Property Description

Set in 70 acres of beautiful pastures leading to the Coombe Valley. As the name suggests, Sanctuary Farm Cottages provides a wonderful sanctuary in which to relax and unwind. Converted to a very good standard, these barn conversions, built using authentic materials, retain plenty of character with vaulted ceilings, exposed stonework and oak wooden floors. The holiday cottages have been individually decorated to provide an ambience of peace and tranquillity. Woods Close (ref 17831) has its own private balcony and sitting out area boasting wonderful views. Guests are free to wander the woodlands and natural grounds or a 1½ mile walk through woodlands leads to the sandy beach at Duckpool. A profusion of cliff, beach and moorland paths for walkers to enjoy - why not start with the coastline’s Heritage Trail.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Returning to woods close after a previous holiday there 5 years ago it was great to see the good standard of the accommodation had been kept up. The friendly owners after showing us around left us alone, but we allways knew they were available if we were to need them. June 2012.
  2. Duckpool is the nearest beach, and it can be reached by walking, but it does take about 40 mins to walk, and if it has rained recently, some parts of the walk can get a little muddy. Duckpool is one of several beaches in the area that are completely covered at high tide, and so a tide timetable is recommended when you arrive, so you can judge when to visit the beaches. Aug 2011.
  3. Spacious, converted barn. Tastefully and comfortably decorated. All home comforts that you could possibly need. Tea and scones on arrival!! Beds clean and cosy, lots fresh towels. A real home from home. Owners most welcoming. 40 minute walk to fantastic beach through scenic countryside, a joy! Feb 2011.
  4. Wonderful views and so relaxing we had a lovely holiday. Aug 2010.
  5. The property is fantastic. Jan 2010.
  6. The owners were very helpful without being in your face during our stay. The accommodation was definitely as stated 5 star, will be going back next year. Nov 2009.
  7. Clean, spacious, well maintained, great location, a warm welcome & very helpful and friendly. Dec 2009.
  8. The surroundings it was set in were lovely and there was a nice outside area to sit and eat in. If we hadn’t had a 3 year old early riser it would have been perfect as it was spacious and well presented. However, because of the up-side down nature of the building (bedrooms on ground floor) and the open plan, it wasn’t very sound proof if you wanted a lie-in. Aug 2009.
  9. Beyond what we expected - very clean and fully equipped. The owner was very friendly although didn’t encrouch on our holiday. Aug 2009.
  10. The house is thoughtfully designed, particularly the marvelous kitchen and large living room, with space for sandy shoes and wet towels outside. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. Lovely peaceful setting - just the sound of tawny owls, buzzards and farm animals, with valley and coastal cliff walks close by. Aug 2008.
  11. Wonderful warm welcome. Beautifully presented and very comfortable accommodation. We have holidayed here several times and will keep coming back! March 2008.
  12. A beautiful home-from-home. Lovely secluded location within walking distance of a fantastic quiet sandy beach. We’ll definitely be back! July 2006.
  13. Well presented accommodation in a lovely location. April 2006.
  14. The accommodation was absolutely fantastic, the barn was beautiful and such a homely place. We had mince pies on arrival which we thought were very very nice. Overall a fantastic place to stay. Dec 2006.
