This tastefully converted stone barn is ideally situated for those who like to get away from it all. Lying 2 miles from the rural village of Buckland Brewer, it is perfectly positioned to explore the rest of Devon. One of three properties in this idyllic, peaceful location, you are also within easy reach of the lively port town of Bideford (9 miles) and the rest of the beautiful North Devon coast.

This property offers distinctive and very comfortable accommodation, with homely furnishings set against exposed brickwork and beams, giving just a glimpse of the building's past life. You will love the cosiness of settling on the sofa to watch TV or a DVD. Couples can enjoy a quiet dinner at the dining table set for two, prepared in the bijou but well-equipped kitchen. Wander out to the patio area to sit and enjoy an early morning coffee, or perhaps a little stargazing in the evening with a glass of wine, thanks to the area’s unspoilt skies.

Keen walkers will enjoy the direct access to a public footpath and it may be possible to walk the owner’s land by prior permission and with any dogs kept on a lead. There is a pleasant walk into Buckland Brewer (2 miles) where you might like to take advantage of the popular pub and traditional butchers. The town of Bideford is just 9 miles away, offering a twice weekly market, shops, pubs and restaurants. A little further afield, the attractive harbour villages of Appledore (11 miles) and Clovelly (10 miles) which both ooze quaint charm, are steeped in history and have renowned restaurants and cheerful pubs.

We loved our stay at Ivy Cottage, and we wouldn't change a thing. On our arrival we were pleasantly surprised to see a lovely welcome pack of wine, scones, jam, milk, clotted cream and tea bags. The Cottage itself was beautifully presented, clean and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable! We also loved the rural location to have a Read morerelaxing weekend. Hide

Beautiful lodge, lovely people. Amazing location overlooking the Devonshire views. When we arrived we had been put in the cottage next door to the one we booked. Greeted by a welcome pack of cheese, wine and scones. We sadly had no hot water and heating for 24 hours was not ideal when I was 7 months pregnant and we had driven 5 hours and wanted a hRead moreot shower, however this was fixed swiftly the next day by the owners who were very sorry. We didnt let that ruin our holiday. We would return. Hide

A beautiful little cottage away from the world. Owners are lovely and were very accommodating throughout, and always happy to help with anything we needed. The views from the cottage are gorgeous and walks locally are so peaceful and quiet, but within 30 mins of many attractions/shops/hiking trails. We had such a lovely time, highly recommended!
