Mrs A,

Characterful cottage, with low ceilings and doorways, so mind your head! It's well equipped, with a small private garden. In a quiet location just outside busy Braunton, with easy access to coast, pubs, cafés etc.

Beautiful character cottage in a lovely village location. Ideal for dogs with an enclosed garden and easy access to public footpaths in the village.
