The Devon region

The North Devon area is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Towns and villages like Clovelly, Lynton and Lynmouth nestle snugly amongst the rugged cliffs of the imposing Atlantic coast. Exmoor has beautiful and breathtaking scenery, prehistoric sites, old churches and interesting wildlife. You will have plenty of opportunity to enjoy wonderful walks, including the beautiful South West Coast Path, paint or take photographs. This area also has some of the finest surfing beaches including Croyde and Saunton Sands where you can relax soaking up the sun or partake in water sports.

For a truly memorable experience get the M.S.Oldenburge (from Bideford or Ilfracombe depending on the tides) to Lundy Island, a three mile long island, 12 miles off the North Devon coast. A paradise for wildlife watchers it also has a marine reserve which you can dive off.

Bentwitchen Cottage provides a base for all these activities, as well as opportunities to ride, to play golf at the famous Saunton Sands Golf Course or to visit a number of outstanding gardens such as those at Marwood and RHS Rosemoor. It is within easy reach of Tarr Steps, The Chains - a wonderful place for the experienced walker, the Tarka Trail, Woody Bay and the Valley of the Rocks.


South Molton, the nearest town, is 6 miles away and has a local market on Thursday and a farmers’ market on Saturday. Barnstaple, North Devon’s main market town, with its famous Pannier Market and Butchers’ Row – excellent for both meat and locally caught fish, is within easy reach and offers a range of shopping facilities and other activities. The Poltimore Arms, possibly one of Exmoor’s most delightful pubs, is just up the road and is definitely Bentwtichen’s “local”.

Review 1-6 of 6

"An exquisite place to stay!"

This has got to be one of our best holiday cottage finds to date! The house was spacious, comfortable and catered for all our needs! We really didn't want to go home. It is set amongst the beautiful Devonshire countryside and great for walks or just relaxing on the scenic patio. There is an abundance on wildlife on your doorstep. For family days out, the fantastic beaches are all close to hand which made for great days out but it was lovely to come back and relax in this superb house. With a family of teenagers it was also great that we all had our own space if needed, the en-suites to each room is a great idea! We would recommend this property to anyone and the owners are lovely!
