Delightful typical Devon fishermans cottage in quiet village of Bucks Mills, North Devon on edge of Bideford Bay. Few minutes walk to beach from cottage along no-through road. Cottage is listed and is well equipped for a super holiday but still has some original details. The village is in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and is a 'Conservation Area'.

Own garden and parking in 'pull in' in no-through road outside cottage - day visitors to village are asked to park on edge of village and walk in but if you are staying in village you can drive in and park.

Many walks from cottage and North Devon Coast Path crosses village and leads to Clovelly in one direction and through the woods and fields to Peppercombe in the other direction.

Totally unspoilt with many wild flowers, butterflies and wildlife. Ideal for families with childrens or anyone who wants a relaxing holiday. Bucks Mills is in a beautiful valley leading down to the beach, our cottage is one of the oldest dwellings in the village and is located on the sunny side of the valley.

To let for holidays and short breaks out of season and at short notice from £79 per night including heating and electricity - this price is for cottage not per person! ( min. 2 nights). Sleeps four + cot.

We're sorry but mobile phone reception is very poor at times (we think this is a bonus), there is a public phone box in the village.

There is a travel cot and high chair in the cottage.
