This lovely barn conversion complete with an individual outdoor hot tub is a great base from which to explore all that North Devon has to offer its visitors. Oriel sits alongside its sister property, House Martins, both in tranquil surroundings on the edge of Exmoor National Park and beside the owner's own Georgian country house. Exposed stonework, oak beams and slate flooring throughout all add to the charm of Oriel, whilst a wood burning stove ensures cosy evenings at any time of year. The spacious living area is open plan with French doors opening onto a patio and lawn with stunning countryside views and outdoor hot tub. The attractively presented bedrooms are located at each end of the barn. A double bedroom accessed from the living room has French doors out onto the patio and benefits from an ensuite shower room. The second spacious double room has an additional single bed, making the property ideal for two couples or giving flexible sleeping arrangements for families. A family bathroom with roll top bath is located off the hallway. Muddiford is well situated to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside yet only a short drive from the fantastic surf and swimming beaches of Woolacombe or Croyde and the market town of Barnstaple. There are miles of inland or coastal walks to explore and a great local inn and restaurant with an extensive menu just a couple of minutes’ drive away. An out of town supermarket is less than 5 miles away, just outside the Victorian coastal town of Ilfracombe.

(Note: for larger groups of up to 11 guests, Oriel can be booked with House Martins with a 10% discounted rate- please call our office.)

Fantastic cottage, well maintained and very clean. Comfy beds and the hot tub is a great addition. Very homely, we will definitely book again.

mr B,

Lovely rural location to escape the crowded beach locations but only a short drive to a large number of beaches and entertainment

Mrs B,

Very clean, spacious, easy to find. There’s no mobile signal but WiFi was excellent. Hot tub was warm and ready for us on arrival. Recommend!

Dr G,

We had a wonderful week at Oriel Cottage. The cottage itself is lovely, nice and spacious for two people, but would be great for four as well, and a really good location for exploring north Devon. The fully enclosed garden was perfect for our dog and the hot tub was awesome for us. The garden also gets lots of sunshine all day which is great if you are blessed with good weather, as we were. Would definitely recommend.

mrs C,
