This delightful property nestles on the hillside in the picturesque Exmoor village of Parracombe. Laurel Cottage is a spacious character cottage offering some original features and lovely country views and is a very comfortable dog friendly base for couples and families wanting to explore the splendour of Exmoor and the magnificent coastline in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The cottage offers accommodation over three floors. Two attractive bedrooms on the first floor each have a kingsize four poster bed and one has a dressing area, en suite and leads onto a single bedroom ideal for a young child. The second floor is accessed by narrow, steep stairs with low headroom and offers a twin and single room with sloping ceilings. On the ground floor there is ample space for relaxation including a cosy living room with woodburner in feature fireplace and a small conservatory where you can enjoy the country views no matter what the season. A country style kitchen offers everything you will need to prepare meals for family and friends, whilst a separate dining room provides a space for formal or informal dining. The mature rear garden is fully enclosed with a sheltered patio ideal for taking those opportunities to enjoy alfresco dining whilst enjoying the delightful views.
The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is only 10 minutes drive to either the picturesque twin coastal villages of Lynton and Lynmouth or the popular seaside resort of Combe Martin. However with a small village shop and local inn offering food both within a short downhill walk you may wish to just enjoy the tranquillity of Devon village life or the many Exmoor walks easily accessible close by.

We absolutely loved this place! It was so homely, lovely and clean and so very well equipped, with everything you could possibly need whatever you chose to make or do! (We have an Aga at home so this wasn't an issue for us) We ate outside most of the time - or in the wonderful Fox and Goose pub just down the road. The beds were comfortable and luxurious, I loved having a dressing room and my son loved all the stairs and rooms leading to other rooms. I would definitely recommend this property and would love to return in the Autumn or at Christmas. It felt like a home from home and was so relaxing and welcoming. Well done to the owners and to Steph for making it so! Mrs Paula Bill - 2nd August 2018
Would highly recommend Laurel Cottage, a lovely, relaxing base from which to explore the fabulous North Devon coastMs I Davies Pugh - 20th February 2018
We were extremely happy with Laurel Cottage, a lovely house in a quite location, perfect for exploring North Devon, 10 out of 10 Mrs Debra Roberts - 2nd October 2017
Lovely, comfortable and clean cottage. Well stocked garden with fantastic views. Quiet and spacious for a family. Perfect as a base for visiting our relatives in the village. Mrs Rachel Belcher - 7th August 2017
Laurel Cottage was a complete delight; welcoming, comfortable with everything that we needed for a relaxing and memorable stay. The views to the rear are stunning and the property is perfectly situated to access both the north and west facing coasts nearby. The walk to Lynmouth from Parracombe via Hunters Inn and the Valley of the Rocks is not to be missed. We hope to plan a return visit.Mr R Menaldino - 2nd April 2017
The cottage was clean with comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. Lovely views from the garden and rear of cottage. The nearby Fox & Goose is a real treat. Will certainly look to stay at a Marsdens' cottage again.Mrs Barbara West - 6th October 2016
