The Stables is a delightful recent conversion of old stables with its own enclosed cottage garden and private parking. It is one of three cottages set within a small holding of 8 acres in the idyllic countryside of North Devon, just a short drive to the beautiful beaches and coastline that North Devon has to offer.

The Stables has original vaulted beams and laminated oak floor, it has a large open plan kitchen/lounge and dining area. This characterful room is light and spacious with a bespoke wooden kitchen painted in skylight blue and has a stunning white Minerva worktop. An attractive wooden dresser provides a great focal point and extra storage for the kitchen. You have a oak dining table perfect for those family gatherings with Fisherman’s lamp pendants suspended from the beams. The owners have mixed old and new furniture giving it a real eclectic country feel. The lounge area has a large comfy sofa, easy leather chair and smart TV. To one corner is a study area with an antique desk, USB sockets and bookcase filled with an excellent selection of reading material and board games for a quieter time. French doors lead out onto the sunny patio, perfect for breakfast outside, and from the lovely cottage garden there are views across the stream and over the fields. Hidden at the end of the garden is a bridge made from wood from the original reclaimed manger and stable doors, that leads out ot the fields and trampolines for the children to play. Bedroom one has a Double size bed, chest of drawers, wardrobe, smart TV, USB sockets and a private en-suite bathroom with bath, basin and WC. Bedroom two has twin beds with a zip and link mattress to create a king size bed if requested. The second bathroom has a large walk in shower with monsoon shower and a non-slip slate effect floor. There are 3 grab handles and a higher WC to aid guests with limited mobility.

This is a wonderful location where children are welcomed to help feed the animals with the owner in the morning, including goats, kune kune pigs, ducks, Shetland ponies and chickens and collect fresh, free range eggs.  A great communal games room in an opposite barn provides fun for children of all ages, scooters, table tennis, pool table, board games and a vast selection of toys is available - a wonderful place to socialise and meet new friends. Within the vast grounds there are sunken trampolines, swings, climbing frames, fire pit and a stream for paddling in. Please note all play equipment is used at your own risk. Also a public footpath nearby is great for exercising dogs. If you can tear yourself away from this lovely environment, the wonderful Marwood Hill Gardens and tea rooms are just a short drive away or you can walk up an appetite and set off across the fields for a hearty half hour walk to the Crown Inn at West Down for a delicious home cooked meal. The pretty Victorian seaside town of Ilfracombe is also just a scenic drive away.
