On the southern edge of Exmoor, the delightful community of Brayford nestles in a wooded river valley 9 miles from Barnstaple. Peaceful, rural seclusion and abundant wild and birdlife characterise the area. Country pursuits rule the way of life, with outstanding walking across the Exmoor hills and some of the South West's best salmon and trout fishing, the River Bray being notable for its salmon fishing. The area has many visitor attractions with Lynmouth, Lynton and Combe Martin all within a 30 minute drive and the resort of Ilfracombe and the wave-swept beach at Woolacombe just a little further. For more amenities, nearby Barnstaple is an excellent shopping centre and has several quality restaurants and places of entertainment.

The description of the cottage and its surroundings were a true reflection and we had everything we could have wanted.
Mr MacDonald, Watford, June 2012
Fabulous property, ideal for a quiet weekend away from the city and away from the noise. Very quiet, property owners were very pleasant - the furnishings and the property was excellent. Close to the coast and to local markets and only 15 minutes to a supermarket to top up for food, drink etc. Ideal for pets as well. 5* really.
Mrs Lewis, Wokingham, April 2012
A very nice holiday apartment in a lovely situation. Ideal for exploring the North Devon coastline and Exmoor - a beautiful region. We were lucky with the weather as well.
