This character cottage is brimming with chocolate box charm through exposed beams, cottage windows, and uneven ceilings.
This attached character cottage is part of an impressive 16th century manor, 2 miles from Bradworthy village in North Devon. Sized for smaller families, it has bags of authentic features and old-world charm in a tranquil rural location. Amid 5.5 acres of beautiful grounds, there is access (shared with three other properties here) to a solar-heated swimming pool in summer months, as well as a sculpture garden and a large lawn area with BBQ.
The stone-built cottage faces a secluded courtyard, and there are garden seats in a sunny spot for a leisurely coffee. The open-plan kitchen/dining room has everything required for easy holiday mealtimes, and you’ll enjoy the cheerful tiling, cottage decoration and exposed beams and stonework. The cosy lounge is perfect for relaxing by the wood burner, with warm coloured fabrics and carpeting, and coastal artworks on the walls. The double room is a serene haven with cooler shades and homely touches, the twin room is bright and has a delightful garden view, and the bathroom has a bath for some pampering time. Access to a utility room with coin-operated washer and dryer, and communal freezer is shared. Outside the kitchen, there is a pretty rear patio with seating and views of the well-planted shared gardens beyond.
The manor is in the peaceful Devonshire countryside, 2 miles along a hedge-lined lane from Bradworthy village, which has shops, a garage, and a welcoming pub serving home-cooked food. Your nearest beach is 8 miles away at Welcombe Mouth, or for a more lively beach day with nearby shops and cafes, head to Bude 11 miles away.
