The Devon region

Much of the North Devon coast and countryside has been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The area is famous for its high quality, clean, safe beaches with many having RNLI lifeguard patrols during the summer months. This region of Devon is recognised as a haven for surfers and boasts some of the best surf in Europe.

The diversity of landscapes including moors, dunes, mud flats and cliff are home to a host of wildlife with opportunities to see a variety of birdlife as well as seals, dolphins, red deer and the famous Exmoor ponies.

There is an extensive range of sport and leisure activities: walking, cycling, surfing, golf, bird watching, horse riding, water sports and fishing.

The area is ideal for family holidays with loads to do for the kids no matter what the weather. Adults will enjoy experiencing the art, heritage and culture of North Devon.

Georgeham

This area is called the Golden Coast due to its beautiful sandy beaches and UNESCO designated biosphere dunes at Braunton Burrows.

Georgeham is a quiet, picturesque village where Henry Williamson lived and wrote Tarka the Otter. It is central to the beaches at Croyde, Saunton, Putsborough and Woolacome, which was voted 7th best British beach destination in the 2011 TripAdvisor Travelers' choice survey. It is also conveniently situated for tourist attractions such as the village of Clovelly, Lynton and Lynmouth, National Trust and RHS properties, Atlantic Village outlet centre, The Big Sheep and the Milky Way.

The National Cycle Route 27, which soon becomes the Tarka Trail, runs through the village and the South West Coastal Path passes close by. Nearby is bustling Croyde with its surfing beach and lively nightlife.

“Home from home.”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2015

Coming from Pembrokeshire we weren't disappointed with the lovely scenery and beaches. Surf hire is readily available and I'd advise everyone to have a go! The "upside down" Old Stores was extremely comfortable and every detail had been attended to. The spare bedroom to escape the snoring husband was an added bonus! The food at the Rock Inn was exceptional as was the curry on the beach at the Beach Café. Putsborough & Croyde are well worth a visit. Georgham is very central to local beaches with Braunton nearby for shopping. Highly recommended.

“Very high standard, has many personal touches”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2015

The cottage is a lovely building, renovated to a really really high standard. The owners have thought of everything and have left so many thoughtful touches behind that there is nothing else you could possibly want (eg. a little bottle of milk in the fridge so you can have a cup of tea when you get there). To be honest, the village (and consequently the road the cottage is on) was busier than I expected but that is what you get in Devon during the summer holidays and it is the same everywhere.

“Just what we wanted; will definitely return”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2013

Myself and 2 friends rented The Old Stores for a surf trip. This is the second time I have stayed here and will definitely return. The location is perfect; within a dry short drive of 3 beaches. The cottage is lovely; modern yet retains it's charm. 2 pubs within stumbling distance is an added bonus.

“Great location and good pubs”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2013

Good location within easy reach of Putsborough Beach. Two good pubs nearby, the Rock being very near by - one house away! Cottage was unusual in so much as downstairs was up, and bedrooms were down. The twin bedroom had a damp smell which was about the only disappointment. Beds comfy and fixtures and fittings were all satisfactory, and everything worked, which is always good. Good selection of books and games for non-electronic fun, my kids discovered Scrabble, and fights over definitions ensued! We certainly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend this cottage, its a lovely village and would come back again.

Thank you for your review. We take feedback very seriously and therefore have taken some practical measures to address your comments.

“Absolutely Perfect”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2013

Can't say enough. Perfect location. Next door to a pub, short walk to another. Lovely village. Beaches a short drive. The house is lovely, very cleverly set up. It made for relaxing evenings once the kids went to bed.

“A charming cottage in an ideal location”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2011

Full of character this inverted two storey home is a delight to stay in. Having bedrooms below the living accommodation works well, allowing for better views from above. The owners are to be congratulated on fitting out and restoring a delightful old village cottage which has lots of history.
