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.
