About Robert Bourne

We (Bob & Pauline) are the proud owners of Northway. We love to welcome people for the first time or back for one of their many return visits.

The most important thing to us is that people enjoy their stay here and we do everything we can to make that happen. Happily, judging by the feedback and number of return bookings we succeed in doing so. We look forward to meeting you.

Robert Bourne purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Robert Bourne chose Horns Cross

We came to Northway in 2004 having fallen in love with the place. As soon as you arrive and see the spectacular views you know you are somewhere special.

The local beaches offer vast expanses of sand and rockpools, waterfalls and spectacular views. Dartmoor and Exmoor are short drives away.

There is a range of family friendly attractions within easy access.

We never experience overcrowded roads or beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

Our superb situation means that our guests can easily explore the locality on foot, bicycle or by car, with the nearest pub in Horns Cross, being only a quarter of a mile away. A walk of less than half a mile leads to the spectacular North Devon Coastal Path... and a further half a mile leads you to the pebble, shingle and sand beach at Peppercombe. A particularly beautiful walk in the spring when the flowers are at their best. (The area is protected as an area of scientific interest because of its abundance of wild flowers.)

There is a range of safe sandy beaches a short car ride away.

The night sky is a riot of stars due to the lack of light pollution, and the days are a peaceful haven from the rigours of everyday life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have achieved the WOW factor here, we instantly felt relaxed and at home. Northway has excellent facilities and a lovely location. The animals give that special touch and are a real winner with the children.

I have never experienced such a truly relaxing oasis of a place. Everyone should have a holiday here – the world would be a better place.

I'm supposed to be working but I keep staring at the web camera shots instead as it reminds me of our lovely holiday in Granary last month! My son keeps telling all his friends about his holiday house where he gave a horsey a carrot (which isn't actually true - he was too scared so he made his 1 year old sister feed the animals while he watched from the comfort of his daddy's arms!).

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this cottage over the Easter break. It is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Bob and Pauline are super friendly and helpful. There is plenty to keep the children entertained, a pool, a games room and lots of farm animals. Would definitely recommend.

Car: recommended


We enjoy fine views of the North Devon Coastline from our elevated position between Bideford and Clovelly. Our superb situation means that our guests can easily explore the locality on foot, bicycle or by car. Set in five acres overlooking Bideford Bay we are ideally situated for visiting the beaches of North Devon and North Cornwall. Walk from our cottages to Peppercombe beach (20 minutes walk), cycle the Tarka Trail, or visit the picture postcard village of Clovelly.


Nearest airports are Exeter, Newquay and Bristol. A hire car is recommended. Nearest railway station is Barnstaple.


Distance to Bideford (5 miles), Barnstaple (15 miles).

Further Details:

The village of Horns Cross is only a quarter a mile away, and there are two pubs within walking distance. Supermarkets, banks etc are all to be found in Bideford which is a 10 minute drive away.
