Lower Court Cottage is a charming, high quality two bedroomed semi-detached cottage occupying a delightful elevated position in the traditional Devon village of Bishops Nympton with a local shop and Post Office. If you are looking for the perfect peaceful escape to the countryside then this is it. The original cottage dates back over 200 years, but has recently been modernised, to help provide high quality contemporary living in a traditional countryside cottage. The property is on the edge of Bishops Nympton, which benefits from a community run village shop and community run 'Bish Nym Bar' (both restricted opening hours). The busy market town of South Molton lies just over 3 miles away, providing a wide range of shops, restaurants, pubs and a supermarket. The beautiful Exmoor National Park is just a short drive, with an abundance of walks to choose from at every level.  For a change of scene the spectacular Exmoor/ North Devon Coastline is within easy reach, with it's range of golden sandy beaches, including the UK's best beach at Woolacombe (2016 TripAdvisor reviews).

The property is tastefully decorated throughout in a comfortable contemporary style and with space to unwind and relax. You enter the property into a welcoming entrance hall with a conveniently placed bench, so you can take off your boots following your walk in the countryside. You then enter the living room, which acts as the heart of the cottage, with its bright and spacious feel and the ability to take advantage of the far reaching views. The living room has such luxury features as a 48” Smart TV with Freeview and Sky Sports, HD, Movies and Boxsets channels and large bi-fold doors, which provide access onto a veranda overlooking the lovely established garden. The garden is well stocked, and provides the perfect vantage point to sit back and enjoy the local wildlife, including the resident hedgehog family, who can often be seen at dusk. There is a separate dining room with original fireplace and wood burning stove that provides a lovely setting to enjoy an evening meal. The well-equipped ‘country style’ kitchen has everything you will need for preparing a meal to enjoy inside or al fresco style in the garden. Upstairs you will find the two bedrooms (one king size bed & one double bed), both of which are served by a recently refurbished shower room. So whether you yearn for a truly away from it all holiday, or a high quality base to explore the fabulous beaches of North Devon and the splendour of Exmoor, then Lower Court Cottage is your ideal choice.

The cottage was in a very good location for getting around North Devon. It was clean and had all the equipment you would need. We would definitely stay here again.
