    “The cottage and the garden are brilliant.”

    We had a fantastic time

The property

Barnstaple 3.5 miles: A characterful, detached bungalow sat in a beautiful valley location near the town of Barnstaple in Devon.

The magnificent views from this property are achieved because the cottage is elevated and there are about 38 steps winding up to the top.

The steps may not be suitable for everyone, so please take this into consideration when booking. With the comfortable living areas and prime location, this is the ideal cottage for friends or couples to come and enjoy a break away from the hustle and bustle.

You enter the property via a hallway, which leads you into the bright and airy living dining room, set with cosy sofas, dining furniture, a FreeSat TV and a stunning woodburning stove, a great spot to put your feet up and relax.

Across the hall are the two bedrooms, both with comfortable beds and plenty of storage to make you feel at home.

The kitchen is at the end of the hall and is wonderfully furnished with oak fixtures and fittings and all of the appliances you will need whilst you're here at Muddykins Cottage.

When the sun comes out, take your pick of the several sitting areas that come with the cottage, sit and take in the outstanding views that are on offer.

Muddykins Cottage is on the edge of a Dark Sky Reserve area, Exmoor, which is the largest in Europe where it is possible to see stars more clearly because there is less light pollution.

The property comes in a rather secluded spot, with the nearest well-stocked town being Barnstaple, it offers a great range of amenities as well as a river, shopping centre, cinema and a choice of parks to enjoy.

If you fancy a trip to the beach, Saunton Sands is within driving distance, a beautiful stretch of sand.

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.
