    “The cottage was delightful, although rather spoilt by a plague of hornets.”

    Even when all doors and windows were closed, they still came in, and they were buzzing round the garden all the time.. But I can't blame Sykes Holidays or the owners of the cottage for that! ...

    Even when all doors and windows were closed, they still came in, and they were buzzing round the garden all the time.. But I can't blame Sykes Holidays or the owners of the cottage for that! The cottage would benefit from a proper chest of drawers in the main bedroom, and somewhere to plug in a hairdryer near a mirror. The lighting was poor. The kitchen, bathroom and drawing room were really nice and the garden could be lovely if the trees were cut back a bit. At the moment (September) it got very little sunshine.

The property

This pretty thatched detached cottage is located beside a bridlepath in the Cottwood valley on the edge of Riddlecombe.

With lovely countryside views, this is an excellent retreat for peace and relaxation.

From the big hall head through to the spacious kitchen with extensive equipment, wood burning stove and a dining area.

Kick back and chill out beside the wood burning stove in the huge fireplace in the country style sitting room.

When the sun sinks, head upstairs to your three bedrooms, all comfortable and welcoming.

For sitting outside, take the gate through to your enclosed garden on a slope, with its cobbled terrace and pretty secluded area with pond, decking and lawn.

This is a tranquil area with great walks through woods and beside the river with wildlife to spot, or perhaps go fishing or tee off at one of the two nearby golf courses.

The Tarka Trail is fabulous for walkers or cyclists of all ages.

Dolton village is small but offers no less than three cosy pubs, or Torrington is an ancient town with more on offer.

RHS Rosemoor is stunning for gardeners or anyone who loves a flower display.

Hope Cottage is a bolthole for all things lovely.
