Little Northcott

Sleeps 8 | 4 bedrooms | 3 bath/wc

Little Northcott is a beautiful four-bedroom property tucked away in a secluded corner of our working farm in the valley of Northcott. Perfect for large families or two families holidaying together, the property has spacious living accommodation for up to eight people.   Little Northcott also has a large private enclosed garden with raised patio with luxury hot tub. Stylish and contemporary, Little Northcott is only a 15 minute walk from the dog-friendly beach of Northcott Mouth and the Cornish Coast Path, and two miles from the popular seaside resort of Bude, with its wealth of activities, restaurants and pubs (the local village pub is only half a mile away.)

Take the children to meet the cows, pigs, Bubbles and Tiny Tim the ponies, Rosie the donkey, Bella the horse and Milly the goat who are all residents at Northcott Farm.

Guests staying at Little Northcott are welcome to use all the facilities at Court Farm, Marhamchurch (4.5 miles away). The swimming pool is available to Northcott Farm guests between midday and 3pm during peak season and school holidays to avoid overcrowding.
