The property

With an idyllic location for exploring the beautiful county of Devon, Old Hammetts, a converted wing of the owner's Grade II listed longhouse is nestled on the outskirts of the village of Woolsery.

This charming cottage dating back to the 15th century oozes lots of character and stands within the owners 2.5 acre grounds which you and your loved ones can leisurely explore during you stay.

The longhouse originates from a historic Devon Hall House near Buckmills, Clovelly and Hartland, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Enter through a useful boot room, to be greeted with a well-appointed kitchen/diner and a lovely sitting room presenting comfortable seating, you will feel straight at ease with all the modern conveniences to hand.

Upstairs are two nicely presented bedrooms with built-in basins for your convenience and the double room comprises a delightful feature fireplace.

To the exterior are peaceful gardens with flourishing wildlife and verdant lawn for you to sit out and enjoy a tranquil atmosphere.

The dramatic coasts of both Devon and Cornwall are within a short drive and the delightful port town of Bideford has a good selection of town amenities, restaurants, a weekly market and boat trips to Lundy Island.
