  • "Just got back from Curli cottage."

    Its a beautiful place. Very homely, comfortable and had everything we needed. A lovely little courtyard garden which was perfect for breakfast, dinner with a glass of wine in the evening. The low door's and steep stairs only added to it's quaintness as it is a traditional old cottage. Would definitely recommend.

    So pleased that you were able to appreciate the quaintness of this lovely little cottage. We want you to feel at home while on your holiday and have a positive experience. Thank you for being great guests. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in the idyllic village of Northam, just a short distance from Westward Ho!, is this character, mid-terrace abode, CurLi Cottage.

Packed with character and charm, CurLi Cottage is a great base for a family or couple looking to stay in the centre of Northam and access the delights of Westward Ho!, Appledore and Bideford.

Step through the front door into the lounge, where you can put your feet up beside the woodburner and discuss the plan of action for your time away.

Move into the kitchen/diner, where you can conjure up a feast using the electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge, before settling at the dining table to enjoy your cooking.

Take the evening to the south-west facing courtyard garden, perfect for enjoying your favourite tipple as the sun sets.

Move to the first floor to catch your rest, offering a king-size and a single bed, each neutrally presented and offering sea glimpses towards Saunton Sands.

Around the corner lies The Golden Lion, where you can enjoy a refreshing pint and game of pool, whilst a little further along is a convenience store and a fish and chip shop for when you fancy something quick.

Head to Westward Ho! Beach, a lovely stretch of sand where you can try your hand at a variety of watersports, paddle the shores or sunbathe during the warmer months, before stopping off at the Morans Thai Restaurant for a delicious dinner.

A similar distance away is Appledore, home to more restaurants, pubs and shops and a little fishing boat ferry that heads across to Instow beach.

Don’t forget to visit the amenities of Bideford, including the Art Gallery and Museum and the Railway Heritage Centre, so there really is plenty to do nearby!

For a gorgeous break to a bustling region of Devon, look no further than CurLi Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Westward Ho! 1.3 miles; Bideford 2 miles; Barnstaple 11 miles.

Northam is a small village with a restaurant, pub, takeaway and small supermarket and lies on the hill above the lively village of Westward Ho! Westward Ho! has a two mile long glorious sandy beach, an excellent selection of cafes, bars and restaurants, a surf school and shops. The beach is popular for surfing and kite surfing, plus life guards are on duty during the summer season and there's a designated dog area. The Tarka Trail runs through Bideford and is especially popular with cyclists, with cycle hire, including child buggies and even dog buggies available here and at many places along the way. Northam Burrows is part of North Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is enjoyed by walkers, and the Royal North Devon Golf Club is also here. For the more energetic the coastal path to Peppercombe and Clovelly offers stunning views along the coastline. From Bideford there are boat trips to Lundy Island, and nearby Appledore has fascinating narrow streets, interesting shops, fish and chips shops and a restaurant, as well as fishing trips. Family attractions nearby include the Big Sheep and Milky Way, as well as National Trust properties, Hartland Abbey, RHS Rosemoor and Dartington Glass. Also Clovelly is delightful with its quay, steep cobbled streets and donkeys and no cars are allowed down into the village. There's plenty to see and do from Northam.
