With picture postcard looks, this pretty little thatched cottage is situated just to the edge of Braunton in the pretty hamlet of Heanton. Sitting beside the 16th century Church of St Augustine, in the centre of a row of three, Monks Cottage retains all the charm and character of its age with low ceilings, steep staircase and heavy oak beams throughout, please mind your head! The front entrance is directly off the lane and opens into a spacious hall with an array of books and lots of room for coats, walking boots or buckets and spades. In the cosy living room comfy sofas surround an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and a separate dining room has large oak table and corner seating. The kitchen is well equipped and overlooks a lovely sunny cottage garden, private and fully enclosed. As might be expected in a property of this age the family bathroom is on the ground floor. There are three bedrooms upstairs offering flexible sleeping arrangements, a cosy double room and two twin rooms leading one to the other. Braunton is just a few minutes drive away with a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Monks Cottage is ideally located for the spectacular beaches or beautiful country walks at any time of year. Please note the cottage has low ceilings, low door frames and a steep staircase.

What a delightful cottage! And so easy to book online! Great aspect and we didn't mind the short walk to the church car park - we visited the church before leaving: Recommended. Had the best of both worlds as the cottage is low ceilings and timber beams, crooked walls and floors, not one stair matches another, all very quaint, whilst the kitchen is new and full of mod-cons. Plenty of lovely fluffy towels of varying sizes; lots of kitchen tea towels (and a pinny!). We all found the beds comfy, and slept really well. The little garden was perfect for our dog, contained her yet permitted a little nosy at the neighbours in the driveway behind. I was quite happy sitting there in the morning sun with my dog and a cuppa whilst the teenagers did what teenagers do: wasted the morning sleeping! We found the cottage well placed to visit the North Devon beaches and coastal towns, non of which were too far away. The narrow roads were interesting and we seemed to have no problems despite visiting during the height of the season. We love it! It took no time to feel like home. Thank you for having us.

The cottage was delightful, acclimatizing to the low ceiling beams and door frames did not take too long, and the enclosed garden was great for the dogs. The location of the cottage allows for easy access by car to the beach and some wonderful walks.mrs Penelope Ixer - 15th April 2017
Delightful, quirky cottage. At 5' 2"" I had no problems - taller guests may need a crash helmet! Low ceilings add to charm but best to know about them in advance perhaps. Secluded and enclosed garden adds to dog friendliness. A lovely spot for a truly relaxing break.Mrs J Ratcliffe - 20th June 2016
Property is lovely;very peaceful and charming.Low beams, uneven floors and steep stairs delightful. Very clean too. White goods excellent, heating good; we didn't need the wood burner, even in December.Mrs Karen Baddeley-Clark - 6th January 2016
