Muddlebridge House and Holiday Cottages Devon Large group Family friendly Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage in Barnstaple, Devon, England


Seven delightful, well equipped holiday cottages, on superb small complex with indoor pool, games rooms, play areas, cycle hire. Close to local shops, pubs and services and to shopping and leisure facilities in Barnstaple. Fabulous beaches nearby.

Our delightful small complex of seven  comfortably furnished and well equipped cottages provides an excellent range of guest facilities and is situated in a superb semi-rural setting less than 3 miles from the thriving regional town of Barnstaple.

The cottages were created in 1985 by the skilful conversion of three adjacent blocks of stone barns, stables and outbuildings which formed part of the original estate of Muddlebridge House, a gentleman's residence dating back over 200 years. The cottages offer a range of accommodation to cater for couples, young families, extended family groups, and adult groups. Each cottage has its own quite unique layout and design, offering 1, 2 and 3 bedroom options to accommodate from 2 to 6 people in comfort (with the option to add an additional cot in most cottages).  Cottages have been continuously improved and updated since the current owners acquired the business in 1992, with carpets, sofas/chairs, TV's, beds/mattresses, and kitchens all the subject of significant recent investment.

Within the grounds of approximately 3 acres, Muddlebridge provides an extensive range of onsite facilities to cater for all ages.  The heated indoor swimming pool, open daily from Easter to the end of October (and sometimes over Christmas and New Year)  is housed in a light and spacious building, where guests can also enjoy the large sauna cabin. The two Games Rooms provide table tennis, table football and a pool table, as well as housing an information display and a small library of books covering all ages from toddlers to adults. The main rear garden area offers a superb range of play and games, including trampolines, a playhouse, swings, monkey bars, climbing frame, mini soccer pitch, badminton court, and basketball stand. There is also a small pets corner. The summerhouse verandah provides the perfect spot for parents to relax while children play, but there are several other sheltered spots where guests can enjoy a peaceful read or outdoor drink, also patios equipped with picnic benches and barbecues.. We keep a good selection of adult and childrens cycles and childrens wetsuits for guests to hire on a daily basis during the main season. 

Muddlebridge House and Holiday Cottages is set in a very convenient (many guests say 'brilliant') semi-rural location, set back from the B3233, between the two thriving villages of Bickington and Fremington. These two villages, each just 8-10 mins walk or 2 mins by car, offer an excellent range of local shops and services, including well-stocked convenience stores, post office, chemist, GP surgery, (award winning) fish and chip shop, and several pubs/restaurants. Just 3 miles away (less than 10 mins by car) is the picturesque waterside village of Instow with a lovely sandy beach, further pub/restaurant options, an excellent locally owned delicatessen/convenience store and truly spectacular sunset views of the Taw and Torridge estuaries across to the pretty village of Appledore and out to the Atlantic.  Less than 15 minutes away by car, to the south, is the superb long sandy beach of Northam Burrows and Westward Ho!, the nearest of several outstanding safe and sandy Atlantic beaches, all popular with surfers, which make up the spectacular North Devon coastline.  To the north, 20-30 minutes drive away, are the renowned beaches of Saunton, Croyde, and Woolacombe.  We are also well located for guests wishing to take in some of the more rugged coast and countryside of North Devon, such as at Hartland Quay, Clovelly, Bucks Mills, and, to the north, Baggy Point, Lee Bay, Lynton and Lynmouth, as well as being conveniently located for visits to many of the theme/adventure/farm parks in the area.  Less than 100 metres from our drive entrance are the bus stops for the North Devon Wave service (no.21) with a 10-min daytime frequency in each direction.  

Finally, a fantastic bonus for guests is our proximity to historical Fremington Quay which is a delightful 10 minute walk away down a single track lane, running alongside the picturesque Muddlebridge Pill, a tidal creek and haven for birdlife. The Pill flows down to the Quay where the Tarka Trail ( part of the National Cycle Network) crosses. With the help of heritage funding, the Quay and surrounding area were restored about 15 years ago and now provide an idyllic spot to while away a spare hour or two, possibly taking in an adjacent woodland or trail walk, rounded off by a snack, light meal or cream tea, at the excellent Quay Cafe and Heritage Centre.
