Overlooking 60 acres of pretty rural grounds, the cottage has an all-year-round hot tub, perfect for admiring the sunset. For a gathering of family and friends, there's no finer place to enjoy a taste of luxury. 

Furlong Cottage has four bedrooms, three of which have en-suite bathrooms. The bright open-plan living space was designed so that families can enjoy quality time together, without feeling cramped. When you arrive at the cottage, enjoy a complimentary Devonshire cream tea and settle in on the big comfy sofas. During your downtime in the evenings or on a rainy day, gather round to watch a film on the 50-inch TV and snuggle in front of the authentic wood-burning stove. In the winter, Furlong Cottage gets super cosy with under-floor heating.

Outside, the garden is one of the cottage's best features. Fire up the barbecue on a warm summer's day and chill out on the sun loungers. If you're eager to get to the beach, Westward Ho!'s golden sands are just a three-minute drive away, or a 20-minute walk along the South West Coast Path. Families will love Westward Ho!, with its pretty tearooms and long stretch of sand, perfect for building grand sandcastles and exploring rock pools. Jump in the sea with a bodyboard to catch some waves. If there are any budding surfers in the family, the local surf school offers classes, as well as board and wetsuit hire.

When it comes to dining out, Westward Ho! has something for everyone. From authentic Italian and Moroccan cuisine to classic British fare and seafood, you'll be spoiled for choice. If you'd rather cook a meal at Furlong Cottage, there are many places to pick up delicious, fresh produce. If you're wiped out after a busy day at the beach, don't worry. We can send our executive chef and his team over to the cottage to cook a delicious menu, just for you.

Duckhaven Stud is the perfect setting for a family break. Say hello to our resident race horses and friendly farm animals during your stay. If you want to bring your beloved horse on holiday, there's plenty of space for them at Furlong Cottage's private paddock. For extra activities moments from Furlong Cottage, check out our play barn. We have facilities for table tennis, pool, table football and basketball, as well as a glorious small heated indoor plunge pool.

Furlong Cottage has private off-road parking for three cars and a bike rack, so you won't be stuck for space. It also has a wet room, making the cottage suitable for multi-generations. If you need anything at all during your stay or want to add a few little extras to your holiday, just let our friendly team know.
