  • Mr Campkin

    “Fantastic cottage through out.”


    Drive up to the cottages is steep then take the right hand fork towards the cottages and it levels out. Cottage is very well equipped, comfy and home from home. Parking to the right of cottage is wide but bit tight to reverse into due to width of road in front of cottage. Local pub is the Portsmouth Arms. there is a path down to the right of the cottages that zig-zags down to a gate half way down the road. Quicker than using the access road. Pub does quality food and Landlord is a great guy called Steve. Would recommend and use again.

The property

High Bickington 2 miles.

Valley View is nestled on the outskirts of the rural village of High Bickington in rural Devon.

This detached dwelling is ideal for a peaceful family holiday or for those ramblers looking to explore the Tarka Trail and the numerous range of outdoor pursuits within the area.

After an adventure-filled day, be welcomed into a brightly decorated open-plan living room, boasting all of necessities for a week-long break with the family.

In here, the designated chef will be delighted with the spacious kitchen area, where they can rustle up an evening treat before sinking into the sofas with the rest of the group to watch a family-favourite DVD.

As the evening draws to a close, head upstairs to retire to one of the two bedrooms, comprising of a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a twin bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, each boasting their very own private balcony area, perfect for a morning coffee or catching glimpses of the sunsets in the evening.

Step outside to take a leisurely stroll amongst the forest down to the River Taw, or enjoy your meals on the private patio area during the warmer months.

For local amenities, you will find a pub within a mile of the cottage and a shop within two miles which is ideal for picking up any holiday treats.

If you are visiting with a keen fisher, you can pick whether to spend your day at the wonderful fishing port of Appledore or the fishing village of Clovelly.

Alternatively, spend a summer’s afternoon at one the many sandy beaches on the east coast before tackling one of the watersports on offer.
