This cute cottage sits in the grounds of the owners thatched house, yet privacy is assured, great for a romantic retreat at any time of year.
Surrounded by delightful grounds and a private patio area with pretty shrubs and plants, this charming cottage is the perfect little bolthole for two. Contemporary and comfortable, this property offers a lovely opportunity to rest and relax in beautiful countryside yet stay close to towns and villages that are bustling with life. Pop down to Barnstaple’s Pannier Market (6 miles) to pick up some local produce for the BBQ that you can sizzle up outside on warm summer evenings.
Whether you’re off exploring the grounds and fishing on the owners’ lake or you’re curled up on the sofa with a book, you’ll find your happy place here. The interiors feel clean and fresh with calming neutrals and soft lighting dotted throughout. Snuggle up together on the sofa in front of the Smart TV after a long day of exploring or arrange to use the on-site art room and get your creative juices flowing. If you don’t fancy cooking, head just 1 mile down the road to a popular pub that has an extensive menu and a range of ales.
There’s easy access from Barnstaple to the Tarka Trail (6 miles) for romantic walks or a refreshing bike ride; you can hire bicycles from Tarka Trail Cycle Hire and join the trail straight away. If you’d prefer a day at the beach, sandy Saunton is just 14 miles away, or you could visit the traditional seaside village Westward Ho! (15 miles). Take a trip on MS Oldenburg to wildlife-rich Lundy Island from Bideford (14 miles) and discover its unique island environment; you’re bound to see puffins, Manx Shearwaters and seals.
