Description from owner
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

Put your feet up, enjoy a glass of wine, listen to the stream trickle by and the owls hoot as night time falls. Come and escape to the countryside.......................
The Little House is ideal for less able bodied people, as all on one level, no stairs or steps.
Note: We are a busy, friendly family of 4 and part of our long Long House is above the Little House. We have 2 kids who do run about so you will hear the odd noise from above. Having said that it is very peaceful here.

“Good location to see the area!”
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.
The little house was perfect for our holiday gave us everything we could ask for very clean and tidy, great location, welcoming hosts, peaceful, we were also lucky enough to have lovely weather all week just wish I had booked for longer, would definitely like to go back as the title says excellent jo and jerry have a lovely home here that they share with us very lucky holiday makers
“Fabulous house, fabulous hosts in fabulous North Devon!”
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!
