Broadsands Farmhouse is nestled on an exclusive resort near Combe Martin in north Devon. Combe Martin is a fabulous seaside resort with stunning sandy coves, some of the UK’s best rock pools and a fantastic selection of cafes, unique shops, pubs, and restaurants. The fish and chips are delicious! Combe Martin hosts many events celebrating its heritage and quirks including its annual Hunting of the Earl of Rone ceremony, a Pagan festival. The wonderful Southwest Coast Path runs through the village offering astonishing views and access to beaches and beauty spots that you may not otherwise see. You can hike to Great Hangman, the tallest sea cliff in Britain or take the two hundred and thirty steps down the Golden Cove. You can enjoy the calm waters of the bay on a boat, kayak, or stand-up paddle board.

The beaches in this wonderful area are quite extraordinary. Wild Pear Beach and Broadsands Beach are two of the most beautiful, secret coves. Wild Pear is reached via a dramatic descent from the coast path and is an idyllic, protected cove. Broadsands Beach was recently voted the ‘Happiest View in the UK’ with its special curved bay, turquoise sea, rock caves and trees. A network of tunnels hand-carved in the early nineteenth century lead to the wonderful Tunnels Beaches with their Victorian tidal swimming pool and sand and shingle private beaches. Barricane Beach boasts exotic shells, a delightful cafe and glorious sunsets. Lee Bay is a fabulously secluded spot looking out to the Bristol Channel. It is often called ‘Fuchsia Valley’ due to its bright red flowers. Woolacombe Beach is a three-mile-long sandy wonder that has been voted the ‘Best Beach in Britain’ and it is only twenty minutes from the resort. Putsborough Sands are on the south side of Woolacombe offering glorious surf and views of the headland. Just around the Baggy Point headland is the very pretty village of Croyde with its famous surfing beach. Backing the fabulous Saunton Sands is the impressive Braunton Burrows, a UNESCO biosphere reserve.

Coasteering is a popular thrilling sport with many experienced Coasteering and Adventure Sports companies operating at Watermouth Harbour, the next bay along from Combe Martin. Brave participants enjoy climbing over dramatic rocks, jumping into the sea, swimming through gullies and exploring caves. Horse riding on Exmoor is also popular with the Dean Riding Stables.

The National Trust’s Arlington Court and Carriage Museum is a great day out with formal Victorian gardens, ponds, deer, plenty of space for picnics and an impressive collection of horse-drawn vehicles. It is a gem on the edge of Exmoor that has been in the Chichester family for over five hundred years. The gardens enjoy herbaceous borders, a fountain, walled kitchen garden and a conservatory brimming with exotic plants from around the world. There are pleasure grounds with gorgeous views, a wilderness pond, and a deer park wood. The old kitchen tearoom is lovely and offers tasty treats. There is also an excellent second-hand bookshop. Watersmeet is a dramatic river gorge and ancient woodland with a National Trust tearoom set in stunning surroundings. You can treat yourselves to delicious Devon cream teas and be captivated by the amazing landscapes and woodland trails.

Twelve miles away, the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway opened in 1890 and is an excellent way to enjoy the wonderful coastal views between the two villages. Another popular trip is to Lundy Island which lies ten nautical miles off the coast. The ferry leaves from Ilfracombe Harbour taking you to this delightful island with its wildlife, big skies and gorgeous scenery.

The pretty, historic fishing village of Clovelly is worth a stop. It was once owned by the Queen of England and clings to the four-hundred-foot cliff where there is no traffic. Steep cobbled streets tumble down to its ancient fishing harbour and 14th century quay.

Reviews

  • Wonderful stay at a dog friendly farmhouse!

    on 23/08/2023

    It is hard to find somewhere to stay with 3 lively dogs which also lives up to the comfort and luxury which us two legged folk would like. Broadsands farmhouse had it all. Spacious, clean and comfortable with a wonderful farmhouse kitchen, hot tub to relax in whilst looking at the glorious views over the valley, smart tv to keep everyone happy on evenings in and wonderful surroundings including a field just for the dogs to stretch their legs. Other facilities on-site include a heated indoor swimming pool, bbq facilities and little shop on site.
    Alice, the owner, was always on hand to offer advice on the local area, good places to eat and the best beaches/ cliffs to walk the dogs.
    We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a dog friendly holiday where you can also spoil yourselves!

  • Wonderful place to spend your holiday

    on 26/06/2023

    Very special place to stay plenty of things to do and see, the farm animals were delightful and such fun. Broadsands Farm house was very comfortable and clean.

    We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Broadsands Farmhouse. The house had so much character but also space. Beds were wonderfully comfortable and we all slept brilliantly after all the sea air.

    The kids loved the animals, the play area and the pool plus there is so much to do in the local area. Combe Martin beach is an absolute gem - I almost don’t want to tell people about it!

