Property code: OC-ROOST

Surrounded by natural woodland and fields with far-reaching views, this lovely little retreat for two is in a peaceful, romantic-getaway location complete with outdoor hot tub and covered veranda. The cottage is just under a mile from the rugged North Devon coast at Lee Bay with easy access to the South West Coast Path making it a delightful base for walkers.

On arrival, long wide gravel steps lead down through the trees to the property. Inside, guests will find that the cottage is stylishly decorated with tongue and groove wood panelling and wooden floors. The open-plan living area is an inviting space with a comfortable, reclining leather sofa and a wood burner that you can snuggle up in front of on chillier evenings. From here, doors lead out to the well-presented south-facing veranda and garden which has beautiful views. The bedroom area has a king-size bed with a luxury en-suite shower room.

An ideal base for couples exploring this wonderful area, there are plenty of walks in the surrounding area and with the beauty of Lee Bay being less than a mile, guests can explore both the coast and the countryside, plus the local pub is also less than a mile, serving great food. Further afield, with its picturesque harbour, breathtaking cliffs and sandy beaches, Ilfracombe (2 miles) offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as fishing, water sports, and coastal walks. The town is also a haven for art lovers, with numerous galleries showcasing local talent. Otherwise, why not head 4 miles to the beautiful golden sands of Woolacombe?

Secluded property which lived up to how it had been described on the web site. Enjoyed it so much we booked for 2024 whilst still there. The hot tub made it, particularly because the weather was not good.

The Roost provided us with perfect downtime. A lovely private property with a homely feel and the hot tub with its spectacular view was the icing on the cake! The garden was dog friendly, as was the local pub xx A well located property with lots of walks along the coastal footpath or on beautiful beaches just short drives away.

One of the reasons we booked the property was because of the pictures and description of the garden area. Upon arriving at the property, the garden was not at all like in the pictures and description. The large expanse of garden area had been fenced off and was not accessible to us. The garden area was small and quite overgrown. I think these pictuRead moreres and description of the garden need updating as they were obviously taken when the property had first been converted 8 years ago. The description and pictures are now not a true likeness to the real garden. Hide
