Moored on a private lake surrounded by 35 acres of peaceful countryside on the border of Devon and Cornwall, this charming houseboat offers cosy quirky accommodation, wonderful tranquillity and the unique opportunity to experience life on the water and trout fishing on your doorstep!
If you’re looking for something completely different, for somewhere you can switch off and enjoy quiet surroundings, fresh air and the comings and goings of abundant wildlife, then the Clouded Yellow Houseboat is the perfect place. The boat itself is charming and characterful with everything you need for simple yet comfortable living, the setting on the water is magical and the many delights of the Devon and Cornwall coast and countryside are on your doorstep. You’d be hard pressed to find a more memorable holiday hideaway.
The local town of Holsworthy (2 miles away) has a butcher, a greengrocer, a chemist, a bakery and a couple of supermarkets, and every Wednesday there is a fantastic farmers’ market with an array of stalls. A 20 minute drive will take you to Dartmoor National Park, the North Devon/Cornwall coast, home to the resort of Bude, and the Tarka Trail, famous for its off-road walking and cycling opportunities. And on the lake itself you can try trout fishing free of charge. This is a place made for humble rural pursuits!
