|Berry Park, Victorian apartments and cottages
in a stunning location
June is a fantastic month to be on the Hartland Peninsula: beautiful weather, wonderful walks, lots of spring flowers still around (the thrift and white campion on the coastline are absolutely beautiful) and calm seas with a strong likelihood of spotting marine life like seals and dolphins (and even basking sharks near Lundy Island). And because it’s still outside the school holidays there are some excellent – or should I say eggcellent – offers to be had.
Berry Park, for example, is offering great deals on short breaks and fortnight stays. Prices vary by the accommodation and length of stay chosen but, just as an example, up to 9 people can stay for 6 nights in Primrose Cottage for just £360 in total! Or, if you want to treat yourself to two, glorious weeks of walking, unwinding, relaxing on the beach, vising the beautiful places to see or just enjoying the breathtaking scenery then you can book a fortnight’s stay and the first week is half price. All the apartments and cottages in this lovely Victorian house are fully equipped for self-catering, but in addition there is an onsite licensed restaurant serving an excellent range of dishes skillfully prepared using home grown and local produce.
|The view from the patio at Cheristow Farm Cottages,
exceptional farm self-catering for couples, families and groups
Hartland has long been renowned for its wonderful relaxing properties – 80 years ago it was billed as the place to go to escape the hurly burly of modern life with the claim, "Hartland, furthest from the railways". And now Cheristow Farm Cottages are making it even easier to relax. Book a stay in one of their idyllic, beautifully converted farm cottages during June and for just £35 you can enjoy an hour’s hot stone massage treatment in their private treatment room by a fully qualified therapist.
|Southdown Cottage B&B, perfectly situated
between Clovelly & Hartland
There are plenty of other offers to choose from but one eggtra special deal that must be mentioned is from Southdown Cottage B&B. Situated between Hartland and Clovelly there are lots of reasons to stay here: it’s a lovely 17th Century cottage perfectly placed for the coastpath and they offer lots of services for walkers including coast path pick-ups and drop offs between Barnstaple and Bude, and packed lunches. The great breakfasts, using much of their own and very locally sourced produce, will set you raring to go, pets are welcome, so your dog can go on holiday too and if all this wasn’t enough then all guests staying in June will get to take away a dozen of their very own free-range eggs! What a perfect way to take a little bit of your holiday home with you!
