Location description from owner

The England region

Devon is one of the most magnificent, unspoilt coastlines in England. The award winning surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, Westward Ho make perfect days out for all the family (including the dog). There's a great choice of public coastal footpaths and cycle paths to explore and enjoy the countryside.

Barnstaple

The cottage is just a few minutes; drive from Barnstaple, the bustling town full of local shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars. If you fancy a walk to the pub in the evening for a drink or food, less than a mile away you will find the the friendly local in Bishops Tawton.For keen golfers, there are many to chose from but the closest course being Portmore Golf Course, located less than a mile away. Instow beach is just a 15 minute drive away, while the great surfing beaches of Saunton Sands, the award-winning beach of Woolacombe and Croyde can be reached in a short drive.

“Beautiful, well-equipped cottage in ideal situation”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2015

We came back for a second holiday in this lovely cottage as it offers everything that you need for a very comfortable break in a lovely part of the country. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished and extremely well-equipped. The garden is gorgeous and we love the cottage so much that, after a day's walking or other activity, we just didn't want to go out in the evening. We would all recommend it without reservation

“Beautifully appointed, conveniently located period holiday cottage.”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

Extremely comfortable and convenient base for our great niece's wedding. We booked from Australia an received excellent and prompt service from Jilly. We could not have had a better base for our week in Barnstaple. We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely period cottage which has easy access to the town, coast, Dartmoor and Exmoor.

“True to description”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2015

Beautiful picturesque cottage with lovely relaxed decor throughout. Heaps of authenticity but with modern kitchen making it an ideal stop for a group or small family. Nice and quiet and easy driving distance to most amenities. Comfortable beds and nice pillows.

“Fantastic well equipped cottage in a great location to be enjoyed by all age groups”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2014

This is a fantastic, very comfortable and well equipped cottage in a superb location. The owners did everything to make our family stay including our dog most enjoyable. It is finished to a very high standard and has a beautiful enclosed garden where we enjoyed several meals al fresco. The Tarka trail and visits to surrounding beaches were all very accessible. Booking thoroughly recommended.

“Peaceful Holiday Retreat”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2014

Spacious property, great location and fully equipped with everything for an enjoyable stay. We were a group of 5 adults and 2 children but, the house was plenty big enough still to have your own space. The garden was fully enclosed ensuring our two dogs were safe.
