    “This was a lovely cottage to stay in, very spacious and well equipped.”

    The welcome bundle including a fresh homemade cake was an absolute treat for everyone on arrival. We had a couple of hiccups but these were soon sorted by the friendly and helpful Housekeeper (Sarah). The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and comfy and the towels are a fluffy and large (which is hard to come by with a lot of holiday cottages!). The warm utility room was brilliant for drying wetsuits and raincoats after damp days. The one downside for us was that the dining table only seats 6 people but the house sleeps 8 so we couldn't all eat together. But otherwise, I would highly recommend this lovely cottage.

    - Mrs Elliott, August 2021

    As there is seldom call to seat eight people around the dining table the two extra chairs are kept elsewhere in the cottage (one at the desk on the landing upstairs and the other in the second bedroom). When put to use these do mean eight people can be seated, albeit a little closely together. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Bittadon Cottage in Barnstaple is a semi-detached retreat situated in an elevated position, overlooking the valley and surrounded by farmland.

Bittadon Cottage can be found in the pretty hamlet of Bittadon just eight miles from the blue flag sandy beach at Woolacombe.

Bring along the family or a group of friends to enjoy all that this accommodation has to offer, from the impressive garden views to the immaculate presentation of the interior.

Featuring a snug, as well as a cosy lounge, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to relaxing, and may even wish to rest outside in the lovely suntrap of a garden with its seating area.

Discover the four beautiful bedrooms, all providing good quality beds and linen, with scenery that leans out over the gardens and open countryside.

A family bathroom accompanies the formation and a wonderful kitchen/dining room, is perfect for a delicious breakfast or an evening meal after the sun sets.

Outside there are plenty of parking spaces, with steps leading down to the entrance of the cottage, where there is a patio area with furniture.

A path from the cottage takes you to the garden and its summer house, which includes seating and children's games.

There is a path which takes you past the rear of the cottage into another garden area that sweeps through an arch into a further garden.

The bird life at this cottage is extraordinary with everything from goldfinch and siskin to buzzard and spotted woodpecker.

Swallows and house martins are regular visitors in the summer and pheasants inhabit the garden all year round.

There is much to see and do in North Devon and the cottage is within easy reach of the surfing beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe.

Other attractions include golf, fishing, walking and horse-riding, and Exmoor with its beautiful walks is a mere 10 miles away.

Barnstaple lies at the end of the magnificent Tarka Line railway journey, an all-round memorable adventure.

About the location


Exeter 40 miles.

Barnstaple enjoys a superb location at the mouth of the Taw Estuary, on the spectacular North Devon coastline between Westward Ho! and Croyde and is a short drive from the Exmoor National Park. Barnstaple is a busy traditional Devon coastal town with a pannier market, shops, restaurants and bars, along with two fabulous sandy beaches, which are popular with surfers and families. The town is renowned for its floral displays having won a Britain in Bloom award and flowers are found around every corner of the town in the most unusual places. Barnstaple lies at the end of the magnificent Tarka line railway journey, which takes you through the spectacular North Devon countryside of wooded river valleys, rugged moorland and a stretch of coastline, plus close by is the picture postcard coastal village of Clovelly. A combination of numerous long sandy beaches and family attractions makes Barnstaple a desirable holiday destination.
