Detached barn conversion property with a private hot tub, situated in a tranquil location in rural Devon, just seven miles from the beach at Instow, and seven miles from the bustling town of Barnstaple.

Looking for a getaway for two in the scenic and serene Devon countryside? This cottage is the perfect place for you. Sleeping two, this wonderful barn conversion has a private hot tub, cosy lounge area and king-size bedroom - making it ideal for a couples’ retreat. A spiral staircase and snug area give the property a perfect mixture of classic and contemporary, while it’s well-placed to explore some of North Devon’s best features, including its beaches, coastal attractions and towns.


Situated in a tranquil North Devon hamlet, this barn conversion is perfect for guests who want to escape their busy daily lives. Soak in the private hot tub, housed on an enclosed patio, before heading inside to the open-plan living space. Here, a relaxing, spacious lounge complete with recliner sofas and a wood burner is separated from the kitchen/diner by a stylish open-tread spiral staircase. Upstairs, a cutesy galleried bedroom with king-size bed and dressing table await, along with a cosy snug area for nights in. It’s one of two barn conversions which sit across from each other on a courtyard, which can be booked with its sister property to accommodate six guests. Regretfully the property doesn't accept children under 12.


Although you’ll be ‘out in the sticks’, as they say in Devon, you’ll still be within close proximity to some of the region’s top days out. The lively town of Barnstaple is home to an array of fantastic restaurants and shops and only 7 miles away, while there’s an excellent range of sandy beaches along the nearby coast. The pretty village beach of Instow is 7 miles away, while the quintessential British seaside resort of Westward Ho! and its Blue Flag award-winning beach is 11 miles from the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

For a quiet relaxing holiday, Cottage, Hiscott, could not be better. A short distance from Barnstaple, coastal resorts and many other interesting places to visit. Just relax in the hot tub or on the outside furniture overlooking a beautiful landscaped garden.

Brilliant property, lovely location nice and peaceful, 5 star hosts will do anything for you. Lovely to chill in the hot tub after a long day exploring.

Lovely barn conversion, with plenty of space, good location central to all popular spots, 15 minute drive to town centre. Private parking with gated off drive which was great for dogs. Dogs cannot go upstairs though, so if separation anxiety in pet a problem this would be a no. Owners very kind and welcoming.
