After a walk along the South West Coast Path or in the surrounding countryside, snuggle up in one of The Collective at Woolsery's design-led rooms or suites, with super soft beds, sofas and soft furnishings. The Collective at Woolsery offers a collection of three cottages, two suites, and two rooms within the village, each showcasing its unique character. Carefully crafted by Hannah Lohan of New Heritage Designs, these accommodations pay homage to the history and heritage of the village, with nostalgia and decadence permeating every corner, creating an ultimate sanctuary to relax, unwind and embrace the art of slowing down. The interiors are adorned with beautiful artwork, while vintage pieces lend an air of authenticity to every room. The meticulously curated décor pays homage to the village's farming history, providing guests with an immersive experience that transports them to a bygone era of rural life.
Surrounded by open countryside and a stone's throw from the romantic and dramatic Hartland Peninsula coastline, The Collective at Woolsery is a peaceful haven where the stars shine bright and the darkness of night envelopes and cocoons. Guests can explore the nearby tracks, footpaths, and lanes, or take a short drive to the rugged South West Coast Path. With fires aplenty to warm chilly toes after any adventure, guests will be rewarded for braving the elements. Alternatively, stay in, kick back and truly relax and go nowhere with everything you need at your fingertips.
