About Christina Leonard

Myself and my husband have been letting our two self catering holiday cottages for over 25 years. We enjoy meeting people coming to stay with us and helping them to enjoy their holiday. The cottages are within our 45 acre beef farm, on which we have numerous farm birds, chicken, ducks, peacocks and wild pheasants. Frequently I have children from the holiday cottages watching me with the poultry in the morning and helping to collect eggs!

We live in the farmhouse near the cottages and are on hand if you have any enquiries during your stay. The position of the cottages is completely separate from the farmhouse and allows for complete privacy.

We enjoy seeing guests using the swimming pool and making the most of the gardens and play areas.

Christina Leonard purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Christina Leonard chose Woolfardisworthy

These cottages were converted by ourselves from barns. In fact Millers cottage did used to be the Mill house for the local area and still has the original Mill stone laid in the gardens.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottages are peacefully located in the countryside allowing you to completely relax and unwind. There are lush, mature gardens for you to enjoy, the swimming pool, which you have your own key for access at your own convenience. The cottages are situated only a short drive to numerous tourist attractions, adventure parks, beautiful golden beaches, ideal for surfing. There are also numerous countryside and coastal walks in the North Devon area that guests often undertake. There are riding stables, close by and golf courses a short drive from the cottages. Being close to the cornish border, you could drive to some cornish beauty spots or places of interest, such as the Eden project.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Millers cottage - The cottage was perfect for us. The kids had a ball and we all really enjoyed ourselves. The owners were delightful and very friendly with out being intrusive. A very good location for exploring all along the Devon/north Cornwall coastline. The pool was great too, very warm, but the deep end is very deep so careful with little ones. Lots of lovely birds to watch too we were delighted to see Jays and nuthatch among others along with a rather cheeky squirrel that tried to pinch their food. (14 June 2014).

Millers cottage - A lovely cottage that was exactly what we were after. The excellent facilities provided for children (climbing frame, slide, trampoline, tractor) were excellent for our little one and the inclusion of the heated indoor pool was brilliant. Highly recommended :o) (12 April 2014).

Brilliant place to relax and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful cottage, lovely flowers and delicious home made scones and jam and cream and a few other essentials for you on arrival.

As you enter the cottage it greets you warmly and you feel at home and you think wow this is lovely.

My 3 small dogs really enjoyed the lovely garden, lots of new smells and birds to chase away.

I would definitely recommend going here for a relaxing break away from work etc cos that's what you will get.

Lovely friendly owners, and kids will love the swimming pool and the park and all the wildlife there. There is everything you need there.

I didn't want to go home at the end of my week I easily could of stayed another week. 😎

Comfortable and Spacious Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Received a warm welcome from Christine, who had left us a Devon Cream Tea, milk, teabags, coffee, and two lovely Easter Eggs which tasted great! Had a tour of the cottage and grounds, and then we settled in.

The cottage was clean, and all the beds were extremely comfortable. We were able to get a wifi signal, but no mobile signal. The cottage has all the amenities you could possibly need on holiday, with the garden ideal for our dog, who had a great holiday! We used the pool a number of times, which was very nice, and the games room, but it was a little to wet to make use of the trampoline and play area.

We visited Clovelly Village, Gnome Reserve, Milkyway Theme Park, Appledore, and Bucks Mill for the rocky beach for the dog, all of which are in easy reach of the cottage. The Fish and Chip Shop in Woolsery is also worth a visit. We travelled about 15 minutes away to Bideford for our food shop, which has the usual superstores.

I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely cottage, and I can only imagine how nice it is in the summer months when you have more sunshine!

Thank You Christine and family.

Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

Many local beaches ideal for surfing and miles of coastal paths for keen walkers to take advantage of along with numerous countryside walks.


The closest beach is 3 miles from the cottages at Buck's Mills but there are numerous beaches easily accessible. Westward Ho! is only a 10 minute drive and boasts a blue flag beach with long stretches of golden sand, perfect for surfing, kite surfing etc. There are also smaller beaches ideal for rock pooling and fishing along the coastline and we are happy to recommend beaches to fit your requirements.


The closest airport is at Exeter.


The nearest village to the cottages is 3/4 of a mile away and provides a well stocked village shop (cost cutter), fish and chip shop and post office. The historic port town of Bideford is a 10 mile drive away and offers all amenities.

Other local villages, within 2-3 miles include Clovelly, famous for its picturesque cobbled street and Hartland, with the dramatic scenery at the beautiful Hartland Quay, where the Atlantic meets the Bristol Channel.

Further Details:

Supermarkets and Banks are located in Bideford (10 miles) although many guests take advantage of grocery delivery service from supermarkets directly to the cottages. There are many fantastic pubs and restaurants in the area catering for a range of palates. The Pier house at Westward Ho! allows dining overlooking the sea and the restaurants in Instow and Appledore offer fresh locally caught seafood dishes. Closer to the cottage is the thatched Hoops Inn and the traditional Bell Inn at Parkham, both which serve an excellent standard of food.
