Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Brayford

An ancient rural parish, Brayford, on the fringes of Exmoor, lies amidst the greenery of North Devon. Just shy of the Atlantic coast, Brayford is in a lovely situation for a family holiday combining moorland and beach. Brayford offers some delightful holiday cottages for families and friends looking to retreat to the hills for a holiday amidst some truly beautiful and wild countryside.

Walk the dogs through Brayford's woods or barefoot paddle in the meandering River Bray as it chuckles its way down from Exmoor. A few miles outside the village as you head up onto Exmoor is The Poltimore Arms, the last pub in England still not connected to the National Grid - which hasn't stopped its charismatic landlord from serving up some wonderful local real ales and no-nonsense pub food in a bar unchanged for decades. Although surrounded by deep green Devon countryside, awash with wildflowers in the spring and early summer, Brayford lies within easy reach of the South West Coast Path and North Devon's lovely beaches at Woolacombe, Saunton, Combe Martin and Ilfracombe.

Beyond this character village, the towns of Barnstaple and South Molton, as well as the Victorian seaside resort of Ilfracombe, are easily accessible. Visit the award-winning coast and spend the day lounging on Saunton Sands or surfing hotspot Croyde. Walk along the edges of the waves from Putsborough to Woolacombe, or enjoy the stunning views from Baggy Point towards Lundy Island - a day trip from Ilfracombe. You can’t spend time in North Devon without a trip to the highly recommended coast. But, of course, further inland, it is equally as lovely. Take the worthwhile drive from your holiday cottage to the moors and experience Exmoor.
