About Downe Cottages

Downe House is a listed farmhouse dating back to the 15th century. It is situated on the tip of the Hartland Peninsula in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It has glorious sea views and looks north to Lundy Island and west over the Atlantic.

The Holiday Cottages set in the midst of rolling farmland that slopes gently to the coast. Our nearest neighbours are half a mile away, and all around are glorious sea views.

To the south west lies Hartland Abbey, and to the north west lies Blegberry, a fortified farm dating from the 1600s. In the distance the stone tower of St Nectan’s Church rises above the picturesque village of Stoke.

The sea, Berry Cove and the North Devon Coastal Path are a mile’s walk away along a quiet single-track road and a small footpath.

The unspoilt village of Hartland is a mile away either by road or by footpaths that take you along the side of a small river through the picturesque vale. The historic village of Clovelly is six miles away.

The immediate area is ideal for walkers and cyclists, with a maze of footpaths and a network of single-track lanes on the doorstep. The cliff-top walks along the dramatic coastline are simply stunning and lead you to secluded coves.
