Property code: 85818

This barn has been lovingly refurbished and offers a superb bolthole for couples, with its own enclosed garden, and it’s just 5 miles from the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Escape to the countryside in this idyllic retreat, just outside the quaint Devon village of Buckland Brewer. The property is perfectly placed to explore North Devon’s stunning beaches, such as Westward Ho! (6.5 miles) and Instow (9 miles), as well as the beautiful wilderness of Exmoor National Park (just under 30 miles). After a long walk, return to your cosy bolthole to relax in the open-plan living space, dine alfresco on the peaceful patio or wander down to the 13th-century thatched inn for a sundowner.

The pretty stone barn conversion has a reverse-level layout, with a light and airy ground-floor king-size bedroom. On the first floor, you’ll find a fabulous open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which is full of character, thanks to an impressive vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. Unwind here at the end of a busy day to catch up with your favourite programme on the Smart TV. The cottage has two delightful outdoor areas: a sheltered and enclosed patio with garden furniture, firepit, charcoal bbq and a further patio area where you can relax and admire the views over the surrounding countryside.

Nearby, the small village of Instow is packed with quintessential seaside charm. Wander along its sandy shores, before enjoying a homemade cake in the friendly cafe or a drink in one of the traditional village pubs. The traffic-free Tarka Trail runs through the village, and you can follow it along the river for 6 miles to the bustling market town of Barnstaple. A must for the itinerary is the unique fishing village of Clovelly (9 miles). Clinging to the hillside, this picturesque village has a steep cobbled high street lined with white-washed cottages adorned with flowers, leading down to a picture-postcard harbour where you can sit for hours watching the fishing boats and marvelling at the rugged scenery.

Perfect little upside down cottage on the edge of a welcoming village. We stayed with our dogs and they were very safe; the area outside was well secured with gate and fence. And there were some nice little dog walks routes. The cottage had everything and more that you could need. I brought lots of things I didn't need.

Thoroughly enjoyable week at Swallow Cottage. Lyn & Peter very friendly but not at all intrusive. Very clean, well equipped & super comfy bed. Peaceful location with great countryside views. It was great to relax in the enclosed garden knowing our dog was secure. We visited lovely Clovelly, Hartland Abbey & walked on Exmoor. If you like a traditionRead moreal pub, the Coach & Horses is a must, Ollie the landlord made us feel very welcome and the food was good too. Would stay here again. Loved it. Hide

Swallow Cottage is a gem in North Devon. The cottage has all the things needed and more to make your stay enjoyable. Lyn & Peter are so helpful and provide service over and above what you normally receive. The location is lovely, nestled in a small village , but close to main routes for ease of access to both Cornwall, and the Devon coast. Ten minuRead moretes or so to the stunning village of Clovelly is a must. Olly the local publican of village pub is a must....food was great too. Hide

All first class, very comfortable and peaceful. Owners were at hand if you required anything. Important factor for us is that the courtyard was very safe for our four legged companion. Easy access to various amenities and a pub within easy walking distance which provided excellent food. What more can one ask for. 100% recommend
