The Little House
About the home
Welcome to the Little House – self catering cottage. A great location in a peaceful North Devon valley. 3 miles from Braunton & Barnstaple and 15 mins drive to the golden, sandy beaches of North Devon: Croyde, Saunton Sands, Woolacombe and Putsborough. Exmoor is a 20 minute drive away. The Little House; which is part of our traditional Devon Long House built in 1680 was originally a huge, vast cellar with windows. We have transformed The Little House into a stylish open plan self catering cottage which is in the style of an open plan studio apartment on the ground floor. Full of charm and character with exposed stone walls, wooden floors and low beams (note: low ceilings). With views of our paddock and the woodland beyond. The Little House is a perfect rural get away for two people and “cosy” for four.
Please note we have no mobile signal at The Little House, WiFi is free
Use of indoor swimming pool on request (located 15 minute drive away)
Kids are welcome to roam the paddock and play in the stream (bring wellies) look out for Jingle our super friendly Labrador and Jack our reliable old horse and of course the chickens!
Grown ups; put your feet up, enjoy a glass of wine, listen to the stream trickle by and the owls hoot as night time falls.
