliff top walks are simply stunning and lead you to secluded cove after cove.Ideal for couples and families. ... more   less
