A great base for couples and small families, this cosy stone cottage is set in a pretty courtyard, with use of a shared heated outdoor pool and children's play area.

Set in a courtyard of nine cottages, this property is the perfect base for families, being close to the two miles of golden sands at Westward Ho! If your idea of a holiday is a relaxed pace of life, stunning beaches, quaint villages, unparalleled scenery and exciting water sports, then North Devon is the place for you. The area boasts 180 miles of walking and cycle paths known as the Tarka Trail, which meanders through some of the best scenery in the country. Family attractions in the area include The Big Sheep and The Milky Way. A little further afield is the unique village of Clovelly, RHS Rosemoor and the wonderful Exmoor National Park.

On entering this delightful single-storey cottage, step into the lounge with arched picture window overlooking the front lawn. After a day of exploring the area, sit back, relax and watch your favourite TV show or the latest movie on the Smart TV/DVD. Prepare a meal or a light lunch in the kitchen equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge. At the end of the day, when it’s time to head to bed there is a triple bedroom with a double and single bed. Completing the accommodation is the bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Stepping outside you can relax in the shared BBQ area with picnic tables and garden chairs. The cottage is part of a complex of properties which share the outdoor 40ft swimming pool with seating, which is heated through the main summer months (from the last May Bank Holiday week until the 1st September only). There is also a communal children’s play area, with swings, slides, football goal posts and swing ball set. (bats and football provided) .

Within 5 to 10 minutes drive from Westward Ho, we found the property was excellent. A particular bonus was the enclosed dog run as we have a dog we would not trust off the lead. The owners could not have made us more welcome. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

We loved our stay in the bilbury/Beech cottage. The only negative was the weather and the 7 hour journey home. We will definitely be coming back sooner rather than later . Mrs Langmead was very welcoming and is a great host .

Pool is great asset to property, but every time you venture out you have to negotiate single track road. Bathroom sink tap exceedingly stiff after running hot water, frees up after using cold water.

No BBC and picture is breaking up all the time making it more or less impossible to watch. Nice touch to leave small milk in fridge. Hide
