House Martins is idyllically located in North Devon countryside within driving distance of rugged, scenic coastline, Exmoor and the sandy surfing beach at Woolacombe. Tucked away down a quiet lane in the grounds of the owner's Georgian country house and beside its sister property Oriel, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Complete with its own individual hot tub and thoughtfully converted from a former barn, character has been retained with exposed beams, oak doors and slate flooring throughout. An open plan living room with wood burning stove ensures cosy evenings at any time of year. The lovely country style kitchen provides everything you need for rustling up a delicious family meal, to enjoy inside or al fresco on the rear patio with countryside views. The cottages has its own outdoor hot tub. Three bedrooms are located off the hallway to one end of the barn, all attractively presented and served by a family bathroom. The property is situated on the outskirts of the village of Muddiford and only a short drive from the market town of Barnstaple. Such a central location is perfect for exploring this beautiful area, whether you prefer walking cliff top paths on the South West Coast Path, cycling, horse riding or simply relaxing on one of the stunning beaches, House Martins has a warm welcome at the end of the day. An out of town supermarket is less than 5 miles away, just outside the Victorian coastal town of Ilfracombe.

The property and location were lovely and very dog friendly. The owners were very friendly and were able to suggest places for us to visit. Everything was very clean and the hot tub was an added bonus!

Mrs L,

Superb property in a beautiful location with brilliant amenities and very clean. The owners were extremely helpful also through stay - thoroughly recommend.

Mr J,

This was a great place for us - remote, quiet and peaceful but with great access to the top places in North Devon. The hot tub was beautiful and it was great to have a garden space for our puppy.

Ms B,

Absolutely gorgeous property in rural location with wonderful hot tub . Particularly enjoyed the very quiet setting no traffic nor light pollution just a wake up to bird song Fantastic . We loved the fact that the cottage had sumptuously comfy beds, was very well furnished with appropriate facilities and cooking utensils and had a small rear enclosed grass garden which proved safe for our small cocker spaniel to wander in safely in between walks . The separate tap for the filtered water was also really delicious. We booked this as a last minute family break and so glad we did . Whilst there we used it as a base to visit the key Pitt’s quad biking ( just up the road ) Clovelly and also North Devon aqua park all on our list of holiday attractions . Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely return

mrs F,

Lovely cottage, very well equipped.
