About the property

Cottage in Georgeham, Nr. Croyde, North Devon, England - Quiet And Peaceful Location, lots of space. Perfect for families, surfers or guests with pets

Lower Orchard Cottage is situated on Crowborough Farm which lies just outside the very popular village of Georgeham, one of North Devon's prettiest and most sought after destinations. The cottage forms part of the old traditional farmyard, which is now covered, giving guests a huge dry space to play, leave bikes and surfboards and let pets run around. Just a short walk takes you into the village with its great shop/post office and two excellent award winning pubs. The stunning beaches of Croyde, Woolaccombe, Putsborough and Saunton are just a short drive or a 20 min walk. Guest have free access to the farmland, some 50 acres, which features an old quarry with a tree house, views of the sea and Lundy Island and the Great Oak Dome. You will also meet two huge friendly pigs, Penelope and George and Bessie and Kody the farm cats. This is the perfect destination if you want the freedom of outdoor space yet all the facilities of a village near by.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time in Georgeham. We loved the cottage and the pigs and cats and the barn. It is fantastic with children. We would have liked to stay longer, kids even wanted to live there J.(see attached pictures) My son (11 years old) dreams of having a farm and becoming a farmer.

My husband will write a review on Trip Advisor.


Many regards

Dorothea and family Summer 2014

I will certainly leave a great feedback on tripadvisor and we would love to come back to Lower Orchard again !

Thanks Suzanne

Dear Suzanne

Thanks for your email.  We really enjoyed our stay at Lower Orchard Cottage thank you.  Its the first time I've ever booked a cottage and what a lucky find to book this one.  And we were also lucky with the weather too.  I think my daughter would've liked us to bring Bessie the cat home with us as she just loved her!  I'm sure we'll be back again one day........and I'd definitely recommend the place to others I know.

Many thanks

Best wishes
