2½ miles from Bradworthy in a sleepy hamlet, deep in rolling farmland, a very smart, detached, single-storey cottage converted from an old piggery to the main farmhouse. Now a smallholding with a few sheep and chickens. The large enclosed garden is to one side (accessed from the front door of the cottage), mostly lawned, with a sheltered patio (table/chairs, barbecue) catching the morning and late afternoon sun; beyond, wooded farmland and lots of footpaths.

 

Entrance porch (for coats/boots/drying dogs) into fitted kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer) with slate floor and a half-wall and step down to living/dining room with beautiful oak floor, vaulted ceiling, woodburner, TV/DVD, iPod dock and glazed doors (low lintel) to driveway. Two bedrooms – a double (5' bed), and a twin (linkable to 6' double), both with lovely rural views. Excellent bathroom (suite with roll-top bath and separate shower) with porcelain floor. A great combination of modern comfort and rural serenity.

The West Country region

North Devon: its coast is perhaps the most varied of all, from Hartland Quay with its tremendous cliffs and multi-coloured rocks like dinosaurs' backs, via car-free Clovelly village tumbling to the sea, and the estuaries of the river Torridge (where Tarka lived) and river Taw, and Braunton's wilderness of sand dunes (all good for birdwatching), to the best sand/surf beaches in Devon at Saunton (the West Country's best golf course too), Croyde and Woolacombe, all the way to Exmoor.

The main town is Barnstaple - busy, thriving, not too big. The Tarka Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows, very attractively, the river Torridge from deep inland to the sea and on past Instow's good beach and lovely cricket ground to Bideford, from where Elizabethan merchantmen sailed. From Hartland Point's lighthouse, great views to Lundy Island - and from Ilfracombe ships (day trips) to it. In Appledore unusual ships are built and its heart is very pretty. Inland, woods and fields roll, sometimes steeply, with streams, rivers and farms, almost totally unspoilt - as is most of the coast. Its north-west, stretching from Hatherleigh to Hartland, is Devon's least changed, least visited, least inhabited part, a country of big fields, some forests, gently undulating, with long, long views beneath big skies where old men in their vegetable gardens look up as a car passes. Holsworthy is the main (very small) town, with square, market, firm purpose. The river Tamar rises in the Tamar Lakes (watersports, fishing). The roads are straighter and less high-hedged than most in Devon - and emptier.

Holsworthy

Bradworthy: ancient village (church, pub, tea room, shops) in Devon's least changed farmland, 4 miles from a main road, close to Cornwall. The Tamar Lakes (fishing, sailing, windsurfing), 3 miles; good sandy beach at Sandymouth, 8 miles. More tremendous beaches at Bude, 11 miles; Clovelly, 11 miles; Hartland's great cliffs, 12.