    Alice was super helpful with recommendations for local providers of kayaking and surfing and the digital guide was a godsend.

    We had a wonderful time and have already booked to come back next summer…. Just need the same fantastic weather!

  • Fabulous week at the Broadsands Farmhouse

    on 30/07/2022

    Our second holiday at Broadsands Farmhouse and we enjoyed it just as much as our first visit. There was plenty to do for two pre-school children with an outdoor playground complete with pirate ship, playhouse and trampoline, an indoor play space and plenty of chances to feed the animals.

    Our three generation family all loved the beautiful, warm indoor swimming pool as well as the private hot tub on our terrace with fabulous views of the Devon hills. The main rooms of Broadsands Farmhouse were spacious and comfortable with lots of games, books and a doll’s house. A great week with a warm welcome from Alice who looks after her guests in a friendly relaxed way.
    The property is perfectly positioned close to beaches as well as countryside and we enjoyed trips to Woolacombe, Linton and Lynmouth, Braunton and Ilfracombe and Arlington Court (National Trust).

  • A hidden Gem!

    on 06/05/2022

    Although Familiar with Devon and Cornwall, this part of Devon was somewhere we had never visited before and wondered why! The property is set in the most idyllic location nestled atop a valley with amazing views across the hills and valleys and only a short distance from some of the most beautiful beaches in England (at least in our opinion). It seemed less crowded, and the coastal walks and scenery were breathtaking. We didn't have children with us although wish we had as there was a swimming pool, activities, and animals galore (we rather took to the Alpaca)! Alice our host provided such a warm and friendly welcome and pointed us in the right direction to the best walks, beaches, pubs, and places to visit – thank you. To sum up - A hidden gem and on driving home talked about when we might return!

  • Easter at Broadsands Farmhouse

    on 19/04/2022

    We stayed at the Broadsands Farmhouse for a week over Easter and couldn't have been happier. From the moment we arrived my children (aged 7 & 8) fell in love with the animals and grounds, and we did too.

    Alice and her family did everything possible to make our stay perfect down to the small things like a lovely welcome basket of goodies, a few laundry tablets (which were a life saver), dishwasher tablets, and an absolutely stellar welcome manual in app form which we made endless use of.

    The accommodation and onsite amenities couldn't have been better; the animals, pool, hot tub, play park, games room, lookout and views were all spectacular. We enjoyed evenings bat spotting from the hot tub while looking out to the changing colours of the valley as the sun set, listening to the sheep and cows across the valley in the various field - we even witnessed a ewe give birth to two lambs a field along.

    Nearby we enjoyed days exploring the caves at the beach in Combe Martin, the sand dunes at Saunton Sands, shell hunting at Baracane beach, digging and building sandcastles at Woolacombe, taking the funicular in Lynton (to find ourselves above the clouds in Lynmouth) and finally, climbing at Valley of Rocks and a hack across Exmoor from Brendon Manor Stables (Lynton).

    The week really couldn't have been better and our children are already begging to go back - thank you!

  • Superb accommodation in the heart of North Devon

    on 03/03/2022

    We had the most wonderful stay here. Superb facilities, brilliantly comfy beds, we would definitely visit again

  • Feb half term mini-break

    on 19/02/2022

    Brilliant February half term break in Broadsands Farmhouse. Loads of space for our family of five (3 teenagers). Very warm welcome from Alice and family with lots of advice on things to do and see. Information app was very useful to have prior to the stay to help plan our few days and get familiar with the facilities. Great location in north Devon for beaches, walks and days out. Had fun in the games room with table tennis and table football - very kind of Ella and Daniel to take us on! Log fire got plenty of use in the evenings. Lovely heated indoor swimming pool plus our own hot tub with fantastic views of the valley. Looking forward to a return visit (minus Storm Eunice!)

  • Autumn escape

    on 16/10/2021

    A very friendly welcome to a beautifully situated property. The views are superb and you are just a short distance from Combe Martin.
    The beds were very comfortable and the farmhouse was filled with traditional features. We didn’t realise it had so many places with low beams and found this difficult.
    Hot tub and pool added luxury. Plus the sunshine made it a lovely relaxing holiday.

  • We would love to return

    on 02/10/2021

    We had a lovely stay in Broadsands Farmhouse. Our granddaughter loved feeding the animals every morning and swimming every evening. The honesty shop is a fantastic idea and we had a few lovely evening meals. I have never stayed in a cottage with such a well stocked kitchen. We had a week of mostly rain but we managed to get out and about with lots to do in the surrounding area. The hot tub was an added bonus after a long dog walk in the rain. We would love to return bringing our extended family but maybe in the summer months when the sun is shining and the evenings are longer

  • Just perfect

    on 21/09/2021

    Broadsands Farmhouse was perfect for three generations of our family to enjoy a relaxing late summer week. There was so much on site to keep the two pre-school children happy and active and it was an easy drive to the seaside. The house felt spacious and comfortable and had great views from the terrace. We liked it so much that we’ve booked again for next year.

