The property

Barnstaple 5 miles.

Next door to the owners’ house, one mile from the village of Muddiford, this charming cottage is just seven miles from the beautiful North Devon Coast.

The cottage is in a peaceful rural setting overlooking a large garden, pony paddocks and private woodlands, making it an ideal holiday cottage for those looking for a quiet place to stay but with easy access to some of Devon’s best beaches.

The large conservatory is a warm, bright room used for dining or relaxing whilst admiring the wonderful monkey puzzle tree and the colourful garden.

This room leads into the cosy sitting room with electric fire and a soft comfy sofa, perfect for putting your feet up in front of the TV and watching a movie.

There is a handy ground floor bedroom and bathroom plus two double bedrooms upstairs, one benefiting from an en-suite shower room.

The enclosed rear patio is reached from the kitchen, and is a lovely sunny spot for eating your breakfast.

The lawned area is enclosed by tall hedging, which makes it an ideal private area for relaxing and having an evening barbecue, whilst overlooking the paddock and woodland beyond.

Guests are able to wander into the privately owned woods running alongside a stream, and full of roaming deer, interesting birds and badger tracks.

A mile from the cottage is a 16th century coaching inn serving locally sourced produce and farther down the road is the wonderful Broomhill Sculpture Gardens with award-winning restaurant and host of the National Sculpture Prize, making a great day out.

The wonderful North Devon beaches are only ten minute drives’ away and offer long sandy beaches such as Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe.

The harbour town of Ilfracombe has a lively heritage harbour where local boats are available for trips and fishing; or a special day out by ferry to Lundy Island plus a host of welcoming pubs and restaurants, Damien Hirst's Verity statue, and the quirky looking Landmark Theatre.

A welcoming cottage in a quiet spot close to lovely beaches and coastal walks.

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.
