Set in a pretty courtyard within the grounds of the owners thatched home this delightful single storey cottage is conveniently placed with the nearby town of Barnstaple, just a short drive away.

Set in idyllic countryside with beautiful walks on the doorstep, this pretty property is a perfect peaceful getaway for two. Quaint and comfortable, this little cottage is the ideal place to spend some quality time with your other half while still being close to lots of things to do. Set sail from Bideford (14 miles) to wildlife-rich Lundy Island for a chance to spot puffins and seals or grab your bicycle or hiking boots and join the 180-mile Tarka Trail from Barnstaple (5.5 miles).

 

Whether you’re creating a masterpiece in the on-site art room (available by arrangement) or simply relaxing in the open-plan living area, it won’t take long to feel relaxed here. Cook up a storm in the kitchen and eat at the perfectly formed dining table or head out to the patio area to dine alfresco. Sizzle up a BBQ out here on summer evenings to make the most of the good weather. Make sure you take a wander around the owners’ grounds, where there are fields and a lake where you’re welcome to spend the morning fishing.

 

The 6-mile circular walk from Swimbridge (1 mile) through Kerscott and Dennington Barton is a must if you’re a keen hiker; the climb out of the village is steep but you’re rewarded with stunning views at the top. The beaches at Croyde (17 miles), Woolacombe (19 miles) and Saunton Sands (14 miles) are fantastic for surfing, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro. Satisfy your sweet tooth at Quince Honey Farm (7 miles) on a tasting tour where you can see the beehives in action – and even hold a frame of bees!

Beautiful garden and the dogs were a joy to see whenever we returned from a trip out. Love all the little extras Zena left round the cottage for us, especially the homemade scones.

The pictures don't do this place justice, it is beautiful. Ms Burland is very kind and gave us lots of little added extras for our arrival like scones she made, tea bags, eggs etc. It is just lovely, well worth the money.
