The West Country region

Close to Exmoor National Park with the Valley of the Rocks and Lynmouth a must visit. Nearby Barnstaple, Bideford and South Moulton with their Pannier Markets, shops and bistros/restaurants. Braunton itself has a good selection of cafes, bistros and restaurants or pubs within a few minutes' walk or drive to one of the nearby villages such as Croyde or Georgeham and try The Thatch, The Rock or The Kings Arms, all of which have an excellent reputation for food and live music.


Only 5 minutes from Saunton Sands, 10 minutes from Croyde Beach and 15 minutes from Woolacombe beach. The Tarka Trail passes right through the village with miles and miles of flat cycling or walking pathways with plenty of tea/coffee stops! Whether you are a surfer, kite boarder, wind surfer, paraglider, walker, cyclist or golfer there is something for everyone close by.

"Clean, modern, bright, homely"

We had a fantastic few days away staying at Penny Cottage. Excellent location for bodyboarding at Croyde Beach. We loved the added touch of homemade lemon drizzle cake, went very well with a cup of tea. Cannot wait to visit again.

"Cozy and cute cottage"

Penny Cottage is lovely, clean and beautifully furnished but still retains some character.
The village is a stone's throw away and has a fantastic selection of shops with a proper village feel there is also a pub an easy walk in each direction of the cottage and is a short drive away from the beautiful beach of Saunton. Penny Cottage is a great base to explore the local area. The home owner was excellent with communication when booking. I would highly recommend.
