    “On the whole, it was a lovely cottage, and we had a really great holiday.”

    However, the cottage is listed as being suitable for 6 adults and 1 child, and we did not find this the case. The sofa bed was at least 20 years old, and sloped into a v with a 1 inch thick mattress. I tried sleeping on this with my three year old son, and we just sank into the middle and it was extremely uncomfortable, there is no way you could sleep on it for a week.

    However, the cottage is listed as being suitable for 6 adults and 1 child, and we did not find this the case. The sofa bed was at least 20 years old, and sloped into a v with a 1 inch thick mattress. I tried sleeping on this with my three year old son, and we just sank into the middle and it was extremely uncomfortable, there is no way you could sleep on it for a week. We resorted to pulling the cushion out of the sofa bed, and just putting it on the floor, however when you are paying for a cottage, you don't really want it to feel like camping. This could be easily fixed by putting a double bed in this room, as we did not use the room for anything else other than sleeping, as there was plenty of space in the rest of the cottage. The shower was also a little disappointing, as it would cut out if anyone flushed the downstairs toilet, or if the washing machine was on. For the taller ones amongst our party it was also a little low down, but this was hard to avoid due to the character of the building. We loved the records, games and books and our children really enjoyed playing in the large garden. There was plenty of seating, a bbq and the kitchen was well equipped. We also enjoyed the scones jam and cream on arrival.

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.
