Loveland farm sits in a small valley just a mile from the coast and in an area of outstanding natural beauty just outside the village of Hartland. Just a few miles off the A39 Atlantic Highway, the village sits directly between Barnstaple and Bude on the Devon and Cornwall border. Hartland is a popular tourist spot with visitors coming through to see Hartland Quay, the Abbey and the lighthouse at Hartland point.
Just a few miles down the road is the picture postcard village of Clovelly, an old naval village known for still using donkeys as the village’s main form of transport. Further up, are the towns of Bideford and Barnstaple, between which runs the Tarka trail, a 30 mile path/cycleway that follows the old coastal railway lines. Then there are the beaches, and we really are spoilt for choice, Woolacombe which was voted Britain’s Best Beach, then there is Croyde Bay and Braunton both popular amongst surfers and then there is our favourite, Welcombe a sandy beach outlined with dramatic deep slate rocks.
