This property could not be in a more perfect location for those who want to admire the craggy North Devon and Exmoor coastline in splendid isolation. Woody Bay Cottage, a uniquely positioned detached cottage has been in the same family ownership for many decades and is modestly furnished yet cosy and well equipped. Approached by a long private road, a footpath leads down to the rock and shingle beach below, ideal for bathing and rock pooling. The South West Coast Path runs through the bay and walkers stop to picnic on the rocks but at the end of the day the beach is often deserted. Surrounded by wooded hills, this peaceful location is around 4 miles in either direction to the nearest shops and restaurants so it may be advisable to stock up on necessities before you arrive. For those wishing to leave this coastal idyll, the pretty 'alpine-like' twin towns of Lynmouth and Lynton have a good range of amenities, and the market town of Barnstaple is 30 minutes drive by car. Exmoor National Park offers plenty of opportunities for walking, fishing, horse riding and cycling. Unparalled views from the windows grace the cottage walls like oil paintings and entice visitors to spend most of their time outside exploring. A cosy low-ceilinged lounge has an open fire and comfy seating and there is a separate dining room. A well-fitted modern kitchen has large windows displaying the views. Five bedrooms are reached by steps and steep staircases in true cottage style. Outside a lawned area is surrounded by mature shrubs and a patio with garden furniture overlooks the bay.
