About the property

Cottage in Hartland. Walk To The Shops And Pubs - 5 Minutes To The Beach - 3 Miles From The Coast

Bay Tree Cottage is well suited to those wanting to explore the North Devon coast or those who want to relax in a village where they can simply pop across the road to the shops or stroll to the pub for a drink or a meal. Visitors love the idea of picking up their daily paper and fresh loaf of bread and then relaxing in the courtyard garden and in the Winter there is nothing better than opening a bottle of wine in front of the lovely electric woodburner. Spend the day walking the coast and come home to a warm and cosy cottage or just spend the day doing nothing but relaxing. Whatever you intend to do when you visit Hartland you can be assured that Bay Tree will be sure to welcome you home at the end of the day.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cottage. It’s well equipped for families and even has stair gates which was a welcome surprise for us as we have a climbing toddler. Our dog also had a good time!

Hartland is a lovely village and the pub has a great beer garden. We were lucky with the gorgeous weather.

Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little cottage lovingly furnished to make it feel cosy & homely. Everything you could need or want,home from home. It’s the little touches which make it extra special, we were greeted with a cream tea & Easter eggs. Great outdoor space which we would have utilised more if it hadn’t been for the rain. Quaint little village, at night you could hear a pin drop! Fantastic village shop which always seemed to be open! I would definitely recommend & would stay again.

A wonderful stay in a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Bay Tree has everything you could possibly need! The cottage is very comfortable and beautifully presented (the attention to detail is fantastic) with some lovely finishing touches (cream tea and fresh flowers upon arrival).

The garden is fabulous! Having the outside entrance is perfect for wet surf boards and dogs!

The Cottage is perfectly located in the village, everything you need is very close by and the shops and amenities are well stocked.

Thank you to Jill and Zoe for a wonderful stay. From the first enquiry to arriving, you have been brilliant. Very un-intrusive and laid back.

Hartland is wonderful, the Quay is just spectacular! A great location for both the Devon and North Cornish surf spots! Looking forward to returning again soon.

Luxury holiday

  • 5 of 5

Well there isn't much to say about Bay Tree Cottage apart from fabulous. Brilliant base for a walking holiday, many walks straight from the door in a forgotten part of North Devon.

Arrived to a beautiful cream tea, which we ate in the sechuled suntrap garden.

Thank you Jill for making our holiday perfect from booking to leaving.

Well worth a visit

A hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website really don't do this cottage the credit that it's worth. It is an absolute hidden gem.

We arrived to find a cream tea awaiting us, and a pint of milk in the fridge for us, all these little extra's really added to the holiday.

Hartland is a great central point to be based if you want to explore both Devon and Cornwall.

Highly reccommend it to anyone who is looking for a great week away in a beautiful part of the UK.

Thanks to Jill for the welcome we received.
