About the property

E1597

A cosy, countryside cluster of self-catering farm cottages close to Hartland Abbey and a heart-thumpingingly wild stretch of the South West Coast Path. Very child and dog-friendly, with Atlantic views from the play area, pet animals, hot tub, sauna, woodburners, private outdoor spaces and barbecues.

An easy-going, secluded place for country lovers to unwind, with or without their children and dogs. Come for simple things like silence, clean Atlantic air, star-gazy skies and Scrabble by the fire. Walkers love the wild, craggy beauty of the South West Coast Path around the Hartland Peninsula. Surfers take to the waves at the slightest opportunity. Everyone gathers at Hartland Quay, for sunsets, swimming, and a pint at The Wreckers. And there’s plenty to visit too – Gardens, galleries – cream tea rooms of course - steeply cobbled Clovelly, and Lundy Island - a helicopter hop from the Point or a boat trip from Bideford.

About Annie Shillito

The 6 of us: Annie Shillito & Quentin Craven, Vicky & Ian Irving and their young children, live in Cheristow Farmhouse and look after our guests in the cottages and the animals down by the pond. We've 3 cocker spaniels between us and your well-behaved dogs are very welcome too. We hope you will all enjoy being here and exploring the area as much as we do.

Annie Shillito purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Annie Shillito chose Torridge

We wanted to live somewhere wild and beautiful, yet not too far from a small town and engaging people - Cheristow fits the bill!

It's close to a craggily dramatic stretch of the South West Coast Path, not far from sandy beaches and the walk to Hartland, through ancient woods, takes about 20 minutes (to drive there takes 5)

What makes this cottage unique

We came here for simple things like silence, clean Atlantic air, star-gazy skies and the wild, craggy beauty of the South West Coast Path around the Hartland Peninsula. So, there's great walking and surfing, swimming and sunsets and there’s plenty to visit: gardens, galleries, cream tea rooms, steeply cobbled Clovelly, and Lundy Island - a helicopter hop from the Point or a boat trip from Bideford. We're 15 miles from both Bude and Bideford, 3 miles (10 minutes drive) off the A39; well-placed for exploring North Devon and North Cornwall.

Perfect little cottage. Spotless and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The Stables cottage was one of several farm outbuildings that have been perfectly done up. Lots of evidence of the original buildings but homely and comfortable. Sorry about killing the oven glove used for putting the logs on to the woodburner - we forgot to take it off the top when we fired it up! The hot tub and sauna were brilliant for the cold nights and what a great idea for booking hour slots so we could have it all to ourselves! Would recommend and hope to return in better weather. Thank you Annie.

Cheristow farm cottages.

  • 5 of 5

The listed description was accurate and the cottage clean and warm on our arrival. It was well equipped, warm and cosy throughout our stay with great views from some cottages. Hot tub and sauna very warming on cold winter evenings and excellent walking nearby. Helpful and friendly hosts. We would return and recommend.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

A last minute booking for a long weekend away and wow what a find! These lovely little cottages are all that you would need and more, the hot tub and sauna are a very welcome addition for the adults after the days adventures. The cottages are ideally located as you can walk through well laid out footpaths straight to Hartland Peninsula where the views are simply stunning. We then walked the coastal paths and back, the children thoroughly loved exploring, the waterfalls, the woods, just about everything. As they raced back to the cottage they still had the energy to play on the climbing frames

I was well in need of the hot tub!

The owners of the cottage were warm and friendly and simply could not do enough to help, this included lighting the wood burner so that the cottage was toasty.

We will return for longer next time!

Fantastic cottage stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the brilliant Cheristow Farm Cottages - we stayed in The Stables, cottage. The cottage had everything we could possible need, including a word burning stove to enjoy in the evenings. The rooms (a double and a twin) were large compared to other properties we have stayed in, and the 4 of us (mum, dad, and two growing boys) and Jack Russell dog didn't at any time feel cramped. The hosts were excellent too - wee were welcomed with scones, cream, and jam. Extra firewood, no problem! A visit to watch the farm animals being fed, no problem. My youngest son insists that the weekend stay at Cheristow was even better than a week in the South of France earlier in the year - can't say better than that. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cheristow Farm Cottages as the ideal base for a break in North Devon.

Very comfortable stay in glorious surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is comfortable and well furnished with everything you need to feel at home. Though we'd expected to eat in the pub in the evenings the cottage was too lovely to leave so we cooked there. There's a wood burning stove, and what could be better than an evening by the fire after a sauna and the hot tub. The cliffs are fantastically rugged and beautiful and Hartland village seems full of interest. I definitely hope to revisit.
