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.

Come and escape to the countryside.......................

"Fabulous house, fabulous hosts in fabulous North Devon!"

The Little House is just perfect for a family retreat. It accommodates 2 adults & 2 children comfortably and offers everything you need, from kitchen equipment to outdoor drying space. The location in Whitehall is peaceful and calm, but within easy reach of all the best North Devon beaches and all the other tourist attractions.

Jo & Jerry are fantastic hosts & we can't rate the Little House highly enough!

We will be back!
