In a picturesque coastal setting Garden Cottage is one of two romantic cottages at Saltdene, Combe Martin. Saltdene comprises of Ancient Thatch Cottage (the owners own home) a 16th Century Grade II Listed cottage and romantic Love Cottage (sleeps 2). All are set in four and a half acres of beautiful meadow and woodland, the grounds overlooking Combe Martin Bay. Newberry Beach, a smaller beach in the bay is just a stones throw away from the bottom of the drive. This popular coastal village is steeped in history and offers a good choice of pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and shops, which are 300m away.
For keen walkers the South West Coast Path runs past Saltdene with exhilarating walks and breathtaking views along the coast. Exmoor National Park is on your doorstep with many beauty spots, all just a scenic drive away, including Lynton & Lynmouth linked by the famous cliff railway.
The front door opens into the kitchen/dining space where you will find a stone fireplace with electric effect woodburner, kitchen area with electric cooker, microwave and fridge with ice box. From this room the staircase leads upstairs to a bedroom (which has a Superking bed, can be two singles) and a seating area. In the bedroom, four steps lead down to a small rear hallway, off which the bathroom is located. A decked patio is just outside the rear hallway and can double as a boot room. The cottage's garden is enclosed with a small sloped lawn area and offers you another place in which to unwind.
Please note: Given Garden Cottage's unique coastal location, guests are advised to keep pets on a lead when enjoying the grounds as part of the boundary is made up of sea cliffs.

Garden Cottage was amazing, it's quirky but finished to a high standard with all that you need any type of holiday. The owners are very helpful without being obtrusive. The area has stunning views, great beaches and the country walks and drives are breathtaking. Combe Martin is fairly quiet, but friendly and has increasing facilities and activities availability. Kayak hire is available. There is a large range of attractions locally, but you will need a car to make the most of them. Mr Garry Brown - 29th July 2018

A beautiful cottage in a perfect location. Wonderful welcome including a Devon cream tea; everything we could have asked for and more. The cottage is well equipped and has a super king size bed and a quiet private seating area outside. The owners live in the neighbouring cottage and are are there if you need them but respect your privacy. We would stay here again and thoroughly recommend this cottage. Mr R Mallory - 6th August 2017
