A Peaceful Country Retreat.......

The Homestead at Southcombe Farm is an amazing 2 bedroom luxury self catering cottage. It is really comfortable and has lovely country views.

The Homestead sleeps 4 with plenty of space and comfort. Perfect for small families, friends or couples. The ground floor is open plan with a country kitchen, dining area, sunny lounge with two comfortable leather sofas, stereo, TV, DVD, log burner and of course fantastic views out over the surrounding countryside. Upstairs are the cosy, but spacious bedrooms with views out on to the surrounding farmland. The bathroom is lovely too, fully tiled, and spotlessly clean!

Although the Homestead is bright and airy, it is also warm having been insulated to the highest standards. Whenever you visit, whatever the weather, you will be very comfortable.

Outside the Homestead has its own private garden and west facing veranda, perfect for that sunny evening drink! Don't forget, as well as the garden you have a whole 60 acre farm to explore complete with stream, childrens playhouses and tyre swing! We are also happy for guests to help us with feeding the farm animals and give families with children (5 years and over) a tractor ride during the school holidays.

Heating, bed linen, towels and robes are all included.

Remember we are in a great spot with lots to do all around, great countryside, fantastic beaches, fishing, horse riding, walking, surfing, canoeing, country houses, gardens and fresh air! Not to forget our lovely animails who will be your holiday neighbours!

The England region

The Homestead is situated in the heart of rural north Devon on the border with Cornwall, but just a stone throw from the lovely Market Town of Holsworthy with traditional shops and pubs.

If outdoor activities are your thing they are all available including cycling, walking, canoeing, surfing, golf, archery, coasteering and rock climbing.

We are close to lovely Tamar and Roadford lakes, Bodmin and Dartmoor.

We are an easy drive to Bude and its beaches, Boscastle, Hartland, Clovelly and lots of other lovely places including gardens at Rosemoor, the Eden project and various National Trust properties.

There are also plenty of attractions including steam railways, wildlife parks, kids theme parks etc!


The Homestead is situated at Southcombe Farm just to the southwest of the lovely Market Town of Holsworthy (less than 5 mins by car or about 30 mins walk).

The town has all of the traditional shops / pubs that you would expect, plus a Waitrose supermarket which also has a handy delivery service.

The Homestead is detached and positioned in it's own private / enclosed gardens. Your only neighbours are some distance away. Your hosts Paul and his family live in the Farmhouse and in the summer holidays the Barn in the farmyard is also let to guests.

Southcombe is a sheep farm complete with nature trail. It takes about 45 mins to complete and you could see anything from a frog to a deer! For families with children we are happy for you to be involved with morning feeding and during the school holidays Paul will organise a tractor ride for families with children aged 5 or over.
