Berrynarbor 1.7 miles.
An interesting cottage on a 100-acre farm on the spectacular North Devon coast, surrounded by green meadows and overlooking the sea from its high vantage point above Watermouth Castle.
Formerly the holiday home of the actor Terry-Thomas, and with a welcoming feel throughout, this quirky cottage tells a story.
The ground floor sitting room is comfy while the kitchen is modern and colourful.
However the focus of the cottage is sure to be the spacious first floor bedroom, with a 6’ super king-size bed and amazing sea views across the channel.
The cottage is adjacent to the owners’ farmhouse but has its own private lawn with seating and sea views.
Guests are welcome to wander around the grassy 100-acre farm, which also has a discreet area for camping lower down the hillside, hidden from view but with a useful shop offering freshly baked croissants to order.
The cottage is a five minute walk from the coastal path, and a couple of miles from the unspoilt village of Berrynarbor, with a welcoming pub and village shop.
At nearby Ilfracombe, Damian Hirst's 'Verity' statue rests above the picturesque harbour, and the bustling seafront has many good-quality restaurants and bars along with small independent shops.
Explore Watermouth Castle, the award-winning Tunnels beach and Combe Martin Wildlife Park, all of which are close to the cottage.
The dramatic North Devon coastline will appeal to walkers and a fifteen minute drive from Berrynarbor is the 3-mile long sandy beach at Woolacombe which holds the 'England for Excellence Gold Award' for best family resort and was voted the Best British Beach in the Mail On Sunday.
A romantic retreat with breathtaking views.
About the location

The tranquil, picturesque village of Berrynarbor is situated at the coastal end of the beautiful Sterridge Valley, and is surrounded by dense woodlands and farms.
