A rural delight nestled just 3 miles from golden sands and clifftop walks, this traditional pretty cottage is full of classic countryside charm. In the quiet village of Bradwell, Caraway is a romantic home-from-home, a place to relax and enjoy quality time together away from the hustle and bustle. On stepping foot into the property, its rustic beauty will whisk you straight into holiday mode.

Exposed beams and quirky ceilings add character, warmth and a homely feel. The sofas in the traditionally furnished living room are the perfect place to rest after a day spent exploring and roaming the beautiful local landscapes. Step outside to enjoy the property’s marvellous outdoor area where you can enjoy stunning views, al fresco meals and BBQ on long balmy summer evenings.

For surfing, sandy toes and sunbathing, the glorious sands of Woolacombe are only 3 miles away, where you’ll also find numerous bars and eateries. Tucked towards the end of the esplanade, discover the more secluded coves of Barricane and Combesgate: perfect for romantic evenings watching the sunset beyond rippling waves. For adventure across majestic clifftops or roaming the wild moors, venture onto the nearby South West Coast Path, or drive 12 miles and set yourself free amongst the natural beauty of Exmoor National Park. Brimming with fantastic food spots, 4 miles away in the working harbour town of Ilfracombe are galleries, shops and a museum, as well as Damien Hirst’s impressive bronze statue, “Verity”.
