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

Fabulous Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

It's a really nice, clean cottage set in a little rural hamlet. We enjoyed our stay and it's a great base to explore more of North Devon. Would love to come back again.

Lovely few days at Rosies Cottage In September.

  • 4 of 5

We were met by Christina and she gave us a conducted tour of the cottage and gardens. We were made very welcome and it seemed that nothing was too much trouble . Very fortunate with the weather which was mostly sunny. Clovelley village is a must visit. If you get the chance at a local restaurant the Parkham sausages are the best you will ever taste.

Very peaceful, very friendly, very clean

  • 5 of 5

Lovely quiet place in the country and so clean. Lots to keep the kids amused. Never expected such a big pool. Wifi was good the whole time we were there. Christina and her husband were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Kids loved it especially the 1 year old - please say sorry to the peacock and his peahen and peachick for the way he tried to terrorise them

Really lovely little cottage, perfect for a small family

  • 5 of 5

Before we arrived the owners checked the age of the children I was bringing and made up the bedrooms appropriately. My niece and nephew loved this and it made them feel at home. The cottage had everything we needed and the owners were extremely welcoming. The swimming pool is great. The children loved the trampoline too. There is also everything you need in the village shop plus the Fishχp shop is lovely. We visited Westward Ho! Beach which is a mixture of rocks and sand so lots to do. The Milky Way adventure park was great for the children and the Gnome Reserve was fun too.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I always try to use age appropriate bed linen to help young children settle and feel at home quicker. There is lots to see and do in this area and I'm pleased you enjoyed our facilities too.

A Lovely, spotless cottage that like a home from home

  • 5 of 5

My Two Daughters (10 and 14) and I stayed for 3 nights in July, and had a wonderful time, I only wish we had arrange to stay longer. The cottage itself is lovely, very comfy and has everything you could need. The kitchen is very well equipped. Each bedroom has its own shower room, and there is a separate bathroom too! Christine was very welcoming and made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. Then on top of all this, there is the indoor swimming pool, which my daughters made good use of, and the games room with pool darts and table tennis. The gardens are beautiful too, with plenty to occupy children, with swings slides and such. It is situated is a very quite and peaceful location, so there really is nothing I could fault at all. I would highly recommend this property for anyone who was looking to visit the area of Devon/Cornwall.

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.
