The property

Chulmleigh 4.6 miles.

This charming single-storey cottage is attached to the owners' 16th century cottage in a rural waterside setting on the outskirts of the small village of Ashreigney, near Chulmleigh in North Devon.

This Chulmleigh cottage is a perfect quiet retreat for a couple wanting to escape to the countryside.

There is a double bedroom and a family shower room with the added feature of a baby change unit and drying area.

The cosy sitting room with dining area overlooks the sweeping folds of the extensive waterside garden, which has an abundance of birds and wildlife and where guests are free to wander down to the streams and watersmeet.

This Chulmleigh cottage has a private sunny patio where it is easy to while away an hour or two over breakfast, and bridleways and footpaths from the doorstep lead past the pony paddocks to green meadows and beautiful woodland where you are likely to spot deer.

Just a few miles from this welcoming Chulmleigh cottage, Chulmleigh is a small village with attractive cob-thatched cottages, an impressive church and a welcoming inn.

There is plenty to explore in this part of Devon including the RHS Rosemoor garden, the story of Tarka the Otter and the dramatic North Devon coast with miles of sandy beaches and pretty fishing villages such as Clovelly and Appledore.

A quiet Chulmleigh cottage base, but with no shortage of rural and coastal pleasures.

About the location


Winkleigh 6.3 miles; Barnstaple 18 miles; Exeter 25 miles.

Chulmleigh is a delightful village in the heart of Devon, with a real, old-fashioned community spirit. With its narrow cobbled lanes, rows of thatched cottages, courtyards and welcoming inns it is a pleasure to wander here in this relatively unspoilt part of Devon. It is a year-round destination, with summer gardens and winter walks to enjoy. The 180-mile Tarka Trail starts in nearby Eggesford Forest, which is on the banks of the River Taw, and follows a pretty route through woodland, and offers some spectacular moorland views. Chulmleigh is particularly good for birdwatchers, who can spot kingfishers, cormorants, goosanders and dippers along the quiet riverbanks. Fishing is a popular sport in the area, with salmon and sea trout in the rivers and coarse fishing on Catham Lakes and Huntacott Water. Chulmleigh is midway between the national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and within easy reach of the rugged north Devon coast.
