Description

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 20-30 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 quirky open plan self catering cottage which is in the style of an open plan studio apartment on the ground floor. NOTE v low ceilings. Full of charm and character with exposed stone walls, wooden floors and low beams (note: very low ceilings). The Little House looks out to our paddock and the woodland beyond. The Little House is a perfect rural get away for two people and a dog. We welcome families, bear in mind the Little House is open plan and the sofa bed is suitable for 2 children, not 2 adults. Please note we have no mobile

“Good location to see the area!”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2016

We recently stayed at The Little House, Marwood for a long weekend, When we first arrived we did think it was a little rural and remote! Although it could be said it is quite and peaceful, but within a 15 minute drive we found ourselves near a beautiful coastline. The owners have compiled a very good folder with a great directions to the best places to visit in the area. We had a great stay and there are some wonderful places to discover in and around The Little House.

“excellent”

“Fabulous house, fabulous hosts in fabulous North Devon!”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2013

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!
