Spring Cottage is in the village of Bradworthy which has a great pub, village shops, and is a short drive inland from the coast. The enclosed garden as at the back through the side gate.
The sitting-room has a wood-burner so this cottage is a great place to stay whatever the time of year.
The kitchen has just been refurbished. Please note that the Rayburn is ornamental only - you have a brand new  fitted oven and hob for your cooking.
For sunny days there is a very private, enclosed courtyard garden. Please note that there is a drop from the patio.
The dramatic north Devon and Cornwall coast is just a short drive away from the village - this is a view of Widemouth Bay.
The downstairs shower room is off the kitchen - there is a family bathroom upstairs as well.
There is a separate dining-room too (above it is a mezzanine area that the Owners are keeping separate from the let). Beyond the dining-room is the ground floor bedroom.
This is the double bedroom on the first floor. A bright room looking out to the front of the cottage, with plenty of built-in storage.
There are pretty details in the cottage making it so warm and friendly.
Another view of the first floor double bedroom.
We hope you will do all these things
This is the twin bedroom on the first floor, again looking out to the front of the cottage.
Another view of the twin bedroom.
With three-foot singles, this room is good for adult guests too.
Children will love the bean bag chair!
This is the family bathroom on the first floor.
This is the ground floor shower-room, accessed via the kitchen.
The courtyard garden is completely private.
Start the day with some treats - one of the shops is just a one minute walk up the road.
Another view of the coastline - there are a mixture of sandy beaches, rocky coves and high cliffs - fantastic for walking.
A harbour scene at Bude.
The historic village of Clovelly is well worth a visit.  You do need a ticket to go down to the village (you can cheat and take a landrover drive back up to the top as it is very steep).
The cobbled street of Clovelly, leading down to the harbour.
This section of the South West Coast Path is very beautiful if challenging.
RHS Rosemoor Gardens are an excellent day out.
You can easily while away a day here. There is a cafe/restaurant too.
It is also an easy drive to Dartmoor - a stunning National Park with miles of wide open space to explore.

Mr Williams October 2013

Excellent food (beef and chorizo burger was a joy) and very welcoming to us and our four month old daughter. Friendly people and the beer selection looked frustratingly good but I was unfortunately driving. I will definitely go again next time I'm in the area. Real pub, real ale, proper food and friendly people...how a pub should be.

Visit the Welcombe Pottery around lunchtime and stay for a meal at the quirky, retro and very child friendly Old Smithy Inn: good value, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Great to find a proper, country pub that serves good beer, good food AND genuinely likes children!

Fantastic rustic pub

Fantastic rustic pub, great food. A really chilled out place. Nice garden area to sit outside. Children's menu. 2 real fires in winter. 5 min drive from Welcombe Mouth beach - our favourite watering hole!

RHS Rosemoor (12 miles)

Set deep in the north Devon countryside, The Rosemoor estate was once the home of Lady Anne Palmer. Lady Anne developed a passion for plants when she met noted plantsman Colllingwood Ingram while recuperating from measles in Spain. Over the next 30 years, she travelled the world to collect specimens for her garden, which she gave to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988. The estate now comprises 65 acres of land, which includes rose gardens, a winter garden, a fruit and vegetable garden, a formal garden, woodlands, and many stream and lakeside plantings, making Rosemoor an enchanting place to visit whatever the season.

Roses Galore!

The rose collection - one of the largest in the West Country - is very impressive. In full bloom in the summer, the scent of over 2,000 flowers is quite sensational. The Rose Weekend, held in June, was very informative, with advice on growing your own, as well as walks and activities for children.

Killock Farm Shop (6 miles)

Local veg, fish and meat, including beef and lamb reared on the owner's farm. Bread and pasties fresh from the bakery.

Worth a trip for anyone interested in functional or decorative ceramics in refreshingly modern and usable designs. Mrs Potter, Alice is lovely and tolerated our 22 month old having a very close look/picking everything up!

Dragon Archery (8 miles)

This fun day out gives you the opportunity to learn the art of archery. Then put your newly taught skill to the test on dinosaurs, wolves and armoured knights! Much more than just target shooting.

Fantastic Family Fun!

Dragon Archery is the place to be if you want to try archery for the first time or if you are more experienced. Great challenges suitable for all ages from 8+. Really friendly encouraging team giving one to one coaching to help you get the most out of your experience. Suitable for all weathers...we went on a very wet and windy day in October! Only advice is BOOK EARLY as this attraction is very very popular!! If you are lucky enough to go along, you will see why.

Mrs Worsfold June 2011

A 3 hour archery session which involves shooting dinosaurs, amongst other things not just targets. I thoroughly enjoyed this and I wasn't expecting to. All equipment was supplied, and we were taught very well how to use it. Rather than just having targets to aim at, there are a number of themed areas including dinosaurs and orcs. The time passed very quickly and owners were very friendly and helpful.
