Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Outstanding holiday cottage complex with Grade II Listed 6 bedroom, 5 reception room farmhouse and 8 delightful cottages on the Hartland Peninsula with sea views over the North Devon coast


The property sits in a delightful position in the middle of the Hartland Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty recognised by the Council for the Protection for Rural England as having no light or noise pollution. The Hartland Heritage Coast, around 1 mile away, offers spectacular coastal vistas where the rolling North Devon countryside meets the Atlantic Ocean. The area offers many draws for tourists including National Trust properties and gardens, family attractions such as the Milky Way and Big Sheep, nearby Lundy Island, and Hartland Abbey and Hartland Quay. For outdoor enthusiasts nearby there are deserted beaches and coves, delightful wooded valleys and the South West Coast path.


The property offers a large 6 bedroom farmhouse, dating from the 15th Century which provides spacious owners' accommodation with separate private gardens and access driveway. There are eight luxury letting cottages providing high quality guest accommodation and on site leisure is provided in a separate building with gym, spa facilities, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. There is a large agricultural building which currently provides indoor parking and amenities such as the staff laundry and storage areas. This would be ideally suited to development to provide further cottages or further indoor leisure, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

Planning permission has been granted and secured through the commencement of works for the construction of 4 further units of letting accommodation. A separate permission which relates to the extension of the Spa building was granted but has subsequently lapsed. Outside there are gardens and grounds of circa 7 acres (2.8 hectares) with sea views.

Outside there is a children's play area and a gently sloping field facing the sea which would be well suited for development as a 'glamping' site, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Amenities are provided in a large agricultural barn including staff laundry facilities, cleaning store and further storage areas. This barn also provides covered parking for guests with 12 spaces. This may be suitable for development either as an additional indoor leisure area or as further cottage accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Overall there are gardens and grounds extending to approximately 7 acres (2.8 hectares).

The present owners have lived at the property for 20 years but recently have been unable to devote their full attention to the Cottages due to other business commitments and since the business has been run by mangers. There is a considerable trading upside to be had for an owner occupier. Lettings are through the bespoke website and through the letting agents English Country Cottages and Cottages For You. Detailed trading information can be made available to genuine applicants.
