Blagdon Farm is the perfect place from which to explore Devon and Cornwall and you'll be sure of a very warm welcome. Set in the heart of Ruby country (so called after the Ruby Red cattle farmed locally), Blagdon Farm is within an easy drive of the wide sandy North Cornwall beaches at Bude and Widemouth Bay, the stunning Cornish resorts of Boscastle and Padstow (home to Rick Stein's famous seafood restaurant), and the spectacular scenery of Dartmoor and Exmoor. The ancient port of Clovelly and historic Tintagel Castle are close by and the attractions of the Eden Project, the Tate St. Ives, and RHS Rosemoor Gardens are all within easy reach.
The bright lights of Launceston, with its ancient castle, steam railway and bustling shopping centre, is just 10 miles away. Here you will find Tescos, a retail park and many local shops. The pretty market town of Holsworthy is just 5 miles away where you will find crafts, excellent local produce and there is a market every Wednesday.
Established in the late 1990s, the accommodation at Blagdon Farm, previously rated at 4 and 5 stars with an Accessibility rating of M3A, was a South West Excellence Award Winner in 2007.More
Stayed again in Curlew. This is our 4th time there and I'm so sorry to say there has been a deterioration in standards since the new owners have taken over. Rubbish and mess is piling up. The swimming pool water looked a bit mucky although...More
Spotlessly clean and comfortable cottage. Lovely view to look at when sitting outside.
So good to be able to go swimming on a hot day.
Hosts could not have been more accommodating. Selection of beer on sale in Dippers bar excellent.

The lodge is located in rural Devon and is the perfect place to have a peaceful and restful holiday. The nearest train station is Okehampton (about 17 miles to the South East) and buses do run to Holsworthy and Launceston, but essentially, you will need a car to get about, although there are local taxis and car hire companies - both are reasonably priced. Most supermarkets are happy to deliver to our lodges, some guests order their food to arrive on the day they arrive and we are happy to supervise delivery as long as we are aware in advance and it comes after Midday.
