Bradford Mill B&B offers an ultimately private experience, with accommodation in a single guest bedroom, quietly set in a self-contained annexe. The property as a whole is a traditional 16th century Devon Longhouse, set in magnificent gardens: views from the guest room are of the herbaceous garden, an ancient oak tree and the quiet waters of the Little Dart River.

The Guest Bedroom is bedroom is light and airy, with a king-sized bed fitted with high-count cotton Designers Guild linen, topped by Helen Moore faux fur throws. Guests have their own private bathroom, with Designers Guild towels, complimentary artisan soaps by Moon Cat Soap and toiletries including green, paraben-free shampoo, shower gel and conditioner.

New guests are greeted with a Devon cream tea made with Naomi’s prize-winning blackcurrant or quince jelly, or a glass of sherry.

The three-acre grounds are we welcoming environment. The Little Dart runs along the front of the property, with a footbridge leading to a pond that’s home to a family of pet Muscovy ducks and a pair of moorhens. Beyond that is a river walk and two acres of paddock with further stream frontage. A short stroll up the lane gives access onto the beautiful Two Moors Way, providing idyllic walks abundant with wild flowers: lesser-spotted orchid, ragged robin, yellow rattle and viper’s bugloss can all be found. Two miles in one direction reaches the village of Witheridge, while the other direction leads all the way to Lynmouth on the coast.

For breakfast, there’s Naomi’s home-made bread and marmalade, scrambled eggs from Bradford Mill’s own free-range hens, and smoked salmon. Dinner is available by separate arrangement. There is a small fridge in the annexe.

This part of mid-to-north Devon is a very special part of the country. It’s deeply rural, unspoilt and underpopulated, and Bradford Mill is the perfect place to stay and explore.

Location

Bradford Mill is around two mile from Witheridge, very much a rural village embodying the best of the slow-paced Devon life. The rather continental-looking square features a newsagent’s shop, a post office, a church, a pub, and the whimsical Two Moors Cafe-Gallery, which offers teas, lunches and local art. The market town of South Molton, gateway to Exmoor, lies about 9 miles to the north: Thursdays and Saturdays are its special days with a pannier market which supplies the best of North Devon's organic and free-range produce, as well as baskets, jewellery, perfumes, herbs and more. Exmoor is only 15 minutes away. The rugged north Devon coastline - Hartland and beyond – is about an hour’s drive. Despite its other-world feel, communications here are close and efficient, with the A361 just four miles away, linking into the M5 from one direction and the Atlantic Highway from the other.
