Peacefully tucked away in the heart of Devon amongst some of England’s most stunning countryside, within easy reach of seaside resorts and just a short walk to the heart of the pretty village and pub.

This charming country cottage is set on the owner's private land, bestowing wonderful seclusion from the maelstrom of modern life. Set 18 miles northwest of Exeter in the heart of ‘The River Country', Lapford is a traditional rural village that's steeped in history and folklore. The cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway, as a base to explore the rugged wonders of Dartmoor and Exmoor, or just to wander the glorious surrounding countryside. Lapford train station opens up the sensational North and South Devon Heritage Coasts.

Inside the reverse-level semi-detached cottage you'll find a pleasing blend of traditional and modern, with loving touches throughout. From the pretty cobbled courtyard, enter the kitchen/diner's welcoming rustic ambience, with its sleek Art Deco feel and Scandi tranquillity. The bathroom has a meditative Mediterranean mood, with soothing shades of sea, sand and shell. Upstairs, the lounge has a sunny window seat with country views. The bedroom is dreamy bliss for tired limbs and excited minds. Next door, the owner's B&B has a licenced bar with farm cider and full English breakfasts. Share the owner's patio and gardens for al fresco meals and croquet; find secret corners, or amble through the avenue of trees on your exploration of the land.

Head northwest for idyllic beaches at Braunton (30 miles) and Westward Ho! (33 miles), and learn to tame breakers at the Surf School. Explore pretty Appledore (34 miles) and the bustling port of Bideford (28 miles), with their independent pubs, restaurants, seafood, shops and galleries and the North Devon Maritime Museum. Roam southeast and discover the delights of the English Riviera at sweet Teignmouth (35 miles) and idyllic Dawlish Warren (34 miles); the entire Riviera Line from Paignton to Exmouth is paradise.
