|Further details indoors|
Lake House is part of Lake House Cottages and B&B, one of the oldest buildings in the village of Bradworthy. In previous years it has been a pub and also one of the main farmhouses in the area. It is surrounded by rolling Devon countryside with flower-filled hedgerows. The village is small and friendly and guests are made very welcome at the local inn.
All four of our cottages have lots of information in them regarding the area and what is available. We have included lots of walk suggestions and maps too, plus games and books. Places to visit nearby include Exmoor and Dartmoor, Clovelly, Padstow, Tintagel, Port Isaac, Boscastle, Bude and Okehampton. There are castles and historic houses too, plus many gardens, some of national importance such as RHS Rosemoor. We specialise in walking holidays and can assist with transport to and from the coast path if required.
|Further details outdoors|
Lots of furniture available for guests outside to enjoy the south-facing gardens. There is also a BBQ for guest use and all the cottages have their own tennis racquets for the (hard) tennis court. In the nearby meadow there is a log cabin with tea and coffee making facilities. There is another BBQ here and lots more picnic tables, benches and deck chairs. It is an idyllic spot which is utterly peaceful. Fishing is available free of charge to guests in the lower lake.
All bed linens are supplied and towels for guests from abroad. There are no extra charges for dogs, fishing, or any of the other facilities available on site. Guests tell us we have thought of everything. The most important thing to us is that you have a great holiday!
The West Country region
Lake House Cottages and B&B are in North Devon, but lie just 3 miles from the Cornwall border. The whole of the North Devon/West Cornwall coast is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as a World Biosphere Reserve. The coastline is spectacular with high cliffs and blankets of wild flowers. There are rocky coves and long sandy beaches - great for surfing - as well as little fishing harbours and seaside towns to explore. There is one of the largest sand dune systems in Europe at Braunton and Northam Burrows. The South West Coast path is easily accessible and around 80 miles of it can be reached whilst holidaying with us. Inland the scenery is green and verdant with farm fields and flower-filled hedgerows around small hamlets and villages with ancient churches and friendly village inns. At night the sky is filled with stars as the area has almost no light pollution (there is even an observatory in the village). For a truly peaceful, rural retreat you cannot beat it.
For families there are lots of outdoor activities such as wind surfing, kayaking, archery, zorbing, swimming and cycling on the Tarka Trail, all close by. There are also three quality adventure/animal parks: the Milky Way, the Big Sheep and Atlantis, all within 12 miles. And there is always our 6 acre meadow in which to let off steam!
Bradworthy's carnival takes place on Bank Holiday Monday at the end of August. There is an arts festival in the Barnstaple area in June and St Peters Fair in Holsworthy in July. Live music can be seen in various local pubs including the Bradworthy Inn once a month or so.
The Tamar Lakes are 3 miles away. The upper lake has many water sports available as well as a cycle/walking path right around it. Lower Tamar Lake is a nature reserve with pleasant walks and a bird hide.
The Eden Project with its huge glass biomes can be reached in just over an hour. Other nearer gardens include RHS Rosemoor, Docton Mill and Marwood Hill. There are two National Trust properties within easy reach, Arlington Court and Lanhydrock. Exmoor, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor can all be reached within a 1 hour drive and are great for exploring for adults and children alike. Tintagel Castle and Okehampton Castle are also great places to visit. Okehampton Castle lies close to another off-road cycle path, the Granite Trail.

We booked this at the last minute and we are so glad that we did.
Its a really large house of three bedrooms and high ceilings, we all like this house it had all that we needed including a tennis court and a large garden for use by all those staying at the houses.
There are also two fantastic two lakes that are owned by Lesley and Peter where you can fish are just watch the wildlife chairs and facilities are provided.
Lesley and Peter are great and very helpful, really nice people.

"Only one thing lacking - the lake ! (That's down the lane)"
Everything lived up to the warm welcome that awaited us. Even the bedside mats in the spacious bedroom we occupied seemed to have walked across the carpet to meet us after a few days ! The remainder of the family (all adult) declared themselves equally comfortable in their rooms and the bathroom they shared could not be faulted (our room was en-suite in a cosy sort of way). Downstairs the elegant living room was large enough to host the number of extra day visitors who called in and the kitchen had all the equipment we needed to cater for them. And the garden was a true haven. This is somewhere we will return to again and again - apart from anything else it's in a perfect location.
