This property could not be in a more perfect location for those who want to admire the craggy North Devon and Exmoor coastline in splendid isolation. Woody Bay Cottage, a uniquely positioned detached cottage has been in the same family ownership for many decades and is modestly furnished yet cosy and well equipped. Approached by a long private road, a footpath leads down to the rock and shingle beach below, ideal for bathing and rock pooling. The South West Coast Path runs through the bay and walkers stop to picnic on the rocks but at the end of the day the beach is often deserted. Surrounded by wooded hills, this peaceful location is around 4 miles in either direction to the nearest shops and restaurants so it may be advisable to stock up on necessities before you arrive. For those wishing to leave this coastal idyll, the pretty 'alpine-like' twin towns of Lynmouth and Lynton have a good range of amenities, and the market town of Barnstaple is 30 minutes drive by car. Exmoor National Park offers plenty of opportunities for walking, fishing, horse riding and cycling. Unparalled views from the windows grace the cottage walls like oil paintings and entice visitors to spend most of their time outside exploring. A cosy low-ceilinged lounge has an open fire and comfy seating and there is a separate dining room. A well-fitted modern kitchen has large windows displaying the views. Five bedrooms are reached by steps and steep staircases in true cottage style. Outside a lawned area is surrounded by mature shrubs and a patio with garden furniture overlooks the bay.

Beautiful part of the country. Good walking terrain and plenty of places of interest to visitDr CHRISTOPHER WALLIS - 1st October 2017
The property is comfortable and perfectly well fitted out. The interior layout is "quirky". What sets it apart is the location and the stunning views.Mrs Katharine Ford - 17th September 2017
Woody Bay Cottage is perfectly situated to enjoy incredible views across the bay and to be soothed by the sounds of the sea.Mrs Rosie Brown - 22nd August 2017
Lovely old cottage feel. Great place to get away from everything and relax. Mrs T Root - 15th August 2017
The view was outstanding, and the cottage was cozy and comfortable, with plenty of character and history. The stairs gave two of us some problems, but we (grandparents) managed with help. Log fire was cheery. Overall, a really enjoyable time, and we would recommend it to anyone.Mrs Hazel Glenister - 30th July 2017
Beautiful property and wonderful location. Wish I could have stayed longer.Mr Gary Moore - 30th May 2016
