We had a fabulous 7 day break at Owls Oak Chalet. The owners were very welcoming and although we only occasionally saw them in the lovely grounds we knew that they were on hand if we ever needed anything. The weather was exceptionally hot (the hottest week of the year so far!), and they kindly provided us with a fan to help to keep us cool. The accRead moreommodation was very clean, and the location of the chalet was very peaceful. The alpacas and chickens made our stay even more special. Thank you. Hide

Super accommodation well furnished with everything you require (cooker, microwave, hairdryer, TV, BBQ etc). Milk, butter and bagels provided. Located so you can head north and south to explore Devon and into Cornwall. Some great local pubs serving good food, recommended by Richard and Nicola (the Owners), booking required. The highlight for us was Read moreseeing a Tawny owl and two fledglings right outside our window. Lovely bit of countryside with long views and friendly hosts. Hide

Very quiet and peaceful location and a car is a necessity but there are lovely locations and walks nearby. Llamas and horses on your doorstep just over the fence makes for a new experience.

We had a lovely stay here. The owners were very welcoming and the arrival pack with goodies and essentials was much appreciated. The location is very secluded and tranquil with beautiful views and plenty of room for our dog to run around. It's also a great base for exploring Dartmoor and around 40mins drive from the beach (Bude, Cornwall)

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
