Property code: 78435

Set in a stunning rural location yet only 5.5 miles to Barnstaple, this little hut is the ideal romantic hideaway for two. Stylish and contemporary with the perfect blend of rustic woods and soothing colours, this property gives you the opportunity to relax and unwind with your beau among beautiful surroundings. Wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day, heading out to the patio with your morning coffee to watch over the lake and fields beyond.

Whether you’ve got your feet up in front of the wood burner or you’re strolling the extensive grounds, you’ll find your happy place here. The interiors embrace your proximity to nature with earthy tones mixed with white, and charming farmhouse-style touches add a little bit of fun. Fold up your cosy bed to reveal the dining area, perfect for breakfasts spent planning your day’s activities, or dine alfresco on the patio to take in the wonderful views. Take your rods and tackle down to the lake for a peaceful morning fishing or arrange with the owner to practise your putting on the green.

Get your surf on at the beach in Croyde (17 miles) or Woolacombe (19 miles), both prime locations for amateur and experienced surfers, or stay slightly closer and visit Saunton Sands (14 miles). Grab your hiking boots and take the 6-mile circular walk from Swimbridge (1 mile) through Kerscott and Dennington Barton; it’s a steep climb out of the village but the views at the top are worth it! If a gentler walk is more up your street, wander at your own pace around Wistlandpound Reservoir (10 miles) where there are two main paths to take.

What a lovely experience! Every little thing has been thought of to make your stay comfortable a luxury hotel level of detail! We want to return in the summer so we can sit outside but even with February rain the hut provided us with joyous shelter.

We had a lovely time at the Burlands, its a beautiful place. The host Zena had thought of everything. If you want to eat at the pub, book before you go, they squeezed us in on the Friday but it does get very busy.
