Chestnut Cottage is a delightful property in the heart of the village of Westleigh situated between the larger towns of Barnstaple and Bideford. Just a short stroll from the village inn and only 1.25 miles from the popular village and estuary beach at Instow with its choice of family friendly pubs, tea rooms, comprehensive delicatessen and shop. Instow also has easy access to the Tarka Trail which follows the route of the old railway, providing miles of foot and cycle paths along the coast.

This family owned cottage is warm and comfortable and has been tastefully decorated throughout. Steps lead up to the entrance and into the light and airy kitchen where there is a small dining area, dresser and views out to the patio.  The charming living room features a multi fuel wood burner with large natural stone surround, a delightful focal point whilst providing warmth for cosy nights in. The beamed ceiling adds character whilst comfy seating makes it an easy room to simply sit and relax. A snug/study area leads into a small sun room, ideal for drying clothes and patio doors lead out to a paved area with table and chairs. Accessed by stone steps there is also a further large decked area providing a sheltered and secluded setting from which to enjoy countryside views towards the Torridge Estuary. Two pretty bedrooms, each with views over the village and countryside are on the first floor; a double plus single with en suite shower room and a further double adjacent to a good sized family bathroom.
