Property code: 91612

Blending cottage charm and contemporary elegance, an easy sentiment flows throughout this home. This property is ideal for couples or solo travellers and their furry companion exploring the historic village of Bishops Tawton. Stroll the cobbled streets of Barnstaple (3 miles) then refuel with freshly baked scones and breakfast tea, before sipping a sparkling aperitif from the open-air jacuzzi.

This quaint, thatched-roof cottage conceals a surprisingly chic interior with upholstered furniture, a crisp neutral colour scheme, whitewashed beams, and tasteful antique pieces. After a day of exploring, ease off shoes in the entranceway then pour a drink and potter in the bright shaker kitchen. Stock up the cupboards with some locally sourced snacks then cook up a simple summer spread. Recline at the intimate dining table and raise a toast to your special occasion before tucking into your evening meal. On warmer days, prop open the patio doors and feast with a gentle summer breeze. Rustle up dessert then retire to the inviting lounge and sink onto the opulent button-detailed seating to browse the Smart TV. When night falls, ascend the staircase to the tranquil king bedroom, complete with plump throw pillows and a sleek en-suite shower room. Outside, perch on the bistro set with a coffee on the Mediterranean-style patio or step up to indulge in an evening soak beneath the stars.

North Devon is a haven for thrill-seekers, leisure lovers, and ball-chasers alike. Drink in the fresh country air as you embark on a gentle amble to Codden Hill (2 miles) then feast alongside the friendly locals with a hearty pub lunch (within 100 metres). Sample the local surf culture with a water sports session on the waves of Westward Ho! Beach (11 miles) or sample unbeatably fresh seafood on the Appledore Quayside (12 miles).

This is a beautiful little cottage, spotlessly clean & really comfortable. The garden is fully enclosed and safe for dogs. The hot tub was lovely at the end of a day of walking. The village pub food is exceptional.

Great cottage We had a great holiday, plenty room for 2 and a dog. The garden was very secure so no worrying about the dog getting out. The cottage overall was perfect. Going in the hot tub in the evening was a lovely way to end our day. We will be back. Thank you.

Lovely cottage for 2. The cottage has great characters on the outside and it is very modern inside. The hot tub in the enclosed garden is a great addition too to enjoy the start and end of the day.

Great, comfortable and well-equipped cottage conveniently located to explore north Devon. Proximity to busy pub was helpful given the bad weather we had due to Storm Ciearan! Sarah was really helpful in addressing the lack of coat hangers and checking we were ok with the cottage. Would definitely book again.

The cottage itself was beautiful and very well thought out. The information details of what is in the local area and attractions where very limited. Unfortunately was advised that this would be updated whilst we were away however this was never received. We had a few disruptions from valuations and visits from national grid which unfortunate but diRead mored spoil our time alittle. We would definitely be coming back to North devon as feel we missed so much due to lack of information on the area Hide

Really lovely cottage, so glad we found it, lovely and clean, perfect location for the North Devon coast, well equipped, biggest walled TVs I have watched in the bedroom and lounge. The enclosed garden is a big advantage for your furry friend, lots of walks within easy distance from the cottage. I would definitely recommend to my friends.

It appeared to us that this cottage is new to the holiday cottage market - the owner has clearly put a lot of time, money and effort into it. There are a couple of teething issues which would fully expect the owner to fix ASAP given the work they have already completed to a high standard. Overall the cottage is a credit to them. Parking on the roadRead more was never an issue. The friendly local pub is two mins walk up the road and Bishops Tawton is well located for exploring north Devon. Hide
