One of four delightful properties furnished to a high standard with original features, situated on a large tranquil farm in the heart of the North Devon countryside.

Situated on a farm courtyard, you can experience Devon from a local perspective, making it an authentic romantic getaway. The patio area just outside is ideal for a quiet drink in the evening as the sun sets, or a morning coffee reading the paper. You have access to the owner's orchard, and with plenty of walks nearby, your dogs will fall in love with the countryside too. The village of Umberleigh is less than a mile away if you fancy an evening meal at one of the local pubs.

All located on one floor, this farmhouse-style lodge, one of a complex of properties, offers simple yet characterful accommodation. The decor is contemporary but with traditional elements mixed with the modern to make this a homely and cosy getaway. Enjoy a home-cooked meal in the kitchen/diner: the effective use of space makes cooking simple in this well-equipped kitchen, and the calm colours ensure you have a relaxed dining experience. Featuring a stone wall, wooden beams and a vaulted ceiling, the lounge/bedroom is very cosy, with atmospheric lighting and pastel colours to create a romantic and stylish space. Watch a film on the TV while snuggled up on the sofa. A shower room and a WC completes this property.

The River Taw runs alongside Umberleigh, as well as some picturesque woods, providing the perfect space to go on longer walks and appreciate your surroundings. If you prefer a coastal adventure, there are a plethora of beautiful beaches within 20 miles, such as Saunton, Croyde and Westward Ho!. Bring your surfboards and wetsuits and surf the waves, or why not spend an afternoon fishing? There are some lovely villages to explore too, such as Appledore with quaint cobbled streets and a thriving quay, just 17 miles away or head to the market town of Barnstaple (8 miles) for a variety of eateries, cinema and theatre.

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

Super cottage if you wish to visit North Devon. In easy reach of the magnificent coastline. We would happily return again and recommend it to friends and family

Reviewed by Francess 17th September 2019

The cottage is the best I have visited in the last 5 years. Everything that you need is provided right down to washing detergent for the washing machine. It was immaculately clean,well maintained and there is a well equipped Games Barn to entertain the whole family if it rains. Books and DVDs also available to borrow, who could want more?

The wine and biscuits were a nice touch as were the complimentary eggs left on the doorstep.The accommodation was clean and homely all be it small which we were expecting so it happily accommodated the two of us plus two dogs. The location was ideal as a base for us to visit family and Read morefriends in nearby Bideford, Braunton and Barnstaple which we caught the train from Umberleigh Station to. A lovely weekend. Hide
