Set at our 60-acre farm, Duckhaven Stud, Frankies Cottage is surrounded by peaceful countryside. The cottage sleeps six plus infants and is beautifully spacious. As you settle into the cottage, enjoy a complimentary Devonshire cream tea and sink into the comfy leather sofas. Bedrooms can be set up as twin rooms or with super king-size double beds, depending on your requirements. Each luxurious bed has a plush topper and is lined with Egyptian cotton bedding.

Frankies Cottage has a bright, open-plan design, with the living room, kitchen and diner perfectly designed for groups. Open the French doors to the patio and garden area, complete with a private family hot tub and glorious views over the rolling hills of Duckhaven Stud. On a hot summer's day, there's no finer place to enjoy some quality time with family and friends.

No trip to North Devon would be complete without a visit to Westward Ho!'s magnificent beach. You can reach the village via a 20-minute stroll on the South West Coast Path, or a three-minute drive. With two miles of sand and opportunities for swimming, surfing, bodyboarding and rock pooling, families never tire of this glorious North Devon hotspot. For dinner, check out the village's many eateries. Opt for Italian, Moroccan, Thai or traditional British fare, or tuck into a tasty portion of fish and chips by the sea. If the thought of cooking back at your cottage doesn't appeal after a busy day out, don't worry. Take advantage of our exclusive private dining service. Enjoy a beautifully cooked menu from the comfort of Frankies Cottage, served by our executive chef and his team.

Duckhaven Stud is a magical place for families. With our beloved race horses roaming through the fields and our friendly farm animals regularly making an appearance, we're sure the kids will love exploring rural life. Frankies Cottage is in fact named after our favourite jockey, Frankie Dettori, who won the Chester Cup on Star Player and the Brighton Mile on Silca Blanka. For extra activities near the cottage, our play barn has table football, pool, table tennis and a small heated indoor plunge pool. 

If you need anything during your stay or would like to add any little extras to your holiday, just let our friendly team know, we would be more than happy to help.
