The Stables also has its own large private terrace where children can play safely and BBQ's can be enjoyed. The quaint village of Tawstock is situated only a few miles from the lovely North Devon market town of Barnstaple. There are excellent walks in the area and the Tarka Trail, which is great for cycling and can easily be accessed. Horse riding and golf are also available in the local area, so you will never be short of outdoor activities.

Ideal for beach and countryside outings

If a day at the beach is required you won't be disappointed by the miles of golden sands and blue waters that stretch out around the North Devon coast. Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton are less than 30 minutes away and Instow Sands is just seven miles from the cottages. All these beaches are located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are situated along the South West Coastal Footpath. If the beach doesn't take your fancy why not head to Exmoor National Park, which can be seen in all its glory around Lynton and Lynmouth. Travel the Cliff Railway between the two villages, watch the goats tackle the steep sides of the Valley of the Rocks, or walk up to Watersmeet and enjoy a cream tea. Drive east along the coast to Ilfracombe, the beautiful Victorian seaside town, home to artist Damien Hirst and his statue 'Verity,' which stands proudly above the pretty harbour. Alternatively, head west and discover the wonders of Clovelly, Hartland and Appledore, three lovely villages steeped in history and excellent for capturing breathtaking photos.
