Our three self-catering holiday cottages are located on the Hartland Peninsula. This makes it a great location for walkers, hikers, and cyclists. The peninsula is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is part of the North Devon UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, contains or is near to four Sites of Special Scientific Interest, and is close to Lundy Island, England's only Marine Nature Reserve. This makes it a walkers' paradise. There are plenty of local walks on the Peninsula, taking in a wide range of breath-taking landscapes and views. The South West Coast Path is only a short distance away, enabling fantastic access to this Jurassic coastline. Pick up and forward on is available (with prior arrangement) for walkers exploring the South West Coast Path in stages.

Cyclists are also welcome at Yapham. We have access to NCN 3 & 27, plus the famous Tarka Trail is nearby. We can advise upon cycle hire, and have a cycle storage area on site.

Yapham makes an ideal location for getting away from it all. We are located on the side of a valley, in five acres of splendid grounds, including an orchard, private woodland, and paddock. The cottages are located at the end of our five hundred metre driveway, from the quiet country lane that connects the main Hartland road to Hartland Point. There is no light pollution, so on a clear night you feel as though you could almost touch the stars! Bird lovers will be delighted too. Each cottage has its own bird feeder, and you will marvel at the sheer number of birds visiting. You might even get to feed some of the pheasants that visit us. Peace and tranquillity is assured to our visitors.

Yapham is an ideal base to explore the many attractions of both Devon and Cornwall. In Hartland itself you have Hartland Quay with the Smugglers' Museum, Hartland Point Lighthouse, Hartland Abbey, and Docton Mill. The world famous village of Clovelly is only a ten minute drive away. Explore the shops in the Atlantic Village, Bideford, Barnstaple and Bude. If history is your thing, then there is no shortage of places of interest, with museums and heritage trails in Hartland and the nearby towns. For children you have The Big Sheep, Milky Way, Atlantic Village and Funderzone. Exmoor and Dartmoor are both within easy driving distance, as well as other local areas of natural beauty. Why not take the ferry or helicopter ride to Lundy Island? Each cottage contains guides to the many other local attraction and places to eat. You certainly won't be stuck for things to do!

About this location

The Devon region

The Hartland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a peaceful, rural setting; with small country lanes and very little traffic. The area has lovely views over the countryside, and the coastline is simply stunning. No wonder it is described as a "walker's paradise". There are many delightful beaches within easy driving distance, from traditional sandy beaches to rocky, secluded coves. As well as the Jurassic coastline, there are many other environments to explore: woodland, grassland, and Dartmoor and Exmoor of course.


Hartland village is a little gem with shops, pubs and local artists selling their wares. Whilst on the peninsula, you can visit Hartland Abbey, Hartland Quay, Hartland Point, and Docton Mill. Just next door is the world famous Clovelly fishing village. Going a little further afield, you have the main towns of Bideford and Barnstaple, with their heritage trails and shopping districts. There are just too many places to visit and activities to list here. Trust me: you won't be stuck for things to do!

"Fantastic cottage"

Windbury Cottage provides the ideal setting for those who want to combine “getting away from it all” with comfort and modern convenience. From the terrace one can enjoy views of the valley below … More

Many thanks for your review of Windbury Cottage. It is definitely a place to de-stress! It is great just sitting on the terrace, listening to the birds and watching them feed on the feeders. I hope that we can tempt you back again in the future.
