    The arrival pack was exceptional and the accommodation far exceeded our expectations. It was a great advert for Sykes Cottages and we will always look at Sykes first again for another cottage based break. Thanks very much.

Designed with couples in mind, you and your loved one can turn this holiday into a relaxing or adventure filled getaway.

Steps lead up to the entrance, where you will be welcomed by a comfortable open-plan lounge area, which is a lovely spot to relax morning through to evening.

Doors open out to a balcony which overlooks an amazing view of the countryside, worth admiring on a sunny afternoon.

All the amenities you need are on hand in the well-equipped kitchen, and the dining area is the perfect place to relax after preparing a home cooked meal.

The king-size bedroom is your night time escape for a peaceful sleep, elevated by a Velux window that invites the outside in.

A classic en-suite shower room joins the layout, complete to a high standard, and well-placed for getting ready ahead of your trips.

This property really is the best of both worlds by being right in the countryside but with any amenities that you could require within a stone's throw away.

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.