  • A family friendly holiday

    on 18/09/2021

    A spacious house, suitable for families to share with lots of facilities immediately on site for young children. Swimming pool, play areas and animals kept our grandson entertained during the day; while our own hot tub, walks and lovely views offered relaxation for the adults. Owner and staff very pleasant and approachable.

  • Perfect

    on 11/09/2021

    I could say how awful the place is to discourage others from booking and making it easier for our family to book again. However that would be unfair as everything was just perfect. I loved that the proprietor Alice lived on the site with her family, Ella and Daniel are lovely to chat with, it made the experience feel even more homely and of course it was easy to ask questions, get ideas of where to go in the area etc.

    The whole set up is just wonderful. Highly recommended.

  • A warm welcome

    on 30/05/2021

    A well organised set up with great views. Wonderful for children once we get back to normal. The lovely extras of hot tub (although it would not accommodate 6), and the heated pool was great. The honesty shop was really useful offering the basics. We received a warm welcome and Alice was immediately on hand with any queries we had.

  • Very happy long weekend

    on 21/04/2021

    We spent 3 nights with our 3 children (9,7,3) and had a wonderful time. The adults loved the stunning views, country location and the detail inside the house (good linen, coffee machine, fresh eggs on arrival). Our children adored the animals, collecting eggs, roaming on a big, safe site with lots of fun play activities (trampoline, ship, play house) and a fire pit. Our hosts were great - responsive and made us feel very welcome. We’d definitely visit again.

  • Third visit in three years

    on 05/09/2020

    This was our third visit to Combe Martin House and our first stay in Broadsands Farmhouse, having previously stayed in Holdstone Cottage. We had a brilliant holiday and were delighted to be back again. Broadsands Farmhouse is a lovely property and gave our family of five plenty of space to relax whilst on holiday. Our sons were very excited because you can see the animal enclosures from the house, as well as the swimming pool front door. As always, the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We hope to return again next year!

  • Always a Wonderful Stay

    on 27/07/2020

    We've stayed here three times now. It's always a lovely break, ideal for small children.
    The little farm, playground, pool and grounds can all be enjoyed in good or bad weather and the beaches aren't far away.

  • A fabulous property with stunning views in great location for exploring Devon coast and attractions

    on 20/07/2020

    Amazing family holiday. Broadsands Farmhouse was bursting with character features including large 4 poster bed, whilst also providing everything you could need for a luxury self-catering break, including BBQ, Netflix and hot-tub to ease the muscles after a glorious walk on the coast path. The children loved the well-equipped playground and the numerous animals (especially the friendly goats and feeding scraps to the pig). Grandparents enjoyed the flat nature walk through the fields taking in the stunning views down the valley. Next time we look forward to enjoying the indoor swimming pool and games room.
    The property is ideally located as a base to enjoy all the natural beauty and attractions that North Devon has to offer. We spent days on magnificent sandy beaches with rock pools and sand dunes, whilst also finding time to walk parts of the coast path with its impressive sea cliffs, explore Exmoor and its ponies, and visited lovely towns/villages such as Lynton, Berrynarbor, Ilfracombe Harbour. There is so much to do in the area. Next time we've got the dinosaur park, zoo and Watermouth Castle on the list of attractions to visit. We would like to thank everybody on-site for their warm hospitality throughout our stay and for their thorough cleaning protocols that made us feel very safe in this first week following coronavirus lock-down.

  • Amazing holiday

    on 29/04/2019

    Broadsands Farmhouse was spotlessly clean with lovely furnishings , washing machine, dishwasher, large choice of books & games and its own hot tub! Outside patio with table & chairs and barbecue.
    The amenities provided were outstanding. Swimming pool, soft play area with table tennis & table football, trampoline and outdoor play areas. Goats, guinea pigs, alpacas, hens, ducks and pigs. Our grandchildren loved being able to walk freely in the animals pens.
    The owners & staff were very helpful in the booking process and during our stay. They were able to recommend places to eat and where to visit. So many things to do within 15 mile radius. Fantastic beaches.
    I can highly recommend it- 5 star accommodation & amenities.

  • Lovely April stay

    on 16/04/2019

    A charming place with a charming host, stunning location, all beautifully done. Great facilities for families - the pool was fantastic and the play area, farmyard and grounds were a huge hit with the children. Lovely little touches too, with complimentary juices, White Company toiletries and eggs from the chickens. The only small gripe was around the heating which could have done with a boost on the chilly winter mornings, but even that was mitigated by the very effective fire.
