This smart cottage attached to an ancient farmhouse is two miles from Combe Martin village and three miles from the great beach.
With an upside down layout and traditional Devon farm location, it is a peaceful, relaxing cottage for families or friends.
From the hall with practical slate floor, you head up the stairs to your sitting room, a cosy place with electric fire for watching TV or the glimpse of the sea.
Prepare and enjoy meals in the proper country style kitchen with dining table and glass doors to a balcony, from which you can get down to the garden.
The upstairs double bedroom is a romantic place for couples to chill out, with its en suite bathroom with a bath made for two.
You will find the other two bedrooms downstairs, both with handy en suite too.
Outside the star feature is a hot tub in an adapted barn, big enough for five people to soak in after a long country walk, and complete with changing room with shower and furniture for eating outdoors.
Enjoy games or a good book in the generous lawn garden with barbecue.
This is a lovely uncrowded coastline to enjoy.
The beach at Combe Martin is sheltered and you can safely swim or hire kayaks here, and maybe even catch a thrilling glimpse of dolphins.
Bring your buckets because to either side of the beach are fabulous rock pools.
The village has all you need in the form of shops and pubs, as well as a wildlife park, or walk the Coast Path to interesting Lynmouth and the funicular railway.
Woolacombe and Saunton have all the sand and surf you could wish for, or head to Ilfracombe where you can board a boat to Lundy Island.
Owls Roost is a very special place, loved by the farming family owners, and the friendly atmosphere is wonderful.
