Lovely cottage with beautiful surroundings.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect christmas get away! The location is peaceful and the views over the fields to the sea and Lundy are stunning. The house is very clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Many thanks for the welcoming package and the eggs (very good); the christmas trees were nice. We enjoyed many walks and visited the surrounding areas, which were all stunning.

Thanks for having us.

Lovely, spacious cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend at Hugglepit. The cottage was perfect for a winter break - beautiful coastal walks and then lovely to have such a comfortable base to come back to, with a cosy fire and woodburner. The cottage was spotlessly clean, there was plenty of space (for 6 of us plus a dog), lovely views and a really well equipped kitchen. Angela was very helpful with the booking and the owners made us feel so welcome.

Thank you, we loved our stay and will definitely be back - for longer next time!

Lovely homely cottage in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Hugglepit. Angela was very helpful prior to our arrival and Denise was equally as helpful during our stay - bringing eggs from her chickens and thoughtfully sending a balloon and card for my Dad's 70th. The area is beautiful with lots of nice pubs, walks, coastline etc. The cottage is very well equipped and a practically layout with 2 sitting areas each with a log burner so it's very good for entertaining. As a party of 6 adults and 1 baby, the house didn't feel cramped at all and it's full of character and charm. We would love to return. Many thanks!

Wonderfully historic cottage

  • 5 of 5

Both Owners and Angela were extremely welcoming and very kind. The cottage and surrounding area is steeped in history and Extremely comfortable. The decor is lovely and the amenities plenty.

We had an amazing holiday and the children enjoyed meeting the chicks, ducks and hens, as well as, other wild life.

If you don't mind a drive then you can also use this as a base for venturing a little further down - which we did. We took full advantage of our location by visiting Clovelly, Hartland Point, Tintagel, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan - all of which provide picturesque photos if you enjoy using a camera, or just visiting for the sites. There was plenty to see and do and would recommend the cottage to all. I just wish we had a little longer.

Thank you for a wonderful stay x

Westward Ho!
Car: necessary

Hugglepit Cottage is an ideal holiday retreat for couples and families alike. From the rugged cliffs of Hartland Point to the sandy beaches of Westward Ho! and Bude and within easy walking distance of the picturesque village of Clovelly, Hugglepit Cottage has something for everyone.

For Children, the Milky Way adventure park is less than five minutes' drive away and the Big Sheep offers some extreme adventuring. For bigger kids, the surfing along the north coast of Cornwall is second to none in the UK. For cyclists and ramblers, Hugglepit is also close to the Tarka Trail and the South West coast path.

This 17th Century delight with exposed wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace sleeps up to seven people. Two sitting rooms provide ample space for families to spread out and relax, and an acre of gardens and woodland offers space to play, relax and explore.
