When we created Westward Living, we wanted to design luxury cottages with a taste of North Devon's rural lifestyle.
As well as relaxing in your beautiful luxury cottage, there's so much to see and do at our 60-acre farm. You'll be spoiled for choice! We've taken every step to make sure Duckhaven Stud is the perfect place for families, couples and groups, filled with fun and luxurious treats.
We understand that sometimes you just want to sink into your cottage and unwind. For families with energetic little ones in tow, our play barn and play area are perfect! Both are just a short stroll from the cottages and keep the kids entertained come rain or shine. While they're exploring the play areas, grown-ups can kick back in their luxury home from home. Of course, adults are more than welcome to join in the fun in the play areas!
To make your stay with us even more special, we've created a few luxury extras. For couples, a luxury break in North Devon means taking in the sunset views, sinking into the hot tub and indulging in delicious, romantic meals. Our exclusive private dining service is a popular choice among couples staying here at Duckhaven Stud. For the ultimate in relaxation, we also offer bespoke pampering services.
In the spring and summer, our small indoor plunge pool is a particularly welcome treat for anyone who has spent their day walking the South West Coast Path (open between April and September).
North Devon's stretch of the coast path is truly beautiful and we have private access at Duckhaven Stud. Our cheerful family Labrador, Raffles, is always keen for a wander along the coast path! If you'd like to walk Raffles, he's a lovable pet who knows his way around the area, so you won't get lost on your way back.
Here at the farm, we're passionate about rural life in North Devon, so we love sharing this with our guests. Say hello to our friendly farmyard animals during your stay! As Duckhaven Stud is a former thoroughbred racing yard, it's still home to many of our magnificent horses. They can be a little shy at first, but be patient and they'll pop over to say hello. If you'd like a personal tour of the horses during your stay, just let us know. We'd be happy to introduce you to the residents!
One of our most impressive facilities is of course our award-winning wedding venue, Ocean Kave. Overlooking the Atlantic, this super romantic venue is perfect for your big day. The Sunset Rooms are also available for family celebrations and events, with unbeatable coastal and countryside views.
So, whether you're planning your big day with us, looking for a rural family break or the ultimate romantic getaway, we've got you covered.Click here to check availabiilty & book
