    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful and very quirky cottage. The original part of the cottage has slightly slanting steps and landing, which we got used to quite quickly. The parking is easy and in a large area. Sheila and David are the housekeepers and are both lovely and are easy to get hold of to help via email/phone or popping round with homemade scones! There is a new double bed in the room downstairs and 3 sofas in the living room. The cottage is very well equipped, lots of utensils, mirrors, cleaning products etc, especially the kitchen which exceeded our expectations. The 2 bathrooms/toilets are very useful and the shower is wonderful but if you are quite tall you wouldn't be able to stand up in it as there are many low ceiling areas. The garden is pretty, large and private, the boys enjoyed an easter egg hunt there and the road was unexpectedly busy including a main bus route although it looks very quiet. We didn't mind the traffic as it drove straight past as it wasn't excessive and didn't distract us when we were enjoying sunny weather in the garden. There are original windows, no double glazing and lots of old books, maps, games, paper and stationary etc as per the description. Lots to look at whilst relaxing. The only things that would have made the stay even better would be a blind on the kitchen window as it gets very sunny and hot in there and a larger tv, it is only 21" or 24" and a separate dvd player as the one on the television is temperamental and sometimes doesn't work at all and cuts out the sound. This is a minor thing though. There are no recyling bins for card/paper/plastic either, which would have been better if there was somewhere to put it but Sheila said to leave it in a bag and she would sort it out. The cottage instructions are a bit out of date in some areas. All in all a really beautiful cottage, the pictures don't do it justice and a lovely part of the country, close to Waitrose in Holsworthy and nearby Bude and Bideford., a recommended stay.

The property

Holsworthy 0.7 miles.

Originally a Devon longhouse, this charming 17th century semi-detached cottage oozes character and is situated in a sheltered location in the quiet hamlet of Derriton, near the market town of Holsworthy.

The features of this cosy and homely cottage near Holsworthy include exposed beams, very low ceilings in parts, slanting floors, a woodburning stove set within a feature fireplace and a large and eclectic selection of books and records.

This Holsworthy cottage will appeal to those wishing for a quiet retreat in the beautiful Devon countryside, but not that far from the dramatic North Cornwall coastline around Bude, long stretches of which are owned by the National Trust and provide fabulous walks.

This Holsworthy cottage has a sitting room, dining room with piano, and kitchen, plus the benefit of a sunny ground floor room with double bed and doors opening onto the rear garden.

There are three bedrooms upstairs plus a bathroom, but mind your head - guests need to duck on entering due to the low ceiling beam, another character feature of this charming Holsworthy cottage.

The pretty, enclosed cottage garden is bursting with roses, herbs and shrubs, and has a patio for relaxing in the sunshine whilst planning the next day out.

Holsworthy is a pleasant market town with a well-known quality supermarket, one of the largest weekly cattle markets in the south west, local shops owned and run by residents and a very friendly golf club open to non-members.

Holsworthy is in an area known as Ruby Country, with its own trail passing through the tranquil undiscovered North Devon countryside, geared for horse riders, fishermen, walkers, runners and cyclists.

Here there are some of the darkest night skies in the UK, perfect for stargazing.

The beaches around Bude are only a 15 minute drive from this Holsworthy cottage and have been voted as some of the best in England thanks to their clean golden sands and friendly seas.

Stay in this Holsworthy cottage and you will have the best of Devon and Cornwall, and the best of coast and country.
