The property

Resting on the edge of the market town of Bideford in North Devon is this traditional thatched cottage, Annery Cottage.

As you arrive at this delightful Devonshire retreat you will notice the character of the property with the original thatched roofing and quirky windows.

From the off-road parking space enter the cottage from the rear where you will be greeted by the stunning open-plan kitchen/diner.

Lined with modern flagstone flooring, the kitchen has a fabulous choice of appliances to help prepare your meals, including two range cookers, one of which is a cast iron Stanley cooker while the other is an electric AGA cooker, while around the corner is a charming dining room where everyone can gather to enjoy a feast and discuss the holiday so far.

The sitting room is where you can spend your down time relaxing on the sofa with the roar of the fire to keep you toasty.

Completing the downstairs of this Bideford cottage is a large shower room where you can prepare for the day.

The bedrooms are perfectly arranged for families, boasting a king-size, a double and two twins, serviced by a gleaming family bathroom where you can sooth your muscles after a day of rambling the outdoors.

Lounge in the garden patio whilst sipping on a refreshing beverage, taking in the calming surroundings whilst considering where next in Devon to explore.

Take a short drive into Bideford and explore the many delights of this town, including the pannier market and heritage railway, along with a whole host of restaurants and pubs to indulge in.

Head to Westward Ho! Beach and surf the rolling waves, or visit Saunton Sands and Croyde for a greater array of water-based activities.

For the shopaholics of the group, the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre is just a ten-minute drive away, while hikers can explore the wonders of the Hartland Devon Heritage Coastline and the Exmoor National Park further afield.

Delight in a welcoming holiday retreat in Devon with your loved ones at Annery Cottage.

About the location


Westward Ho! 3 miles; Appledore and Instow 3.5 miles; Clovelly 11 miles; Saunton Sands 16 miles; Bude 25 miles.

Bideford is an historic maritime town on the River Torridge in North Devon. There has been a settlement at Bideford for over a thousand years and it has been an important port throughout its history. Today, Bideford is a thriving town with a fine selection of shops (including individual shops), cafes and restaurants, a park and the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre located on the outskirts of the town. Bideford is in a fantastic location to explore the surrounding area. It is just a few miles from Westward Ho!, which is dominated by two miles of spectacular coastline and proudly retains the prestigious Blue Flag award year upon year. Its sandy beach, backed by a unique pebble ridge, attracts visitors from all over the country and offers fantastic bathing and watersport activities. Just beyond the pebble ridge is Northam Burrows Country Park, which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has 253 hectares of grassy coastal plain with salt marsh, sand dunes and grasslands. The country park is also home to England's oldest golf course. The South West Coastal Path and the famous traffic-free Tarka Trail are close by, providing magnificent walking and cycling opportunities. The award-winning Big Sheep all weather family attraction and the Ultimate Adventure Centre are approximately a mile down the road, with the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre and Supermarket a couple of miles away. The delightful quayside village of Appledore and the pretty beach at Instow are both just over three miles away, whilst the traditional market town of Barnstaple is just ten miles away, and the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly, with its quaint cobbled streets, is eleven miles away. The North Devon coast also boasts numerous outstanding beaches, many within easy reach, including those found at Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde, Woolacombe and Bude. This is an area of breathtaking beauty, with plenty to see and do for all ages.

Region Information

Broadband / WiFi - It is intermittent due to the location. Options to improve it are being looked into but due to the copper cabling into Saltrens it is poor at best and occasionally drops-off for periods of time.
