This beautifully restored barn conversion is perfectly situated nestling in the stunning Devonshire countryside, providing a perfect base for families and couples alike.

Studded into the Devonshire countryside, this gorgeous little escape is charming in every way. Across the patchwork fields and over the gravel, this pretty stone cottage comes into sight. With a rural emerald backdrop, with only the odd deer for company, it’s an opportunity to really switch off from the rest of the world. When you’re not tucked up in the cosy cottage, you’re encouraged to explore the grounds - sit by the lake and enjoy walks through the trees in the fresh country air.

The interior is utterly stunning. A delectable palette of wooden floors, neutral-toned walls and detailing, and subtle coloured hints feature in every room, creating a clean and airy, yet completely cosy space to curl up after a day exploring your new surroundings. The thoughtful attention to detail and lashings of home-from-home comforts make this a truly relaxing base. Crisp white linen dresses the beds, wooden eaves grace the ceiling and through the windows there’s an emerald green backdrop - nature’s very own canvas. The charm continues outside with an enclosed shingle garden from which you can light the BBQ and dine alfresco with nothing but the sweet scent of wildflowers and the sound of birds flying above.

Soak up the peace and tranquillity of your immediate surroundings with some wonderful walks straight from the doorstep - you’ll discover a traditional pub just 2.5 miles from the cottage, ideal for when you fancy letting someone else do the cooking. Head a little further out and you’ll come to the cliff-side village of Clovelly - lost in time, you can enjoy traffic-free streets, quaint tea rooms, fishermen’s cottages and harbourside views.

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

I would highly recommend staying. The house was lovely and very clean. We immediately felt at home. It is situated in a good location to visit the attractions, beaches and great walks. Westward Ho beach is definately worth a visit. You will not be disappointed.

The cottage is perfect, with a lovely sun deck and enclosed garden which was great for our dog. Beautiful peaceful surroundings. The hosts were very welcoming and there if you needed anything. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything you might need. We will hopefully return soon.

We had a great time on our holiday Nuthatch cottage was beautifully presented and perfect for our needs. Anna was the perfect host who had thought of everything required in the cottage. She was always available if we needed her. Even though there were other cottages next to us it always felt private. A great bonus was the large field next to us thaRead moret was part of the farm, we could let the dogs of the lead to run about in safety. We would definitely come back again and highly recommend it Hide

We would absolutely recommend The Nuthatch & Slade Farm Cottages. Beautiful and peaceful location.

This is a lovely cottage, spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and well equipped. It has a lovely sun deck and a private garden that looks out over fields. Wonderfully quiet surroundings - with only the birds and the odd tractor to disturb the silence. Anna is an extremely good host. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing break Read more- with or without dogs. Our two Jack Russells loved it - and there are plenty of good beach and cliff walks to be had in the surrounding area. Hide

A musty smell lingered for a couple of days from arrival - purchased some scented candles to take away the smell. Outdoor area was bare with very basic furniture. No homely feel, partly due to removal of soft furnishings for reasons of Covid, partly due to lack of decoration. Very dark kitchen diner made meals out more attractive. Adequate.
