Walking Holidays

Fantastic opportunities for a wonderful walking holiday in North Devon when you stay in Little Comfort Farm Self Catering Holiday Cottages! Whether you’re looking to explore our glorious coast and countryside yourselves or follow one of the many walks offered by bodies such as the National Trust, South West Coast Path, Exmoor National Park and AONB there really are unlimited possibilities for the walking visitor.

Explore the South West Coastal Path – Baggy Point & Morte Point with its breath-taking views; our world recognised Biosphere Reserve at Braunton Burrows and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For stunning scenery and abundant wildlife, as well as the famous ponies and wild red deer, Exmoor National Park is a short distance away. Or take a gentle stroll on the level Tarka Trail alongside the river estuary, where if you are lucky you will see otters and kingfishers along the way.

To help you plan your walks there are plenty of walking guides and maps available in the Farm Office where our friendly team will be available to share their knowledge of the local area and some of their favourite walking destinations with you. Start your walks from Little Comfort Farm for the ultimate car free holiday or if you don’t want to do circular walks you can book a shuttle service with one of our local transport providers who will drop you off at the beginning of your walk and pick you up at the end.

And sometimes a walk just isn’t a walk without a four legged friend – dogs are always very welcome at Little Comfort Farm so remember pets are invited too!

After a day’s outdoor activity there’s nothing better than relaxing in one of our comfortable, cosy cottages for a good night’s rest. Delicious home produce & succulent meat is available from the farmhouse. No need to cook, ready-made meals are a great favourite with our visitors, made using our own delicious meat and local vegetables; these provide a real taste of home cooking without all the work.
