Bradworthy, Devon, England
Lake Villa Holiday Cottages and Hidden Lakes are situated in rural north Devon just three miles form the cornish border. If you want a peaceful location, with lots of outdoor space, dark night skies, and a 20 minute drive to some of the best beaches in the uk...then this is the property for you. We have hosted many family holidays, celebrations, birthday gatherings and party weekends (out of season) The three cottages sleep up to 7, 5, and 2, so a total of 14 plus cots. There is a flower-filled courtyard and parking right outside plus access to the lovely gardens and tennis court. 200 metres away is our own mini nature reserve, our 6 acre meadow and 2 lakes, one for fishing, a bbq and a fire pit is available along with a cabin to make yourselves a cuppa in. Children and pets are welcome.
This is a great location for families/groups who l...

This is a curious place. All three cottages were booked for a family group and we stayed in Swallow Barn. Let's start with the positives. A number of my family stayed next door in the Farmhouse. The decor, the finish, the thoughtful touches, the furniture...More

About the neighbourhood
Bradworthy's carnival takes place on Bank Holiday Monday at the end of August. There is an arts festival in the Barnstaple area in June and St Peters Fair in Holsworthy in July. Live music can be seen in various local pubs including the Bradworthy Inn once a month or so.

Getting around
You will need a car
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 100.0 km
Railway: Barnstaple: 40.0 km
Ferry: Plymouth: 80.0 km
If travelling from abroad then fly into Exeter, (distance to us 1 hour), Bristol (2 hours), Heathrow (3-4 hours) or Gatwick (4 hours). A car is essential in this very rural area, so collect a hire car from the airport. Alternatively, take the car ferry to Plymouth from Roscoff in France or Santander in Spain (distance from Plymouth 1.5 hours). If arriving from the continent on a ferry into Dover, or by the Channel Tunnel, it will take approximately 5 hours to drive to us.

For travelling from the UK, turn off the M5 at Junction 27. Follow this road all the way to Barnstaple and then Bideford. Turn off at Bideford and take the road through the town in the direction of Torrington. 1 mile after leaving Bideford take the turn off signposted Bradworthy (as well as a few other places)....
