This delightful stone cottage nestles in beautiful countryside within the small hamlet of Muddiford. Surrounded by lush fields and grazing animals, it is the perfect choice for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Being close to the edge of Exmoor National Park and within easy driving distance of the spectacular North Devon coastline guests here really can enjoy the best of both worlds. Imaginatively designed to allow garden access from all rooms, the main entrance is on the upper level. French doors lead in from the patio to the stylish and spacious open plan living room with an impressive vaulted ceiling and character beams. Light and bright throughout with comfy leather sofas and attractive fitted kitchen/dining area this really is a lovely living space. A solid wood staircase leads down to the lower level and two pretty bedrooms, with doors out onto the garden, are served by a separate modern bathroom. Ashtree Cottage is located where the lane ends. The garden/driveway is enclosed by wooden fencing and two five bar gates, the second of these gives direct access to twelve acres of meadowland with a stream running through, occasionally used by the owners sheep and shetland pony. The footpath from the lane, across into the fields is seldom used, however, you may decide to take a stroll down to the Muddiford Inn for well earnt refreshment! Outside the cottage's living room door is a level lawned garden and patio area enjoying the wonderful rural outlook. For couples or small families Ashtree Cottage is a true delight and guests will love to return again and again.

A fantastic cottage in an idyllic rural location. We arrived to fresh roses in a vase, clotted cream tea with homemade jam and a spotless, cosy cottage with excellent facilities. We will certainly be returning, as we feel one week was nowhere near long enough to explore this fantastic part of North Devon.Mrs V Furst - 22nd August 2015
