The property

This fabulous, semi-detached barn conversion is part of a group of cottages in a rural location, two miles from Hartland, a picturesque coastal village in North Devon.

Once a dairy, now a cheerful, well-lit contemporary holiday home with oak floors and doors, bright furnishings and a welcoming feel, this wonderful property is situated in an idyllic, peaceful location, just two fields from the South West Coast Path and the dramatic Bideford Bay area.

The front door leads into an open plan living space, with a tall vaulted ceiling, oak beams and patio doors opening out into the rear courtyard, which is enclosed and a real sun trap, ideal for breakfasts and barbecues.

The living space is ideal for four, having a two-seater sofa and two armchairs, plus a dining table for four.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor; a twin and a very small room for children with bunk beds, along with a shower room.

Upstairs is a double bedroom and a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower.

There are plenty of quiet, leafy lanes, typical of Devon, to stroll along from the cottage with the dog, and the Hartland coastline, much of it owned by The National Trust, is a beautiful stretch of rugged unspoilt cliffs, sheltered valleys and ancient woodlands.

Visit the charming fishing village of Clovelly overlooking the harbour, and try and spot the donkeys trundling up the hill with their packages.

Popular resorts to visit also include Saunton Sands, Instow, Westward Ho! and Woolacombe.

This stunning cottage provides the family with a huge variety of activities nearby, all year round.
