“Hartland is still an almost unknown country, although its scenery is more beautiful and its history more interesting than any other place in North Devon” Pearse Chope (1934) Farthest From Railways: An Unknown Corner of Devon
Hartland is an attractive village with a Post Office, a general store, a medical centre with its own dispensary, plus pubs, cafes, potteries and art studios.
The village also benefits from a highly active community with regular classes in art, yoga and dance, a town band and WI. Hartland is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by woodland and rolling countryside under two miles from the breathtaking coastal scenery of north-west Devon.
Despite its rural setting, the village is well connected to the surrounding area with buses to several towns (Bude, 14 miles, Bideford, 13.7 miles and Barnstaple, 22.6 miles) and a volunteer transport service of particular usefulness to elders who no longer drive.
The cohousing site itself is located on the edge of the village within walking distance of the village square.
