Our cottages are in an enviable location being situated in the tiny hamlet of Mead, which has remained largely unchanged for 150 years, and is next to our little village Welcombe (which is mentioned in the Domesday Book!).
As well as being in a splendid situation that is able to offer the best of North Devon and Cornwall, our position also offers our guests the best of both the country and coast environments.
In one direction country lanes wind round verdant rolling meadows spotted with cows and sheep. Thatched inns can be discovered by following footpaths through ancient woodlands which almost feel overloaded with unspoilt flora and fauna no matter what the time of year.
In the other direction a few minutes’ walk will deliver you to the stunning Welcombe Mouth with its beach, surfing, dramatic cliffs, waterfall and remarkable unobstructed views directly west out over the Atlantic. From here you can pick up the famous South West Coast path along this old wrecking shoreline for challenging walks and the most impressive vistas.
The wildlife, geology, heritage and scenery available in and around Welcombe create a particular bucolic charm that perhaps reminds those who visit of how England was fifty years past.
If this brief introduction has appeal, then please explore our website a little more and take a look at our cottages to see what facilities we have to offer our guests and what attractions are within an easy daytrip’s reach.
