A superb shepherds hut with outside seating, the village pub and store are close by and the golden sandy beach of Westward Ho! is a short drive.
Located in beautiful Devon countryside in the grounds of the owners’ home, this little cabin is a perfect romantic retreat for two. Cosy and comfortable, this property is an opportunity to spend some time away from busy life in an idyllic setting close to beaches, walking and cycling trails and lots of historic attractions. Wake up to the sounds of wildlife waking up, head out to the patio and watch the morning unfold over the lake and fields beyond.
Whether you’re spending quiet time fishing or practising your putting on the green (by arrangement), you’ll have no trouble finding a way to unwind here. The interiors are finished in soothing white and earthy tones, giving you a real feel of being close to nature, and there are plenty of quaint farmhouse-style touches dotted throughout. Cook up a storm in the kitchen and eat in the dining area, which then folds down to become your bed for the night; snuggle up and dream about what tomorrow has in store for you. Make sure you spend some time strolling the grounds and surrounding fields.
Head off into Barnstaple (5.5 miles) to experience the historic Pannier Market and pick up some local produce and souvenirs. There’s also access to the 180-mile Tarka Trail here; take off on foot or hire bicycles from the Tarka Trail Cycle Hire (6 miles). Stunning Saunton Sands is only 14 miles away, while popular Croyde (17 miles) and Woolacombe (19 miles) are also well worth the trip. If you like all things sweet, go on a tasting tour at Quince Honey Farm (7 miles) and take a closer look inside the working hives.
