About the Owner

My husbands family have farmed at Aldercombe for over 100 years. Richard is a fourth generation dairy farmer. We milk pedigree holstein cows and sell our milk to Dairy Crest who make Cathedral City Cheese. Visitors to our farm often find a guided tour very interesting, and enjoy seeing the calves and cows up close.

Our young family enjoy the space at Aldercombe, giving them a chance to have their own ponies, who live at the farm.

We have stayed in a lot of holiday rental homes and this was one of the best. A gorgeous barn in a lovely location. The property was really clean and well equipped with all you would need. It was also very child safe so extra relaxing for parents. Super town and beaches nearby. Fab.

Location

From the Owner

We as a family love this area. The farm is down a long lane and secluded. That said, the village is only a mile and a half away, and has a varied amount of independently owned shops and eateries.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Sandymouth beach is some 4 miles from Aldercombe by car. It is rated as having excellent water quality in 2014. Sandymouth is a National Trust beach and has a large, manned car park with 200 spaces at the top of the cliff. Summerleaze and Crooklets beaches are found 7 miles away in Bude and also were as rated excellent in 2014. Summerleaze also boasts a seapool nestled at the foot of the cliffs. Slightly further away is the glorious Widemouth bay beach. All are covered by lifeguards

Travel:

Newquay airport approx 50 miles

Exeter airport approx 65 miles

Barnstaple train station approx 30 miles Bude bus station 7 miles.

We are a rural location, and for ease of travel, it is recommended that guests have the use of a car to make exploring the area as easy as possible. There is only a limited bus service from the village.

Distances:

Aldercombe Barn is a mile and a half from the nearest village which has a choice of local independent shops, pubs and takeaways. Bude is 7 miles away and has a wider choice of excellent eating places. 3 supermarkets can be found in Bude, along with banks and cash point machines. Exploring from Aldercombe is easy with major tourist attractions being in easy reach. The A39 can take you to Boscastle in 30 minutes, Padstow 50 minutes, Clovelly in 40 mins, Eden Project in 50 minutes.

Further Details:

Bude is the local town and offers much to do. There are 35 miles to walk around the canal tow paths, with bistros and cafe's en route. The castle remains at Bude provide interest, along with cliff top walks. On wet weather days there is a ten pin bowling alley, play zone and indoor heated swimming pool with slide and wave machine. Fishing and water sports are popular tourist activities at Tamar Lakes, just a couple of miles away by car.

Facilities

From the Owner

Step outside the back door of Aldercombe Barn and walking, running or exercising the dog couldn't be easier. Footpaths take you to either the village, or across rugged farmland paths to the Tamar Lakes, taking in wonderful rural scenery. Located near to the seaside town of Bude, there are plenty of beautiful beaches, clifftop walks and fine eating places.
